i know… i know… but this one is like seriously important.
So, TLC was on Arsenio Hall when they addressed rumors that they were HIV positive, stemming from their frequent wearing condoms and possibly T-Boz’s illness which was later revealed to be Sickle Cell. Anyway, when they addressed the rumors, they made sure to make the point that demonizing someone for being HIV positive definitely not the thing to do.
Left Eye: “I think if we had AIDS, that would be all the more reason to listen to us.”
T-Boz: “Some people do get naive or mess up, but if we had messed up like that it’s nothing to look down on us for. You should look at it like a learning lesson.”
and then when Arsenio tried to make a joke about them wearing condoms on their clothes (after the discussion no less), they remained clear in that safe sex was no joke to them.
Chilli: “We throw them [condoms] out every night at the show”.
it starts at about 5:45, after a performance of one of my favorites “Hat 2 The Back”…. love that damn song…
Hat to the back, i gotta keep my pants down real low
that’s the kind of girl I am.
Being that i am the kind of girl that i am, some people just don’t understand the things that i do….
So I’m not the only one still on my TLC kick. I’ve watched this interview a few times over the past week.
Like I said, NOBODY did what TLC did, stop trying to compare other groups to them! STOP!!
Hat 2 the Back is also one of my faves. Bout to go listen to it now.
just fucked grant with a strap on a+
When I asked male interview subjects what they would like to do in bed, “ejaculation on a woman’s face” was most often at the top of their lists. But when I asked them what the attraction of this act was and whether it meant anything, their initial response was puzzlement. They had never given it much thought. With time for reflection, however, most came up with answers very similar to those of the pornographers I interviewed: it is about controlling women, doing something disgusting to them. It’s like spitting or urinating on them.
Thus something unsettling about gender relationships mediated by pornography is revealed: on-screen male domination is sugar-coated — portrayed as causing women ecstasy — which in turn arouses further desire on the part of the male viewers: the desire to experience the pleasure derived from control and aggression. And deep down, these viewers understand it. “The second you have an orgasm and that passion sinks out of your body, and you’re still watching the movie, you start to really see what’s going on,” one male college student said. “This is not sexy. This is not sex. This is not how I want to experience sex.”
my favorite review is from the official website:
“…With it’s two settings, “de-stresser” and “did I just time travel?”
this has totally convinced me to invest.
Mines broke after two months. I was pissed.
You have to be careful when buying a Magic Wand, counterfeits happen.
I use my Hitachi a lot. It’s my go to sneaky-orgasm-in-the-night toy, and it’s a blast to use on cam. I’ve had mine for about a year now, and while he isn’t a pretty as he used to be…and seems to have become louder… it’s still an amazing giver of orgasms. I’m going to be so sad when I finally kill my magic wand. I may have to hold a memorial service for it.I love you baby Miss Linda & Hitachi 4evaaa
My Hitachi is the best boyfriend I’ve ever had! <3 Love you boo
Too scared to try it but reblogging for anyone who might be interested.I HAD ONE! two long years and i fucking loved it: i frayed the cord (from intense use i suppose) and it died. all in all not too bad for $70. only cons are the noise—it’s pretty loud—and the cord, but it should definitely be JUST what you need, sisters.
I’ve had my hitachi for over 2 years and it’s still loving me right. I love you H <3
ERIN RILEY’S TABOO TAPESTRY
Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work.
Erin’s work will be showing at Philadelphia based Paradigm Gallery + Studio from August 30th - October 12th, 2013. Hope you can make it out, these tapestries are sure to stir up a dialogue.
Oh my god that condom is fucking beautiful
