Loewe Craft Prize Comes to New York

CRAFT MAGIC: Jonathan Anderson continued the tour of the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize exhibition in New York on Thursday. The exhibit started in April in Madrid with a showcase of the 26 finalists of the 4,000 applicants for the inaugural addition of the Craft Prize and is now in New York at the Chamber Gallery through June 6.
“I’ve wanted to do this project since I joined Loewe,” said Anderson, who’s also shooting his Loewe campaign while he’s in town. “It’s really important to support crafts people like this.” The lineup featured work from various disciplines: Pottery by Sangwoo Kim of South Korea, gold and silversmithing by Robert Baines of Australia, lacquering by Igawa Takeshi of Japan, embroidery by Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone of Buenos Aires, weaving by Anne Low of Vancouver, with whom Anderson is collaborating on an upcoming project, and the winning work of wood carving by Ernst Gamperl of Munich, Germany.
Gamperl’s piece, called “Tree of Life 2” is a large wooden vase carved from a 300-year-old oak tree uprooted during a storm. “I plan to make a collection out of it and to keep all the objects together,” he said. “In two or three years it will

Mom Comes Up With Creative Way For Families To Celebrate Rainbow Babies

A mom in Colorado has come up with a colorfully creative way for families to celebrate the arrival of their rainbow babies. The touching project also recognizes her friend’s strength and persistence during her experience with infertility.

Colorado mom Julie Schneider has launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of creating what she calls “Rainbow Hats” for families who have welcomed a rainbow baby, or a baby who is born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. Schneider met with a local hat manufacturer who will make the rainbow-colored hats on antique knitting machines. She told HuffPost her friend, whom she’s known for almost 30 years, inspired the project.

Schneider’s friend, who requested that Schneider not include her name on the Kickstarter page or the Rainbow Hats site, welcomed a rainbow baby with her husband this spring after undergoing IVF for a few years. In December, Schneider traveled to Michigan, where her friend resides, where they met at a Barnes & Noble in Ann Arbor. While there, Schneider gave her friend a rainbow-colored hat she crocheted. Schneider told HuffPost “she loved it right away.”

“It’s become one of her favorite hats,” she said.

Seeing how much her friend adored it, Schneider became inspired to share the idea with other families. She has a $ 15,000 goal for the campaign, which lasts until the end of the month; $ 15,000 will cover the first batch of hats, including the hats her backers will receive as their rewards for donating and shipping costs for sending them. Schneider has turned to a hat manufacturer because of a wrist injury that keeps her from making many hats. 

Schneider designed the hats to come in three sizes. The “baby” size is designed to fit newborns and babies up to a year old. The “little” size covers kids 1 to 6 years of age, and the “big” size is for kids and adults 7 years and older. She also designed them so that wearers can fold the brim up or down.

Schneider told HuffPost that in the future she might include other styles of hats like trucker hats or seek out different fabric manufacturers so she can offer more options. For now, she wants to focus on hats to help families symbolize their love for their rainbow babies.

For more info on Rainbow Hats, head to the official site or to Schneider’s Kickstarter page.

Selfridges’ Braid Bar Comes Under Fire for Lila Moss Campaign Images

CONTROVERSIAL BEGINNINGS: The Braid Bar, a hair braiding service located at Selfridges’ Beauty Workshop, is facing backlash on social media after publishing a preview of its latest campaign featuring Lila Grace Moss, Kate Moss’ daughter, and Stella Jones, daughter of The Clash musician Mick Jones.
The campaign, which was meant to introduce new styles from The Braid Bar’s summer menu, was criticized for its lack of diversity and respect for black culture, given that the hair styles it’s promoting are drawn from black culture.
The campaign shows Moss wearing braces and a gray sweatshirt with The Braid Bar logo, her hair styled in multiple braids with colorful purple extensions.
Following the social media criticism, the Braid Bar issued a statement on its web site apologizing for its lack of cultural sensitivity and expressing its commitment to changing its approach and refreshing its ideas.
“It has come to our attention that we have not given enough consideration to the cultures that we have drawn from in creating The Braid Bar, particularly black culture. Having been naive, our eyes are now open to issues that we were not so aware of when we first started,” the statement said.
“The Braid Bar is a welcoming and fun place

‘Walking Dead’ Actor Daniel Newman Comes Out As LGBT

Walking Dead” actor Daniel Newman opened up about his sexuality publicly for the first time, coming out as LGBT to fans on his social media platforms. 

The 35-year-old star, who has also appeared in “The Dark Night Rises” and “Sex and the City,” first made the announcement on Twitter Thursday evening. 

Though he stopped short of using the words “gay” or “bisexual” in reference to himself, Newman elaborated further in an emotional, nearly-seven-minute YouTube video. The star said he felt compelled to come out after volunteering at a shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth in the clip, which can be viewed below. 

“I was helping out and volunteering at some homeless youth shelters, and this girl came up to me. She was like, ‘Thank you so much for helping out with [LGBTQ kids], and she said it like she didn’t deserve it,” Newman said. “She said, ‘Because you’re straight.’” When the actor told the girl that he wasn’t, in fact, straight, she informed him that coming out could “help change our lives.”

That encounter, he said, “hit me like a gut punch. I realized how important it is, in this day and age, to be visible, have people know who you are.” After noting that he wanted to to steer clear of politics, he added, “You see at this moment how rights are getting stripped from people so quickly. Who are the easiest people to take rights from? People that are invisible, people that are staying silent.” 

“When you are accomplishing incredible things and you’re hiding who you are, you’re hurting hundreds of millions of people,” he said. “So, by us staying quiet, we’re partially to blame for kids getting beat up and ridiculed, stereotypes and stigmas. If you don’t like them, you need to be visible, to change them.” He went to offer praise for men who have been labeled “sissies” for their effeminate behavior, noting, “They’re the strongest because they didn’t have a choice. Those guys are incredible and so, so amazing.”  

In a Friday interview with People, Newman cited his southern upbringing as the reason why he’d remained silent about his sexuality until this week. “I didn’t really think about it really as hiding. I never thought of myself as being in a closet or hidden,” he said. “It just was that I didn’t really feel like talking about my private life.”

Thrilled to see you living authentically, Daniel!

Chalayan Comes Home to London

CHANNEL HOP: London Fashion Week isn’t just a hotbed of emerging talent. Established designers have their place, too. After 16 years of showing his women’s wear collections in Paris, London-based Hussein Chalayan returned to London to show his Chalayan fall 2017 collection on Saturday.
After the show, which he presented at Sadler’s Wells Theater (a venue he’s used in the past, and the site of a collaboration with a contemporary dance company last year) Chalayan laid out his reasons for coming back.
“We left London, as we felt we were making this very big effort…but a lot of people weren’t coming to London at that time. And we felt for business we had to go to Paris – and when we moved to Paris our business grew considerably,” he said. “These days it’s different. You have to remember that digital media, the whole thing, was not as developed as it is now – it was a different life.”
Chalayan also showed his first men’s runway collection in January during London Fashion Week Men’s. And in 2015, the designer debuted a sleek store on Mayfair’s Bourdon Street. Asked whether he’ll continue to show his women’s collection in London, the designer was noncommittal.

When Death Comes in Close

I’m so acutely aware of Death in the field right now.

Always with us, Death is. And yet I’ve been carefully and heartfully tracking, as I know so many of us have been, the very recent deaths of several people in close social circles of mine; noticing the holy ripples these deaths create, through the hearts of loved ones, and everyone their lives then touch — rippling out, making waves, through the sacred web and field of life we blessedly share.

Whether it’s a death from heart-wrenching suicide, or after a long-battled physical disease, or due to a tragic accident, or as a sudden, unexpected surprise, there’s nothing like Death Medicine to bring us so intimately close with the mysterious, precarious edge of aliveness we live with: our precious mortal breath pressed up against the holy, vast unknown.

We wailingly grieve our lost one, fluctuating between glorious celebration of our beloved’s beauty, humbled gratitude to have been blessed with such a miraculous love, and then utter devastation in the face of our losing them, and our world losing them. Sometimes reveling in bittersweet joy and relief upon the passing, knowing that the suffering their life may have included has been released, transmuted and transcended now; they are flying free.

Or perhaps we carefully watch from the periphery those closest in to the loss; our hands resting on our tender, beating hearts, empathizing, bowing, sending love, sending prayers that their grieving hearts might just keep breaking open even wider into the love that holds it all.

Counting our blessings, cherishing those closest to us, while knowing it is truly just a matter of time before we all return to the other side.

When Death comes in close enough to touch us personally, we think of everyone we love so dearly, and remember, at least for a moment, that all form is temporary and fleeting, and know that we, along with all of life, are present here, embodied like this in our world, for only a brief moment.

We look down at our own slowly aging hands, our own bodies, breathing, full of blessed life for now. We pull our beloved children in close to us, and breathe their scent deeply in. We behold our lovers, our parents, our furry creatures, our dear friends, and even those we don’t know, and see them through fresh eyes, taking in their light, their warmth, their utterly unique beauty.

With Death Medicine close we remember to notice what it feels like as the soles of our feet touch the earth, and as the sun kindly lifts our face to kiss us, we notice the sweet smell of flowers on the wind. We revel at sunsets and starshine. We wonder at the mysterious animating force filling these bodies, infusing these senses, only for a time.

We notice when we’re dancing how much gravity loves us to lean in and taste this delicious place where breath and sweat, music and movement allow us to be taken, swallowed up by Life’s aliveness.

We notice, in Death’s presence, if we’re lucky, what, if anything, at this moment of our lives is still left for us unlived; what remains unspoken, unblessed, unthanked, unacknowledged, unforgiven, unloved, unsung?

We notice what we’ve been postponing, and we feel the sacred urge to leap.

We notice our fear of really loving and living life in the way we yearn too. And then we notice our even deeper fear: of waiting even another instant to show up fully for these lives of love we took birth for. What did we come to say, to give, to live, to serve? And what on earth are we waiting for?

We notice that we are alive, and we are surrounded, literally surrounded and graced: by the living and the dying and the dead. Led by the light of our ancestors and the dreams of our unborn great-grandchildren.

And we notice that we truly love to live, to take our humble place in the great circle of life, and we confess quietly to our own hearts how vulnerable we feel in this love and this aliveness.

We pray for right relationship with all of life. We pray for clarity, humility, maturity, discipline, discernment, dignity and integrity. We pray for wisdom, empathy, truth, kindness and compassion.

And then we bow to one another and to ourselves. We bow to this Death Medicine that never fails to shake our hearts awake to Life. We stand at the threshold of inevitable death, and we say to Life: “I give in. I surrender. Yes.”

Setting the Record Straight: The Nutcracker Comes to America

2015-07-18-1437180664-3334767-Nutcracker_cover.jpg

The clichéd rivalry between the East and West Coasts of the United States confounds those of us who grew up in distant lands. When it comes to ballet, in particular, many American balletomanes appear oblivious to the bustle outside the precincts of New York City.

On the subject of The Nutcracker, for example, many subscribe to the myth that George Balanchine’s 1954 reinvention of the Russian classic for New York City Ballet “sparked an American holiday tradition” — in the words of Laura Jacobs, who penned a fascinating exploration of Balanchine’s Nutcracker for Vanity Fair, even as she played fast and loose with the essential detail of the ballet’s arrival on American shores.

Other scholars – like Jennifer Fisher, who wrote a sociological meditation on the industry that now props up most American ballet companies (Nutcracker Nation) – identify Willam Christensen’s 1944 production for San Francisco Ballet as the first full-length American production, whose enormous popularity astonished even its creator.

And now a captivating children’s book arrives to set the record straight for the younger generation.

2015-07-18-1437180781-4647996-Nutcracker_spread.jpg

In The Nutcracker Comes to America, author Chris Barton introduces us to the remarkable Christensen brothers, Willam, Harold and Lew, whose “dance-loving, violin-playing grandfather” emigrated from Denmark and settled in Utah. We follow the young men’s zigzagging journeys from the ballet studio to vaudeville stages across the country, to New York to dance for the greats like Balanchine and Fokine, and into the army, against the backdrop of World War II.

Lew, the most naturally gifted of the three, became the first homegrown American danseur noble, and a choreographer of some repute. For Lincoln Kirstein’s Ballet Caravan, he created Filling Station, a comic slice of Americana set in a gas station populated with “truckers, a gangster, a state trooper, and a little girl who really needed to use the restroom.”

The restless Christensens couldn’t seem to stay put. Which turned out to be providential for American ballet, especially on the West Coast. Willam brought ballet to Portland, Oregon, and later established the formidable Salt Lake City company that would be known as Ballet West. In between, there was San Francisco, where he and Harold spun off the ballet troupe from the opera company, while Lew “traded in his ballet shoes for army boots.”

It was during wartime America, when many dancers were off fighting and money was especially scarce, that Willam needed a big hit “to keep ballet alive in San Francisco.” He loved the great Russian classics and though he’d never seen them performed – at least not in their entirety – he would research them painstakingly. As part of his research for The Nutcracker, he cornered Balanchine and Alexandra Danilova and had them recount for him as much of the detail of the Petipa production as they could recall from their own experience dancing in it.

The Christensens’ peregrinations, and the delightful goings-on onstage and backstage during the first Nutcracker, are illuminated in the arresting illustrations by Cathy Gendron – multiple coatings of thin oil glaze meticulously layered over pencil drawings on gesso, then lightly textured, as if burnished by steel wool. The colors glow softly on the page, and the whimsical yet realistic figures convey energy and emotion that will intrigue adults as much as children.

Ballet to the People‘s favorite drawing is of Lew Christensen on a New York City sidewalk, still in his army uniform, having just returned from wartime service. He is looking wistfully through the windows of a ballet studio while class is in session. The narrative reads: “[Y]ears in the army had done a number on his body. He couldn’t dance like he’d danced before.”

Lew would eventually bring the Balanchine technique and style to San Francisco Ballet in the early 1950’s, when he took over the company reins after Willam moved to Salt Lake City.

Don’t be misled by the book title. This is much more than the story of the transplanting of a famous Russian ballet. And not just a book for little girls who dream of dancing in tutus and pink satin pointe shoes.

This is a real-life adventure story about “a trio of small-town Utah boys” with grit and talent, who bucked stereotypes, endured failures and persevered, and who individually and together enriched the cultural life of America.

For older readers and adults (and dance writers keen to fill in the gaps in their historical knowledge), Barton provides a more detailed timeline at the end of the book, including some marvelous vintage photos.

Throughout the children’s tale and the more grown-up addendum, a light wit prevails, and there is much to read between the lines. About the 1892 premiere of The Nutcracker at the Mariinsky Theatre, Barton comments laconically, “It does not catch on.” And those who are familiar with the hard business of ballet know that it was the Christensens’ sheer determination that kept San Francisco Ballet afloat for decades.

2015-07-18-1437180835-6613679-Nutcracker1.jpg

English critic Richard Buckle famously groused that every Christmas brings us “one more Nutcracker closer to death.”

Yet across America, spurred by the early Christensen and Balanchine productions, and by the popularity of the brilliantly animated ‘Nutcracker Suite’ in Disney’s Fantasia, the ballet has become a hallowed ritual — not just for audiences, but for the legions of young performers who grow up through the ranks of mice, soldiers, Mother Ginger’s children, candy canes, snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and Russian acrobats, their eyes on the prize: the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.

So many of those young dancers in training are unaware of the colorful history behind this tradition. Barton and Gendron’s new book does its bit to fill that gap, with charm and wisdom.

When the Stress Comes to a Head

I have held on to this post for over six weeks, but after listening to Arianna Huffington discuss her “a ha” moment — I decided to share mine. Sometimes we become so enthralled in our work lives it takes over our entire being, and that is not how life is meant to be lived. Arianna stated she wanted us to learn from her experience the importance of de-stressing our lives, and I want the same for all of you. Do not end up like me, in tears and pain, learn from me. You do not have to feel the physical pain to learn, trust me. It’s why I am sharing.

For the last five months I have been questioning the next phase in my life and career. I have always known this summer would be a crossroads, but I never thought I would reach this crossroads in this manner. But alas, I am here.

It all began with my wok life going to shit. A new responsibility ended up being an anxiety attack waiting to happen. The new work was so tedious and demanding, I found myself going to work early or staying late every day. Seeing my email never move from 50 unread after a full day of responding became daunting. I found myself angry every day, feeling like I had been punished for my good work with work I hated, on top of my general responsibilities (oh and of course with no new wage).

The stress came to a head on a Tuesday not too long ago. It had been about two months that I had been feeling this pain in my chest, a pain that had been scaring me. So I finally decided to tell my grandmother, an RN, what I had been feeling. After explaining the pain had spread to my left arm, she said, “Baby, that doesn’t sound good, you need to go to a doctor.” So I listened and called my doctor to make an appointment, but after listing my symptoms, I was told I needed to go to the hospital.

Then I was really scared…

The only thing rushing through my mind was “I can’t leave here yet. I can’t be sick — just give me more time.” The more my mind raced, the more I ached and each pain scared me 10 times more than the last.

But it was ME. I had sent my body into this turmoil, along with some heartburn. My consistent disdain and disgust with my work situation and the added stress the new work had caused gave me such bad anxiety I was having palpations.

My family had been telling me not to stress, but that is easier said than done. I am a worrier — that is my crazy. Thinking of all of the possibilities all the time coupled with being so upset and angry at my situation, watching the emails rain in every day, took my worry to a new level. It wasn’t just can I get out? — but when? Will it be soon?

But that day I finally said forget it, I cannot let this bother me like this. Yes, I loved my job — but the love was now gone and honestly it hurt. But you cannot stay at a job forever, especially not at my age, it is all about progression.

A week after all of this my best friend was hit in a hit and run. Quickly life was put into perspective. There’s no time to devote to emotion that does nothing but harm you. There’s no time to be so stressed you can’t enjoy the one life you have to live.

I am still here (and at my organization) and still learning. The battle with anxiety and stress is an uphill battle, but it is up to us to ensure that we do not let it take us down. Listen to your body and do not let stress take you down. Work is just that — work. And if you drop dead tomorrow, your job will have your position up by the end of the week.

It’s only 40 or 50 out of 168 hours a week for a reason.

Where Our Food Comes from

Where Our Food Comes from


The future of our food depends on tiny seeds in orchards and fields the world over. In 1943, one of the first to recognize this fact, the great botanist Nikolay Vavilov, lay dying of starvation in a Soviet prison. But in the years before Stalin jailed him as a scapegoat for the country’s famines, Vavilov had traveled over five continents, collecting hundreds of thousands of seeds in an effort to outline the ancient centers of agricultural diversity and guard against widespread hunger. Now, another remarkable scientist?and vivid storyteller?has retraced his footsteps. In Where Our Food Comes From, Gary Paul Nabhan weaves together Vavilov’s extraordinary story with his own expeditions to Earth’s richest agricultural landscapes and the cultures that tend them. Retracing Vavilov’s path from Mexico and the Colombian Amazon to the glaciers of the Pamirs in Tajikistan, he draws a vibrant portrait of changes that have occurred since Vavilov’s time and why they matter. In his travels, Nabhan shows how climate change, free trade policies, genetic engineering, and loss of traditional knowledge are threatening our food supply. Through discussions with local farmers, visits to local outdoor markets, and comparison of his own observations in eleven countries to those recorded in Vavilov’s journals and photos, Nabhan reveals just how much diversity has already been lost. But he also shows what resilient farmers and scientists in many regions are doing to save the remaining living riches of our world. It is a cruel irony that Vavilov, a man who spent his life working to foster nutrition, ultimately died from lack of it. In telling his story, Where Our Food Comes From brings to life the intricate relationships among culture, politics, the land, and the future of the world’s food.

Why A Little Competition Can Make Men Way More Generous When It Comes To Charity

Men may be more likely to display generosity for a good cause if there’s a little competition involved.

Researchers from the U.K. examined thousands of online donation pages from last year’s Virgin London Marathon race, as runners had set up personal fundraising platforms to garner support for various charities of their choosing. When it came to large gifts, the researchers found men were itching to out-give other males who’d donated to the same female fundraiser, according to NPR.

On average, male supporters donated 28 British pounds (roughly $ 42) more to attractive women than the previous male donor when the previous male donor gave 50 British pounds (about $ 75) or more.

Independent reviewers rated the attractiveness of each fundraiser analyzed for the study.

“The results were quite surprising, actually, in that they were completely in line with the theory that men are hardwired to act competitively in this way,” said Sarah Smith, one of the researchers from the University of Bristol, according to NPR.

Although Smith found the results unexpectedly on-point, her work isn’t the first to suggest a little competition goes a long way when it comes to fundraising. Research that analyzed JustGiving donors discovered supporters who see a sizable donation before they make their own tended to give more, The Guardian reported.

But competition is far from the only factor that affects if or how much a donor gives. According to the outlet, several components influence one’s inkling to give back, like how big of an impact their gift will have or whether or not they’ve witnessed others donating.

Nichola Raihani of University College London, who partnered with Smith on the research, told NPR their work found a clear difference when it comes to competition and gender. While men may donate to charity in part to show their wealth, “women aren’t competitive with each other in the same way,” the research concluded.

“Coming here is the best thing I’ve ever done, it’s given me the unique freedom of being able to dream however big I want to and know that, with some hard work and persistence, that can happen,” she said.
Currently designing a main line, including a core selection of machine washable, stretch-leather leggings, as well as a diffusion collection, Ivachoff has been pleasantly surprised by the response of Chinese consumers, with stores online (a Taobao store and also Nasty Gal internationally) and multibrand stores in Shanghai and around China doubling their sales from month to month.

When It Comes To Feminism And Reproductive Rights, Survey Says Labels Don’t Work

New research from Vox revealed that while a very small percentage of Americans identify as feminists, the majority still believe in gender equality.

The survey included 1,067 participants from across the U.S. and covered topics including gender equality, LGBT issues and abortion. Twenty-one percent of participants were between 18 and 29 years old, 25 percent were between 30 and 44 years old, 27 percent were between 45 and 59 years old and 27 percent were over 60 years old. About half the participants identified as female and half as male.

Vox found that only 18 percent of Americans consider themselves feminists. Fifty-two percent of survey participants said that they didn’t consider themselves feminists, 26 percent were “unsure” and 4 percent refused to answer the question.

With so few people identifying as feminists, you’d think most Americans wouldn’t support gender equality. Wrong. Vox found that a whopping 85 percent of participants responded that they do “believe in equality for women.” And 76 percent of participants believe there is still work to be done when it comes to “equality for women in work, life and politics.”

While the majority of Americans don’t choose to identify as feminists, they support the ideals of feminism. In the great words of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “Feminism is the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.” It’s really that simple.

The survey found that Americans are equally as confused about where they stand on abortion as feminism. When asked about abortion, only 28 percent of participants agreed with the statement: “Abortion should be legal in almost all cases.”

However, when the survey question incorporated women, the results changed. When people were asked if “women should have a legal right to safe and accessible abortion in almost all cases,” 37 percent said yes.

“That’s a jump of nine percentage points in who thinks abortion ought to be generally legal, just by highlighting the fact that a woman is involved in the situation,” Vox’s Sarah Kliff wrote.

These results indicate just how complicated Americans’ feelings about reproductive rights are. “The public has diverse views on abortion. But it’s rarely a split between ‘abortion is right’ and ‘abortion is wrong,'” Kliff wrote. “Instead, there is a nuance that the public conversation typically misses: a factoring in of personal circumstances and beliefs that manifest themselves in deeply held individual views.”

While many people shy away from labels when it comes to women’s issues, it seems that most agree with the idea behind them: Women should have the same social, political and economic rights as men.

Head over to Vox to read the rest of the research.

8 Things Married Couples Get Wrong When It Comes To Sex

By Jillian Kramer, BRIDES

2014-12-11-issexbeforemarriagestilltaboo.jpg
Photo: Getty Images

“A healthy sex life is a key ingredient to a happy, loving, and lasting marriage,” says sex expert Nikki Ransom-Alfred. Yet, “after the excitement of the wedding day and settling into marriage, couples will often find that the quantity and quality of sex will take a downturn.” So what’s a married couple to do? Check out these eight things you’re likely doing wrong without even knowing it, and have fun correcting the problems beginning tonight!

You’re not doing the deed often enough.
“Sex is how you express love and desire for each other, and connects the two of you on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level,” Ransom-Alfred says. What’s more, when you orgasm, your brain releases dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin — the love hormone — that keeps you crazy about your guy. “Discuss with your partner how often he would like to have sex and then see how you two can compromise so that all parties are satisfied,” Ransom-Alfred suggests. Hint: The more often, the merrier you both will be.

You’re not openly discussing what you want.
“Couples are often embarrassed to discuss sex with each other, even though they have it with each other,” explains Ransom-Alfred. “Some are nervous to talk about their wants and desires for fear of being judged or turned down by the other.” Start by telling your significant other that discussion about sex and sexual desires are a safe zone. Then, “talk with each other about sex acts that you’ve always wanted to try, new sex positions, what turns you on, what turns you off, and more,” Ransom-Alfred says. “This will only enhance your sex life together and enhance your marriage overall.”

You’re playing it safe — and repetitive — when it comes to sex.
“It’s common to become so comfortable in our relationship that we neglect we need to keep our sex lives new, fresh and exciting,” says Ransom-Alfred. “Marriage is forever, and you can’t expect to have the same kind of sex for the rest of your lives. You will indeed get bored in the bedroom and that spells trouble for the marriage.” Ransom-Alfred suggests cracking open the Kama Sutra for inspiration and new positions you could try.

You’re wearing your sweats to bed.
“We definitely need to keep it sexy in the bedroom, whether we’ve been married for two months or two decades,” insists Ransom-Alfred. “Taking the time to be appealing for your partner shows them that you really care about them, about looking good for them and about your marriage.” Make it a habit to slip into something silky when you get under the sheets. “Or wear one of his T-shirts to bed if that’s what he finds sexy,” she says. Of course, you can also go naked, too, and we doubt your husband will complain!

You’re not taking your time with foreplay.
“Discuss foreplay with your partner and ask what they like, what really gets them hot and also how long he wants foreplay,” suggests Ransom-Alfred. “Sexiness starts in the mind, so foreplay should begin well before taking your clothes off.”

You’re not spontaneous enough.
“Sex does not always have to happen at night, nor does it always have to be in the bedroom,” Ransom-Alfred says. “Keep things spontaneous by surprising your partner with a sex session in the morning, in the shower while you two are getting ready, or the middle of the day.” Another tip to keep things extra-hot? “Call your spouse right before lunch and have them meet you at home for a quickie!” she suggests.

You’re not making your bedroom a pleasant place to make love.
“Many couples do not realize it, but the décor in your room will have either a positive or negative effect on your mood,” explains Ransom-Alfred. “If your bedroom looks bland and boring, you will feel the same when you enter it. Your bedroom is your sensual space, so you want to feel sensual when you walk inside of it.” Up the sex factor in your personal space by investing in fresh flowers, scented candles and plush pillows that beckon for romance.

You’re not showing enough non-sexual affection.
“While a slap on the bottom or a sexual grope is hot, be sure to still show your partner affection and love in non-sexual ways such as hugging, massaging and holding them,” advises Ransom-Alfred. That kind of physical love and affection translates outside the bedroom, and last until your next sex session. “The more loved a spouse feels, the more open he or she will be sexually.”

Russell Crowe Comes Under Fire For Saying Actresses Must Act Their Age

In an interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, Russell Crowe made some inflammatory comments about actresses and age-appropriate roles. Crowe’s remarks appeared online two weeks ago, but caught a wave of attention on Monday morning which resulted in accusations of sexism.

Crowe was promoting his directorial debut, “The Water Diviner,” when he spoke about portraying a father of three grown sons in the movie. Saying he couldn’t have played the role 20 years ago, Crowe launched into a sermon about women’s place on the big screen:

The best thing about the industry I’m in — movies — is that there are roles for people in all different stages of life. To be honest, I think you’ll find that the woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40, 45, 48, still wants to play the ingénue, and can’t understand why she’s not being cast as the 21-year-old.

Meryl Streep will give you 10,000 examples and arguments as to why that’s bullshit, so will Helen Mirren, or whoever it happens to be. If you are willing to live in your own skin, you can work as an actor. If you are trying to pretend that you’re still the young buck when you’re my age, it just doesn’t work.

I have heard of an actress, part of her fee negotiation was getting the number of children she was supposed to have lessened. Can you believe this? This [character] was a woman with four children, and there were reasons why she had to have four children — mainly, she lived in a cold climate and there was nothing to do but fornicate all day — so quit arguing, just play the role!

The point is, you do have to be prepared to accept that there are stages in life. So I can’t be the Gladiator forever.

A slew of vitriolic headlines popped up in response to the actor’s remarks. Slate, for example, wrote Russell Crowe Says Older Women Don’t Get Movie Roles Because They Refuse to Act Their Age, while Jezebel published its reaction with the headline Always Full of Shit Russell Crowe Says Actresses Should Act Their Age. Here’s Everything Russell Crowe Got Wrong About Women In Film, Australian site Junkee wrote.

HuffPost Entertainment contacted Crowe’s rep for further comment but did not receive an immediate response.

Pornhub Times Square Billboard Meets Stiff Opposition, Comes Down

It was a case of premature evacuation.

A Pornhub billboard erected Monday in Times Square has come down almost as quickly as it went up.

The sign — which displayed the winning entry in a contest for a non-pornographic ad concept — read, “All You Need Is Hand,” with two hands forming a heart.

But the relatively tame campaign seemed to meet stiff opposition. Pornhub Vice President Corey Price told The Huffington Post the DoubleTree hotel, which occupies the building where the sign was mounted, objected strongly enough to have it removed early Wednesday.

“Our initial agreement with City Outdoor, the company that owns the billboard space, was that we had full approval for the ad to be placed in the initial location,” Price said.

A DoubleTree employee contacted by HuffPost declined to comment. A request for comment to Hilton, the hotel’s parent company, was not immediately returned.

Now Pornhub is scouting alternative sites for the ad in New York City and other metropolitan areas, Price said.

But the mainstream campaign hasn’t gone away entirely. To bolster the marketing, Pornhub put together a video with the Gotham Rock Choir that melds the Beatles’ classic “All You Need Is Love” with Pornhub’s “All You Need Is Hand” parody version.

We’re not sure the Fab Four would have approved, but what the heck:

Death Comes for Three

Death Comes for Three


It was the social event of the year in the small subdivision called Enchanted Pecan Groves. Everybody attending this event had a great time. The Victorian theme party at the Cobblestones house would be remembered by all of the party goers for a long time. The party was given in an elaborate Victorian design with all the proper designs and props… The decorations were authentic and so were the costumes. A small Chamber orchestra filled the house with beautiful music from long ago. The food was delicious and ever one had a wonderful time. The party was not very big it was rather an exclusive affair, but never the less no expenses and/or effort was spared to make this event live on in every ones mind for years. The person of the day was the Cobblestones daughter Victoria it was her 9th birthday. Victoria adored the Victorian time and she asked her parents if she could live one day just as if it was the year 1840. Being an only child and of course spoiled and loved by her parents the little girl got her wish. The date of the party was August the 13th a Friday, and the heat had soared all day long; it was the hottest most humid month of August any one could remember. But that didn’t take any ones excitement for this party away. Victorian costumes had been ordered and especially the women had quite a bit of clothing to wear. The air conditioning units were working overtime to keep all party guests comfortable. Oh what an elaborate affair it was, family and friends commented that this was the absolute best time they ever had together. Hundred’s of pictures were taken to remember every detail, without a doubt this party would be remembered forever. No one in attendance knew why though; because what they didn’t know was the fact- that Evil was at the party. Death came to the party to claim three lives after the party was over. It was midnight when the gruesome affair was discovered by a neighbor. The neighbor called the police and they began an intensive investigatio

This New Calendar Proves Sexy Comes In MANY Sizes

It’s no secret that here at HuffPost Style, we’re obsessed with real women, real bodies, and really great fashion. So naturally, we were thrilled to find out that online bathing suit mecca SwimsuitsForAll was releasing a 12-month calendar, featuring plus-size model Robyn Lawley, one of our favorite bloggers Gabi Gregg and a slew of other gorgeous, curvy women.

Gregg has had a long standing relationship with the site, having designed two (amazing) bathing suits for them. Lawley, on the other hand, is arguably one of the most famous names in the business, with a Cosmopolitan Australia cover under her belt and a potential spot in the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue next year. Who better than these two, then, to model some of the brand’s new designs?

With their gorgeous figures and radiant confidence, these women just may be giving Sports Illustrated a run for their money. As the industry takes steps toward a hopeful, more inclusive future, we hope this move will push other companies and mags to follow suit.

Ellen Page Comes Out As Gay

Ellen Page, the star of the movie “Juno,” announced that she was gay before an audience at a Human Rights Campaign event in Las Vegas, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Human Rights Campaign posted the news on its Twitter account.

The 26-year-old actress told the crowd “I’m here today because I am gay,” adding “and because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

Page was speaking at the Human Rights Campaign’s THRIVE conference, an event supporting LGBTQ youth. Page spoke of the pressures of a life in the spotlight, and the toll that celebrity can take on one’s life.

“It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing — at least in some sense — an industry that places crushing standards on all of us,” the star of the upcoming movie “X-Men: Days of Future Past” said. “Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success. Standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Page expressed displeasure with gender stereotyping, and pointed to examples of “courage all around us,” including football player Michael Sam, “Orange Is the New Black” star Laverne Cox and musicians Tegan and Sara Quinn.

The Human Rights Campaign posted Page’s remarks online. Watch the amazing warm reception to her coming out at minute 5:20 in the video above posted by the Human Rights Campaign.

Page has previously advocated for women’s empowerment and lamented sexism in the entertainment industry.
