Kamala Harris: Is She Really the Nation's Foxiest AG?

Posted By on Fri, Apr 5, 2013 at 12:45 PM

  • Va-va-va-voom!

President Obama yesterday calling out Kamala Harris as, "by far, the best-looking Attorney General," was, unquestionably, an odd moment. It was a clunky thing to do for a man with strong reputations as both an egalitarian and a glib orator; it'd be akin to watching Richard Petty driving slowly in the left lane with his blinker signal on.

Obama's Construction Worker-in-Chief turn certainly provided much fodder to various denizens of the Internet. But, lost in the back-and-forth was a perplexing question -- is Harris the best-looking AG in the realm, let alone "by far"?

Well, to borrow a phrase from another president, that all depends on what the meaning of is is.

In order to settle this matter, we gazed upon the countenances of every last AG in the nation.

5 Reasons San Francisco Should Maybe Change Its Name to Honor All Sugar Daddies

Posted By on Mon, Mar 4, 2013 at 1:40 PM

Home sweet home - SUGARDADDIE.COM
  • Home sweet home, a dating website that pairs flush businessmen with broke babes, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in a truly bizarre fashion -- by trying to get a town to rename itself after the site.

At first, the company was only approaching towns that already had the word "sugar" in their name, such as Sugar Land, Texas. But after getting shot down in the Lone Star State, expanded its wacky business concept to California.

Now, the company is trying to cajole the wealthy town of Woodside down on the Peninsula, to finally do something that will put itself on the map. In exchange for the naming rights of Woodside, is offering the already cash-rich town $11.65 million.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Responds to SF Weekly Cover Story, and SF Weekly Responds to That Response

Posted By on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 1:38 PM

Editor's Note: In response to this week's cover story, "Gag Order,"'s CEO Peter Acworth issued a statement which suggests that SF Weekly's Kate Conger used unreliable e-mails as the basis for much of her research and that the story was hastily assembled. In fact, Kate has been working on the story since June 2012 when she was researching the controversy over Kink's "cam girls." As for the e-mails, the story was reworked to remove any mention or discussion of those e-mails or the allegations they contain.

Below is a statement from Kink in italics; our responses to those points are in bold.

Did You See All Those People Running in Their Underwear This Weekend? (Photos)

Posted By on Mon, Feb 11, 2013 at 11:35 AM

Last week, we informed readers about the annual Cupid's Undie run, which took place in the Marina over the weekend. It's exactly what it sounds like -- a bunch of fun-loving folks running in their underwear for charity (we think they were sober).

Of course, plenty of you opted out of this panty party, probably to donate to your own personal charity, whether it be nursing a hangover or catching up on sleep. In any event, don't fret; we grabbed some memorable images of this boxer brouhaha.

"Cleavage Appreciation Day" Is a Thing. Who Knew?

Posted By on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 at 1:25 PM


Appreciation, indeed
  • Appreciation, indeed
our humble narrator has just been informed that today is "Cleavage Appreciation Day" -- which, we assumed prior to this notification, was simply any day ending in a "y."

We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto. Can you imagine telling the teenagers of 1990 that, in the future, they could unwittingly stumble across photos like these? The Internet has done to tracking down photos of scantily clad women what the washing machine did for laundry, reducing a back-breaking, dirty chore to something one can do without even leaving the home.

Anyhow, enough philosophizin'. Here's some Twitterin':

He's like the Willy Wonka of safe sex
  • He's like the Willy Wonka of safe sex

This news should bring some long-lasting pleasure to San Francisco's condom crusaders who are trying to blanket the city with free rubbers: The nation's sexually active report being just as excited when using rubbers during sex as they are during bare-backing sessions.

A new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that both men and women were plenty satisfied with their orgasms, describing them as pleasurable and arousing whether a condom was used or not.

UC College Girls Tap Sugar Daddies for Tuition

Posted By on Tue, Jan 15, 2013 at 8:45 AM

  • Class of 2013

UC college chicks don't need daddy to pay for school and all those four-year parties anymore, but what they do need are their sugar daddies.

A new poll claims that an increasing number of female students from UC Berkeley and UC Davis are tapping sugar daddies for college tuition -- high fees and crippling education budgets are rarely good things, but they are if you're a would-be sugar daddy.

According to, a sugar daddy website, there's been a 67 percent increase in the number of female students attending UC Berkeley who signed up for the online service, specifically to find a sugar daddy who will help fund their education, dorm expenses and weekend fun.

When you think about it, that's actually kinda smart.

UC Merced Sex Toy Event Riles Central Valley Conservatives

Posted By on Fri, Dec 7, 2012 at 3:33 PM


While San Francisco will spend more than $200,000 on condoms next year to ensure we're all stockpiled with rubbers, students at UC Merced reportedly got a spanking for hosting a much-desired sex toy event on campus.

And that's the one of the many differences between the Central Valley and the Bay Area.

Sex in the Library: Kids Have Fun, Librarians Gripe, and the Internet Explodes

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 5:55 AM

Huh. The library can be an interesting place.
  • Huh. The library can be an interesting place.

We're late to the party, admittedly. But it has come to our attention that the sex columnist for U.C. Berekley's Daily Californian wrote an autobiographical column about coitus in the library -- and the Internet has reacted.

Per the column, the writer argues in favor of sex in the library. A commenter claiming to be a U.C. Berkeley librarian argues against it (we'll reprint that comment, which may be the most entertaining thing you read all day, below).

On a personal note, however, I found this deeply entertaining for reasons that have little to do with reading a young woman's account of public sex.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
