Sorry guys, but you’re going to have to ride shotgun from now on. Women are better drivers than men and a study even proves it. A study conducted by Privilege Insurance has concluded that ‘After years of debate and banter comes the news that will have men running for cover. It is now official: women are actually better drivers than men’.
Got to love this collection of the women in classical art paintings rejecting prospective suitors, with hilariously dubbed subtitles by Seth D Michaels. Goes to show that classical art is not always about the male gaze but really open to interpretation.
While the pill has been around for over 50 years, it took quite a long time to come up with a fuss-free method of contraception. Before the pill’s creation, there were some really awful ways to prevent pregnancy, and non-profit organization EngenderHealth has come up with a video to show us of all those methods. […]
All right, 27-year-old artist Michael Lee Lunsford initiated a ‘fully-clothed’ makeover on female superheroes sometime last year. While it’s not supposed to make a statement about the clothes (or the lack thereof) of usually scantily-clad female superheroes, we must say it takes a bit getting used to seeing them all covered up. They don’t look […]

Masha Mel is an amazing fashion photographer based in London. Mostly shooting women, Mel has a way of capturing the inner (and outer) beauty in each of her models. Her work spreads along a spectrum of Spring Breakers (the movie) looking girls to serious runway model attire.
The Pre-Raffaelites knew the allure of the scantily-clad babe, but did their maidens frolic amongst Coke cans and Chupa Chups? Nope. For a pop-culture twist on the feminine form, Australian painter Ken Gailer delivers the goodies. If art were food, his paintings would be a choc-top and popcorn combo deal. Life’s too short for nouveau […]
Self-taught artist Ramon Maiden — who describes himself as a “wanderlust king, ink maniac and dandy delinquent based in Barcelona” and sees the tattoo as a form of artistic expression — works with ink, watercolor and markers to stipple out fantastic works that has him inking vintage illustrations of women, whether these be of Vargas […]
