Don't Be a Slut's Best of the Blogosphere - 2/7/09

It's that time again ... my whenever-I-feel-like it recap of some of the blogs and blog posts that have stuck in my mind over the last few weeks.

Best Ridiculous Stripper Story
It's nowhere near as traumatic as the time I was heckled by a strip-club clown, and it's even funnier when you consider the source. Jennifer is a sweet, loving, 20-something wife who wants a baby really, really bad – so bad she’s devoted an entire blog to how much she wants a baby.

My favorite Baby Makin(g) Machine posts are the ones where she contemplates things like buying shoes for her unborn son, making hair ribbons for her unborn daughter, or wearing a different bikini every day of the week during a romantic cruise with her hubby.

But it's nice to know I'm not the only woman who's run afoul of America's stripper obsession. Jennifer, armed with a Carmen Electra video, decides to get in shape by stripping. Hijinks ensue.

Good Man of the Month
Even though I've been single for a decade, it's nice to know that real men and real marriages do exist. Meet Eric, a husband and father of two from NYC. His blog, Makes Me Wanna Holler, is his take on the joys, pains and pressures of being a family man. One day he might describe how he shared President Obama's inauguration with his kids. Another day, he might grumble about his wife's granny panties.

But through it all, you see a dad and a husband who really loves his family.

That love is graphically demonstrated in my favorite post, when Eric takes his wife out on a date. I won't give away any plot points, but a man really has to love a woman to go through what he went through just to put a smile on his wife's face.

Scholarly and Thought Provoking, Without Being Strident
One of my favorite blogs is Saroj on the Issues. Saroj is a smart, pretty grad student who writes Facebook status messages like "Saroj is reading about signal transduction pathways...my favorite?"

But don't worry, her blog isn't dry and academic.

Saroj writes about current events, pop culture and politics, but not in an insulting me vs. them way. She doesn't just spout off at the mouth. She researches. She thinks things through. She makes interesting arguments and points.

So in honor of my current love affair with Facebook, here's Saroj's essay on The Emerging Facebook Culture.

Pretty, Pretty Pictures
Not all blogs are as verbose as mine. Some bloggers are visual artists who speak in photos and paintings. In homage to all of them, check out these beautiful miniature portraits of women for a dollhouse.

And now, Back to my sex Life
Now that I've wrapped up my casting-couch horror stories, I haven't figured out what to talk about next.

  • Do you want me to pick up where the casting couch left off, and tell you about the semi-homeless man I dated immediately after?
  • Do you want to know more about who I am today and my decade of near-celibacy?
  • Or go back in time to my college boyfriend, who just happened to be four years younger than my dad?
