10 Things Found Only in Bachelor Pads

Categories: Fun, Top Ten List

Empty beer cans aren't the only telltale sign of an all-male household, but they're a good start.

It shouldn't shock anyone that men and women might prefer to live in significantly different situations, but the truth is a lot of guys will clean up their lives (or at least their homes) when they get into at least a semi-serious relationship. You might think your boyfriend or husband leaves your home a dirty mess now, but just ask him about his place before he got together with you. Not every guy lives in a pigsty, but there are some things that can be found in most bachelor pads and generally not any other adult's home.

Here are 10 things that you probably won't see anywhere a woman's living.

Categories: Fun, Top Lists

In case you couldn't tell, we love Instagram. Whether it's athletes and photographers to follow, or learning about how to up our photography game, we can't get enough of this app. However, there is a large part of Instagram that we can ignore no longer: animals.

Should I Take This Selfie? A Guide for Grownups

Categories: Fun

It's a question for the ages.

To selfie or not to selfie? That is the question.

On the one hand, who doesn't love to indulge their narcissistic side every once in a while? But on the other hand, selfies are terrible, embarrassing, and sometimes dangerous byproducts of a self-indulgent, technology-obsessed culture. Teens have it easy. We expect selfies from them. Adults? Not so much. Yet, we, legal adults, are guilty of participating in these photographic faux pas, too.

There are few occasions when adult selfies are acceptable, perhaps even encouraged, but much more frequent are the times when they are unacceptable. It can be tricky to tell, phone in hand and reverse camera pointed at your face, if this moment is one of those acceptable times to selfie. So we have devised a guide to help you. Read carefully, good luck, and selfie if you dare.

Midnite Movie Mamacita took to the stage at the 2010 competition.
Ordinarily, faking it during sex is pretty much considered to be bad form and also might lead to hurt feelings, bruised egos, and maybe even a breakup.

However, faking it during the Air Sex World Championships, especially in over-the-top fashion, is not only acceptable, but is downright expected, and might lead to excited cheers, an afterglow of triumph, and maybe even nationwide fame.

As you can guess by its name, the raunchy and ridiculous touring event -- which takes place in cities across the U.S., including a stop at Phoenix's FilmBar next month -- encourages its hump-happy participants to bust out with over-exaggerated and ludicrously humorous simulations of sexual activity with invisible partners that's set to music.

¬°Muy caliente!

Whenever Cinco de Mayo rolls around each year, you're guaranteed to see any combination of the following: mass consumption of cerveza and tequila, red and green plastic beads, cheesy fake mustaches, and sombreros. Lots of sombreros.

It seemed like the Spanish-born wide-brimmed toppers were being worn at practically every party in the Valley, especially at Tempe and Scottsdale drinking hotspots like Dos Gringos, Bottled Blonde, Fat Tuesday, Moonshine Whiskey Bar, and Gringo Star.
