The 2022 Volkswagen Taos is the German carmaker’s newest compact SUV. Surprisingly, the new Taos is a fuel miser despite having a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. VW unveiled the front-wheel-drive Taos achieves an EPA-estimated 28/36/31 mpg on unleaded fuel, better than its closest rivals like the Audi Q3 and Mazda CX-30. “We developed the Taos for North America with … Continue reading

Nothing says Easter like a solid chocolate vulva. 

Online dating app Bare Dating has launched a “vagina-shaped Easter Egg” available in white, milk and dark chocolate to “promote healthy conversations around sex positivity” this bank holiday weekend.

The egg – which technically resembles a vulva, not a vagina – will be available to buy online later today (Tuesday March 30). 

The brand has produced a series of quote cards they’ll be sharing on social media to spread the message of their vulva-shaped egg. 

While some make subtle sexual puns, others – “consensual sex is cliterally the best” – are slightly off the mark. (Consensual sex is the only way to have sex, not the ‘best’ way).

A survey conducted by the brand alongside the research group Tapestry found just 40% of women think dating apps are safe, compared to 62% of men. Women were more likely than men to describe online dating as “a lot of effort” (63% compared to 55%) and “hard work” (60% compared to 52%). 

No, we’re not sure what that’s got to do with chocolate, either. 

“The vagina has stood as a symbol for centuries – as a symbol of fertility, as a figure intended to ward off evil, and even as a symbol to honour women’s struggles,” the brand says. 

“With these celebrations, we want to bring back these symbols and change the way we think about female bodies, challenging the image of women in society today with a much more female body-positive approach – especially in the dating landscape.” 

Basically, they’ve created the egg to celebrate female empowerment. Either way, it follows an ever-growing list of vulva/vagina-themed products, from the ‘Fudgeina’ Christmas cake to Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous candle

We’ll be sticking to the original ‘mini’ eggs. Thanks all the same.

We’re three and a half years away from electing another president here in the US, but it’s never to early too prepare ourselves for the impending crapshow that is US politics. The good news is, going forward, you won’t have to think so much. The age of data-based politics is coming to a close thanks to the innovations created by the 2016 Donald Trump campaign and the counteracting tactics employed by the Biden team in 2020. Data used to be the most important commodity in politics. When Trump won in 2016, it wasn’t on the strength of his platform (he…

Cameron Diaz has said she “couldn’t imagine” returning to acting now that she is a mother with a young child. 

The Hollywood star is known for films including There’s Something About Mary, Charlie’s Angels and The Holiday, but hasn’t appeared on the big screen since 2014, when she appeared in The Other Woman, Sex Tape and a new film adaptation of Annie.

She and her husband, Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, became parents to a daughter in December 2019, who they called Raddix. 

Cameron has said she would now find it difficult being on set for 14 to 16 hours a day, as it would mean being away from her daughter. 

Cameron Diaz

Appearing on the Quarantined With Bruce radio show, Cameron said: ”[Motherhood and marriage] have been most fulfilling part of my life so far. It’s just like so important. I just feel like it’s, it’s everything that, you know.

“I probably somehow waited for this so that I could do all that other stuff, so I didn’t have any distractions. You know what I mean?”

Asked if she will go back to films, Cameron said: “Look, I’m never gonna say never about anything in life. I just am not that person.

“So will I ever make a movie again? I’m not looking to, but will I? I don’t know. I have no idea. Maybe. Never say never. 

“But I couldn’t imagine being a mom, now where I’m at as a mother and with my child in her first year, to have to be on a movie set that takes, you know, 14 hours, 16 hours away from my child. I just couldn’t.”

She continued: “And I feel for so many mothers who have to go to work, you know? Whatever they’re doing. I feel so much for them and for their children and for all that.

“I just feel so blessed that I get to be here now with my child and, you know, get to be the mother that I get to be. 

“It’s such a blessing, it’s completely privileged and I’m just really, really grateful.”

Cameron with husband Benji Madden

Cameron previously revealed her decision to quit Hollywood brought her “peace” as she had found years of working and being in the public eye “intense”. 

During an appearance on Gwyneth Paltrow’s In Goop Health: The Sessions series, Gwynnie asked what it felt like to “walk away from a movie career of that magnitude”, Cameron said: “A peace. I got a peace in my soul, because I finally was taking care of myself.”

The Shrek star continued: “It’s a strange thing to say, I know a lot of people won’t understand it, I know you understand it, but it’s so intense to work at that level and be that public and put yourself out there.

“There’s a lot of energy coming at you at all times when you’re really visible as an actor and doing press and putting yourself out there.”

Cameron made her film debut as a 21-year-old opposite Jim Carrey in 1994 comedy The Mask. 

She confirmed her retirement from acting in 2018, four years after her last screen role.
