Georgetown has never been known for its eroticism. But in the brick courtyard of Canal Square—an upscale piece of real estate nestled between M Street NW and the C&O Canal—gallery owner David Quammen, 70, has carved out a space for the risqué. Since 2005, Quammen’s MOCA DC has exposed Georgetown passersby to paintings of childbirth, [...]

Today, Tucker Carlson launched The Daily Caller, a Web site that has been hailed as the conservative answer to the Huffington Post. Given my peculiar obsessions with Arianna Huffington's left-leaning political tabloid, I had but one question for Carlson: Will there be nipples?
This Spanish PSA, which warns of the dangers of "sexting," follows a similar trajectory to domestic anti-sexting initiatives: There's the ill-advised nudity, the mass tween sext, and the shame, oh, the shame. One difference: The Spanish version drops a lot of nipple.
The human nipple is a strange beast. Depending on the context, this "small projection of skin containing the outlets for 15-20 lactiferous ducts arranged cylindrically around the tip" has been marketed as alternately sexy, obscene, artistic, disgusting, and even sexier.

Huffington Post's Vice President for Communications, Mario Ruiz, responded to my inquiry by copy-pasting Kurtz' column into an [...]
On Tuesday, I wrote a post criticizing the Huffington Post for espousing progressivism in its political coverage while exploiting women in its entertainment pages.
I'm still waiting to hear back from HuffPo on how ritual public outings of women whose clothing accidentally slips a couple centimeters keys into their liberal political identity—though it looks like somebody [...]
It's no secret that The Huffington Post fancies itself a left-leaning Web rag. Wikipedia describes Arianna Huffington's aggregatorial monster as "an American liberal news website." Conservapedia's definition, however, might be more helpful: "The site is an extreme mouthpiece for liberals," it reads. "The Huffington Post calls itself an internet newspaper of blogs, news and video [...]
Wanda Sykes, personal hero of mine, headlined the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday. We can get Wanda in the White House, but when will we get Pootie Tang into a Washington, D.C. Blockbuster store? I'm still waiting.
"There was never a nipple portrait of Lincoln, I'm sorry."
"I tell my kids: If two cars pull up, [...]
