More helpfulness from the NY Times


The Paper of Record helpfully explains sexting: “the primary reason teenagers sext is to look cool and sexy to someone they find attractive.”

Not that I just read the Times for the dirty bits, but on Friday it reviewed Kate Winslet’s pubic hair in HBO’s Mildred Pierce: “Both Ms. Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Veda as a teenager, have full-frontal nude scenes. They are ‘tasteful,’ as the saying goes, but seem designed less to advance the story than to prove, once again, the filmmakers’ dedication to historical accuracy — in even the more remote areas of feminine grooming.” No waxing, is I believe the gist of what is being conveyed here. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
