Ageless Giving

Trying to ease your conscious after eating your weight in food and racking up the debt from Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Feeling a little empty and trying to get into the holiday-giving spirit?

Instead of shopping until you drop, give your Benjamins -- and time -- to charitable organizations, because today is the start of #GivingTuesday. A national effort to create a day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season, #GivingTuesday celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations throughout all 50 states.

This is the second year of the social movement and media campaign, and last year, more than 50 million people worldwide spread the word about #GivingTuesday and the hashtag became a trending topic on social networks, according to the namesake movement.

Hey Sugar Daddies, San Francisco Is Ranked the 6th Worst City for College Grads

graduate.jpg
Just when you thought your college degree was a waste, this new study reveals that sugar daddies are more inclined to spend money on sugar babies with a collegiate education than those who have nothing more than a high school diploma.

In this non-scientific yet very depressing study, 83 percent of fresh-faced grads feel forced to choose an alternative path other than their chosen career after 49 days of unsuccessful job hunting.

And San Francisco (once the nation's Sugar Daddy capital) is not excluded. According to Seekingarrangement.com, a site dedicated to matching sugar daddies with sugar babies, the City by the Bay is the sixth worst place for hopeful college grads.

Video of the Day: Last Chance to Visit the Exploratorium Before It Moves

The Embarcadero has seen a fair bit of controversy in recent years. There were tense negotiations over how much leeway the city would give the America's Cup race, a downright nasty political fight over the 8 Washington project, and now some residents are objecting to development plans for a new Golden State Warriors arena. But the waterfront will be gaining one tenant this year that we're pretty sure everyone will love, and that's the Exploratorium. More »

Top Six Strangest Anal Sex Toys

Did you know August is Anal Sex Month? That's right, while fisting gets a mere day, anal sex gets an entire, glorious month. Stand aside Asthma Awareness Month (or should we say bend over? Sorry!), it's time to take a ride on the Dirty Caboose.

Since it's August 3, we're behind (sorry) in breaking this breaking news to you. But (sorry) we felt we'd be remiss not to tell you about the unofficial San Francisco holiday that celebrates backdoor knocking.

We think about anal sex fairly often. Partially because our Smart phone always tries to autocorrect "texting" with "rectum," but also because this is San Francisco. We believe in fairness. And is there a more equal opportunity orifice than the asshole? We think not. We've also, (unfortunately?) seen some pretty strange anal sex toys in our time, and in the spirit of giving, we'd like to share our top six, all-time WTF toys.

But first, if you want to go deeper (we're not sorry about that one), then check out Good Vibes' handy how-to guide on anal pleasure.

Without further a doo-doo:

Photo of the Day: Breeders Beware

pete_doherty.jpg

In honor of Father's Day yesterday, we dug up this cringe-worthy slide show on the 20 Worst Fathers in History. Among them is Pete Doherty (pictured above). The drug-addled sometime robber and occasional sexer-up of Kate Moss has, contrary to sound evolution, managed to breed twice. One kid he sees occasionally. The other he neither sees nor speaks of regularly. Says Doherty of the kid with whom he has no relationship: "Poor little fucker." From your crack-smoking lips to God's ears, Pete.

Find out who else made the cut in our handy slide show and be grateful you weren't sired by any of these men.

The Hangover 2: A Drag Queen Asks, "Where's the Beef?"

Header_TuckTown.jpg
It is always a little bit exciting and a little bit nerve-wracking to wake up to an e-mail from your editor. "Uh-oh, what have I said now?" is usually what runs through my mind. But luckily for me, this week it was a special assignment!! Oh yes, I'm moving up quick!!

"Oh, you want me to see The Hangover (pause) 2?" Hmm, was this e-mail meant for the sports guy? (Do we have a sports guy?) The beer blogger?"

No, in fact, it was meant for me. You see, it was brought to my attention that there may be some questionable rifts on the gay/trans community in the movie, and that my most colorful of takes on it would be greatly appreciated! Well if that wasn't all I needed to hear to now make me want to see it, and see what the fuss was all about (for free naturally, all in the name of research).

I did see the first Hangover (not in the theater, puhlease), and thought it was funny and entertaining. I didn't really notice anything too un-PC in it, but generally, I like lowbrow, dirty, vulgar comedy, so I was eager to see what the new installment of this brocom was all about. (Okay, my roommate gave me brocom, but I can't help thinking it sounds like a dude convention!)

All things considered, The Hangover 2 is pretty freaking hilarious (for free). It's dirty, it's crass, it's vulgar, and it's funny. (Remember, they're not discussing rocket science here.) There are obvious holes in the "plot" and everything gets wrapped up all nice, cute, and convenient in the end blah blah blah zzzzzzzz! Let's cut to the chase and get to the juicy bits, so to speak.
