You Can Now Vacation On A Women’s-Only Island
We bet there are plenty of women out there who sometimes wish they could get away from men for a little while, and there’s now an island where you an do just that.
Last month something called SuperShe Island opened off the coast of Finland in the Baltic Sea, and as the name suggests it is for women only. The retreat consists of four renovated cabins, that can accommodate about 10 women, along with spa amenities and Finnish saunas.
And the island is more than just about getting away from men. Guests can enjoy yoga, meditation, fitness classes and more. There are talks from motivational speakers, cooking and nutrition classes, and farm-to-table dining, with a Paleo-friendly menu. But, in addition to lack of men, there is also no alcohol allowed on the island.
- If this sounds great to you, know that a visit isn’t cheap and the booking process is selective. A week-long stay will set you back about $4,680, and guests have to actually apply for a spot, and explain why they want to visit. “The stories that impress me are authentic, come from the heart,” island owner Kristina Roth says. “They’re honest. They’re putting their cards on the table.”

Couple Seeks Videographer for Wedding-Night Sex Tape
A British couple has made headlines by advertising for a professional videographer to film their wedding night sex tape.
The man and woman — who have wisely opted to remain anonymous — are due to marry in September and obviously haven’t been wedding planning properly as they apparently still have money to burn on extraneous things like sex tape makers.
In an advertisement published on a UK odd jobs site, the bride-to-be offered nearly $3,700 to a film professional willing to work 1 a.m. to 3 a.m. on her wedding night, capturing some X-rated footage.
“Both myself and my fiancé believe that your wedding day shouldn’t just be limited to a day and actually your wedding night is just as important,” the ad reads.
“Since we got engaged we’ve both been in agreement that we want a videographer to film our wedding night, but unfortunately we haven’t been able to find anyone willing, or who we’ve felt comfortable enough around.”
“We originally asked our day videographer to do it, but he said he didn’t feel comfortable doing it and that it wasn’t something he’d done before. Obviously, we know that this is a bit of a weird request, but we just really don’t want to forget any moments from our day, or night, which is why we want everything on tape.”
The post goes on to detail the privacy requirements to ensure the video is for the happy couple’s eyes only, as well as listing some of the key shots that will need to be captured.
Why People Are Rubbing Toothpaste On Their Boobs
There are some wacky trends out there that make us raise an eyebrow – sometimes both. From eating Tide pods to covering our teeth in charcoal, there are some trends out there that make us wonder. Now, beauty influencers are encouraging women to do something else a little wacky: smother your boobs in toothpaste.
There are videos out there with millions of views letting users know that rubbing toothpaste on your boobs and nipples will help your boobs grow and keep them from getting saggy. Sounds like a simple fix, right? Well before you go and invest in a ton of toothpaste, just keep this one thing in mind – it totally doesn’t, so get over yourself.
Who would think that rubbing toothpaste on your boobs would actually make them bigger or keep them from sagging? Dumb.
Most Workers Agree – Meetings Are A Waste Of Time
These days a lot of people spend a good portion of their work day in meetings. And while they can be an essential part of the job, more and more people think they are simply a waste of time.
A new survey by AccounTemps finds that workers spend about 21% of their work hours in meetings, and feel that a quarter of that time is simply wasted. Employees’ biggest issues with meetings is that they usually start late (66%), with 63% finding them unnecessary, because the stuff discussed could be handled over email instead. Other complaints about meetings include:
- Too much or not enough time allotted (57%)
- Attendees distracted (using phone, checking email, doodling, etc.) (57%)
- Attendees interrupt each other (55%)
- Not sticking to an agenda when one is provided (49%)
- Attendees unprepared (47%)
And if you want folks to be engaged in your meeting, you shouldn’t allow for remote ones. The survey finds that 37% of workers admit to being less engaged during remote meetings.
