I’d heard about Greg from other girls I’d worked with—cocktail waitresses and bartenders—but when I first met him, in 2009, he appeared no different than your average wealthy, white man. In his late 40s with blue eyes and gray hair, he seemed the kind of upper-class suburbanite who might play golf at some country club on the weekend. Which he did.
Congressman Michael Grimm is rejecting reports suggesting he had sex in the bathroom of a Brooklyn wine bar right before the Washington shutdown began two weeks ago.
Mr. Grimm reportedly spent an unusually long time in the bathroom of The Owl’s Head in Bay Ridge–pegged by the New York Post at 17 minutes–with an unidentified woman. But Mr. Grimm, who is single, flat-out denied the accusation that anything inappropriate occurred.
“That’s every girl’s dream!” gushed model Karlie Kloss on the steps of Musée Galliera in Paris at the recent opening of a retrospective on the works of French-Algerian designer Azzedine Alaïa. “I think there is no other designer in the world that can dress a woman’s model in the way that Alaïa can,” she continued with a cat-like smirk. “The way that he uses fabrics and textures and keeps that classic silhouette—incredibly sexy.”
Fed up seeing your ex swooning over another woman, fresh on the heels of your breakup? One Houston woman decided to take matters into her own hands, and instead of just Facebook stalking both of them, posted the photo and address of her ex’s new girlfriend in a Craigslist ad soliciting sex.
Facebook has no patience for boobies–not even the feathered kind. The social media site reportedly took immediate action after the Christmas Island Tourism Board posted an ad for its annual Bird’n'Nature Week that read: “Some gorgeous shots here of some juvenile boobies.”
Of course, ornithologists and casual weekend bird-watchers alike know that “boobies”—besides being, you know, boobies—are also a type of goofy-looking bird found on islands and along coastlines, including on Christmas Island, a small Australian territory in the Indian Ocean.

As the city’s Democratic establishment rallies against ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s comptroller candidacy, it turns out there’s something they can both agree on: Anthony Weiner shouldn’t be mayor.
Mr. Spitzer, who’s tried his very best up until now to avoid commenting on his fellow scandal-scarred pol, was cajoled into weighing into the race on MSNBC’s Hardball this evening.
Sex workers and advocates have scored a small victory with a recent decision by the Brooklyn DA’s office to ban the seizure of condoms as evidence against prostitutes.
Brooklyn’s district attorney, Charles J. Hynes, sent a letter to Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly stating that his office would no longer confiscate condoms as evidence of Read More
Rock Me Like a Hurricane
New York City wasn’t the only thing that got screwed during Hurricane Sandy.
Evidently some New Yorkers who were lucky enough to hunker down with a sweetheart as Sandy ravaged the East Coast will be welcoming their “storm babies” to the world in a few short months.

Swing Low Sweet Sadomasochistics
On Reddit today, an angry letter was posted as a .jpeg regarding “Taste,” a “Swingers/Sex Club Illegally Operating at 45 East 34th Street #3.” The anonymous Samaritan who hung up the sign encouraged others to call 311 in an effort to shut down the “BDSM (bondage/discipline/sadism/masochism) events” that have been going on after dark, every other night of the week.
“During the day,” the letter reads, “various other businesses are run out of Suite 3, including “Basha Gallery,” “Bienvenue Ballroom Dance Center” and something called the “Dragonfly Body Workshop.” (We tried to contact all three “day businesses” at the location, as well as the people behind Taste, but have yet to hear a response.)
We don’t like to assume here at The Observer (it makes an ass out of you and your gimp slave), but it seems awfully naive of the note-writer … sounds like Taste is running a sex operation during the day as well.
But look at how legitimate Taste is! For a sex/swingers club, but still. They’ve got a pretty classy website going on.
