Sleep Tight Without Fearing For Your Life

Are you afraid of being attacked while you’re sleeping? Are you the wife of a gangster or sought-after criminal? If you answered “yes” to either of those questions, the Quantum Sleeper is the bed for you. It’s covered in fireproof, bulletproof plating with a filtered ventilation system, see-through head cover, motion detector, microwave, refrigerator, and…

Beth & Val Discuss Having A Penis For A Day

Beth & Val are two women who host their own Q&A show on YouTube. It is terrifically funny, especially in this clip, where they discuss what they would do if they had a penis for a day — which just happens to be exactly what we would do, i.e. pee, diddle ourselves, and…

Dirty Hair = Clean Air

Hippies are lovable, hairy, and the reason you can get soy milk at most coffee shops. While the world needs all the help it can get, hippies usually need a bath. But now they finally have science on their side. A study, conducted at the University of Missouri, tested 16 hair samples, eight washed and…

100 Unsexiest Men, Plus Five Frisky Additions!

We’ve railed on Maxim quite a bit for naming Sarah Jessica Parker “The Unsexiest Woman In America”, but we haven’t had the wisdom to counter attack with a list of Unsexy Men. No matter, The Phoenix did it for us! As we hoped, the staff picked the 100 unsexiest men with all the right criteria…

Hilary Duff’s Got A Scorpion In Her Pants!

There is a long list of things we would do to get John Cusack to want us, but dropping a scorpion down our pants seems a little extreme — even for a guy who is willing to hold a heavy old school boom box over his head. But a brunette Hilary Duff, who…

That’s “Mister Anti-Choice” To You!

Sigh. Sometimes you just can’t make this junk up. Marvin Richardson, an aspiring Independent Senate candidate, has legally changed his name to “Pro-Life” because, well, he is. Previously, and I am not joking, his middle name was “Pro-Life” but when he ran for the Senate a few years ago, officials refused to put his full…

Swapping Spit

How many germs were spread in the breaking of a world record this weekend, when 100 people participated in a French kissing chain? Many.

Frisky Quote Of The Day: Lauren Conrad

“I don’t think it makes me any less of a feminist because my emotions are affected. I think that I’m very independent and I don’t let guys affect my life. I think in the past I have, and I’ve learned from it. I don’t depend on men. I have my own career.” — Lauren Conrad,…

Where is Chloe Dao Now?

After each season’s finale, you only hear bits and pieces about what former Runway contestants are doing, even past winners. But pretty soon Chloe Dao is going to blow up. In the near future her designs will be sold at stores around the country, not just at Lot8 in Texas, and right now…

We See Chick Flicks: 21

21
Starring Kate Bosworth, Kevin Spacey, Jim Sturgess
Based on the book by Ben Mezrich

The Lowdown: Okay, so I am not sure if 21 totally qualifies as a “chick flick,” but it’s got most of the variables: Kate Bosworth + hot up-and-comer Jim Sturgess + one somewhat tame, but still sexy love scene=good enough…

Slideshow: The Hills Are Alive With The Style Of Whitney Port

The Hills girls are hardly the sharpest knives in the drawer, but we love Whitney for her funny one-liners, crazy faces, and impeccable style.

Johnny Depp & Trojan To Pair Up?

Trojan has asked Johnny Depp to be the spokesman for their brand, hoping that he’ll star in TV commercials promoting magnums (we knew it!) and help them with their sex safe campaign in which the brand plans to send free condoms to Third World countries. DListed suggests that the tagline for the Magnum campaign be,…

Dealbreaker: The Drunk Embarrassment

There are so many things involved in attraction. From clothing to chemistry, a never-ending list of items can be turn-offs. But sometimes differences are a turn-on, from magnets to men, you know what they say: opposites attract. Still, some things are so repellent, they’re dealbreakers.

Oh, the joy of making all your girlfriends swoo…

Dita’s Diamond

Last week, we discussed who gets the ring if an engagement is broken off. But what do you do with the ring if you get to keep it? It’s not like you can wear it on another finger — engagement rings are just a little too distinctive-looking. Well, Dita Von Teese took her diamond from…

First Time For Everything: Having A Baby

It was like out of a dirty dream: I was lying on my back on a stainless steel table completely naked when the door opened. Owen Wilson walked in with a large white sexy toy looking thing, wearing a lab coat. He looked so hot I could barely stand it. As he walked near me…

Crave: Spring Nails

Winter is officially over, meaning you might want to abandon that super dark nail polish, unless it’s your signature look or you’re Ashlee Simpson. We’ve really been liking Rihanna’s fluorescent nails at the Grammys and in her ad for H&M. (I’m totally copying her by wearing neon pink right now.) When we were looking around…

Weight Loss Wears Relationships Thin

I once covered a national fat acceptance convention for the old Jane magazine. As I sat in a room full of men who were the spouses of big beautiful women, they all had one unanimous lament: why doesn’t my wife think she’s sexy, especially when I, her husband, do? These guys would tell their special…

Feature: A Not-So-Innocent E-mail Affair

When I think of virtual reality, I think of those goofy Star Trek-looking visor/headsets that people thought would transport them to their ultimate fantasy world back in the early ’90s. I certainly never thought the term would apply to my life. And yet, for more than a year, I was involved in what can only…

Dogs As Family

Dogs are becoming such a big part of people’s lives that once-popular names for pets (Spot, for example) have been abandoned in favor of more human names, at least when it comes to female dog names. According to research by Veterinary Pet Insurance, the most popular female names are Bella, Molly, and Lucy (full list…
