Breakfast Eaters May Be Latecomers To Sex

Did you eat strawberry Pop Tarts every day before driving off to high school? Were you the last of your friends to start having sex? According to a study of 1,500 people in Japan, teenagers who skip breakfast are more likely to lose their virginity at a younger age. The average cherry-popping of a cereal-eater…

Poll: Will You Change Your Name When You Get Married?

When I was a lot, lot younger, I used to think I would make my husband take my name; My dad would say, “Good luck finding a guy who’s willing to give up his last name!” I don’t feel that way anymore, but I don’t think there’s a good solution. The best I’ve heard i…

Crave: Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15

Benefit’s versatile Benetint stain has long been one of our favorite beauty products, mainly because it makes our cheeks look nice and rosy, like we just spent a couple hours sledding in Vermont. It’s supposed to work wonders on lips, too, but when we tried it once, the brush tickled us too much. That’s why…

PETA Video Game Hunts Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin has gotten a ton of bad press: her teen daughter’s pregnancy, her pricey wardrobe (especially the hooker boots), her future grandma-in-law — who was just arrested on six felony drug charges that indicate she was both manufacturing and distributing an illegal substance — her oil drilling payouts, and that little Hustler porno “Nailin’

8 Ways President Obama Will Improve Your Sex Life

We got a glimpse last week of President-elect Barack Obama out of his suit and tie — totally shirtless. And it was a wonderful sight. Women everywhere, especially in The Frisky’s office, gawked at his chiseled pecs and toned body. And men took notice too, thinking, “If Obama has the time to workout, then I…

The Sanchezes: Capitol Sisters

Being pregnant and unmarried seems like a cardinal sin for a representative in Congress, where traditional family values are still debated. But that’s not the first gossipy headline about Rep. Linda T. Sanchez. She and her sister, Rep. Loretta Sanchez, are known for their bold personalities, stiletto heels and fashions that stand out in the…

Prescription Eyelash Enhancer Coming Soon

If thickening and lengthening mascaras just aren’t enough to make your lashes look all fluttery, a savior is on its way. A new drug called Latisse was recently approved and will soon be available with a prescription. The cream supposedly boosts lash length and thickness by encouraging hair follicles’ regrowth, but any part of the…

How To NOT Date A Criminal

Women who fall in love with and sometimes marry psychotic killers — like Richard Ramirez (the Night Stalker) or Ted Bundy — have always fascinated me. I mean, why? Sure, people do tend to have types, but “big-schnozzed manorexic” is a far cry from “slitter of throats and raper of ladies.” However, I have to…

Dealbreaker: The Overly Dirty Talker

Dirty talk is an acquired taste. Like oysters, or caviar. Sure, maybe at first bite, dirty talk can seem a little awkward, even unsavory to some. But like a kalamata olive, it grows on you. And soon enough you’re ordering Greek salads like it’s your job and dirty talking like you never owned a copy…
