The Daily Squeeze: Diabetes And Pregnancy, Having What You Want, And Teens And Sex Ed

More women are entering their reproductive years with diabetes, and pre-existing diabetes is more likely to lead to miscarriages, stillbirths, and babies with birth defects due to elevated blood sugar during the first trimester. Amelia, this means you need to lay off the leftover Peeps. [Ivanhoe]
Research published in Psychological Science suggests that people who…

Experience Jimi Hendrix In All His Glory

Does Jimi Hendrix have a sex tape? Of all the dead rock stars we want to see naked, he’s close to the top, so we squealed a little when we read this story. A porn distributor sold the film to Vivid after the footage was found by a collector who bought a box of rock…

The Colbert Report Weighs In On The Miley Cyrus “Scandal”

Maybe the real lesson learned from all of this isn’t that Miley Cyrus is a lil’ trampy for 15, or that her parents were remiss, or that Disney needs to chill the hell out. Maybe it’s that Annie Leibovitz is played out. [Comedy Central: The Colbert Report]…

Lip Gloss And The Sun Are Mortal Enemies

If you think that glossy lips and sun-kissed skin make for a good combination, you have another thing coming — and that thing is called cancer. Most shiny lip balms and glosses don’t offer protection and can even increase light penetration through the lip surface. Wear a lip sun block with an SPF of 30…

Digg The Prom

Aww, look at the adorable way in which modern technology brings people together. This kid asked his date to prom by posting the above image on the internet and then digged it in hopes that his crush would come across it. So much more complicated than just asking, but hey, nerds like a challenge. Click…

Pregnant? Eat Chocolate

Did you know chocolate’s good for you? No? You haven’t heard that in a gazillion studies? Well, it turns out chocolate, especially the dark stuff (never anything good happening for us milk chocolate lovers), helps ward off a serious pregnancy complication known as preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is when blood pressure spikes while excess protein is released…

Hoo-Ha, That Was Funny!

Sex and sketch comedy go together like penis and vagina. And the good people at Planned Parenthood of Portland, Oregon get both apparently. While the health videos we watched in high school were dull, outdated, and often gross, their take on taking care of down there features cool hotties and is laugh out loud awesome.

Reach Out And Touch Someone

Phone sex is a fun way to keep in touch while a loved one is out of the country. But usually when we complain about being raped by long distance charges, we’re only talking about the bill. A family in Tunisia, however, is suing a man they claim took their daughter’s virginity over the phone.

Barbie Is Ruining The World, Some Say

In a letter to Iran’s vice president, Prosecutor General Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi writes that importing Western toys into the country is a “danger” that needs to be stopped. In Iran, importing Western toys is discouraged but not illegal, and many toys are smuggled into the country. Najafabadi says their increased visibility is worrisome: “The…

Supergirl Gets Divorce

Kids grow up so fast these days. By 3rd grade, I had definitely played pretend bride, but a girl in Yemen was forced to do it for reals. At the bold age of eight, her parents married her off to a man over four times her age. It’s all fun and games until someone get…

What’s The Worst Pickup Technique A Guy’s Attempted To Use On You?

I was at a bar this weekend, hanging out with some friends, when a guy came over to me. He began by telling me he was thinking about opening a bar, then preceded to ask me tons of questions, like what I thought made a successful place and whether having Guitar Hero would be a…

Hot Topic: Miley Cyrus In Vanity Fair

Alright guys, what do you think of this whole Miley Cyrus/Vanity Fair/Annie Leibovitz debacle? To refresh: Leibovitz shot the pop star for the magazine draped only in a sheet, very little makeup, and tossled hair. No matter which way you cut it, the photo certainly is provocative. It’s also beautiful, but really, wouldn’t expect anything…

The Daily Hotness: James McAvoy

I finally saw Atonement this weekend. I know, I’m really behind. It is really quite phenomenal how attractive James McAvoy is in that movie. The whole scene with him and Keira Knightly in the library was like a sexy version of Clue. You know — Mr. McAvoy and Ms. Knightly, in the library, with a…

Amy Poehler To Be A Baby Mama!

Baby Mama star Amy Poehler and her husband Will Arnett are expecting their first child. The only sucky thing about this is that Amy will probably have to take off SNL for maternity leave and the show won’t be as funny. Mazel Tov nonetheless! [Us Weekly]…

Yesterday was Bust’s Spring Fling Craftacular and The Frisky was there to help. We had a blast giving out free panties, tote bags, and pins, and want to thank Bust for having us. We documented a bit of the fierceness. Enjoy!

Your Nose Was A Sexual Organ

Millions of years ago, humans could detect pheromones. We could “smell” each others’ genetic material through particular detectors that have since gone dormant now that we can see in color. It seems that this organ, called the vomeronasal organ, is no longer connected to the brain (does this mean those fragrances with pheromones are pointless?).

Poll: Would You Date A Guy Who Had A Kid?

The “Modern Love” column in this Sunday’s New York Times was about a woman who dates a musician who has a kid with a woman he briefly dated. The guy turns out to be a bit of a child himsef, but the whole piece got me thinking about whether I would be down for dating…

Crave: A Slice Of Heaven On Your Hand

Yesterday at the Bust Spring Fling Craftacular, I went to Sprout Jewelry’s booth four times to ogle this ring. They only had one for sale and the finger it fit is the one I wear my dang engagement ring on. For some reason, my ring finger on my right hand is fatter. Anyway, I had…
