Dov Charney Describes His Sexual Harassment Charges Thusly: “I Like To Fool Around With Girls”

"It’s getting strange, you know? Things are strange. Like, at our company, we’re all about gay rights–everyone’s sexuality is human. But, there’s still the conservatives, the scared people, just looking for a little enemy, looking for new sexual things to clamp down on. But we don’t want to fall into that trap–only talking about sex–because…

The BBC’s Women Of The Year Include A Princess And A Panda, But No CEOs

It’s almost 2012, but you wouldn’t know it from the BBC’s bafflingly retro new list of 12 women who it calls the “Faces of the Year.” Who made the cut? Christine LaGarde? Jill Abramson? Perhaps Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee, and Tawakkol Karman, the trio of women who won the Nobel Peace Prize? None of the above. Instead, the news service chose a bizarre…

Girl Talk: I Have A Part-Time Boyfriend

When I tell people, “I live with my boyfriend three days a week,” I often get two reactions.  1. “That must be-um– challenging.”  2. “That sounds ideal!”   The first reaction often comes from a place of concern. How can you have a meaningful long term relationship when you only see each other three day…

Strike A Pose, There’s Nothing To It

The documentary about New York's drag scene, "Paris is Burning," is one of my favorite movies of all time, so it figures that I'm really excited to check out the new book, Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York.

Peta Puts Its Paws Up At Kim Kardashian And Janet Jackson

I'm not 100 percent crazy about PETA -- a lot of their advertising and marketing employs sexist tactics in order to promote their pro-animal message. That said, their latest move -- to single out Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson for their pro-fur lifestyles -- might not be a bad move. The animal rights organization awarded…

Morning Quickies: Sinead O’Connor Says 16-Day Marriage Was Like “A Coffin”

Sinead O'Connor's 16-day marriage tanked in part because of drugs. The happy couple spent their wedding night on a hunt for weed, ended up someplace "quite dangerous" in Las Vegas, and were handed "a load of crack." (Also, uh, doing this.) Sinead said she had second thoughts about the nuptials — and, uh, the drug…

Emma Watson’s Hair Was The Most Googled This Year

I don't really get it -- because it's generally understood that most guys don't like short hair. And if guys don't like short hair then girls aren't going to get out of their way to get their hair cut short. However, according to Google stats, Emma Watson's cute little pixy haircut (sorry, I'm biased!) wa…

9 Fleshlights That Frighten Us (NSFW)

When I started writing for The Frisky, I had no idea what a Fleshlight even was, which makes sense because I don't have a penis. I thought they were flashlights used to light the way during oral sex. Oh, the things you learn! Imagine my surprise when I discovered that a Fleshlight is actually a…

The 10 Proudest Sluts Of 2011

Slut. It's an ugly word, isn't it? Especially when it's flung at you by some jerk who thinks the worst way he can insult a woman is by impugning her reputation. (Newsflash: it isn't.) But lots of unapologetically sexual ladies don't let "slut" be a pejorative. Instead, they say, "Judgment be damned!" and wave their…
