The Blogosphere Privacy Bill of Rights

I am always a bit wary of writing about my personal life on the blogosphere. That being said, this is The Frisky and we are all about honesty and openness. Last Friday I took my first crack at publicly exploring a private issue. Not to air my dirty laundry to the world again, but I…

Angelina Jolie And Hillary Clinton Work Together To Solve…

Angelina Jolie and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are making a joint appearance on Anderson Cooper 360 tomorrow night. The two women are apparently in cahoots on some undoubtedly serious subject. In an age where celebrities waltz into the UN more often than they walk the red carpet, and politicians twitter more than Ashton Kutcher,…

Take A Nap On The “Girlfriend’s Lap” Pillow

This ain’t your average throw pillow, ladies. Despite what the “Girlfriend’s Lap” pillow looks like, the makers swear there is nothing dirty about this lap pillow. If you are questioning what exactly you are looking at, no worries, you’re not alone. As the name suggests, you are indeed looking at a pillow in the shape…

Obama’s Got His Own Dildo

There are certain places I expect the President of the U.S. to pop up: CNN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, etc. Since President Obama is unusually stylish, it’s no surprise that he and the super glam Michelle regularly grace the cover of non-news magazines. The one place I was not expecting to…

Sperm and Fallopian Tube Jewelry

At first look, these metallic earrings are rather cute. Not my style necessarily, but statement jewelry is in and there is nothing particularly off about them. At second look, I am permanently scarred and already have a call in to my therapist. I should actually be calling my gynecologist to see if these sperm and…

Czech Nurses Score Bigger Boobs

The global financial crises has forced every industry to get a little creative. Rather than go with the stodgy “buy one get one free” approach of many struggling industries, the Czech health care system is wooing its nurses with unusual pizazz. Like most countries around the world, the Czech Republic’s health care system is teetering…

Enema Bag Jewelry

Whoa! Weird alarm bells are screeching in my head. Enema bag jewelry, oh yes, it exists. Luckily for our health, safety and noses, these pins and earrings are only inspired by the stinky enema bags. These, um, unique accessories are made from bronze, sterling silver and copper, so if you wear them and people ru…

Fundies: Underwear For Two

I am a big fan of “alone time” and “space,” which is one of the many reasons I will not be buying a pair of Fundies underwear anytime soon. Some things in life were indeed built for two: See-saws, cats cradle, thumb war, patty cake, etc. Underwear, not so much. Perhaps I am just a…

Last Nights Episode Of “The Fashion Show” Had Nothing To Do With Fashion

“The Fashion Show” is supposedly about “real fashion, for real women.” I never bought the whole “real women” shtick and remained even more unconvinced after last week’s episode when all the contestants balked at the challenge of designing an outfit for a woman who weighed in at over a whopping two lbs. Whatevs, I don’t…

What Do You Do If Your Boyfriend Becomes A Smoker?

My boyfriend just came back from a semester abroad in Paris — and he came back a smoker. I am not a smoker. Never have been, never will be. I couldn’t smoke during high school as I was dancing professionally for an opera company, and by the time I got to college it just didn’t…

Fight Farts With Anti-Flatulence Underwear

I was trying really hard not to mock the daylights out of Under-Ease, the anti-flatulence underwear from the peeps at Under-Tec, but I failed. You gotta admit, the name does not inspire confidence. Still, the eau de fart, or more officially referred to as malodorous flatus, is a literal bummer. If you think about it,…

Chic Taxidermy? Squirrel Feet Earrings

I thought Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter had cornered the market on “random things to decorate your ears with” when she donned those radish earrings. Nope, not even close. Check out these freeze dried squirrel feet earrings and necklace. Taxidermy for your lobes — hot! I am not sure which disturbs me more: the knowledge…

Since “The Fashion Show” Sucks, Play The “Project Runway Game” Instead

I can’t possibly force myself to sit through another episode of “The Fashion Show.” I cannot take another hour of Kelly Rowland contorting her face into bizarre sneers. If I hear Isaac Mizrahi say “bye bye, darling,” one more time, I will snap. Because I value my sanity, or whatever is left of it since…

Contact Lenses Gives You Anime Eyes

Boyfriend into Japanese cartoons? Then he’ll love you in these extra-wide contact lenses from GEO Lens. The lenses sounded innocuous enough at first, but after two seconds of moderate internet investigation, I learned that the lenses primary function are to give your eyes the appearance of an anime character. WTF? The lenses are not only…

Miracle Birth Control Gum

If you thought the blond Orbitz girl cornered the market on bizarre gum marketing, you clearly have not stumbled across the wonderful absurdity that is Miracle Birth Control Gum. I suppose it was only really a matter of time until someone figured out a way to sweeten breath while simultaneously preventing pregnancy. Though the product…

Quick Pic: Robert Pattinson Was A Cutie Even As A Toddler

Robert Pattinson has been adorable his whole life. Have you seen a cuter toddler? Apparently some hotties never have to go through an ugly duckling phase.

What To Wear To The Five Most Random Fashion Weeks Around The World

Move over New York, Paris and Milan, you no longer have the monopoly on Fashion Week. The three fashion capitols of the world are no longer the only cities drawing the well-heeled to their runways. Name a country, chances are it has a fashion week. Of course the big question is: What does one wear…

The Japanese Face Slimmer Leaves Us Speechless, Literally

If you want a thinner face or you are into Darth Vader chic, then I have the product for you. After mulling over the absurdity that is the Japanese Face Slimmer I understand the beauty process as follows: the mask smushes your face to slim it down. First, it melts the fat off your face…
