Italians Rule At Romantic Graffiti

Reader Cathie-Marie came across this loving scrawl in Perugia, Italy: “It reads ‘Voglio fare con te cio’ ene la primavera con i ciliegi’ which means ‘I want to do with you what the springtime does to the cherry trees.’” Blossom? Sigh.

Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to {encode=”” title=””}. Keep reading »

Random Single Gal Recipe: Roasted Salmon And Brussels Sprouts

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week) I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

Currently, New York City’s temperature feels like a hot, wet towel blanketing every surface. It’s exhausting. Eating a heavy dinner doesn’t help with the fatigue. Lately I’ve been really trying to eat a lot more fish, especially in the evenings when the last thing I want before hitting the sack is a heavy, rich meal. I also have been laying low on the carbs post-work (unless we’re talking booze, which I do not restrict), so for dinner I’ve been making heartier vegetables, like Brussels sprouts, to accompany my protein. Don’t give me that look. Brussels sprouts are delicious when prepared well, extremely affordable, and totally filling, but not in a so-stuffed-you’re-gonna-barf way. After the jump, my recipe for roasted salmon with Brussels sprouts. Keep reading »

5 People Who’ve Lost Their Jobs Over Sexy Pics

New sexy photos have popped up of Arkansas corrections officer Jessie Lunderby (left), who was suspended earlier this month by the Washington Country Sheriff’s Department after being named Playboy‘s Cyber Girl of the Week. Lunderby wasn’t sure whether she’d get her job back, but says she’s gotten plenty of other job offers, “from posing nude in adult magazines to starring in X-rated movies.” But also “more regular jobs like working as a secretary, or in bars.” Is it messed up for me to say that she was probably too attractive to work as a corrections officer in the first place?

In Jessie’s honor, we’ve rounded up a few others fired for their sexy pics. Keep reading »

Quotable: Alexander Skarsgard Finds Nudity “Liberating”

“I’m not a prude. I’m from Sweden, and it’s different there. If it makes sense, I’ll do nudity, and it’s made sense every single time I’m naked on the show. And I love to be naked. It’s kind of liberating.”

Alexander Skarsgard on playing the not-nearly-nude-enough vampire Eric on “True Blood.” After a jaw-droppingly hot nude scene in the season premiere, featuring his tight, bare posterior, Eric/Alexander has been disappointingly clothed in the episodes since. Alan Ball, are you listening? The man doesn’t mind being naked. He likes it. The viewers like it too. More please. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Would You Ever Have A Sex Agreement?

There’s an interesting letter posted over at The Stir from an anonymous reader who confesses that she and her husband made a sex contract when her low libido started to affect their marriage. She writes:

After the birth of our first child, my libido plummeted. Things went from bad to worse in my relationship, and my husband was accusing me of abandoning him. So I made a sex agreement: Twice a week, I’d do it, whether I felt like it or not. It sounds sort of brutal, but I love him and didn’t want to lose him over sex. And it turned out that once I got started, I always felt better. Pretty soon we didn’t have to schedule it anymore, and after we had our second kid, it was easier to get back on the horse.

Maxi Mouse Pad Makes No Bloody Sense

A maxi mouse pad. Why? Described as a “great gift for you and it will spice up your computer,” this mouse pad is shaped like a “sanitary towel” and I suppose would best be accompanied by a bright red mouse. Not to get practical over something so ridiculous, but it seems to me this mouse pad lacks surface area. Like, there’s not enough space for your mouse to move around. Fail.
