The Frisky is full of extremely serious questions about bedroom behavior — like this one: have you ever farted in front of someone you’re boinking? We sent Lori out onto the streets to get answers from regular folk — suffice it to say, some of them would be appalled by my complete lack of shame. Keep reading »
Happy “First Day of Summer” Frisky Readers!!! I am so dying to spend the first day of the season at the beach tomorrow. However, if you live in a place where there is no beach, or you are afraid of the sunlight, or you’re stuck in bed with the flu, you should totally take some time this weekend to mosey on over to the Frisky Forums. Here’s what the peeps have been dishing about this week:
Atlgirl wants to know why Lance Armstrong is such a man-whore and has such luck with much younger women. I think that one testicle is very, very powerful.
Elle is wondering whether you’d prefer a traditional princess wedding or something more offbeat, like a destination affair, something small and simple at City Hall, or, like, a ceremony while skydiving. Well I’m wondering about that last one.
Lastly, does the thought of a guy in a bubble bath give you a giant case of the icks?

So, remember that teen pregnancy pact story we wrote about yesterday that was featured in Time? Well, one of our frequent commenters, Go-To-Girl, pointed us to a blog post she wrote where she theorizes that the pact story is actually a bit of a scam. After doing some serious number crunching and some nosing around the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy’s statistic, Go-To-Girl figured out that the percentage of teen pregnancies that the school reflects is actually lower than the lowest state pregnancy rate in the nation (North Dakota) — which she says blows a hole in the “pregnancy outbreak” story hook. Additionally, the pact aspect is also in question according to Go-To-Girl’s research. More info, after the jump… Keep reading »
Only way classier than a mullet. This is one of those times where I go, “Dammit, why wasn’t I born a Vanderbilt? Then I could afford this dress from Rebecca Taylor, even when it ISN’T on sale!” I love everything about it. It makes my teeth sweat. [$216, ShopBop.com] Keep reading »
Love the hot, sticky summer, hate the random mid-day thundershowers. This’ll cheer me up. [$33.99, ModCloth.com] Keep reading »
The citizens of San Francisco are lucky enough to be getting an eyeful of David Beckham’s hot, Armani-clad package right now. His ginormous billboard went up in front of Macy’s in SF’s Union Square this week. This could definitely be a driving hazard. Keep reading »
I can’t remember the last time I picked up a lady mag and saw an African-American woman on the cover that wasn’t Halle Berry. The beauty and hair advice doled out in these magazines is targeted at white women unless otherwise noted and the major runway shows are pitifully powder white (Eastern-European is very in). It’s sucky, to say the least. Vogue Italia decided to do something about it, declaring their July issue “The Black Issue” — all of the featured models would be Black and all the featured content would address Black women. This is all fine and dandy on a purely surface level I suppose, except that by making this issue “special” they’ve defined all other, white-centric issues as the usual and the norm. Rather than having more women of color in every issue, targeting a single issue at one ethnic group doesn’t really do anything to increase diversity, now does it? That’s weak.
