Birth Control Makes You Sterile And Other Lies!

At first glance, Pam Stenzel seems like a pretty good sex educator. As Feministing pointed out, she’s got the cool, hip aunt vibe down pat, making her seem approachable to the average kid curious about sex and protection. Too bad she manages to slip in all sort of scary lies into her lectures, like the fact that “no one has ever had more than one partner and not paid”, girls develop anorexia and bulimia “because of an abortion they couldn’t take back”, and that birth control pills and shots make her “ten times more likely to contract a disease than if she were not taken those drugs, sterile, or dead.” We’re frightened for the audience of teens sitting in front of her, in rapt attention.

Crave: A T-Shirt That’s More Than A Little Special

I love to wear t-shirts, but often don’t feel like they’re work appropriate, even though all of five people work in The Frisky‘s offices, so it’s not like going to work everyday is a full-on fashion show. That said, I like to pretend it is, but I would also like to be comfortable. Rose La Biche takes your average cotton jersey t-shirt up a notch, by adding cool nature meets urban touches, like the dope ruffled neck on the Coco design ($69), above. She also makes hoodies! Perfect, considering our office/runway is freezing. More pics of her creations, after the jump. [RoseLaBiche.com] Keep reading »

Poll: How Do You Keep The Babies Away?

Every month, when my period arrives at 9am on the dot on (usually) the first Sunday of the month, I say a little silent thank you to the person who created Ortho-Tricycline Lo. Birth control, in all its many forms, is a wonderful thing. Which do you use? Keep reading »

The Daily (Double-Dose Of) Hotness: Gael Garcia Bernal & Diego Luna

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I can’t wait to go home and make a margarita, try my hand at this bean dip recipe I’ve been curious about, and then sit down to watch Y Tu Mama Tambien. Actually, I probably won’t, because Cinco De Mayo is really about margarita-drinking-togetherness, but to give myself, and you, a taste, here are the film’s stars, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, in all their glory. Incidentally, both of them are about to be daddies. Felicitaciones! Keep reading »

Maybe NO ONE Dies In The Sex And The City Movie!

The New York Times did an interview with Sex And The City Executive Producer, Michael Patrick King, who seemed to pooh-pooh rumors (started by one of the movies’ stars, Cynthia Nixon) that a character dies in the soon-to-be released movie. “Someone’s going to die,” he said, “Like that’s what I’m going to do.” However, King insisted on not having Carrie and Big’s parents involved with the wedding that is at the center of the film, because, “My idea always was that these women were purely creations of New York.The prototype of the series is that these are four grown-ups who make a family of one another.”
