Have I mentioned that I have a mild phobia of public restrooms? I believe I have. I’m not scared of them per se, it’s just that I want to be alone when I go to the bathroom. Why should I be forced to share? It’s not cool. Since my single bathroom utopia is hard to find (unless I’m at home), I have to find some way to make this public restroom thing work. Japanese inventors came up with a solution for concealing embarrassing bathroom noises.The Eco-Otome Toilet Sound Blocker is an adorable little gadget that mimics the sound of a flushing toilet for 25 seconds. Just put it on your keychain and push the button until you or the other bathroom goer is done doing da business. A step in the right direction for bathroom-phobes. If only it didn’t cost $20.

Dear Robert Wilkinson (aka drunk guy who sang “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a cop),
Hello. Nice to meet you. Queen is also my favorite band, although I prefer “Fat Bottomed Girls” or “Somebody to Love.” Sometimes when the world feels overwhelming and I don’t know what to do, I sing Queen. There’s something soothing about singing their songs aloud. They help put life in perspective. Speaking of “Somebody to Love” … I think you should drop me a line if you’re sober now. I’m not into drunks. Plus you live in Canada. I don’t know if serenading cops is a regular thing for you — I really hope not. But this happened back in November, so I’m assuming you’ve got your shit together by now. I should tell you, I really liked your message about “brotherhood of men on the planet earth.” I can tell you are a peaceful man at heart and that “physical violence is the least of [your] priorities.” I think we should go do some karaoke together. What say you?
Snoop Dogg’s little girl, Cori B. is following in her father’s footsteps. This is her third single, “Daddy’s Girl”, from her forthcoming album Choc’s World. How did I miss her first two singles? May I just say that I love how appropriate this song is. It’s all puppies and cotton candy. No blunts or booty shaking. Just regular father/daughter shit. Only, Cori’s slightly more spoiled than most of us. My dad never bought me a custom, pink car for my birthday. Did yours? [Buzzfeed]
The most you can hope for from a book is that it will lead your mind astray fully and completely– while riding the subway, relaxing on the beach, lounging on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or escaping ennui. Frisky contributor Chloe Caldwell‘s new collection of essays, Legs Get Led Astray, will take you on a walk through her childhood dreams, her first loves, her sexual experiences, her wanderlust, and the suicide of a lost love. I don’t know about you, but “a scorching hot glitter box of youthful despair and dark delight,” as Cheryl Strayed calls the collection, is exactly the kind of stroll I’m up for. [$7.19, Amazon]
Ladies, if you want to wear granny panties, boy shorts, period undies, sexy thongs, go for it. A woman’s panties are her business, and if we’re being honest, guys don’t notice them anyway. The most you’ll get is a “Hey those are cute, can I take them off now?” And that’s on a good night, when you’re wearing the ones without the holes. However; there are a few types of panties that will catch his attention, but not necessarily in a good way. I’m fairly certain that these eyeball panties aren’t going to get you the kind of reaction you want. Actually, he’ll probably run away screaming. These exist somewhere. And someone wears them — I’m hoping only at Burning Man. Click on through to see more undies you probably shouldn’t wear.
“The first thing that went through my mind is, ‘Oh dear God, how are we going to film this?’ Then, ‘Oh God, my father’s going to watch the show’ … But I love it. I truly believe ["The Good Wife" co-creator Michelle King] is instigating a sexual revolt for network television. I think it’s brave, and I love to try things people haven’t tried before … I’m such a different person now than I was in my twenties … I had all these insecurities – about doing the right thing, about how people would perceive me. It stopped me from having fun, where now I feel comfortable with who I am, no matter who’s in the room … Now this is me, take it or leave it. … That’s the beauty of growing up.”
–Julianna Margulies talks to More about her “Good Wife” oral sex scene with Chris Noth. I can’t tell whether it’s female or male oral that will be reenacted, but either way, it should be interesting. I would be particularly impressed if it were female oral. Here’s to the sexual revolution on network television! [People]
