12-Year-Old Girl Seeks Divorce From Her 80-Year-Old Husband

It’s the best possible ending to the most disgusting marriage I’ve ever heard of. A 12-year-old Saudi girl is seeking a divorce from her 80-year-old cousin-turned-husband. That was not a typo. She’s 12; he’s 80. And yes … they are related. She was sold … err … married to him for $30,000 against the wishes of her mother. How is this even legal, you ask? Saudi law does not specify a minimum age for marriage. But the Saudi Human Rights Commission thinks the marriage is wrong and has decided to take a stand and help the little girl obtain a divorce. Thank God! Here’s hoping that the ruling in this case will set a precedent which will make Saudi officials reevaluate the law when it comes to legal marriage age. [Newser] Keep reading »

The Science Of Love

Some of us need proof in order to believe in the existence of life’s elusive mysteries. Call us skeptics if you like, but aren’t we really just being rational human beings? Take this so-called “love” thingy for example. Why are we all wasting our money on chocolates and roses this Valentine’s Day for an intangible, irrational feeling? You can’t see it, or touch it—there is no scientific way to quantify this crazy little thing called love. Or is there? After the jump, some recent scientific findings about love, for those of us who prefer fact over fancy when it comes to our hearts’ desires. See if these findings make you a believer. Keep reading »

Playboy’s Number One Fan Is A Female Librarian

If you met 44-year-old Chicago librarian Peggy Wilkins, you might not guess that she is an avid Playboy reader, let alone the magazine’s biggest fan. Her love affair with Playboy began when she was 13 and stole an issue of the magazine featuring Nancy Drew actress, Pamela Sue Martin, on the cover. Today she has an entire one-bedroom apartment dedicated to housing her massive Playboy collection—she lives downstairswith her BF. In addition to being a reader and collector, she manages databases of others like her, communicates with the Hef himself, and has made it her mission to keep the magazine moving in a positive direction.

Question Of The Day: What Is Feederism?

If you don’t know the answer to this question, don’t feel bad. The other night I was out with one of my good friends when we started talking about her ex. I never quite understood why things didn’t work out with them. “Why did it end?” I asked. “He was a feeder,” she replied. OK, so I had absolutely no clue what she was talking about. Thanks to Dan Savage, I know more than I ever would have cared to know about adult babies, boytaurs, and polyamorous relationships, but feeders—just not a term I’d ever come across. Luckily, my friend filled me in. Keep reading »

Where Have All The Good Collegiate Dudes Gone?

One of the best parts of my college experience at NYU was sampling from the buffet of dudes on campus. It seemed like eligible men were lurking behind every dorm room door, in every lecture hall, and at every bump-and-grind dance party. College life was rife with men, whether they ended up becoming friends or more. There were certainly enough to go around. Apparently, this is not the case for the new generation of college ladies. According to The New York Times, women are totally outnumbering men on campus. The stats say that female enrollment is up to about 57 percent at most major universities (except the Ivys, where men still outnumber women) since the 2000s. So what does that mean for collegiate dating life? It means it’s in crisis. Keep reading »

The Frisky Plays Matchmaker For Reese Witherspoon

It looks like Reese Witherspoon may be ready to play the field again after her split from hottie BF Jake Gyllenhaal. A single and ready-to-mingle Reese was spotted at a Santa Monica Italian restaurant, Locanda Portofino, last Thursday with big-time Hollywood agent Jim Toth. Yeah, he’s easy on the eyes for sure, but I’m thinking he is probably a rebound if anything. Let’s help find Reese someone special this Valentine’s Day season. After the jump, our suggestions for whom Reese should date next. Keep reading »

Girls: Save Your Virginity If You Don’t Have A College Fund

We were aware and appropriately disturbed by the trend of girls auctioning off their virginity to make some extra greenbacks. But after 22-year-old college grad Natalie Dylan sold her unpopped cherry to pay for grad school for a whopping $3.7 million, she changed the virginity game altogether. Her little scheme did not go unnoticed by poor, virginal schoolgirls everywhere. Now a 19-year-old New Zealand virgin, going by the name of “Ungirl,” has followed in Natalie’s footsteps. After receiving 1,200 bids on her purity, she accepted an offer for about $32K, which she says was “way beyond what I dreamed.” Hey, it’s no 3.7 million, but it should cover books. After the jump, some other girls who sold their V-card to pay for school in recent months. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

The Valentine’s Day Survival Guide For Single Chicks

Sometimes it seems like you’re screwed on Valentine’s Day, whether you have a significant other or not. If you’re in a relationship, Hallmark et al. are breathing down your coupled throat, putting on the subliminal pressure to do something meaningful and romantic with your special someone. If you’re single, everyone is expecting you to break down and hide in a corner screaming, “Why me?!” while shaking your fists to the heavens. Can’t we just cross the damn thing off the calendar? No. Not an option.

Now let’s say, hypothetically, for the sake of this discussion, that you are an awesome single chick who begrudgingly acknowledges that V-Day is not going away. How do you live through it? The first thing you do is rejoice in the fact that you don’t have to try to figure out what new Apple gadget to get your boyfriend since you are morally opposed to buying him something called an iPad. Even better, you feel relieved knowing that you don’t have to pretend to be excited when he gets you a box of Whitman’s chocolates from Walgreens and forgets a card. See … isn’t this great? And do you know what is even greater? The fact that you are a strong, independent, happy woman who feels totally content and at peace with being single. Phew. Glad you finally got to that place. So, instead of throwing a pity party for one (that’s so high school), think about this: Valentine’s Day is a day to reflect upon and celebrate the love in your life. The truth is that lots of different people, places, and things fulfill our love quota — not just a significant other. Love is everywhere. (I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s true.) Rather than whine about the love you don’t have, celebrate and expand the love you do have. After the jump, some ideas for surviving Valentine’s Day … single-style. Keep reading »

Old Hollywood Vs. New Hollywood On The Great Weight Debate

The weight issue is often the big, fat elephant in any Hollywood room. It seems like actresses nowadays just keep getting thinner and thinner, yet very few people are talking about it. Well, at a press conference for the new film “Valentine’s Day” the other day, Hollywood “old guard” Shirley MacLaine put “new guard” starlets like Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, and Jennifer Garner on the spot when it was her turn with the mic. “I would like to ask all the women up here what they eat? I’d like to have a rundown,” she said. “Do you diet all the time? You’re looking so fabulous. Is it worth it?” Keep reading »
