If there is one thing we like more than an actor with a spanking fetish, it’s one with a cross-dressing and a spanking fetish. Do you have any idea whom this blind item might be referring to?
“This actor who was an Academy Award nominee/winner has been married for quite some time. While on the set of a recent movie he started having an affair with this actress who was a Golden Globe nominee/winner. Nothing really that juicy about the affair except for the fact the couple never had sex. Nope. Turns out our actor just likes to have our actress spank him while he wears some of her clothes.”
The Frisky does not — I repeat, does not — know the answer to this blind item, so don’t ask us. We’re just soliciting your gossipy opinions in the comments! [Crazy Days And Nights] Keep reading »
When did conservative female political candidates who make bombastic statements become so chic? First there was Sarah Palin, then Michele Bachmann, and now Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell is the toast of Delaware’s Senate race. For the love of vaginas, Victoria Woodhull, Shirley Chisholm and Geraldine Ferraro did not smash through the glass ceiling so that their successors could clog up the 24/7 news cycle with their anti-sex, anti-woman views.
Frankly, Christine O’Donnell’s declaration on the MTV series “Sex In the ’90s” that masturbation is a sin is all the crazy I need to know to make my assessment about her. But in case you and your lustful heart want to give O’Donnell a chance, here are five things to know about her. And you know you want to know how Mel Gibson is involved. Keep reading »
When I was growing up I had a friend who was as aloof as she was glamorous. She had a way of holding the cutest and most charming boys in her thrall and all the girls wanted her to like them. Whenever she had problems with her romances, her schoolwork, her friends or her family, she was very mysterious about it. Her glass facade never shattered in public and very seldom would she even admit to having problems at all. Some days, random Tuesdays or Thursdays, she wouldn’t be in school, even though she hadn’t looked sick the day before. She would call them her “mental health days.”
She seemed very melodramatic to me, as if this were all just part of her act. But it was also exciting. My mother is a lot like Betty Draper and she would say to me when I was growing up that if I was not bleeding, I was fine. That kind of mothering doesn’t exactly teach someone self-care: if I didn’t want to go to school, I would lock myself in my bedroom and shriek at my mother through the door that I wanted to be left alone. A “mental health day,” on the other hand, sounded so grown-up, like she was taking a “personal day” at the office and we weren’t just a couple of 10th graders. I could imagine my friend calm and collected, attending to her own needs like a cat licking his paws. Maybe it was melodramatic, but it still sounded nice. Keep reading »
Is it OK if I live vicariously through Tavi for a while? The 14-year-old style blogger brunched with Kathleen Hanna of Le Tigre and Bikini Kill while in New York for Fashion Week and not only did Kathleen hush up Tavi’s inside-baseball fashion jibber jabber with “Who cares? People are dying!” but she gifted the style rookie with some old Riot Grrrl ‘zines and a kickass sweater. How psyched am I that Tavi wore a sweater with the “f word” to high school and lived to tell about it? [The Style Rookie] Keep reading »
“I want to enjoy the work I do. I’m looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don’t just see me as a piece of ass. Which I have experienced as well. … I’ve nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don’t want that in my life. “
—Actress Gemma Arterton, 24, on being disrespected on film sets. Hmm, which films could this Bond girl be talking about? “Quantum of Solace”? “Prince of Persia”? Or maybe it was “Tess of the d’Ubervilles”!
After the jump, more from Gemma on the roles for women in Hollywood. Keep reading »
Remember when men were men and women were cup holders? Chevy does and they are selling posters of their 1959 Impala to celebrate the glory days when women knew their place was in the shotgun seat. Sexist ads don’t endear the rest of the country to feel bad for your financial woes, auto industry. [ChevyMall.com via AutoGuide.com] Keep reading »
What happens when someone grabs their video recorder and hits an American town to ask random people the definition of the word “sexism“? More than half of the people asked cannot define what it means and one in three say women deserve to be treated differently because of their gender. The lack of understanding about sexism and the inability to recognize it does not surprise me at all. Keep reading »
Story time! The summer after my sophomore year of college I dated a guy whom I had more of a sexual connection with than an emotional one. He was one of the first guys I met who was genuinely into S&M and we enjoyed exploring each other’s sexuality in exciting and painful new ways. But I didn’t want to have intercourse with him, so he decided to dump me over that. Great guy, I know. This piece of work took me out onto Long Island Sound in his parents’ motor boat under the pretense of having a nice sail together and ended the relationship out at sea. Then he dropped me off on a pier and sailed back to shore. Cuh-ra-zy. Keep reading »
