We’ve written about “cougars” a lot here at The Frisky, but have we actually met many in real life? Have we met any in real life? No and no. Older women who date younger men exist, of course: Demi Moore, Madonna and Susan Sarandon, as well as all the women who make their living selling cougar-themed dating books. But according to one sociologist, the widespread existence of cougars is a “media construct” that has been blown out of proportion to become a “myth.” Keep reading »
Look, attractive people in expensive clothing! It’s the cast of “The Romantics” modeling the fall collection for J.Crew and there’s a lot more lust-a-licious pics on J.Crew’s site. When you’re done doing that, you simply must watch the trailer about a group of friends with “incestuous dating history.” It looks so good. [J.Crew] Keep reading »
I have never been to Portland, Oregon, but I can imagine how annoying some people who live there might be. Possibly even more annoying than the ones who live in Brooklyn. So I thank the heavens for “Saturday Night Live”‘s Fred Armisen and ex-Sleater-Kinney guitarist Carrie Brownstein, who will enlighten us all when their new sitcom, “Portlandia,” debuts on the IFC channel.

Facepalm. What kind of bull hooey is this? LEGO has these thingies called “minifigures,” which are little LEGO people dressed up in different outfits. There’s a spaceman. A cowboy. A magician. A deep sea diver. A zombie with a shovel and a chicken drumstick. And even a kick-ass robot! But all of those minifigures — and more — apparently have tiny little yellow LEGO penises. (OK, not really. But they are all boy LEGOs.) The only two that are women are a cheerleader and a nurse.
Geez Louise. I’m actually shocked there’s no secretary or waitress. Keep reading »
Perez Hilton is on the shortlist of awful human beings that I don’t want exposed to my future children. So why, oh why would the kids’ channel Nickelodeon invite the self-proclaimed Queen of All Media to guest star on one of its shows? Perez announced that on Friday, August 27th, at 8 p.m., he’ll have a cameo on “Victorious,” the channel’s highest rated new TV show starring teen actress Victoria Justice. Excellent idea! Let’s expose all the tweens to the most sexist, nastiest gossip blogger out there and make him look “cool.” Keep reading »
Can you believe it? The “Jersey Shore” boys are not the celebs responsible for spreading the most viruses. That distinction actually goes to Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts and Jessica Biel.
We are talking about computer viruses, of course. Keep reading »
We’ve heard of pretty painful things happening down there. Childbirth, for one. But nothing compares to an 11-year-old girl in India who was born without a vagina. Doctors did not notice her missing hoo-ha until she began having severe abdominal pain and a sonogram revealed that the girl didn’t have a lower vagina or vulva. Her period blood was collecting inside her each month and she was developing cysts. Ouch! Luckily, this deformity, called
“cryptomenorrhoea,” cryptomenorrhea could be fixed with vaginoplasty surgery and now she is the proud owner of a new vagina. No need to hit up that woman with two vaginas to lend one of hers. [Times of India] [Ed Note: At left is just a stock image photo and not a photo of the girl without a vagina.] Keep reading »
So what do we think of this Daddy’s Little Project Diaper Bag? It is designed to look like a tool belt, with a ton of pockets, and comes with blueprints on how to change a diaper.
Now, a diaper bag is just a bag you put diapers in, so clearly this is all about marketing. Some people — like Amelia, whose guy friend owns one — think the toolkit diaper bag is totally cute. [Cute enough that, made for "men" or not, I would want one for myself. -- Editor] Others — like me — see how it’s a cute product, but also think it’s as annoying/offensive as the pink-ification of products to signify they’re “for women.” I mean, diaper-changing blueprints? Men aren’t stupid. Keep reading »
