Sarah Palin Does Stand-Up On “The Tonight Show”

Sarah Palin may not think “Family Guy” is funny, but the former governor of Alaska tried to show off her funny bone with a stand-up set on last night’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Her potshots at the White House were lame, but she made a few good jabs at Alaska. I think we can all say that Palin killed! No, not really. I was just making a hunting joke. [NBC] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: American Apparel’s Best Butt Contest Is Mercifully Over

  • American Apparel’s prestigious “Best Bottom In The World” contest has wrapped up, naming a lady (er, we think that’s lady booty) called “Boom Boom” from Santo Domingo the winner. Too bad the “Best Bottom” contest is over, because The Frisky quite enjoyed prank-calling American Apparel stores about the contest. And, you know, entering it. [Jezebel]
  • Women have fared better than men in the recent economic downturn, according to a study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. One key example? In August 2009, the unemployment rate for men hit 11 percent while hitting only 8.3 percent for women. [Reuters]

Is This A Hoax? Teen Brother Posts Sister’s Hookup List On Facebook

Teen brothers can be awful. Trust me, I had one. But even in his infinite jerkitude, my brother never did anything as slut-shaming or awful as the alleged doings of a little Facebook hoodlum named Chris. According to Nerve.com, teenager Chris got ratted out by his sister, Katie, for a 12-pack of beer he had stashed in his bedroom. To retaliate, he allegedly rooted through her bedroom until he found her “hookup list,” which he posted on Facebook. Chris appears to have posted a looseleaf list of Katie’s conquests — “Adrian finger me,” “Brian only kiss” — and underneath he wrote a nasty little paragraph about it:

Since all I can do and all I’ll ever [do] for the next 2 and a half months involve [sic] sitting on the computer all day, I thought I’d get a little revenge today. Everyone out there might think my sister is such a sweet and innocent girl, but a few days ago I decided to go treasure hunting in her room and found a little something special in her closet. this will make the next 2.5 months bearable.

Ladies and gentlemen…..my sister is a whore.

Ugh. Douche! Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Wanted To Be Dominated

I texted him as soon as I woke up.

“What do you want me to wear today?”

I brushed my teeth and washed my face while I waited for him to text me back.

“White button-down shirt. Tuck it in. Your jeans. Flats. Put your hair in a ponytail. Send me a photo.”

I dressed as instructed, then stood before the wall-length mirror in my apartment’s hallway. Smiling into the mirror, I snapped a photo on my iPhone and sent it to Ben*.

Thirty seconds later, a text message: “Very nice.” Then I knew I could leave for work.

Ben was not abusive. I was not being hurt, nor was I unhappy. We were in a dominant/submissive relationship — or playing at one, anyway — and following his orders got me unbelievably, unbelievably turned on. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Miss America Is Homeless!

  • The cable channel TLC has announced its three-year contract to air the Miss America beauty pageant is complete and there won’t be a renewal. Could it be that beauty pageants are finally no longer relevant? [Variety]
  • Warning, people who live in Bristol, Tennessee: some random person might walk up to you on the street and hand you a pamphlet that says:
    “You may have been given this leaflet because of the way you are dressed. Have you thought about standing before the true and living God to be judged? Scripture tells us that when a man looks on a woman to lust for her he has already committed adultery in his heart. If you are dressed in a way that tempts a men to do this secret (or not so secret) sin, you are a participant in the sin. By the way, some rape victims would not have been raped if they had dressed properly. So can we really say they were innocent victims?”

    If this happens to you, you’ll have a lot in common with 19-year-old Keshia Cantor, who received such a pamphlet from a lady at the drive-thru window at the Hi-Lo Burger where she works. Area religious groups say they have no idea who is responsible for distributing the disturbing pamphlets. [Tricities.com]

“Bridget Jones’ Diary,” The TV Show?

Bridget Jones’ Diary“: book, movie, and now … TV show? That’s the rumor The New York Post is spreading. NBC and the British movie company Working Title are allegedly working on a weekly series of “Bridget Jones Diary,” originally made famous by Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. Hooray! Not only do us Bridget fans have a third movie to look forward to, we might get a boob tube version as well.

Still, as a diehard fan, the possible TV series is a mixed blessing: I’m guessing none of the mega-stars will be involved with a piddling television series and I just can’t imagine anyone else playing Bridget Jones and Daniel Cleaver but Renée and Hugh. YOU JUST DON’T MESS WITH GREATNESS. [NY Post] Keep reading »

5 Moves Women Love In Bed, But Can Be Too Afraid To Ask For

sex photo

I’ve never been afraid to ask for what I want in bed. I guess because during my teenage years I figured out I was/am a perv and I just owned it. But in my decade-plus of hooking up with dudes, I’ve come to see being clear about what I want is a bit rare: Guys have told me other women become self-conscious when asking for something risqué or kinky.

So, I’m going to help you out, boys. Here are some things your lady might want, but she’s too self-conscious to ask for. Don’t pressure anything, of course — but if you offer, you may be pleasantly surprised at how enthusiastically she accepts … Keep reading »
