Unfastening that OMG-I-can’t-breathe top button is one way to fit into your skinny jeans. But for the truly trendy, Skinny Jeans Workout classes claim to obliterate the “muffin tops” (also known as the normal, healthy “stomach”) that pop over most women’s zippers when we zip up our J.Crew matchstick jeans.

Most lucky boys get a few hundred bucks and a nice wristwatch for their bar mitzvah presents. But if a Jewish magazine article out of Brandeis University is to be believed, 13-year-old girls are gifting their male Hebrew school classmates with a bar mitzvah blowjob.
In the July 2009 issue of 614 magazine from the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, Shulamit Reinharz writes:
“…a woman in her seventies began sharing her concern with me about the custom in her granddaughter’s prep school; Jewish girls were giving Jewish boys blowjobs as bar mitzvah presents! Presumably because they’ve already got everything else.”
We have only one thing to say about this: oy gevalt. Keep reading »
Sadness: we lost another titan of pop culture this week. John Hughes, who wrote/directed “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club,” and “Pretty In Pink” passed away on Thursday at the age of 59. We haven’t been this bummed since, well, Michael and Farrah passed.
We’re going to affect our most Molly Ringwald-esque pout and cry into our beers tonight. But in the meantime, why don’t you catch up on what you missed on The Frisky this week: Keep reading »
After “Gilmore Girls” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” went off the air, us smart ladies looking for strong female characters flipped through the boob tube channels, alone, confused, and bleating for someone, anyone to come to our rescue. (Sorry, but Liz Lemon on 30 Rock never fails to piss us off for always coming around to see her boss’ point-of-view by the end of the episode.)
Female leads we could identify with—um, no you, Kate Gosselin, are not what anyone would expect to find on a show about the boozy, womanizing, frat boy culture of a 1960′s Madison Ave ad agency. But the nail polished fingerprints of the seven women who comprise “Mad Men”‘s nine-person-strong writing team are all over every episode. [Wall Street Journal] Keep reading »
- Bringing new meaning to the term “firecrotch,” a 26-year-old Greek woman on the island of Crete poured alcohol on a British tourist’s genitals and set them on fire. The woman alleged that the 23-year-old Brit pulled his pants down, “forcefully fondled” her and requested she touch his penis. She allegedly doused his junk in booze and set it on fire with a lighter. Apparently “considerable damage” has been done to his testicles and penis. [NY Daily News] — Wow, there were really less bats**t ways she could have handled that situation. Poor guy (even if he was allegedly sexually assaulting her).
See that older white man over there with the younger Asian woman on his arm? That might not be love—that might be an Asian lady fetish. Author Ying Chu suspects as much, a subject she explores via an uncomfortable trend piece in Marie Claire about rich men like Rupert Murdoch and Woody Allen and the ladies she suspects are their “Asian trophy wives.”
“…[A]fter two or three failed attempts at domestic bliss with women of like background and age, these heavy hitters sought out something different. Something they had likely fetishized.”
Mazel tov to Bai Yun, a mommy panda bear at the San Diego Zoo who gave birth to a four-ounce panda cub on Wednesday morning. The baby’s gender will be unknown until the mama lets zoologists near her cub, who was the size of a stick of butter when born.
Bai Yun has given birth to a cub every two years since 1999. That is rare for endangered panda bears, since the lady bears are only in heat and ready for some sweet lovin’ for about 48 hours a year. With only 1,600 panda bears left on earth to begin with, a newborn baby panda is a big deal. (Especially if you’re obsessed.) Keep reading »
