That’s a relief.

Mississippi voters failed to pass an anti-abortion “fetal personhood” amendment, which would have defined the beginning of life at conception and therefore criminalized all abortions — including those resulting from rape or incest. Initiative 26, as the ballot measure was known as, also would have criminalized IVF treatments and some forms of birth control because they both involve fertilized eggs. If it had passed, MS would have had the strictest restrictions against abortion in the country. Keep reading »

We always knew George Clooney  was a silver fox sex god. What we didn’t know was that it dated all the way back to grade school. The hunky star tells the latest issue of Rolling Stone that he lost his virginity at 16, which he called “young, very young, too young.” But the most WTF big reveal from the Cloon are details about his first orgasm. “I believe it was while climbing a rope when I was six or seven years old,” he told RS. “I mean, nothing came out, but all the other elements were there. I remember getting to the top of the rope, hanging off the rope, and going, ‘Oh, my God, this feels great!’” I was going to make a joke like “Oh, to be that rope!” … then I remembered he was only in the first grade when this happened.

  • The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority banned Marc Jacobs’ print ad starring Dakota Fanning holding a perfume bottle between her legs because the image of the 17-year-old actress is “sexually provocative.” The ASA said the Oh, Lola ad “could be seen to sexualize a child” and therefore is “irresponsible” and “likely to cause serious offense.” [Guardian UK]

All the Frisky's recipes and tips for Bitchin' in the Kitchen. Read More »

Food and sex, the two greatest sensual pleasures in life. And the way we speak of them is so similar: how many times have you referred to chocolate mousse as “orgasmic”? I can’t be the only one you feels this way about things I put in my mouth. (Some things, you pervert.) So I decided to put together a fun little game for Frisky readers: here are 10 celebs talking about two of life’s pleasures — cooking or nookie — but with key words omitted from each quote. It’s up to you, dear reader, to figure out what they’re talking about.

And yes, on the slide about Snooki, I do make a joke about Italian sausages. Enjoy!

  • Mississippi is voting on a “fetal personhood” amendment today, which would criminalize all abortions by declaring a fertilized egg as a “person.” Yesterday, while speaking to a crowd, a woman named Cristen Hemmis who was kidnapped, raped and shot twice asked Lt. Governor Phil Bryant, who supports the amendment, to have “sympathy” for women like her. Phil Bryant’s reply? He told her the personhood amendment was a “battle of good and evil of Biblical proporitions” and that if abortion remains legal, “Satan wins.” Yes, he said this to a woman who was KIDNAPPED, RAPED, and SHOT. I give up. [Think Progress, NEMS360.com] Keep reading »
