Princeton Mom Calls Rape A “Learning Experience,” Says Victims Should Just Ask Their Rapists To Leave

Princeton Mom Calls Rape A "Learning Experience," Says Victims Should Just Ask Their Rapists To Leave
Warning: This Will Make You Want To Throw Things

I’m generally in a happy mood on most Fridays, but I am on the verge of throwing my laptop at the wall this morning after watching Princeton Mom‘s latest bullshit-spewing interview about her thoughts on acquaintance rape.

Susan Patton, dubbed Princeton Mom for her degree from the esteemed University and, quite frankly, weird obsession with it, has become infamous for her “alternative” views on gender and relationship issues, including her idea that date rape isn’t real. So when CNN did a segment on campus rape yesterday, they, for some reason unbeknownst to every human in America, chose to bring on Princeton Mom as their guest. The interview was held for 10 minutes and 32 seconds, and it was 10 minutes and 32 seconds of some of the most ignorant, generalized statements I’ve ever heard in my life. Amidst her claims that she is a “sympathetic ear,” Patton managed to have this mind-numbing conversation with CNN host Carol Costello about rape on campus. Keep reading »

Real Couples Play "Sexy Charades," Try To Act Out Sex Positions Based On Their Hilarious Names
This One's Called 'Intermediate Swimming Lesson'

I think I just found a new game that I want to bring to every party I will attend for the rest of my life. The Cut has come up with “Sexy Charades,” a game in which real couples are asked to act out a sex position based on its name, and its name only. As I’m sure you know, some positions these days are given…um, unique names. Take, for example, One Sausage Wrapped To Go, or The Intermediate Swimming Lesson. The Cut producers used the “Position Of The Day” card deck by the editors of Nerve.com as their guide, and let the games begin! So how did their test couples do getting into position? Watch the video above to find out! [Happy Place]

Oh Come On: Best Buy Tweets About “Serial,” Instantly Gets Crap For It

Oh Come On: Best Buy Tweets About "Serial," Instantly Gets Crap For It

It wasn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last, that a brand posts something on social media and instantly regrets it.

For those of you who’ve been listening to the popular “Serial” podcast, about the real-life murder of Hae Min Lee in 1999, you’re aware that there’s an ongoing deliberation about where the crime was committed. One report claims the high school student was strangled in the Best Buy parking lot, before her accused killer used a pay phone at the entrance of the store to make his “she’s dead, come and get me” call to a friend.

Steve Carell & Jimmy Fallon’s Barbershop Quartet Sing “Sexual Healing” And Totally Kill It

Steve Carell & Jimmy Fallon's Barbershop Quartet Sing "Sexual Healing" And Kill It
"Baby, I'm Hot Just Like An Oven, I Need Some Lovin'"

Steve Carell guest starred on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” last night, and joined the host’s famous Babershop Quartet “The Ragtime Gals” in singing one of the world’s sexiest songs. The “40-Year-Old Virgin” actor took lead vocals on “Sexual Healing,” while Jimmy and the gals belted out back-up. If you’re not hypnotized by all of the stripes, you’ll see that they actually did a pretty bang up job (do people still say that?)

Marvin Gaye would be so proud.

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To “Be My Boyfriend,” And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To "Be My Boyfriend," And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

I’m already planning the rom-com about this meet-cute. I would like Kate Hudson to play me (or, per a coworker’s suggestion, Jennifer Lawrence in a blonde wig), and Chris Pratt to play Rich. To remind you, Rich is the comedian who almost flawlessly impersonates characters from 25 of the most beloved Christmas movies.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the low down. Earlier this week, I penned a “Be My Boyfriend” letter to Rich here on The Frisky. I was floored by how accurate his impressions were in his “25 Days of Christmas Movie Impressions” video, and wanted to tip my hat to him. I told him about how I wanted to find him under my Christmas tree this year and that I would write to Santa to please deliver him. (Yes, that is how I tip my hat. Don’t hate.) Keep reading »
