Let’s be honest… that awkward moment when we find out our ex is dating someone new is usually pretty unpleasant. And for some, it triggers an immediate response in the brain, causing us to stop thinking completely and walk over to the computer to Google the new guy or girl who took our place. And then, kind of like my addiction to potato chips (it has to be a real thing), some people are unable to stop stalking, becoming obsessed with their “replacements.” Before you know it, you’ve created a fake profile on Facebook so you can “friend” him or her inconspicuously, while learning everything about them, including their constant need to post selfies of food and how often they groom their pet Chow-Chow, Beanie.

I don’t know about you, but every year after I watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, I feel like shit about my body for at least a solid month. Many women, including myself, who are normally proud of their figures, all have moments that trigger their biggest body insecurities: love handles, stretch marks, cellulite, whatever it may be. My trigger happens to be the VS Fashion Show. So today, when I learned about American Eagle’s new #AerieREAL campaign, I was thrilled.
American Eagle has launched new campaign for their spring line of Aerie intimates featuring only untouched and airbrush-free models— tattoos, blemishes, tummy chub and all. Keep reading »
You know how some people say they’ve seen the face of Jesus in their burnt toast? Well, there’s a product that can make that happen for everyone … but instead of Jesus, it’s a vagina.
Novel toaster company Burnt Impressions is known for creating toasters that brand custom images into your bread as it toasts. So naturally, it was only a matter of time before some stoned dude (sorry, I can only assume) over at Burnt Impressions was like, “I’VE GOT IT. Let’s put genitals on our toast.” And then that happened. Keep reading »
As a twin, news stories about “my kind” always hold a special place in my heart, but this latest one is a real doozy.
This past weekend, Lanny and Tracy Barnes, 31-year-old twin sisters from Colorado who both participated in the 2006 Winter Games, were to compete in their final qualifying races to join this year’s Olympic biathletes, who will head to Sochi, Russia, next month. (And, in case you’re wondering, Olympic biathlon combines cross-country skiing and target shooting.)
Tracy, who’s five minutes older than her sister, competed and earned herself a well-deserved spot on the team. Lanny, on the other hand, fell ill and was unable to compete in three out of the four weekend tryout races, which, consequently, disqualified her.
And here’s where it gets good. When Tracy was officially offered a position on the 2014 USA biathlon team, she declined the spot, knowing that her sister would be pegged for the honor instead. And she was. Keep reading »

The ever-fabulous dream team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back to host one of the biggest parties of the year, and, obviously, we’ll be watching and tweeting along as the magic unfolds. Keep reading »
Just when you thought your friends were oversharing on Facebook and Twitter, someone else comes along and puts them to shame in the TMI department.
Exhibit A: New mom, Ruth Iorio.
In case you haven’t heard, Ruth decided to liveblog her home birth, giving her followers (and the world) a play-by-play of her birthing experience. As totally grossed out as I am by the Facebook photos of Ruth’s bloody bathtub and details about how her “asshole aches,” I find myself intrigued, and unable to look away … kind of like a bad car accident that you can’t stop staring at. Meanwhile, Amelia thinks it’s all awesome and educational and, yeah, sure, a bit scary. Keep reading »
It’s safe to say that if you’re a human between the ages of 18 to 65 with a Facebook account, your friends’ New Years Resolutions have been popping up on your news feed from the moment the ball dropped.
Some hope to cut back on their vino intake, others are trying to become more domestic, and, if you’re like me, tons of your pals are eager to get healthier and slimmer by hitting the gym in 2014.
But not without some other asshole complaining about it… Keep reading »
Since I began working at The Frisky, it’s safe to say my mind has taken a permanent vacation in the gutter: I see phallic clouds, vaginal-looking sandwiches and the number 69 is everywhere. So when someone else stumbles upon something unintentionally inappropriate, I smile wide and remember that I’m not alone in this dirty, dirty world. Take for example, this children’s book illustration, which was posted to Reddit by an appalled parent. Keep reading »
