You’re A Muppet!

Thanks to the miracle that is 21st century technology, you can now become a Muppet. Toy store FAO Schwarz’s website has a special online Muppet factory, The Muppet Whatnot Workshop, where you can build your own Muppet in your likeness. Pick your body (orange, green, blue), your eyes (girlie, droopy, catty), your hair (yellow boa, brown bob, black pompadour), your outfit (cheerleader, showgirl, mod), and find out what you look like Muppet-style. If you simply must have your stuffed Muppet self, or any other Muppet you envision, you can buy the Muppet you designed, and they’ll build it and ship it to you. Apparently, as a Muppet, I’m $90.

Your Beaver Is Your Best Friend

Check out this awesome, controversial Australian ad for Kotex U, in which a woman takes her pet beaver to the beach. (Her beaver! Get it?) The product website bills itself as a “place that takes the ‘oo’ out of the vagina taboo,” and reports 94 percent of Australian women have a nickname for their cooters. Watch the lady and her beaver hang out, see what happens when a beaver has to decide between period panties and a thong, and find out how many people it takes to turn a beaver into a girl’s best friend.

French Women Don’t Date

Our friends over at YourTango have an interesting new webisode that’s part of their “Single in France” series by Liz Tuccillo: “‘Date’ Doesn’t Translate.” What’s it like to date in France? “We don’t have dates,” the French women explain to the silly American woman. Mon Dieu! Instead, one reveals, when men and women get together, “It’s like an open window.” Apparently, les femmes don’t need rules or The Rules because they’re more spontaneous than us. Sounds revolutionary, really. Watch the video to find out what the crazy French ladies say about dating and sex. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Interview: Rachel Kramer Bussel On Sarah Palin Erotica

Even with the presidential election over, Sarah Palin remains a prominent figure. From her hairstyle to her politics, America has been and remains obsessed with the female politician who seemingly came out of nowhere. And while some debated her political platform, others were more preoccupied by her sexual identity. From a Palin sex doll to an homage adult movie, the sexualization of Palin won’t quit. Most recently, writer Rachel Kramer Bussel created Sarah Palin Erotica (http://sarahpalinerotica.com/), a site dedicated to erotic stories about the former Republican vice presidential candidate. After the jump, an interview with Bussel that reveals why Americans can’t get over Palin. Keep reading »

Hollywood It Girls Go Pinup

Dita Von Teese, watch out. Check out this coffee table book of photographs by celebrity photographer Timothy White, starring Hollywood It-girls done up as retro-pinups. In the past, White’s shot stars ranging from Harrison Ford to Will Smith, but this time around he went for old school Hollywood, girly glamor. His pinup makeover subjects include Cindy Crawford, Gina Gershon, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Kate Hudson, Michelle Trachtenberg, Molly Sims, Vanessa Williams, and Mary-Kate Olsen. You can check out Olsen’s shot here. We like that the images are classy, not crass. These days, more is the new less. Keep reading »

Follow Live Election Results On The Frisky

Today, I got up at five o’clock this morning to vote. At the polling place, I waited in line for two and a half hours. The line snaked down a hall, around a corner, back up the hall, and then all the way around again along the wall. Some people were voting for Obama, and some people were voting for McCain — but, in a way, it didn’t really matter. No matter who you’re voting for, or who wins, this is quite possibly the most important presidential election in US history. And it’s pretty awesome that we get to be a part of making history by voting. So, if the Frisky is your home away from home online, and we hope it is, as it is ours, you can be a part of Election Day on The Frisky, courtesy of CNN.com, with a special widget created just for Frisky readers. Continuously updated with breaking news and election returns as they happen, the Frisky’s electoral widget is located on the right-hand side of every page, so you can watch this historical election unfold before your eyes in real time.

Tomorrow at the polls, take a photograph of yourself voting in your election finest — whether it’s homemade or high-end — send Zac your picture, and he’ll post it to the website for all to admire. The only challenge is that it appears you have to vote for Obama to make the cut. Of course, maybe if you send him a pic of yourself voting for McCain in your favorite Palin-inspired outfit, he’ll post that, too. Or, well, maybe not. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Vivienne Tam Creates Stylish Laptop For Women

The unlikely team of Hewlett-Packard and fashion designer Vivienne Tam have conspired to create what may be the chicest ever laptop for tech-savvy fashionistas. A demo of the portable computer that looks like a clutch debuted at this year’s New York Fashion Week on the Tam catwalk. If you didn’t know, you’d think it was a purse, not a high-tech gadget. The “China Chic” outside is scarlet and blooming with pink peonies, and the PC notebook’s insides are red. At 2.4 lbs., it’s totally totable, and it comes with an almost full-sized keypad, 60 gigabytes, and a mini-webcam. The best part? It’s a steal at $700. As of this week, it’s available for pre-order. Next month, the HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition will be available in silver, pink, or black. That way, you can match your laptop to your shoes. Keep reading »

Safe Sex Makeup

Beauty brand NARS is raising safe sex awareness with two new cosmetic kits that come in handy when it comes to sex. The “Safer Set” includes two NARS condoms imprinted with “PREVENTION IS THE CURE” and a popular cream stick face highlighter in Multiple in Orgasm color. The “Safest Set” includes the same highlighter and a small black book promoting abstinence that gives you a list of ways you can just say no to the boys. A portion of the sales from both products go to amFAR’s global safe sex education initiative, so whether or not you’re doing it, you’ll be looking good and doing good. NARS has a long history of uniting sex and cosmetics. Lip colors come in Promiscuous, Manhunt, and Orgasm. Keep reading »
