We here at The Frisky have a love/hate relationship with Thanksgiving. We love the food, but hate the stress of cooking. We love our families, but hate the awkward things they say. We love going home, but hate traveling.
We have so many things to look forward to (yummy pie) and just as many to avoid (politics). Don’t let any of the usual holiday quarrels ruin your holiday. This year, you will have a game plan. The following gallery contains everything you need to navigate Thanksgiving like a pro. We encourage you to use this survival guide as light reading on your voyage home, or a quick reference under the dining room table as you decide whether to have a third helping of stuffing.
Thanksgiving turkey crafts: they’re not just for small children anymore! Thanks to Pinterest, now anyone with orange construction paper and a couple of google-y eyes can make a DIY turkey craft for their holiday hearth. Some are the work of skilled artisans. Others suggest that turkey crafts are best left to kindergarteners. Here are eight Thanksgiving turkey crafts on Pinterest, ranked in order from least to most ridiculous.
(Before you do, take a look at this turkey above. Look good and hard. This is what a turkey actually looks like, my friends).
Every year families and friends gather together to give thanks and stuff their faces with as much turkey and cornbread as possible without imploding. But after the potatoes have been plopped into Tupperware and the nightcaps are a-flowin’, it’s time to whip out the group-friendly activities. Game time, bitches.
We’ve put together a list of some fun Thanksgiving games to play in groups, along with the hazards that come with each. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Keep reading »
We can surely appreciate the appeal of a greased-up, muscular dude with chiseled abs, and we’ve dated our fair share of super skinny hipster guys who liked to steal our skinny jeans, but when it comes down to it, we think chubby guys are where it’s at. From their cozy body heat to the great sex (spoiler alert: extra pounds = extra bounce = extra hot), we can’t get enough. Here’s why, in GIFs, of course! Keep reading »
Nostalgia for the ’90s is at an all-time high. Fashion designers and pop stars are constantly throwing back to this ridiculous decade, while it seems that every other post on our Facebook feed is of the “10 Reasons The 90′s Rocked” variety. Everyone’s wearing overalls and Doc Martens again. Boy bands are enjoying another resurgence. Thick brows are in. But somehow, these trends never seem to make it to the bedroom. We’re here to change that. Put on your favorite pair of full-coverage, faux velvet panties from Victoria’s Secret and whip out Madonna’s Sex book, because you’re about to experience a wave of ’90s nostalgia where it really matters: your sex life. From dirty Furby talk to S&M with slap bracelets, we’ve got some naughty ideas for how to revive your favorite decade… Keep reading »
We have all been there. A casual happy hour turns into a dark, drunken blur where one can’t remember how many or what type of alcohol has been consumed. We all pay the price. But no one is more predictable than the Drunk Boyfriend. The men in our lives who behave so uniquely in our daily lives turn into the same man when wasted. The predictability of each stage of a boyfriend’s intoxication is almost comforting. Keep reading »
We’ve all been awkwardly interrupted during sex at some point. It’s just unavoidable. Sometimes the circumstances are more extreme (hoodlums peeing on the windshield while we’re giving head in the back seat of a car), but more often, the culprits of coitus interruptus are our modern day gadgets and gizmos. Technology is supposed to be making our lives better, but on more than one occasion it’s made our sex lives far worse. Oh, to never get another text message from mom and dad while you’re delving into anal play. This is the world we live in. Below, a few common scenarios of how technology can spoil your chance of achieving orgasm. Keep reading »
If our collective dating experience has taught us anything, it’s that sexual compatibility is key to a long-lasting relationship. And sexual compatibility requires both mental and physical attraction. (Yes, that sometimes includes but is not limited to penis size.) If at any point in a relationship one of these is missing, it is a disastrous dealbreaker…
Improving your sex life used to be all about eating a glazed doughnut off a penis and locking naked bodies together with saran wrap. Sure, sometimes Cosmo gets a little ridiculous with their sex tips, but at least they involve actual sex acts. Recently, sex advice has become terribly…unsexy.
Click through for some sex tips that seem to have very little to do with sex.
If one rule holds true about human sexuality, it’s that everyone goes hogwild for boobs — big bazoongas, itty bitty titties, sideboob, underboob, nip slips, boob tricks, cleavage! Tits, tits, tits! chants the human race. Although we’ve known this forever because DUH, a groundbreaking new study published in the journal Sex Roles confirms once and for all that all human creatures love to ogle boobs. After hooking people up to eye censors and forcing them to look at boobie pics (the horror!), researchers discovered that “both sexes fixed their gaze more on women’s chests and waists and less on faces.” Yep, science has officially proven that it’s not just straight dudes who love to stare at boobs; gay men and straight women are also guilty of ignoring the “my eyes are up here” rule. We love to look tits, too. Why, you ask? Here are some reasons we might get caught checking out other women’s boobs. [Gawker] Keep reading »
