How To Fake It ‘Til You Make It

Every woman that’s looking to conquer the world knows you’ve got to fake it until you make it. And no, we’re not talking about fake hair, fake nails, or fake titties — we mean knowing how to fake like you’ve got your life totally under control. Whether it’s how to fake a clean bathroom for that sudden visit from your mom or how to fake short hair when you can’t commit to cutting (what, you can do that?!), Jennifer Byrne’s Fake It: More Than 100 Shortcuts Every Woman Should Know is your secret recipe for success. Lazy? Noooo! You’re just savvy! [$12.44, Amazon]

15 Memorable Menstruation Moments In Pop Culture

I originally planned to make this a list of the best menstruation moments in pop culture, but quickly discovered that Hollywood in particular does not have a very positive track record when it comes to tackling the crimson wave in movies and TV. Books and music have done a little better, but for the most part, periods have been portrayed either as something to be revolted by or feared, or for over-the-top comedic effect. So, instead this list evolved in the most memorable menstruation moments in movies, music, books and on TV, for better or worse. I know that there are others I didn’t include, so share any additional memorable period references in pop culture in the comments! Keep reading »

If you’re a friend of mine and have tried to make plans with me the last few weeks, you’ve likely failed, because i have been very busy planning my infiltration into the upper echelon of Scientology. And by “planning” I mean reading Going Clear by Lawrence Wright and Beyond Belief by Jenna Miscavige Hill, two new fascinating and in-depth books about the notorious cult/religion, and having extremely exciting dreams in which I am tasked by the authorities to help take down the religion. Both books are so fantastic, I couldn’t pick just one to recommend as a Crave, so I’m doing both, because I am the David Miscavige of The Frisky, only much taller. Keep reading »

Jessica Blair

Sometimes when I’m reading stories on LitErotica.com, I feel like I can tell when a man has written a story and given himself a woman’s pseudonym. Some stories are just … different. They sound overly porn-y, involving words like pounding and ramming, and clearly what some horny dude thinks a woman’s experience of sex might be like. I think to myself, I see through your pseudonym, “Ashleigh St. Pierre!”

But Brits, of course, are a little more subtle. That must be why no one figured out that the romance novelist “Jessica Blair” was actually an 89-year-old grandpa and military veteran named Bill Spence. Keep reading »

So, by now you’ve probably seen the travesty that is this updated Anne of Green Gables cover (that’s it above, no joke). Apparently Anne as an awkward, freckled redhead is out; Anne as a hot, blonde, busty bombshell with bedroom eyes is in. If you’ve read the books, you know this ridiculous makeover actually renders most of the important plot lines completely irrelevant (we can’t really see Anne renouncing God for giving her perfect skin and wavy, golden hair), so we thought we’d help out the publishers by proposing a few updated story ideas for their updated heroine… Keep reading »
