It’s that time of year again — pumpkin season! If you grew up in the suburbs like I did, you’ll know that those unmistakable gourds are impossible to ignore come October. They line nearly every doorstep, with or without the jack-o-lantern faces for which they’re known. I don’t think I’d mind if I never saw one again … pumpkin overdose, if you will. But I’m definitely not mad about the slew of pumpkin-related beauty products that appear when the leaves start to fall!
Here’s eight pumpkin products that will have you pining for eternal autumn!
Here at The Frisky, we love sluts. When did being in charge of your sexuality become a bad thing? The word first appeared in the English language in the early 1400s as “slutte,” with the meaning being a dirty or slovenly woman. Today, nothing about being a slut has to be off-putting, given the proper accoutrements (condoms, everybody, please!). In fact, having sex for pleasure can be an exercise in healthy living and sound mental health. Promiscuity, and the ability to separate sex and physicality from emotional dependency and attachment, is not something of which to be ashamed.
Let’s take some time to honor proud sluts throughout history!
Photoshop is usually used as a weapon of mass destruction on perfectly lovely and natural photographs of female stars — but even men have not escaped the wrath of an overeager art department dork with a mouse! Just look at poor Adam Levine in Vogue Russia! Either he had a few ribs removed or Photoshop is to blame for that waist. Keep clicking to see 12 other truly disastrous Photoshop fails inflicted upon male stars.
Halloween is about turning heads and causing a ruckus. You and your trick-or-treating partner will be the most controversial couple at the party if you decide to pay homage to one of the biggest sex scandals of the year. I mean, who could possibly ignore Anthony Weiner and the infamous cell phone from whence the d**k pics came? Click through for more sex scandal costumes for couples.
Modern coats can be a little minimalist and boring. However, retro coats have a certain flare that can make staying warm a chic affair. But, you don’t have to go hunting in your local thrift shop (although we wouldn’t fault you if you do) because we have nine coats with a retro swing right here!
Happy Tuesday, Frisky readers! By way of introduction to “What Are We Wearing?” from now on, I’m going to try and share something somewhat
silly revealing about each member of the (regular) staff. For example, I spend a lot of my non-work hours surfing the web (I am a real party animal, what can I say) and I often come across links that I just have to pass along to someone on staff that is in their particular area of interest. I send links about pandas and spanking (not usually in the same story) to Jessica; Julie gets Occupy Wall Street stories, Joseph Gordon Levitt gossip/photos, and funny cat memes; and Ami is the recipient of every ridiculous celeb photo I find, or, if I am feeling wicked, YouTube videos that feature cats doing weird things since she hates them. In return, they send me links about Ryan Gosling and dogs. Oh, and Ami loves to send me links to gross porno GIFs. This is how your Frisky sausage gets made, folks.

While putting together my Halloween inspiration board for Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen (from “Game of Thrones”) I developed a serious appreciation for cosplayers. “Cosplay,” for those of you who don’t know, is short for “costume play.” Cosplayers dress up as their favorite characters from various sci-fi series, comic books, movies, etc. and they really bring it for events like Comic-Con New York, which took place this past weekend. It just so happens that I also recent read the super funny and smart book Geek Girls Unite by Leslie Simon, and in it, she pays tribute to girl geeks who get down at comic conventions, including those cool chicks who do cosplay. Here are 15 (okay, 14 plus one cross-dressing dude) who knocked it out of the park at NY Comic-Con 2011.
Although no one has quite figured out where to purchase it, we hear that Paula Deen has a mouth watering line of lip balm perfect for the person looking to “put a little South on your mouth.” Aren’t we all? Allegedly,Paula’s chapstick comes in butter flavor, banana pudding, or key lime pie. Yum! I’ll take one of each, please, as soon as I figure out where they’re sold. Ooh, and maybe a stick in deep-fried Oreo flavor? Click through to check out more of the world’s weirdest lip balms. [Grubstreet]
As a lady, you know that action is yours if you want it, especially on All Hallow’s Eve. If you costume yourself properly, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding someone to couple up with. Word of warning: make sure you find out what he looks like under zombie makeup before you lead him back to your lair. Assuming all is well under his mask, you should have no trouble getting down as, say, a sexy pizza delivery gal. Click through to see more costumes that will get you laid. Well, probably … we can’t make any guarantees, but we have a good feeling.
Provocative posing is par for the course when you’re a celebrity. Some sexy stars like to take it a step further and show off the queen of all provocative poses — the spread eagle. Megan Fox isn’t afraid to stretch herself when it comes to innovative posing … literally. Click through to see more celebs spreading their
