Another beautiful spring day in NYC! Yesterday, I even got a little boob sweat, which means ass sweat is next, yippee! No, really, I actually am excited. Boob and butt sweat are the primary indicators that the temps have taken a turn for the balmy and summer is not far away. Click on to see what we’re wearing today…
Baby Blue hath emerged from her castle and has deigned to bestow her royal side eye upon us commoners! No, but seriously, Beyonce and Jay-Z brought the beloved future President of the United States (Beyonce says the job is hers if she wants it) out to lunch with them and, yup, she’s as cute as ever.

I recently started making my own energy bars, and I’m blown away by how easy they are. I make mine with coconut, peanut butter, buckwheat, flax seeds, and whatever other healthy, protein-packed ingredients I find hiding in my cabinets. Most energy bar recipes are no-bake (just stir everything together on the stove top) and some just require a quick spin in the food processor and a couple hours in the fridge–they seriously couldn’t be easier to make. And in keeping with our travel theme this week, they’re perfect for snacking on airplanes or long car rides. Want to get in on the energy bar action?

Every day, The Frisky staff gets packages in the mail filled with publicity goodies like books, makeup, magazines. But this week there was a game changer in the morning post: WIGS. Someone sent us four wigs from Tabitha Coffey, Daisy Fuentes, and Sherri Shepherd’s wig lines. Naturally we tried all the hairpieces on — sometimes multiple wigs at once — and snapped pics for a very special edition of What Are We Wigging Today?
We think we look very glamorous. Don’t you agree?
Sophie de Oliveira Barata, the London designer who started the Alternative Limb Project, is reinventing the way the world sees prosthetics. Her original bespoke limbs, (like the Snake Arm that amputee Jo-Jo Cranfield wears above) are reminiscent of surrealist works of art, yet serve an important function for the person who wears them. Oliveira Barata hopes that her re-imagining of alternative limbs will help people with disabilities feel more powerful and in control:
“It’s drawing attention to their disability in a positive way … Rather than people seeing what’s missing, it’s about what they’ve got … Having an alternative limb is about claiming control and saying ‘I’m an individual and this reflects who I am … Generally the whole technology is moving towards trying to recapture a lifelike limb that looks realistic and also acts realistic in motion. In this instance I’m doing the complete opposite and I think it does capture that whole childlike imagination — it’s like being a superhero with super powers.”
I could not love this concept more. I’ve been obsessing over this concept of limbs as art since I saw amputee athlete Aimee Mullins in a pair of ornate, glass high heel legs in Matthew Barney’s Cremaster Cycle.

Boner. It hasn’t always referred to a penis, you know. In fact, in the early ’80s, there was a sitcom character named Boner, that had absolutely nothing to do with erections. But for those of us born in the ’90s, the term will likely be linked to hard-ons.
There are quite a few words like this — words that may have started out innocently enough but are now “not-ready-for-prime-time” terms. We thought it’d be interesting to explore where words like douchebag, twat and cunt came from. It’s not always where you’d think!
After an accident left 43-year-old Rafe Biggs a quadriplegic, he found a new way to experience sexual pleasure. About a year after becoming paralyzed, Rafe discovered that he has a “surrogate penis”… on his hand when he was able to have an orgasm by having his girlfriend suck his thumb.
“I felt this build-up of energies and felt I was getting closer and closer to orgasm … When I did it was one wave of pleasure after another – it was amazing. I never thought it would be possible, but massaging and sucking on my thumb, feels a lot like my penis used to feel – it’s really hot,” said Rafe.
Doctors call this a “transfer orgasm,” when another body part gives the same sensation as the genitals. I call that un-fucking-believable. Good for Rafe and his penis thumb. [IB Times]
