What We Missed: The Frisky Staff Discusses The Connection Between Arousal And Disgust

"This conversation disgusts me!"
Last Week's Episode
We discussed potty-training in public and rich people sex parties! Read More »

In this episode of our new weekly web series, “What We Missed,” Ami, Jessica, Rachel and I discuss whether or not a new study, which claims that our “disgust sensitivity” is diminished during arousal, is bullshit. We also gab about Patti Stanger’s suggestion that Amy Poehler’s success led to her split from Will Arnett; Ralph Lauren’s new plus-size spokesmodel Robyn Lawley; and a new trend in which South Korean men wear makeup to get ahead in their careers. Watch “What We Missed” above and weigh in with your thoughts in this comments!

The trailer for the biggest television event in Lifetime’s history is here. Infamous, scandalous, dangerous. They drink, they fight, they fornicate. Love affairs, diamonds, paparazzi. Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. That pretty much sums up the “Liz & Dick” trailer. Is it almost November? [MTV]

"West Wing" Back Together!

Michigan Supreme Court candidate Bridget Mary McCormack has the campaign ad to trump all campaign ads: her sister Mary McCormack was on “The West Wing” and pulled some strings to get the cast together and film this amazing four-minute long Aaron Sorkin-style ad. All my old favorites are back — Donna! CJ! Josh! — and they’re walking-and-talking just like the old days. Who knows if it will actually inspire folks in Michigan to vote, though. It might just make bitter “Newsroom” haters like me cry into our “West Wing” DVDs. [YouTube]

  • New Mexico briefly suggested women prove they were victimized by “forcible rape” in applications for childcare assistance. This piece by Reproductive Health Reality Check does a really fantastic job explaining why phrases like “forcible rape” and “legitimate rape” hurt victims and don’t help people who need care.

Check It Out: Intel & Toshiba’s Social Film “The Beauty Inside”

Watch The First Episode!

I pretty much use Facebook exclusively to post pictures of my dog and complain about the outcomes of my favorite reality TV competition shows. But plenty of other people — and companies — use the social networking platform in more creative ways. For example, Intel and Toshiba teamed up with director Drake Doremus (who did the movie “Like Crazy,” which I loved), and actors Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to create “The Beauty Inside,” a social film about a guy named Alex (Grace does his internal monologue) and his girlfriend Leah (Winstead). The film is broken down into a series of episodes in which, each day, Alex wakes up with a different face and body (he uses his Toshiba Portégé Ultrabook — product placement! — to document his changing appearance). The filmmakers held an audition process in order to cast actual audience members to portray Alex in his various states of appearance in the episodes and on his Facebook Timeline. You can watch the first episode above and check out the whole “Beauty Inside” social film on their Facebook page.
