Hey, big news! Abercrombie & Fitch has a few T-shirts in its “New College” line that are, like, way sexual and sexist and not particularly funny. (The shirts above say “Show the Twins,” “Female Students Wanted for Sexual Research,”and “Female streaking encouraged.”) And people are mad about it! The American Family Association (AFA), a religious organization, says the shirts promote a “sex-as-recreation” agenda, but I don’t really think that’s the problem or a problem at all. I mean, sex is recreation. However, the shirts are sexist, foul and not funny. That said, they are extremely helpful in identifying douchebags from a distance and that is a plus.

We ladies work so hard to heat things up in the bedroom. It’s a damn shame what we’re cooking up when we’re naked, never tastes that good going down — literally. Semen is hardly the fine wine of sexytimes. But Blue Mountain Nutraceuticals in the U.K. is turning the mouth-puckering lemons of love into, well, apples. Supposedly, you just have to convince your man to swallow first — swallow their Hard Apple pills (a completely vegetarian herbal supplement), that is. Sounds like we ladies won’t be the only thing doing his body good. After a week or two on the vitamins, his wad will really be a sweet release. Could these apple tablets that make your man’s load taste fruit-flavored be the new “American Pie”? Probs works better than Jason Biggs’ approach … but one thing is for sure, we’ll never look at whipped cream on apple pie the same way again. [ITB Innovation] Keep reading »
Today, the U.K.’s Telegraph is running a photo gallery of men’s shoes that will give the shorties some height. (Side question: do guys wear lifts anymore?) Most of the newspaper’s picks aren’t too offensive, but the pair pictured above by Schuh definitely has a dramatic heel that’s a bit costume-y. Besides wishing we’d thought of the idea ourselves (well, to do the gallery; we’ve already reported on the medge extensively), it got us thinking about this most serious issue.
For some women, short guys are an automatic dealbreaker. (Although Tom Cruise seems to have no problem.) Think they’d reconsider dating one if he had a few more inches on him? Or is a guy wearing a noticeable heel too over-the-top? [Telegraph.co.uk] Keep reading »
Installation artists Jason Krugman, Stella Kim, and Ben Chao have got balls! Their latest piece of work is a giant replica of a scrotum. And much like your man’s fun bags, the Teste Touch responds to a gentle caress and, er, rises to the occasion. Check out this vid of the interactive art in action. From the looks of it, while we Frisky girls have been reminding dudes what not to forget during sex, the men finally got someone to represent their desires in the sack too. [WOW] Keep reading »
Our friends at Geekologie found this video of an amazing kid (we’re guessing he can’t be older than 13), who figured out how to solve a Rubik’s Cube while playing a wicked set of Guitar Hero. Says Geekologie, “Now I’m not sure where that’s gonna get him in life, but I’m guessing far. Far, far away from the ladies.”
Yesterday we reported on a survey that claims men spend 43 minutes a day, or almost a year of their lives over a lifetime, eying up the ladies. Great. Fascinating. Not that surprising. Then the study went on to say that us lady-folk stare down our male counterparts about 20 minutes each day, ogling around six different men. To that, I call that bull-s**t! See, what I’m now thinking, after digesting the facts a bit more, is that there’s no way in hell women only spend 20 minutes each day checking out men—it’s got to be at least on par, if not more, with what the men devote. We’ve all answered surveys and we’ve all been known to fib a little here and there (isn’t there a study out there that says women lie during these studies all the time or something!?), whether it was to make ourselves feel better, or to make women-kind look better. Am I right? I say it’s time to come clean on the man-ogling! Women may be more stealth about checking a guy out, and we may not hold our stares quite as long, but let’s be serious…20 minutes of each day? Come on. I’ve seen women on their lunch breaks spend their entire hour outside, pretending to eat their sandwiches or read their magazines while not-so-secretly eyeing every man that passed them by. Not in a I-want-to-jump-his-bones way (well maybe some of the time), but in a, huh-he’s-hot or ha-not-ever sort of way. So ladies, come on, spill it! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
If you’ve ever walked by a construction site during the summer months (hell, any month of the year) or caught your boyfriend doing a triple take at the hot piece of a-s-s that just unknowingly strolled by, you won’t find this entirely shocking: The average male spends about a year of his life eyeing up women. According to a new British study, men will spend 43 minutes a day ogling ten different women. I don’t think I could find ten different men I’d want to ogle each day! (Apparently, women aren’t quite as stare-down prone: The average woman spends 20 minutes a day looking at six men.) This news, I suspect, will make some women happy—and frustrate the hell out of the rest. It all depends on where you fall on the want-to-be ogled scale—do you love it, but only when you know the guy and you’re feeling hot? Hate it any time of the day, month, year? Will take the male attention where ever you can get it? [Daily Mail]

Nike has released a new version of the SB Dunk Low inspired by Will Ferrell‘s Ron Burgundy character in “Anchorman.” We’ve seen very few things as fugly as these shoes. Was it really necessary to have burgundy suede, striped polyester, tan suede, white leather, and a bright yellow Nike Swoop all on the same sneaker? I think not. Ron Burgundy’s suits were a joke and should have stayed that way. Thankfully, the Will Ferrell sneaker will only be sold in Japan, so we won’t have to witness a wanna-be hipster trying to rock them.

Another day, another thing that’s “bad for women.” This time it’s emo vampires. Slate’s Grady Hendrix writes:
America’s young women [are] receiving troubling misinformation about the male of the species from “Twilight.” These women are going to be shocked when the sensitive, emotionally available, poetry-writing boys of their dreams expect a bit more from a sleepover than dew-eyed gazes and chaste hugs.
Whatever. Why is there always so much hand-wringing over the pop culture influences that are supposedly awful for women? What about men? I can think of plenty of pop culture trends that could be just as harmless to them. Here are 15 to start… Keep reading »
