Are We Up To Date On Our Satanic Ritual Markings?

I thought we could use a little brush-up lesson on how to identify a corpse ravaged by Satanists. I hope this girl got paid well to play a Satanically marked dead body in a bikini being prodded by a dirty old man. I’m glad he had the good sense not to demonstrate the “penis placed inside the mouth of the dead person” bit. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Girl Beetles Are Thirsty For Love

Thirsty? Maybe you should go boink. Well, you should if you’re a lady and also a beetle. For female beetles, sex is like a big jug of Vitamin Water because the males produce literally 10 percent of their body weight in semen. So, in human terms, my average BF would be blowing a 20 lb. wad. Dayum! Anyway, a University Of Exeter study found dehydrated lady beetles will literally have sex with a male beetle just because they need a drink. And you thought your standards were low!

Women Whose Names End In “A” Have More Sex

I don’t need a study to tell me that I was destined to be a hoochie mama, but here one is anyway. According to a French study, women whose names end in the letter “a” have more sexual partners over the course of their lifetime than the average woman, who typically has 4.4 partners. Um, try way, way, way above average. I’ve always been an overachiever. [Time] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Introducing Spider Girl!

  • Meet Spider Girl, Marvel Comics’ newest character! Anya Corazon is a 16-year-old Latina high school student who moonlights as a superheroine. Her writer said the comics company wanted a strong female character who wasn’t “sexualized” or a “trophy” girl — and Marvel stressed she is not Spider-Man’s girlfriend!

  • Rocker Patti Smith won the National Book Award for nonfiction for her memoir Just Kids, about her friendship with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Another female author, Jaimy Gordon, took home the fiction prize for her novel Lord of Misrule. Have any Frisky fans read either book? [New York Times]
  • Sarah Palin told ABC News’ Barbara Walters she could beat President Obama in the next election and is seriously considering a run for the White House. The interview will air on December 9. [NPR]
  • Actress Portia de Rossi has been accused of sexism for requesting a female interviewer on an Australian show. In defense of Portia, her memoir is about her struggle with anorexia and coming out of the closet as a lesbian, so I could see why she wanted to chat with a fellow lady for a gender-related discussion.

Lady Politician Slaps Her Male Colleague In Argentina

Penning “Today’s Lady News” every day sure makes me want to march down to Washington, D.C. and make a stink. But one lady politician in Argentina lost her cool and actually doled out a slap to a windbag colleague. During a budget meeting broadcast on live TV, Graciela Camano popped her colleague Carlos Kunkel in the face and stalked off. Kunkel, fortunately, took getting smacked in stride, and started laughing. At least she put America’s seemingly out-of-control lawmakers in perspective. [Guanabee] Keep reading »

Smooth Move: Camel Targets Hipsters With “Williamsburg” Cigarettes

Smooth move, Camel. You may think you’re being smart by touting Williamsburg, the Brooklyn hipster enclave, on your new cigarette packaging. You think you’re appealing to youngsters who feed on Brooklyn pride and the idea of “authenticity.” But newsflash: hipsters hate being called hipsters and probably aren’t going to associate themselves with products that imply it. In fact, if you want to rope in the 20-something skinny jeans crowd, you should probably make yourself as completely uncool as possible. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
