    Friendship Groups Work In Films But Not In Reality

    The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was released in theaters today, and this time around the women have been apart all year, but their summer plans will keep them separated. According to the film’s website, “Now it will take more than a hurried note…or even a treasured pair of pants passed back and forth among them to keep their lives connected.” But this got me thinking…Do friendship groups like The Sisterhood and Sex and the City, in which all the friends get along and are connected equally, exist in reality? In my experience, the answer is a resounding, “No.” Keep reading »

    Top Ten Songs With Sexually Suggestive Food Metaphors

    This is by no means the end all, be all list of sexually-charged food metaphors in popular music, but it is a list of our favorites. Please add any others you can think of in the comments! So, anyone hungry for, say, some hot peas and butter?

    10. “B-Boy, where the f**k you at?/I been looking for your ass since a quarter past/Hot peas and butter, baby, come and get your supper/Before I make you suffer/That’s when you had enough/Can I get hot when you hit the jackpot?/Surely I can, if you the man/I get loose and produce large amounts of juice.” – “Keep On Keepin’ On”, MC Lyte

    Playgirl’s Gone, But We’d Never Really Lusted Over Its Pages Anyway

    In case you haven’t heard, Playgirl magazine folded. It was announced earlier this week that the brand would live online but with more photos and videos and less actual editorial content. Basically, the visual aspect of the magazine, the pornier stuff, rather than any articles. Personally, I never went to the store and bought the magazine, and I wonder how many women are upset about its closing, or even care.

    Magazines in general are having trouble these days, because they have to compete with both other magazines and the online world for advertisers. Even magazines we thought were really great have closed in the last couple years (RIP Jane), so it’s not surprising that another magazine would go, especially one that has had a hard time figuring out where it fits into the marketplace over the last couple years, as former Playgirl editor (and Frisky contributor!) Colleen Kane writes was the case. Keep reading »

    The Daily Squeeze: Special Police Bras, Circumcision And AIDS, And Smart Spiders

  • Thousands of German policewomen have received “bulletproof bras.” Basically, they’re just bras that say “Polizei” (police) and don’t have metal parts, which could impale the wearer if hit by a bullet. [Reuters]

    Music

    He Says/She Says: M83′s “Kim and Jessie”

    French band M83 sounds kind of ’80s, which is what summertime should sound like, in my opinion. I had Nathan take a listen to their synthy song “Kim and Jessie.” Too bad neither of us can roller-skate, otherwise, we’d totally replay this video over and over and over and over and over until we learned all of the skater girls’ moves. We’d obviously have to wear matching outfits, too.

    Catherine: So, we are in the ’80s, undressing.
    Nathan: Wait, is this porn? Keep reading »

    If Men Can Write-Off NFL Tickets, Women Should Be Allowed To Write-Off Shoe Shopping

    Men have long written-off tickets to professional sports events and rounds of golf as business expenses, because, people have said, it’s important to develop relationships outside the office so clients and colleagues will be more comfortable and willing to actually do business with you. If you’re a woman in business who doesn’t golf or enjoy watching men pummel each other, you’re kind of out of luck, aren’t you? If you do business with other women, maybe not. An article from New Jersey’s Star-Ledger suggests that maybe women should be allowed to write-off outings that help them forge relationships, like the Macy’s shoe department. Unfortunately the IRS doesn’t like it when you deduct any business meeting where there are “substantial distractions,” but we’re hoping they come to their senses and realize that important deals can go down in places wherever females can bond, even if there are fabulous Jimmy Choos present.

    UsWeekly.com Doesn’t Know Squat About Brangelina

    That’s because the magazine Us Weekly lives at UsMagazine.com on the web. But guess what occupies UsWeekly.com? A site in support of John McCain for President, which seems to spend all of its space bashing McCain’s opponent, Senator Barack Obama. Some choice diatribes: “Barack Obama’s ‘fight the smears’ campaign is the same strategy Fidel Castro used to convince Cubans to elect him”, “In Indonesia the Barack Obama autobiography titled ‘The Audacity of Hope’ is titled ‘Assault Hope: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse’”, and “Barack Obama warned supporters (behind closed doors of course) that the GOP will use his race to ‘scare’ white voters.” Keep reading »
