A Man Can Have Two Penises! What?

Hi kiddies, it’s time for your science lesson of the day. I have learned of a rare condition called diphallus in which a man can have duplicate penises. There have only been about 100 cases reported in the world since 1609 … so it’s really, really rare. Usually, only one of the penises is fully capable, but in some cases both of the peens work. Just think of all the, er … interesting possibilities with a diphallic man. A few questions (well, more than a few): Can both phalluses have sex at once? What do you do with the other one when the first-string penis is otherwise engaged? Do these men have an extra reserve of sperm? Would it be considered cheating if he had sex with someone else with his other wang? Add your questions below. I know you have some. [OMG Facts] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: The DMV Now Offering Opinions About Your Sex Life

  • Meet Amber Yust, a transgender San Francisco woman who contacted the DMV to change her official gender from “male” to “female” and received a letter from a bigoted DMV staffer calling her an “abomination” and a DVD comparing homosexuality to being possessed by demons. Now Yust, 23, is suing because it turns out the same DMV employee refused to process another transgendered woman’s name-change application back in 2009. [Queerty]

Prince William And Kate Middleton’s Engagement Photo Gets Creepy

We thought Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s official engagement photo was a little weird. And now that we’ve seen Prince Charles and Diana’s engagement photo, it’s downright effing creepy. William and Kate are posed exactly as Charles and Diana were, from the placement of their hands on each other, to the women wearing the exact same hulking rock. William looks eerily like his dad, only with red hair. And Kate looks an awful lot like a long-haired Diana, which is exceptionally wrong because she’s, well, dead. Not to mention, why would these two want to emulate Williams’ parents’ photo as their marriage was notoriously unhappy? What do you guys think—is this creepy or is it just me? [NY Daily News]

Simon’s Cat Does Christmas

Here at The Frisky we love us some “Simon’s Cat” videos, the line drawing animations staring Simon and his ne’er-do-well cat. The latest installment arrives just in time for the holidays with a fitting theme: “Santa Claws.” We think you can guess where this one is going. Once Simon’s cat gets left alone with the Christmas tree and gifts, there is nothing sacred, no item exempt from this feline’s tearing claws, no in-house tree that cannot be decimated.

NY Times Critic Says The Sugar Plum Fairy Is Too Fat

As we know, Natalie Portman, who was nominated for a Golden Globe this morning for her role in “Black Swan,” was tasked with losing 20 pounds to play the role of a prima ballerina. Well, according to the Times dance critic, Alastair Macaulay, there’s another ballerina who should embrace a similar weight loss regimen. In a recent review of the New York City Ballet’s “The Nutcracker,” Macaulay had this to say of Jenifer Ringer, who played the Sugar Plum Fairy: “[She] looked as if she’d eaten one sugar plum too many.” Ringer, now 37 years old (and much, much smaller than an average woman of her age, for what it’s worth), has been public about her battle with anorexia and bulimia early in her career, and appeared on the “Today” show yesterday to discuss Macaulay’s stinging remarks.
