BONG. BONG. BONG. What’s that noise? It’s the collective ticking of biological clocks in the Frisky offices. Seriously, don’t bring any babies around here. We’re a bunch of baby-hungry harridans. But can you blame us? We had to watch “little mommy” doll commercials like this growing up. [Sociological Images] Keep reading »
Former model and Glamour editor Edith Vogelhut has recently come forward to say that she was also raped by Roman Polanski. Vogelhut claims that in 1974, when she was 21 years old, she met the director at an industry party. He took her back for drinks at Jack Nicholson’s home, where Polanski pressured her to take ecstasy. Later in the evening, Vogelhut said he led her into a bedroom where he handcuffed, drugged, and repeatedly sodomized her. “I was humiliated, I had absolutely no one to tell,” she says, explaining why she has kept silent for so long. Vogelhut says it was the confession of the second accuser, actress Charlotte Lewis, that gave her the strength to go to police and talk about the incident publicly. Keep reading »
So, when Bill Clinton wants to take a nervous crap on daughter Chelsea‘s wedding day, this is where he’ll do it. You’re looking at the porta-potties the Clintons have rented for the occasion at a grand total of $15,000. It goes without saying that these bathrooms are nicer than mine, not to mention The Frisky’s ladies room, where we recently found a cockroach! However, we do have a stack of gossip mags in ours, so there. [via Gawker] Keep reading »
An open dialogue about sex? That would be much too simple. Instead, the University of Central Florida has created an “Avatar”-like video game “that promotes sexual abstinence,” according to Fox News Orlando. How does it work? A pre-teen girl puts on a “motion capture” suit outfitted with marks which are picked up by infrared light and then simulated on-screen. Then the girl gets propositioned by another avatar. “A boy similar in age might approach the person playing the game and might ask her to make out or there might be some sexual innuendo,” explained UCF Professor Anne Norris of the UCF Institute for Simulation and Training. “They’ll have an opportunity to interact with the avatar and they’ll get points for social skills that they develop.” Which I assume means she says “no” to sex.
And hey, Floridians, the whole shebang will cost you $434,000 in federal tax dollars! Keep reading »
Are you insecure in your relationship? Distrusting of your partner, constantly worried of their motivations, or scared of being rejected? Insecurity is never a good feeling or a positive quality to possess, especially now that there is proof that people who are insecure might actually be at a greater risk for a number of health problems. A new study shows that people with relationship insecurity, which researchers classify as insecure attachment, are more likely to experience stroke, high blood pressure, and even heart attacks than their secure counterparts. According to the study, there are three primary types of attachment. Which one do you have, if any? Keep reading »
