45 Things We’ve Learned From Sex Scandals

Over the past few years working at The Frisky, I have covered an exorbitant number of sex scandals.

It’s unclear whether people are stepping out more on their marriages, or if technology (texting, Twitter, Facebook) leaves people more vulnerable to being caught, or if our 15-seconds-of-fame culture leads second and third parties to step forward and soak up the limelight more than they would have in the past. But it’s clear that something is certainly up. Insert Weiner joke here.

Oddly, through the sex scandal onslaught, I feel like we’ve learned an awful lot. After the jump, 45 lessons—both big and small—that recent sex scandals have taught us. Who knew they were so educational? Keep reading »

The Poop Burger Is Here

 

Telling someone to “eat a s**t sandwich” is no longer an insult reserved for your worst enemies. It’s something you can literally do. Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda has made a scatological breakthrough with his alternative meat product containing a protein extracted from human poop. It’s more delicately referred to as “sewage mud.” Turd burgers, while still way more expensive than regular meat, are incredibly high in protein, low in calories and fat, and eco-friendly. Yeah, that still doesn’t put me remotely in the universe of wanting to eat one. Or eat anything for the rest of the day for that matter. Thanks, science! [In Habitat] Keep reading »

The Vancouver Riots Makeout Couple Revealed

Don’t riots and violence just make you feel so passionate? No? Me neither, which is why I would love to know if there was alcohol involved when these people laid down in the street and kissed while Stanley Cup hooligans tore up the city of Vancouver all around them. (I am going to go with “probably” on that one.) Most media outlets speculated for days that the Vancouver riots makeout couple was a hoax somehow. But Toronto’s Globe & Mail got on the case and identified these two crazy kids: Scott Jones and Alex Thomas. Keep reading »

Bud Light Lime’s Softcore UFC Ring Girl Ad: Innuendo With A Slice Of Lime

 

Oh, beer advertisements. What would I blog about without you? Bud Light Lime’s UFC sponsorship seamlessly blends panty-clad “ring girl” Arianny Celeste with “Bud Light” stamped on her ass (klassy!), lime slices gingerly covering her lady bits, and ultimate fighting/sexual innuendo like “I like a guy that can go more than one round!” Ay carumba, this is more softcore than some porns I’ve seen.

Men, don’t you resent being advertised to in this way? Or are you A-OK with the whole “tits, beer, more tits” thing? [AdWeek] Keep reading »
