Late last night, I got an email from a Frisky reader studying at the University of California at Davis.

11 People And The Inanimate Objects They Are Sexually Attracted To

The other day I told you about Becky, the Dr. Laura guest who can only get off by humping the corner of her laundry basket, which she’s had since college. She admitted to preferring the basket her husband Steve’s really “large” penis. There’s no denying that clean laundry is sexy as hell, but it’s clear that her feelings for the laundry basket run deeper than that.

48 Pagan Baby Names Perfect For Your Little One

Everywhere you look there’s a John, Christian (Christie?), Daniel, Jacob, Sarah, Lily — names derived from the Bible, or at least credited that way. My Jewish friend chose the Hebrew name ‘Ethan’ for her son, and I”m sure many of you know people whose religious beliefs influenced their children’s names as well.

American Apparel’s publicist Ryan Holiday is apparently planning to do just this, according to reports that he landed a major book deal with publisher Portfolio, which will allegedly earn him $500,000 or more. However, the New York Observer‘s Emily Witt writes that she got a copy of the proposal from a book editor, which reveals the book is not exactly the kind of tell-all early reports suggest it will be.
