Men Feel Old At 58, Women At Only 29

Women feel like they’re getting old when they’re a mere 29, while men don’t feel their age until they’re 58, according to a new study.

A quarter of women surveyed said they felt like they were over-the-hill when they found their first gray hairs, while men said age didn’t sink in with them until their sex lives were affected, the Daily Mail reported.

The poll, done by funeral company Avalon Funeral Plans, also found that 10 percent of women said their true age hit them when their skin lost its youthful glow. Another 50 percent said they felt old when their “assets” started to give after childbirth and breastfeeding. Read more… Keep reading »

Quickies: Today Is April Fools’ Day & Courtney Love Saved Kelly Osbourne’s Life

  • Courtney Love is good at deflecting answers to questions about her sobriety. She still takes lots of of drugs but they’re all non-narcotic, so it’s OK. But more importantly, she once saved Kelly Osbourne’s life by injecting stuff into her boobs. [D Listed]
  • Did you happen to catch the “Jersey Shore” reunion last night. I missed it, but I heard it was “gross.” It’s on my weekend “To Do” list. [NY Mag]
  • Here’s what our favorite celebs looked like when they went to prom. Awww, they had bad taste in high school just like us. [Celebuzz]

Today’s Lady News: Readers’ Submission Edition!

Hello there, dear Frisky readers! As you’re reading this, I’m currently moving into my new single-girl apartment and likely getting yelled at by my father about how I have too many clothes and why I packed a box of rocks. (They’re books, I swear!) Alas, this means I’m not able to write up our beloved Today’s Lady News column. But never fear: You can submit your own links to news articles and blog posts about women, girls, trans-identified people, gender roles, feminism or sexism in the comments. Just write a sentence or two summary explaining what the link is about and give everyone a heads up if it has language or imagery that’s NSFW.

I’ll be back with our regularly scheduled Today’s Lady News on Monday. Thanks everyone! Keep reading »

Human Pony Ride In The Park, Anyone?


Just a regular old Saturday afternoon in the park for the Fountain Valley, CA “Pony Play” club. Human ponies get hitched up to a cart and trot their little hearts out. If they’re good, they may get an apple or a carrot after a vigorous ride. A great afternoon activity for vegans and kinksters. Giddy up! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Ladies, Do You Have A “Buff Bay”?

Because I am committed to bringing you the most current and up-to-date genital slang, I feel obligated to share. My friend (who shall remain nameless) was at work yesterday when a female co-worker was checking out her camel toe. Weird … yes. After staring at her crotch for a full minute, the co-worker said to her, “Damn, girl! You have a buff bay!” Naturally, my friend had no idea what this meant. Have you heard it before? I certainly have not. Apparently a “buff bay” is a slang term for a fat, juicy vagina. I have confirmed this information on Urban Dictionary, the premiere source for all genital slang. According to Urban Dictionary, the term originated in Hackney, London amongst a group of lads who hung out in The Pembury Estate between the years of 1989 to 2000. OK! And I was still grappling with the term “fat monkey.” So there it is. Buff bay. You’re welcome. Keep reading »

Women In A Gumball Machine: Is This The Most Sexist Ad For Online Dating Ever?

We know it’s, like, a law that beer and fast food commercials use offensive, usually sexist, stereotypes about chicks and dudes … but online dating sites? This “Femme-o-matic” commercial for Belgian dating site Vind een Lief is confusing, but the basic premise seems to be that online dating is just like ordering up a hot blonde from a gumball machine. Because us ladies all so interchangeable, you know, and men don’t care about anything more than our looks! With all the blonde women lying around in kiddie pools and washing cars in short shorts, you’d think Vind een Lief would want people to believe it’s an escort service. But hey, maybe something got lost in translation. (Imagery NSFW, although naughty language is subtitled.) [Copyranter] Keep reading »
