Study Finds Scars Make Men Sexier

While my Jewish grandmother could probably give you a bunch of different reasons why I’m still single, researchers from the Universities of Liverpool and Stirling think they’ve solved my problem. Last week, The Frisky’s resident cutie pie, Catherine, asked us to confess what turns us on. Here’s what I admitted:

“I love a man with scars, especially from acne. I can’t explain the attraction. Sometimes I have to ask myself: ‘Am I into this guy or am I just hot for his acne scars?”

It’s true. My friends tease me like I’m some sort of scar-fetishist because I always go for dudes with “damage.” To them I say the old Apple Jack’s slogan, “Hey, we eat what we like!” I like me a face full of scars and apparently I’m not alone…. Keep reading »

    Giving Birth To Twins Would Streamline Your Life

    When we heard about a new procedure that can check a fertilized egg’s viability before it’s implanted, we thought there might be fewer multiple births in the future. Well, it’s not looking that way. Apparently women, especially career-oriented ones, are hoping more than one egg will take when they get in vitro, so they can get more than one pregnancy and child birth over with at the same time. An article in Page Six Magazine this weekend included interviews with mothers who happily gave birth to twins. After the jump, a few of our favorite quotes from ladies who loved getting “two for the price of one.”

    Mother Of 14 Sees Dollar Signs In Her Octuplets’ Eyes

    As you’ve probably already read, Nadya Suleman, the 33-year-old woman who gave birth to octuplets last week, already has six kids also conceived via in-vitro fertilization, bringing grand total of mouths-to-feed to 14. This revelation has caused a ton of controversy, as Suleman has been described by her own mother as “obsessed with having children since she was a teenager.” Suleman, apparently, has no interest in getting marriage and the paternity of all the children is unknown, though some believe she used a sperm donation from a friend. Suleman was unable to conceive naturally and her last relationship was before the birth of her first child. Additionally, there is speculation that Suleman lied to her doctor in order to be allowed to have her last four frozen embryos be planted. The four became eight due to her hyperstimulated reproductive system, but when doctors discovered that she was carrying seven babies (the eight was a delivery room surprise!), they asked if she would abort any of the fetuses. She refused. According to doctors, “in choosing to carry all eight to term, Ms. Suleman ignored guidelines, risking both their health and her own.” Needless to say, but this bitch is CRAZY.

    Super Bowl Porn: Who’s To Blame?

    Comcast Cable customers in Tuscon, Arizona got to watch more than the Pittsburgh Steelers winning yesterday’s game. Right after the Arizona Cardinals took the lead in the 4th quarter, the game action was replaced by a clip from a porn for 10 seconds and showed a woman pulling a man’s penis out of his pants. Comcast is doing a full investigation to figure out how this happened, but I think I have a list of possible suspects. After the jump, the five possible culprits behind the porn prank… Keep reading »

    10 Chick Flick Cliches That Are NOT In “He’s Just Not That Into You”

    You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book — I don’t know, I didn’t read it — but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love Ginnifer Goodwin; I also have been known to stare at a cell phone for over an hour, willing it to ring (with a call from a guy I totally love); I also have spent many, many years making crap excuses for bad boy behavior because I just didn’t want to recognize that maybe he was either A) a douche or B) a perfectly fine who was just not that into me. Am I betraying women everywhere for admitting to that? I don’t think so. Anyway, in the hilarious video above, the male stars of the film explain the 10 Chick Flick Cliches that are NOT in this particular chick flick. So you could technically maybe bring a dude to it. Only I wouldn’t, if you ever want to hear from him again. Keep reading »

    Apparently it’s not enough just to get a bikini wax anymore. No, now you have to adorn your lady parts. Completely Bare Spas are now offering their Opulent Bikini Wax at their six locations.

    Forget Significant Others, Give Yourself A Valentine’s Day Present

    Valentine’s Day is mere weeks away, and if you’re in a relationship, don’t expect to get much in the way of presents. A study found that couples are expected to spend nearly 17 percent less on gifts and Valentine’s Day merchandise compared with 2008, or an average of $102.50. With skimpy Valentine’s Day gifts expected among couples, it’s not a bad time to be single. You don’t need to waste your hard-earned cash on a nice present when you might not get something of equal value (or anything you like) in return. You don’t have to spend money on new lingerie, sexy dresses, or bikini waxes. And you don’t have to throw away dough on sex toys, teddy bears holding roses, or boxes of chocolates. Why don’t you celebrate yourself and take the $102.50 or whatever amount you would have used to buy a present and buy yourself something you like. Not only have you been saving money by not being in a relationship, but we buy ourselves the best presents anyway. Keep reading »
