Sex Sells, Just Not As Much As It Used To

We all enjoy indulging in a guilty pleasure. It might be a drink after work, hitting the slot machines, or perhaps, if you feel Frisky-ish, renting a porn. But in tough economic times, the industries considered to be recession proof, like sex, gambling and alcohol, are feeling the pinch just like everyone else. People are cutting back on extravagant pleasures in life, like their porn habits, lap dances, and shots of tequila. Even Playboy has been hit hard by the recession — their stock is down by 80% in the past year, they’ve cut jobs, closed their New York office, and canceled their Super Bowl party. Private Media Group, a porn company based in Barcelona, Spain, saw revenue drop in the third quarter. Rick’s Cabaret International, a chain of high-end strip clubs, also saw a decrease in earnings. No wonder Hustler magazine publisher, Larry Flynt, asked the government for a $5 million bailout for the porn industry. Other “vice” industries are taking a hit as well. Gambling in Las Vegas was down more than 6% from last year. Alcohol consumption is still going strong, but people are switching to cheap brands of liquor as opposed to premium brands. I guess we have to find other cheap ways to entertain ourselves now. This video is a start! [MSN: Money Central] Keep reading »

    The Sexiest Shows On Television

    Soft-core porn used to be reserved for pay-per-view channels like Skin-imax, but now it’s all over the boob tube!

Lucky for me and all you pervs out there, TV has gotten so meaty. Yeah, baby, we like it raw! Here are the top shows to watch, if you want to see some gratuitous soft-core sex scenes… Keep reading »

    Politically Incorrect: From Miley Cyrus To Mary Rambin

    In recent years, a bevy of celebrities — from A-list to Z-list — have been busted using language or behaving in a way that goes against typical societal notions of political correctness. And thanks to the Internet, everyone on the planet is the wiser. This week, a photograph of Miley Cyrus slanting her eyes in a mock-Asian gesture hit the web. Fans, haters, and the Asian-American community were on her instantly, demanding an apology. Suffice it to say, if you’re anywhere near the public eye, you have to be smart if you’re going to be offensive. Keep reading »

    There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best and taking pride in your appearance. But looking your best has been taken to a new extreme, as more people are opting to get cosmetic surgery and enhancements — after they’re dead. Morticians are getting an increase in requests in cosmetic procedures when it comes to how the the deceased will look like at the funeral. The requests have included lip plumping, smoothing wrinkles and even boosting sagging parts. People are making advanced arrangements for these final procedures to be done for the viewing at their funerals. Is it that serious? Keep reading »

    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 »
