Politics aside, I think Barack and Michelle Obama are the cutest couple on the campaign trail (though John and Elizabeth Edwards were pretty sweet too) — here’s a video clip of Michelle describing how and why she fell for the Presidential candidate. It’s nice to see that even in the middle of a tough campaign, with all that mud-slinging and sleepless hours on the road, a couple like them still seems so in love. [You Tube] Keep reading »
After nine years at Brooklyn’s New York Methodist Hospital, OBGYN Josine Veca has seen it all. Here she gives The Frisky her diagnosis of what women want when they stop by.
What are common concerns for women when they come to see you?
It varies by age group. Younger patients, 30 and below, are usually concerned with STDs, birth control, or, if not, trying to prevent pregnancy. As the women get older and are approaching menopause, they’re worried about hot flashes, irregular periods, and symptoms that may be unusual. I’d estimate that 30 to 40 percent are concerned with a mixture of those issues.
How much prying do you have to do or do most women come in with their own specific questions?
A lot of women who come in with their own questions are very comfortable talking about sex. But if they don’t, the subject usually comes up when I’m interviewing them. At first they may be tentative, but the idea is to open communication

Sick of your spouse, but your bank account is worse off than you are? No problemo! Youâ€™ve got a couple more hours to apply for WKLC Rock 105â€™s divorce give away. One lucky couple will get a trip to Splitsville for free from West Virginian attorney Rusty Webb. Jay Nunley, the sympathetic scrooge of Valentineâ€™s Day and smart station programming director, said about the promotion, â€œSure we can give away concert tickets, and we do. That’s going to make you happy for a little while. This is the chance to make someone happy for the rest of their life.â€ To qualify for the un-”I doâ€™s”, just fill out this form and then tune-in for the divorce drawing at 5pm. Good luck dumping the douche! But if you don’t win, perhaps you could give your worse half a box of crappy worm-filled chocolates for Valentineâ€™s Day. That oughta get the job done. [Yahoo!

Do you remember what was playing when you lost your virginity? Someone at The Frisky lost hers to Willie Nelson [Oh, heck, it was me. -- Editor], which is an interesting choice, no? Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan lost his to Warrant’s “Cherry Pie,” and Cobra Starship’s Ryland Blackinton was listening to the Home Improvement theme song. In a Virgin Mobile survey, 25 percent chose “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as the best song to lose your virginity to, which is just too sweet. But, like, how many guys have that in their iTunes? That song beat out “Feels Like the First Time” by Foreigner, “Like a Virgin” by Madonna, and “Give It To Me” by Timbaland. Basically, those choices make us want to vomit, they’re so clichÃ©.
Two other interesting, unrelated pieces of information:
The View co-host Sherri Shepherd has her phone set to play Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable” or Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” when her ex calls, and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi’s phone plays Rihanna’s “Umbrella” whenever his boyfriend calls. [PR Newswire] Keep reading »
Admit it — we’ve all done something we’re not proud of. Maybe you’ve never said it out loud, but we all have the capacity to be cruel. The Bad Girlfriend is a friend of ours who we love for being trustworthy and smart, funny and exceedingly loyal…to her girlfriends, that is. But boyfriends? That’s another story. We pity the fools who end up on her arm — give it a few months, a year, even three, and suddenly they won’t know what hit ‘em. We don’t expect you to love her, but we do expect that you may, begrudgingly, see a bit of yourself in her bad deeds.
I admit it; I’m a bad girlfriend. I’ve lied, cheated, and stolen from my boyfriends. Still, I always learn a valuable lesson after each new breakup. Keep reading »
