The top baby names in the U.S. for 2007 were released, and they’re rather traditional. Jacob topped the list for guys and Emily for girls, and a few on the list are even popular with celebs, check them out…

A Gawker tipster informs the website that if you go to your Facebook page, click on the search field, and then hit the down arrow key, a list of five people with appear. Who are those five people? So far, most people seem to be speculating that they are either the five people you search for/click on the most, the five people who search for/click on you the most, or the five most recent people you’ve clicked on. I tested the final theory by clicking on someone not in my five, but my list still didn’t change. That said, I kind of don’t want to believe that the people most obsessed with me on Facebook include a guy friend, two coworkers (Catherine and Emily — thanks gals), a guy I hooked up with years and years ago, and a random friend who I never talk to. That is depressing. Catherine’s five, on the other hand, is made up of three dudes she’s hooked up with, a guy we bowled against, and me. She is so pimp.
UPDATE: This little trick is no longer working. A Facebook insider told Gawker that the canned response from FB about this is: “The five friends that you see below the search box are populated based on people whom we think you’d be most interested in. Taking into account various factors, we attempt to make an educated guess as to who it is you’re looking for when you start typing a name in the search box. Please note that this information is only visible to you and will not be shared with your friends. We hope that this feature is helpful and we appreciate your feedback. Let me know if you have further questions.” Sorry, I call B.S. Why on earth would they conclude that this random chick I never talk to would be someone I’m most interested in? Keep reading »
According to our own Nookie Know-It-All as much as 75% of women cannot orgasms during intercourse, with 12% being unable to come, like, EVER. But it always amazes me that despite these statistics — which, I admit, do vary in number — men still seem to think they have no trouble getting ladies off in the sack. So, in honor of National Orgasm Month, I decided to poll the guys on my IM about how often they think they complete the deed and then was prepared to present them with the cold hard facts. But it turns out, they don’t really seem to be living in a dream world after all. Maybe they just feel so comfy with me (and The Frisky) that they don’t feel the need to pretend. Their responses, after the jump. Keep reading »
On Friday, May 30th, shoe stores will be empty, makeup counters customerless, salons won’t have a hair to do, and every man in America will be single for a few hours. It’s opening night of the Sex and the City movie! While looking at all the ads alone can increase your levels of estrogen, and thereby your need for a cosmo, what are the men to do when they have the whole world — sans movie theaters — in the palm of their hands?

The Gap has joined forces with the venerable Whitney Museum to design a line of t-shirts celebrating the Whitney Biennial. The t-shirt above is not from that collection — it’s from Uniqlo, a Japanese chain that’s similar to The Gap. See, the Gap t-shirts are retailing for $28, but Uniqlo’s line of T’s with influential artists is only $15.50 and, we think, so much cuter. [Uniqlo.com] Keep reading »
How often do you see a commercial for laundry detergent that depicts a father dealing with his son or daughter’s grass-stained clothes? By my calculations, you never do. And this isn’t helping get guys to do laundry or other household chores that are traditionally considered “women’s work.” Men are particularly influenced by the way TV commercials portray them, and 34 percent of them presented them engaged in work behavior, while just 2 percent showed them performing domestic tasks. Women, on the other hand, are least likely to be portrayed working outside the home — only 13.1 percent showed them this way, and 51.5 percent of commercials featuring women focused on selling home products, such as food and cleaners. It’s true that company’s do this for a reason. Women are still the ones buying most of these products. I’m hoping that as people get married later in life, men will start getting used to buying 409 and Clorox wipes and keep doing it when they get married. But then again, I’ve seen my guy friends’ apartments. They may own cleaning products, but they have yet to put them to use. [Newswise] Keep reading »
