I’ve lived in New York City for a little over 10 years. As any of the other writers for The Frisky can tell you (and have written about over and over), dating in this city isn’t as easy as a walk in Central Park. In a city of eight million people where the single women outnumber the single men by roughly 150,000, the stakes are high and the pickings slim. Having been out there floating in that sea for longer than I would have wished on most people, archenemies excluded, naturally I have found myself in sexual predicaments that, tragically, I probably won’t be forgetting anytime soon. Actually, there’s a very good chance I’ll never forget some of these scarring and haunting forays into the ridiculous. And because of this, I think the best way to deal is to share them with someone besides my therapist. Keep reading »
Two Knowles sisters are better than one! This weekend at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, Solange was joined on stage by big sister Beyonce and the two did a little dance routine straight out of their living room circa 1986. Trust that I am going to be watching this on repeat today until I get the steps down just right. [Spin]
As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to say RIP Society: French “YouTube comedian” (I know) Remi Baillard recently released a video called “Free Sex,” in which he’s filmed pretending to fuck unsuspecting women in public. Invariably, the women notice Baillard air-humping them and give him dirty looks. And this dumb shit actually has over five and a half million views.
Yes, that’s right. A sketch form of a rape joke — which I can only assume was inspired by “Austin Powers 3,” circa 2002? — got almost six million hits. I was one of those hits and not only did I not laugh, but I was transported back to 7th grade. You remember 7th grade? It’s a time when the 12-year-old boys were so tiresome and immature that merely walking in front of a group of them would make my eyes roll back into the base of my cerebellum. Keep reading »
I’m sure many fans of John Green’s book feel this way, but the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars is something I’m both very excited and nervous about. The book is so wonderful, so heartwrenching, so moving, it’s worrisome to think that the film could fall short in conveying and extracting those emotions, as book-to-movie adaptations often do. But by the looks of this clip, which debuted during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, I don’t have much to worry about. I enjoy Shailene Woodley as an actress and look forward to seeing how she takes on the role of cancer-stricken Hazel Grace, but it’s Ansel Elgort who completely steals this scene as the enigmatic Augustus. Elgort completely nails Gus’s amused, flirtatious, confident, philosophical vibe, and in just a quick 60 seconds, we see exactly why Hazel — and the book’s readers — can’t turn away. June 6 can’t get here soon enough.
From what I can tell, this moment was the only thing worth watching — over and over and over and over again — at last night’s MTV Movie Awards. Zac Efron can get it.
Aries (March 21-April 19): It’s going to be a nail-biter week, as all parts of your life converge into a moment that has you thinking about things in an utterly drastic way. Chances are there will be a lot of uneasiness to plow through this week, which will mean needing to maintain a resolute attitude. Remind yourself that you are the sign of victory and without one, there is no compromise.

After meeting internationally-known, award-winning boudoir photographer Angelica Roberts at this year’s Lingerie Fashion Week, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pick her brain about her job and learn more about what’s involved in a boudoir shoot. What if I’m bloated from my period? Can you make me look slimmer? How do I prepare for a shoot? Angelica, whose work has been featured in “Vogue,” was happy to answer all of our burning questions about boudoir sessions— just in time for me to DO ONE! I’m super excited to work with Angelica, and I’ll obviously be writing about (and maybe if you’re lucky, sharing pictures from) my first boudoir experience on The Frisky, but until then, check out what she had to say to see if a boudoir shoot is for you. (Psst … it is!) Keep reading »
Illustrator Cindy Suen has taught us how to read our cats’ body language with her cute cartoons. But now we’ve been gifted with a live-action counterpart with real cats! Jeff Wysaski of Pleated Jeans has created his own funny take on what our cats might be thinking, and it’s a bit more close to home than we cat owners would probably like to admit. Your cat just might be a devious schemer on the inside. [Laughing Squid]
