While we here at The Frisky, from our experienced Mind of Man to the freshly single gal Amelia, have been debating the merits of sex on a first date, some researchers in the U.K. think they’ve got it down to a science.
According to a mathematical model created by Prof. Robert Seymour and his team from the University College London, “By delaying mating, the female is able to reduce the chance that she will mate with a bad male.” Basically Prof. Seymour is telling you that you have to make a man wait for sex to prove his worth. This study was less interested in studs and more interested in helping women find something called a “good male.” Using other Discovery Channel-esque language like “long courtship” and “mating,” the researchers have made even sex seem unsexy. From charts, graphs and funding, Seymour has concluded that, “Long courtship is a price paid for increasing the chance that mating, if it occurs, will be a harmonious match which benefits both sexes. This may help to explain the commonly held belief that a woman is best advised not to sleep with a man on a first date.” So, let me get this equation straight. W (courtship length) times X (doin’ it), equals Y (compatibility)?! Keep reading »
We’re pretty used to men’s magazines and media outlets celebrating the world’s most beautiful women — from Maxim‘s Hot 100 to AskMen.com’s upcoming Top 99 Most Desirable Women — but Spike.com has decided to go with a much more negative approach. In “The Top 7 Butterbodies,” everyone from Mandy Moore to America Ferrera to Salma FREAKING Hayek is called out for having “a beautiful face but a body that’s gone to butter.” I’m so effing serious. More, after the jump… Keep reading »
H Samuel, a jeweler in the U.K., is trying to get male engagement rings to take off as more women are proposing to men in these modern times. Their Tioro ring, made from titanium and featuring a tiny diamond, goes for about $120, which is waaaaaaay cheaper than most engagement rings for women. “UK women are no longer waiting until the man pops the question,” said an H Samuel employee. “We are equals in the work place and in relationships and we make our own decisions. Now this ring is a clear message to everyone that a man is to be married.” Do you think a woman who proposes should offer her man a ring? [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

On Inauguration Day, Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts to celebrate “freedom of choice.” Ruh-roh. CHOICE. Naturally, pro-life activists are flipping out over that choice of phrase and are calling the move an endorsement of abortion. Mmm, abortion donuts. Seriously can the pro-life community get worked up over something that would truly help curb abortions, like making sure everyone has easy access to birth control and is educated about safe sex? ‘Cause I’d like them to keep their paws off my body AND my breakfast, thank you.
