Some people are still embarrassed to buy condoms. Gasp! How dare anyone know they have safe sex? To make purchasing and carrying condoms more discreet, Trojan brand condoms has created the Trojan 2GO, a pocket-sized package that contains two condoms. The hard plastic package makes it safe to stow condoms anywhere, even that abyss of a pocketbook you carry around, and the package can be snapped in two secure pieces so you can use the condoms individually or share with a friend. The Trojan 2GO is also the first condom you can find at the cash counter instead of at the back of the store. It comes in a choice of “Her Pleasure” or “Ultra Thin.” Check out the Trojan 2GO in action in Cobra Starship‘s “Good Girls Go Bad” video, starring Leighton Meester. Keep reading »
Sarah Jessica Parker looks a lot like Bette Midler as she films a scene for “Sex and the City 2.” Please tell me Patricia Field isn’t trying to bring back clear plastic handbags. That trend hasn’t been buried long enough. [NYC, 9/1/09] Keep reading »
I’m a Pisces (2/21/91) and my boyfriend of seven months is a Scorpio (11/14/86). I need help trying to fix this relationship. Ever since May our relationship started to change — he calls and visits less, we argue often, and he spends more time with his friends than he does with me. Now we’re on break. I really care about him and we’ve had some great times. How do I fix it? I’ve spoken to him about this, but to no avail. – Panicked Pisces Keep reading »
Popular Indonesian salon and beauty school franchise Johnny Andrean wanted to get the word out about their new hair strengthening product. A simple television commercial or billboard ad was not enough. Instead, they opted for a more literal display: hanging what appears to be human hair ponytails on commuter trains in the capital of Jakarta. Besides being strong enough to keep commuters from falling during the average train ride (as illustrated by the picture above), the ponytails were decorated with a product card which told riders more about Andrean and the strengthening cream. Judging from the photo, the oddest part isn’t the marketing tactic itself, but how totally blasé subway riders seem about holding on to a random ponytail. Clever or creepy?

Last night I finally got around to watching “Youth Knows No Pain,” a new HBO documentary which aired on Monday night. The film is directed by Mitch McCabe, the daughter of a plastic surgeon, who has been obsessed with anti-aging treatments and products since she was little. Through interviews with various cosmetic surgery
and beauty addicts, she explores our country’s obsession with never growing old. She puts her own weaknesses bravely on display and gets some seriously juicy and fascinating perspectives out of her incredible cast of “characters.” These include “lifecasters” Julia Allison
and Mary Rambin
, who are fond of fillers and Botox
and come off as bratty and vapid; Allure
Editor-In-Chief Linda Wells, who admits that her magazine pushes beauty products that don’t necessarily work
but still make people “feel good”; Norman Deesing, who has spent more than 50K trying to look like Jack Nicholson; Erica Rose, a former contestant on “The Bachelor,”
who is also the daughter of a plastic surgeon; and Sherry McCabe, featured in the clip above, who used to be obese. After she got gastric bypass and dropped a ton of pounds, Sherry got her whole face, tummy, and boobs done in an effort to look young and hot. She is pure sad amazingness. Check out the clip above and watch the full documentary, which is both eye-opening and entertaining, on HBO. [HBO: Youth Knows No Pain

Being a girl who likes to get her party on from time to time, I am no stranger to the painful head-throbbing of a hangover. And catching a glimpse of my messy hair and exhausted face in the mirror on the way to make coffee doesn’t make things any better. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Along with drinking gallons of water, the newest hangover cure to hit the streets is: asparagus. That’s right. A new study shows that eating the green veggie (more commonly known for making your pee and, ahem, other substances smell unpleasant) the day after your booze-fest can help ease hangover pain. South Korean researchers found the acids in asparagus help protect your liver from toxins. [Health]
While the vitamin-packed vegetable is a surprising hangover fix, it’s not the weirdest. Here are a few more “alternative” hangover remedies people have tried the morning after.

So, who out there has ever had to layer a tank top under, say, a DVF wrap dress in order to remain “covered”? Or have you ever felt nekkid wearing a strapless dress to work, so you threw on a tee underneath? Or a cardi on top? Don’t know about you, but my hand is raised way up in the air. Why is it that chic dresses sometimes just leave us feeling a little too exposed?
Luckily, I just found an awesome solution. Keep reading »
There are some words and phrases that we here at The Frisky are so over hearing that whenever one of us utters one, someone else says, “Can we retire that word yet?” So far we haven’t been successful in coaxing any of the words into a condo in Boca Raton to live out their Golden Years in relative silence. But maybe if we all work together, we can limit their appearance in everyday speech. After the jump, words and phrases we’re ready to see retire! Keep reading »
The Vanity Fair “Me and Mrs. Palin” article by Levi Johnston—which he appears to not have “written” so much as dictated to the editors—is the juiciest, gooeyiest, gossipiest smear I’ve ever sunk my teeth into. Did you know Sarah Palin wanted her and the First Dude to secretly adopt Bristol and Levi’s baby, Tripp, so no one would know her teen daughter had been pregnant?!?! Or that Cindy McCain offered to let Bristol and Levi marry at the White House if McCain won?!?! Allegedly.
But beneath all the gossip that supports the theory that, yes, these chuckleheads and their hunting gear are just as ridic as we’ve always thought they were, Levi (and the Vanity Fair editors who approved his piece) tells another story: Sarah Palin is a bad mother and wife. As much as I dislike the Alaskan ex-governor’s character as a politician, that particular story is not one that’s fair to tell. Keep reading »
