(Another) Quote Of The Day: The Dalai Lama Is Not Afraid To Use The F-Word

“I call myself a feminist. Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights? We all come from the same mother. That creates the basis for compassion.”

I Like Big Butt Jeans And I Cannot Lie

We’ve seen the grab-able booty wrought by Huit lingerie’s padded butt panties. But never before have we seen denim that claims to give you a more voluptuous tush just from the fabric alone! Behold: Innovativa push-up jeans. They promise Beyoncé’s booty at only $99 a pop! The Innovativa site sells lots of different cute, tight pairs of jeans, each looking more liable to cut off circulation to your legs than the last. We’re wondering, though, if there’s not padding in the seat of those pants? Does the fabric just cantilever your butt up in order to make the cheeks look perkier? But how can a lady sit without ripping anything? Vaguely terrifying. True, this array of be-denimed butts is infinitely enticingly spankable, but if you want a badonkadonk, ladies, I’ve got a better idea. Just come ’round The Frisky office and I will generously offer to trade asses with you! [Guanabee] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Mama Phillips Isn’t Buying Mackenzie’s Confession

“John was a bad parent, and a drug addict. But f**king his daughter? If she thinks it’s true, why isn’t she with a good psychiatrist on a couch? I think it’s unconscionable that Oprah would let her do her show. I have every reason to believe it’s untrue. Oprah should be more judicious about who she has on her show.”

The Swedish Military Battles Burning Bras

Think Swedish women are all singer/songwriter softies? Hardly! Under that tuft of natural blond hair and alabaster skin lurk indomitable boobies. For the past 20 years, ladies who’ve enlisted in the Swedish military have found their regulation bras frequently pop off and catch fire — seriously. Apparently, when they’re training rigorously, the bras start burning and then melt into their skin. And we thought underwire was rough! Needless to say, this regulation equipment has forced their bravest gals to strip off their gear and clothes to cool of their fire-scorched flesh. Finally, after two decades, someone has listened to their screams. Keep reading »

Dudes Can’t Wait To Get Their Legs In Mantyhose!

“This winter the city’s most stylish men will have a secret weapon hidden in their trousers.”

No, no, no, get your mind out of the gutter, kids! That’s David Walker-Smith, the director of menswear and beauty of the famous London department store Selfridges, commenting on the fact that the huge (ha) new craze amongst British men is to wear tights (over their knickers and under their trousers) to keep their legs feeling warm and looking trim. In fact, demand for mantyhose has skyrocketed to the point where they’ve developed a line of them by lingerie brand Unconditional that are strong enough for a man at “a tough 120 denier thickness,” whatever the hell that means. And now dudes will get a taste of how expensive ladies’ “accessories” can be, as each pair costs a whopping $114. (REALLY!?) Hey, supply and demand folks, supply and demand. Those dudes must be seriously wanting to get their tights on. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Bill Clinton (And Gender Equality!) Makes Us Swoon
