Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
According to an article in the Telegraph today, research suggests that ugly men are more likely than attractive ones to get their mates knocked up. The theory is based on behavior in the animal kingdom where “the most desirable males restrict their ‘sperm load’ with each mating to ensure enough to go around.” Scientists are researching whether the same is true for humans, and if it is, women who want a baby may be wise to avoid the hotties. “Males with the opportunity to mate with a lot of females would be likely to produce less sperm on each occasion than those making fewer sexual conquests.” The researchers’ theory that hot guys have smaller sperm loads is based on the idea they’re the ones with the highest sexual conquests. In my experience and years of gossiping with friends and observing the behavior of people around me, that certainly doesn’t seem to be the case. What do you think? Are hot guys getting laid the most?

Sacha Baron Cohen has never been known as one to tread lightly on delicate issues such as race, religion or sexuality, and the newly released “Bruno” proves no exception. Playing Bruno, a dopey gay Austrian fashion commentator and overall clown, Cohen faces (or more accurately flings himself and awkwardly tackles) controversy on all fronts. Knowing that reactions to the highly anticipated film would be strong, we at The Frisky decided to stay up late and attend the opening night midnight showing and get firsthand reactions from audience members. Staying up was easy, but recovering from our shock and regaining the ability to speak after the barrage of awkward and uncomfortable comedy was another matter entirely. What people thought of the movie, after the jump. Keep reading »
Kris Saknussemm, a sex researcher of 20 years, has been studying sexual fetishes his entire career. “Long past the investigation of shoes, pain, vomit and rubbing up against people on the subway,” Saknussemm has made some “delightful anomalies” over the years, as you might imagine. He has published a list on Nerve of his ten favorite fetishes. Did peegasms make the list? Find out after the jump! Keep reading »
My favorite jewelry designer — well, except for Tiffany, of course — is Shaun Leane, the man behind some of the most outrageous jewelry and accessories that you may have seen being worn on the runway by Alexander McQueen models. On the W blog, there’s a new fast and dirty interview with the British jewelry designer in which he talks about making the silver armor hand piece that you see here for fashion icon Daphne Guinness, how long it takes to make a coiled metal corset that a runway model can actually wear, and why his favorite McQueen show involved paint-spraying robots. My favorite Leane piece is this diamonds-and-thorns-encrusted black heart locket. It has a little window in the back that lets you put a tiny keepsake inside it. Now if only I had £7,800.00.

Hot on the heels of his sneaker design collaboration with Nike, Kanye West has debuted another one with Louis Vuitton. The collection, simply called, er, Kanye West for Louis Vuitton, features five distinct sneakers which range in colors from solid red to pastel shades. West mixed the usual suspects when it comes to sneaker materials like leather uppers and cotton laces with felt trimming. And while they might look like your standard sneaker, the signature Louis Vuitton logo on the soles and tongues let you know that these are luxury kicks. So does the price! The shoes, available at Louis Vuitton stores, cost between $840 and $1140 depending on the style. If your guy, really, really, really wanted these, would you buy them for him? It’s a recession, so I’m thinking I’d download the picture and frame it nicely for him instead. Keep reading »
I was so excited on Monday when Wes Hayden finally got the boot on Monday night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” after Jillian Harris finally realized he was “there for the wrong reasons” (drink, bitches!). And after Wes got the boot, he seemingly admitted that he did have a girlfriend, as had been suspected and hinted at all season. Well now that he’s off the show, Cowboy Wes is singing a different tune…
In an impossibly long (85 minutes!) podcast interview with Reality Steve — I only made it through, like, 75% of it — Wes covers a lot of ground. Much of what he discusses in the first half of the interview is related to Pilot Jake. To be honest, Wes seems pretty sincere, and given that I found Jake to be suspiciously fake himself, I might even believe him. Crazy, I know. One thing is for sure — I am VERY excited to see these two duke it out on “The Men Tell All.” Feel free to listen to the whole interview here, but after the jump, the 12 most interesting tidbits…
