Do You Harbor A Secret Fantasy Of Becoming An Escort?

Call girls: they’re talented writers! First there was Dr. Brooke Magnanti, whose identity only became known after her blog, Diary of a London Call Girl, became wildly famous and spawned a book and TV series. Now there’s an anonymous East Coast-based woman going by the nom de plume “Charlotte Shane.”

“Charlotte Shane” pens a blog called Nightmare Brunette about her experiences in sex work. In a stellar piece on Salon.com, “Charlotte” explains she tries her hardest not to glamorize prostitution like Hollywood. “I never intend to glamorize my profession, and I don’t list expensive gifts I receive or lavish items I buy for myself,” she wrote. “I avoid rhapsodizing about exotic vacations or name-dropping hotels. I never disclose my rates and I don’t claim every encounter ends in mind-blowing orgasms — or any orgasm at all. That type of sensationalistic hype is really only good for selling books or selling face time on TV shows, neither of which I’m interested in.” She tries to be honest about what working as an escort really is: a job.

Cutesy Pink Infographic Patronizes Women In Tech (Yet Again)

Click here to see full image.

“Infographics” are the big buzzwords on blogs. They’re funny! They’re brightly colored! They go viral! Even when they go viral for the wrong reasons ’cause they’re sexist and offensive! Yesterday, an infographic called “Which Female Tech Influencer Are You?” from something called WPromote hit the web. Following the chart and answering questions like, “Which hairstyle do you prefer?”, “White wine or tequila with worm?” and “Who is your dream man?” you find out which well-known woman in tech you most resemble. Your options are Marissa Mayer, Google VP; Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook; Natalie Messenet, founder of Net-A-Porter; Caroline McCarthy, tech writer for CNet,com; and Sarah Evans, a PR pro.

Something tells me the COO of Facebook and a VP at Google have more on their mind than their “dream man” or their favorite type of footwear. Keep reading »

8 Celebrities Dish On Their Dry Spells

Nadya Suleman is taking issue with the claim that she made a fetish porno where she whips a man in a diaper. Apparently, the video isn’t actually X-rated. She tells TMZ it’s a spoof she made with a friend. “It was supposed to be a ha ha to that industry,” she said in her weird high-pitched, fast-talking voice. But then she dropped an even more fascinating piece of information—she says she hasn’t had sex in 11 years. “The biggest irony of all this disgustingness is that I have been celibate for 11 years,” she said. “I haven’t even kissed anyone in 11 years. What the heck?” [TMZ]

OctoMom isn’t the only celebrity to open up about a dry spell. After the jump, more stars talk about their sexless streaks.

Ryan Gosling + Orphans + Dancing = Dying Inside


Look, it’s not like I want to be posting Ryan Gosling videos every day — they just keep appearing and it’s my duty as his unofficial fan club president/lover to present them to you. In this clip, also from his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week, Ryan shows footage he shot in Africa — for a documentary I believe — featuring a group of orphan children dancing to Rihanna’s “Rude Boy.” One girl in particular caught his eye with her “wildly unique” dance moves. I am also impressed and really think this cutie needs to be on “Toddlers & Tiaras,” stat. She would completely smoke the competition. Ryan, on the other hand, needs to rehearse a little more.

Which Reality Star Is Also A Kinda Talented Artist?

It’s always fun to peek back into the lives of reality TV stars and see what they were like before they were famous. Er, “famous.” One reality star — whom we’re a big fan of here at The Frisky — was a student at the New York Institute for Technology and posted a dozen of his or her art projects online. There are paintings, still lifes, human figures, and sketches. Some of it’s quite good!

Can you guess who the reality star can be? Hint: on last night’s show, this person bailed their best friend out of jail. Keep reading »

Shopping Guide: 10 Super Cozy Double-Breasted Cardigans

double breasted cardis g1 jpg
Well, we’ve reached mid-January, or as I like to call it, “The time of the year I seriously question my decision to move to New York from sunny California where the temperatures rarely dip below 55 degrees.” I’m cold. I like to meditate on the imaginary feeling of the sun warming my bare shoulders. It took me years of living on the East Coast to actually understand the concept of layering, but I’m still angered by any season that would cause my bare toes to freeze and fall off. New York City, I love you, but winter can go to hell and stay there.

If winter did go to hell, there would be a couple things I would miss, of course. Fresh snow. Good hair (it stays stick straight this time of year). And cozy, comfy, warm knit sweaters. For this slideshow, I compiled 10 double-breasted cardigans at various price points — I love their old man vibe. Dress them up at night with a flouncy dress, tights, and heels, or dress them down on the weekends with jeans, hoop earrings, and a T. I’m feeling warmer already.
