Would You Date A Dude Who Lived With His Parents?

According to a new study, a third of men ages 20 to 40 still live with their ‘rents. One in four of those who have moved out still keep a fully furnished bedroom at their parents’ house just in case they are forced to find their way back to the nest. As for women, only one in five are living with their moms and dads. So much for the assumption that men are more independent than women…

Shun, Shag, Or Marry? The Superhero Movie Edition

Because we’ll never run out of excuses to root for men in leotards, we’re excited for the slew of superhero movies that are currently in the works. Last week, we swooned when we heard that Ryan Reynolds had been cast as the Green Lantern, everyone’s favorite super hero test pilot. “Thor” is also gearing up for filming, Natalie Portman will be appearing in it alongside Chris Hemsworth—Kirk’s hot dad in “Star Trek.” And then there’s “Iron Man 2.” Robert Downey Jr. assures us that the new flick will be sex-soaked. “We’re horny,” he said. “Not, like, can’t-bring-your-kids horny. Just… horny.” [I'm Not Obsessed]

So which of these super heroes should we Shun, Shag, or Marry? Keep reading »

A NY Times Wedding Announcement That Hits Close To Home

A little shout-out is in order to our own Wendy Atterberry, who married Andrew Condell on Friday. The twosome got an announcement written up in The New York Times today (which, um, also resulted in The Frisky’s first mention in the newspaper) and Times readers got a little insight into their love story. Of course, Frisky readers know it well. Wendy lived in Chicago, but a friend set her up on a date with a guy who lived in NYC. Things went so well that they started a long-distance relationship. Eventually, Wendy moved to NYC to be with Andrew, but planned on getting her own apartment. Instead … “We were so happy together, I never left.” They got engaged in February, and despite ominous weather reports and a last-minute flu, their wedding occurred under clear skies and without a hitch.

Yo, Dude! The Origins of Common Slang Words

Slang is defined as an informal nonstandard vocabulary composed typically of coinages, arbitrarily changed words, and extravagant, forced, or facetious figures of speech, according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary.

In other words, slang can be “a dope spin on a sick word that deserves props for being mad fly, yo.” Keep reading »

Role Reversal: Painting The Male Nude

“Do women have to be naked to get into U.S. museums? Less than 3% of the artists in the Met. Museum are women, but 83% of the nudes are female.” I have this hanging above my desk, compliments of a Guerrilla Girls’ ad. Artist Kristen Copham is responding to just this imbalance.

I spoke with Kristen today for the approximately 45 minutes it took her to paint my portrait – the 829th painting in a series of 1,000 that she hopes to complete by the end of this year. Kristen is the owner and director of the New York Studio Gallery, at the corner of Stanton and Suffolk in the LES. Just as she started painting me (I volunteered for her project), she began telling me about a series of male nudes that she is working on, saying “It’s my response to women being objectified.” Continue reading Keep reading »

Is Chris Brown Ready For Oprah?

With Chris Brown finally offering a public apology for letting his temper get the best of him and striking ex-girlfriend Rihanna, what’s the next stop on his “I’m Sorry” tour? Could it be a seat on Oprah Winfrey’s couch? That’s the word. It’s rumored that Chris Brown’s camp is in negotiations with The Oprah Winfrey Show about making an appearance on the Goddess of the Universe’s talk show. Only there’s one catch: Breezy doesn’t want to talk about the specifics of what happened between he and Rihanna the night he reportedly beat her. However, it seems Oprah’s people have popped back and made it clear that they don’t want anything on the table. With respect to all of you teeny boppers who throw your training bras at Chris in concert, it doesn’t compare to the power of Oprah’s legion of fans. If Chris wants to go back to pop locking for Doublemint gum, I’d sit on the couch, cry and let Oprah verbally spank me. Continue reading Keep reading »

Red Bull Backlash: “Slow Cow” Beverage

Slow Cow may look like one of those Red Bull-type energy drinks that line the shelves of America’s convenience stores, but it’s the exact opposite. The Canadian beverage claims to slow your roll via the a main ingredient, L-Theanine, an amino acid that relaxes, but doesn’t induce sleepiness. Slow Cow also claims that this miracle element reduces anxiety, clears your mind, and can even help symptoms of PMS. Americans, however, are so accustomed to the go, go, go of coffee culture that it’s difficult to imagine a trend of “mellow drinks.” After all, we can think of some, ahem, other things that do that for you.
