You just woke up. There are your four-inch heels. There’s the glittery halter top you wore last night. There’s that cute guy. There’s your eye makeup smudged all over his pillow. And there’s his mirror.
Oh, no. Oh, no, oh no, oh no.
Enter the Walk of Shame Kit: a clean pair of lacy panties, sunglasses, a hair tie, a hairbrush, a hand-held mirror and a pen (with which to leave your number!). The goodies are tucked into a tiny clutch that fits easily inside your purse. Salvation for us girls for whom popping a breath mint and running fingers through our bedhead constitute morning-after-grooming. You’re on your own figuring out where you put your car keys, though.

It was only a matter of time before people started trying to make money off of “Gossip Girl.” A New York City company that hosts “Sex and the City” bus tours has added a “Gossip Girl” outing to its offerings. For $40, you can visit the Palace Hotel, see the mansion where Lily and Bart got married, shop at Bendel’s, and get “spotted by that most ubiquitous blogger.” A complete list of locations isn’t included, but it doesn’t look like the tour visits Rufus’s Williamsburg gallery or Vanessa’s coffee shop. Just like on the show, Brooklyn gets marginalized. How authentic! [via Cityfile] Keep reading »
If there’s one thing I’ve learned writing these columns, it’s that you ladies have penis on the brain. Which is why I’m going to admit that my penis is so huge, so gargantuan, that when I get excited, I barely have enough skin with which to whistle. Seriously. It’s like three grapefruits in a gym sock. Trash bags are my preferred prophylactic. I ain’t bragging or nothin’.
Does size really matter? How do you know your vagina isn’t all floppy? I knew a dude once who described sleeping with a woman as “driving a hatchback through the Lincoln Tunnel.” I am convinced y’all make so much of a fuss about size as a passive-aggressive way to get back at dudes who you perceive as judging you solely by your boobs, waist, and butt. But when it comes to sex, good sex, bite-mark-on-the-shoulder sex, we are the sum of our physical, and emotional, parts. Otherwise, you’re not having sex. You’re just slapping bits. Keep reading »
The Daily Mail is hardly a bastion of great journalism, and their coverage of women’s issues is usually pretty terrible. So, it should come as no surprise that they devoted an entire column comparing the looks of Nicole Kidman to those of her sister Antonia. Antonia, you see, is three years younger than Nicole, but the rag thinks she has such a severe case of old face that she looks way more mature than her super famous sister.
“…what a world of difference the Hollywood lifestyle appears to make. Looking at these pictures of Nicole and Antonia Kidman, you could be forgiven for mistaking which was the older sibling… Smiling, the skin around her eyes and mouth bore the laughter lines typical of a woman nearing 40. How galling that her older sister has passed that age milestone, but still looks younger.”
Maybe because she (allegedly) has a face full of Botox? Seriously, Daily Mail, you paid someone to write this? Someone so clearly ashamed of their assignment that they wouldn’t even put their byline on it? [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
Steve Urkel would have you thinking that he was pretty much born with suspenders and thick-rimmed glasses. Yet, the truth is, nerd style, like the disheveled hipster look, is carefully cultivated. Now, there’s NerdBoyfriend.com, a website that features pictures of dorky (yet famous) dudes, along with style suggestions on how to get those looks.
We know your guy’s been lusting after Steve Martin’s camel hair blazer and Bob Dylan’s glasses. He need look no further. You’ll find looks for well-knowns like George Harrison, Christopher Walken, and the band Kraftwerk. Mostly, we’re loving the site for the photos. Keep talking nerdy to us.

Forever 21 will debut a plus-size collection in May called Faith 21. Us Weekly dished on Faith 21 in a recent issue, but the mag misleadingly connected Kim Kardashian to the new line.
Here’s a little faith for fuller-figured fashionistas: On May 1, they can try on a new plus-size line, Faith 21, from hip bargain chain Forever 21 (Kim Kardashian is a fan). “It’s for a curvier girl that loves fashion,” marketing manager Linda Chang tells Us of the knit and woven tops, dresses and jeans, ranging in size from XL to 2XL and all priced at less than $31.

For long distance couples who rely on ancient technology like telephones and webcams to keep the spark alive across the miles, there’s a new device that might make reaching out and touching each other a little more fulfilling. A Scotland-based technology lab has created a prototype of a device they’re calling Mutsugoto, which “allows couples, who are separated by distance, to draw in light on each other’s bodies or beds.” Designed to give couples an “alternative to text and e-mail massaging,” couples lie on their beds, miles away from each other, and wear touch-activated rings visible to a camera mounted above their beds. A computer inside the camera tracks the movements of their rings, then transmits and projects those strokes as beams of light onto their partner’s body. So, if you want to stroke your partner between the legs, you’d have to stroke yourself between your legs in order for the light to be transmitted and projected onto your partner where you want it. The creators of Mutsugoto (what’s with that name, anyway?) are looking for three long-distance couples located in Scotland to try out the prototype. So, if that’s you, and the idea of strategically-flashed beams of light stroking your body turns you on, give them a ring. [BBC.co.uk] Keep reading »

Happy Earth Day! In honor of our dear Mother Earth, here are a bunch of hot guys who not only work tirelessly to save her from the ravaging effects of global warming and pollution, but look good doing it. We’d gladly go hiking and eat granola bars with them, so long as they left the Birkenstocks at home.
Locks have long been a symbol of never-ending love. Earlier this month, Frisky reader Charlotte told us about the tradition of couples attaching locks to the Uzupis Bridge in Lithuania and throwing the key in the river below to show they’re stuck with one another forever, and that country isn’t the only one with such a tradition.
In Italy, lucchetti attached to bridges, gates, and barricades have become a bit of a problem. In 2004, after a film showed lovers hooking a padlock on the Milvian Bridge in Rome and throwing the key into the Tiber, the craze took off there and in Florence. It got so out of control that a lamp post almost fell off the Milvian because it was so weighted down with locks. A few years ago in Florence, the city had to remove about 5,500 padlocks from the Ponte Vecchio bridge railing and instituted a $65 fine for attaching new locks. Still, workers couldn’t remove the locks fast enough. Keep reading »
