Knowd: Simply Irresistible
Girls making out, faux lesbianism, Girls Gone Wild spectacles are kind of de rigeur it seems like, but it’s harder than you’d think to find actual songs about girls hooking up that aren’t written by lesbian musicians like The Indigo Girls. I delved deep into the interweb in search of the most salacious lyrics about ladies being hot for other ladies. The top five starts off with:
5. “I kissed a girl/Her lips were sweet/She was just like kissing me/Kissed a girl won’t change the world/But I’m so glad/I kissed a girl!” — Jill Sobule, “Kissed A Girl”
Was this pre-Girls Gone Wild? I’m not sure, but either way, the song is rather carefree and fun, though I swear I cannot tell Jill from her mid-90s counterparts Tracy Bonham and Joan Osbourne. Anyway, is kissing a girl really like making out with yourself? I don’t think so. My one experience kissing a girl was terrible though, so what do I know?
This week, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers will vote on two key proposals. If passed, the first would allow the use of non-Latin characters, i.e., domain names using Chinese, Arabic, or Cyrillic letters. The second proposal would open up the .com, .org, .fr world up to things like .sex. This internet thing could get a whole lot more interesting pretty soon.

60 Minutes reporter (and former swimsuit model) Lara Logan supposedly had two relationships while covering the Iraq war, and one was with a married man. Joe Burkett’s wife is claiming that Lara seduced him and has also teamed up with Joe to try to take away their 3-year-old daughter. AND, there are people saying Burkett once defended Lara’s honor in a fight with CNN war reporter Michael Ware. Angelina Jolie will play the role of Lara Logan in an upcoming film (we’re speculating).

Women have had to break through some employment barriers over the years, and men still dominate in many sectors. But there is one area that men haven’t been able to crack: studying female-exclusive aspects of various cultures. Robert M. Baum, a University of Missouri religion professor who has done extensive fieldwork in the Diola community in Senegal, hasn’t been able to learn about or enter the primary women’s fertility shrine there, as its only accessible to women who have given birth. “[A powerful female religious leader] told me that the day I give birth to a child, I should come to her and she would explain everything about Ehugna,” Baum said. “That night, I dreamed I was pregnant. I told her about the dream; she laughed and said it was not good enough.” [EurekAlert!] Keep reading »
When I was in college, I had a gay boyfriend. No, he wasn’t my queeny bestie who helped me match my purse with my shoes and went clubbing with me; he was my actual boyfriend—we had sex, I met his parents, the whole deal. To be fair, I didn’t know he was gay. He didn’t act like it, and even though all of his best friends were campy and out ‘n’ proud, I just thought he was an enlightened dude who didn’t care about their sexual orientation. I knew his gay best friend was in love with him, and hated me because we were dating, but I was secure enough to just deal with it and all the bitchy glares he threw my way whenever I showed up at bars or parties. This went on for about a year, and while the GB and I had a somewhat rocky relationship, I ultimately thought we were in love, and really, quite the adorable couple. Keep reading »

Question: This weekend I slept with one of my buddy’s good friends. I haven’t told him yet. He told me she was bad news and I should stay away, but clearly I didn’t listen. I am not really sure how to tell him that I smeared his friend six ways from Sunday without damaging the friendship. What does The Frisky say? Do I reveal my sextivity to him or try and keep it under raps? Clearly I feel guilty…Help! — Sneaking Around, via email
The Frisky’s Answer: Umm, why does the dude care who you sleep with? Is she an ex-girlfriend? Someone he wants to get with? Because if not, it makes zero sense why he would give a crap that you “smeared her” unless of course he would just be weirded out that you hid the juicy details. Anyway, if you really think your friend needs to know, tell him, but don’t feel any guilt. Homeboy needs to GROW UP. Keep reading »
