What You Need: Over-Priced Condoms

Sir Richard’s Condom Company. It sounds fancy, doesn’t it? If you’re tired of sneaking around drug stores late at night to buy condoms, there’s a new company that makes picking up prophylactics not only chic, but economically sound. Now, these condoms don’t come cheap. They’re $14 for a pack of 12. But for every condom the company sells, they’ll donate a condom to a country in need (in other words, in a part of the world where safe sex practices do not abound). Their slogan: “Doing good never felt better.” Ha! The packaging is chic, and they can be found everywhere from Whole Foods to Fred Segal. Their latest ad campaign points out that spending money on condoms today will save you big bucks later if you’re not looking to procreate, buy a minivan, and start saving for your kid’s college tuition.

10 Stars Reveal Their Dating Dealbreakers

Reese Witherspoon has just one request if you go out on a date with her—don’t correct her grammar. “I had someone correct my grammar on a blind date once, and I knew within the first 10 minutes that the date was over,” she said. “I don’t even remember what I said – I probably said ‘ain’t.’ Just don’t correct my grammar. I’m from Tennessee. I probably say everything wrong.” [People]

Reese’s experience inspired us to tell you the dating don’ts that make any chance of scoring with us wilt to zero. But what do other stars have to say on this topic? Find out other celebrity dating no-nos after the jump.

Hey Girl, Ryan Gosling Appeciates A Good Internet Meme


Of all the things a guy could find out about me through a Google search, the one thing he should probably actually be concerned about is my undying love for Ryan Gosling. Not a day goes by where there isn’t a sudden, loud moaning grunt sound echoing from my cubicle, startling the rest of The Frisky staff. “What’s wrong?!” they ask. “Oh nothing. Sorry, just came across a new Ryan Gosling picture/quote/video. I love him so much.” Today I moan-grunted over this interview he did with MTV about the meme “F**k Yeah Ryan Gosling” in which photos of Ryan are given quotes like, “Hey Girl, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride Isn’t As Wild As The Ride I’ll Take You On.” Gosling himself seems to see the humor in the ridiculousness of it all, and shows that he’s a good sport by reading a few out loud. Hence, today’s moan-grunt. [MTV] Keep reading »

Salma Hayek Says She Was An Illegal Immigrant

Salma Hayek looks kind of like an alien on the cover of V Spain. Which is fitting, because inside the magazine, she reveals that she was once living in the United States as an illegal alien. (Yeah, I don’t love that phrase, either. Sorry I had to use it to make that intro work.) “I was an illegal immigrant in the United States,” says Salma. “It was for a small period of time, but I still did it.” She doesn’t specify when exactly. It could be when she was a high school student at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Louisiana. (She headed back to Mexico for college.) Or during her early days in Hollywood. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: There’s More To Me Than My Google Search Results

After a bit of a hiatus, I reactivated my online dating account in July. I got lots of messages in those first few weeks, but only one person stood out to me as someone I might like to meet in person. Ryan* and I messaged back and forth a few times and then he suggested we meet for a drink. To make the arrangements, we switched to email and that’s how I learned his full name. Armed with that information, I did what I almost always do in advance of a first date — Google the person to make sure he’s not wanted by the FBI, a convicted rapist, or a Christian rock musician. Ryan* was none of these things, thank goodness, but I did stumble upon some other unsavory information during my research: his political views — which he expressed on an occasionally used Twitter account and in conversations with a couple friends on his Google Buzz page — were vastly different from mine. Things I believe strongly in, he believed strongly against and so forth. Clearly, I needed to cancel this date immediately. Keep reading »

Stir Things Up With These Peppermint Cocktail Stirrers

One of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to take things that are already awesome — like chocolate brownies, kitty cats, and cocktails, for example — and make them even more awesome, usually by adding some marshmallows or mint chips and maybe a cute Christmas sweater to the former two. For the latter, Baileys usually does the trick, but then we found these peppermint cocktail stirrers and, oh my God, suddenly our lives — and our drinks — just got a bit more festive. Cheers, and happy holidays, everyone!
