Dear Abby: I Wear Skirts. P.S. I’m A Man

We’ve written about men in skirts on the Frisky previously, but apparently the trend has it the epidemic level. One Joe in Pennsylvania wrote Dear Abby about his predilection for sporting skirts. “I’m a married man, confident in who I am, who wears skirts for comfort.” Um, OK. But why? “I feel that skirts are more comfortable than pants, which I find tight, restrictive and uncomfortable. I wear skirts around the house, when I’m out running errands and when I attend church. My clergyman has raised no objection to it.” My, what a liberal clergyman you have. Joe’s wife is supportive of his style choices, but their extended family isn’t thrilled. Abby pronounces: “As long as you have the testicular fortitude and shapely enough legs to wear skirts, then you have my blessing.” Well! Problem solved then. According to the Cut, 2009 is the year of the man-skirt. Keep reading »

Naked People Have Rights, Too

A state appeals court in Wisconsin ruled that a person who is voluntarily nude in the presence of another still has privacy rights against being secretly videotaped. This means that if you get naked with someone, they don’t have the right to tape you without your knowing. One less thing to worry about! [CBS News] Keep reading »

Style On The Street: Button-Downs Don’t Have To Be Buttoned

Let’s take a minute to remember the ’90s. Nirvana played on the radio, “Beverly Hills 90210″ was on TV, and you wore huge flannel shirts to school, sometimes with a kick-ass concert tee underneath. We’re not in the ’90s anymore, so this gal classed up the open-shirt look by swapping flannel for crisp, white oxford. [Weardrobe]

Does Parental Alienation Syndrome Exist?

Remember when Alec Baldwin railed against his then-11-year-old daughter, Ireland, in that now infamous voicemail message? Well, he claims he was suffering from Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) and has written a memoir, A Promise to Ourselves, about his devastating divorce and child custody battle with Kim Basinger. But what exactly is PAS and why is it so controversial? Keep reading »

Excuse Me, Bartender? There A Piece of A** In My Drink

In the land of booze, there’s no doubt that sex sells. We’re used to seeing the half-clad woman on a billboard, covering her crotch with a bottle of vodka. But why do we combine drink names with sex? Is it because of the good laugh we all have when asking a hot bartender, “Can you make me a Spread Eagle?” Whatever the reason, these sexy drinks usually have outlandish names with disgusting, random, sugary ingredients — things that no self-respecting boozehounds would ever order or put down their gullet. But damn, they’re fun. After the jump, a sexy drink sampling. Keep reading »

Keeping your hands busy should distract you from that throbbing head. Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: Capricorn With Cold Feet

I’m a Capricorn girl (moon in Pisces, Venus in Sagittarius, Mars in Libra) who’s four years into a long-distance relationship with a Sagittarian guy (moon in Cancer, Venus in Capricorn, Mars in Virgo). I think we both feel a sense of being drawn to the other, but this long-distance situation has taken a big toll on me emotionally. My biggest problem is that I have such a hard time trusting him and believing his motives are genuine. My dad (Aries) was a philanderer so my natural cynicism and disbelief that men can truly love and be happy with one woman is quite high. Sag guy makes an effort to listen to my doubts, learn to communicate better through words, and let me know how important I am to him. I think I love his freewheeling Sag ways when we’re together, but feel some concern over them when we’re apart. Keep reading »
