The Frisky’s 8 Things That Should Be Sexy, But Aren’t

Ironically, many of the items marketed for sexy times are actually huge turnoffs. Like a skirt-chasing guy who reeks of desperation, they’re gross, they’re unnecessary, and they make things uncomfortable. These eight products can be used to show of your goods, but we don’t recommend it:

Chocolate Cooch Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend recently gave him a very intimate birthday present: a chocolate mold of her vagina. They just broke up, so apparently it wasn’t enough. Keep reading »

Gmail To Prevent Drunk Messaging (Well, On The Weekends, At Least)

We’ve all been there, we’ve had a bit too much to drink — more than some of us would care to admit — and suddenly, calling, texting, or emailing an old flame seems like the best. Idea. Ever!! You know it never goes well and the humiliation the next morning is worse than the raging hangover. It’s not just old flames we drunkenly reach out to, either — there are also estranged friends and family members, old (or, worse, current) bosses and co-workers, and random cuties online. Back when Friendster was the social networking site du jour and I was nursing a broken heart and wounded ego, I spent more than one wine-soaked evening exchanging messages with attractive, 28-38 year-old men in my area, messages I hope stay as buried as that broken relationship I was trying to get over.

On occasions like those, it would have been nice to have someone — anyone! — stop me and say, “Wendy, do you really want to send that message? Are you sure it’s not just the booze talking?” I can’t guarantee I wouldn’t have pushed “send” just the same, but still, maybe a voice of reason would have saved me from one or two of my more embarrassing drunken messaging mishaps. If Gmail has anything to say about it, all of us are about to have that much-needed voice of reason in our lives…well, on the weekends, anyway (and provided you don’t suck at math).

Get Your Rocks Off: The Filthy Youth’s Breakup Mix

We’ve already endorsed Ed Westwick, the lad who acts the role of playboy Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl. So, when we heard that he’s in a UK-based band called the Filthy Youth, he became too perfect for words. Ed aside, the Filthy Youth’s indie punk beats are the kind that make you want to drink Jameson straight up and not bathe for a few days (in a good way, of course). After the jump, the band’s list of breakup songs, which they described as, “a few soppy…and the others are for getting yourself back up!” Keep reading »

Pre-Order Your Anya Hindmarch For Target Bag Now

British accessories designer Anya Hindmarch (the woman behind the “I am not a plastic bag” canvas totes) has designed a collection of handbags for Target, and even though they’re technically not available until Oct. 12, Target.com is allowing pre-orders right now. The Anya Hindmarch for Target bags all cost between $19.99 and $49.99 and are made of PVC plastic. While some people might turn their noses up at PVC, I rather like the idea of not having to worry about my bag getting ruined in a downpour. [Target via Fashionista] Keep reading »

Bad Advice: Julia Allison Wants You To Withhold Sex

NonSociety blogger and Time Out New York columnist Julia Allison posed a question in her site the other dayWhat is a “normal” length of time to wait before having sex with a new partner? — and proposed an answer:

My methodology (for women, of course): if you think you’ve waited long enough, wait even longer. If you like the guy at ALL, don’t think about sleeping with him until at least — AT LEAST — the sixth or seventh date, or four-to-five weeks in, whichever comes last.

I wholeheartedly disagree and actually think this is pretty terrible, game-playing advice. Keep reading »
