The Top 11 Songs About Lady Flowers

The music industry is dominated by men, so it’s no wonder there’s about 10 bazillion songs all about wiener and not so many about vagina. But I found 11 amazing songs that truly spew pure poetry about patsy, yoni, punani, dew flaps, sugar basin, jam cookie, or whatever else you wanna call it. Keep reading »

Election 2008: This Is What Women Want

What do women want? It’s an age-old question that makes men, like our presidential candidates, rack their brains. But how can all the bitches we know give them some answers? Let’s face it, we each have our own opinions. And the thing is, while I can easily tell my gal pal her new hand painted purple clogs make her look like Barney, how can I get to tell these big powerful candidates, with their team of security guards, that I want to keep my reproductive rights? (And please, if I ever got near Barack Obama, I’d giggle like a schoolgirl.) This Is What Women Want, a new grassroots website, is providing an open forum for women to post their political beliefs on everything from immigration to education. Also, with one click, you can instantly chime in and vote on other ladies’ posts through a rating system. I just gave “rape victims’ rights” five stars! So hey, I opened my big mouth, now it’s your turn. [Our Bodies, Our Blog] Keep reading »

Ringtone Promotes Safe Sex In India

There are many ways to let people know you’re into having safe sex. The easiest being to verbalize your needs: “I will not sleep with you unless you use a condom.” If you lived in India, you could always let your phone tell people for you. A cell phone ring tone was launched August 8 and features a singer chanting the word “condom” 50 times. So far it has been downloaded 60,000 times. “A ring tone is a very public thing,” said Yvonne MacPherson, the country director of BBC World Service Trust India. “It’s a way to show you are a condom user and you don’t have any issues with it.” We can think of a few other ringtones we wish existed… Keep reading »

The Happy Hooker?: Sex Work Is All The Rage

Months after the Spitzer scandal broke and call girls became the new black, Radar offers up the strange tale of a wannabe working girl in “Secrets of a Hipster Hooker.” Written by Jessica Pilot, the feature is an awkward mix of personal narrative and words from the mouths of so-called “hipster hookers.” It begins with Pilot meeting her would-be, thirty-something, Gucci bag-toting madam at a vegan restaurant, a woman who, it turns out, is a “consultant for a major news media organization.”

The Frisky’s Guide To Snooping

I enjoy a good snoop — when I’m in a house that’s not my own, I have been known to rifle through a drawer or two, check out the medicine cabinet, and try on the owner’s clothing (including a wedding dress once). A few months ago, when my fiance was out of town, I went through all his photos of him with his ex-girlfriend. Sometimes, if he leaves his laptop on and his email is up there on the screen just BEGGING for me to take a looksie, I’ll glance, but never actually open anything. Then again, I have never seen anything that got my curiosity brewing beyond control.

The point is, everyone snoops, at least a little, and no one more so than the protagonist of the book I’m reading, Whacked by Jules Asner. It’s chick lit, but it’s not crappy or badly written, though it’s definitely beach-worthy. In the book, Dani uses her skills as a writer for CSI-esque crime show to snoop on everyone from the owners of the open houses she attends to her no-good boyfriend. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with her tactics and tips, as well as some of the handy online tools she used, so I decided to assemble a guide to snooping, after the jump. Don’t blame me if you get caught red-handed though. I am hardly a professional. Keep reading »

The Today Show’s Wacky Olympics Coverage

The Today Show‘s coverage of the Olympics in Beijing has been cracking me up. This morning they featured this troupe of Chinese old women who taught themselves hip-hop dance moves and yesterday morning, Al Roker and Matt Lauer showed off their skills on the dance floor, performing rhythmic gymnastics. Poor Al looks like he might have a heart attack at any second. Clip above! Keep reading »
