The Top 5 Space Studs Of Sci-Fi Films

Science Fiction is full of freaks, but the heroes make us want to get freaky. From spandex spacesuits to alien armor, just looking at these guys makes us sweat. So, in honor of the gentlemen that fend off evildoers and fulfill our fantasies, here’s The Frisky’s Top Five Space Studs of Sci-Fi.

5. Sam Jones as Flash Gordon The bleach blond muscle-bound babe was tough enough to play professional football and fight off intergalactic bad guys. He was an eyeful in spandex on screen, but if you want to see Flash in the flesh, check out his nsfw Playgirl pictorial from ‘75. We’re pretty sure the “Flash! O-oh!” lyric from the theme song came after Freddie Mercury saw this spread. Keep reading »

Male Wasps Think Orchids Are Sexy

Orchids that look like female wasps make life confusing for male wasps. The men think the flowers are female wasps, therefore, they try to copulate with them, which doesn’t work very well. They just waste their precious sperm. “Unquestionably, producing sperm, ejaculate, or seminal fluids is costly for many animals,” reports the study, published in The American Naturalist. “The energetic demands of sperm production can result in reduced body mass, a shortened life span, or limited lifetime sperm production.” Nature must have done a really good job with these orchids, because the male pollinators sometimes prefer them to the females they mimic. The male wasps will even prematurely end a romp with a female wasp to visit an orchid. Poor gals. The orchids are super smart, too, because by tricking the men into getting busy with them instead of wasps, they’re limiting the future wasp female population while possibly increasing the male population (which would then pollinate the orchids), because female wasps can asexually reproduce male wasps, but not females.

What’s It Like Dating A Guy In Jail?

“You look beautiful,” he says. He looks snuggly in his uniform: white t-shirt over a thermal shirt, green cotton pants and black Chinese slippers.

I love theme parties. The theme for jail visits is “Modest Dress,” defined by the Jail Administration as no visible shoulders, cleavage, knees or toes. No sweatpants, nothing tight. I’ve discovered that they only seem to notice stretchy-tight — tailored-tight doesn’t read the same way– so I dress the way sluts did in my mother’s day: pencil skirt, satin blouse with buttons and darts. I put heels in my purse and wear sneakers because I have to take two buses and two trains. Jail is a large imposing building in the middle of nowhere.

At the main entrance to jail there are lockers for purses, coats, wallets and keys. I give my ID to Officer Hunk, who is 6’4” and bass-voiced and all the ladies flirt with him. He checks it against Darling Boyfriend’s visitor list and hands me a receipt in triplicate.

“You look beautiful,” he says. He looks snuggly in his uniform: white t-shirt over a thermal shirt, green cotton pants and black Chinese slippers.

He’s awfully pale from being indoors. Behind him is the unit where he spends all of his time. It is two-tiered and looks like on TV.

The counter is on his side too and we perch on it, our legs side by side, shouting to be heard through the grate in the frame of the window. Visits are 15 minutes long but if there’s no one waiting they can be much longer. It’s up to Curly to decide which visiting bay to shut down and when. Curly has a little crush on me so while the guards chase out other visitors Darling and I are left alone. We talk about what we’re reading, a trip we have planned for Vancouver this summer since my mom thinks he’s there now. I notice anew that he has the most perfect ears and artistic hands. These observations are accompanied by achingly physical recollections of private moments. We get ninety whole minutes together but eventually the knock comes. It’s hard to leave but best to exit promptly. We blow kisses, mouth ‘I love you’s. I leave jail grinning.

So I’m Engaged: The Politics Of Choosing A Bridesmaid

I’ve been reading this book I Was Told There’d Be Cake, a collection of personal essays by Sloane Crosley, for the last few months. Though I think the book, in general, is a little “try too hard”, there’s one story in particular that really struck a chord with me. “You On A Stick” is about the time that Sloane’s best friend from her youth called her up out of the blue, after not having spoken for years, and asked her to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. The essay ends up being about a lot of issues associated with being a bridesmaid — from the mundane and annoying tasks associated with the duty, like making a veil out of wrapping paper at the bridal shower, to the more serious issue of female friendships and what they mean. The latter hit home for me though — for the record, my bridesmaids will never have to make an asinine hat for me out of ribbons unless they put a gun to my head and force me to wear one — because I’ve been having a really hard time with this particular part of getting married.

Even “Real” Women Are Digitally Enhanced

Just like every other impressionable tween, I saw models in magazines and felt a little bad about myself because my body didn’t look like theirs. I’m a smart girl, but it didn’t really set in that these were not their bodies (or faces, even) until I worked at a magazine and saw how photos were tweaked — who wants to look at pages of ugly people? On Newsweek.com, a writer takes part in a photo shoot, then goes through the lengthy retouching process, demonstrating how much work it actually takes to make someone look “flawless”. Keep reading »

Marrying Young Isn’t Just For Rich Old Guys Like Donald Trump

The older a man is when he gets married, the more likely it is that his bride will be significantly younger — even if he’s poor — according to new Stanford University research. Men in their 40s tend to marry women who are an average of seven years younger; for men in their 50s, there’s usually an 11-year age difference; and if a guy’s in his 60s, his wife will be about 13 years younger. “In first marriages, men are typically a couple years older than women,” said Paula England, co-author of the study. But, “the older men are when they marry, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s a first or a second marriage, the more years they marry down.” Keep reading »
