My stomach hurts from laughing so hard. One lucky couple can now include the world’s most iconic photo in their wedding album, and it’s all because of a little miscommunication. Bride-to-be Kristen, who was planning to marry in England, text messaged a group of friends inviting them to a bridal party barbecue and photo shoot, but she accidentally included the phone number of a stranger … who showed up … with an entourage.
See, when the stranger corrected the bride by telling her she sent the message to the wrong number, but that “me and my boys will be there” anyway, she clarified that the invite was off the table. His response: “We still coming.”
And the rest is history. Check out the text message that started it all after the jump! [NY Post] Keep reading »
If you were to chuck everybody who wasn’t a millionaire out of New York City, the city would still have a higher population than New Orleans, according to a new study. Researchers at Spear’s magazine say 4.63 percent of the city’s population have assets of $1 million or more—excluding their primary residences—adding up to 389,100 millionaires. Read more on Newser…
Hey, even Mary Poppins needs to pay the bills. Maybe if the federal minimum wage were just a little bit higher, she wouldn’t have to quit! Leave it to Kristen Bell to combine musical theater and social justice. Just a $3 increase can make a living wage! [Funny Or Die]
Emily-Rose Eastop, a 26-year-old from London, is crowd-funding the expenses of her master’s degree program. The scientist with a talent for singing and dancing graduated in 2010 with a degree in Human Sciences, and was shocked when she was turned down for over 200 jobs (though it’s worth considering that she only applied for work through notoriously useless online job-hunting platforms). She’s spent the past fours years relying on the support of her mother and boyfriend to live and tutoring biology to make some cash here and there. Keep reading »
Add Pharrell to the list of famous singing men who want to assure women of all colors, shapes, sizes and ages that NOT TO WORRY, we are beautiful, HE PROMISES. His new video for “Come Get It Bae” kicks off with an all caps message: “BEAUTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE.” Thanks, Pharrell! I was worried. The video features a bevy of racially diverse women having a blast dancing, one by one, while Pharrell films them with a handheld camera. It’s totally fun and silly and all of the women featured — with the exception of Miley Cyrus, who makes a cute, not-twerking cameo — are pretty, but in a normal-ish way, not a Miranda Kerr way. So I like it! Truly! But I remain irritated by dudes like Pharrell and John Legend doling out unsolicited stamps of approval on our physical attractiveness. (P.S. Bae is a term of endearment that means “before anyone else.”) [NYMag.com]
Happy National Tequila Day! Tequila cocktails have always been my go-to drink when I’m looking for something refreshing with a kick. In fact, I have a half-full bottle of Sauza Blue sitting on my desk as we speak (no joke), and on top of that, “You and Tequila” by Kenny Chesney is my favorite song of all time. Coincidence? Nope. I’m not alone though, because the US alone has 45 million tequila drinkers, and consumes twice as much tequila as Mexico. So here at The Frisky, we’ve compiled a list of some of kickass tequila cocktails— yes, including tasty margaritas— to help you pay tribute to this very important occasion. Click through the gallery to get your drank on. Cheers!

One of the first questions people usually ask upon meeting me is what I do for a living. When I respond casually that I’m a production assistant on queer porn, then the questions really get going. What does a porn PA do, exactly?
I’ll tell you one thing: much to my regret, I am not a fluffer. I know, I know, it’s a great tragedy for me, too.
I dreamed of working on a porn set from when I was a teen, thumbing through copies of Club Magazine and trolling various AOL cybersex forums. I dreamed of being on NoFauxxx or SuicideGirls, and got into erotic modeling intending to take it further. But life got in the way of my exhibitionist dreams, and I didn’t revisit my love for porn until I founded the Ladies High Tea and Pornography Society, a discussion, Sunday tea, and porn appreciation gathering I threw for a few years in London. When, at 27, I started performing in adult films, I never imagined I would one day be on the other side of the camera. Keep reading »
Public Service Announcement time: always remove your sex toy from your pussy. A woman in Scotland complaining of weight loss and incontinence had an icky surprise waiting for her at the doctor’s office: a sex toy abandoned in her vagina. As reported by The Journal Of Sexual Medicine, the sex toy (which was described as five-inches large, but otherwise not specified) poked into her bladder and caused a fistula and urinary blockages. Unpleasant! The lady admitted using the sex toy 10 years ago while drinking and couldn’t remember whether she removed it — obviously not. Perhaps after a night of boozing and sexing, it’s a good idea to do a roll call of your sex toys the next day. [Daily Mail UK via Gawker] [Images via Shutterstock and Daily Mail UK]
I’m sure by now that everyone has seen Men Taking Up Too Much Space On the Train, a genius Tumblr that more than adequately demonstrates the fact that we teach women to take up as little space as possible and teach the opposite to men. The blog draws regular ire from dudes, and the person (woman? I don’t know) who curates the blog is happy to just rip apart their responses, so good luck with that, guys. The most common excuse guys give is “We sit that way because we have dicks.” Ironically, I’m pretty sure that “because we have dicks” is the basic justification that’s been used an immeasurable number of times over history to do things like deny women the right to vote or own land or have autonomy over our own bodies, harass us in public all the fucking time, and block us from adequate and equal access to healthcare, but WHATEVS. Another thing people like to do with this Tumblr is write in to mock the blog by saying things like “Oh yeah you’re so oppressed because guys are taking up a lot of space on the train,” which kind of completely misses the point. So I feel like it’s my duty to say here that the point is that we teach men and women to dignify their bodies differently, and that’s worth questioning.
That being said. Keep reading »
