Girl Talk: Maybe I Should Try Celibacy

I’m seriously inspired by this article I saw in the New York Post, “No More Sex In The City,” about how celibacy has become “a thing.” It opens with the story of 29-year-old Brooklyn musician Katie Jean Arnold:

After hooking up with a stranger on the L train platform and going back to his place, she woke up at his apartment and decided to leave. On her way out the door, he came up to her, naked, and said the words she’ll never forget: ‘What’s your name?’ It was then that she made her Big Decision. No. More. Sex. Katie plans to keep her chastity belt on from now on … well at least until she achieves her dream of landing a record deal. “Not having sex is like giving up junk food … sex in New York for me had become like the 99-cent package of Ding Dongs on the corner.”

I’m embarrassed to admit that I can totally relate. Oh man, do I love Ding Dongs. Keep reading »

Facebook Says Getting Engaged Makes Women Unhappy

One would think that becoming engaged would make a woman happy, right? Well, if status updates on Facebook are any indication — and at least two research scientists say they are — that theory is all wrong. Cameron Marlow and D.J. Patil spend their days tracking trends on Facebook where the roughly 400 million users give them a totally unprecedented insight into human behavior. Together, they study what Facebook calls the “Gross National Happiness Index,” an application “that measures the positive and negative sentiments expressed in status posts,” and what they’ve found, especially when it comes to how relationships affect us, may surprise many people.

Should She Return Her Engagement Ring?


It’s one of those age-old debates—when an engagement is called off, should the woman return the ring or can she keep it? Last month, a New York judge ordered a woman to return her rock to her fiance, which she thought was totally unfair because he had cheated and caused her “emotional distress” in the process. Colette DiPierro, 28, of Staten Island, is in a similar position. She is being sued by her ex fiance to give the $17K ring back and will be heading to court soon. But, she claims that she’s keeping the ring as collateral for money he owes her for rent and other bills. Plus, she says, the ring was also a birthday gift. Earlier this week, she headed to “The Wendy Williams Show” to argue her case. Hear what she has to say above. What do you think? Should she be legally forced to return the ring? Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “How Can Overweight Women Look Sexy?”

A few days ago I was walking past a girl and she just seemed so incredibly sexy and beautiful and I’m actually WAYYY smaller than her, but just, something about her seemed so attractive! This has happened to me a few times. I’m not incredibly fat, but I’ve got a belly and arms, and even though these girls were actually fat-fat, they just seemed so much more hotter than me and guys were actually hitting on them and stuff. How the heck did they manage that? — Unfabulous

Girl Talk: I Won’t Be Another Notch On His Bedpost

It’s 12:30 a.m. on a Saturday night, and Matt—who you may remember as the guy who slept with 150 woman, but wouldn’t sleep with me—asks me back to his house to watch a movie. Although we’re not officially together, he’s become my non-boyfriend—we see each other at least twice a week. Dinner was lovely and after a few glasses of wine, I’m drunk and giddy. We don’t see eye-to-eye on many things. I’ll never understand his preference for 20-year-old waif models who could care less about his blasé attitude towards their hearts and emotions, and he doesn’t get my love of cute hipster nice guys who allow me to be careless with their feelings. But we always agree on this: we enjoy each other’s company. Keep reading »

5 Reasons I’m A Missionary Gal

When I was a kid, my friends and I would trade candy underneath the jungle gym during recess. The popularity of early 1980s candy went as such: Candy necklaces were snatched up first, then Pop Rocks, then Nerds, and last but not least, Pixie Sticks. However, when it was my turn to offer up a sugary confection, I’d elicit groans from my pals when I brought forth from the pocket of my overalls a tube of plain Cherry Lifesavers. The general consensus from the crowd was those hard red circles “tasted like cough syrup.” But I loved their simplistic round design, their steadfast refusal to be bright and popular like the other candies.

Love Vandal: Sweet Bus Stop

Reader Samantha snapped this, saying, “Who knows how long ago someone stumbled upon the wet cement and wrote this in, but it makes my daily wait for the bus just a little bit sweeter!”

Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to tips@thefrisky.com. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: What The Hell Is Happening To 30-Something Guys?

If every time I met a cute, funny, smart, nice, emotionally stable, 30-something man with a girlfriend an angel exploded into a fireball and someone gave me a nickel, I would have enough money to buy a fancy angel graveyard with marble headstones. That is how frequent — and how tragic — this experience has become.

The only type of 30-something guy I meet more than the cute, funny, smart, nice, emotionally stable and totally taken type is the cute, funny, smart, nice, emotionally unstable, completely single, and totally confused type. Taking the #3 spot is the single douchebag, but we don’t care about him (unless I get desperately horny and then I might sleep with him). Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “He Wants Us To Hit A Strip Club For His Birthday”

I have been dating my boyfriend for almost a year and I love him very much. This weekend we are celebrating his birthday and I have gone out of my way to make this birthday extra special for him and have organized gifts, dinner, and an evening out with friends down to the last detail. I am a little nervous because whenever we go out with his friends, mostly married couples or engaged, they always want to end the night at a strip club. For the past year, I have gotten out of these outings by adamantly putting my foot down that I absolutely will not go. But I know that since it’s his birthday, if he wants to go then I will not have a choice. I have been to a strip club before and it was the most uncomfortable evening of my life. The thought of having to go again just terrifies me, I’m talking knees-knocking, nervous breakdown, panic attack type thoughts. What do I do? Become a brat and potentially go home alone on his birthday night? Or suck it up and take a Xanax because I want him to enjoy his special night? I know if I go then I will have fight or flight takeover and probably end up chain smoking in the bathroom. — Strip Tease

Why Women On Dating Sites Don’t Respond To Men

Did you know that when it comes to online dating, it’s a chick’s market? Apparently, dudes get shut down left and right, and women get winked and emailed to death. If you check out OnlineDatingMatchMaker.com, you’ll see that it’s men who are sending out plenty of emails, but rarely do they get a return email. Sucks for you, fellas! Regardless, we here at The Frisky are big fans of the males, and we thought we would explain why you never heard back from us. Keep reading »
