  • Simcha And Grandma Janet Bring “Ask Grandma” On “The Tyra Show”


    Check it out, Frisky readers, Simcha and her amazing grandma Janet stopped by “The Tyra Show” today to answer audience questions, just like they’ve done in our “Ask Grandma” video series. Grandma was in top form, looking fab as always (and nursing a vodka on the rocks, natch), while our dear Simcha was as smashing as always. My personal fave moments? When Grandma advocates watching porn in the bedroom and when she gives a shout out to her handsome 94-year-old boyfriend, telling TyTy the two are “having a ball.” We should all be so lucky! Check out the full appearance above! Keep reading »

    Are Women Programed To Fight With Their Mothers-In-Law?

    I’ve been married all of 11 days now and, as if on cue, the day my husband (still very much getting used to saying that!) and I tied the knot, he stopped putting the toilet seat down. I ignored it at first, but by our first weekend together as a married couple, I couldn’t stand it any longer and said something to him about it. I made a jokey comment about his sudden change in behavior — more embarrassed than pissed at being such a cliché so early in our marriage. After over three years together, surely he must realize if there’s one thing I wanted to avoid in marriage it was being a cliché, but I suppose the lesson here is that that’s a lost cause for any married couple, even those of us who think we’re so “modern.” One cliché I will be able to avoid, though, is the terrible mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship so many women have. My own mother-in-law passed away long before I got a chance to meet her, and while I’d love to think we would have had a wonderful relationship — if her sons are any indication, she was a terrific woman and I hope she would have approved of me — the odds, apparently, aren’t in our favor.

    Facebook Status Off

    One of my favorite things to come from social networking isn’t so much seeing how old high school nemeses have aged or e-stalking ex-boyfriends — though that can certainly be entertaining — it’s watching people make virtual fools of themselves in an attempt to garner some attention and perhaps even score a date with that cute friend of a friend they’ve been crushing on from afar. From Twitter updates to Facebook statuses — and endless photo tags, personality quizzes, and wall comments in between — social networks are ripe with endless possibilities for flirting, bragging, and showing off how witty one can be. As we’re all too well aware of, though, these antics are often more embarrassing than charming. The short film above called “Facebook Status Off” illustrates this point hilariously — check it out.

    Ask The Astrosexologist: Double The Scorpio Means Fireworks Or A Freak Show!

    I’ve (11/11/79) recently begun hanging out with the brother of an old friend (11/21/77)and what started as a ball-busting friendship is turning into an intense sexual attraction. We tend to have those conversations that potentially evolve into amazing earth-shattering sex punctuated by laughter and general awesomeness. We’ve both admitted that we feel uncommonly comfortable with each other and we’re sometimes brutally honest. Here’s the issue: right now neither one of us is in a place where we feel able to give a relationship our attention. He’s facing a MAJOR career-altering event in two months (hopefully once in a lifetime event), and I need a few weeks after school ends to get my s**t together after a career-altering and uncommonly stressful year. (I’m a teacher and grad student.) We both need lots of sex, and a primarily sexual relationship is OK with me for the foreseeable future. The problem is that we have an awesome connection, and I’m afraid I will get all dramatic in a few months if it has to end. I hate drama and he’s one of my best friends at the moment. I do not deal very well with uncertainty about this kind of stuff, which is probably why I am frequently single and a frequent battery-buyer. I like being in control, but I have never wanted to lose control more in my life. – Sex Starved Keep reading »

    Male blogger Craig JC over at Clutch Magazine tries to caution women against telling their best friends all the intimate details of their sexual life, saying that “we all need some type of privacy.” But while giving this advice, Craig helps to perpetuate the stereotype that all women are jealous backstabbers.
