This July 4th, celebrate our nation’s birth not just by watching fireworks, but by setting off some of your own. Don’t just eat BBQ, play hide the sausage. OK, these double entendres are played out. We know it. We’ ll just come right out and say it: Whatever your plans may be this holiday, assert your (sexual) Independence by making time for a good ‘ol outdoor romp. The holiday requires it. Just don’t get caught. Unless you’re into that kind of thing. After the jump, our suggestions … Keep reading »
There’s breaking news like Anderson Cooper coming out or ObamaCare being upheld by the Supreme Court, and then there’s breaking news that is way less important, but equally as impactful. For example, the revelation that there is a solution for the excessively gassy individuals of this great nation. Flat-D disposable fart deodorizers are the product that people with digestive disorders have been dreaming of. There is no cure for gas, but this product is a simple solution which will allow everyone to fart with confidence. Just place the pad inside your underwear and let your gaseous emissions activate the carbon in the Flat-D pad, which absorbs and masks fart odor. For additional flatulence support at work, you can purchase Flat-D chair pad. I know some people whose lives will be changed by the Flat-D, although I’m not mentioning any names. [Laughing Squid]
I’m a fan of referring to pubic hair sans styling as “fur pie,” because it makes everyone in The Frisky offices squeal for some reason. Maybe from now on I’ll just say “1962″ and hope everyone gets my pubic drift. If they watch this clever Playboy South Africa video about how ladies have styled their pubic hair throughout the ages via dude’s hairstyles — totally safe for work! — they certainly will.

In an article on The Daily Beast published this morning by his friend, the journalist Andrew Sullivan, CNN reporter Anderson Cooper has finally come out of the closet as gay. Though it’s been an open secret for years and, as he explains, Cooper has realized that he did not want to seem as if he was hiding his homosexuality out of shame. You can read Anderson’s beautiful coming-out email, published with permission, in part below and it continues after the jump:
I’ve always believed that who a reporter votes for, what religion they are, who they love, should not be something they have to discuss publicly. As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn’t matter. I’ve stuck to those principles for my entire professional career, even when I’ve been directly asked “the gay question,” which happens occasionally. I did not address my sexual orientation in the memoir I wrote several years ago because it was a book focused on war, disasters, loss and survival. I didn’t set out to write about other aspects of my life.
Recently, however, I’ve begun to consider whether the unintended outcomes of maintaining my privacy outweigh personal and professional principle. It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something – something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true. Keep reading »
It’s not enough that model Anja Rubik is incredibly beautiful — she also seems to be really, effortlessly cool. And motivated! Rubik is about to launch the first issue of her new erotica-tinged mag, 25. The magazine will feature spreads with some of Anja’s best model friends, and interviews with some of her famous female friends. Rubik says she was wholly invested in making an erotica magazine that would represent the female gaze, so she enlisted a roster of female photographers for all the shoots. “It was bothering me how the world is nowadays – how we approach nudity and sexuality and beauty,” said Rubik of the venture. “Nowadays, sex and nudity is either so vulgar or so prude. So I wanted to create something inspiring, and beautiful, and sensual, to get people to think in a different way.“ [NYMag.com]
Let’s be frank here, this doesn’t look like a sausage costume, does it? Jill Makinson-Sanders, mayor of the English town of Louth, miscalculated when she took to the streets in this 8-foot-tall banger (that’s Brit speak for sausage) costume for the Olympic torch parade. And rightfully so, everyone mistook Sanders for a giant penis. “She didn’t carry the torch but when you saw her running down the street by the torch relay team nearby it really looked like she was wearing something obscene,” said Sandra Ellington, a resident of Louth. “Surely she could see that it looked more like a c**k. I can’t believe she could have been so stupid … she’s made the town a laughing stock,” added — rhymed! — another embarrassed resident. Oops. But Sanders is not apologizing. She defended her choice of attire saying, “I was not attending [the event] in my capacity as mayor.” You heard the lady. On her off time, she is free to do as she pleases.
