Thank you, Kathie Lee Gifford, for all the joy you’ve brought us this year on “The Today Show.” Thank you for day drinking and doing silly things. And thank you for this one last “der” moment, where you reference a blow job without even knowing it by mistakenly thinking “BJ” stands for “before Jay” (Hoda’s new boyfriend). I’m sure Hoda Kotb and Jay thank you as well. [Perez Hilton]
I once spent a 4th of July weekend with about 15 hardcore evangelical Christians. (Ex-Mr. Jessica’s sister was a born-again.) Explaining to some of the women what kind of website I write for proved to be awkward. But when I told one woman that The Frisky was similar to Cosmopolitan magazine, she exclaimed, “Oh, I read that!”
“Really?” I asked. “Isn’t it a little … uh … raunchy?”
She laughed. “Oh, I just flip past all the shirtless guys and stuff about sex.”
Then what part of the magazine do you actually read? I thought to myself.
That conversation popped into my head again when I saw this article on The Daily Beast about religious websites selling sex toys and the horrifying — not being hyperbolic here — opening story about a Christian woman who was married for 25 years before she finally bought a vibrator and had her first orgasm. Praise be! Keep reading »
Here’s an amazing excerpt from the 1948 book, You And Your Sex Life: An Illustrated Guide Book For Women. You’ll find this particularly helpful if you’re one of the few women in the world who still has pubic hair or if you don’t yet use baby wipes. Soap and water does the trick when your pubes become odorous. As far as your anal area, you must cleanse carefully after every “evacuation.” And last but not least, ladies, don’t forget to clean the smegma out of your vestibule, it becomes offensive if neglected. Good to know. [Buzzfeed]
When I started writing for The Frisky, I had no idea what a Fleshlight even was, which makes sense because I don’t have a penis. I thought they were flashlights used to light the way during oral sex. Oh, the things you learn! Imagine my surprise when I discovered that a Fleshlight is actually an orifice (mouth, vulva, or anus) resembling a flashlight, which is used for male masturbatory purposes. This makes me all the more skeeved out by these My Little Pony branded flashlights, which appear to be the Internet’s idea of a joke. Kids toys and sex toys do not a tasteful mashup make. The poor ponies. They just want to have their hair combed and eat grass out in the backyard. At least, that’s what mine liked to do. How they have been denigrated by the sex toy industry. Click through to see more fleshlights that creep the crap out of us. [Buzzfeed]
Slut. It’s an ugly word, isn’t it? Especially when it’s flung at you by some jerk who thinks the worst way he can insult a woman is by impugning her reputation. (Newsflash: it isn’t.)
But lots of unapologetically sexual ladies don’t let “slut” be a pejorative. Instead, they say, “Judgment be damned!” and wave their slut flag high and wide. They sleep with who they want, when they want, as much as they want, no matter what anyone else says.
In the spirit of embracing sluthood, let’s tip our hats to the bravely hedonistic women (and a few men!) who make up The Frisky’s 10 Proudest Sluts Of 2011!
