Poll: Should You Lie About Your Age?

In this week’s issue of Time, the magazine asks feminist author Suzanne Braun Levine whether women should lie about their age. Levine has a new book out, 50 is the New Fifty, and she believes that society has a mental block about people older than 65. “And I was not so afraid of being old or being that age as I was of being pushed aside by people that I still had a lot in common with and wanted to stay connected to, particularly women in their 40s who were in their own kind of inventive process and who had a lot to say about their lives that I was interested in,” Levine told Time. She was worried that people would stop thinking she was relevant after becoming eligible for Social Security. Keep reading »

Perfume Erases Eight Years Of Age?

Forget eye creams, wrinkle creams, Botox, and cosmetic surgery because Ageless Fantasy perfume will erase eight years from your age. Certain scents, according to the company, remind people of youth. In a study cited by Ageless Fantasy, people were shown photographs of models while smelling grapefruits. All the male participants guessed the models to be three to eight years younger. The fragrance combines mango, pomegranate, grapefruit, jasmine, and musk because the company’s research found that 15 men thought these fruit smells were youthful, whereas the jasmine and musk smelled modern. In case you need further proof that people can smell your age, a study of only 22 people showed that women over 40 produce twice the amount of a particular pheromone associated with age. Is it just me or does all this “proof” sound bogus? Keep reading »

Scarlett Johansson Wishes She Was 10 Years Older!

Scarlett Johannson must have read about this study that says women feel their sexiest at 32, because the 24-year-old actor wishes she was 10 years older. “I don’t feel sexy, not right now. I think there is kind of an ingenue thing that women play when they are in their 20s. They are sort of these whimsical, sort of transient characters, and it’s like that in life,” she said. Although we can’t comprehend how Johansson doesn’t feel sexy with that body and intelligence, we totally buy her reason for wanting to be older in Hollywood: “Women in their 30s, and actors in their 30s, suddenly take on far meatier roles. They are playing mothers and wives and women who have been through a life – before the place that they are at that moment. And I look forward to that time when I’ll be able to have more of a life that I have experienced to put into the roles,” she said. For someone who wants more life experiences, Johansson sure has good advise on relationships… Keep reading »

What Was The Best Year Of Your Life?

Yet another Stupid Study That Pretends To Reveal Something Interesting, But Doesn’t has been released, and claims that women “feel sexiest” at age 34. That seems to be the median age between when women are having the most sex (in their late 20′s) and when they’re enjoying sex the most (in their 40′s). I don’t know anyone who is exactly 34, so I couldn’t fact check the validity of this study, but it did get me thinking about ages and general life enjoyment. Aside from the totally awesome years in my childhood, I think that my 28th year was both the best year of my life and the worst. I started The Frisky and got engaged. Then, of course, I also had that engagement end because my fiance (who is also probably have the best/worst year of his life) decided to have an existential quarter-life crisis. I hope 29 is less bi-polar. What was the best/worst year of your life and why? Keep reading »
