The Soapbox: Why We Can’t Resist An A-Hole

If I hadn’t witnessed it with my own eyes, I never would have believed it. My friends and I stumbled into a crowded bar for some after-dinner drinks one night and, within 30 minutes, my friend Aaron had the waitress’s phone number. Not that surprising since Aaron is a tall, good-looking guy who always seem…

Girl Talk: I Want To Date A Good Guy

There seems to be this undercurrent of a**hole-loving lately; my peers justifying their ill-advised decision to partner with people they believe can and will "change." I’m all about personal preference, but it seems that while the Nice Guy/A**hole debate rages on, no one has stood up for the Good Guys.

Why Women Prefer Bad Boys

A new study done at the University of British Columbia may explain our penchant for bad boys. No, it's not because they treat us like crap. Phew, that theory has always really irked me. It's all in their smile, or rather, lack thereof. Researchers found that women ranked images of men "brooding" far more sexually…

Alex Pettyfer Has A Bad Attitude, A “Thank You” Tattoo Over His Penis

His last name may sound a lot like "petit four," but "Beastly" and "I Am Number Four" star Alex Pettyfer is far from sweet and sugary on the inside. First there were the rumors of vicious phone threats he made toward ex Dianna Agron. And his new interview in VMAN magazine doesn't…

Why Women Date Bad Boys

You do your best to be the good guy, to be the opposite of the guy who hurt her, but eventually she leaves you in the dust and returns to the excitement of the bad boy. What happened? Read more ...

I Like Jerks

I liked jerks. No, I loved them, but now, looking back, I realize it wasn't just that. For the most part, every man who failed to call me was capable of calling someone else, and at a certain point, I had to face the fact that it wasn't just them, it was me. I begged…

Sorry, Girls — There Are No Nice Guys

Here's the thing -- on paper, I'm actually one of those Nice Guys you often hear and/or read about. I'm uncomfortable to the point of nausea at the idea of being a jerk to women in order to manipulate them into sleeping with me. I do everything in my power to make a girl I'm…

Daisy Picks Her Dude. And, Of Course, It’s London.

While most of you were drooling over "True Blood" last night, I had much more important things to attend to. Namely, the season finale of "Daisy Of Love." What went down wasn't a shocker to anyone who'd been watching the season, which took trashy reality dating shows to a whole new gloriou…

The Top 10 Hottest Bad Boy Names

A new study published in The Social Science Quarterly completely backs up Johnny Cash’s story in ”A Boy Named Sue.” As it turns out, calling your baby boy something uncommon, unpopular, or feminine will most definitely “increase the tendency toward juvenile delinquency.” There’s a greater chance he’ll wind up in the…

SexReally Tries (& Fails) To Explain Why Nice Guys Finish Last

The second SexReally podcast by anti-hookup crusader Laura Sessions Stepp is online, this time looking into the subject of "Why Nice Guys Finish Last." Jorge from NYC told Sessions Stepp that he "stopped being nice" because he wasn't getting any girls and added, "I know guys who are a**holes because they…

Is Shia LaBeouf A “Bad Boy” Or Just Screwed Up?

If nothing else, the train wreck that is young "Indiana Jones" star Shia LaBeouf has been refreshing for its candor. We, the public, are used to a celebrity-publicist-consumers trifecta that downplays, obfuscates and outright lies when it comes to their naughty behavior. Exhibit A: Britney. Exhibit B: Lindsay. Exhibit C: Chris Brown. Exhibit D: Paris.

Study Finds Scars Make Men Sexier

While my Jewish grandmother could probably give you a bunch of different reasons why I’m still single, researchers from the Universities of Liverpool and Stirling think they’ve solved my problem. Last week, The Frisky’s resident cutie pie, Catherine, asked us to confess what turns us on. Here’s what I admitted:“I love a ma…

First Time For Everything: Dating A Good Guy

I have dated losers of all stripes. Degenerate gamblers, pathological liars, cheaters, guys who can’t get it up, nymphomaniacs, older guys, younger guys, short guys, out of shape guys, steroid-pumping in-shape guys, musicians, baby daddies and waiters. I even had a brief affair with a Voice Over Artist. Yes, in a world where you can’t…

Disney Shows Get Girls Interested In Bad Boys Awfully Early

Last night I went to dinner with a friend and her adorable four-and-a-half year old daughter Eva. I was pleasantly mortified to discover that Eva and I shared the same taste in music -- we're both really into Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana. I swear, as I get older, my taste in music gets more…

My So-Called Life: We Still Love The Way Jordan Catalano Leans

One of the greatest gifts I got this holiday was the My So-Called Life complete box set. In case you weren't part of the show's demographic during its unjustly short lifespan (one amazing, wonderful season), here's a synopsis: the show follows 15-year old Angela Chase as she tries to make it through life at her…
