Raise your hand if you were surprised that Kim Kardashian got a facial from her own blood. Grossed out? Yes. Surprised? No. Because Kim’s syringe-wielding skincare routine was just the latest example in a Kardashian family past time: playing with their own body fluids. This family will have none of your conventions of “taste” or “hygiene.” Strap on your latex gloves and join me for a stroll down memory lane.
These “Splatter Sneakers” from Shopbop are currently on sale for 50 bucks, but they were originally $170, which begs the question: who would pay almost $200 for a pair of Converse with red paint stains? Two answers come to mind: an abstract painter with a trust fund or a serial killer. I don’t like either of these choices.

Warning: for those who are squeamish about needles, blood, or both, this beauty treatment is definitely not for you. So please, carry on, and we’ll catch you later. For the “True Blood” lovers or facial-happy folks, prepared to be intrigued. The latest in anti-aging treatments, according to the Daily Mail, is what’s referred to as “Dracula Therapy,” where a doctor draws your blood, extracts minerals from it, and injects it back into the skin on your face with dozens of pricks. The supposed result? Disappearance of fine lines, improvement of skin tone, and rejuvenated skin. Sounds like something straight out of a horror movie, right? Keep reading »
I am completely traumatized. This morning I went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist, expecting to just have the big shot doc shine a light up my nose and then merrily skip off to work. Oh, how wrong I was. After sticking something scary looking up my nose, my doctor declared, “Yep, we need to cauterize your nose.” WTF? I avoided science in college, so maybe I was mistaking cauterization for something else. He couldn’t mean that Medieval procedure where “doctors” burn your skin with a fire hot poker to stop excessive bleeding…could he? Well, that’s exactly what he meant. I tried reasoning with him. Surely a procedure I am sure I saw done in “Lord of the Rings,” was not the most modern or medically effective. My squeals for help went unregistered and the next thing I knew… Keep reading »
Sesame bagels are my favorite, and if I were a guy, eating them might help me in the sex department. That’s because sesame seeds are rich in the amino acid arginine, which is involved in making nitric oxide, a compound that enhances blood through arteries and even male body parts! More blood flow to certain appendages is a good thing. So, slip your man some sesame seeds (do you think the ones on top of hamburger buns count?) and see what happens — we just hope he doesn’t have a severe allergy like Ryan Phillipe’s character in Antitrust. Please tell me I’m not the only person who has seen this movie. [Parade] Keep reading »
Happy Hump Day! We here at The Frisky would like to salute the hump and its oh-so-important role in our lives. However, who you like to hump shouldnâ€™t dictate whose lives you can save. Unfortunately, the FDA doesnâ€™t agree. We were totally shocked when our gay boyfriend told us he couldn’t participate in a blood drive because of his sexual orientation! The FDA’s outdated blood donation policies exclude gay men or any man who has ever even fooled around with another guy since the late 70â€™s — so even a meaty mÃ©nage Ã trois could make you too gay for the FDA. Also by proxy, any woman who has hooked up with a bisexual or gay guy — umm, hi! — is also ineligible for blood donation for a year. Keep reading »
