“It’s really awesome for me that you’re not obsessed with showering every day,” my new boyfriend remarked recently. I looked at him somewhat surprised. “Well, then I don’t have to either,” he explained.
See, I’m a “shower every other day” kind of girl, with the occasional whore’s bath thrown in when necessary. It’s not something I’ve typically advertised to the men I’ve dated over the last few years and I doubt they’ve noticed since I’ve taken care to groom before dates and whatnot. But with M. living out of town and coming to visit for days at a time, our mutual grooming habits have been obvious and, it seems, in sync. Keep reading »

I’m going to introduce a new little game around here. Let’s call it: “Guess the Publication.” I’ll post a quote and you guess which major print or online publication it’s pulled from. Sound fun? Good. Here’s the first one:
“A woman needs to come up with a workable routine for maintaining her looks throughout her lifetime and avoid rationalizing slacking off— while she’s seeking a man and after she has one. Yeah, you might have to put five or ten extra minutes into prettying up just to hang around the house. And, sure, you might be more ‘comfortable’ in big sloppy sweats, but how ‘comfortable’ will you be if he leaves you for a woman who cares enough to look hot for him?”

Ever wear the same thing a couple days in a row? Claudia Schiffer does. Last week, she was spotted wearing the same outfit on Nov. 3 and 4 as she took her children to school. Now, there are number of reasons why someone would choose to wear the same clothes for two days — for instance, if they have a new baby at home (like Claudia), they’re required to wear a uniform for work, or they’re doing the walk of shame. I’ll admit to wearing the same bottoms or a sweater twice in a row, but I’ve never donned the same complete outfit, unless I’ve spent the night out, was getting a ride home, and planned to shower and dress in a completely different look later. I just wasn’t raised to believe wearing the same outfit two days or more in a row was acceptable. But now that the very American trend of bathing everyday is shifting, could it be time to reconsider how often we change our clothes, too? I’m not entirely convinced. Do you ever wear the same outfit two days in a row? [StyleList] Keep reading »
An interesting article out of Psychology Today about the fairly recent trend of bikini waxing and how it’s affecting male and female sexual relations. Sex therapist and psychiatrist Stephen Snyder, M.D. writes, “Among many young men that I see in treatment, the sight of a woman’s pubic hair produces the same revulsion that in my day might have greeted the sight of her armpit hair. Vulvar hair is regarded as unsightly — or even disgusting.” Yowza, seriously? I mean, in my years cavorting and conversating with the opposite sex, I have definitely noticed that dudes prefer some pubic grooming, with a solid percentage liking significant bush-wacking (landing strip, little triangle, etc.). Yes, there have definitely been a few dudes who liked a bald beav the most, but Snyder implies that men are increasingly preferring no hair whatsoever and find the presence of hair to be a complete turn-off. Please, gentleman readers of The Frisky, tell me you haven’t been so brainwashed by porn that you’re actually grossed out by pubes?
But Snyder also says that many women say the opinions of men aren’t why they spend upwards of $75 per session to have hot wax spread on their ladyparts. “‘You’re missing the point,’ say the waxing enthusiasts. ‘We do it because the result is worth it. Better sensation. Better sex.’” Keep reading »
Oh, science, we love you! Why? Because some bunch of pervy scientists decided that studying the pubic hair-grooming habits of women was somehow a viable scientific pursuit. A new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine examined the pubic particulars of women. The findings: “Women reported a diverse range of pubic hair-grooming practices.” No duh. Keep reading »
