Girl Talk: I Should Have Dumped My High School Boyfriend

If you were porking someone the weeks leading up until Freshman Orientation and using the L-word, chances are you are “doing the long-distance thing” at college. And chances are a sizable percentage of your brain is elsewhere, when it should be focused on making new friends, pitching a column to the school newspaper, and discovering…

What Outfit Earned Lady Gaga A Detention In High School?

Given Lady Gaga’s extravagant outfits, we’re at the point where we expect nothing less from her sartorially than innovative get-ups and out-there styles. But she wasn’t always the crazy queen of fashion that we know (and love) today. Back when she was in high school at New York City’s Convent of the Sacred Heart, fashio…

High School Boys Busted For Creating A Fantasy Sex League

Oh, high school, I don’t miss you one little bit.

Last summer, virgins students at the all-boys Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland, organized a “fantasy sex league” where they could earn points for bedding certain girls, The Washington Post reports. The boys planned to “draft” girls they knew onto teams, throw a serie…

Girl Talk: What Happened On Prom Night

I shouldn’t even have gone to prom with Bryan. Just a couple of weeks prior he had made out with another girl and told me the purple marks on his neck came from soccer. Like the lovefool that I was, I believed him — until his best friend tattled on him over Instant Messenger. Oh,…

At An NYC Private School, Gossip Girls Take On Project Runway

Here’s what you get for paying $30K+ to attend a posh NYC private school: an awesome fashion elective and exposure of your designs by the New York Times.

Girl Talk: Why I Wore A Playboy Bunny T-Shirt In High School

There’s a period of time in high school that I’m not particularly proud of and, remarkably, it’s not the time I wore sparkly blue nail polish to prom: it’s when I wore my Playboy Bunny T-shirt. I’d half-forgotten about that thing until I read Playboy is selling official “Playboy Bunny costumes” in honor of their

How Did You Get Out Past Curfew? The Frisky Shares Our Sneakiest Stories

Being a teenager totally sucked. But it especially sucked when my parents arbitrarily made up rules. Some nights they were whatevs about a curfew, but other nights they’d randomly say “be home by midnight!” or “be home by 11!” Inconsistent parenting like that was very, very frustrating — especially since I was basically good kid…

Mississippi School Cancels Prom Over Lesbian Date

Mississippi’s Itawamba County School District has decided it would rather cancel an entire high school prom than host one where a lesbian student can wear a tuxedo and bring a female date. The district announced the prom was off after the ACLU pressured it to change its policy and allow Constance McMillen, 18, to bring…

“Meep!” It’s The New Word That Could Get A Kid Suspended

“Meep?” “Meep!” “Meep, meep, meep, meep, meep.” What the heck did I just say? Maybe Beaker’s friend, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, knows. The principal of Dancers High School in Massachusetts had no idea what the nonsensical Muppet-word meant, either. That old fuddy-duddy threatened his students with suspension after administrators learned of a dastardly plan for a…

Boys In Skirts, Girls In Tuxes—What’s A High School Principal To Do?

Depending on what kind of high school you attended and what part of the country you grew up in, you’re probably well aware of school dress codes: no miniskirts, no baseball hats, no gang colors, etc. But some kids who are challenging their dress code aren’t just trying to flash a skimpy thong to get…

The Most Popular Kids At Hollywood High!

Last week, 15-year-old Dakota Fanning was crowned the Homecoming Princess of Crespi Carmelite High School after cheering at the game with the other Viking cheerleaders. This is weird for a couple of reasons: because she goes to an actual high school and because she is still only 15. Also, isn’t she too busy being a…

Everyone From High School Is In The Tabloids!

Imagine you are sitting in your high school English class. On your right sits Mischa Barton, soon to star on a show called the OC. On your left sits Alexandra Daddario, star on the soap opera All My Children. Behind you sits Tell Carlson, male supermodel and star of Christian Dior’s 2004 spring and summer…

Mom Charged With Changing 200+ Grades For Daughter

Talk about being an overly-involved parent. Last week, mom Carolina McNeal was charged with hacking into a Pennsylvania high school’s computer system to make her daughter come out at the top of her class. Caroline worked as the school’s secretary, and used other people’s passwords to change four years worth of grades, test scores, and…

Sexist Principal Mandates “Pants For Boys, Dresses For Girls!”

Chelsea Sarvis, a senior at South Carolina’s Chapin High School, wants to wear pants to her graduation. But according to Principal Mike Satterfield (surprise, surprise, it’s a male), unless she wears a dress, she won’t be attending. That’s right—if she doesn’t conform to what I thought were antiquated stereotypes and flaunt a “feminine” frock, she…

Katy Perry Fans Get Persecuted

While some of us may kiss girls and like it, the principal of Van High School in Texas doesn’t even like the idea set to song. Three members of the school spirit twirling team were suspended from performing after they did a routine to Katy Perry’s #1 hit, “I Kissed A Girl”, at a pe…

High School Girls In MA Want To Get Pregnant

Most sexually active teen girls probably live in fear of the day they miss their period, but a group of high schoolers in Massachusetts all decided to get pregnant and raise their babies together — 17 of them succeed, and one was even knocked up by a 24-year-old homeless man, according to Gloucester High School’…

The Daily Squeeze: Hated Celebs, HIV Infections, And Homosexuality In Nature

In a survey by Marketing magazine in the U.K., the top five most loved celebrities were all men, while the top four most hated celebrities were women. Why Victoria Beckham is on this list, we have no idea. Just watch her in one of our favorite interviews ever. [BBC]…

A Secret Rendez-Vous Gone Wrong

An 18-year-old boy in Texas thought he was being all stealth, sneaking into his girlfriend’s house for a surprise hook-up. Instead, he got two black eyes from her father, who thought he was a burglar, and was charged with burglary and assault. The funny part is that his girlfriend (who is 15, by the way)…

The Daily Squeeze: Smart Women, Prom Trouble, And Sex Addiction

In a survey of 2,000 German women, 62 percent of those who had completed their education said they often had problems achieving orgasms, while only 38 percent of women with lower educational qualifications had this problem. Apparently being smart, or at least being really into school, is a sexual liability. [The Sun, U.K.]

Tampa Teachers Get Punished

In the past two weeks alone, three female teachers in Tampa, FL, have been arrested for having sex with their students — sadly proving even women can be totally perverted pedophiles. The first bust was a 28-year-old middle school math teacher, Stephanie Regusa, who added a 14-year-old boy, divided his legs, then got herself subtracted…
