Here ye, here ye! We, the women of The Frisky, hereby decree that blowjobs should last no longer than seven minutes. Why seven minutes you ask? Men, let us do you a favor and explain why. Keep reading »

This month has been a big one for public masturbation. A Cosmopolitan blogger wrote about her attempt to masturbate clandestinely on the NYC subway. Spoiler: her session ended with a gyro, not an orgasm. Meanwhile in Sweden … a 65-year-old man who openly pleasured himself on a beach in Stockholm was acquitted because his masturbation was not directed at a specific person. Meaning, it is now considered ”okay” to masturbate in public in Sweden, provided the act does not target another individual. So you can masturbate to the ocean, but not to the woman wearing the string bikini. Got that? We fear that all of this public masturbation hoopla will just further confuse about people about the appropriate times and places to pleasure themselves. That’s why we made this handy flowchart to help you make sure you’re in a safe space to wank.
James Franco is not the most popular cat around The Frisky offices. We even coined a saying for when someone sends you too many links about Franco’s latest annoying antics, catching you off guard and ruining your day: “I’ve been Franco-ed.” (Everyone knows not to Franco Julie when she has a migraine. Not a good combo.) Being Franco-ed is the worst.
But, really, it hasn’t always been that way. In fact, my emotional reactions to the existence of James Franco have come full circle. I imagine it is the same for most of you (don’t lie). Look, I even made an infographic! Let’s review… Keep reading »
Happy Schooled Week! After you get over the initial thrill of returning to class, the fun part begins — figuring out just how much you can get away with. Like, do you really need to make every session of that 8 a.m. politics seminar? Maybe. But maybe not. We’ve put together this comprehensive flowchart to help you figure out just which classes you can skip and which ones are totally necessary.
Deodorant is a decidedly unglamorous topic as far as beauty products go. Is it even a beauty product? I suppose it’s more of, like, a necessary hygiene product than anything. (Or not necessary, I don’t know. You do you, babes, just maybe try not to sit next to me on the subway in August.) But any deodorant I’ve ever purchased from the drugstore — your standard Secret, Dove, Mitchum, what have you — has left me less than convinced, thanks to some combination of yellowing marks (which actually are not a byproduct of sweat alone, but a reaction caused by the chemicals in most traditional deodorants) and just smelling so gross, like super-pungent fake fruits and flowers that are eventually forced to commingle with your natural scent. There’s also the fact that the aluminum in deodorant has been linked to cancer, but hasn’t everything? My interest in finding a more natural alternative may not have been driven by health reasons (I also smoke, sleep with my cell phone directly next to my head, and eat meat on average five times a week), but it was driven nonetheless! I tried these four natural deodorants over the course of a week-long New York City heat wave, which I truly believe to be the most telling test there is. Find out where to purchase these picks, after the jump… Keep reading »
A cold, hard statistic to swallow: one in three women around the world age 15 and older has suffered abuse at the hands of a partner, according to a new study. The journal Science collated 141 studies from 81 countries around the world and found that 30 percent of women have experienced a physical or sexual attack from an intimate partner. Of course, we so often don’t see the how widespread violence against women can be because victims are fearful and ashamed to come forward. If you or someone you know needs support for dealing with intimate partner violence, you can contact RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) or the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

We’ve been all about Michael Shannon this week, after his hilariously spot on reading of the mean sorority girl letter. Shannon sits at the intersection of both creepy and hot. It’s very confusing! Like maybe we’ll make out, and then he’ll send me threatening letters in the mail? But Shannon’s not the only one: There are plenty of celebrity dudes who straddle that fine line between being super sexy and total creepazoids. While others? Oh, they’re just creepy. We’ve created this by-no-means comprehensive hot-to-creepy meter. Tell us who else should be on it, and where they might fall on the creepy/hot continuum. Click here to see an enlarged image!
I’m heading to Portland this week, and me and Winona have plans to get brunch. Do you get brunch? It’s practically an Olympic sport in Brooklyn and, says Winona, Portland. There’s the waiting, and the outfits, and the hangovers and the drinking and eating. So much stuff goes into brunch! Brunch, brunch, brunch! As such, I’ve created a pie chart, delineating about how brunch typically goes, in case you feel like you’re missing out.
Oh, how I do love a good infographic! This one from Maria Popova’s blog Exp.lore.com is clever: it shows each how women have been elected to higher office in each state throughout history. U.S. Representatives, U.S. Senators and Governors are represented by a different color, which then mix together in a rainbow of colors if the particular state has a bunch of women in different branches. This infographic is pre-2012 election data — us ladies won big, so there are some more states that should be pink! — but it’s still nevertheless a fascinating way to display the info. [Exp.lore.com]
You didn’t know you had a dessert stomach, did you? Well, you don’t. But it would come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner if you did. I mean, where are you supposed to put the pumpkin pie after you’ve eaten so much stuffing? Sigh. I guess we’ll just have to eat less so there’s room for dessert. Boo! You can see other secret body parts you wish you had here. I could really use an infinite mucus sinus, I’m telling you. [College Humor]
