Holiday shopping is taxing on your energy and your bank account. You create a list, check it once, and are satisfied that you’ve crossed everyone off your list. Then you check it twice and realize you may have forgotten someone. Or even worse, you start to second guess who should be on your list in the first place! What about your regular booty call? You’ve been hooking up with for three months but don’t formally date — does he get a gift? Should you bring a gift for cousin Pat? If so, do you have to add his frosty girlfriend to your list? Uh, and hostess gifts … how many holiday parties are you attending this year?
Before you panic and blow tons of cash on personalized “Star Trek” action figures for everyone you know, check out our “Should You Give ___ A Xmas Gift?” flowchart. If anyone gives you grief for not buying them a gift this year, you can blame us.
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.

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 »
