The 6 Types Of Wedding Dates

There is a reason why I prefer to go to weddings solo — for fear that I will bring numbers one through five as my date. I enjoy bringing my self respect as my plus one and dancing until I no longer have any. [Buzzfeed]

Flowchart: Which Fairy Tale Villainess Are You?

Some of the most interesting characters in classic fairy tales (many of which have been translated into Disney films) are the “evil” queens, sorceresses, and crones who are at odds with the precious heroines. For example, in the upcoming film, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Charlize Theron’s evil Queen Ravenna is so delightfully dark yet…

The 6 Types Of Attraction

Seriously, I wish someone would have taught me about the six types of attraction way earlier in my life. Like when I was nine. So I would have known the difference between my Squishes and my Crushes. It would have saved me so much trouble. I think I am going to start referring to all…

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s A Total Hipster Dude In His New Movie

For the record, the upcoming movie “Premium Rush” — about what appears to be parody of a bike messenger — looks kind of terrible. But it stars My Fantasy Dream Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt, so I’ll have to watch it on DVD eventually. But here’s a breakdown of his hipster tendencies in the movie (and hey,…

Jew Polish

That’s polish (as in nail), not Polish (as in from Poland). Although this fictional nail polish line is inspired by the best Polish treats NYC’s Russ & Daughters has to offer.  I think I’ll do Lox & Load on my toes and Babka Streisand on my fingers. Also, there needs to be a color inspired…

The Seahorses Are On To Something

Right about now, I’m wishing I were a seahorse. Their mating/reproduction/parenting model sounds absolutely ideal and egalitarian. You lay the eggs, he carries the babies and you take care of him while he’s knocked up. I could be down for this setup. Can we make this happen for humans? [Buzzfeed]

Winona and I agree: Nail polish remover isn’t always the best at, you know, actually removing nail polish. Instead, we’ve found that your average quotidian activities like oh, typing, sleeping and zipping up zippers will do the job for you just fine.

Flowchart: What Kind Of Vibrator Do You Need?

One of the perks of my job at The Frisky is I get sent a lot of vibrators. This is great, as I avidly practice self-love and think every woman needs to have a vibrator. But with so many vibes on the market — seriously, there are tonssssss – how’s a gal to choose? This flowchart…

Anatomy Of An Amazing News Item: Shakira And The Impetuous Sea Lion

It’s another one of those stories. You know, the kind where the math doesn’t quite add up so you have to make a special visual equation to figure it out. Today, we found out that Shakira was nearly attacked by a wild sea lion while on an aquatic mammal tour in Cape Town, South Africa.
