Those of us with with a uterus know what it’s like to be desperate for a heating pad to ease the writhing, stabbing pain from menstruation cramps. It turns out, we could go for a little more relief directly at the source — by way of Korea, there now exist heated panty liners. The blog British Beauty Blogger posted pictures of the pad, which her friend picked up on a trip to Japan. She said the package contains a “heated sachet,” which gets very hot and is not to be worn “directly in contact with your nethers.” I guess it’s not so much a “heated panty liner” as a heated object you wear it underneath a panty liner? Either way, the whole concept of a heated panty liner seems similar to stuffing those handwarmers that people put in their mittens down your panties.
If any Frisky readers speak Korean, I would love a translation on the packaging of what I think are the suggested uses for a heated panty linter because half of them don’t make any sense from the pictures. Skiing? Sitting on a chair? Holding a baby? I don’t even want to risk any burns on my vag and/or inner thighs, so my only suggested use is laughing at this.

I always knew that boys were kind of gross. But it’s apparently worse than I thought: a Latvian designer has created a built-in sink on urinals to encourage more men to wash their hands after peeing.
According to a study by Michigan State University, 15 percent of men don’t wash their hands at all after handling their sweaty junk, compared with only seven percent of women. These icky icksters then go touch your elevator buttons, bus poles, and salad tongs at Whole Foods. The study also found that only one in 20 people wash their hands long enough to kill dangerous germs after using the facilities. Norovirus for everybody! Keep reading »

I don’t know about y’all, but ever since I upgraded my iPhone 4S to the new iOS 6 update, the battery has been hastily dying with every iHoroscope and Instagram fix. Feeling mine and millions of other women’s wireless woes, Chicagoan Liz Ormesher Salcedo created the Everpurse, a small clutch that actually charges your phone when placed into a side pocket.

Silly toys may be child’s play, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t big business. Here are 11 of the dumbest items that, in the hands of children, turned into pure gold for the people who sold them.
These goofy wristbands are just silicone rubber, formed into shapes. That’s it. A pack of 24 sells for around $5 and was invented by Robert Croak, who told CBS news in 2010, “I definitely feel like I’m one of the luckiest men alive.” Seeing that this invention has led to a fortune estimated at $15 million, we’d say that sounds about right.
