Today’s Lady News: MTV’s New iCondom App Helps You Find Places To Buy Condoms

Today's Lady News
  • MTV’s Staying Alive HIV prevention campaign partnered up with iCondom for a new iPhone app that allows users to search via GPS for places to buy condoms. While I commend MTV commitment to promoting safe sex, I also think it’s stupid to make it seem to adolescents that condoms are hard to find. You can get them at nearly every pharmacy, grocery store, big box store, and even gas station. [Clutch Magazine]

Cross-Stitch Your Phone Sitch

It’s Get A Hobby Week here on The Frisky, so today we’re craving something to do that produces something we can keep. Oh, perfect, how about this cross-stitch iPhone case and kit?! Pick the color case you want and it comes complete with needle, thread, and some design templates you can use. Alternatively, if you were one of those kids who always had to color outside the lines (freak!), you can create your own custom design using your imagination. Fun!

Crap You Don’t Need: Jelly Belly Scented iPhone Case

Something new to file under “Crap You Don’t Need”: techies can now choose what their smartphone will smell like. ESI Cases is selling five new cases, each scented like a different flavor of Jelly Belly jelly beans — Strawberry Cheesecake, Very Cherry, Blueberry, Berry Blue and Licorice. The cases sell for $15 a pop and are available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and Blackberry. Honestly, I wouldn’t want my iPhone case to smell like any of these flavors because then I’d be constantly craving sugar. But Marc Jacobs perfume? Fresh figs? Jasmine? I could dig it. If you had a scented smartphone case, what would you want it to smell like? [Gizmodo] Keep reading »

YWCA’s “Safety Siren” iPhone App Sends An S.O.S. Message For Help On A Sketchy Date

Ten years ago, when I was 17, I got into a car with a young guy I barely knew who was a customer at my job. We drove deep into the woods, parked his car, and got stoned. Bryan* eventually became my boyfriend, but I often think back to that night when I went off with a strange guy — and more than a few other nights like it — that could have gone wrong. I’ve always been a risk-taker, but, knock on wood, all the risks I took when I maybe should have heeded some “stranger danger” have turned out safe. But I know not every guy or girl is so lucky and this is how date rape and other acts of violence happens.

Could smartphones help keep people safe on dates, at parties and during risk-taking adventures? An app from the YMCA YWCA in Canada called “Siren Safety” thinks it just might. Keep reading »

iAugment App Shows How Your Boobs Would Look After Breast Implants

Wondering what would your breasts look like if they were bigger? There’s an app for that! iAugment is a Photoshop-style iPhone app that uses a 3D pic of your chest to show you how you’d look with bigger jigglies. iAugment allows you to view 17 different breast implant sizes — from “Blake Lively goes softcore” to “Sheyla Hershey circus boobs.” (Just kidding, they’re not really called that.) Created by plastic surgeon Elizabeth Kinsley from New Orleans, the iAugment app claims to help women decide if they really want a boob job. In reality, I think we all know that 14-year-old boys every adult man we know is going to digitally play with their lady friend’s boobs on iAugment ad nauseum. Amiright, boys?
