Ben Carson claimed in his 1990 memoir Gifted Hands that he met Gen. William Westmoreland in 1969, when Carson was 17 and Westmoreland had just finished leading the US forces in Vietnam, and that soon after Carson was offered a full scholarship to West Point. Well, it turns out the West Point part is not… More »
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump (the five worst words in the world, there) has turned his sights briefly away from appraising Carly Fiorina’s looks and taking digs at the other male Republican contenders to focus on what really matters — spouting horse dung about Hillary Clinton.
First, at a rally in South Carolina,… More »
When the news broke about Brian Williams having lied about his helicopter having been nearly shot down while he was covering the Iraq war, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was there to tear him to shreds with a searing monologue about how important it is for the fourth estate to, you know, not lie about… More »
There is only one Amelia McDonell-Parry on Planet Earth. Do a Google search for my name and the first page of results turn up links to my writing — much of it about sex and dating on The Frisky — as well as a highly ridiculous and random Google group discussion post claiming that I… More »
Pregnancy is such a magical and wonderful time in a woman’s life — but it’s pretty safe to say that some aspects of it are definitely easier than others.

The results of Ask Men’s 2013 Great Male Survey are in, and as always, it’s fun to pour over the details of what the “average, American man” really thinks about stuff like the institution of marriage, pre-stalking dates, anal sex, and, of course, penis size. Sigh. Penises always seem make it on the survey. After… More »

Ah, women. So mysterious! So enigmatic! We have more layers than an onion. And men, poor, poor men. Left to figure us out all on their own. Sorry! We don’t mean to be confusing. We just are. While many of us strive to be honest, truthful, and forthright, we do not always tell the truth. That is the… More »
A couple of years ago, we told you about Jessica Vega, the New York woman who lied about having leukemia — to her own fiance even — in order to score a free wedding.

Okay, so sometimes we fib a little bit when we’re dating a guy. Not about the big stuff — like our name or what we do for a living. It’s not that we mean to be dishonest, it’s just that our politeness, insecurity or desire to dazzle get in the way of the truth. And… More »
Research has indicated that as much as 90 percent of people lie in their online dating profiles. Women in their 20s and 30s slyly deduct anywhere from five to 20 lbs. from their weight, while men tend to lie about income, education level and, yes, relationship status. Yikes.

Lie detector tests get a bad rep, perhaps because they’re unwieldy, not that accurate, and the province of “Jerry Springer” and “Maury Povich”-type talk shows. But British researchers have been working on a new type of polygraph lie detector, one that could be used more consistently for security and law enforcement purposes. It’s a video… More »
