The Soapbox: Hating On Social Media Is Trendy, But It’s Also Wrong

It seems like lots of people lately wax poetic about the good old days before we were all staring at computer screens. Take, for example, the popularity of the “Look Up” spoken word video. I hear these complaints from mostly people my age, maybe a bit older, so we’re not that far apart in our…

Tights On Tap

As we settle deeper into fall and winter, it’s inevitably time to take stock of your tights options. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a rather extensive collection of somewhat ratty, ripped and worn out stockings in dire need of replacement. And that’s why I’m so happy that there’s a new service, for people…

FoodSexVideo.com: Cooking For Hot Girls

I can’t speak for the rest of The Frisky staff, but my own cooking skills are fairly limited. (And by “fairly limited” I mean eggs and pasta are about the extent of it.) It’s not that I’m not interested in learning how to cook, it’s more the fact that most of my hobbie…

But this Friday, the uber-bronze designer is changing all that by giving her fashion-crazy fans the opportunity to ask her questions online. Immediately after the Versace show, she’ll plop herself down in front of a video camera and respond in real time to querie…

Hipster Puppies Are, Like, Much Cooler Than You

From squeezing into jeans skinnier than any person should ever wear to looking like you totally don’t give a crap about anything and constantly searching out appropriately ironic accessories, being a hipster takes effort. Now imagine doing all of the above without opposable thumbs or the ability to sigh in mock, all-encompassing boredom. Challenging? Hell…

Watch Fashion Shows From The Comfort Of Your Couch

As of today, Fashion Week is officially underway, but with the snow and cold temperatures, getting around in New York City is simply treacherous. This weather makes you want to sit on your couch in PJs and catch up on daytime television, doesn’t it? Thankfully, 12 designers (so far!) have plans to embrace the internet…

eBay Joins The Online Sample Sale Craze

My inbox is inundated with sample sales — from Gilt Groupe, Editor’s Closet, The Clothing Line, and Daily Candy’s updates. But now there’s one more to add to the list of tempting sales. eBay must feel left out, because they just launched their very own online shopping section. Their Fashion Vault opened with goodies from…

Porn Stars Up In Arms That Production Companies Are Going Plotless

Not that pornos are exactly known for their profound plot lines, but as more people prefer to get off online, “scripts” and “acting” in porn videos and DVDs are being replaced by more raunchtastic sex. In probably the lamest complaint ever, porn stars are whining that adult video production companies are losing the storyline by…

He Said/She Said: A Guide To Flirting 2.0

Sure, the Web has made many aspects of our lives easier, but it’s also complicated a few things — specifically, how we date, flirt and meet potential love interests. And while the date movie du jour, “He’s Just Not That Into You,” may seem a few years behind, we’ve pulled together a helpful up-to-date guide…

How Much Chick TMI Is Too Much Chick TMI?

In “The Great Girlie Gross-Out,” Salon’s Rebecca Traister takes a look at the online phenomenon in which women, mostly young women, share intimate things about themselves that others may or may not want to know. The most notorious offenders include Moe Tkacik’s tale of a wayward tampon, Tracie Egan’s ongoing urinary tract infection problems, and…

Social Networking More Popular Than Pornography?

Shocker! According to recent research, social networking is more popular than pornography. “Data geek” Bill Tancer says online searches for adult content have dropped by 10-percent, and social networking is what’s hot. You mean real people are looking to interact with real people? Maybe the internet isn’t so bad after all.

The Frisky Wedding Gift Guide: Only Online

ZOMG! It’s wedding season! You know what that means? If you’re getting married, you’ve got to register for gifts and if you’re going to a wedding (or many weddings, as these things tend to come in droves), you’ve got to start purchasing. Most wedding registries are done online these days, but not everyone registers at…

Monks Macking Online

The Thai government is investigating claims that Buddhist monks are using the social networking website hi5 to flirt with women. Buddhist monks are supposed to be celibate, and even refrain from most contact with women, so this is majorly against the rules. “We urge people who use the site to tell monks to leave,” Chakrapo…
