For years, Hawaii was the happiest place in the country, but this time around, another state has ranked at #1. According to Gallup’s Well-Being Index, 2013′s happiest state was — drumroll — North Dakota. The Well-Being Index factors in various aspects of life, like work environments, health, and basic access to food, water and medical care. The closer to 100 a state’s score is, the higher its residents’ quality of life. North Dakota scored a 70.4, followed by South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Montana. I’m just as surprised as you are. States in the Midwest and West fared best on the wellbeing scale, while the South scored the lowest. The most sadface of states, weighing in with a score of 61.4, is West Virginia — for the fifth year in a row. Bummer. Keep reading »
This morning, I happened to stumble upon a CNN photo gallery of children partaking in a MMA fight … in a cage. Participants as young as age five are allowed to compete in the Thunderdome, where “they punch, kick, tackle and choke each other,” with their hands and feet.
I asked myself, “How many parents would actually let their kids do this?” The answer: a lot. Keep reading »
This may come as a shock to you, but life-sized vaginas and costumes of fictional characters receiving fellatio are considered poor taste.
While I personally feel private parts and oral sex are just dandy in their natural forms, it’s different when a human adult is parading around town with his massive labia on display for all to see (even if he says he’s just a man in a boat).
So here we are. We’re down to the final two WTF?! Halloween Costumes in our battle, and the last duel is between “Little Man in a Canoe” and “Down For The Count.” Keep reading »
A new Vanity Fair/”60 Minutes” poll surveyed American adults about the qualities they look for in an ideal woman. And, by George, we’ve got one: she’s a “bold and experienced” “good mother” who hates the movie “Fatal Attraction,” doesn’t smoke, and is a doctor. But don’t feel bad if that doesn’t describe you … because it doesn’t describe most of us.
Here’s a closer look at the stats so you know exactly what you should be like, if you want to make a bunch of random people who read Vanity Fair and/or watch “60 Minutes” like you:

We shared the contents of our dirty little minds on Tuesday, inspired by the hilarious new movie “The To Do List,” starring the fantastic Aubrey Plaza, so now it’s time for you to let us know what’s on your list. Is it a new place, a new position, or just finally following through with that person you’ve had your eye on since winter? Whatever it may be, cast your vote in our poll and sound off in the comments about what you’ll be putting on your sexual to-do list this summer!
What's On Your To-Do List?

- New Positions Or Kinks: Role playing, the Kama Sutra, light bondage, in front of a mirror, spanking -- I want to try it all (48%, 222 Votes)
- New Places: Behind a waterfall, on the beach, in the woods while camping, under the stars in your backyard, on the hood of a car -- anywhere with a flat surface works. (0%, 169 Votes)

It’s not yet Memorial Day, the traditional time when it’s apparently okay to wear white again. Where or how this stupid tradition began, I don’t know, but I do know that I’ve been completely indoctrinated into it, and won’t wear white before the end of may. Fine, I’m a weirdo (also, I will totally get anything white dirty, quick). But there’s a ton of celeb ladies who are eschewing the old ways, and freely flaunting white gowns and dresses. Just last week, in fact, we saw Michelle Rodriguez, Chloe Sevigny, Joely Richardson, Mariska Hargitay and Julianne Hough all stepping out in gleaming white. But who wore it best? You tell us!

It should come as no surprise that for all the obsessing we do about Ryan Gosling, baby pandas, Grumpy Cat, Karl Lagerfeld, Chavril and the endless array of Be My Boyfriend candidates, The Frisky is most inspired by the work of the many rad women we look up to. There are so many pop culture heavyweights and high-powered newsmakers who show us how its done and inspire us with their achievements every day. Naturally, of course, we each have our favorites. With that in mind, each Frisky staff member was tasked with choosing and submitting their favorite rad and inspiring woman — okay, a few of us got to pick two — for nomination, along with a photo of herself and a blurb about why they chose the woman they did.
And now we want you to vote for your favorite of the 10 women we’ve chosen.
The poll will remain open for two weeks — until April 22 — and, at that time, the woman with the most votes will become, effectively, our Rad & Inspiring Woman of the Year.
So what do you say? Will you tell us who you love, too? Vote now! Keep reading »
It’s time for another round of “You Choose It, We Write It,” in which we pit two ingenious topics from the Content Idea Generator against each other and let readers choose which story they want to see on The Frisky. This week, we’re heading in a slightly nerdier direction — let me know what you want me to write by voting below!
Did you vote on Election Day? I hope so — if not, you have no excuse, because even the very famous and very busy managed to make it to the polls. After the jump, a few of the celebs who were snapped casting their ballots. And look at that, they’re just like us: they came dressed in sweatpants and flannels too!
