Study: College-Aged Women Don’t Want To Be Friends With Sluts

Oh good, another depressing study about women and sex! Bring it on.

College-aged women would prefer not to be friends with promiscuous women (defined as having 20 or more sexual partners by their early 20s), even when they themselves have had numerous sexual partners or claim to have liberal views about sex. Thi…

Frisky Rant: Slut Shaming Doesn’t Have A Silver Lining

When I sat down to watch “Silver Linings Playbook,” I had high hopes. Friends whose opinions I respect loved the film and praise for her performance has made Jennifer Lawrence a front-runner for Best Actress in this year’s Oscar race. I’ve loved Lawrence since “Winter’s Bone” and I’m constantly amazed by her ability to play…

Adam Levine Calls Himself A “Promiscuous Bimbo”

“I’ve always felt a little misrepresented in the world. I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe I was kind of a bimbo … I was the dude that was naked all the time with girls, and that’s fine, no problem with…

Amanda Seyfried Only Gets Naked With Her Dog

“I’m terrified of being promiscuous. I don’t like the feeling you get when it’s not something that you truly want to do, and I hate the emotional abuse you give yourself afterward. It’s just uncomfortable when you’re with somebody and you’re like, ‘I don’t really know if I’m even comfortable with this. Why did I?

Soapbox: What’s Your Number? Here’s Why I Don’t Care

The previews for the Anna Faris vehicle “What’s Your Number?” couldn’t make me want to see that movie any less if they added “Exorcist”-style projectile vomiting. The premise, if you have magically managed to miss the media blitz, is that Faris’ character realizes her list of sexual partners has one more digit than most of her…

Monogamous Sex Is Best For Society, Says Conservative Dude

With so many points of clarifications that we could use from social conservatives — Single motherhood is bad! But so is abortion! — one would think The New York Times’ conservative columnist, Ross Douthat, would have plenty of rich, complicated topics to dig into. But in an op-ed column that ran yesterday, Douhat argued in

Politician Says Planned Parenthood Is “Invested In Promiscuity”

Some politicians are more concerned with your naughty bits than, oh, children from the wealthiest nation in the world who go to bed hungry and American soldiers being killed in Afghanistan. Take Representative Steve King (R-Iowa), for instance. Rep. King is one of the busybody pols trying to de-fund Planned Parenthood because it…

Dear Wendy: “How Many Sex Partners Is Too Many?”

Recently I was talking to my 21-year-old boyfriend about how many sexual partners was considered “too many.” I told him how there was a 21-year-old guy friend who says he’s had over 20 partners but they had each meant something to him so he didn’t see a problem with it; only when you have meaningle…

Scientists Have Identified The Slut Gene

No need to wonder any longer where you got your predilection for promiscuity. Turns out, it’s genetic (one or both of your parents is probably a slut too). According to a new study, there is a gene that predicts a tendency toward infidelity and one-night stands. Those who have “the slut gene,” as I am…

Can You Tell A Slut By What She’s Wearing?

Cue the eyeroll. A British celeb style website called MyCelebrityFashion polled men on their girlfriends’ clothes and asked, “What trends make women look promiscuous?” Because you can tell a slut by what she’s wearing, duh.

Brits Blame Promiscuity On Women’s Rights

A recent study found Britain to have more casual sex than any other Western nation. The study was conducted by asking more than 14,000 people in 48 countries to fill out anonymous questionnaires. Participants were asked about their number of partners and one-night stands, how many people they expected to sleep with in the next…

Love 101: Death Of The One-Night Stand?

Whether you agree with the sometimes tawdry, often, er, “illuminating” material that makes up the content of AskMen.com, you must also know that it is the largest men’s lifestyle destination on the internet. Every once in awhile, they do the Great Male Survey, which, given the vast numbers of participants, projects an arguably legitimate big…

Sound Bites: How Many Sexual Partners Is Too Many?

Whoopi Goldberg recently revealed on The View that she’s had 50 sexual partners. Carla Bruni, pop singer and wife to French president Nicolas Sarkozy, has had 30. And little ol’ me has had 15. The three of us are comfortable with our numbers — though I am not necessarily psyched about the dudes in particular…

Death To This Debate: What Makes A Person A Slut?

One of my most shameful moments as a person was in the fourth grade. I was fairly invisible within my class, but had a desperate desire to be liked. There was another girl in my class who also was not popular and was picked on fairly often for being a little grubby. One day, i…

Breaking Shocker: Drunk People Get Their Freak On

The crackerjack reporters at Reverend Moon’s UPI have unearthed quite the scoop:

Mitt Romney Implies God Made Man And Man Couldn’t Control His Boner

Admittedly, we’re not the most religiously educated group of folks on the internet, but maybe someone should take away Mitt Romney’s Book of Mormon and give him a good hard spanking with it. An ABC News blogger notes that while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Romney pointed out the large leaves in a…
