We slather on tons of lotions and potions in order to get our skin glowing and gorgeous — and apparently women have been doing this since the beginning of time. Just ask Cleopatra’s eyeliner applier. But in the 1950s and ’60s, beauty treatments took a strangely Draconian turn. Our friends at Collectors Weekly dug up some of the most bizarre beauty devices from the era. We want to see if you can guess what women might have used them for. Take our quiz above!
Let’s kick this Monday off with a little game, shall we? Can you identify the famous female celeb … from behind? (Don’t worry, we are nothing if not equal opportunity objectifiers/brain teasers — the guy version is coming later this week!)
Who do you think knows more about pop culture — Chevy Chase or Joel McHale? Find out by watching this special pop culture quiz, in which two teams made up of the cast of “Community” attempt to answer rather difficult pop culture questions. (By the way, anybody remember the name of Arsenio Hall’s fat rapper alter ego?) It’s team Karate Dog vs. The Hilarious Hive on Jive Featuring Eldrige Cleaver (hey, their name not ours) in an all-out battle. [NYMag.com]
Food and sex, the two greatest sensual pleasures in life. And the way we speak of them is so similar: how many times have you referred to chocolate mousse as “orgasmic”? I can’t be the only one you feels this way about things I put in my mouth. (Some things, you pervert.) So I decided to put together a fun little game for Frisky readers: here are 10 celebs talking about two of life’s pleasures — cooking or nookie — but with key words omitted from each quote. It’s up to you, dear reader, to figure out what they’re talking about.
And yes, on the slide about Snooki, I do make a joke about Italian sausages. Enjoy!
For those of you who enjoy getting your cook on, you know that kitchen gadgets and sex toys are hard to tell apart. In honor of Get Bitchin’ In The Kitchen week, we’ve prepared a fun little quiz for you. Click through and see if you can guess if each item is a sex toy or a kitchen utensil.
My standard response to reading the vast majority of sex advice printed in Cosmopolitan: “Oh, come ON!” I don’t think I could come up with more ridiculous sex advice if I … oh hell, I’ll give it a shot. In this quiz, each slide contains a piece of advice that either appeared in the pages of Cosmo or was pulled from the ass of a Frisky staff member. Can you tell the REAL Cosmo advice from the sex tips we just made up? (Answers revealed on the slide that follows and so on…) Tell us how you did on my little quiz and then feel free to share your own ridiculous and potentially dangerous FAKE Cosmo advice in the comments.
In a relationship and looking to inject a little extra oomph in the romance department? Before we can dole out the advice in our Couple Time section (sponsored by “Romantication” at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona), we’ve got to narrow down what type of couple you are first. Take our quiz to find out whether you and your boo are “Strangers in the Night,” “A Rollercoaster Ride,” “Married … With Children,” “Comfy Cohabitators,” or “Everything Is Magic.” (If it’s the latter, we’ll try not to hate you.) Click here to take the quiz! Keep reading »
Do your friends marvel at your discipline to be at the gym EVERY morning at 6 a.m.? Or is your favorite exercise move texting? (C’mon it has to burn some calories, right?) Maybe you’ve become addicted to fitness gizmos ever since you tried out your mom’s Thighmaster in the 8th grade … or you’re nursing the tennis elbow you got from playing Wii Fit (who woulda thunk it?). What’s your fitness style? After the jump, take our quiz and find out if you’re a Workout Warrior, Gym Rat … or just Loving Your Lady Lumps. Keep reading »
If you’re still having trouble deciding what your summer song is going to be this year (I’m going with a song called “Moves” by The New Pornographers), there’s this cool quiz on BuzzFeed that can help you figure it out. Of course, if you don’t neatly fit a specific stereotype, it may be a little harder to get a perfect match. When asked, I said I’d wear side-swept bangs over combat boots and the quiz assigned me a song by Arcade Fire, a band I haven’t really listened to in four years. On second thought, maybe you’re better off listening to a bunch of music and deciding for yourself what you like … [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
You find a $100 in your pocket (OK, unlikely, but work with us here), so what do you do? Stock up on Havaianas for the summer or deposit it immediately? Maybe you take your man to a nice dinner or you pay off some credit card debt (like chipping an ice cube off an iceberg). To find out what your money-making persona is, take our personality quiz after the jump and share with your friends. Then check out our Money 101, Cash & Coupling, and My Two Cents columns to learn money tips, share your wisdom and fill your piggybank. I took the quiz and I’m “Greta Grownup” — wow, Mom will be so proud!
