A Great Excuse For Cheating

The next time you get caught cheating, just blame nature and your physiology. Women who have a high level of the sex hormone oestradoil may be more likely to cheat, according to a recent study of 52 women aged 17 to 30. Women with high levels of oestradoil are highly fertile and feel more attractive, which makes them more likely to flirt, kiss, or have a serious affair. Highly fertile women apparently tire easily of long-term partners and are motivated to find more desirable partners. This excuse, however, won’t work if you’re just having casual sex on the side because women with high levels of oestradoil are usually serial monogamists. But then again, I doubt your man will be able to tell whether you have a lot of oestradoil. Can they make a T-shirt for that? [Science Daily via AOL] Keep reading »

When It Comes To Sexual Partners, We Are Above Average

Either I am the world’s greatest slut (and need a T-shirt that says that, pronto), or there just isn’t enough love in this world! According to the National Center for Health Statistics, women have an median average of four sex partners in their lifetime. Please, I’ve been trying to have four partners this week! Now, perhaps this statistic also includes Granny No-One-Gets-In-My-Panties, but the number seems amazingly low with women like me, Madonna, Jenna Jameson, and Jezebel’s old Slut Machine, who are so beyond the average we’re probably off the CDC’s graph! Really, with all the tramps in the world upping the statistic, the national average still four? We can’t do all the men by ourselves! Actually perhaps we can. Men, on average, have nearly double the amount of sexual partners women do — lucky number seven. Guess everything I heard in high school was true, some girls are sluts and some girls are prudes. But one thing is clear, every dude is a sex machine. Lifescript.com]

Quickies!: Vince Vaughn Goes Down, Robin Williams Has A Heartache

  • You should see what Vince Vaughn can do with an ice cream cone! Oh yeah, and he’s getting married to Kyla Weber, a real estate agent. Expect Jennifer Aniston to start talking about how “not cool” their engagement is any day now. [DListed]
  • Rihanna’s camp isn’t denying the engagement/marriage rumors. In fact, they didn’t have any information to offer. [Perez Hilton]
  • And speaking of Rihanna (isn’t everyone these days?), maybe she didn’t have a cold sore in that photo earlier this year. Maybe that was more evidence of Chris Brown’s wrath. [Mediatakeout]

    Don’t Be So Quick To Blame Stress For Your Gray Hair

    Everybody told me my premature gray hairs were due to stress or genes. Some of that is probably true. My mom is completely gray and my boyfriend has contributed to at least seven of my silver-colored strands. But there’s a more scientific explanation for going gray. Researchers have discovered that gray hairs occur because of a build up of hydrogen peroxide. Yeah, it’s not just for blonds. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced in the body and interferes with the melanin, which is the pigment that colors our hair and skin. So the more it builds up, the grayer we get. Eek! Scientists are optimistic there will be products on the market soon to remove the excess hydrogen peroxide from our hair, so we can keep our brilliant color for as long as possible. The hair industry will definitely be interested in this research and consumers will obviously be too. After all, the money spent on hair care products is projected to reach $42.5 billion by 2010. I think any solution to slow down the aging effects of gray hair is worth every penny. Do you? [MSNBC]

    No One And Nothing Beats A Web Connection

    German twenty-somethings would give up their spouse or car if they had to choose between them or an Internet connection or a mobile phone, according to a study conducted by German broadband association Bitkom. About 84 percent of a thousand respondents aged 19 to 29 said they would do without their current partner or car rather than relinquish their connection to the web. Living without a cell phone was also out of the question for 97 percent of the people surveyed. However, Bitkom president August-Wilhelm Scheer said that the findings don’t mean that “the Web is an anonymous medium that leads to social indifference.” Half of the respondents said they had made a new friend on a chat forum or web community. And 8 percent had found love on the Internet. [Reuters]

    Would you dump your guy or automobile if it meant you could keep your web connection? What else would you be willing to give up? Let us know in the comments. Keep reading »

    Study Confirms That As The Economy Bottoms Out, Curves Make A Comeback

    In this economy, while men are worried about losing their jobs, they’re looking for something to hold onto. And that something is a big ol’ booty! Finally, this gray economic cloud officially has its silver lining, thanks to a recent study conducted at New York University. Their findings confirmed that when times are lean, men tend to describe their ideal mate as extra fatty! Keep reading »

    Get Your Rocks Off: The Ultimate Sex Mix

    A study by the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine claims “degrading sex lyrics” inspire impressionable, virgin teens to hump for the first time. While we thought this whole debate was put to bed back when Elvis thrusted his pelvis, the doctors wanted to test today’s hottest Billboard tracks on teens. To their credit, the study does not vilify a particular genre of music, just the nature of the poetry. However, if you like to get freak nasty, then one man’s undignified playlist of no-no’s can make for another woman’s ultimate sex mix! So, here are some of the tracks used in the study along with a bunch of bonus knockin’ boots classics from my high school days. Here’s to getting it on — or off… Keep reading »

    Study Shows That Beauty Is In The Gender Of The Beholder

    A recent study says women and men view beauty differently. Yeah, we kind of already suspected that. But now there is proof to back it up! Apparently, women use their whole brain to absorb beauty, whereas men use the right side of their brains. Keep reading »

    Study Finds Scars Make Men Sexier

    While my Jewish grandmother could probably give you a bunch of different reasons why I’m still single, researchers from the Universities of Liverpool and Stirling think they’ve solved my problem. Last week, The Frisky’s resident cutie pie, Catherine, asked us to confess what turns us on. Here’s what I admitted:

    “I love a man with scars, especially from acne. I can’t explain the attraction. Sometimes I have to ask myself: ‘Am I into this guy or am I just hot for his acne scars?”

    It’s true. My friends tease me like I’m some sort of scar-fetishist because I always go for dudes with “damage.” To them I say the old Apple Jack’s slogan, “Hey, we eat what we like!” I like me a face full of scars and apparently I’m not alone…. Keep reading »

    Does A Big Chin Equal A Big Cheater?

    If you think it’s obvious why most men aren’t exactly lining up to date Rumer Willis, think again. According to a new study it may not be just because they find that big chin unattractive. Researchers say a prominent chin can be a “telltale sign that a woman will be unfaithful.” Hmm, can someone say Claire Danes? Perhaps, Hillary Swank? Keep reading »
