After watching this new Rhapsody ad and seeing this recent fashion layout for POP magazine, starring model-of-the-moment Agyness Deyn and shot by Ryan McGinley, I couldn’t help but wonder if women jumping off buildings is the new, new thing in pop-culture imagery. In late June, model Ruslana Korshunova, in an apparent suicide, fell from the ninth-floor balcony of her New York City apartment. What do you think is going on here? Keep reading »
Some of us at The Frisky predict that Leanne will win this season’s Project Runway competition because she has a well-defined design perspective — her designs scream her name. She revisits a combination of trends/elements in each of her covetable designs. Since we know you too have been dying to wear her fashions, we found some items that have these trends and are available now.

CNN has a story up today about people who trade sex for gifts or favors, from a woman who had sex with a guy for two weeks in exchange for a jungle tour in Brazil, to husbands who vow to be handy around the house in exchange for morning nookie. You know what I say to this story? Duh, obviously, and don’t we all? The essence of dating is exchanging sex for dinners, date activities, and expensive wine. Being in a relationship is all about trading a blow job despite “I’m not in the mood honey” because honey cooked an amazing dinner. The trade may not be spoken or out in the open, but it’s there, in your head. And who cares? Dating and relationships are about compromise and reaching a point that is mutually beneficial. The girl in the story may have slept with a guy she didn’t find that attractive because he was being nice enough to give her a jungle tour and so what? She appreciated the gesture, they had fun and for all the guy knows, she was in the sack with him because she was hot for him. Keep reading »
The hit song of the summer, I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry, is the soundtrack for a new sexual revolution. From co-ed LUG’s to Hollywood’s hottest stars, girl-on-girl action is steaming up the streets and screens across the U.S. What publicly started with Madonna kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the Video Music Awards in 2003, has grown into a full-on, leggings-style TREND.

Marriage is so out this wedding season! Only Mariah Carey is doing it, that’s how over it is. After a nuptial-less summer — not even Kate Moss made it down the aisle — we started noticing the new Hollywood trend. Longterm partnerships (sans diamonds, splashy affairs, and cheesy photos) are the must-have Ray-Ban Wayfarers of relationships! After both had failed marriages, hippie generation icons Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been going at it, without making it official, for 25 years. In an interview, Goldie claimed their secret to success is, “knowing I can walk out at any moment…that keeps things fresh.” And after going through the pain of divorce, many stars seem to agree.

The Amazing Hydration Diet sounds like an elixir an old timey quack doctor would sell out the back of his wagon at a carnival. However silly sounding, it’s really a trendy diet that was recently popular with folks in Britain. Licensed nutritionist Barbara Nash suggested her chubby client, Dawn Page, take a little bit off by drinking excessive amounts of water — nearly 10 glasses a day. Sure, it seems refreshingly healthy for a diet when compared to the all-you-can-eat-meat Atkins diet, the cabbage soup only diet, and prepackaged low fat foods, but in actuality life-giving water can also kill. Apparently, there is such a thing as water intoxication. Not as fun as plain intoxication and sadly, a Californian woman died last year from a water drinking contest to win a Nintendo Wii. Luckily, Dawn Page survived her hydration detox, including all of the vomiting and the epileptic fit it induced. Keep reading »
Lacey bras, silk slips, corsets, teddies, garter belts, assless panties…sexy lingerie big bucks, but we’re happy to spend for the fringe benefits! That’s the cost of getting a man’s attention, right? Well, like most things we think about men, we’re wrong. Apparently, all the dudes want is a lady in tube socks. Yes, that’s right, thick tube socks with nothing else. Remember that American Apparel ad? Just like that. If you need more proof to test the sock theory, here’s Gisele Bundchen posed in GQ with no pants, sporting knee-high athletic socks. If you let your man see this picture, he will beg you for some sweet sock action. Guaranteed. Keep reading »
Ahh, spring. Flowers, pollen, allergies, margaritas, tanning, blockbuster movies, dresses, flip-flops, fornicating…yes, fornicating. Is it true people are hornier in the spring? We sent our lovely Lori out to investigate. Keep reading »
The only rule I have when I shop is that I will only buy something if it is a DEAL. I don’t buy full price EVER and when I am shopping at resale shops, I won’t buy anything that wasn’t originally expensive at full price. So, this weekend I was shopping at my favorite discount department store and I purchased a fitted leather vest because A) it was a deal and B) who doesn’t need a leather vest? Except, maybe, me, as once I got home, I got very confused as to what to wear it with. I have about a week to test it out before I need to decide to keep or return it, so I’ve put together some potential outfit inspirations so that you guys can weigh in about whether I am a dumb ass for buying the thing in the first place or a fashion maven with vision. For the record, that is me, in my vest, as I wore it today — a disastrous ensemble, to say the least. Keep reading »
There are a long list of inventions we wish we thought up: Post-Its…the completely backless bra…the Sharpee. One we’re glad we were smart enough not to think up is the tooth tattoo — yeah. K Art Dental Studio is reaching out to dentists around the world with their super special patented technology which can tattoo anyone’s tooth — with anything they want! — using “dental staining colors at 1775 degree Fahrenheit.” What does that even mean? Also, if need be — like if you have a job interview, or a wedding — the tattoo can be removed in two minutes. Honestly, many women state that a guy’s smile is one of the first things they check out when assessing his attractiveness, so I don’t know why anyone would choose to get a four leaf clover or Elvis stamped on their front tooth.
