Win This! Smithsonian Channel Swag Bag

We might love celebrity gossip and trashy reality TV, but we’re science, art, and history buffs, too. Some weekends, we even watch documentaries to enrich our knowledge and trivia reserves instead of putting on “Real Housewives” marathons. So if you’re anything like us, then you’re sure to enjoy quality programming from the Smithsonian Channel, including “Stories from the Vaults,” which lets viewers inside the museum’s private labs and get a glimpse of rarely-seen artifacts, and “Vampire Princess,” which examines the Count Dracula legend and offers another theory about a woman who may be the mother of all vampires that’s supported by scientific evidence. [$31.48, "Stories from the Vault"; $11.24, "Vampire Princess"]

Win This! We’re giving away a swag bag from the Smithsonian Channel that includes DVDs of “Stories from the Vaults” and “Vampire Princess,” a duffel bag, and a T-shirt, but you have to work if you want it!

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Awkward Kiss Story

There are awkward kisses, and then there are awkward kisses. We asked you to share your most embarrassing smooch story in exchange for the French flick “Shall We Kiss?” and man, have you guys had some hilarious lip-locking sessions! The winner, however, is commenter Terpgirl131 for this comment:

I went to visit my best friend in Chicago for her birthday when I was 16. After her party, we ended up at her crush’s house with he and his friend, and he had a sauna in his basement. Marissa and David left to go do their thing, leaving me alone with this kid who I’d never met before.  He immediately pounced on me and started making out, with no transition towards it or anything. It was super awkward, but I was so surprised I couldn’t do anything but kiss back. When I finally made an excuse to leave, I saw that he had legitimately come on my mesh shorts. Being 16 and super paranoid, I went to the woman’s health clinic and got the morning after-after pill.  So yes, this 5 minute make out session ended with me getting Plan B.

Thanks for all your hilarious stories, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest! Keep reading »

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Tip For Spending Quality Time With Your S.O.

Last week, we asked you for your best tip for spending quality time with your boo in exchange for a weekend at New York City’s Buckingham Hotel. You guys had some pretty amazing ideas that we’re gonna have to incorporate into our own love lives, but we decided that michaelmidwest‘s deserved the prize:

My advice is not what to do together. It is what not to do apart. When you and your significant other are at work, out with a friend, studying, or any other activity separated, it is important to not send them constant updates. Reduce the text messages, drop the twitter updates and go about your day. When you return home, you and your partner will have more to talk about and share. Also, conversations usually have more meaning because your ideas and words have had time to stew versus being spewed the moment you feel something. Technology gives us instant access to those we love, but this level of hyper-connectedness can dull down the romance.  GO OUT Have your OWN time and when you connect FACE to FACE share something real.  Love is Poetry, not a Meme.

Thanks for all of your amazing tips, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest. The winner will receive the French movie “Shall We Kiss?” Keep reading »

Win This! Viliv S7 Premium Mobile Tablet Powered By Intel

It’s terribly difficult to go without internet access — we go through withdrawal when we can’t get online — but who wants to lug around a laptop everywhere they go? We’ve become reliant on smartphones, but you can only do so much with a tiny screen and an even tinier keyboard. The viliv S7 Premium powered by Intel solves all these issues. This little computer weighs less than 2 pounds, has great battery life, and is able to access the internet the same way a laptop would. Your productivity and communication will be unstoppable, but, let’s be honest, it’s also fantastic for watching movies or entertaining your friends with the latest viral videos. [$579, Dynamism]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away one Intel viliv S7 Premium, but you have to work if you want it. Share the worst thing you’ve discovered about through online stalking before a date — and whether you went on the date after finding out that info — in the comments by 3:39 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 12. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

UPDATE! The winner of the Viliv S7 Premium Mobile Tablet is Fizzy for this comment:

“I went on a date with someone I met, yes, on The Frisky. (And no, it wasn’t CheeeeEEEEse, and to be fair to the man in question I’m not going to reveal his identity.) Before going on the date I knew everything about his dating and sex habits from what his kinks were to his opinions on stereotypical male behavior. One might think this would be beneficial. But in fact it was strange in a really predictable sense, and when I realized things weren’t exactly working out it didn’t make sense to me because everything he’d said in comments suggested otherwise. Needless to say I ended up not commenting for sometime and changing my identity.
Frisky ladies, I would avoid dating the gentlemen of this website for those reasons, as attractive as some of them are!”

Thanks for all your online stalking cautionary tales. Keep reading »

UPDATE! The winner of the Leslie Green Necklace is lea322 for this comment:

“One year, when I was in high school, my mom gave me a delicate gold necklace for Valentine’s Day. The pendant is a little heart with a small pearl in the middle. It’s extremely subtle and understated, but I love it. My mom always made Valentine’s Day special with a gift for my sister and I. She always shows us how much she loves us, but with all the added pressure of “relationships” on V-Day, she made sure to do something just a little more special to make sure we knew that with or without a guy, we were loved. That necklace is something I will always love and appreciate.”

Thank you for all your sweet (and not-so sweet) stories. Keep reading »
