I am a person who takes my dreams very seriously and last night, I had a super vivid, extremely urgent dream in which I wrote a list of the 14 reasons (exactly 14) why everyone in the world should be cuddling right now. In my dream, this was the most brilliant, revolutionary concept that I’d ever cooked up and writing it was of the utmost importance — LIFE OR DEATH! So much so, that I got out of bed, flung my boyfriend away who was, in fact, cuddling me at the time, and stumbled to my iPhone to write down this idea so that I would remember it today. I stayed up for at least 30 mins, toying with the language. Was it “Why You Should Be Cuddling Right Now” or “Why You Should Be Cuddling Naked Right Now”? No, not naked. The idea was about cuddling in a non-sexual way. Should it be a slideshow? Or do I use GIFs? No GIFs, no slideshow, just a simple list in praise of SNUGS (snuggling). And now here I am, making this dream list a reality.  After the jump, the 14 reasons why you should be cuddling RIGHT NOW, naked or not. I hope this changes the world the way I dreamed it would.

Healthy Snack Ideas

I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately, which has made me realize that I’m a terrible snacker. I either don’t snack enough (because yes, snacking is good — it keeps your metabolism steady throughout the day) and am ravenous by dinner time, or I go on all-day snacking rampages that make my calorie-counting apps shake their heads with disappointment. Since Ami is the queen of healthy snacking and has already proven her abilities at giving me important life advice, I thought I’d ask her for some snack tips. Our conversation led me to a few epiphanies (it might be time to give up my super sugary energy bars) and the following list of healthy snack commandments… Keep reading »

A Step By Step Guide To A Terrible Trip To The DMV

I finally got my Tennessee driver’s license last week. The process took me 11 hours, three trips to the spectacularly inconveniently located DMV service station, countless calls to their hotline (spoiler alert: all representatives are always busy), and two episodes of public crying. I always want to root for the Department of Motor Vehicles, I always want them prove everybody wrong, but these past few weeks crushed any lingering specks of faith I had in this bloated, soul-killing bureaucracy. The DMV sucks. It really, really sucks. Just in case you need convincing, or you’ve never been to the DMV, or you just want to take a moment and be really grateful that you’re not at the DMV right now, I’ve composed a step-by-step guide to a terrible DMV experience, illustrated by GIFs. If you think you can handle it, take a number, have a seat, and read on… Keep reading »

Moving Across The Country
Ami gives Winona advice for her big move! Read More »

Lately I’ve been thinking about the things we believe we can’t do, and how many of them we actually end up doing at some point in our lives. For me, moving across the country and dealing with my brother being deployed are two things that fall in that category. I’m not saying these are the pinnacle achievements of the human experience or anything, but for me, personally, these were two things I never thought I could do, and this year I did/am doing both. I asked the rest of the Frisky ladies to tell me their “Oh my God, I just did that” accomplishments, and it turns out we’ve proved ourselves wrong and pushed our own limits in everything from sex and relationships to skydiving and facing our fears of chickens. Check out our list below, and please share your own in the comments! Keep reading »

11 Ways Our Vaginas Have Betrayed Us

Glitter In Her Vagina
It's an occupational hazard for Kesha. Read More »

Most of the time we love our vaginas. After so many years together, we’ve formed a warm, companionable relationship, where we know that she’s on our team, and while sometimes she can be moody or mysterious, we’ll usually be able to predict what she’s thinking. But on the rare occasion that our vadges act out, we feel spurned. Like, say, when we’re at the gym lifting weights and when we stand up, there is a full sweat imprint of our vagina — labia majora and all — on the workout bench and we discover it just as we see the hot guy standing next to us, taking in our crotch Rorschach, and we think, Vagina, you have betrayed me. You bitch. No sex for you. Below, a few instances when we’ve wanted to disown our vadges for being so disloyal. Keep reading »

Last weekend I popped into Sephora to restock my basic brown eyeliner and stumbled out hours later, hundreds of dollars poorer, with an armful of fuchsia lip gloss and a gnarly perfume hangover. The worst part? This happens every single freakin’ time I go to Sephora. I really should know better by now, but after polling the rest of the Frisky staffers, I’ve realized that Sephora psychosis is a universal experience. We all must accept that there are certain things that will happen every time you visit this Mecca of Makeup, no matter what your intentions or how much you try to resist. They are as follows… Keep reading »

Online detox

A couple weeks ago, I clicked on a Twitter link from a website I follow that used to be an interesting mix of entertainment and weird news stories, but has recently devolved into link-baiting sensationalism. The link said something like, “Chinese woman dies in freak accident with runaway shopping cart. Watch the video here!” It was early, I was groggy, and I clicked the link. I don’t know what I was expecting (seriously, what the fuck was I expecting?!), but what I watched was indeed a video of a woman getting smashed against a wall by a runaway shopping cart. It was horrible and extremely upsetting. It was also a wake up call: I hadn’t even had my coffee yet, and I’d already WATCHED SOMEONE DIE — I really, really needed to overhaul my online habits.

This weekend I was informed, via a celebratory email, that my Tumblr blog (where I post feminist quotes, haute couture dresses, terrible jokes, and pictures of Connie Britton) is now five-years-old. My first thought? Awww, they grow up so fast! My second thought? Damn, my life would be so much different if I’d never signed up for Tumblr. I mean, not only could I have earned at least two PhDs in all the hours I’ve wasted laughing at kitten GIFs, but there are so many things I know and understand now that I never would have known if not for Tumblr. For example… Keep reading »

6 Reasons To Make Your Bed
Here's why this chore is totally worth it. Read More »

I am not a morning person. Never have been. Ever since elementary school, I’ve been incapable of getting out of bed in a timely manner, let alone having anything resembling hand-eye coordination or a good attitude before, you know, noon. But in recent years, through a seemingly endless series of trials and errors, I’ve discovered a few ways to make mornings suck a little bit less. These days, I don’t completely, totally dread waking up in the morning, which, believe me, is a huge deal. I compiled some of my favorite non-sucky morning strategies and polled the rest of The Frisky staff for their preferred pre-work rituals, and we came up with the following tips that will have you saying “top of the mornin’ to ya!” in no time (JK, don’t say that).  Keep reading »

Why am I so enraptured with these bouncy little creatures? Allow me to explain in the most eloquent, concise possible way: a series of adorable goat GIFs… Keep reading »
