Man, this week was a downer! Senator Ted Kennedy, a champion of women’s rights, passed away. Chris Brown avoided jail time for beating the crap out of Rihanna. Someone thought it’d be a good idea for Kate Gosselin to host “The View.” And teenagers in Phoenix did some nasty things with tampons and alcohol.
At least Anna Wintour nailed her “Letterman” interview. (Yay, “The September Issue” is out tonight! Well, in New York, anyway.) After the jump, see what else happened this week on The Frisky! Keep reading »
It used to be that only Google’s YouTube users who “regularly produce videos that reach a wide audience” were able to make money from ad revenue sales on their videos. But now, Google is explanding its partnership program so those with one-hit wonders can cash in, too. If a video gets enough views, users automatically get a message saying, “Enable Revenue Sharing.” If you see this link, click on it to get a share of the revenue YouTube makes from selling ads on your video page. We hope this will be very good news for the couple who made “JK Wedding Entrance Dance,” which got over 10 million views but never made them a dime. And for the owner of that darn bulldog on a skateboard. [News AU] Keep reading »
Here’s a story from a medical journal: One woman’s sex changes when she has seizures. We learned from the pages of the journal Epilepsy and Behavior that the woman has a tumor located near her amygdala and abnormal activity on the right side of her brain. After she has a seizure, she believes her gender has changed.
“I’m no longer feeling to be a female. I have the impression to transform into a male. My voice, for example, sounds like a male voice that moment. One time, when I looked down to my arms during this episode, these looked like male arms including male hair growth.”
At the same time, she perceives that females around her are males. “One time another woman, a friend of mine, was in the same room, I perceived also her as becoming a male person including changing sound of her voice.” Anti-convulsive drug treatment has helped resolve her gender-altering problem.

Whatever you do, do not go to PaceHighSchool.com. It’s NSFW or for children for that matter. Sure it sounds innocent, but this high school has a whole other kind of bell-ringing going on — the kinky kind. A Florida high school full of innocent teenagers shares its name with a Canadian porn site full of “Blubbery Bitches,” “Booty Crushers,” and “Wild Party Whores.” Sounds educational to us! The site, run by PimpRoll, doesn’t even require you to confirm you’re of legal age. But, despite parental complaints, the real Pace High School principal can’t do much to clear his school’s name on the net. “It is their right to do this and we exhausted all possibilities to see if there was anything we could do,” said Principal Frank Lay. (Ha, principal Lay watches his Pace!) The school decided to register PaceHighSchool.net as their domain instead. Hey, at least the real Pace High School is keepin’ up with the times and getting on, not gettin’ it on, the internet. [NWF Daily News] Keep reading »
If you are 21 or older and want to be immortalized as a creepily sexual robot sponsored by Svedka Vodka, well, your day has come! This swanky booze company has launched a site that lets users upload photos of their faces and go to town designing bodies with outfits to match. The garb is super sexy and the accessories are pretty kinky. I guess Svedka thinks most girls fantasize about becoming burlesque dancers or slutty nurses? Or slutty fairies, with horns, a yellow face and green skin? I think we’ll stick with our “Mad Men” avatars. [AreYouBotOrNot.com] Keep reading »
About 50 cities in the U.S. have come up with an interesting way to handle dudes who are caught trying to pick up prostitutes—they’re sending them to “John Schools.” In these AA-like meetings, the guys listen to presentations by former prostitutes who tell them how brutal the industry is, health experts who share how dangerous sex-for-hire can be, and therapists who try to get them to understand why they were trying to buy nookie in the first place. The idea is to get the guys—about half of whom are married—to understand that hiring a prostitute isn’t a fun and harmless thing, but that they’re actually part of a much bigger problem. Only first-time offenders are eligible for these AA-like meetings, which are generally held in churches or government buildings. (Repeat offenders and those who try to solicit minors are dealt with more harshly.) The guys also have to pay a $250 fee and finish the class without trying to buy another woman. Keep reading »
Have you ever imagined what your sex life might be like if you had two vaginas? Hmmm … double the vaginas, double the pleasure, right? Not, according to 28-year-old Brit Lauren Williams, who actually had two vaginas. After getting tired of tending to her 21-day period (OMG, kill me now), she suspected something might be wrong with the lady bits and went to get it checked out. After a lot of confusion and misdiagnosis, her vagina’s double life was revealed. She had two of everything—two vags, two uteri, two cervixes. Evidently, this is a rare disorder called a “bicornuate uterus.” Lauren was shocked; she had never noticed before, nor had her doctors or boyfriends. But why would her boyfriends have said anything—each of her two vaginas was very small if you know what I’m sayin’. Lauren underwent surgery to remove the barrier between her vags, leaving her with one giant vagina. A happy ending … I guess? I bet OctoMom is jealous.

I’m sure several of the fashionable, dog-owning ladies here at the Frisky would like to look more stylish while picking up after their doggies, say, when Lucca drops her load on the sidewalks of Manhattan. It’s so unsightly! And what if a hot dude came along while you were scooping your pooch’s poopies? Now there’s Poupou Royal to the rescue. The corn fiber handles “allow for effective action and hygienic without dipping your fingers.” What that means, I am not sure. But it’s got to be better than using the plastic bag that last night’s takeout Chinese arrived in, right? [UQAM via NOTCOT] Keep reading »
