Today’s Lady News: The Reason You’re Afraid Of Spiders Is…

  • Scared of spiders? Me, too. A study by David Rakison, a developmental psychologist at Carnegie Mellon University, suggests us females might actually be genetically predisposed to fear creepy-crawlies and dangerous animals. He showed 10 baby girls and boys pictures of spiders and found that the girls associated fear with spiders more quickly than boys did. Rakison said this suggests a possible genetic disposition by women (thanks to humans’ hunter-gatherer ancestry) to avoid danger. [New Scientist]—Or could it could be because we’re prissy.

    John Schools: Like AA Meetings For Dudes Who Hire Prostitutes

    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 »

    Look! A Woman With Two Vaginas!

    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.

    Pick Up Your Doggie’s Doo-Doo In Style

    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 »

And in a move that can only be described as supremely post-postmodern, that’s what Swedish art student Anna Odell attempted to do as a performance art piece for a final project—jump off the Liljeholmen Bridge.

Now, six years later, she’s attempted suicide twice, has moved back in with her mom, and is working three jobs to survive.
