You may have missed the trend, but The Campus Socialite is here to show you the best planking pictures on the web. Planking involves lying down rigid (like a plank), taking a picture of it and uploading it to Internet. Be warned — it can be deadly. An Australian man fell seven stories to his death while trying to blank on a high-rise building. Planking in the wrong place can also cost you your job, as it did with two Australian workers who impressively planked on chimney stacks at work. The key to planking is to be safe but be humorous. Thanks to Plank You Very Much and Planking Photos, we’re sharing the most awesome planking pics on the web.

How to Up Your Dude Swag: 5 Unique Products for Men

shake weight for men

Seems like all products for men cut time in half or involve getting two things done at once. I think it’s safe to say men are somewhat lazy. If it was possible to invent a bed that bathed, dressed, and fed men I’m sure it would have been done already. Lately, I’ve been coming across some products that make me wonder what kind of person (most likely a man in these cases) sat down and thought of them – like the Shake Weight. The products below will have you wondering, “hey, why didn’t I think of that?”

One Trend Guys Shouldn’t Try

mexican boots

Here at The Campus Socialite, we rarely ever discuss men’s style. Skinny jeans, long tees, cardigans — it’s pretty much a given that we accept you men just as you are, but this girl here is curious about your taste in footwear. Are you the guy who rocks Vans, Nikes or American Eagle flip flops? Any of you frat guys walk around in Sperrys all day? Whatever your footwear preference, what do you think about those jester-style boots Mexican men are wearing? Click on if you don’t know what I’m referring to.

Would You Try Dairy Products with Breast Milk Inside?

Breasts are nice. I get it. As a girl, I’m well aware of how lovely they look. Despite the fun purposes they serve, their main purpose is to provide nutrients to babies. As an aunt, I wasn’t grossed out when my sister started breastfeeding my niece, but I was grossed out when she tried her own breast milk for the fun of it. I can’t imagine knowingly ingesting that. Ew! There’s been a recent trend with restaurants using breast milk in dairy products. You won’t believe what you’re about to read.

Campus Diva Presents: Cosmo’s Worst Sex Advice Ever

Growing up, I was a HUGE reader of Cosmopolitan Magazine. My dream was to be as effortlessly sexy as the women in the features. Then I gained some common sense and realized that I shouldn’t need to learn 200 ways to get the guy of my dreams, 75 diets to stay below 100 lbs, or 500 methods to please him in bed. Cosmo has turned into the girls’ guide for doing everything for everyone but herself. Recently, the magazine published the “Cosmopolitan Ultimate Sex Guide”  where the following advice was published:

“Get fruity! A smashed banana or peaches inserted into your vagina is a delightful invitation for him to whoosh his penis around in it! Once you climax, switch to the 69 position for sweet afters.”

5 Reasons You Need to Watch HBO’s “Game of Thrones”

game of thrones

Here at the The Campus Socialite, we’re suckers for good TV. I realized that my second day on the internship, when the editors mentioned HBO’s Game of Thrones. It’s a medieval-themed fantasy series, based on the books by George R.R. Martin, that follows the struggles of  seven noble families of the seven kingdoms of Westeros as they fight for the iron throne. Okay, that sounds cheesy, but it’s probably the best fantasy series since “Carnivale.” This show has everything from women, to violence, to some of the best and most complex story arcs and characters on television. If you’re not already watching “Game of Thrones,” read on for five reasons why you should be.

After Troubles With Hackers, PlayStation Network Crashes. Is This It For Sony?

It seems like Sony PlayStation is having the worst luck ever. Earlier this month, hackers used Amazon’s Elastic Computer Cloud (EC2) service to shut the network and the PlayStation websites down for almost a month. Twenty-six days later, PSN is finally running, but there’s another problem. Too many users trying to access the servers and change their passwords, as requested, caused the network to crash. Uh, can’t you get anything right, PSN? SONY tweeted the following: “If you’ve requested your password reset, it’s taking time to clear all of the ISPs, so please give it a bit of time to reach your email.”

In addition to the crash following the 26-day hiatus, PlayStation is also rapidly bleeding customers. Edge Magazine reports a 200 percent increase in on PS3 consoles being traded in for Xbox 360s. Whomp Whomp, says the 360 user. Is this the demise of PlayStation 3 as we know it? Sony as a force in the video game industry? What do you think, Socialites? Is this acceptable?
