There’s a classic episode of Friends in which Monica explains to Chandler that there are seven female erogenous zones. Each zone has a corresponding number, and she maps out different combinations (a-one-two-three!) that could potentially lead to pleasure. Then she launches into a euphoric “SEVEN. SEVEN. SEVEN!” resulting in thunderous studio audience laughter and applause, and us going: What is that!! I want a seven-gasm!
Women who watched the show thought, “Waaaaait. What am I missing in the bedroom? Seven zones? I’m ditching Cosmo for NBC, bitches,” while men vehemently committed to finding they mysterious seventh zone, wherever the hell it may be (in the nose?). It gave them a new mission beside finding a woman’s clitoris. (Hint: that’s probably what seven was, anyway.)
Even if we can assume what “seven” most likely was, we’ve still got six other numbers to deal with. And since the Internet exists, this internal wonderment has come to full discussion on the Web. Women and men have taken to Yahoo! Answers, the beacon of lowbrow Internet discussions, to ponder Monica’s zones. When in doubt, going to the Internet to discover the answers to your most pressing sexual pop culture questions, is never a bad idea.
Anyway, since Friends is hitting the 10 year anniversary of its finale, this question seemed worthy of revisiting. But first, let’s revisit that scene:

Alright, Internet, tell us what’s up!
Well, some guy referred to them as the 7 “erotic zones.” Because your body is erotic.
Wallet – Credit cards – Cash – Nice car – Nice house – Fancy clothes – Foreign vacations.
GREECE! ROME! ITALY! PARIS!
Uhh, okay. No thanks, dude. A nice house will not get her off, FYI.
In the same thread, we have this scientific gem:
eye’s ears nose throat back of neck inside thighs ankles
Besides the poor grammar, please, for the love of Trojan man and birth control, do not stick something in my eye or try to grope the inside of my throat.
And lest we forget, some real chauvinists on the Internet like to turn the conversation to being about them:
1) Penis 2) Penis 3) Penis 4) Penis 5) Penis 6) Penis 7) Penis What? Guys can have erogenous zones too!
But that’s not what we’re talking about here. Maybe we’re talking about your spirituality?
The seven spots on everyone’s body could be chakras.
Wake up mah chakras, please!
Anyway, this isn’t helping. I need answers. Real answers. So what are these zones, anyway?
Well, for starters, there are aren’t seven zones. Take a gander on the net and you’ll discover that there are well more than seven. Sure, there are some basic erogenous zones — breasts, clitoris, neck, but there are articles out there telling women to explore some uncommon places like behind the knees, the abs, the elbow fold … Depending on who you are, different things will work for you.
And that’s the point: this legendary pop culture sexual code is open to interpretation to the viewer. Whatever your six is, that’s your six, even if it’s “fancy clothes” like that Yahoo! dude suggested. What turns you on, turns you on, so in this case… Yahoo! and the Internet with their variable, head-scratching answers may very well be right. Essentially, no two women are the same and they will be turned on to different things — but we can infer what this one is…
Hint: Not the credit card. Please don’t touch my credit card.

‘Queer’ Eye Got Renewed For Season 6 & The Fab Five Is Heading South
The world can be a dumpster fire, but, luckily, there are five charming, smart, well-dressed men ready to make it better. Queer Eye has been renewed for Season 6 at Netflix, the streaming service revealed on Wednesday, March 11. The beloved reality series hasn’t even debuted its fifth season yet, and it’s already guaranteed to come back for more goodness. And not only is the entire Fab Five returning, but they’re heading to another new location, this time in the Lone Star state.
Production on Queer Eye Season 6 just started this week (March 9), according to a press release obtained by Bustle. Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Tan France are currently doing their thing in the city of Austin. The Texas capital will serve as their home base as they “scour the prairie in a search for a whole new roster of heroes in need of a little TLC,” per the press release.
No further details have been released about Season 6, but fans can rest easy in knowing that the Fab Five won’t be disappearing anytime soon. That said, fans are still waiting to see Queer Eye Season 5. And, unfortunately, they’ll have to wait a little bit longer to get their fix. Season 5, which was filmed in Philadelphia last year, is currently set to premiere sometime in the summer of 2020.
Antoni, Jonathan, Karamo, Tan, and Bobby first resurrected Queer Eye (inspired by the early 2000s Queer Eye) in 2018. They’ve been dedicated ever since in positively transforming the lives of those who need it. Queer Eye is more than just about makeovers, it’s about teaching others self-love and confidence, all while giving them encouragement to live happy and fulfilling lives. And if that happens to make viewers sob uncontrollably while watching at home, so be it.
‘Love Is Blind’ Star Damian Was Catfished Into Appearing On The Show
People are willing to do weird things in the name of love — including catfishing unsuspecting singles in order to convince them to take part in a “dating experiment” on Netflix. During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Damian revealed he was catfished by a Love is Blind casting producer, who convinced him to appear on the show after they “hit it off” on a dating app.
Damian — who appeared on Ellen alongside girlfriend, Giannina Gibelli as well as Amber Pike, Matt Barnett, Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton — shared his story after host Ellen DeGeneres asked the group how they all decided to take part in the reality TV experiment in the first place. “They actually found me on Tinder,” Damian confessed, adding that he had probably “one of the most interesting” casting stories.
“I started chatting with this girl, we hit it off, she’s like, ‘Add me on Instagram,'” he recalled with a laugh. “We had, like, a pretty good connection and then she’s like, ‘I’m a casting producer, and I’m a catfish.’ So now, I’m here.” (Coincidentally, Giannina was also recruited over social media, as a producer DMed her on Instagram as she was bemoaning the lack of single men in the city where she lived.)
Thankfully, Damian’s catfish experience has a happy ending, as he met Giannina on the show. Despite plenty of ups and downs — and an incredibly dramatic wedding day breakup — the couple revealed on the Love is Blind reunion that they’re back together. “When we were going through all of that [drama], I think he realized, maybe we need to be best friends first,” Giannina told DeGeneres about her reconciliation with Damian. “I really respect his decision — obviously, we’re dating. Everything happens for a reason.”
During the reunion, the Instagram influencer shared that she felt Damian’s decision to break up with her at the altar ultimately helped them arrive at a happier, more stable place in their relationship. “I feel like where we are now, it’s so right for us,” Giannina said at the time. “We’re getting to know each other at our own pace and it’s just so refreshing. It hurt so much, but it’s all about, ‘What can I do with that?’ and ‘What did I learn from that?'”
While Damian apologized for the “hurt and embarrassment” he put Giannina through on their wedding day, he admitted that he doesn’t regret calling off the wedding. “It was the hardest decision I probably ever made in my life, honestly,” he told her. “And I would stick by it again because of where we are now.”
And based on what they told DeGeneres about their future plans, it seems like where they are is better than ever. “We’ve become best friends now,” Damian explained on the talk show. “We really want to travel together a little bit more. We’re not living together, but we spend all our time together.” In response, Giannina added, “We’re taking it at our own pace, which is great.” They may not have gotten married on the show, but clearly, these two found love in those pods, after all.
Amber & Jessica’s ‘Love Is Blind’ Reunion Was Almost Much Worse
It turns out that “b*tch, you’re shysty” was actually the nice version of what Amber wanted to say during the Love is Blind reunion show. The cast of the hit reality show recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, March 10. And Amber revealed her Love is Blind reunion confrontation with Jessica was almost much bigger, but her now-husband talked her down before they hit the stage.
After Ellen DeGeneres showed Amber — who appeared on the show alongside Matt Barnett, Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed, and Damian Powers and Giannina Gibelli — a clip of her run-in with a drunken Jessica at the bachelorette party, the former Army mechanic revealed that she didn’t know the full extent of the situation before watching the show. “Obviously, there was a lot of things in the show I didn’t know about,” Amber said of Love is Blind, which finished filming a year and a half before its premiere on Feb. 13.
“I thought maybe she had a crush on him,” she continued, referring to Jessica’s lingering feelings for Barnett after they bonded in the pods. “So, seeing everything when the show aired, I was not happy.” In fact, she was so upset that Barnett needed to calm her down before filmed the reunion special with Jessica.

“I’m a very open person, I’m very honest about my feelings,” Amber said. “Something was going to be said, and we compromised.” According to Barnett, what fans saw was just “like, 20 percent” of the actual anger that his wife was feeling at the time. (Yes, that was 20 percent of what Amber was capable of unleashing.)
As Amber explained in an interview with Bustle, much of her anger on the reunion was due to the fact that Jessica had apparently hidden her feelings for Barnett from the other women while they were filming. “This is part of the reason I was so confused when I saw that she was so obsessed with Barnett,” Amber explained in March. “When we were in the pods, [Jessica] was telling everybody that she was in love with Mark and a guy named Taylor.”
As a result, Amber was totally blindsided when she watched the show and discovered that Jessica had been “throwing herself at [Barnett] in Mexico,” as she explained on the reunion. In response to the confrontation — and to seeing her “cringe-worthy” behavior when watching the show back — Jessica apologized to both Amber and Barnett during the Love is Blind reunion. “I do definitely owe a major apology to you, Amber, and to you Barnett,” Jessica said at the time, adding that she wishes them “nothing but the best.”
While Amber admitted that she wasn’t “there yet,” when it came to forgiving Jessica during the reunion, things couldn’t be better for her and Barnett, despite all of the behind-the-scenes drama. “We’ve got a great apartment, a great dog, and we’re having a lot of fun right now,” Amber told DeGeneres about the state of her marriage to Barnett. After all, if they can survive reality TV stardom, buying a house and starting a family should be easy.
