World Cup Delicious

It’s World Cup time and the web is clogged with all manner of information about the teams, the matches and the players. Awesome. Our editrix is a huge soccer fanatic, so we’ve suffered more games than we care to recount. In any event, just because we’re bitter doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy the spoils of the match.

So, all you lovers of men, here’s Italy’s Fabio Cannavaro. For all you lovers of women, scroll down for skin and World Cup WAGs. … Continue Reading

Yum, Yum: Dolce Boys

January 25, 2010 Culture, Eyecandy, Fashion, Men 2 Comments

We had some sexy ladies earlier this morning through the link on our interview with CelebrityFantasies, so we thought to include a little bit of noms for us lovers of men.

Behold the beautiful creatures that are Adam Senn, Sam Webb, Noah Mills and David Gandy! Behold the thankless, horrific task that is method acting and modeling! But, oh, the suggestion of testosterone…

Dolce, dolce, dolce.

Scott Brown Takes Massachusetts (But First, He Took Off His Clothes!)

You can always count the agenda here at Sex and the 405 to be pretty much “leave our sex lives alone,” which sounds pretty liberal, but surprise, surprise, we have quite a bit of everything from socialists to staunch conservatives. We seem to take our politics in this virtual newsroom like we take our sex: with as much variety as there are colors.

This post is for all of you who supported Scott Brown in one of the biggest political upsets to date. And for anyone else who digs a fine chunk o’ man.

Behold Scott Brown, 1982 Cosmopolitan “America’s Sexiest Man” centerfold!

From the Independent article that accompanies the photo:

Mr. Brown was at Boston College in the midst of his final law exams when it was shot. Though he surely cannot have known that one day he would compete to fill the shoes of Teddy Kennedy, he did give a hint as to his future ambitions in a brief interview when he admitted to being a “bit of a patriot.”

Yum, yum. God bless America.

The Hottest Bod in The World

Mid-December, we told you about a contest featuring some serious man meat, Hottest Bod in the World contest.

The results, ladies and gentlemen, are in: the winner, with over 20,000 votes is 26-year-old Jordon Nemitz and he’s coming to Hollywood later this month–in the form of a billboard, to be displayed for our oggling delight (as we battle gridlock traffic-induced nosebleeds) above the W at Hollywood and Vine.

Until then, we have secured some exclusive shots from last week’s NYC photo shoot with the Hottest Bod winner! Yes, you can click for bigger images. And yes, we know you love us. If you’re really nice, maybe we’ll bring you along when this hunk of man comes to town to party in a few weeks.

Until then…

It’s A Hot-Off!

Look at those bodies. It’s the final round of Hottest Bod in the World contest, run by Body Heat, a men’s fragrance from Parfums de Coeur.

Gratuitous contests like these make life worth living. I don’t know how many countries are represented or whether every hot hunk in the world was given a fair chance and I don’t really give a damn. Here are the three finalists and that’s more than enough for this woman.

If you can pry your eyes for a second, I’ll tell you about this thing. These three dudes are engaged in the last round. Their points from this vote will go to their overall scores, bringing them one step closer to World Hotness Domination, or, rather, a billboard over the new W in Hollywood and $10,000 to burn around town (which will last him all of two minutes the way we roll here, but, hey, welcome to L.A.)!

A guy’s rank in the competition is determined by a point system: they get one point for every time a visitor to the site rates him hot and 15 points for each fan they get on Facebook. The contest also involves a series of duels, for which the winner gets 5 points for every Facebook fan their opponents have.

Call me primitive, but there is nothing hotter than seeing men duel.

So go poke around the site and pick a hunk to drool over. The winner’s going to need someone to show him around town once he gets here, right? I’d volunteer, but I’ve myself my own out-of-this-world hot hunk right in my bed waiting for a different kind of final round, so it’s all you, baby. Yeah, I thought you’d like that.

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
