Samantha Is a Man-Eater, Kim Cattrall Takes Tea

January 3, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

Kim Cattrall plays Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, the ultimate man-eater, and she has profited from that reputation with her books Sexual Intelligence, Being A Girl and Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm. But Kim Cattrall is no femme fatale.

“I could not go into a bar and pick up a man,” she told The Daily Mail in an interview on the set of Sex and the City 2 in Marrakesh. “That is so foreign to me it’s not even in my hemisphere. I am totally insecure. That is predatory behavior, and I don’t consider myself a predator. In fact, I feel sometimes that I am the pursued.”

Cattrall has been married three times and recently ended her five-year relationship with the chef Alan Wyse, 20 years her junior. Now she is single again.

“I’m starting to date,” she said. “It feels all right. It’s very hard to be private about that. Whenever you step out for a drink or dinner, whomever you’re with becomes your latest beau. Which is a bit of a laugh for my gay friends.”

Kim describes herself as being a family person, and her recent search for her long-lost maternal grandfather–who abandoned his wife and children in Liverpool when Kim’s mother (now 80) was eight years old–featured in the BBC series Who Do You Think You Are? The moving programme–in which her grandfather was discovered to have bigamously remarried, had another family and relocated to Australia–showed a very different side to the actress and revealed her closeness to her mother and her two Liverpool-based aunts.

“I come from a long line of strong Scouse women. It is not just an accent, it’s almost a constitution – held together by tea. Growing up, I remember there was always a pot on the back burner, and during the filming of Who Do You Think You Are? the bonding always seemed to happen over a cup of tea,” she says, adding, with a gentle laugh, that her mother regards her daughter’s role in a Tetley tea advert as her greatest acting achievement.

Who’da thunk it?

Love Hurts: Charlie Sheen’s Jailbird Christmas

December 27, 2009 Hollywoody, News No Comments

Thought you had a lousy Christmas? Here’s one to make you feel better (maybe? Misery loves company? No? Fine. Anyway): Charlie Sheen spent most of Christmas day in jail on a class-four felony charge of second-degree assault and a class-five felony charge of menacing and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief.

The 44-year-old was taken into custody following an emergency call made to Aspen police by his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen. According to TMZ, Mueller Sheen was given a breathalyzer when police arrived; the percentage of alcohol in her blood was .13, meaning she was legally drunk when she placed the call. Sheen himself registered .04.

TMZ has also reported that Muller Sheen has changed her story from what she said during the 911 call and is now refusing to be re-interviewed by police.

The couple were on a “trial separation” before they met in Aspen for the holiday, where Muller is renting a house.

Sheen was released at 7:00 PM on $8,500 bail; he is not to have any have contact with his wife.

Angie vs. Jen: The PORN

December 27, 2009 Hollywoody, News, Porn 1 Comment

Didn’t get everything you wanted this Christmas? Here’s a consolation prize for you like no other.

Hustler is releasing a skin flick based on our speculations about Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston’s feud in Hustler’s Untrue Hollywood Stories: Angelina Jolie vs. Jennifer Aniston!

“We were very pleased with the casting of the movie because the girls looked so much like the celebrities they were playing,” director Stuart Canterbury says in a release on Hustler World. “Of course, the highlight of the movie is the showdown when the girls get into a catfight on the red carpet. The performers were so into their characters, and we turned that energy into some smoking-hot sex.”

Of course, this being a porn flick, the wrestling match quickly becomes a lusty exchange between the two ladies. This, people, is what “make love, not war” looks like. Watch a clip below:

Tila Tequila is Preggers… With Her Brother’s Baby

December 22, 2009 Hollywoody, News No Comments

Well, sort of. The MySpace sensation and reality TV star Tila Tequila has announced that she is acting as a surrogate for her brother and his wife.

No word yet on whether this is the biological child of her brother and his wife (via in vitro), his brother and an egg donor, or the singer-cum-reality star’s biological baby that she is giving up for adoption to the couple.

We’re guessing it’s not the last, seeing as Tila Tequila has been sporting a (possibly fake, but, hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?) 18-carat diamond from her fianceé, the Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson.

Then again… this is Tila Tequila. So you never know.

Madonna: Shoes Over Sex

December 19, 2009 Hollywoody, News 1 Comment

Looks like the material girl is making a comeback.

Once fond of boasting about her incredible sex life with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, Madonna would now rather strut Choos than knock boots.

The designer Jimmy Choo recently told the U.K.’s Daily Star that Madonna says splurging on a pair of his creations is better than sex.

Look, I love shoes as much as the shoe fetishist next door, but come on.

Then it all comes together: the 51-year-old singer is currently dating 23-year-old model Jesus Luz. I just can’t imagine a man knows much of anything about fulfilling a woman before 30. Shop away, girlfriend.

Lady Gaga: Afraid of Intimacy or Sex?

December 10, 2009 Culture, Hollywoody, Music No Comments

ladygagaHere’s the issue with euphemisms: they confuse the fuck out of people.

Recently several news outlets reported that Lady Gaga had once been afraid of sex. Or intimacy. Or both. They’re not the same thing and anyone with an ounce of gray matter knows it, but because the media is either terrified of talking about sex truthfully or eager to exploit a juicy headline, we’ll never know which.

A cursory listen of Gaga’s albums suggests she has no issue with sex (how many women do you know will so readily admit they wanna take a ride on your disco stick?). Songs like “Poker Face” and “I Like It Rough” off The Fame, on the other hand, clearly illustrate a fear of intimacy:

Your love is nothing I can’t fight,
can’t sleep with the man who dims my shine.
I’m in the bedroom with tissues and when
I know you’re outside banging but I won’t let you in.
‘Cause it’s a hard life, with love in the world
and I’m a hard girl–loving me’s like chewing on pearls.

On her new album, The Fame Monster, the track “Bad Romance” also alludes to this fear–and don’t get me started on the music video. Following an oversexualized walk down the aisle, Gaga and her groom are consumed by flames, which leave the man a charred skeleton.

I want your love and I want your revenge.
I want your love, I don’t want to be friends.
I don’t want to be friends.
No, I don’t wanna be friends.
I don’t wanna be friends!
I want your bad romance.

The cat’s out of the bag. I love Lady Gaga because every little girl who’s terrified of intimacy needs an anthem. So much the better when an artist gives you a handful.

I wanna roll with him, a hard pair we will be.
A little gambling is fun when you’re with me–I love it.
Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
and baby when it’s love if its not rough it isn’t fun.

A morbid part of me can’t wait to hear her fall head over heels. I’ll tell you one thing–I won’t be satisfied unless it’s as bloody as Courtney Love’s “Uncool.”

Jared Leto: “Rock and Roll Has Gotten Really Asexual”

December 9, 2009 Culture, Hollywoody, Music No Comments

A few weeks ago, Sex and the 405 did two lists of the music we’d like to boink to: 15 High Energy Songs To Have Sex To and Songs To Be Seduced To.

jaredletoThere is a mix for every brand of passion, you’ll realize, if you take enough time to think about it. But if you’re not the sort of person with that kind of time on your hands (i.e., funemployed like moi), you’re in luck.

Introducing 30 Seconds to Mars’ This Is War: hands down the sexiest album of our time.

“We spent two years of our lives working on that record, and it was us against the world,” frontman Jared Leto told MTV last month. “There were times that it was overwhelming. Everything that was going on was brutal, but there were beautiful moments as well… It was a case of survival, to tell the truth.”

I had the pleasure of meeting Leto on Dr. Drew’s Loveline earlier tonight. During a break, I asked him whether he realized 30 Seconds to Mars was creating the ultimate soundtrack of desire.

“Well, a lot of songs are very sexual in nature,” he told me. “I think rock and roll has gotten really asexual.”

That’s something he felt 30 Seconds to Mars should take on.

“That’s obviously a big part of all of our lives, and I thought it important to address some of that,” Leto said.

They did a good job. Never has an album so powerfully mixed animal desire, desperate want, angst and fantastic soul licking as This Is War does.

“We were literally having to kill ourselves at times. I had it written on the wall: ‘Kill yourself to finish.’ There were no other options,” Leto said. “So we did that. It was a time to redefine, rediscover, reinvent, reinvest in each other.”

Spoken like a true lover.

Get the album on AmazonMP3 for $9.99.

Hey, Guys–Is It Cheating If It’s With Another Girl?

December 4, 2009 Culture, Hollywoody No Comments

Marriages are like snowflakes. They’re pretty different, one from the next. And the people in them find a way to make them work.

Sometimes this involves extra-curriculars. I have some friends in the adult entertainment industry who have an established “if there’s money involved, it doesn’t count,” rule. In my marriage, ex-husband told me I could hook up with other girls–as long as he got to watch and she and I didn’t have a close relationship.

Usually, you know this kind of thing, either because you’ve discussed it, or because you can intuit what’s OK and what crosses a line.

Not Fergie. The Sun recently reported the Black Eyed Peas bombshell had been surprised to find from her therapist that girl-on-girl play counts as cheating.

“I’ve had a lot of fun with women, and I’m not ashamed of it,” Fergie said. “But just because I enjoy women doesn’t mean I’m allowed to have affairs in my relationship. I learned through talking with my therapist that it is still cheating even if it’s with girls, so there is a rule there.”

This comes on the heels of accusations that her husband Josh Duhamel had a hot affair with a stripper. I can’t help but wonder whether casting herself as the cheater is a way to help herself cope.

Whatever the case, I wouldn’t give a hoot what my therapist thought constituted cheating in a marriage. This is the kind of thing you really should be talking about with your partner.

What do you guys think? Is it cheating if she’s doing it with another girl?

Carmen Electra’s Lesbian Sex Tape Leaked!

November 19, 2009 Hollywoody, News, Sex Tape No Comments

carmen

Oh, yum, yum. Another sex tape has leaked and this one features the delectable and coordinated Carmen Electra–with a woman!

We don’t know when the tape was filmed or how it got out and Perez Hilton is speculating that Electra’s camp released it themselves. I have no idea, nor do I care. This has to be one of the best-performed sex tapes I have ever seen.

And I am quite the avid watcher.

UPDATE: Electra’s husband Dave Navarro digs the girl-on-girl action. If you can name one person who doesn’t, let me know, I’ll send you Sprinkles.

Liz Hurley is Hot for Beef

November 12, 2009 Hollywoody, Noms No Comments

hurleyWhen I hear the words “Elizabeth Hurley” and “Guilt-Free Snack,” beef jerky is the last thing on my mind.

But here it is, fresh from Hurley’s own 400 acre organic farm in Gloucestershire: Hurley Jerky.

Platforms are a thing of the past. In a world where singers can make fragrances as well as perfumers and socialites can cut a record without an ounce of talent, it figures a model/actress would be making our snacks.

We’ll just file this one under the “hot women can do no wrong” category.

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.
