Woman Attacks Gauguin Painting, Issues Homophobic Remarks

April 6, 2011 Art, Culture, News, OMGWTFBBQ No Comments

Gauguin painting attacked in Washington DC

Why would someone attack a painting? Last week in Washington DC, a visitor to the National Gallery’s “Gauguin: Maker of Myth” exhibition took hold of the frame of the post impressionist’s artist’s Two Tahitian Women, then began to pound her fist against the plexiglas protecting the painting.

A by-stander tackled the woman, enabling museum officers to step in. The woman, later identified as Susan Burns, a 53-year-old from Arlington, VA, was told her rights, then asked by an investigator why she had attacked the painting. She responded:

I feel that Gauguin is evil. He has nudity and is bad for the children. He has two women in the painting and it’s very homosexual. I am trying to remove it. I think it should be burned. I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.

Students Protest University of Southern California and Kappa Sigma Fraternity for Inaction Following Misogynist, Racist E-mail

Students protest University of Southern California USC inaction against Kappa Sigma fraternity in wake of misogynist e-mail

On Monday, over 100 University of Southern California students marched in protest of the school’s inaction in response to a misogynist e-mail said to have originated among members of the school’s Kappa Sigma fraternity.

The e-mail, a lengthy guide to living the “Cocksman” lifestyle, followed a brief introduction with the following statement before moving on to its tenets: “I will refer to females as ‘targets’. They aren’t actual people like us men. Consequently, giving them a certain name or distinction is pointless.” … Continue Reading

Bag of Dildos Links Man to Burglary

March 15, 2011 Crime, News, OMGWTFBBQ No Comments

Of all the things in the world to steal, why would you go for used sex toys? This is the sort of thing you might expect of a rejected lover, or a crazed stalker, but Mitchell Tice was apparently neither of these. No, the 40-year-old was an employee of the restaurant owned by the couple from whom he stole the goods.

Tice, the breakfast cook, took the items along with two laptops and a wig from their storage locker in January. The Florida police were tipped off when his girlfriend told detectives that he had stashed a bag of dildos under the bed and flat-out admitted he had stolen these from his employers. … Continue Reading

Cum in the eye. It happens even to the best of us.

While on the air with former Penthouse pet Sam Phillips on The Single Life, she told us that porn star and director Kimberly Kane had told her that semen is particularly painful when it gets in the eye because the sperm present are trying to impregnate the eyeball.

Say what? We hit up psychiatrist and sex therapist, Dr. Madeleine Castellanos to weigh in on the statement. … Continue Reading

Not Making Enough? It’s Because Your Vagina Stinks

Oh, Woman’s Day, you’ve really gone and done it this time. Their October 1, 2010 issue features an advertorial (usually put together by the rag and a company’s brand strategy team) for Summer’s Eve, a company that makes personal care products for women, which suggests that the best way to get a raise is to make sure one’s vagina is squeaky clean.

You think we’re kidding, don’t you? … Continue Reading

I’m Ravenous, Baby!

August 26, 2010 News, OMGWTFBBQ No Comments

When we talk about being ravenous and comment that we could just devour our lovers, well, it’s not literal. Lick, suck, nipple, bite, even. But chew and swallow? Not so much.

That could be changing. According to El Comercio, a Brazilian restaurant by the name of Flimé in Berlin is opening its doors soon and advertising that it will offer gourmet human flesh dishes, based on the customs of the Wari tribe in the Amazon, said to be cannibalistic. … Continue Reading

Bra for Baby

We here at Sex and the 405 are about education. We support sexual education, we support things like “oral sex” in the dictionary and so on. Generally, we believe kids should dress however they want and be allowed space in their discovery of identity. But this is ridiculous. … Continue Reading

The G-Shot: “So she’s enjoying penis a little bit more, then?”

The g-shot, a $1,200 injection of collagen to the g-spot that helps it become more prominent and is said to revolutionize your sex life, recently got some air-time that was… amusing to say the least. Watch the whole thing for the full lolz:

Kid Sues Mom Over Facebook Drama

April 8, 2010 Culture, News, OMGWTFBBQ, web No Comments

It was only a matter of time before it came to this, creatures. If you have a Facebook, you know first hand how angina-inducing interaction with your near and dearest can be. Unlike a social gathering or family dinner, you can’t really walk away — or try to keep things between yourself and the other person. They’re out there, breaking in real time, for all your contacts to see across the world — and to access, later (if you fail to remove the content) at their leisure.

Now, a 16-year-old in Arkansas is suing his mother for slandering him on his Facebook profile. According to ABC7, Denise New of Arkadelphia hacked into her son’s account, changed his password and posted “slanderous comments about his personal life.”

New says she sought only to monitor her son’s online interactions. The teen lives with his grandmother, who holds custodial rights, but New claims she has the legal right to monitor his online behavior. She plans to fight the charges.

Watch the report from ABC7 below:

“Amazing.”

L.A. Dudes Have Tiny Dicks

April 5, 2010 News, OMGWTFBBQ, Research 1 Comment

So get this, recently, the giant Condomania averaged the sizes of their custom-sized TheyFit condoms ordered by a sample of some 25,000 men in the U.S. between 2004 and 2010 to figure out what cities have the best-endowed men.

Los Angeles, they found, comes in at 17, a full nine places below San Francisco.

The SF Weekly wasted no time rubbing it in:

Finding a good man in San Francisco is not easy. We actually devoted a cover story to the challenging hunt. Yet apparently finding a well-endowed man is not too, umm, hard. According to stats released by internet condom store Condomania, it’s much easier in the City by the Bay than in the city of over-inflated pricks to the south, Los Angeles.

San Francisco ranked a respectable No. 8 among the nation’s 20 most populous cities, while Los Angeles came in at a stumpy 17th. And L.A. seems to be feeling a little down about their shortcomings, noting that even Ron Jeremy couldn’t carry the team. Basically they’re taking their loss like a man, concocting lame excuses about how not a lot of men in L.A. even wear condoms so the stats are skewed. Wah, wah, wah.

For all the grief we put San Diego through up here in the City of Angels, we here at Sex and the 405 have to admit that their coming in third place in the city rankings is pretty damn impressive.

And the smallest cocks? Detroit, Philadelphia, and Dallas/Ft. Worth.

Disagree? Pics or we’re not buying it!

And if you know someone who defies the results of this survey, send them a proper thank you!

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.
