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.

Coming Soon: AIDS Vaccine?

November 19, 2009 Health, News No Comments

AIDS. Genital herpes. Urinary tract infections. Many such horrors could be a thing of the past in as little as five years, reports the Huffington Post. With prescription drug sales slowing, capitalism and fear over the Aporkalypse have effectively given the vaccine industry a shot in the arm (har har, I had to, get over it).

“Even if a small portion of everything that’s going on now is successful in the next 10 years, you put that together with the last 10 years (and) it’s going to be characterized as a golden era,” says Emilio Emini, Pfizer Inc.’s head of vaccine research.

Unlike medicines that treat diseases, vaccines help prevent infections by revving up the body’s natural immune defenses against invaders. They are made from viruses, bacteria or parts of them that have been killed or weakened so they generally can’t cause an infection.

The last decade brought breakthrough vaccines against pneumococcal disease and rotavirus – two of the world’s top killers – meningitis, cervical cancer and more.

Better technology to create and mass produce vaccines is bringing progress in preventing tropical dengue fever and new threats like superbugs MRSA and C. difficile, even ending addiction to cocaine and nicotine. Success on some vaccines in development, particularly for Alzheimer’s and AIDS, likely would bring billions a year in sales.

SILF: Sandwich I’d Like to Fuck (Really? WTF)

November 19, 2009 Noms, OMGWTFBBQ 2 Comments

Sex and sandwiches. If you’ve been following Sex and the 405 for any amount of time, you know these things go together famously. You know, as in sex and then a sandwich. Or sandwich and some sex.

Heavy.com had a different idea. They recently conducted a quickie informal survey about the best sandwich to have sex with a poll of over 1,000 people in a variety of locations and demographics across the country.

The results? Apparently the classic ham and cheese is the noms equivalent of the girl next door.

“Over a third of respondents chose this as the sandwich they would most like to ravish,” writes K. Thor Jensen. True to stereotype, respondents’ reasoning went along these lines:

“I would like to have sex with this sandwich because it is fully dressed, and I like to unwrap it piece by piece. It exites [sic] me much and gives me added pleasure.”

“BECAUSE IT IS VERY HELPFUL TO REGAIN MY ENERGY VERY FAST ALSO HELPFUL TO GO OTHER SEXUAL INTERCOURSE VERY QUICK.”

“It would be this one because it looks most similar to the relevant parts of my other sex partners.”

“It seems like it would like to cuddle afterwards.”

I’m still trying to figure out how I would have sex with a sandwich–this is totally not what I meant when I wrote Is Food The New Sex? last week, btw–but, hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it… or at least until someone blogs about it.

Takers? That baby could use some of your special sauce.

OK, I’ll stop now.

Woman With Medical Condition That Gives Her 300 Orgasms A Day Finds Man To Satisfy Her!

November 17, 2009 Health 1 Comment

Extra! Extra! Leave it to The Daily Telegraph to get you with a header like that.

The Telegraph recounts the story of Michelle Thompson who thought, until recently, that she was simply too demanding for men to keep up with her sex drive. Turns out she has Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome, or PSAS, which sounds hot, until you read in-depth.

First documented in 2001, PSAS is spontaneous and persistent arousal, unrelated to any feelings of sexual desire. Arousal caused by the syndrome can last for days or weeks at a time and can be so intense as to completely disturb the life of the afflicted. Orgasm only provides temporary relief–if any at all.

In The Telegraph‘s piece, Thompson employs the appropriate levity and no time is spent going in-depth to get a sense of what it means to live with PSAS.

Dr. Irwin Goldstein, a professor of surgery at UC San Diego and the head of the Sexual Health Program at Alvarado Hospital, is one of the few researchers studying PSAS today. In an interview with ABC, he described it as: “it’s spontaneous, intrusive, and unwanted genital arousal consisting of throbbing, pulsing or tingling without the person’s sexual interest or desire.”

Dr. Goldstein estimates thousands of women suffer from PSAS, but the actual number is not known because so few seek a doctor’s help — and most doctors do not know about it.

“Every lecture I give on this, there’s always smirks in the audience: ‘Oh I wish my wife was like this.’ These are professional physicians,” Dr. Goldstein said. “And I said, ‘No, no, you’re, you don’t really want this. You do not want your wife to have this, please.’”

Thanks, Telegraph for helping perpetuate a myth.

Students Think Durex Condoms Are Lame

November 14, 2009 Health, News, Safety 1 Comment

The D.C. Council Committee on Health recently conducted a survey of D.C. high school students attitudes about sex ed, which found that students are unimpressed with the curriculum. Surprise, surprise.

What is most interesting about this study to me is not so much that most teens think talking to a school nurse is like talking to their mom, but that they think Durex condoms are lame.

According to The Washington Post:

Durex condoms, the brand widely distributed by the Health Department under a contract, are considered lame and more likely to pop or break, students said. They said they prefer Trojan or Magnum.

Youths “have very strong opinions about particular brands of condoms,” the researchers wrote. “These opinions . . . factually correct or not, play an important role in a youth’s decision to use a product.”

Are you listening, Durex?

Allergic To You

November 13, 2009 Health, News 2 Comments

A man and a woman fall in love. A man and a woman get married. A man and a woman have sex for the first time without a condom. A woman breaks out in hives.

That’s essentially the story of Mike and Julie Boyde, a couple living in Pennsylvania.

“Pretty much right after [he ejaculated], I knew something was not right because I was in a lot of pain,” Julie said in a recent interview with ABC. “The pain that I was feeling was inside, kind of like, somebody was sticking needles up inside of me and like a burning, like really painful burning. Was there something wrong with me? Was there something wrong with him?”

The couple explored the possibility that one of them had a disease but tests revealed nothing wrong with either one of them.

That’s when a friend of the bride’s suggested she might be allergic to her new husband.

“And after they said that, I’m like, you know, it kind of crossed my mind. Could that really be possible? So, I kind of went home that night and did a little research on the computer,” she said.

As it turns out, it is possible to be allergic to another person.

“The body recognizes semen as a foreign protein just as it would recognize a peanut allergen or pollen,” Dr. Andrew Goldstein, director of the Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders in Annapolis, MD, told ABC. “So you have swelling, you have itching, you have inflammation of the nerve endings.”

She’s not alone: 20,000 to 40,000 may suffer from this condition, known as “seminal plasma hypersensitivity.”

Shocker! Lube Makes Sex Feel Good

November 13, 2009 News, Research No Comments

Surprise! An Indiana University study has found that lubricant use during sexual activity contributes to more pleasurable sex.

The study was conducted by Debby Herbenick, associate director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University’s School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. It involved involving 2,453 women ages 18 to 68 who used one of six different water- or silicone-based lubricants.

The study also found that side effects were rarely associated with lubricant use; vaginal tearing occurred during less than 1 percent of vaginal intercourse events and genital pain was reported in less than 5 percent of intercourse acts when lubricant was used.

Mapping Sex

November 13, 2009 geek, Technology No Comments

It’s the age of oversharing, baby, and it just got better.

Introducing, I Just Made Love–think Foursquare, only instead of marking places you’re hanging out, you mark places you’re getting down.

Unlike Foursquare, of course, which immediately lets all your friends know where you’re at, IJML simply marks the space on the map, keeping your identity off the map–unless you let us know who you are in the comments section when you input other details of your tryst, of course!

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.

Today’s Special: Naked Palin Ex

November 11, 2009 News, Politically Erect No Comments

Levi Johnston won’t let us forget him.

Cast as boy of the moment for his association with the family of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential elections, Johnston was just as quickly forgotten once Obama won, only occasionally making the tabloid circuit when Palin, the grandmother of his child with Bristol Palin, slammed him for something he’d said (which no one had paid attention to until she made a fuss about it).

And today, Johnston graced Playgirl in the buff.

Sarah Palin has made her views clear about how she feels about Johnston: “those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention and are likely to say and do anything for even more attention.”

Sweet–what will he do next? Whatever it is, you can bet we’re going to have front row seats. That’s the nature of those who ride to fame on the coattails of scandal. Bring it.

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.
