“They teach you how to center in on your own sexuality, and what it’s like to be in a power position… I was so bruised and battered. It was really, really hard but so empowering. It makes you feel so strong. I have a pole in my house now and it’s a part of my workout regimen.”

I’m still feeling unsettled about this story. Twenty-three-year-old Amanda was studying in London when she met Adam Lyons, a pickup artist famous for his manifesto, Principles of Attraction. Specifically, he was hooking up with her friend at a nightclub. But still, the two had a “love at first sight” moment. Adam ditched her friend and invited Amanda to one of his pickup artist classes and she gladly accepted. How romantic.

The Portuguese publishing partners of Playboy are getting crucified for their July issue. Their in-poor-taste cover features a racy pic of Christ cradling a nakey Mary Magdalene type. Inside the issue, there is allegedly a photo spread featuring the lord and savior observing a lesbian kiss.
Playboy Enterprises Inc. is less than thrilled about the JC spread. In fact, they want to sever ties with their Portuguese partners for neglecting to get the controversial cover approved before publication. But the pics of Christ’s res-erection may not have been meant to be exploitative or offensive—they are thought to be a tribute to Portuguese author Jose Saramago who recently passed. His last novel published was The Gospel According to Jesus Christ. So what do you think? Was this cover too blasphemous for publication? [AOL] Keep reading »
My friend stumbled upon this very unique Craigslist missed connection ad. I’m still refusing to believe that it’s real. It simply can’t be, but, alas, it’s been haunting me. You have to read the entire thing (maybe even a few times), but the gist is that a “tiny Asian girl” noticed a man ogling her on the subway. But what really got her all hot and bothered was the fact that he was … wait for it … PICKING HIS NOSE AND EATING IT! Noooooooo! But there’s more. She goes on to say, “I’m telling you all this because I want you to know that the girl whose body you were ogling today really does have this nose-picking fetish, and I want you to realize that I really did want to make a move on you once I saw you with your finger in your nose. I’m fantasizing about sitting on your lap, facing you, and taking off my top for you while I gently play with the inside of your nose with my fingers and tongue. I’ll eat your boogers in front of you, and you’ll experience first-hand how excited it makes me.” No words. No freaking words. [Craigslist] Keep reading »
“I could make an endless list of all the things I admire about him, but above all I admire his immense loyalty. I love watching him when he’s thoughtful or involved in something. I love observing him when he is talking to people. I love seeing how he deals with situations. … I could go on and on, tell you I admire him as an actor, as a father and as the man he is for me. But more than anything, I admire him as a person. Not only when he is talking to me or his mother, but as a person in the world, in all kinds of situations. I think he is magnificent. Truly magnificent.”
—Vanessa Paradis gabs to Marie Claire UK about her man of 12 years and baby daddy, Johnny Depp. I think he’s pretty magnificent, too! I guess she’s not leaving him anytime soon. I’ll have to find someone else. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
