I don’t know about you, but I find celebrity wax figures slightly creepy. The shiny skin, the vacant eyes, the stiff poses … a little unnerving. With the exception of Kate Winslet’s likeness, which was unveiled this week at Madame Tussauds in London. Her wax self looks practically perfect in every way in her 2011 Emmy look, just like her real self did. She joins the ranks of celebs to get waxed and put on display at museums around the world for fans to gawk at. Click on through to see more celebrity wax jobs. [Celebitchy]

We already knew that SWA (sex with animals) was bad for the soul, but the other day we learned why it is equally bad for the penis. Just so we’re all clear here, sticking a d**k in a non-human animal hole doubles the risk for penis cancer. Sure, we knew that somehow, somewhere in a very intangible, hard-to-conceptualize way, that people were doing it with animals, but we were blown away by just how many zoophiles there were out there. The stats suggested that as many as 35 percent of men in rural Brazil had engaged in bestiality at some point. But men having SWA are not only on the farm; about 36 percent of the animal f**ker population reside in big cities. So there you have it, SWA is more widely practiced than we thought. The more you know. Keep on clicking to find out about more crazy sexual practices you may not be familiar with.
About seven years ago, when I had just gotten out of two back-to-back, serious relationships, my good friend Sadie* was eager to get me to dip my toe back in the dating pool again. I was 26 years old and single for the first time in many, many years. So, basically, I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I had never really “dated” before.

We got to know each other slowly, there wasn’t any pressure, and I knew they both really cared about me. I thought this was just the way people met; that falling in love was something that happened easily. Looking back, I realize how terribly naive I was.

“The Witch Doctor Will See You Now,” a new miniseries on the National Geographic Channel, is pretty much my television dream come true. Piers Gibbon takes Americans with incurable illnesses and ailments to exotic places like the Amazon or the Peruvian rain forest to receive extreme, alternative treatments from witch doctors and mystics. You know, fun stuff like drinking snake blood and cow pee, bathing in termite guts, and sucking down hallucinogenic tea. Yay! [Live Science]
Amongst the other notable reasons that you shouldn’t have sex with animals — it’s weird, and twisted, and gross, and wrong — add elevated risk of cancer to the list. A new study found that men who engaged in bestiality at some point in their lives were twice as likely to get penile cancer and reported an overall higher incidence of STDs. The study conducted with men in rural Brazil between the ages of 18 and 80, found that about 35 percent of them reported having sex with animals likes mares, cows, pigs, and chickens ranging from monthly to daily.
