Sexual assault and the threat of sexual assault are used as a way to control women. Nowhere is that more present, lately, than in Egypt where female protesters have been forced to undergo “virginity tests” administered by soldiers when they are arrested and imprisoned. Yesterday, a Cairo court sided with protester Samira Ibrahim, age 25, who was assaulted with a “virginity test” after she was arrested in Cairo’s Tahrir Square in March, and ordered that the military stop forcing its way into women’s bodies. The court’s ruling claimed, “These acts involve deliberate humiliation and intentional insult to women participating in protests.” Keep reading »

Girl, we don’t need a reason to get busy! Rain or shine, spring or fall, before work or late at night, we are always in the mood to get it in. But infinitely fascinating studies about other people’s sex lives reveal that there are peak times, months, and even weather for bumpin’ uglies. According to The Daily Beast, which collected these studies, almost 10 percent of all babies are conceived during the month of December — which may mean that sperm and egg are less ripe at other times of the year, but may also mean we’re in a randy mood after a few martinis at the holiday party.

  • Is Beyoncé giving birth today? Staff at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York City have gabbed to the press that a “secret celebrity” booked the hospital’s labor and delivery suite today.

Today’s Lady News: Iranian Woman Might Be Hanged Instead Of Stoned To Death

  • Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, an Iranian woman who was sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, may be hanged instead. She was allegedly complicit with her lover in murdering her husband, although her supporters say she was forced to confess under duress. Ashtiani, a mother of two, has been imprisoned since 2006 and her impending death sentence attracted international outcries accusing Iran of human rights abuse. The prison where Ashtiani is held claims the stoning may not be carried out because it lacks the necessary facilities. [Guardian UK]

  • Two black women were found dead in Detroit, just one week after two other black women were killed. All the women have been linked to escort services on Backpage.com. For some reason, cops are not yet attributing the murders to a serial killer. [Madame Noire

25 Crazy Celebrity Face And Name Tattoos

Don’t get us wrong. We wouldn’t throw Drake out of bed for eating cookies. But we’re not quite so overcome by our ladyboners that we condone a woman getting Drake’s name tattooed on her forehead. The tattoo artist was even incredulous! “She was really psyched about it. She had the shitty font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead,” said Kevin Campbell. “She acted as if she had planned it out for a while, but I’m not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.” That didn’t stop Campbell from taking her money and putting that dopey ink on her forehead. [Celebitchy]

Somehow, Drake’s adoring fan is not at all alone in the way she shows her devotion. Many, many others have made the highly questionable decision to ink a permanent and highly realistic rendering of their favorite celebrity as a way of visually declaring, “I am ______ biggest fan ever.” Here are but a few of the most distressing …
