Ladies, meet Shane Ryan. He’s a crap human being. Like, crappier than Joe Francis, that “Girls Gone Wild” dude. Just how crappy is he? Ryan, a porn actor/director whose past work includes klassy flicks like “Vaginal Holocaust” and “Amateur Porn Star Killer,” is at work on a film based on Jaycee Dugard called “Abducted Girl: An American Sex Slave.” Yeah, Jaycee Dugard. As if getting kidnapped, locked in a backyard and repeatedly raped by some psycho wasn’t bad enough. According to IMDb, “Abducted Girl” is presently filming.
In an interview with CBS13, Ryan claimed, “We want to capture how sad this story is, but also how interesting. We’re trying to figure out a way to do this so it’s not exploitative.” Uh-huh. Riiiight. You just thank your lucky stars for the First Amendment! [Mercury News] Keep reading »
Ever since David Letterman and ESPN’s Steve Phillips schtupped their underlings, all the glossy women’s magazines have scrambled for a good and juicy “I slept with my boss” story. Elle is the latest lady mag to cough up an inappropriate-relationship-with-the-boss confession‚ but what’s refreshingly candid about ex-investment banker Melanie Berliet’s story is the terms of the relationship. For better or for worse, Berliet was never in love with her boss and never claimed to be. Quite the contrary: she admitted she only answered his late-night calls and replied to his sexts because she wanted “a fat bonus check.” Keep reading »
“If you’re a woman alone, you’re a victim waiting to happen!” Thank God someone is finally saying those BE AFRAID ALL THE TIME commercials are really super dumb—sensationalized “rape fables,” as our girl Sarah Haskins calls them. Not every knock at the door means a psycho burglar-rapist is afoot! Keep reading »
Don’t read this if you don’t want to cry. Police have found the body of Shaniya Davis, a 5-year-old in Fayetteville, North Carolina, who went missing last week after her mother sold her daughter’s body for sex trafficking. Shaniya’s mother, Antoinette Nicole Davis, reported her daughter missing from their mobile home last week. But surveillance video allegedly showed Shaniya entering a hotel with a man named Mario Andrette McNeill, who has since been charged with first-degree kidnapping. Earlier today, police said “reliable information” led them to Shaniya’s body on land near a roadway by Sanford, NC. Davis has been charged with felony child abuse, prostitution and filing a false police report—and being the worst mother in the history of the world. We’re not particularly religious people, but when we hear stories about kids and sex abuse, especially ones like this, we get all sentimental. Here’s hoping there’s an angel somewhere who scooped this little girl up and gave her the life she’ll never get to live. [CNN] Keep reading »
Rape sucks. So does getting mugged. But by disguising yourself as a life-sized Coca-Cola machine whenever you’re out late at night and feel threatened, you can hide from the bad guys! Seriously? Seriously. According to Bust magazine, Japanese designer Aya Tsukioka has invented an ankle-length skirt constructed from fabric that can be pulled upside down and assembled into a somewhat realistic-looking Coke machine (albeit one with feet poking out from the bottom). What inspired Tsukioka to make her safety skirt? She says a trick used by ninja assassins who would cloak themselves in black blankets in the dark.
Hopefully, while studying the ways of ninja assassins, Tsukioka picked up some self-defense moves that could actually save her because methinks this “Project-Runway”-challenge-gone-wrong won’t work. Here’s hoping she’s using the skirt as street theater to make a statement about the lengths women will go to in order to protect themselves. [Bust Magazine] Keep reading »
This weekend, January Jones
‘ guest-hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live”
turned out to be a disappointing failure. Fart jokes? Really?
But at least the “Mad Men”
princess got a few giggles out of me with a “Ladies’ Guide To Party Planning.” The best part is when she has to go to the bathroom and leaves for the woods with a paper bag. Keep reading »
For years, only six people knew the true identity of Belle, an anonymous call girl who wrote about her adventures in sex work at the blog Diary of a London Call Girl. While her blog became an international hit, she published several books, and Showtime picked up a TV series based on the book called “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” only half a dozen people in the world knew the real Belle! Many assumed the nom de plume concealed a raunchy male identity; one popular theory was that Toby Young, the former Vanity Fair journalist and author of How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, penned the blog and books.
But this weekend, Belle finally outed herself—yes, herself. “There is … an ex-boyfriend with a big mouth lurking in the background,” the Times of London reported and “outing herself while she still has a measure of control over how it happens seems the sensible option.”
Drumroll, please … Keep reading »
