Looking for sex online? It’ll cost you. Last week the domain Sex.com was purchased for $13 million dollars — and is now the most expensive web address on the internet. The domain’s previous owner, Escom, was forced to sell after the company declared bankruptcy. The domain was first registered in 1994, by Gary Kremen, the founder of Match.com. A year later, convicted fraudster Stephen Cohen wrestled away Sex.com by claiming Kremen sold him the property. In 2004, Kremen took Cohen to court and won back the domain, which he then sold to Escom. Most recently, the domain was purchased by Clover Holdings, LLC. But apparently the price of sex has gone down in recent years: Escom purchased Sex.com for $14 million just four years ago. [CNET] Keep reading »

Over the weekend, Mee was arrested and charged with first degree murder. Mee has been charged in the shooting death of 22-year-old Shannon Griffin. According to police, Mee lured Griffin to a seedy part of St. Petersburg, FL (of course, Florida), where Lamont Newton and Laron Raiford robbed and killed him. She’s currently being held without bail in Pinellas County Jail.
Three years ago, Mee, now 19, suffered from an extended bout of hiccups — sometimes hiccuping more than 50 times in an minute. Her hiccups were cured after several weeks and in the media frenzy over her strange disorder she reconnected with her biological father. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

“Nothing ages as poorly as a beautiful woman’s ego… Beauty, unlike the rest of the gifts handed out at birth, does not require dedication, patience and hard work to pay off. But it’s also the only gift that does NOT keep on giving. It usually blossoms at an age where you’re least equipped to handle its benefits and rewards and instead take it all for granted, and by the time you start understanding the value of it, it slowly trickles away. How’s that for revenge of the ugly ones?

What’s a healthy sex life? Is it true that what’s good for some might not work for others? According to sex therapist Ian Kerner, couples should be having sex once a week, minimum. Kerner’s seeing what he calls an “epidemic” of sexless relationships and believes that things like social and economic stresses, health problems and the rise of internet porn are to blame. Reconnecting with your partner on a physical level helps reaffirm intimacy and rebuild connections. But! He says, sex isn’t just about connecting with your partner in an intimate way. It’s also great for reducing stress, boosting immunity and releasing pleasure chemicals called endorphins. Some other added benefits: steady sex helps boost confidence and has been shown to make people more successful at work.
So, does sex once a week sound like a good number to you? Too much? Too little? [CNN] Keep reading »
