Don’t Steal Sex Toys From An Ex

A man reportedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and stole the sex toys he had bought for her birthday present when they were together. After making off with the lingerie, gauntlets, shackles, and whip, Paul Ashcroft is said to have sent Claire Bainbridge a text message telling her to check her drawers. She discovered that the items were missing, and two days later they were recovered in Ashcroft’s residence. The judge sentenced him to a two-year conditional discharge, in addition to paying court costs. “This was pretty disgraceful behavior,” the judge said. “There is no excuse for doing what you did in stealing those items. I trust that the relationship has now come to an end. I have been told…each of you now has a fresh relationship. I suggest you concentrate on that.” [News Guardian, U.K.] Keep reading »

Cleavage For Charity

While boobalicious models in booze ads are known for boosting sales, this time it’s more than just for show, it’s for a good cause. A cheeky new line of wines from Cleavage Creek feature labels with sexy Breast Cancer Survivors — like Carson Daly’s mom — showing off their décolletage. Napa Valley winery owner and activist, Budge Brown, came up with the idea to raise funds for a cure after his wife of 48 years passed away from the disease which almost 200,000 women a year are diagnosed with in America alone. “My goal was to honor their courage and inspire them,” the 75-year-old proprietor said of his plans. The bottles retail for $15 and 10% of the purchase price goes to various Breast Cancer organizations. [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

Dove’s Side Of The Airbrushing Story

Dove finally issued a statement about the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty ads and whether they were airbrushed. They say that there wasn’t any major retouching on the photos, only removal of dust and minor color correction. Pascal Dangin, the retoucher, confirms this: “The recent article published by The New Yorker incorrectly implies that I retouched the images in connection with the Dove “real women” ad. I only worked on the Dove ProAge campaign taken by Annie Leibovitz and was directed only to remove dust and do color correction — both the integrity of the photographs and the women’s natural beauty were maintained.” Who can you believe?

The Duggar Family: Eternally Pregnant For Jesus

Sunday is Mother’s Day, and Michelle Duggar, 41, is pregnant with her 18th child. She has been pregnant for more than 11 years, which sounds like the opposite of fun to me, but Michelle’s husband Jim Bob says they’ll keep having children as long as God wills it. The family includes seven sisters and 10 brothers – and all their names start with the letter J (I wonder if Michelle feels left out). Do you know what this reminds me of? The woman who has 80 cats.

Yes, That Flair Does Make You Look Like A Rapist

One of the many stupid ways to waste your time on Facebook is by sending people “flair” — basically little icons users can put on their profile pages that represent their interests (i.e. a piece of flair of Harry Potter naked, or a piece of flair stating your love for boxed wine). But you can also send people flair that promotes rape! Like all of the ones above! So not funny right? I suppose the people behind the “Flair” application thought that rape was just like any issue, with a pro side and a con side and since they had so many anti-rape pieces of flair, they need to have some pro ones as well. Leave a message on the application’s wall, if this pisses you off. [Facebook: Pieces of Flair via Feministing] Keep reading »

Cuckoos Are Clever Birds

Did you know that the word “cuckold,” meaning the husband of an adulteress, is derived from “cuckoo,” a type of bird that commonly flies out of clocks? Cuckoos lay eggs in the nests of other birds, and the other birds are left to hatch and raise them (though they don’t have a clue because the cuckoo eggs look just like their eggs).

Sexified Schweppes Ad

Apparently everything is sexier in France. In this ad, Schweppes has managed to make its drinks, or at least this particular drinker of its drinks, so hot and bothered that she rolls fruit all over her naked body. Doesn’t it make you want to sip a fruit-flavored soda? No? Yeah, me neither. [via Shape+Colour]

    Should You Drink To Your Health?

    Medical studies can be very confusing and seemingly contradictory. Take studies on alcohol consumption. Sometimes we’ll read that drinking a little bit will do our bones good, and then we’ll hear that drinking even two drinks per day increases our risk of cancer. The chief of preventative medicine at Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital offered some clarification on U.S. News & World Report’s website: “First of all, no one should begin drinking alcohol in order to reap health benefits, since it’s very difficult to predict whether risks will outweigh benefits and vice versa.” Personally, I think it’s a crapshoot.
