Beer Drinkers More Likely To Have Sex On A First Date

I recently canceled my OK Cupid account for the millionth time because I was sick of going out on dates with guys who weren’t actually interested in dating. But I’m happy the site exists if only because the data they release is so random and fascinating. For example, the site found that people whose taste buds are titillated by beer are a lot more likely to sleep with someone on the first date. What about wine drinkers? What about wine drinkers?! Oh wait, I know the answer to that question. [OK Cupid] Keep reading »

Scandalous! 9 Celebrity Pairs Spotted Leaving A Party Together

Over the weekend, Javier Bardem threw a party for “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky. During the shindig, two stars seemed to spend a lot of time together. People started whispering when Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn not only talked extensively, but supposedly left together. Interesting, since some people say these two are dating and have been for a few weeks now. But of course, both parties’ reps shot down this story. Sean’s say he left solo to meet friends elsewhere.

Nothing gets tongues wagging like seeing two stars leave a party together. After the jump, see which party exiting pairs later became couples and which rumors were (maybe) totally manufactured.
