Masturbation: Good For Back Pain & Your Self-Esteem Too!

Maura Kelly, a former editor for Glamour magazine, was 30 years old before she had an orgasm. Not-so-coincidentally, she was also 30 before she tried masturbation for the first time, the details of which she describes in an essay for The Daily Beast. Having waited until her late twenties to have sex — take that, Brooke Shields! — Kelly writes that she’d always found the idea of self love particularly icky. “It seemed tawdry, seedy, shameful—in a category with sex shops, colored condoms, and porn videos,” she writes. So what compelled her to finally get to get over her “masturation-block”? Back pain!

“An ex suggested that learning how to climax might help alleviate my chronic back pain. That sounded promising…. Though sexual realization didn’t seem particularly exigent, physical relief did. And because I already had a vibrator—snagged years earlier off the Glamour giveaway shelf—what did I have to lose?”

Rappers Run Out Of Bling, The Recession’s Gone Too Far!

You might think you’re hurting in the econo-slump, but just imagine if your job was to broadcast and rap about how wealthy you are? Apparently the rap industry and corresponding bling-iverse is in trouble since no one can afford white gold, diamond-encrusted giant Jesus head pendants any more! They have been forced to downgrade to smaller jewelry pieced glittered with cubic zirconia. 50 Cent recently accused rapper Rick Ross of wearing fake diamonds, which Ross vehemently denies. The Wall Street Journal says the “Bling aficionados fret that the art of ‘ice’ is being watered down” as jewelers are crafting faux bling with lower karat gold and man-made rocks. Even dental plans are in danger, there’s a website called to melt down grillz! As relatively unknown artist Doggie Diamonds the interview king says, “If you admit you wear fake jewelry, it is over for you. It’s like bragging you drive a Lamborghini when you really drive a Toyota.” [WallStreetJournal] Maybe the face of rap will be forced to change and rappers can talk about nice things now? What should rappers rap about now that excess has become excessive? My vote’s on kitties or their moms. Keep reading »

Five Things To Know About Sonia Sotomayor

This morning, President Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor, 54, to the U.S. Supreme Court as Justice David Souter’s successor. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Sotomayor would be the third woman and first Hispanic to be seated on the Supreme Court. Here’s a background check.

  1. Sotomayor was born in New York to Puerto Rican parents. She grew up in a South Bronx housing project near the old Yankee Stadium and was raised by her mother, a nurse, following her father’s death when she was 9.
  2. She loved Nancy Drew growing up (just like us!) and wanted to be a police detective, but having diabetes put a damper on that dream. An apparent pop culture-junkie, Sotomayor has said that “Perry Mason” was the reason she decided to become a lawyer.
  3. Sotomayor graduated from Princeton University and Yale University’s Law School, but she returned to New York after finishing school and now owns a condo in Greenwich Village.
  4. Keep reading »

Mom Gives Daughter Botox As Present, Daughter Becomes Addicted

Teenager Jodie King had tried several expensive anti-aging creams, but none would smooth the “wrinkles” on her forehead. So her mom, Margaret, gave her Botox injections for her 18th birthday. “Jodie’s forehead is like mine – she gets pronounced lines when she makes a facial expression. I knew Botox would solve the problem,” said Margaret. The £160 injections gifted to Jodie pale in comparison to the £45,000 Margaret has spent on cosmetic surgery for herself. Jodie is a Botox addict now, having spent £1,000 of her own money made from modeling on injections. Margaret, who has been getting the injections for 11 years and has had a nose job, two breast enlargements, a tummy tuck, and a mini-face lift, doesn’t see anything wrong with her daughter inheriting her vice. She’s even planning to give Jodie a nose job for her 21st birthday and has taken her for a breast augmentation consultation. “My mum’s always looked so glamorous and she uses cosmetic surgery and Botox to keep her looking young. I plan to follow in her footsteps,” Jodie said. “So what if I’m a teenage Botox addict? I can’t think of anything worse than looking old. I’ll always find a way to pay for Botox. Now I’ve started I can’t stop.” Keep reading »

Shun, Shag, or Marry?: Johnny Depp, Colin Farell, And Jude Law Star In “Doctor Parnassus”

Terry Gilliam is an out there director—he’s the one behind “12 Monkeys” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” His newest flick, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” premiered at Cannes on Friday. Heath Ledger was originally the star, and filming was about halfway done when…well, you know. Gilliam decided to rework the role so that Heath shares it with Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law. Hello, hot back-ups!

“Imaginarium” involves a deal with a devil, which allows people to go through a magical mirror and explore their imaginations. Uh, strange? Obviously, we wish it could have been Heath the whole way through, but we figured we’d take a look at the three megastars who filled in at the last minute. And while it’s tempting to just throw all three of these guys in the “shag” column and walk away, here’s how we’d divide ‘em up… Keep reading »

Lily Allen Calls Susan Boyle “Over-Rated”

The are two ways celebrities who need a little attention can guarantee publicity. Actually, scratch that, there are many ways celebs can get publicity, including sex tapes, pregnancy rumors, dramatic break-ups, and quickie marriages. But the two strategies that seem to be the most popular lately are the always-successful yo-yo dieting blitz, as perfected by Oprah, Jessica Simpson, Kirstie Alley, and Mariah Carey, and bad-mouthing another celeb on twitter or one’s personal blog.

Sasha Grey’s R-Rated Role, Plus Other Porn Stars Who’ve Gone Legit

sashagrey 052209 magnoliapictures m jpg
Porn Star Sasha Grey is in her first movie rated…not XXX. As in, you can actually take your parents to this one! “The Girlfriend Experience,” about a $2,000-an-hour Manhattan call girl. hit theaters this weekend and it’s been getting lots of buzz—and not just for Steven Soderbergh’s directing skills. For those of you who are not dictionaries of porn stars (I include myself in that category, by the way), Grey started her adult film career at 18. Since then, she’s been in more than 150 films, including, “Sasha Grey’s Anatomy,” “House of Sex & Domination” and “Teenage Whores” (parts 2 and 3). Soderbergh even admits he didn’t choose her for her acting merit. “I was very much counting on the fact that the interest in her would be greater than the interest in the movie.”

This got me thinking—are there any other porn stars out there who’ve made the switch to actress? Actually, the answer is yes.
