In case your first sexual experience wasn’t awkward enough, Alina Percea, the 18-year-old who auctioned her virginity on a German website to help pay for college, is dishing all the details of her experience. Proving he’s a real romantic, the 45-year-old Italian businessman whose $13,600 bid won the auction paid to fly Alina to Venice — after she underwent to medical exams to prove her virginity. In Venice, the two toured the city before retiring to a luxury hotel for the main event. “‘We kissed, then undressed each other,’ Alina says. ‘I’d never done that before, so I was nervous. He laid me on the bed and started kissing my body, then we had sex. I was attracted to him, so I enjoyed it, even though it was quite painful.’” The next morning Alina, who, as part of the auction, didn’t use protection, enjoyed breakfast with the winning bidder “like any other couple” and took a morning-after pill. The romance doesn’t stop there, guys! “He told me he’d like to see me again, and I agreed.” Although the money raised fell short of the $75,000 she hoped to earn, she says, “I hope to see the man again. And next time I won’t make him pay!” Awww. [via DailyMail] Keep reading »

Space mission. Space station. Space junk. We’re proud of space-loving astronaut Megan McArthur, who’s on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis with six dudes.

We’re not exactly bug lovers. We’ll tolerate a ladybug, butterfly, and sometimes even a dragonfly. But we absolutely fell in love with this Ants Necklace by Netherlands designer Ineke Otte. The only problem? We couldn’t find a site where we could purchase it in a language we can read. To satisfy our current insect obsession, we found other cool jewelry that features bugs at their best — dead, fake, or bejeweled.
No Shirt, no shoes, big problem! After a long day of swimming and drinking, West coaster Annette Hurd was involved in a little accident. Rather than stop her vehicle, she fled the scene. And drove more than 50 miles before stopping. Even with police cars and helicopters tailing her. Why? “I was worried about losing my dog,” she says.
Reaching speeds of 100 mph, this high-speed chase ended in Sacramento when police used a patrol car to ram Hurd’s sweet ride to a stop. (And by “sweet,” we mean she was driving a Geo Tracker. Hottt.) This chick jumped out of her car, wearing no shoes and a pink tankini, and threw herself, mullet and all, onto the pavement. She was handcuffed and carted away. [AOL]
Looks like her dog had to spend the night alone after all. Keep reading »
