Noooo! I just watched the documentary “Being Elmo” last month and was obsessed with what an inspiring person Kevin Clash, the man behind “Sesame’s Street”‘s most adorable Muppet, seemed to be. Consider my faith in life dashed if this story turns out to be true.
A young man, now 23 years old, has come forward saying that he had a seven-year relationship with Clash, starting at the age of 16. While Clash admits to the relationship, he denies that it was of a sexual nature until the boy was of age. Keep reading »
“The texture felt so good that I decided to rub my head and boobs all over it. It was a tree I was humping.”
– Jenny MacCarthy confesses to a sexual encounter with a tree while high on ecstasy in her new book Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic. Well, I guess that explains what was going on with that girl who was caught on video humping a tree. Maybe if I did drugs I’d find a lot more possible sex partners of the inanimate variety. Actually … I think I’ll pass. [DListed]
The New York Times Style section usually emits more groans from me than cheers. Remember that piece about how bangs are “in”? And how women wear dresses? So I was ecstatic this week to see the Modern Love essay is by Jillian Keenan, a woman with a spanking fetish who is struggling to come out about it to her boyfriend.

The survey took place at the same institution where Alfred Kinsey first published the results of his study 60 years ago, so it’s essentially an update on the sex lives of Americans.
“We thought it was time to find out how sexual behavior had changed,” said Debby Herbenick, who led the study. “It wasn’t just people who were young, people who were white or just people who had a certain level of education. The poll included all kinds of Americans.” Keep reading »
“I read a comment on YouTube that I thought would upset me — ‘Test pilot for pies’ — but I’ve always been fine with it. I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn’t.”
– Adele responds to criticism about her weight in a new book, Adele: The Biography. Did you hear that, Karl Lagerfeld? OK. Good. Now that we’re clear about where Adele stands on her weight — she’s fine with it– I move that we stop talking about it forever. [Contact Music]
