It’s a sign of the times in South Auckland, New Zealand, where local prostitutes are being accused of destroying street signs by using them for pole dancing routines designed to attract customers.
In the last 18 months, more than 40 poles have been bent, buckled or broken in the past 18 months and the signs, which include notices of parking restrictions, cost taxpayers thousands of dollars to replace.
Elected officials such as Donna Lee say the culprits are local prostitutes who use them like stripper poles in a dance club.
“The poles are part of their soliciting equipment and they often snap them,” she told The Telegraph. ”Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people.” Read more …
Men, how do you know you’re well-endowed? Oh, when your penis is mistaken for a weapon of mass destruction. Jonah Falcon, the man presumed to have the world’s largest penis (although Guinness World Records has not been down in his pants to confirm), aroused suspicion at the San Francisco International Airport when passing through security.
At nine inches flaccid and 13.5 inches at full mast, it’s not surprising that airport security suspected his “very noticeable” bulge might have been an explosive device. “I had my ‘stuff” strapped to the left. I wasn’t erect at the time … One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘It’s my d**k.’ He gave me a pat down … They even put some powder on my pants, probably a test for explosives. I found it amusing,” said the 41-year-old New Yorker. Falcon joked that next time he’s “just going to wear bike shorts” when traveling. Great idea, Jonah!

Sure, teeny bikinis are sexy, but they’re very likely to leave you with a nip slip situation the very second a wave hits. Yet, celebs keep on wearing them to the beach, and getting photographed with exposed nip. Will they ever learn? Probably not. But their choice of swimwear has provided us with lunch time guessing game fodder. We’re just jealous that we’re at our desks and not soaking up the sun on some tropical island. Sigh. Click through and see if you can match the nip slip with the celebrity. Whose nipple belongs inside this white bikini?
Stories of sex work are rarely ever told by the people actually doing the work. And the sex work narrative typically portrays those involved in the industry as victims, martyrs or worse — immoral harlots bent on unraveling the very fabric of society. That’s why the Red Umbrella Project (RedUP) aims to give sex workers a voice: their own. Keep reading »
The “fun gene” in the Middleton family didn’t all just go to Pippa! Some of it went to Katrina Darling, a pinup/burlesque performer who just so happens to be related to the Duchess Of Cambridge. Okay, so she is a distant cousin — but related nonetheless. Katrina Darling will shake what her mama gave her in an eight-page Playboy spread being published this September. The petite pinup has recently quit her job as a banker to become an exotic dancer full time. Maybe when things get a little boring around the palace, which I imagine is often, Kate Middleton can skip over to her cousin’s haunts to learn some burlesque moves to impress William. (Or Harry.)

One of the things that comes along with being a young and voracious reader is that people give you books to read, or recommend books to you, or require you to read books when they haven’t really thought about the consequences. After all, if it’s got a Newbery medal on it, it can’t be that bad. And so with all the lovely books we read as kids there are a number that we’d rather have not, and that we’d rather only be given to kids if you’re going to have a serious talk with them afterwards about what the book may or may not be implying about their bodies, their lives, or their futures.
