When the women of the small African country of Togo want something, they truly take one for the team: in order to urge the president of Togo to resign, the women are holding a sex strike. A civil rights group called Let’s Save Togo is encouraging women to withhold sex from their husbands for one week in hopes it will push men to oust the current president. (At least one man already has suggested a shorter time period — two days — instead.) I confess to not understanding much about the culture of Togo but it seems that even withholding sex as part of a political protest might not be easy for wives: One woman told the AP it will be “easy for me to observe it” but she is “not sure” her husband would “accept” the strike; another woman told the AP that “I know my husband will not let me complete it … He likes that too much.” Sex strikes have had successes before, however: The leader of the women’s wing of Let’s Save Togo said the group is taking their cue from Liberian women, whose 2003 sex strike helped bring peace to the country. And of course there is the famous Greek play “Lysistrata.” Good luck, ladies. [San Francisco State]
In college, I was madly in love with a guy named Elijah who looked like Denzel Washington. We were both undergraduate acting majors, and I spent the whole of freshman year ogling his perfect face, and perfect bottom. All I wanted out of life was the chance to have a romantic make out session with him, and seeing as how Elijah actually asking me out on a date was as likely as the Second Coming of Christ, I knew I’d have to be the one to make a move.
Dreams do come true, you see. It’s just, they tend to take an awful lot of work.
A holiday soiree was coming up at my acting school and I thought it the perfect opportunity for a casual but flirtatious conversation between and Elijah and me. There’d be free drinks and dancing and I planned to wear this slinky, red acrylic number. I also planned for Elijah to be drunk enough to think Sara Barron sure looks good in that slinky, red acrylic number. I bought my college friend, Melanie, along with me so she could act as personal cheerleader. “Go! Go! Go!” she’d shout whenever she saw Elijah disengaged from other conversations. I procrastinated for hours, however, until her enthusiasm waned. Keep reading »
Whoopee, tonight is the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 19! The college edition, or something. I really hope Tyra has some new stuff in store. I mean, after 18 seasons, things get stale. Although I have no commentary to offer as of yet, I honor the return of “ANTM” with this genius morphing of Tyra Banks and a nipple. Never would have thought of combining these two, but I’m jealous of the person who thought of it first. This gave me lots of new morphing ideas. Going to MorphThing.com, the site that makes it all possible, to screw around. [Mean Plastic]
Since watching the video of Maria Louise Del Rosario getting her boyfriend’s name tattooed in her asshole, I’ve had a lot of questions. Many of them were answered in her interview with The Broward-Palm Beach New Times’ music blog Country Grind. Like, she got her first anal tattoo at age 19 and, while she was in jail, her fellow inmates nicknamed her d**k s**t. All very informative, but my remaining questions were more, well, technical. So I spoke with tattoo artist Myles Karr, co-owner of Three Kings Tattoo in Brooklyn, to get his take on this whole anal tattoo business. What you should know if you want to get your butt hole tattooed after the jump. Warning, the content is slightly graphic.

“I try to do something fun with her every day. I just consider myself to be especially blessed, and people who knock porn, well, it affords me to be with my daughter … [When she's old enough] I’ll tell her Mommy has a job that some people don’t approve of, but Mommy’s proud of it and it’s for adults … I wouldn’t encourage [her if she wants to go into the adult industry when she grows up.] It’s not because I would have a problem with what she was doing. My concern would be the way people would treat her. I just don’t want that for her. It’s a lot to shoulder when you decide to be in this business. For every fan I have, there are 10 people who really think I should be dead.”
– Stormy Daniels talks to the The Daily Beast about how porn stardom and motherhood co-mingle. You may remember Stormy as the adult actress who ran for Louisiana state Senate. Or the woman who was arrested for beating up her former husband back in 2009. Since all that hoopla died down, things have changed for Stormy. She found a new boyfriend, Glendon Crain, and the two started a family. What Stormy has to say on the subject is actually rather interesting. On the one hand, she’s not ashamed of her profession, but on the other, she understands how it might present difficulties for her daughter. I suggest you read the whole interview. There’s some other stuff she gets into about being scared that the other mothers will find out what she does for a living and punish her daughter for it. [The Daily Beast] [Photo credit: Penthouse]
