Take note: just in case you are planning to see “The Hunger Games” this weekend — I think most people are, right? — legendary sex advice columnist Dr. Ruth (yes, she’s still alive and kicking!) took to Twitter to issue a warning! She says that the flick’s violent nature makes it a bit of a boner killer. The good doctor recommends that you and your date bone before the movie. We thank her for the advice.
Mike Stone, an 18-year-old high school student, landed his dream date for prom. The Minnesota teen launched a Twitter campaign to try to get adult film star Megan Piper to accompany him to the big dance. Megan agreed under the condition that Mike cover her travel. But the faculty did not agree. District officials claim that Megan’s presence at the prom “would violate school policies pertaining visitors.” Mike is devastated, Megan is “not thrilled” but understands and Mike’s parents are furious about being publicly “embarrassed.” Twitter followers have launched the hashtag #Porn4prom to overturn the school’s decision, but I don’t think that’s happening. The principal advised Mike to pick another date.
I think I actually agree with the principal on this one. As a former teacher, I know that you have to be very careful about what you endorse — or at least appear to endorse. Even if you’re not directly saying, “Hey kids, it’s cool for you to look at porn.” A “yes” to a porn star at prom can be construed as an endorsement. And remember, many the students are likely under the age of 18. Sorry Mike, you may want to try going to prom with someone a little bit less provocative. [NY Daily News]
So maybe you’ve seen the stuff about the dolls: “Lars and the Real Girl”, “My Strange Addiction.” You are probably up to date on your objectum sexuality: The “30 Rock” where James Franco’s in love with a Japanese sex pillow or the woman who recently professed her love for the Statue of Liberty. And maybe you thought, “Weird to think that stuff is out there. Weird to think that people are into that kind on thing.” Well, if there’s one sure thing besides death and taxes, it’s that anything weird can only get weirder. So here’s the new thing, the latest and most extreme version of the fetish: Sex Robots! That’s right! Step right up for your partially functional Sex Robot! As you learn more about the Sex Robot community, you’ll learn that, actually, it’s very gauche to call it a “Sex Robot.” So call it a “SexBot.” Go on. Get familiar. Keep reading »
John Hart and Dennis Mayer, both of Southern California, were arrested this week on the Caribbean island of Dominica after they were seen “naked, fondling each other” from the balcony of their cabin Celebrity Summit cruise ship in plain sight of people on land. Both seafaring sodomites plead guilty in court today to “indecent exposure” but claimed they weren’t committing public acts of buggery. ”They were struck by the beautiful mountains, the clean and clear fresh air and were having a few cocktails, and so threw caution to the wind,” their lawyer told the Dominican court. Cocktails? Fresh air? Beautiful mountains? Suuure they were just hangin’ out.

I’ll admit I was skeptical when I heard that the White House was holding a technology challenge for developers to create an app that would help prevent sexual violence. All of the stuff that I believe can change the prevalence of sexual violence — harsher punishments for criminals, a cultural change on what consent means, a modification of the way we use alcohol and drugs — cannot be found in the App Store. But I’m impressed — very impressed — by the contest’s winning app called Circle Of Six. Keep reading »
