Own A Piece Of Hollywood History

We love looking to movies for fashion inspiration but can’t imagine actually owning Marilyn Monroe’s pink dress from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” or the carpet bag from “Mary Poppins.” For starters, Marilyn’s dress would never fit. However, movie fanatics and fashion lovers who want a piece of history will want to prep for antique company Profiles

Strange Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia For Sale

I get that Marilyn Monroe was like the biggest sex symbol of all time. But how obsessed with her would you have to be to want to buy her chest x-ray? Seems creepy to me, but the auction house manager charged with selling her 1954 x-ray is confident that people will want this “ultimate look…

Auctions Are The New Auditions

Jeffrey Donovan’s much-desired butt got a little close to the casting couch Sunday night. Well, kind of. At a benefit concert, the “Burn Notice” star auctioned off two walk-on roles on the show for $18,000 each. Maybe the lucky female bidders were under the impression that the cameos involved smooching Donavan’s character (Michael Westen)? Seriously…

Screw eBay, this morning on the “The Today Show” we learned of an auction site way better (and cheaper) than Meg Whitman’s site. Retired Detective Tom Lane came up with a website to sell off all of the stolen goods police stations seize, calling it PropertyRoom.com. Profits are split with the individual precincts that hand…

Recession Special: Virgin For Sale

Last September, Howard Stern finally met a virgin — well, the first one that would get near him since high school probably, and even then I’m sure they were dubious. But Natalie Dylan, 22, isn’t a blushing, chaste, wallflower who is just too shy to let someone stick it in. She’s an outspoken self-proclaimed feminist…

Girl Auctions Off Hot Older Brothers For Christmas Money

We’ve all come up with little creative ways to cut back on spending and raise money for those holiday gifts, from taking on a second job to selling clothes on eBay. But a 14-year old Austin girl had a much better way to raise some holiday cash. She decided to pimp out her brothers.

Disturbing Trend: Virgins For Sale

Sex sells, and a virgin will cost you a million bucks. While some of us waited for that sensitive teenage boy to deflower us to the Dave Matthews Band (or, rather, the first 30 seconds of “Crash”), a few more entrepreneurial ladies won’t pop their cherry for less than seven figures.

The Daily Squeeze: Circumcision, Crazy Bras, And Producing Heirs

The rate of infant male circumcision has decreased significantly since the 1930s and 1940s, at least in the U.K. Some people see circumcision as a form of genital mutilation, and there are even operations that reverse the procedure. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? [The Times, U.K.]
Soroptimist, a volunteer organization, held its annual “Bras for…
