This weekend’s #CelebGate nude photo leak — also known as “The Fappening” — has gotten even more unsavory. Amongst the many hundreds of alleged celeb nude photos — stolen from personal smartphones and hard drives by hackers and then uploaded to 4chan and Reddit — are a handful of photos of gymnast McKayla Maroney, who, her rep confirmed, was underage at the time they were taken. That, according to Reddit administrators, constitutes child pornography; a post on the Reddit community r/TheFappening, which is where the bulk of the leaked photos have been posted and shared, says that the group’s moderators have been informed of Maroney’s underage status and that they’re urging members to no longer share those images, lest the entire community get banned.

Nick Offerman, who brings us the beloved Ron Swanson on “Parks And Recreation,” teamed up with Mashable to read some of the most brilliant tidbits from the subreddit r/ShowerThoughts and raise money for charity: water. Watch and expand your mind. The shower is, after all, the place where we come up with our most (useless) profound thoughts. [Mashable]
This month, Tim Ferriss of The 4-Hour Work Week and a bunch of his dude readers are going without booze and masturbation in order to up their testosterone levels and be, um, greater in general, I guess. I don’t currently possess the aversion to Tim Ferriss as a human being that the incredibly witty Samantha Allen does (my attitude is somewhere along the lines of “Who? Oh yeah, him”), but I am, at least, very skeptical about this no-masturbation-as-leveling-up thing.
No-masturbation challenges abound on the internet, not least of all in /r/NoFap, where I originally came across the concept. Their no-masturbation argument goes something like Ferriss’s spiel: If you quit jacking off, you’ll be more productive, your testosterone levels will increase and your interpersonal relationships will improve (they’re fuzzy on what that means). The no-fap pitch tends to be heavy on the science, but it’s not great science — even Your Brain On Porn, on which NoFap relies for a lot of its information, has noted that masturbation does not cause a decrease in testosterone levels, and although doctors agree that orgasms from sex and orgasms from masturbation are different and there are risks to compulsive masturbation, they have more to do with chafing and addiction than endocrine levels.

Here’s something I kept private for a good long time: I was, once upon a time, jane_doe_eyed and RexyRockit on Reddit, and specifically on Reddit’s GoneWild subforum. Ta-da! Hello. You can see a lot of my skin on the Internet. Someone reading this might have pictures of me cached on their hard drive. Nice to meet you. Keep reading »
Step right up, step right up! See the rarest penile anomalies in the world with the touch of your fingertips. Man with two dicks, step aside. The latest sexual sideshow attraction on Reddit is the E.T., the man with the extra testicle.

Martha Stewart, the original domestic diva, did an Ask Me Anything Q&A on Reddit today, fielding questions about homemaking, cleaning, etiquette, cooking and her personal life. As you might expect, the always gracious but opinionated Martha took a hard stance against such things as tattoos (“I would not EVER, EVER deface my body with tattoos”), online dating (“Old news”) and truffle oil (“It is ruinous of most recipes”), but evaded answering questions about her past, specifically her time in prison. She did, however, answer one fan’s request for sex advice. Keep reading »
