Dick pics on Twitter or love children, might force resignation for some politicians, but for others, a scandalous sexual history is just a way to make a name for yourself before entering the political arena. Remember porn star Mary Carey’s run for Governor of California in the 2003 recall election? Oh, and her 2006 bid for Lieutenant Governor?
Before you roll your eyes and think, Only in California, let me introduce Diana Pang of China. The 40-year-old former softcore porn star, who is known by her stage name “Peng Dan” in Hong Kong, is the latest to follow the path from porn to politics. Keep reading »
For those of you who don’t know the name John Friend, he is the founder of Anusara yoga — a form of Hatha yoga that focuses on the universal principles of alignment, life-affirming philosophies and heart-oriented expression — who found himself at the center of a highly publicized sex scandal last year. There were rumors of him practicing “sex therapy” on his students, including off the charts inappropriate stuff like massaging a woman’s urethra to heal her migraines and exchanging naked photos with a married student he was allegedly helping overcome early life trauma. The most outrageous rumors were those of a secret Wiccan sex coven within the Anusara community called the Blazing Solar Flames. Keep reading »

Wow, the tale of Italian prime minster Silvio Berlusconi keeps getting more and more sordid. This week, Italian prosecutors have charged eight people with sending prostitutes to Berlusconi’s infamous Bunga Bunga parties. The leader of the prostitution ring is one Giampaolo Tarantini, who is also being investigated for blackmailing Berlusconi in exchange for keeping his mouth closed about what went down. Currently, investigators are pouring over transcripts of conversations captured via wiretap, and are finding all sorts of scandalous details. Like that a famous Italian actress was allegedly offered a high profile national television gig if she’d sleep with Berlusconi. And in another phone conversation, between Berlusconi and a newspaper editor, Berlusconi is rumored to say that German chancellor Angela Merkel is “an unf**kable fat a**.” Yes, really.
And therein lies a big problem.

It’s been a month or two since we had a good political sex scandal. But you didn’t think those politicos had cleaned up their act or learned what a terrible idea it is to text/email flirt and/or take sexy photos of yourself, did you? Of course not! The latest scandalize involves Roberto Arango, a conservative politician in Puerto Rico. He has resigned from his territory’s Senate after some images that look an awful lot like him appeared on Grindr, the notorious gay cruising app. One of the images shows a man sans shirt, wearing a necklace that Arango has been photographed with. Another would make Anthony Weiner blush. It shows a man naked and on all fours, taken in a mirror from behind. Arango has not said the images are of him, but he has stepped down from his post with this oddly Weinerian sorta-denial: Keep reading »
Over the past few years working at The Frisky, I have covered an exorbitant number of sex scandals. It’s pretty clear to all of us that sex scandals are cropping up more and more frequently, for both politicians and celebrities. It’s unclear whether people are stepping out more on their marriages, or if technology (texting, Twitter, Facebook) leaves people more vulnerable to being caught, or if our 15-seconds-of-fame culture leads second and third parties to step forward and soak up the limelight more than they would have in the past. But it’s clear that something is certainly up. Insert Weiner joke here.
Oddly, through the sex scandal onslaught, I feel like we’ve learned an awful lot. After the jump, 45 lessons—both big and small—that recent sex scandals have taught us. Who knew they were so educational? Keep reading »
So this is what those crazy coeds are up to these days? Things have changed since I was in college and we had the decency to wait until the sun went down. Two USC Trojans had no problem doing it doggie style in full view of the quad in broad daylight. Unfortunately, the male fornicator, a Kappa Sigma frat boy, was excused from the brotherhood over his public display of manhood. The thrill of exhibitionism aside, I hope they had the forethought to put on a Trojan. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
Most of us keep something of a running tally in our heads of all the people we’ve fooled around with, but few of us would ever dream of putting that information into a PowerPoint presentation. Yet that’s exactly what one graduating Duke University senior did.
And now the PowerPoint — complete with photos of each conquest — has become a viral Internet sensation. Keep reading »
