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 »
All Plainfield, Indiana’s Trisha Elhossainy wanted to do was drive customers to her store, Trisha’s Treasures. Since, as everyone knows, sex sells, Trisha decided to hang some decidedly sexy blankets in her store windows. One blanket features a trio of blonds seen from behind: they’re wearing pink bikinis and the bottoms are thongs. But folks at the city’s municipal building across the street didn’t like the cheeks on parade, and city leaders told Trisha to take them down. She did. Now, she’s had a change of heart about censoring “the ‘mudflap girl’ blanket” and others, and she’s working with her attorney and the ACLU. She’s filed an injunction to stop the officials from interfering with her First Amendment rights. What do you think? [Fox59.com] Keep reading »
The National Enquirer planted the seed, and now everyone is trying to get to the bottom of the charges of “unwanted sexual contact” against Al Gore. On Al’s side is the fact that the police department saw “insufficient evidence” to officially charge him, and that, after giving an initial interview to the police, the masseuse canceled three appointments with officers before her lawyer explained that they’d be filing a civil case. However, the Portland Police Department’s “Confidential Special Report” and the transcript of the interview with the masseuse have been uncovered, and the charges in there are just foul. The nasty deets after the jump. Keep reading »
I almost thought my news feed would stop with the stories of Tiger Woods‘ “transgressions” now that he is back to golf and we have other philandering men to deal with, but Devon James has crushed that dream. The porn star recently claimed that her 9-year-old son, Austin T. James, is the result of a teenage fling she had with Tiger in 2000. James was among the long parade of ladies who admitted to having affairs with the golfer. She originally claimed that she and Woods had a two-and-a-half-year relationship that started when James’ friend invited her to a threesome with the golfer. Now she is saying the two-girls-one-Tiger tryst was not the first time she and the golfer came together. Keep reading »
So I know we have been going through a whirlwind of celebrity cheating scandals lately, and with some of them having over 10 mistresses, it’s hard to keep track of who is deceiving whom. But I am sure you can remember the tale of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. Almost a year ago, Sanford disappeared for several days, later resurfacing in an airport returning from Argentina. News quickly spread. Turns out he’d run off to South America to be with his “soul mate”. He also admitted to “crossing the line” with over 20 other women throughout his marriage. Somehow all this hubbub didn’t get Sanford impeached, but he was censured and served with a divorce.
Well, now South Carolina is ready to put Sanford in the past with the upcoming election to replace him. While Sanford is guaranteed to be out, it looks like scandal is here to stay. Republican Nikki Haley, running to be South Carolina’s first female governor, is accused of having several affairs. Here we go again. Keep reading »
When Jesse James sat down for his “Nightline” interview, he had an interesting explanation for why he torpedoed his marriage to Sandra Bullock by cheating with multiple women—he was abused as a child. “[My dad] beat my ass pretty good a bunch of times. I was petrified of my dad … I was a terrorized kid,” he said. “My mind rationalized [cheating], ‘Well, you know, I might as well do whatever I can to like run her off cause she is going to find out what I am anyway and leave me anyway.’”
But Jesse’s dad, Larry James, is taking serious issue with this statement, and he sat down yesterday for an interview with Radar to say that the alleged abuse never happened. “When I watched Jesse on ‘Nightline’ last night, I was disgusted, horrified, and brokenhearted to hear what my son said about me because none of it is true,” he said.
