“If I really wanted fame or attention, I probably wouldn’t have tried to remain anonymous (for as long as I did). I probably would’ve came out sooner with everything. And to be honest, I wouldn’t have given away the exclusive photos and the transcripts of our conversations for free to Nik Richie if I was looking to gain from it. … Once my identity was leaked, I felt like I had no choice. It was like, “You might as well speak for yourself, otherwise everyone else is going to try.” … I’m not saying I had no choice to do the photo shoot, but once my face was out there, it was like, You might as well capitalize on it while you can. Because what am I going to do? Hide in a cave and pretend I don’t exist for the rest of my life? … I don’t feel like I exploited [anything] and I don’t feel like I’m being exploited either.”
– I fail to be titillated by anything Sydney Leathers does at this point. Between the masturbation porn, the visit to the Howard Stern show, the bikini photo shoot, and that service piece she wrote for xoJane about how to seduce a politician, I’m burnt out on ol’ Syd. (But in case you’re wondering, “Leathers” is a German last name. Of course it is.) [Complex]
Sydney Leathers, former paramour of distinguished NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, shall not go softly into the night! No, no, between ratting out Weiner for his second sexting scandal and taking meetings with Vivid porn execs, Leathers also found time to conduct a little bikini photoshoot on the beach in Santa Monica. I dig her retro swimsuit and extensive array of tattoos. I didn’t realize Weiner had such edgy taste. Anyway, the clock is ticking down on Sydney’s 15 minutes, so click through for more photos… [Photos: INFphoto.com]
New York Daily News: There is no one you are sexting now?
Anthony Weiner: You can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends but what we’re talking about is over a year ago.
That’s … not a “no.” But NYC mayoral candidate/sexting aficianado Anthony Weiner is a slippery one, so go figure that he wouldn’t answer this question. After the jump, here’s what Carlos Danger had to say about whether any more ladies will come out of the woodwork with additional pictures of his dick (see the others — NSFW! — here). Oh, excuse me, these ladies were his “friends.” Keep reading »
Well, this is awkward: Anthony Weiner got his ass handed to him on a platter by a New York City voter who thinks his lying, cheating self has no business running the city. Last week the bomb dropped that Weiner, who is running for mayor of NYC, carried on a sexting-and-phone-sex affair with a 22-year-old Indiana woman, Sydney Leathers, even after he had resigned from Congress over past a past sexting scandal. Weiner is adamant that he is staying in the race. Staten Island resident and retired schoolteacher Peg Brunda confronted dick pic enthusiast Carlos Danger to ask why he thought he had the “moral authority” to hire and fire educators in the NYC school system when he himself struggles with basic sexual impulse control.

This week’s Anthony Weiner dick pic scandal — part two! — reminded me of this hilarious column written by our dear Mind of Man, John DeVore. Let’s learn, from an actual man, why dudes like to send pictures of their penises. — Amelia
Men send pictures of their penises because we want the world, or the person we love, or the person we love that week, to know that we have penises. We tell ourselves it’s to make women hot and bothered, but the truth is, those pictures just make us swell … with pride. If it wasn’t aberrant behavior, we’d hang pics of our red hot on the refrigerator door like a blue ribbon from the school science fair.
I have sent one picture of my wang to one woman. We were flirting over text, and she dared me, and so I took the picture. Considering I didn’t have time to properly light my apartment, I think the photo of el generalissimo was pretty good. I framed the shot well. I mean, it was no Mapplethorpe, but it wasn’t your average Craigslist wang portrait, where all penises look like they’re attached to an aspiring sexual predator. I sent the pic as a joke, because the request was a joke. She thought the picture was funny. She thought the entire exchange between us was very funny. Too funny. It wasn’t that funny, lady. I sent a picture of my jangly-gangly as a joke, but a little awe wouldn’t have hurt. After all, while it wasn’t a serious text, I still unleashed the kraken. Keep reading »
As we’re all fairly aware, a man with a hilariously ironic name was caught in a bit of a situation in which groin and chest photographs were Tweeted to various women, some of whom he clearly did not know. And before that a football hero allegedly* sent pics of his tony weiner to a woman who did not appreciate the gesture. Here’s where Anthony Weiner (and Brett Favre) went wrong and how you can send photographs of your swimsuit zones without fear of recrimination (and only some humiliation). This is what the grownups call sexting.
1) Be sexy. For guys, tumescence is of the essence. The so-called Brett Favre picture featured a flaccid wang book-ended by Crocs. I’m not sure of a more clear way to tell a woman that you’re completely uninterested in her sexually than the combination of tacky sandal thingies and soft dinghies. For the ladies, maintain your best level of grooming, don’t get too close and show some body. Read more on Your Tango…
It ain’t a scandal until someone gives a tell-all interview to “Inside Edition.” Good one, Sydney Leathers! The progressive activist from Indiana who carried on a sexting-and-phone-sex relationship with NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has given her first TV interview. Originally, Leather had only shared all her sexts with the gossip blog The Dirty. In the clips from this interview, she rehashes everything we already know about their dirty deeds — the texts were “very explicit”; he promised to buy her a condo in Chicago where they could go have sex; he’s a total liar — but she does debut a “beauty mark” piercing above her upper lip. She also agrees Carlos Danger is most definitely a dirty old man. Oh, Sydney, I kinda like you. [Gothamist]
Once the dirty Facebook chat history between Sydney Leathers and Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner aka “Carlos Danger” surfaced, we figured it would be just a matter of time before we saw the photos referenced in the chat. I read it in its entirety last night, by the way. It was definitely dirty, but not out of the realm of what you’d imagine it would be. I wouldn’t describe it as kinky, although Weiner seems to have a bit of a high heel fetish.
There are no nude photos of Weiner’s 23-year-old chat buddy YET, but TMZ obtained this picture of Leathers topless in a thong. After the jump you can see her appeasing Weiner’s high heel fetish and posing for a selfie in some full-coverage lingerie looking like the wholesome Indiana girl that she is. And if you dare, here are pictures of Weiner’s uncensored wiener (NSFW!!!). Keep reading »
Sydney Elaine Leathers, a 23-year-old progressive activist from Indiana, has been identified by Buzzfeed as the young woman who was sexting and phone sexing Democratic New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. The former Congressman, we learned yesterday, was identifying himself online under the avatar name “Carlos Danger.”
Sydney Leathers? Carlos Danger? What, did Sarah Palin pick the names for all these people? Keep reading »
