Perhaps Olympic snowboarder Scotty Lago should have paid more attention to the media frenzy that occurred after Michael Phelps was photographed smoking pot at a party last year? On Thursday, the adorable Scotty won the bronze medal in the men’s halfpipe. After standing on the podium and hearing the national anthem, he went out to party with some of his fellow teammates at a Vancouver nightclub. At some point during the night, Scotty encountered a young, Asian woman—who we can only assume was pretty blitzed—and a friend snapped a few photos of her smooching Scotty on the cheek, and draping herself over teammate Louie Vito. Next, Scotty draped his bronze medal around his waist, so it hung over his crotch, and the girl kissed it.
It didn’t take long for the photos to appear on TMZ. Check them out here. And it’s turned into the first Olympic sexting scandal. Keep reading »
My cell phone is more broke than I am. Over the weekend, I got a case of the butterfingers and dropped it again — now it won’t text. Wah! Is it trying to ruin my
social sex life? Without the ability to sext, my game is weak! I know a few dudes are missing my steamy messages. Before you judge typing with one hand, here’s why you shouldn’t knock it till you’ve tried it!

Because Us Weekly loves you (or maybe because it hates you), this week’s issue includes a selection of the text messages sent back-and-forth between Tiger Woods and Jaimee Grubbs in the past six months. While “I will wear you out” remains the poetic apex of the interaction, there are quite a few doozies in there. After the jump, the words that take the “sexy” out of “sexting,” plus the rules they didn’t follow that you should. Keep reading »
Did you guys know that water is wet? Yep, it’s true. Also, sexting is really popular with teens, according to an Associated Press and MTV poll. But really, there are some surprising findings here. A quarter of youngins have sent a salacious photo or video to another’s phone, and experts think sexting is related to the same reasoning that leads to high rates of teen car accidents. Sociology professor Kathleen Bogle calls it an “invincibility factor that young people feel.” Of the kids who admitted to sexting, half didn’t think of it as an infraction with serious consequences. The other half consider sexting a big problem, even though they participate. What I’d like to know is whether sexting actually causes car crashes? Like they’re so distracted by the sight of naughty images that they lose control of the wheel? [AP] Keep reading »
Back when I was in high school, a guy I was hooking up with had taken some sexy naked photos of me on my new car which I got from a dead old man’s estate sale. To celebrate my first car purchase — a ’88 Mercury Sable, truly the car equivalent of nurses shoes — I rolled around on the hood with my mom’s vintage leather skirt hiked up and no top, just like an ’80s video vixen. While my BF and I thought the naughty pics were hilarious, my dad didn’t think they were nearly as funny as we did. In fact, when he found them, I didn’t think they were awesome anymore either. Awkward! But I have to say, I am glad he found them instead of my whole school. Sadly, for a couple cheerleaders in Seattle, not only did the nude photos they took of themselves get passed around town, but the girls also got suspended — one for a month, and another for a year!
