It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from Sydney Leathers, sexting pal of Carlos Danger/former New York City mayoral candidate Rep. Anthony Weiner, and she’s back with a bang! According to an extremely creepy dude on TMZ, Miss Leathers is getting labiaplasty on her vulva and will auction off the excess labia skin encased in Lucite. Keep reading »
The polls are closed! The votes are being tallied! And waiting out the results in the NYC mayoral primary race at Anthony Weiner’s campaign party (probably outside, as I can’t imagine she’d be allowed in) is none other than Sydney Leathers! Above, is the alleged photo evidence, posted to Twitter. On one hand, it could be BS, on the other hand, COME ON Sydney Leathers would totally show up to Anthony Weiner’s campaign party! Oh look, more evidence! Oh Sydney. [Twitter (1); Twitter (2)]
It’s an exciting day in the app world. According to TMZ, Sydney Leathers has signed a six figure endorsement deal to be the new face of iHookup, a mobile app for “casual dating based on sexual chemistry.” (I think that might be code for NSA sex?) Her duties will include having an active profile and regularly interacting with users. It’s not clear what kind of interactions exactly. Sexting, I suppose. “It’s all about that instant gratification and hooking up with the right person at the right time. Sydney seems to have that nailed down!” said a rep for the company. Well, I think this might be her best business move yet. It sounds like she’ll be leveraging her skills and talents. [TMZ] Keep reading »
Can you believe it? Sydney Leathers — you remember her, right? — in our LA office! Talking about sexting with Anthony Weiner! Who woulda thunk? Okay, so the political junkie and dick pic recipient has been on a bit of a media bender, so maybe we shouldn’t feel too special. But still! Sydney was kind enough to share her thoughts on everything from conservatives’ sex lives, Weiner’s sexting skills, the legitimacy of her made-for-porn name, whether she would forgive her husband for cheating, and how her family has reacted to her newfound infamy. Check out what Sydney has to say in the video above!
Let’s talk about Sydney Leathers for a minute. Sydney Leathers is a LOT of things, but is she a bad person?
This woman has made some choices that I don’t agree with— carrying on a sexting affair with a very married Anthony Weiner (ew), capitalizing on her newfound attention by releasing a hardcore masturbation porno, penning an article for xoJane.com about “How to Seduce a Politician,” to name a few.

“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]
“Why does having a sexting affair with a married man or even doing porn make someone a bad person? Give me a break. I’m not a war criminal. I’m a human being who has made certain choices, some of which involve my sexuality…Yes, I’ve made thousands of dollars from sugar daddies. So?” begins Sydney Leathers in her xoJane piece, “10 Secrets For Seducing A Politician.”
Before we go any further here, I will say that I agree with this statement. Doing porn or using your sexuality in a way that feels empowering to earn money is not wrong. Lots of people do it and that doesn’t make them bad people. I have no problem with sex work. Until this moment, I was happy to defend Sydney Leathers. And then she goes on to say: “To Maureen Dowd and every other woman who thinks she knows anything about me — or anything about feminism for that matter — you don’t.” Keep reading »
Well, that escalated quickly. Sydney Leathers was not calling our bluff when she was seen consorting with the king of porn, Steve Hirsch of Vivid. She’s gone and filmed “Weinergate ’13,” a fully naked “hardcore masturbation porn.” According to TMZ, which watched the porn, she strips down naked and diddles herself on camera. In a patriotic-but-NSFW preview (after the jump, very NSFW), Leathers blabs about her sexting and phone sex sessions with Anthony Weiner and how he would compliment her on her breasts, ass and how her feet looked in heels. God bless America. [TMZ, Hypervocal] Keep reading »
