Conservative activist James O’Keefe is catching heat for an attempt to “punk” a CNN reporter by luring her onto a “palace of pleasure” sex boat for a fake interview.
O’Keefe is best known for his involvement with the controversial ACORN videos in which he dressed up as a pimp as attempt to destroy the community organizing group. This time, his chosen satirical role wasn’t pimp, but seducer, as he set up an elaborate scheme to get CNN’s Investigative Correspondent Abbie Boudreau on a boat surrounded by champagne, strawberries, and sex toys in an attempt to embarrass the news network.
In the end, Boudreau didn’t fall for it, and bloggers are having a field day deconstructing O’Keefe’s lurid misstep.
E-Reader porn is on the rise—of course!—as sexy books are offered up inexpensive, saucy, and anonymous on Amazon Kindle’s site.
Readers have a chance to pick up books like Compromising Positions, by Jenna Bayley-Burke from Samhain Books—the two-week promo price of $0.00 means that the explicit romance novel has topped Kindle’s bestselling list this week. Other hot items include Office Slave, by J.W. McKenna, featuring the submissive BDSM exploits of an outed female CEO.
As Slate says in their slightly disparaging expose, every time a new content platform pops up, the growth of that technology is driven by pornography. Remember the VCR? And e-readers are nothing new—so get your erotica while you can, before Amazon decides to censor its bestseller lists again.
Silly Bandz are those multi-colored rubber bands in various animal and object shapes that are the current definitive fashion statement in adolescent America—and now grownup singles have adopted them as a vehicle for adult flirting.
The bands are showing up in bars and clubs these days as men and women adopt them as accessories for pick-up lines. One of the clubbers, James Santos, uses the bands as a great conversation starter. “I went on a date with a girl. She gave me one. Two days later, another girl gave me another Silly Band. I felt important,” Santos told the NY Daily News.
Other flirters like Ajah Alvarez consider the Bandz to be a great way for women to hit on a guy without coming across as threatening, “If both parties are feeling a connection, then it’s a non-intimidating way to initiate contact exchanges like numbers or Facebook pages,” Alvarez said after giving a potential mate a rubber gorilla.
In light of this development, surely Silly Bandz will create a 21+ edition to accommodate their new market—and we can’t wait to trade our rubber margarita for somebody’s rubber handcuffs.
