Tatum O'Neal: "Britney Needs Rehab"


Actress Tatum O'Neal has urged Britney Spears to go back to rehab - or she'll never get her kids back. The Rescue Me star, 43, who like Spears shot to fame at a young age, relates to the troubled superstar's problems because she was deemed an "unfit mother" herself. And she urged the hitmaker, 25, - who has just lost custody of her two children Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, - to check back into rehab as soon as possible. She says, "I relate to her and feel really sad for her. I did everything that she doesn't want to do. I did the drug testing. It was very humbling but I wanted those kids back. Hopefully she will figure (it) out. But it's going to be hard and she will do it publicly and that sucks." O'Neal - who became the youngest person ever to win an Oscar for her role in 1973 film Paper Moon - lost a bitter custody battle over her three children to ex-husband John McEnroe, after their eight-year marriage ended in 1992. Since then she has undergone prolonged treatment for substance abuse.

And the winner is....Gay Bomb!


When you win an Ig Nobel prize, it's not a good thing.

"And one group of military scientists certainly took the statement to heart when they designed a "gay bomb" to make enemy soldiers irresistible to each other.
Researchers from the US Air Force submitted a three-page proposal to Pentagon chiefs to develop lust-creating chemical weapon, it was revealed yesterday.
And last night they were finally rewared with an Ig Nobel prize for peace, a spoof of the Nobel prizes, due to be announced next week."

How NOT to make your protein shakes taste like crap


Drinking a protein shake can be like downing a shot of vodka, rum, or gin on its own. Sure, you’re a real man if you can stomach it, but it would taste a hell of a lot better if you had something to mix it with. The same goes for certain protein shakes, which guys tend to choke down simply because they need the nutrients, all the while hating that artificial flavor. Fortunately, you can jazz up a bland shake with these simple add-ons—think of them as “mixers”—guaranteed to cut that chalky taste at no cost to your shake’s nutritional value.
INSTANT COFFEE Add one teaspoon of decaf to your vanilla shakes to create an iced-coffee flavor. Alternatively, add coffee to a chocolate shake for a mocha flavor. If you’re drinking a shake pre-workout, you can use caffeinated coffee to get a stimulant effect and help you zone in on your training.
PEPPERMINT EXTRACT Use it purely for flavor enhancement—it won’t affect the nutritional content of your shake. Add a few drops to a chocolate shake for a mouthwatering mint chocolate chip ice cream flavor.
ORGANIC PEANUT BUTTER It goes well with any flavor of shake. Just put one tablespoon in your shake to transform it into a dessert-like snack. Each tablespoon contains about 95 calories, eight grams of
healthy fats, three grams of protein, and a shot of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
FROZEN BERRIES Try adding one cup to your vanilla shake to transform it into a fruit smoothie. You can and should use all kinds of berries to maximize antioxidants and fiber. One cup of berries has about 50 calories and 11 grams of carbs.

The 6 Secrets of Great Gay Anal Sex

From About.com

Anal sex can be a pleasurable experience for gay men, but there are a few things you should know before having anal sex and a few tips to help ease the pain.
  1. Know how the anus works.
    Before having anal sex, let's talk about how the anus works. The anus is the opening at the end of the colon which controls the passage of waste. Waste passes through the small intestines to your colon, then your rectum and finally out the anus. The opening and closing of the anus is controlled by the internal and external sphincter muscles (the most important muscles when engaging in anal sex). The sphincter muscle is a sensitive membrane with many nerve endings and thus the source of pleasure or pain.
  2. Reduce the pain.
    Any pain associated with anal sex is due to pressure or friction against the sphincter muscles.
    The best ways to reduce pain during anal sex is to get to know how your sphincter (and body) works and to properly lubricate.
  3. Get to know your body.
    The more familiar you are with your body, the more enjoyable anal sex can be. Each person's sphincter muscles react to penetration differently. Since the muscles control the opening and closing of the anus, you need to learn how yours works. Spend time safely exploring the sensitivity of your sphincter and how it reacts when you are relaxed or tense. Practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing. Use a small sex toy, then gradually increase the size. Exploring the sensitivity of your sphincter is an exercise both you and your partner can enjoy prior to penetration. Openly communicate how you feel in certain situations: What makes you tense? What are your limits? Stop if you feel uncomfortable, experience pain or bleeding. The more you both know about your bodies, the better your anal sex experience.
  4. Practice good hygiene.
    Many gay men shy away from anal sex because of the possible hygiene problems. Maintaining proper hygiene is not only important for an enjoyable anal sex experience, but your health as well. Cleaning can be overdone, however. Be careful with over the counter internal cleansing products. They contain harsh ingredients not formulated for the anus. Also, avoid over wiping as this can cause irritation and bleeding. Baby wipes also contain perfumes that can irritate the skin. To properly clean, use premoistened adult wipes, like Charmin Fresh Mates or Kleenex Cottonelle Flushable Wipes.
  5. Beware of the dangers of STD's.
    The anus is a thin membrane and therefore a hot bed for sexually transmitted diseases. HIV and other STD's can easily enter the bloodstream, especially when there are abrasions or tears in the anus. Having a thin membrane between your bloodstream and your partner's bodily fluids is what makes bareback sex so dangerous. Always use a condom and practice safer sex.
  6. Dispel anal sex myths.
    Many gay men avoid seeking medical attention because they feel if they've had anal sex the doctor can immediately tell. Yes, the anus is stretched after anal sex, but it returns to normal soon after. If you think something may be wrong with your anus, see a gay-affirmative doctor.

Fellow Republicans not happy with Larry Craig's latest decision

Seems like fellow Republicans are not too happy about Larry Craig's recent announcement about staying in the Senate:

"Republicans indicated Thursday that they plan to make life in the Senate uncomfortable for Larry E. Craig. Republican Senate leaders plan to confer during the chamber’s Columbus Day recess about how to cope with Craig’s decision. The consultations could result in his ejection from all of his committee assignments. Craig had already relinquished his status as ranking Republican on one committee and two subcommittees.
GOP leaders had requested an Ethics Committee investigation in August, shortly after learning that Craig had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct after an undercover police officer interpreted some of Craig’s actions in a restroom as a solicitation for sex. The most extreme option available to that committee is recommending expulsion — something that hasn’t happened in the Senate since the Civil War."
