Polish Party Posts Nude Posters For Upcoming Election

2007, Oct 4th

Poland Political PartyWarsaw – A new Polish women’s political party risks shocking the majority Catholic country by plastering nude posters of their female candidates for the upcoming October 21 parliamentary election.

Seven women, including Women’s Party (Partia Kobiet, PK) founder and president, writer Manuela Gretkowska, have launched their campaign with nude posters of themselves with the logo “The Party of Women. Poland is a Woman” masking their private parts.

The poster also incorporates their electoral slogan: “Everything for the future… and nothing to hide.”

“This poster is intended to shatter stereotypes in the anachronistic world of politics, which is more often dominated by uncommunicative men with their black tie outfits,” Gretkowska told AFP.

“We are beautiful, nude, proud. We are true and sincere, body and soul. This is not pornography, there is nothing to see in terms of sex, our faces are intelligent, concerned, proud. We do not have our mouths open nor our eyes closed,” she said.

Sixty Pint Beer Binge Leads To Four-Week Hangover

2007, Oct 4th

Beer MugsParis – It may be the longest hangover in the history of binge beer drinking. When a 37-year old man walked into a hospital emergency room in Glasgow, Scotland last October complaining of “wavy” vision and a non-stop headache that had lasted four weeks, doctors were at first stumped, the British journal The Lancet reported Friday.The unnamed patient “had no history of head injury or loss of consciousness; his past medical record was unremarkable, and he was taking no medications,” Zia Carrim and two other physicians from Southern General Hospital said in a case report.

Body temperature and blood pressure were both normal, and a neurological exam scanned negative. But when an eye specialist was called in, the fog began to clear, at least for the doctors.

The patient, said the ophthalmologist, had swollen optical discs, greatly enlarged blind spots and what eye doctors call “flame haemorrhages,” or bleeding nerve fibres.

“We sought a more detailed history” from the patient, noted Zia drly.

That is when the man revealed he had consumed some 60 pints — roughly 35 litres — of beer over a four day period, following a domestic crisis.

Severe dehydration caused the alcohol, the doctors guessed, had led to a rare condition called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). A scan of the brain’s blood vessels confirmed the diagnosis.

CVST — which can cause seizures, impaired consciousness, loss of vision and neurological damage — strikes three or four people per million, mainly children, every year in Britain. The cause is generally unknown.

It took more than six months of long-term blood-thinning treatment to restore the man’s normal vision — and to get rid of the headache, the doctors reported.

He Used WHAT?

2007, Oct 4th

Sydney – It was a stick up of a different kind for one Australian burglar, who broke into a neighbor’s house and played sex games in the bathroom with a bottle of toilet detergent and a vacuum cleaner.

A court in the northern city of Brisbane heard how 27 year old Jamie Lacey, high on drugs, broke into the house in September 2004, scattering pornographic magazines around the bathroom and making a sex toy from a bottle of detergent, a piece of wood and a rubber glove, the Brisbane Times reported.

Lacey was arrested in December 2006 after police matched DNA his DNA to that on the rubber glove, according to the Australian Associated Press.

A vacuum cleaner was also found in the bathroom, but the judge dismissed a defense submission that there was no proof the vacuum has been used for sexual purposes.

“I’m sure that your client didn’t hoover the carpets,” the newspaper and AAP quoted judge Tony Rafter as saying.

Lacey was sentenced to 12 months community service, with judge declining to send him to jail since he had held a steady job for two years and was now a father.

“Mr. Skin” Cashes In On Obsession With Naked Women

2007, Oct 4th

Mr Skin New York – Jim McBride has made it his life’s work to know how much naked female flesh appears in movies — an obsession apparently shared by millions of people.

So far McBride, a.k.a. Mr. Skin, and a staff that includes his mother, who works as a “skintern,” have chronicled nude women in more than 25,000 movies and television shows.

It is all recorded on his Web site, http://www.mrskin.com, which has been running for eight years, and on Saturday McBride launched into print, publishing “Mr. Skin’s Skintastic Video Guide” to “the 501 greatest movies for sex and nudity on DVD.”

“It’s the greatest job in the world,” said McBride. “As a kid I used to tape as many movies as I could with nudity and then I’d save the nude scenes on separate tapes. I really amazed my friends with my nudity knowledge growing up.”

Once-Puritan South Africa Holds Its First Sex Fair

2007, Oct 4th

Johannesburg – South Africans queued to learn about sex toys and pole-dancing this weekend, at the first sex fair ever held in a country founded by conservative Christians and still home to many sexual taboos.

The exhibition, modeled on a show running in Australia since 1996, would have been unthinkable 15 years ago when South Africa was still ruled by Afrikaners, the white descendants of the original, largely Puritan Dutch and French settlers.

During the apartheid era, customs officials not only confiscated pornography brought from abroad by travelers, but sometimes detained those trying to import it. Strip clubs did not exist and handcuffs, though abundant, were not fur-lined.

The end of white minority rule in 1994 and the establishment of a new constitution — generally considered one of the most liberal in the world — unleashed a torrent of hard-core porn. Sex shops and strip clubs blossomed.

Although authorities tolerate the lifestyle, it remains one that few South Africans openly discuss or admit to supporting.

Gorgeous Hayden Panettiere Wallpaper

2007, Oct 4th

Hayden Panettiere WallpaperLets kick things off again with an awesome desktop wallpaper I found over at one of my favorite wallpapers sites, Skins.be. It is of the ever growing (in popularity, age, and beauty) Hayden Panettiere from Heroes. She is certainly growing up fast, and maybe the Hollywood life is corrupting her, hopefully not for the worse. This seems to be a trend for most young women these days though. In any case, she will certainly be a big star if she sticks with Heroes for a while longer and seduces more legions of fans. Enjoy this beauty. :)

Check out more beautiful wallpapers of Hayden over at both Skins.be and SexyDesktop.
