Sexy vs Snuggly for Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching, meaning the frenzied search for the perfectly costume is officially in full effect. As a girl in Oregon, this often means deciding between how comfortable you want to be versus how sexy you want to appear. It is no secret that a young woman’s Halloween is often nothing more than an excuse to wear 2 square inches of fabric as a costume, praying you stay warm while you simultaneously pretend to put out flames as a sexy fire firefighter. To quote Mean Girls, “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and do other girls can say anything about it.”

This year, I plan to take a different approach. Perusing Halloween costume patters the other day, I came across the most amazing, ridiculous looking outfits for adults. Maybe it was the corny posing of the models, or perhaps my boyfriend’s shared exuberance to make fools of ourselves. It might even be the fact that I essentially get to wear pajamas to a party while everyone else is sporting the cheap, flimsy fabric you find in most costumes. Regardless, I am embarking on a sewing mission this afternoon to make these stupendous costumes a reality. Wish me luck!



World’s Youngest Sex-Change

More power to her! I love the fact that this girl knew exactly what she wanted and went for it, regardless of societal norms. I hope she has a wonderful and happy life as a girl.

In addition, reading this article, and hearing of other stories about transgenders, makes me feel so fortunate to have been born in the body I am in. Sure I could complain about little things here or there (small boobs ring a bell?) but when it really comes down to it, I do not feel trapped or like I was born with the wrong physical form in general.

The procedure – carried out in secret and paid for by the German health service – was authorised after psychologists confirmed that she was “without doubt a girl in a boy’s body”.

It is the world’s youngest ever full sex change operation and Kim – born Tim -had been undergoing hormone therapy since the age of 12.

Dr Bernd Meyenburg who heads the Psychiatric Special Outpatient Clinic for Children and Adolescents with Identity Disorders at the University of Frankfurt Hospital said: “Very few youth psychiatrists have any experience with transsexual developments. The families wander from one psychiatrist to the next.

“I was always against such operations on children so young but after seeing how happy one of my patients was and how well adjusted after returning from having the operation abroad while still a teenager – I realised that in some cases it is the right decision.

“Kim is such a case – she always knew what she wanted.”

Kim overcame years of taunts and bullying to achieve her dream of becoming a girl and has begun a modelling career and launched a CD.

Now aged 16, she said: “I was asked if I feel like a woman now – but the truth is I have always felt like a woman – I just ended up in the wrong body.”

And she can’t wait for the summer so she can try out a whole new wardrobe of tight fitting clothes.

She said: “I had a problem because I couldn’t wear skinny stuff, but now I can wear whatever I want to. I really am looking forward to going swimming like everyone else and to wearing tight jeans that show off my figure. They are so tight, I always felt quite uncomfortable in them until now.

“Now I can go as tight as I want to. I used to wear mini skirts too, but yes, now even the tight ones can be part of my wardrobe.

“I can enjoy swimming, and bikinis, go in the changing rooms without a problem, everything has changed because of this operation. I just can’t wait to put on my favourite bathing suit and go swimming like I’ve never done before.”

“I had to wait until my 16th birthday but once that was past I was able legally to have the operation. I know that because of my past people will always bring up the subject, I can’t get away from it. But I hope that one day I might be better known for something else like my music.”

Kim, who is now studying fashion design, began calling herself a girl when she was just two years old.

Her dad Lutz said: “I suppose it took me longer than my wife to accept it, but Kim is a very persuasive girl, she knows what she wants and how to get it. I am very proud of what she has achieved, how she has managed to get there and how she sticks to her dreams no matter how hard and painful they are to follow.”

Last year Kim became a model for a nationwide German hair salon chain.

Director Giuseppe Pino Galanti said: “Kim fits perfectly with the image we want to portray. She is very pretty, and has a lot of style and personality, both of which are equally important. Our stylists produce work that is sassy, trendy and unique, just like Kim.”

V-card Auction. Going once, going twice, SOLD!

So I am sure many of you have seen this now, but it still baffles me that someone would do this. Okay, in a world maxed out with internet porn, celebrity sex tapes, and an endless supply of innuendo it definitely isn’t unbelievable, but still, I would like to talk with someone like this and understand the thought process behind using their body in such a way to make money. To each their own, I suppose. It just is something I would never do.

Online Virginity Auction Sparks Debate



By Natalie Dylan, amNewYork, New York

Jan. 15–Is it a hoax? A publicity stunt? Or just what it looks like: A 22-year-old woman auctioning off her virginity on the Internet.

In any case, the California woman — who goes by the pseudonym Natalie Dylan — has created an online sensation. She is the latest in a line of shocking online hawkers who are selling everything from organs to human eggs.

“It’s going too far, and it’ll go beyond that,” said Katherine Ramos, 35, of Harlem. “It all has to do with morality.”

Whether it’s the kidney or baby that went up for sale on eBay or the man who sold everything he owns for nearly $400,000, the online auction craze has produced some startling offers and responses. Dylan is not even the first woman to sell her virginity online.

Jeremy Saland, a Manhattan criminal defense attorney, said he has seen the Web used for a variety of dubious transactions.

“I have witnessed people selling things ranging from counterfeit money, fake passports and fraudulent diplomas to drugs, stolen electronics and even a tortoise that was an endangered species,” he said.

Though there is nothing novel about selling sex, Dylan’s brazen offer seems emblematic of an age in which virtually anything can be sold and buyers easily found.

“In the world of cyberspace, it’s very disembodied,” said David Salvage, a Manhattan psychologist. “This woman would not do this in her local community center.”

While the ethics of selling things like organs online can be debated, legally, there are clear rules: If a person sells or buys something on the Internet that is illegal in the jurisdiction they’re doing it from, they can be charged, Saland explained.

Dylan may have entered a legal gray area. She lives in San Diego, but says she will seal the deal at the Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel in Nevada.

“Assuming this woman is violating the laws of her jurisdiction and a man soliciting her is violating a law in his home state, they are both looking for trouble,” Saland said.

Dylan says she has received more than 10,000 responses to her offer since September, when the auction began, the highest coming in at $3.7 million.

Francisco Gonzalez, 26, of Queens, said he has no problem with what Dylan is doing. In fact, he called her a “good businesswoman.”

“She’s just being smart,” Gonzalez said. “Nowadays, kids are giving it up for nothing.”

Giving it up for NOTHING?! How about LOVE???

more differences between boys and girls

12. Apparently it is possible for boys to get cancer from masturbating/having sex in excess when younger. Sorry guys!

13. Girls: I will be ready in 5 minutes=I will be ready in 30 minutes. Boys: I will be ready in 5 minutes=I will be ready in 5 minutes.

14. Girls have a higher tolerance when it comes to hot temperatures.

15. Girls are emotionally driven, boys are visually driven.

16. Free/reduced drinks and no cover at bars for ladies. Yes!

Sexy Veggies

Here is one ad you apparently will not see air during the Super Bowl this sunday. It focuses on PETA’s message that vegetarians have better sex with various intimate moments between women and their beloved vegetables.


On another note, where do people come up with this stuff? Should I really be secretly turned on by broccoli?

No pancakes for me, I’ll just have sex

So the two conversation I have ever heard about breakfast seem to involve which is the best place to go (because you cannot beat a great breakfast joint) and how eating a healthy breakfast will help you lose weight (cause you won’t eat as much during the rest of the day, blah, blah, blah…) But whoever thought the simple act of eating or not eating breakfast could contribute to what age you lose your virginity? Hmmm. Pancakes or penis? Which shall I choose today?
