Doing One For the Team

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the closer we Americans get to the Election Day, the more we lose our sense of humor. Fortunately, we can count on people like comedian Sarah Silverman to help us out.

It seems that Vegas casino owner billionaire Sheldon Adelson has offered to donate $100 million to Romney’s presidential campaign. (Yes, you can get rich in Vegas – if you own the damn casino.)

Silverman, out of true selfless patriotism, is willing to do what she can to um, swing Adelson and his money over to the Democratic side.

Now there is a dedicated Democrat. Sniff. I’m so proud.

I found this article in the Huffington Post.

It seems there is this English mother (Chantal Marshall) who is rather disappointed in her youngest daughter. Why you ask? Did the girl get pregnant, hooked on drugs, expelled from school for cheating? Nooo. Mums is disappointed because Britney, age 14, isn’t interested in getting breast implants the size of watermelons like her mother and four older sisters did.

And Marshall really wishes she would, telling the Sun:

“At the moment she doesn’t really have what I would say are boobs — but I’d like her to follow in her sisters’ footsteps… I really love the fake look of my girls and I know Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older.”

Chantal and her four other daughters collectively own £50,000 worth of fake breasts, with sizes ranging from 32DD (21-year-old Ripley) to 34HH (27-year-old Terri). But Britney’s au naturel… for now. The “brainy” one of the family, Britney told the Sun, “Maybe I’ll decide to get them too and start saving in a few years. But for now I want to focus on my school work.”

Now there’s a mother to inspire you. She better start saving her money now, I see a lot therapy in ALL of her childrens’ future…

Someone In the Media Who Actually Get’s Women’s Sexuality

As I reboot my blog for the upteenth time…

Like most longtime romance readers I have snickered quite a bit over the mainstream media’s reaction to the best-selling success of “50 Shades of Grey”. Really people get a clue. Women have been reading sexy stories for YEARS. Even the BDSM elements are not new. Ever hear of Joey W. Hill? Or Emma Holly? Did any of these so called journalists do even the slightest bit of research?

But finally I stumbled on an article in Psychology Today. A refreshing bit of common sense.

The year 2012 may be remembered less for apocalyptic endings (we hope) than for the apparent explosion of women’s sexuality in pop media. “Magic Mike” is becoming the runaway hit movie of the summer, and the book Fifty Shades of Grey is shaping up to rival Harry Potter at the top of all-time best seller lists. Social critics proclaim their surprise at this burst of female libido into popular consciousness. Despite what you may be led to believe, though, the truth is that women and men just aren’t that different when it comes to basic sex drives.

Women are flocking to Magic Mike as do bachelorettes to a Chippendale party. However, this isn’t the first movie to appeal to women’s lustier tastes. Though the story line may be lighter than its 1997 predecessor, The Full Monty both movies share a fascination with the male body in motion. The Full Monty did exceptionally well in the box office itself, becoming the top grossing film in the UK until the release of Titanic later in the year. Novels with female protagonists demanding that their sexual needs be fulfilled are not new either. We only have to think back to 1928’s Lady Chatterly’s Lover, written by D.H. Lawrence (and banned in its entirety until 1960), to realize that female sexuality has been the driving force behind the success of plenty of literature, from the so-called “bodice rippers” to Erica Jong’s 1973 Fear of Flying, which introduced the unforgettable phrase “Zipless F—” into popular parlance.

I feel I should email this article to every one of the tv news organizations with a little note: “Grow up people! Women like to read about sex. Get over it.” But nah.
