Perez Hilton has a statement from Danny Pintauro for everyone, myself included, that doubted him saying he caught HIV from oral sex. “I was so upset when I figured out that it was through oral. I had been SO good! I know the exact person and occasion and on that day he wore a condom but ‘finished’ in my mouth. So I’ve put two and two together and decided it was the oral. Could I be wrong? Of course – it could potentially be a tear in the condom I didn’t see (though even then he would have had to release bodily fluids into the condom for that to then leak through the tear, which he didn’t). Without going into great detail I am confident that the back of my throat was compromised and when his bodily fluid came in contact with my mouth…all hell broke loose. I mean, I’ve been so honest up to this point why would I start lying now? If anything, saying it was oral is counterproductive to the message I’m trying to get across about people on meth losing their inhibitions and going condom-less. But it also ADDS to the argument I’m making that combining meth with sex in any way, shape, or form changes the odds of contracting HIV. For multiple reasons: 1) meth causes mucosal dryness which increases risk of tissue tear… aka the tissue in my mouth was suffering from dry mouth… but this includes the other end as well, the tissue down there is more likely to tear so bare backing is more likely to put you at risk. 2) There are several studies that show meth increases the rate of HIV replication in the body so the person I was with (who was not on ART) likely had a high viral load compounded by the fact that he frequently did meth. So am I saying that someone engaging in normal/drug free oral sex is at a significant risk of getting HIV? No! Those odds are extremely low, almost non-existent. Am I saying that if you combine HIV and Meth those odds increase? Yes, and there’s research to show this is quite likely. So I put two and two together.”
Look, I’m not going to argue with someone about an event I wasn’t present for (although we caught it around the same time, and I don’t remember everyone I slept with), but the statistics are against what he’s saying, but what he’s saying makes a delightful narrative from his point of view, and might make the story more palatable to straight audiences, so I’m just going to back away.
In her new memoir, I’ll Never Write My Memoirs, Grace Jones was not fond of Lady Gaga. After the first meeting, she said “Gaga came to me, and I just could not find a soul. I come from Church — maybe that has something to do with it. I like to get to the soul of a person. I just didn’t feel a soul.”
Basically, it appears that the entire Alabama Supreme Court is made up of justices that don’t understand 8th grade civics, much less constitutional law, so perhaps the state should think a bit about who they elect next time.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the the White House is still reviewing the Equality Act, and isn’t prepared to endorse it at this time. It’s strange, because it’s really a simple law, unlike ENDA, it adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the Civil Rights Act. How complicated could a decision be, especially considering that it has no chance of coming up for a vote before 2021 in any case?
Kanye West thinks that he’s been discriminated against in the fashion world because he’s not gay. “I feel like I got discriminated in fashion for not being gay. In music, you definitely get discriminated in music if you are gay. It takes amazing talents to break down barriers. Everyone thought that when Frank Ocean dropped that it was going to be bad for his career. I feel like it’s so cliché to speak about him as it relates to this subject, but there are people who broke the ground and he broke the ground. The people that break the stereotypes make history.” I mean, he has a point, his clothes are just as ridiculous and ugly as what I see on most runways.
In case the Autoblow sex toy wasn’t enough variety for your dick, Brian Sloan is back with 3Fap, a sex toy with three different openings, one that feels like a mouth, another a vagina, and a third as a butt. The insides are modeled on 3D scans of winners of a Vaginal Beauty Contest, and you can control the suction by turning a knob on each tube.
ABC Family is changing it’s name at the first of the year to Freeform. They’ve basically said that they need to keep their young audience, and “Family” made them seem too wholesome for a network built on Pretty Little Liars. What’s interesting about this to me is that part of the contract when Pat Robertson sold off the channel was that they had to air his 700 Club, and that “Family” had to stay in the name of the station, hence Fox Family, then ABC Family. That they can change to Freeform seems to indicate that the lawyers have found a way around that clause, so here’s hoping they found a way around airing the 700 Club.
According to a new survey, Denver is the most sexually active city in the nation, followed by Portland. Those of you living in Jacksonville Florida, or Greenville, North Carolina, I’m so sorry about your blue balls.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence is said to be considering an LGBT rights bill that would protect in employment and housing, but not in public accommodations, much like Utah did. While Utah got a lot of praise, because well, it’s Utah, for that bill, most of Indiana’s politicians and business community say that in the wake of this spring’s RFRA disaster, it’s just not enough. Former Angie’s List CEO Bill Oesterle, who quit his post to work in politics and is seen as a challenger to Pence, says “that’s a horrible half-solution.” He’s joined in his criticism by the NCAA and Eli Lilly.
I don’t really know how to describe this mashup of Star Wars and Disney beyond to say that it’s incredibly awesome, and if you happen to be a fan of both, you may have a spontaneous orgasm watching it.
If the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs missed, it’s likely humans wouldn’t be the dominant species on earth, and The Good Dinosaur makes that abundantly clear by treating its lone human as basically a dog. I’d had trouble getting excited about this Pixar film, but then they slapped me with all the emotions in this latest trailer, and I’m hooked, and I’m prepared to ugly sob again in the theater.
There’s a really fine line with celebrities opening up about their fabulous lifestyles and making it aspirational, or just making it bragging. This ad for the Emirates 380 service with Jennifer Aniston tries to have it both ways, by showing how ridiculously pampered they are, and attempting to mock it while still celebrating a plane that is nicer than my house. It basically fails by trying to walk the line, and needlessly spends a lot of the goodwill Aniston carries with her.
