THE SEX FILES: More Fun
1. While filming the video for her single “We Found Love,” mega-pop star Rihanna was told to cease and desist her sexy dancing and semi-strip tease (really just letting her flannel shirt drop to reveal a smaller brassier top) by a Mr. Alan Graham, the owner of the Bango field in Northern Ireland where Rihanna and crew had come and been allowed to film.
“I thought it was inappropriate. I requested they stop and they did.” Graham said, stating that when he said yes to the filming: “I didn’t know who was coming. If the name ‘Rihanna’ had been mentioned, well no disrespect but it wouldn’t have meant anything.”
Can it really be that some people do not know who Rihanna is? How uncivilized!
2. Right here at home it seems mommy-to-be Jessica Simpson tweeted a photo to her fans from one of our department store’s (Bergdorf Goodman) bathroom stalls. Jessica’s legs are clearly seen in the shot dangling quite well above the bathroom floor from what we have to assume is the top of the toilet bowl. The caption of the photo read: “Short Girl Problems.”
Does J.S. have a slightly skewed view of her importance in people’s lives, should she have taken a book with her to occupy her time or do her fans really want to see her on the toilet?
3. Finally someone is tackling the age-old quandary of what exactly ‘hooking-up’ means. Amanda Holman, a doctoral student at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, and Dr. Alan Sillars of the University of Montana, interviewed 274 college students at a large public university finding that though nearly all of the participating students were familiar with the phrase “hooking up,” there was no consensus about what the term actually means. 1/3 of the students said they weren’t even sure if hooking up involved sex at all!
If you don’t know what it is can you ever really be accused of doing it?
5. Porn star and weekend skydiving instructor Alex Torres (a.k.a Voodoo) decided to film himself and Skydive Taft receptionist Hope Howell doing it thousands of feet above ground. Filming the aerial daring-do in the very early morning, the couple figured no one would be disturbed and no public nudity complaints would come their way but the Taft Police and the FAA are investigating. While it is technically legal to have sex in a private plane, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said any activity that could distract the pilot while he’s flying could be a violation of federal regulations.
Supposedly Torres and Howell started on the plane and then continued once they jumped out in tandem into the air.
Torres is a trained professional though.
