This is my new favourite blog. This writer slays me, just absolutely makes me dissolve into a puddle of shaking quaking giggles. "Ladies and gentleman, meet Philipe, the number one reason people scatter at social gatherings." That's gold Jerry! Almost as good as his next nugget: "What's the difference between Keynesianism and Friedman's model of economics? The difference is you're never getting a blowjob." Hahahahahahhha. My new favourite blog: www.whywomenhatemen.blogspot.com. For the record, I don't hate men. Well, not ALL of them. :)
We received an email from our friend Latoya at Racialicious about the Japanese porn company Natural High's new Naked Continent series (NSFW) that left us speechless. Not because they've somehow managed to come up with new sex acts or something, but because the series is billed as "Charity Porn" (NSFW) — and not because the performers have sex with men that have resorted to Real Dolls.
No, the Natural High performers have sex with impoverished local Africans on film. The director gave about $11,000 to a Kenyan charity, distributed some corn and free T-shirts to the locals in the area and then — reportedly — gathered up a few local men to have sex on tape with their performers in scenes that totally don't rely on stereotypes at all, as you can see. For every DVD they sell, the company plans to give another $10 to the same charity. This is, even in Kenya, not a lot of money, especially given that it's distributed to a charity that likely has some overhead.
Lisa at Sociological images writes:
First, the news story doesn’t discuss payment. I assume the men are paid. This raises serious questions. How much choice can these individuals really exercise if, in fact, they are as impoverished as the producer claims? This reminds me of those campaigns to sterilize women on welfare or drug-using women by offering them a sum of money and paying for their operation. Is this consent or coercion?
Actually, the original news story doesn't at all mention payment for the male performers, but makes quite a big deal about the $11,000 given to the charity from the get-go and the residuals they will received, which makes me think that they weren't paid. I mean, even the drunk young women in Joe Francis's videos have to sign consent forms and get a T-shirt or hat as "payment," but I'm guessing the men that participated in this did not — if one even believes that they were local men in the first place. If we don't like it when American pornographers exploit women in foreign countries , it's not going to make us feel any better when they're doing it to men of equally limited means.
The other question that occurs to me reading this is there's no indication what the female performers were expecting to encounter, or what rights they had to decline during this shoot. Given what one expects would be a significant language barrier between the performers, the distance from home for the women and lack of protection reportedly utilized by the performers, I would even be concerned for the women involved in the shoot if they decided they were no longer willing to participate — especially since the anonymous author at Sankaku Complex refers to them (NSFW) as "amateur Japanese [Adult Video] performers."
This is not even to get into the politics of interracial porn, or the stereotype — here and in Japan — of sexually voracious black men, or the vague overtones of colonialism and condescension, or the stereotypes of Africa on display in this (and the other) DVD cases. First and foremost, this is a clear case where consent is fuzzy, at best, and exploitation is most certainly at work. Racism and stereotypes seem like the least of the problems when you're talking about the intersection of coercion, poverty and the potential for disease by a variety of ill-informed and unpaid amateur performers exploited by those who ought to know better.

Anyone else find this HIGHLY disturbing? WTF?
What are you trying to do? Kill me with the cuteness? That is one badass pit.
I got Saturday night fever, man.
So sad. And bizarre!
On Monday, a woman in Brazil died on the way to a cemetery when a traffic accident caused her husband's coffin to fly at her neck.
According to a new report, the woman, 67-year old Marciana Silva Barcelos, was in the front passenger seat of the hearse carrying her husband's coffin.
She died instantly.
Marciana's 76-year-old husband, Josi, died Sunday of a heart attack while dancing at a party.
Looks like Josi didn't want to leave this world alone!
Hopefully, Josi and Marciana are dancing together on a big, fluffy cloud up in the heavens.
Crazy stuff!!! (Perezhilton.com)
Midway through her pregnancy, Lopez had just finished her concert tour with husband Marc Anthony last fall when she told him he needed him to take the reins, she tells Elle magazine in its October issue cover story. "I said, 'I did the superwoman thing, I finished the tour – now I need you to take care of me,'" said Lopez, 39.
"'I love doing things for you; if I'm not cooking, then I'm picking out a shirt. But this is the first time in my life where I'm just going to be a little bit selfish,'" she told Anthony, who turns 40 on Sept. 16. "'I don’t know if I'm going to have kids again, so I want it to be a beautiful experience. I don't want to have any drama. I want to just be smiling every day.'"
The actress, who is currently training for her first triathalon, says she and her husband of four years didn't worry when she didn't get pregnant right away. "We knew nothing was wrong with either one of us – I had been checked, and he had kids already," she told Elle. "I knew [that] something’s not ready here, in my head or in my life, and when it is, I know it’s going to happen.”
As for the moment she realized she was pregnant, she reveals, "I was sitting down doing hair and makeup and I felt a flutter. The weirdest little ... flourish. My makeup artist said 'What’s the matter?' I didn’t say anything, but in my head, I was like, I have life inside me!”
Two weeks before giving birth, Lopez commissioned a special gift for her husband – a book of photos of herself. Says Lopez: "I was like, 'How am I going to rock this moment of my life? ... I felt very womanly. Marc was in a dream. He loved it."

Oh Jello, we all know this is not the first time you've been selfish. I very much dislike this fur wearing waste of food.
Hollywood must be scrambling to buy the rights to the Joyce McKinney story: it features insanity, obsession, religion, a Penthouse pinup turned female rapist, courtroom drama, and a cloned vicious pit bull. Jeremy Olshan of the NY Post dished up all the lurid details that other news outlets neglected.
As you may recall, a woman named Bernann McKinney recently made the news because she cloned her pit bull in Korea for $50,000, and the result was five puppies. Someone recognized her photograph and ID'd her as Joyce McKinney, a sex crazed pinup girl who was on the lam for 30 years after she kidnapped a Mormon missionary. Joyce, a former Miss Wyoming, was a Utah student in the 70's when she became obsessed with Kirk Anderson, a fellow student and missionary. They had a brief romance but she was too possessive, and he moved to England to escape her.
She tracked him down, and with chloroform and a fake gun, kidnapped him and manacled him with fur lined handcuffs to a bed at a remote cottage. After days of reading the scriptures and begging him to marry her, she forced him to have sex with her. Later in court he said " I couldn't move" and she testified "Kirk had to be tied up to have an orgasm."
The UK tabloids went wild with the story, dubbing her the "Shackle Queen." Somehow McKinney jumped bail and hid in Atlanta posing as a nun. When it became clear that British authorities didn't intend to extradite her, she posed nude in a series of magazines. In 1984 she was caught skulking around Kirk's home and was arrested again. In 1999 she was interviewed living in isolation in a shack in Tennessee with her beloved pit bull, who pulled her wheelchair.
Now it turns out her beloved pit bull viciously attacked two joggers and was condemned to be euthanized, but Joyce kidnapped HIM from the pound before he could be put to death. So these adorable puppies have THAT DNA. The Koreans who cloned her dog might be sorry they gave her a $50,000 discount for being "so nice." Who would YOU cast in the role of Joyce? I'm thinking Melanie Griffith and her big lips. Who's another crazy blonde?
