Transgender Contestant on America's Next Top Model

My hat is off to Ms. Tyra Banks. She has no problem pushing the boundaries and actively creates a dialogue about sexuality and taboos. You so know that Oprah wouldn't open her show to a pro-sex, pro-transgender story line. I heart Tyra!

One of the 14 girls who will compete on the new season of America's Next Top Model – which returns to The CW on September 3 – is transgender.

"My cards were dealt differently," Isis, a 22-year-old former receptionist, tells Us Weekly exclusively in its new issue, on newsstands now.

Hailing from Prince George's County, Maryland, Isis identifies herself as "a woman born physically male."

Loving the Olympic Bodies

I don't remember ever really getting into the Olympics coverage before but this year I can't keep my eyes off my flat screen. I even tried hitting to see if they posted any video of the men's synchronized diving because it was so amazing and I wanted you all to see it too.

Most swimmers/divers have a kind of loose physique with limited muscle definition but not the Russian and German divers. OMG! At first, I couldn't decide who was hotter then I caught a glimpse of one diver in the german duo.

You can't see it in this pic but he has this beautiful tattoo on his shoulder and the most amazing ass. Look at those abs! It's so refreshing to see real athletes with chiseled bodies. You just don't get enough of that on the city streets.

Amanda Peet Suffered with Postpartum Depression

Amanda Peet is a wonderful mom to daughter, Frances Penn, 17-months old, but she is only human and suffered from Postpartum Depression (found to be more common than previously thought). In an interview with Gotham magazine Amanda stated that she was hit with “fairly serious postpartum depression” right after her daughter was born.

“And now I want to be honest about it because I think there’s still so much shame when you have mixed feelings about being a mom instead of feeling this sort of ‘bliss.’ I think a lot of people still really struggle with that, but it’s hard to find other people who are willing to talk about it….”

Tyra Channels Michelle Obama for Harper's Bazaar

God, they make an amazing Presidential couple! I really like Michelle Obama. She's strong, successful, sophisticated and you just know that they have amazing sex.

Yes, I did it. I've sexualized the Obamas. I don't think we've ever had a better looking, suaver couple headed for the White House. Sorry but Jackie O wasn't attractive. And that breathy thing she did so so ridiculous. I remember watching that television piece she did about redecorating the Lincoln bedroom and I wanted to barf. Who talks like that? At least Marilyn was authentic.

Nigerian Man Advises Against 86 Wives

It sounds like a joke, "so this Nigerian man has 86 wives..." but it is reality for 86 women and 170 children. There are a couple of things that stick out in his interview with the BBC:

He is a healer and that's what makes him so attractive to women. They find him. Note: women in Nigeria trade bling for magical powers.

He told the BBC, "A man with 10 wives would collapse and die, but my own power is given by Allah. That is why I have been able to control 86 of them."

One of his wives was quoted as saying, "When you marry a man with 86 wives you know he knows how to look after them"

No one knows how he financially supports any of his wives. He doesn't have a job and neither do his wives. They say he sends his 170 children out begging for change.

They think he's the next Muhammed. Note: does he really have the time to be a prophet?

I guess they banned this commercial because of the nipple.

Christian Bale Eyes Batman Sex Scenes

Ok so I'll admit that I went to see The Dark Knight. They should have wrapped up the movie when they caught the Joker for the first time. It was all kind of redundant.

Anyway, I would love to see some dark sex in these movies. Even Christian Bale has been quoted as saying:

“I do think there is room for an 18-rated ‘Batman’. It’s a little bit tricky to broach the sex aspect of the story when you want kids to come see it as well. I mean, I think it would be very interesting to do a 12 version and an 18 version - two different cuts.”

And I had to google "batman" to see if it was one word of two.

Daniel Craig to Play Bisexual Roman King

God, I love British men and now one of my favorites (my man loves him too because he was James Bond) is taking on the role of bisexual ruler Hadrian in his upcoming flick Memoirs Of Hadrian. The Hollywood hottie will be seen playing the art loving roman ruler, who ruled from 117 to 138 AD and is famous for building the wall dividing Scotland from the Great Britain.

Craig will also be seen portraying the rulers affair with a teenage Greek boy Antinuos after, which his wife refuses to bear him any children.

I can't wait to see Daniel Craig kissing etc a young greek boy....enough fantasy images for a years worth of masturbating, don't you think? I'm watching Craig right now in Casino Royale.

Last Night's Workshop at Kiki De Montparnasse

Last night Eric Amaranth, Betty's protege, did his first sex workshop at Kiki De Montparnasse's Soho store. The night was fabulous. First, we walked through the store because it's so stimulating. In fact, I've modeled my bedroom after Kiki (subtle deep colors - purple and gray - with erotic photography on the walls, sumptuous velvet curtains for the dressing rooms, and sculpted works of art that double as sex toys. I loved it.

Now, if you go into the store and make a sharp right there's a staircase leading up to a private second floor - that's where we had our workshop. Imagine a room in a deep aubergine with large photos of cherry blossoms on the walls, a skylight above, and a long table at the end of the room with a large, black candelabra with black tapered candles in the middle with artistically mastered sex toys lying on gray velvet pillows to either side with a circle of chairs and lounging furniture in front of the table for guests.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl is My Fav New Show

Secret Diary of a Call Girl is my new favorite show. It's so much better than Sex in the City. I was a huge fan of the blog this show is based on which was brilliant so I was a bit hesitant to watch the show (because I thought Showtime would screw it all up but they simply licensed the shows from the UK).

It's a glimpse into real sex from the perspective of an independent, level-headed, feminist sex worker Belle, our heroine. It's not romanticized at all. And I can tell you that in one half hour you get more sex information than any book or sex ed class I ever took. Seriously!

Last weeks sex tip: never touch a client and yourself with the same hand. How easy is that to avoid any nasties? Always play with yourself with your right hand and your partner with your left. Safe Play!

I just had to put up a pic of Dave Navarro. He's so hot and so femme with the make-up. You know that I have his porn directorial debut Broken sitting in my dvd player at all times....anyway:

Superdrug is launching Taxi Man the first high street male cosmetics range. Yesterday, the company's director of trading Jeff Wemyss insisted that its cosmetics - branded Taxi Man - are not just for transvestites. He said: "These days you can be macho and wear make-up. If you look at people like Russell Brand and Robbie Williams, they both wear make-up and they are both very red-blooded men.

'Men are more obsessed with their appearance than ever before. There is no longer any pain in being seen to be vain.'

UK report: Use steamy TV scenes to talk to your kids about sex

Well at least they're advising them to talk to their kids about sex....we just ignore it. The study found that the breakdown in a conversation at home about sex lead to greater teen pregnancy. Hello! Betty and I have to get on our vod erotic sex education series.

Parents are being advised to watch steamy TV dramas and read teenagers' magazines to help them start conversations with their children about sex. A Government report yesterday said parents share the blame for soaring teenage pregnancy rates because so few talk to their children about the facts of life.

It said parents feel happier talking about the threat of drugs and gang culture than instigating discussions about contraception and sexually-transmitted diseases. The report, commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, urged parents to make sex and relationships part of everyday conversation.

Keira Knightley Refuses Breast Enhancement

Why does the world hate the A Cup? God, I love a petite woman with small breasts and perky nipples. It's so attractive. Some of us don't prefer big, siliconed-out breasts. And I know I'm not alone!

Keira Knightley has refused to allow any enhancement of her cleavage on publicity photos for her upcoming movie, "The Duchess," Britain's Daily Mail reports.

Studio heads reportedly want to enlarge Knightley's bosom in the photos, but the actress, 23, put her foot down.

"She has insisted that her figure stay in its natural state," an insider said. "She is proud of her body and doesn't want it altered."

Dana Scully: The First True Female Character

Even pregnant Gillian Anderson is amazing! I caught X Files last weekend (my man made we wait to post about it so I wouldn't ruin it for everyone else) and I finally got it...why I loved X Files:

It was the first accurate portrayal of a female heroine. Mulder was ruled by his emotions; Scully was ruled by her reason. She was cool, calm, and collected and always saved Mulder's ass (she does again in the film). God, I love Chris Carter.

And the best part (besides Mulder and Scully lying in bed talking about their son, William, who died....I know!) is that half way through the movie my man looks over at me and whispers in my ear, "I had such a huge crush on Scully".

I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have a man who prizes wit and resolve.
