A teen drama without any thin actresses...
For the past few weeks I’ve been constantly passing this ad (left) for the new ABC Family series Huge.

Either way, it effectively sparked my ... Read More

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:

The Artificial Virginity Hymen Kit has been causing a legit uproar in Egypt. What's in the phony purity pack? Why, a diaphragm that trickles a blood-like liquid, of course! And it's all in an effort to trick new hubbies into thinking their brides are carrying a V-card.
The kit is seen as a tool of empowerment to some, but Egyptian conservatives believe it promotes promiscuity and ultimately threatens Islam. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood ... Read More

Do people really still think like ... Read More
