Famous Hooker Wins Millions In Smut Lottery

 

ashley alexandra dupreIt looks like any where from $1M to $5M. See here. Dupre’s also cashed in about $200K from her two singles on aimestreet.com. Not bad for a week’s work. Finally, here’s an overview article from CBSNEWS that details her prospects and calls her a “club rat.” Sweet. There’s some stuff about Charlie Sheen, a cheerleader outfit, and a threesome floating around, but I can’t bring myself to post it. That’s my smut threshold.

I totally don’t have a problem with any of this. Good on her. Doing the Gov and raking in millions is way WAY better than working 40 hours per and making $45k a year. I dare anyone to argue with that. Really. There is a definitely a feeling of begrudging admiration.

Don’t spend it all on blow, sister, and get yourself a college degree. While you’re at it, invest so you don’t have to turn tricks at age 30 with regular johns for a quarter of what you’re getting now.

Spitzer: Power, Sex, and Douchebaggery

Great little article from Newsweek online, called The Cheating Man’s Brain. Attempts to shed light on why high powered blowhards like Eliot Spitzer cheat. Boils down to a) high testosterone levels, b) sensation seeking, and c) because they can. I love it. Kind of sounds like me…or something.

Quote:

As the saying goes, power is also an aphrodisiac—and that’s been true, says Kruger, as long as humans have been around. “In our evolutionary history, men who had lots of resources and status and power were able to have more than one partner. Your body is basically saying if you have this power, you should use it, because that’s what has worked before,” he says. “Even in modern history, whether you’re talking about medieval kings or sultans or rock stars, quite a few have multiple partners. So you’re not so surprised to see this dynamic in politics today.”

Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer…Uber-Douche?

Okay, let’s wade into the Tom Spitzer kerfuffle. In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s all over the news and Internet, which means there’s a MASSIVE deluge of information. Nailing down points out of this morass is a pain the ass. You can find an overview of the proceedings here. The New York Times online also has excellent coverage of the scandal/tragedy/disgracement. Instead of trying to make one over-arching conclusion from the mess, I’m going to instead spew out a bunch of impressions and reactions.

Girl Proposes, Guy Disposes!

Lance’s weekend roundup linked to this article by Steve Beale on what happens when a woman proposes. The author suggests that while women are responsible for the proposal (in the sense that, if he doesn’t propose, the woman’s gonna leave–and she lets him know this beforehand), men should actually be the ones doing the deed. Hot Alpha Female wrote her own post about how emasculating it is for the girl to propose to the guy. Lance agrees, though he refers to Steve Beale’s hypothesis as “female mind control,” which most girls would not only agree with but also feel pretty good about. I am in total agreement with everyone here that the guy needs to be the one to propose. In case my asserting it doesn’t convince you on its own, let me begin this entry with two of the worst “engagement stories” that I have ever heard.

Story #1: Girl Proposes to Self

This is fantastic. There is this chick that I used to work with who’s very female-power, in the worst kind of way. Apparently her dad was a worthless chode and bowed down to every whim her mother ever had, and so it’s been impressed upon her since an early age that this is what a marriage is. So after she’d been dating her boyfriend for a few years (I want to say three) she decided that the time had come. What’s a girl to do?

Well, she picked a ring out and special-ordered it from a jeweler and had them ship it to her:

Engagement ring

Looks harmless, doesn’t it?

The Weekly: Thanks To Our Peeps Edition

Earlier in the week I invited a bunch of bloggers to engage in a posting roundtable. The subject was simple: your best advice for being more attractive, a subject near and dear to Honey and I. We asked bloggers who ranged from personal development to dating coaches to relationship advice columnists. We were interested in engaging a range of perspectives and seeing what came out of it. I figured the advice would overlap and there would also be some real gems in there. I got the idea after reading Monica O’Brien’s post, Men Need To Grow Up? on the blog Twenty Set. She had some interesting ideas in her post, and in particular this passage struck me:

“…give guys a reason to want to settle down. Be interesting. Be lovely. Be someone worth giving up bachelorhood for. Sure, men need to grow up, but they aren’t the only ones.”
