THE BUTT LIFT IS THE NEW BOOB JOB

Big butts are in! Not every woman is genetically blessed with a generous posterior like Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj, but there is a way anyone can sport junk in the trunk: plastic surgery. Buttock augmentation, better known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, has seen a dramatic increase as women look to inflate their pancake asses. Over the last year, the cosmetic operation jumped in popularity by 58 percent! One plastic surgeon, Dr. Constantino Mendieta, explains that womanly curves are in style and this is fueling the procedure’s popularity: “The trend can definitely be attributed to more women wanting to emulate the look of Kim Kardashian’s and Jennifer Lopez’s shapely buttocks based on what I hear in my own offices on a near-daily basis.” The Brazilian Butt Lift takes unwanted fat from the patient’s own body and transfers it to the posterior, then molds it to give the perfect juicy booty. The procedure costs between $8,000 and $12,000. Get the whole scoop on this butt trend at Dailymail.co.uk.

CAVEMAN CONDOMS

Did you know thousands of years ago a caveman painted a selfie of himself wearing a primitive condom? Or that the famous womanizer Casanova made himself condoms out of linen tied down with ribbon? These are just some of the facts we learned from this video about the history of condoms. It’s all surprisingly interesting, and it’s made more so in this short film about prophylactic history…presented via dioramas. Watch, learn, laugh:

BDSM GETS YOU HIGH

Thanks to the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism) is growing in popularity. But why bring whips, chains and floggers into the bedroom at all? Science may have discovered at least one solid reason: pain gets you high. Researchers recruited 14 people from the BDSM scene and administered a series of tests that examined their higher cognitive functions before they got down to kinky fun. They then gave the participants the same tests after the BDSM sessions and discovered that the results were different—after the sadomasochistic experience, the kinksters scored lower on the tests measuring their higher brain functions. It was as if rough play intoxicated them. The researchers theorized that sadomasochistic sex and the pain involved may cause a reduction in blood flow to the parts of the brain involved with higher thinking, causing an altered state of consciousness.

JUDGE RULES THAT STRIPPING ISN'T ART

Bad news, everybody: legally, stripping is not art according to a New York judge. Certain live artistic performances, like the ballet, are exempt from charging sales tax on their tickets. The Hustler strip joint in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC argued that its ladies are artistic dancers and the services they provide, like private dances in the back room, should be tax-free. The case went to court but Hustler lost and has to pay $2.1 million in back sales tax. For the whole story, visit NYDailyNews.com.

JERSEY SHORE MAKES YOU SLUTTY

A new study in the scientific journal Media Psychology is examining the sexual content and impact of the infamous TV series Jersey Shore and has reached some surprising conclusions: watching the show may encourage people to sleep around. Jersey Shore was an MTV reality show that followed the adventures of eight young New Jerseyans living in a house together and engaging in drinking, fighting, working out, fighting, partying, drinking and screwing. The study found it was a sex-drenched show: “Viewers of Jersey Shore were likely to see 23 instances of sexual talk and 25 instances of sexual behavior in an average episode. Put another way, viewers were exposed to an average of one sexual instance every minute that they were tuned into Jersey Shore." All this sex had an impact on the viewers, especially on the 18- to 20-year-old age group. The people on the show served as "sexual super peers” and the viewers wanted to emulate them and their “permissive sexual attitudes.” Find out more at Nerve.com.
