ITALIAN PORNSTAR GIVES UP SEX FOR THE WORLD CUP 

Last week in our sex news roundup we wrote about how Mexico’s soccer team is prohibited from getting it on during the World Cup in the belief it will help their performance. Now we have a story out of Italy about abstaining for soccer, but this time it’s not the players giving up sex: it’s a pornstar. Adult performer Rocco Siffredi, who’s starred in over 1300 porn movies, is not having sex “for the entire time our national squad is in Brazil.” We’re not sure how this will help the Italian team’s chances, but we’re sure the players are flattered Siffredi’s thinking of them.

SEX IN A CAR PRANK

What happens when a group of pranksters set up on a busy street with speakers to broadcast sex noises from their car as they rock it back and forth? Pretty much what you’d expect: lots of attention from those walking by, although the crew probably didn’t expect the cops to get involved. See it all go down right here: 

BOY BAND EROTIC FICTION GETS SIX-FIGURE PUBLISHING DEAL

The hit Fifty Shades of Grey novels began online as erotic Twilight fanfiction before being rewritten (and de-Twilighted) and published to mass success and huge profits. Now a new online fanfiction work is drawing in the big bucks, but this time it’s not about vampires but pop stars. Anna Todd, a 25-year-old from Texas, has signed a six-figure three-book deal adapting her online erotic fantasy fiction about British boy band One Direction. Todd’s work has already amassed 800 million clicks  on the internet and there’s already talk about a movie deal—maybe the One Direction guys will want to star as themselves in the future film?

SOCCER IS BETTER THAN SEX?

It appears that the World Cup is just not good for people’s sex lives: a new poll is showing that if they had to choose, 40 percent of men would rather catch a World Cup match on TV than have sex. In some follow-up questions it was discovered that 42 percent of the guys surveyed would take sex over soccer but would try to finish quickly so as to have time to watch the game. Only 37 percent of the men said they would choose the solution that gives them their cake and lets them eat it too: multitask by just leaving the television on and having sex while watching the World Cup.

TROPHY WIVES ARE MOSTLY A MYTH

There’s a belief that rich and powerful men—who may not have much to offer in the looks, personality and youthful vigor departments—often marry “trophy wives.” That is, young, attractive women who act as a living trophy belonging to the rich man and who are with him only for his money and influence. Now a new paper in the academic journal American Sociological Review is showing that the concept of trophy wives is largely a myth. The study looks at previous research for why people get married and the status of both partners and claims that the data shows that many women marry men who are at a similar level of wealth, age and perceived attractiveness as themselves. Of course, there are marriages that seem to support the trophy wife cliché, but the paper claims when there is such a disparity between the partners, those relationships generally don’t last long.
