Saucy Sheriff's Sex Romp

WINNIPEG -- A pair of courthouse sheriff's officers are on unpaid leave and face possible disciplinary action for their guest starring roles in a saucy Internet sex video.

The video, allegedly recorded during Grey Cup weekend in Winnipeg, shows the male and female officers canoodling with a porn performer identified as Oshean in what appears to be a hotel room.

Justice officials were alerted to the existence of the video yesterday, said Jeff Schnoor, assistant deputy minister of courts.

"We do take the matter seriously," Schnoor said. "An investigation began as soon as it came to our attention."

Schnoor said it has yet to be determined if the male and female officer violated any code of conduct provisions by participating in the video. He would not explain why they were placed on leave without pay.

"We have enough information to determine that it is the proper course of action," Schnoor said.

On her website, Oshean, who is based in Winnipeg, describes herself as an "XXX adult web star" who believes sex "is a really great way to make friends."

She describes her video offerings as "REAL reality porn."

Text accompanying the Grey Cup video reads: "Grey Cup weekend closes off with a bang when Oshean gets wild with the hottest (woman) she could find."

Oshean declined comment when a Sun reporter reached her by telephone.

"I suppose you should probably be talking to them," she said of the other two people in the video.

Oshean has two websites. One describes her as an "independent porn star escort" who believes "sex is a recreational activity" and is available for "incalls only" in downtown Winnipeg.

Rates for men and couples are listed on the same site.

Information about Oshean, including her measurements, can also be found on a website listing of Winnipeg escorts.

The online sex romp is the latest in a string of embarrassing incidents for the local sheriff's department. Earlier this month, supervisor and former Blue Bomber great Willard Reaves was placed on leave following allegations of unprofessional conduct.

Last March a sheriff's officer was charged with arson and fraud after he allegedly torched his own SUV and tried to pin the blame on outlaw bikers.

Woman Offers Her Eggs On Internet To Pay Off Credit Card

A young woman has put her eggs for sale on the internet to pay off £15,000 of credit card debts.

Alexandra Saunders posted her details on an American website after reading about the huge amount that can be made in a woman's magazine.

The 26-year-old, who already has three jobs to try and pay off her debts, thought it would be an easy way to make money.

It is illegal for a woman to sell her eggs within the UK but egg donation is big business in the US where childless couples pay up to £20,000 in exchange the eggs of a young healthy woman.

Fine For Taping Women

Victoria, AU -- A Victorian man who covertly videotaped the "Genital regions" of hundreds of women, including many during the Indy carnival, has apologized for his "dumb mistake".

A magistrate described the taping as "disgusting" when he fined recent IT graduate Paul Robert Smith, 29, $1800, however did not record a conviction because he did not believe there had been any "pre planning"

"It's something that is disgusting, particularly for the women and something that is just completely unacceptable behavior," Magistrate Ray Rinaudo said. Smith pleaded guilty in Southport Magistrate's Court. He apologized to the women and denied that he planned to put the videos on the internet.

S Korea To Pay Men Who Promise Not To Buy Sex

SEOUL, South Korea -- South Korea has launched a campaign offering cash to men if they promise not to buy sex from prostitutes after year-end office parties, government officials said Tuesday.

The move is aimed at changing the party culture in this male-dominated society by winning commitments from male employees to abstain from hiring prostitutes after the parties, said an official at the Gender Equality and Family Ministry. A total of $5,000 will be paid to companies based on the largest number of volunteers who sign a pledge, the official said. AP

Man Whose Sex Drive Rose After Injury Claims $7 Million

A Christian newly-wed has filed a £3.5 million compensation claim against his employers, saying that his marriage was ruined because his sex drive spiralled out of control after he injured his head at work.

Stephen Tame, 29, from East Bergholt, Suffolk, fell from a gantry while working in a bicycle warehouse in January 2002. Although he made a full physical recovery after two years of specialist treatment, he claims that the accident led to severe sexual disinhibition, which is destroying his marriage.

His wife, Sarah (photo on the right), 30, has had to spend nights away from him “to get some respite”, and he has resorted to using pornography and visiting a prostitute.

Mrs Tame, who got married to her husband eight months before the accident, was also shocked to find that he had been unfaithful to her, with a 57-year-old woman who attended the same church.

Mr Tame’s lawyers say that his behaviour has become rude and physically aggressive.

He is suing his former employers, Professional Cycling Marketing, for damages, through his wife. In September last year judgment was entered in favour of Mr Tame on the basis of 100 per cent liability. Judge Michael Harris must now decide how much compensation to award.

Mrs Tame, who is now living with her parents, wept as she told the court of her reaction to her husband’s infidelity. “I was in total shock. It was horrible. I was in turmoil. We love each other, but the love is slowly going.

“When I left we were not living apart as such; I was just having a respite. My head was in turmoil.

“We both try to pray every day and we try to pray together. The church has been supporting us and they are trying to keep us together. They tell us not to make any harsh decisions.”

She added that her husband’s carers had advised her to sleep in a separate bed to avoid encouraging his high sex drive.

Asked by the defence whether she had separated from Mr Tame to increase the value of the compensation claim, she said: “That was never my intention in leaving. I was becoming mentally ill because of the whole issue of the accident.”

She is seeing a counsellor and taking antidepressants.

Bill Braithwaite, QC, Mr Tame’s barrister, said: “Mr Tame has a presentation which can be described as ‘fatuous euphoria’ and has been significantly disinhibited sexually, and a significant question has arisen in relation to Mr and Mrs Tame’s marriage. The sexual side of their life is pretty troubled and unfortunately reveals a visit to a prostitute recently.

“Mrs Tame appears to have left her husband on several occasions, the most recent being last month.”

Mr Tame’s legal advisers have based their compensation claim on the belief that he will not be able to work again, and on the assumption that his marriage will collapse within a year under the strain of his inflated sex drive.

Counsel for the defence are arguing that Mr Tame will eventually be able to work for up to 16 hours a week, and that his marriage may survive, which would lower the cost of his care. The hearing continues at the High Court in London.

Man Says Woman Claiming Rape Paid Him For Sex

A man charged with raping a woman he met through a singles chat line denied the charge on Monday, and claimed that she paid him for sex.Chad Franco, 33, is charged with first-degree sexual assault, robbery, use of a weapon to commit a felony and possession of methamphetamine.The alleged victim told KETV NewsWatch 7's Suzanne Deyo that she met Franco through the telephone dating service called Live Links. The woman said she was raped after responding to the ad and meeting a man through the service.

Police said Franco and the alleged victim spoke on the phone about six times before the woman invited Franco to her home."The next thing I know, he comes in, forces me to the bedroom, ties me up, rapes me and says if I could get myself loose he wouldn't rob me," the woman told KETV NewsWatch 7 in an interview last month.In court on Monday morning, Franco's attorney offered a different story.

He said that after Franco arrived at the woman's apartment, he told the woman he wasn't going to do anything with her based on how she looked. Franco's attorney said his client told her he would need to get paid if he had sex with her. Franco's attorney said that's when the woman gave Franco some gift cards and DVDs.

The alleged victim claims Franco used a gun and knife to force her to have sex with him. She also said he stole the gift cards and DVDs from her.On Monday, the judge decided there was enough evidence to bind Franco over to district court on charges of first-degree sexual assault, use of a weapon to commit a felony and robbery.Police said they haven't recovered a gun or knife, but they did recover a rope that Franco allegedly used to tie up the woman. Police said she had rope burns on her arms and wrists immediately after the incident.

Oldman Traded Crack For Sex

An 80-year-old man from Bloomfield pleaded guilty on Wednesday to charges that he traded crack cocaine from his home, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reported.Pittsburgh police first arrested Felix Cocco in November 2005 after he had been dealing drugs from his back porch for almost a year and then again in February 2006, police said.Police confiscated crack, a digital scale, packing materials and a pistol during that first arrest.

Cocco had wanted to remain sexually active after his wife died three years ago and turned to prostitutes, his defense attorney, Martha Bailor, said.Assistant District Attorney Matt Wholey said he would forgo seeking mandatory sentences that would put Cocco in prison for at least seven years if Cocco and Bailor agreed to a six-to-18 month jail term.Bailor said she was concerned about her client's vulnerability in jail, so Manning has ordered a presentence evaluation of Cocco's health.Manning also put Cocco on house arrest, where he will wear an electronic-monitoring bracelet until he is sentenced on October 2.

Some Woman Allergic To Sex With Men

Women can be allergic to sex with men, but doctors are finding women can overcome this allergy through regular sex combined with treatments derived from semen.

"It's really a very rare condition, but it does happen," allergist and immunologist David Resnick at New York Presbyterian Hospital told LiveScience.

Semen allergy symptoms can include itching, burning and swelling in the genitals. In the most severe cases, hives or swelling might appear elsewhere on the body and the woman might experience difficulty breathing.

"Typically symptoms occur within 30 minutes of intercourse, but in rare cases it may be hours or even days later," Resnick explained.

One study from the University of Cincinnati of 1,073 women who sought information on semen allergy concerning their symptoms found 130 had the allergy. In some women, the reaction occurs only with one partner while others are allergic to all partners.

Women are not in all cases allergic to semen itself, but to chemicals in the semen from food, beverages or medications the man has had, ranging from penicillin to compounds in walnuts. However, "this is rare, even more rare than semen allergy itself," Resnick said.

Resnick said about half of all women with semen allergy have other allergies as well, such as skin allergy or hay fever. Most women with the allergy are between age 20 and 30, and 41 percent experience symptoms the first time they have sex.

"In most cases, symptoms gradually worsen and occur sooner with subsequent exposures," he said.

To desensitize a woman's immune system against semen, doctors can either apply diluted samples of semen to a woman's vagina every 20 minutes, gradually increasing the concentration over the course of several hours, or the women can receive allergy shots containing small amounts of semen over the course of several weeks. Both techniques require sex two or three times a week to train their immune system.

There are also cases where women have "outgrown" the allergy without treatment.

The compounds in the semen that appear to trigger this allergy seem to be proteins from the prostate gland. "People are now testing them for use in desensitization therapies," Resnick said.

Resnick discussed the condition today at the annual meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology in Philadelphia.

Mariah Carey Vs Mary Carey

Singer Mariah Carey has threatened legal action against porn star Mary Carey to stop her trademarking her similar-sounding stage name.

The singer believes fans could get the two performers confused if Mary Carey's trademark application is successful.

However, the adult film actress, whose real name is Mary Cook, has said she will not be intimidated by the singer.

"I'm ready to battle Mariah over this because I've been Mary Carey for a long time," she told Reuters.

"It's kind of funny because I'm a porn star and I've been being myself for a long time. I think she's being silly."

The actress started using the stage name Mary Carey in 2002 and ran for California governor against Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Grammy-winning Mariah Carey is particularly concerned by the possible confusion in the names because the actress wants to trademark the name for audio and video recordings.

But David Beitchman, a lawyer for Mary Carey, said he believed Mariah Carey stood little chance of winning a court battle over the names.

"My first thought was, does Mariah Carey realise what her lawyer is comparing her to and are they seriously concerned?" he said.

"Do they seriously think the fans are going to be confused?"

Condoms Too Big For Indian Men

A survey of more than 1,000 men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men.

The study found that more than half of the men measured had penises that were shorter than international standards for condoms.

It has led to a call for condoms of mixed sizes to be made more widely available in India.

The two-year study was carried out by the Indian Council of Medical Research.

Over 1,200 volunteers from the length and breadth of the country had their penises measured precisely, down to the last millimetre.

The scientists even checked their sample was representative of India as a whole in terms of class, religion and urban and rural dwellers.

The conclusion of all this scientific endeavour is that about 60% of Indian men have penises which are between three and five centimetres shorter than international standards used in condom manufacture.

Doctor Chander Puri, a specialist in reproductive health at the Indian Council of Medical Research, told the BBC there was an obvious need in India for custom-made condoms, as most of those currently on sale are too large.

The issue is serious because about one in every five times a condom is used in India it either falls off or tears, an extremely high failure rate.

And the country already has the highest number of HIV infections of any nation.

'Not a problem'

Mr Puri said that since Indians would be embarrassed about going to a chemist to ask for smaller condoms there should be vending machines dispensing different sizes all around the country.

"Smaller condoms are on sale in India. But there is a lack of awareness that different sizes are available. There is anxiety talking about the issue. And normally one feels shy to go to a chemist's shop and ask for a smaller size condom."

But Indian men need not be concerned about measuring up internationally according to Sunil Mehra, the former editor of the Indian version of the men's magazine Maxim.

"It's not size, it's what you do with it that matters," he said.

"From our population, the evidence is Indians are doing pretty well.

"With apologies to the poet Alexander Pope, you could say, for inches and centimetres, let fools contend."

Muslim Woman Offers Sex Tips On TV

Heba Kotb is a conservative Muslim, wears an Islamic head scarf, and goes on television once a week to talk frankly and in great detail about sex.

On her show, Big Talk, Kotb answers questions from Muslims all over the Middle East about the most intimate bedroom issues with an openness that is shocking and revolutionary in a society where discussing the subject is taboo.

“How do I talk about these issues? Very seriously,” the Egyptian sexologist says.

”I put on a mask-like face and make sure I speak in the right tone of voice,” she adds.

She also does it by talking about sex in an Islamic light, arguing that the faith is in favor of pleasure for both men and women, with one important caveat that it be only in the context of marriage.


“I'm very proud of my religion,” Kotb said in an interview at Cairo University, where she teaches forensic medicine.

“My studies revealed to me more and more how Islam was ahead in all sexual matters ... I discovered that Islam understood sex long before the rest of the world,” she adds.

For example, Islam “stresses the importance of foreplay,” Kotb said, and she often stresses to listeners that women should also enjoy sex.

Kotb's frankness is a hit in a region where sex education is minimal, male-female contact is often discouraged and talk on the subject is usually in hushed tones, allowing myths to circulate freely.

She lectured in Saudi Arabia and Yemen recently, where she said many men in the audience where shocked, while women some with veiled faces bombarded her with questions.

Kotb, 39 and married with three daughters, studied sexology at Maimonides University, a private school in Florida, and combined it with her own knowledge of her religion to produce a dissertation titled Sexuality in Islam.

She opened a sexology clinic in Cairo in 2002, wrote sex advice columns in newspapers, appeared on talk shows and answered questions on an Arabic website.

She started Big Talk on the independent Egyptian satellite channel El-Mehwar more than two months ago.

Much of her advice is straight biology laying out facts rarely aired elsewhere. Nothing is too sensitive.

She discusses sexual positions, female orgasm, oral sex (allowed, “since there is no religious text banning it”), even masturbation (frowned upon but at least preferable to unmarried or adulterous sex, which is haram, meaning forbidden by religion).

Ubelievable Sex Trial That Can Happen Only In USA

Utah, US -- Utah Supreme Court justices acknowledged Tuesday that they were struggling to wrap their minds around the concept that a 13-year-old Ogden girl could be both an offender and a victim for the same act - in this case, having consensual sex with her 12-year-old boyfriend.

The girl was put in this odd position because she was found guilty of violating a state law that prohibits sex with someone under age 14. She also was the victim in the case against her boyfriend, who was found guilty of the same violation by engaging in sexual activity with her.

"The only thing that comes close to this is dueling," said Justice Michael Wilkins, noting that two people who take 20 paces and then shoot could each be considered both victim and offender.
And Chief Justice Christine Durham wondered if the state Legislature had intended the "peculiar consequence" that a child would have the simultaneous status of a protected person and an alleged perpetrator under the law.

The comments came in oral arguments on a motion asking the high court to overturn the finding of delinquency - the legal term in juvenile court for a conviction - against Z.C., who became pregnant after she and her boyfriend engaged in sex in October 2003. State authorities filed delinquency petitions in July 2004, alleging that each had committed sexual abuse of a
child, a second-degree felony if committed by an adult.

The girl appealed the petition, saying her constitutional right to be treated equally under the law had been violated. Her motion noted that for juveniles who are 16 and 17, having sex with others in their own age group does not qualify as a crime. Juveniles who are 14 or 15 and have sex with peers can be charged with unlawful conduct with a minor, but the law provides for mitigation when the age difference is less than four years, making the offense a misdemeanor.

For adolescents under 14, though, there are no exceptions or mitigation and they are never considered capable of consenting to sex. A juvenile court judge denied the motion by Z.C., who then admitted to the offense while preserving her right to appeal to a higher court. The Utah Court of Appeals last December upheld the judge's refusal to dismiss the allegation.

At Tuesday's arguments, Matthew Bates, an assistant Utah attorney general, argued the prosecution of the girl was not unreasonable. He said the statute in question is designed to prevent sex with children who are 13 and younger, even if the other person is in the same age group. By passing that law, legislators were sending a message, Bates said: Sex with or among children is unacceptable.

Randall Richards, the girl's attorney, argued that prosecuting children under a law meant to protect them is illogical.

Bill To Change Sex On Paper In NYC Killed

NEW YORK, US -- New York City's health department on Tuesday rejected a proposal that would have allowed transgender people to switch the gender on their birth certificates without a sex-change operation.

Advocates who had been praising the proposal as ground-breaking for the rights of transgender people called it a frustrating setback when officials rescinded the proposal just before it was due for a vote by the board of health.

Had it passed, people who live in the gender opposite their genitalia would have been able to acquire a new birth certificate if they had the backing of doctors and mental health professionals.

The health department cited "broader societal ramifications"for killing the proposal, noting that hospitals, schools and jails still must classify people by gender.

"For example, how can you send a person with a penis to a women's prison?"said one health department official who requested anonymity because he was not authorised to speak for the department.

New York City's health department had made the proposal in recognition that many transgender people cannot afford sex reassignment surgery or do not consider it necessary to live in their acquired gender.
