World's Smallest Bikini

The bikini is the most popular beachwear around the globe, according to French fashion historian Olivier Saillard due to "the power of women, and not the power of fashion". As he explains, "The emancipation of swimwear has always been linked to the emancipation of women.

"By the mid 2000s bikinis had become a US$811 million business annually, according to the NPD Group, a consumer and retail information company.The bikini has boosted spin-off services like bikini waxing and the sun tanning industries.

Women Who Seek Sex - "Female Sex Tourism"

What the hell is "Female Sex Tourism"? Female sex tourism is travel by women, partially or fully for the purpose of having sex.

Over 80,000 North American and European women flock to Jamaica for sex every year.

An estimated 650,000 Western women have engaged in travel sex from 1980 to the present, many of them as repeat customers.

The practice differs from male sex tourism in that women do not typically use the structures of the sex industry (e.g. strip clubs, sex shows and organised tours) to meet foreign partners.

Women's trips may be referred to as "romance tourism." They typically involve sex with locals from the holiday destination country, as opposed to with other tourists, possibly from their own country (a holiday fling).

Sex Tapes: Hollywood's Bad Girls

Just who has this sex tape of Britney?


Maybe there is no tape.

But word is that he's claiming he shot 'exclusive' footage of him and Britney while they were in Mexico. And word now has it that he is offering the tape to the World's highest bidder.

UPDATE: Now we hear that Britney may buy the tape from him....

Well, anyway...we know that the following 'girls' did appear in a 'sex tape, with or without their consent(alot of times its for the 'publicity').

But as for Britney? It's wait and see.

Kim Kasdashian

Kardashian was little known outside gossip circles until the pornographic home video she had made with then-boyfriend, R&B singer Ray J, was leaked. Vivid Entertainment was the distribution company against which Kardashian had pursued legal action for the ownership of the tape. Kardashian later dropped the suit and settled with Vivid Entertainment for US$ 5 million.

Pamela Anderson

A pornographic home video of Anderson and Tommy Lee on their honeymoon was stolen from their home, and made a huge stir on the Internet. Anderson sued the Internet Entertainment Group, the company that was distributing the video. Ultimately, the courts awarded Anderson and Lee $1.5 million plus attorney fees for their share of the profits. After this, the company sold copies of the stolen honeymoon tape across the country. It was very popular.

A second tape, which was made before the Tommy Lee tape, involving Anderson and musician Bret Michaels from Poison was later announced, and an abridged version of less than 60 seconds appeared on the internet. Frames of the video first appeared in Penthouse magazine in March 1998. However, the tape was successfully blocked by Michaels, and the full, unedited version has never been seen by the general public.

Paris Hilton

1 Night in Paris is a 2004 sex video depicting Paris Hilton and her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon engaging in sexual relations. The video was released shortly before Hilton's TV series The Simple Life debuted, causing a media sensation. Salomon originally sued Hilton for defamation when Hilton claimed publicly that she was "out of it" and didn't know what she was doing during the taping of the video. Hilton also sued Salomon over the release of the tape, but settled out of court in July 2005.

According to reports, Hilton was awarded up to $400,000 and planned to donate a percentage to charity. However, in a 2006 interview with GQ magazine, she stated: "I never received a dime from (the video). It's just dirty money and (Salomon) should give it all to some charity for the sexually abused or something."

Nymphomania is the name of what was believed to be a psychological disorder in women characterized by an overactive libido and an obsession with sex. In men the disorder is called satyriasis.

As with all psychological disorders, this was only considered an illness if it is sufficient to prevent the sufferer from living a normal life.
