This video of Olivia Munn and Bethenny Frankel trying to pole dance hurts my soul a little. Leave it to professionals, ladies.

Yet another cop was caught extorting sexual favors from a prostitute. 

West Palm Beach, Fla., is considering some crazy new legislation that will allow arrests for “prostitution related offenses” in public, including: “asking for sex, offering to have sex, asking a woman to show her breasts, touching a woman’s breast or a man’s crotch, telling someone where to find a prostitute, or employing someone for ‘immoral purposes.’”

Voters in Los Angeles will soon decide whether or not to extend the condoms-in-porn mandate beyond L.A. City limits, into a countywide ordinance.

I second M&C. Last night: climbed up the damn pole, did an aerial invert, jade (front splits, upside down), smoothly transitioned into a gemini-scorpio leg switch (inside/outside leg hangs), into a straddle hip hold. Applause, tips, anything in a packed club? NOPE. I got a few bills when I finally gave up and did a few butt isolations out of frustration.

Girl after me on stage after me got rained on for just doing the stripper booty jiggle for 3 songs straight.
