Teenage girls' weight affects sexual behavior

A new study has revealed that teenage girls' weight or perception of their weight might play a role in their participation in risky sexual behaviors.

The research team from University of Pittsburgh showed that those girls who were both sexually active and overweight, or who thought they were overweight, were less likely to use condoms than normal-weight sexually active girls.

Moreover, underweight girls were also less likely to use condoms.

"This study will contribute to sexual health education prevention efforts, which can be tailored to address how cultural norms regarding body size may influence adolescent sexual decision making," said lead researcher Dr Aletha Akers, M.P.H., assistant professor of gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

"Knowing how a girl perceives her weight may be just as important as knowing her actual weight," Akers added.

The study involving nearly 7,200 high school girls from 2005 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance survey, half reported ever having sex suggested variability in the girls'' sexual activity and sexual risk-taking behavior based on their ethnicity and actual or perceived weight.

The study results are published in the journal Pediatrics.

Wife posed as girl in online trap

Cheryl Roberts, 61, pretended to be a 14-year-old girl and was asked by David Roberts, 68, to meet for sex.

Roberts admitted engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child and making and possessing illegal images.

He was given a three-year community order and banned from having access in person or online to under 18s.

The couple have now split up and are getting divorced.

Different computer

The court heard that mother-of-two Mrs Roberts became suspicious about the amount of time her husband was spending in his study and of a message which popped up on their computer while he was out.

While Roberts was chatting online in his study, Mrs Roberts used a different computer in the living room at their home in Pantygog, Bridgend, and pretended to be a schoolgirl.

Roberts propositioned the "girl", unaware he was chatting to his wife, the court was told.

Prosecutor Martyn Kelly told the court that Roberts, a former pub landlord who used the nickname 'Corky' online, also used a webcam to film himself carrying out acts of indecency - which his wife could see on her PC just yards away.

Illegal images

Mrs Roberts was so shocked by the behaviour of her husband of almost 20 years she brought in police, who seized his computer and found dozens of illegal child porn images.

Roberts believed he had been caught through downloading the images and did not know until weeks later that it was his wife who had called the police.

The court heard that, when interviewed, Roberts denied having sex with any schoolgirls but admitted he was "prepared to do so".

Byron Broadstock, defending, said: "He's brought shame on himself and his family."

Psychiatrists' reports said Roberts might have a brain disorder which causes him to be an exhibitionist.

Mr Broadstock said Roberts had been going through a dark patch at the time, was anxious to know why he had behaved in that way and would welcome treatment.

Claude Knights, director of children's charity Kidscape, said: "The offences that he has committed are very serious indeed and his wife must be commended for the active part that she played in bringing him to justice."

sex scandals to have made news in public

Let's begin with the lastest development in Madhur Bhandarkar's case wherein a magistrate's court on Wednesday said the FIR filed against him in July 2004 could not be dismissed.

Bhandarkar a National Award winning filmmaker was accused of rape and making false promises to an aspiring actress Priti Jain. She filed a case stating that she slept with him from 1999 to 2004 as he promised her a role in a movie and marriage. However, in 2005, Jain was arrested for hiring people from the underworld to have Madhur killed.

Later, the Versova police during investigation had found that the complaint filed against Bhandarkar was false, they asked a magistrate at Railway Mobile Court in Andheri to classify the case as 'B' summary and dismiss it.
The case came up for hearing on Wednesday and it seems the trouble involving the rape charges are not over. Rejecting the police contention that allegations against Bhandarkar were false, the magistrate court has said that the FIR filed against could not be dismissed.

Shakti Kapoor

Aman Verma

Thank him for making the term 'sting operation' familiar to the Indian audience. Verma was undoubtedly the reigning star of the Indian telly, when a sting operation revealed that he molested a woman. His entire career was tarnished.

The bulky Salman came to his rescue. But that hardly helped. Seems like an episode right from a K serial.
The sting operation carried out by a TV channel filmed Aman Verma making advances towards the undercover reporter and also trying to examine her 'closely'.

Shiney Ahuja

Shiney Ahuja who won Filmfare Best Debut Award for Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi in 2006 has been accused of raping a household maid.

David Beckham

David Robert Joseph Beckham, the English footballer currently plays in midfield for American Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy and the England national team.

Many ladies claim that they have 'had' Becks! But this turned really nasty when, he was accused twice. First, he was accused of having a torrid affair with Rebecca Loos, his former personal assistant.

A week later, a model named Sarah Marbeck stated that she had slept with the soccer star. Of course, Beckham denied these charges. There has never been any proof of any of the allegations of Beckham's claimed infidelity.

Top 9 Terror persons of the world

Osama Bin Laden

The most wanted man in the world is accused of master minding the 1998 bombings of U.S Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, resulting in the deaths of over 200 people. He has also been charged with conspiring to kill Americans outside the U.S. and has claimed responsibility for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre towers in New York that resulted in an estimated 3,000 deaths.

He is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, perhaps in the Waziristan region. Former U.S. President, G.W. Bush authorized a $25 million bounty, but for the last seven years, the 51 year old Saudi Arabian has managed to evade the largest man hunt in history.

Joaquin Guzman

In the shady world of South American drug cartels, it takes a particular breed of nastiness to topple the Columbians, famed for their particular brand of ruthlessness that allowed them to dominate the drug trade into the United States. So when Guzman established himself as the head of the Sinaloa Cartel, it goes with out saying that he did so in a wave of bloodshed that has killed thousands, including priests and policemen.

Known as 'El Chapo' or 'Shorty', the Mexican kingpin specialized in importing cocaine from Columbia and smuggling it into the U.S through elaborate tunnels. He was arrested in 2001 and placed in a Mexican maximum security prison, and was due to be extradited to the States. However, so deep was his influence that he orchestrated his escape, allegedly in a laundry truck, with the help of no less than seventy eight people, including, it is rumored, the facility director.

Since then he has evaded capture, while being indicted by the United States and a five million bounty has been placed on his head.

Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov

Originally from Uzbekistan, Tokhtakhounov has established himself as the modern face of the Russian mafia. Known as 'Taiwanchik' for his Asiatic features, Tokhtakhounov is suspected to be a major player in the trafficking of drugs, illegal arms and stolen motor vehicles.

He is also rumored to be heavily involved in the fixing of high profile events, ranging from beauty pageants to Olympic events at the Utah Winter Games. In 2002, he was indicted by the U.S. government for bribing Olympic figure skating judges to favor the French team, robbing the Canadians of gold medals in the pair's competition. The U.S. tried to get him extradited from Italy after his arrest there, but he was released and has since disappeared into Russia.

Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar

Arguably the most wanted man in India's history; this son of an Indian policeman allegedly oversees a criminal empire that stretches across Mumbai, Pakistan and Dubai. His organized crime group, 'D-Company' is reportedly involved in drug trafficking, counterfeiting, weapons smuggling, and murder. Ibrahim has been accused of masterminding the 1993 Bombay Blasts that killed 257 people and wounded 713.

According to reports, the lone surviving gunman from the November 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, Ajmal Amir Kasab, has allegedly confessed to authorities that Ibrahim's organization provided the terrorists with the arms and explosives to carry out the attacks.

The Indian government has long suspected him of having ties with Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence agency and believes that the Pakistan government is sheltering him in Karachi. The United States government has declared him a 'global terrorist' and has associated him with Al Qaeda. The United Nations has attempted to freeze his assets and Interpol has placed him on their most wanted list, but as yet he remains protected in Pakistan. It's been rumored that the 52 year old has had significant plastic surgery to alter his appearance.

Matteo Messina Denaro

The 'playboy' of the Italian mafia, Denaro seen as the most powerful and influential member of the Costa Nostra, taking advantage of the vacuum in power left by the arrest of long time leaders like Bernardo Provenzano in 2006.

Denaro is known for his taste in expensive watches, fast cars and young women, but this is no mere playboy playing gangster, Denaro has been implicated in the deadly 1993 bomb attacks that forced the Italian government to stop its campaign to crack down on the mafia. He is also rumored to be heavily involved in the international drug trade and extortion rackets. Recently, "Diabolik" as he is also known, has been rumored to be involved in money laundering rings that allow him to circulated hundreds of millions of dollars. It has also been estimated that he has been involved in the murders of at least 50 people.

The Sicilian has since evaded arrest following the 1993 attacks and has been sentenced to life in prison (in absentia).

Félicien Kabuga

The most wanted man in Africa, Kabuga is held responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children, having been the driving force behind the Rwandan genocide in 1994.

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda issued an international arrest warrant for Kabuga, a rich businessman, and charged him with crimes including genocide, the conspiracy to commit genocide and the complicity in genocide. He has been accused of bankrolling the Hutu militias who carried out the massacres of over 800,000 Tutsi civilians over a period of 100 days in Rwanda. He allegedly provided arms, transportation and uniforms to the militias and purchased thousands of machetes and hoes, which were used as weapons to attack unarmed civilians. Kabuga's radio station was also heard to propagate extremist Hutu ideology and exhort the militias to wipe out the Tutsi population.

Following the conquest of Rwanda by the Tutsi dominated Rwandan Patriotic Front, Kabuga has fled the country and is currently a fugitive, having attempted to seek refuge in Switzerland and the Democratic Republic of Congo, before being admitted into Kenya, where he is rumored to be a resident in Nairobi.

Joseph Kony

The founder and head of The Lord's Resistance Army, a guerilla group that is conducting a violent and bloody campaign to establish a theocratic government in Uganda, using a system of governance based on the Bible and the Ten Commandments.

Kony has been issued with a warrant by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. It is believed that under his direction, the LRA has been responsible for the displacement of two million people, the abduction of approximately 60,000 people, including 30,000 children, who are used as soldiers in his campaign of murder, destruction, rape, sexual slavery and mutilation. Allegedly, Kony has been known force children to murder their own parents as part of their initiation into the LRA.

In the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, the United States government placed Kony on their 'global terrorist' list, a move that carries severe financial and other penalties. It is unknown whether Kony has any assets that would be affected by this designation.

James 'Whitey' Bulger

The leader of an Irish-American crime family, Bulger controlled the drug trade and extortion rackets in South Boston, building up a fortune that is believed to be in excess of $50 million. He has been implicated in a number of murders, and has been known to associate with a number of major criminal enterprises across North America and Europe, including the Irish Republican Army.

According to sources, Bulger was a gangster of the old school, refusing to deal in heroin and to children, extracting violent retribution against dealers who disobeyed his edicts.

The FBI has tracked Bulger for more than a decade, placing him on their 'Ten Most Wanted' list and a $1 million bounty on his head. However, due to his wealth and extensive lists of contacts built up over the decades, the 80 year old mob boss has managed to evade capture, and is currently rumored to have relocated to Sicily, with last confirmed sighting of him being in London, 2002.

Omid Tahvili

The kingpin of an Iranian crime family, Tahvili is believed to be connected to various triads and global criminal groups. Known as "Nino", the Iranian is based in Canada and is suspected of heading up one of the major crime organizations operating of the Iranian community in Canada.

In 2005, Tahvili was arrested for the torture and sexual assault of a male relative of an associate he suspected of stealing $500,000 dollars from him. He was awaiting sentencing in a maximum security prison in British Columbia, but walked out after bribing a guard with $50,000.

The U.S. government is seeking his arrest in relation to an alleged operation of a fraudulent telemarketing business that scammed approximately three million dollars from elderly American victims. Tahvili is rumored to have contacts throughout the Middle East and Europe, and is believed to run operations in these areas. He remains at large.

Things you cannot buy with £45m

Certain Masterpiece

Looking for something to brighten up the grand hall of your new country estate?

Work by Warhol or Rothko may be just about affordable, but if you are taken by Renoir's Le Moulin de la Galette or Van Gogh's Portrait of Dr Gachet, think again.

You will need to keep playing the lottery and hope for a second jackpot if you like Jackson Pollock's abstract No. 5, 1948, rumoured to have sold last year for a record-breaking $140m (£84m).


For lessons in how to spend millions, Russian billionaires are a good place to start.

It is considerably over budget at a reported $1.2bn (£722m) but Roman Abramovich's yacht is a fine example of how not to scrimp.

The Eclipse - which resembles the floating home of a James Bond villain - is almost the length of two football pitches.

It is said 70 crew members are needed to run the yacht. Security on board is so tight there are missile defence and intruder detection systems, as well as a system which can detect paparazzi cameras.

It also has two helipads, 11 guest cabins, two swimming pools (one of which can be drained and converted into a dance floor), three launch boats, an aquarium and a mini-submarine.

Large Caribbean Island

Buying an island is when you truly enter the super-rich bracket, so a relatively paltry £45m will not go far.

Admittedly, there are options in Scotland, Dorset and further afield in the British Virgin Islands - the 43-acre Buck Island advertised for $50m (£30m) comes just within budget.

But if you are looking for something with a bit more room then Ronde Island, in Grenada, gives you 2,000 acres of remote, untouched Caribbean paradise where the water is so clear you can see 100ft under the surface.

It was on the market two years ago for $100m (£60m).

Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese footballer, and reportedly soon-to-be Armani model, will be £35m over-budget.

Silky footwork and an eye for the back of the net made the 24-year-old the game's most expensive player when Real Madrid stumped up £80m for him this summer.

A recent ankle injury may mean, with some tough bargaining skills, you could get him for a knock-down price.

But given that you would need to buy another 10 men for a team, it may not be the best use of your jackpot win.

Blockbuster Movie

Harbouring an urge to step into Steven Spielberg's world? Then you may require a bank loan.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End came in at $300m (£181m) with the likes of Spider-Man 3, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and James Bond's Quantum of Solace not far behind.

Just within a £45m budget was Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Doctor Dolittle, according to The Numbers.com

Or you could make lots and lots of films like 1999's Blair Witch Project, which cost a mere $35,000 (£21,000) to make.

Ant and Dec for five years

TV presenters Ant and Dec do not come cheap.

ITV have just signed up the pair, who started out as teenage actors on BBC children's show Byker Grove, to a two-year exclusive deal.

Reports suggest the contract is worth a cool £20m to the duo, even though it represents a 10% pay cut on last year's deal.

That being the case, if you want them for five years, you will need to hit them with another pay cut, or make do with them for just four.

Private Jet

There should be no problem picking up a helicopter for around the £1m mark but if it is top-of-the-range you are after, you'll need three times your jackpot win.

The FA-22 Raptor is one of the world's most expensive jets, priced at $260m (£156m) five years ago.

It can fly at 1,500km/h and still remain undetected by radar.

It is able to fire precisely targeted smart bombs and can also engage hostile aircraft far beyond the pilot's vision.

Diamond Mine

Diamonds are no trouble on a £45m budget. In fact, you could stretch to a dozen flawless blue diamonds.

The gem is one of the rarest in the world and one was bought at auction in Hong Kong auction in 2007 for almost £4m.

But if that is not enough sparkle, there are diamond mines for sale in Israel, South Africa and Western Australia among other places.

One South African mine was bought by Petra Diamonds for one billion rand (£72m) two years ago - a little over-budget but with some wise investment, you could revisit your plans in a few years' time.

10 most Sexiest Singers of the world

Beyonce Knowles is among those who have made it to a new list of the 'Sexiest Female Singers'.

A website has come up with its list of the top 10 sexy singers, reports the Daily Chilli. According to the TopSexyWomen.com website, these are the top 10 sexiest female singers:

1. Beyonce

The popstar doesn't have to try hard to sing or look sexy because she is both. The singer, who sizzled in this red-hot outfit during the recent MTV music awards, also has the pipes which won her the prestigious Billboard Woman of the Year Awar at a gala brunch in New York in October.

'She has not only influenced pop culture with her hit songs and her signature dance moves, but has inspired women everywhere with her unique style, business savvy and dedication to charitable causes,' Contactmusic quoted publication editorial director Bill Werde as saying.

2. Shakira

You know what they say, sexiness is all in the mind and this Latin pop princess is not 'insecure' or 'uncomfortable of her body' after hitting her 30s.

The 32-year-old singer, who donned a figure hugging, skin-coloured leotard for her latest She Wolf video, is now ready to tread the not-so-tried road of steamy onscreen appearances.

Contactmusic quoted her as saying: 'We all have our own insecurities but I used to have more of those days in my 20s. I found nothing satisfied me and I just wanted to hide from the world. You should always make the most of what you've got and I think I've tried my entire life to figure that out. Now I feel a lot more comfortable in my own body.'

3. Christina Aguilera

At third place is Christina Aguilera who said becoming a mother has made her feel sexier.

The singer, who delivered Max, her first child with husband Jordan Bratman, last January, insists that parenthood has harnessed her personality and also her sex appeal.

'Since becoming a mum, I feel I have more knowledge and that makes me feel beautiful. I feel more centred, which makes me feel confident and sexy,' the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

4. Mariah Carey

This popstar dazed all with her idyllic voice and to-die-for body.

Mariah, who got rid of a great amount of weight through a combination diet, has been branded hardworking by longtime trainer Patricia Gay.

'I feel great, it's hard work to stay in shape but the results are worth it,' the Mirror quoted Mariah as saying.

'She's been toned since the beginning, she is small. She has only muscle and no fat at all. She is a hard worker!' Patricia said.

Mariah makes no bones about the fact that her toned body has not been acquired easily, as she follows a 'bleak' 1,500 calorie-a-day diet, comprising few of her favourite comfort foods.

'It's mainly about the diet, so when my trainer leaves it's sooo hard to stick to it! For breakfast, Patricia will make some boring eggs and I don't really like eggs anyway, and she'll give me some probiotic yoghurt to help with digestion,' Mariah said.

5. Britney Spears

At number five is Britney Spears whose music video for new single 3 has been dubbed raunchier than ever. The singer was said to have flaunted her tiny frame with statement blonde locks and minimal clothes in the video. The pop princess was spotted in a series of cut-out leotards as she gyrated to the sound of raunchy sound effects, reports The Mirror. The 27-year-old is also seen taking to the pole while rubbing up against her barely clad female dancers.

6. Ciara

The popstar is one hot singer whose breathy voice and sexy videos keep fans panting for more 'Love, Sex and Magic'.

7. Jessica Simpson

She has got the voice and the body perfect for a pop princess. Now, if only she can break even with a great single.

8. Madonna

Rocking her way to the list is Madonna who explained why she likes younger men.

It appears that the Queen of Pop, 51, who's dating 22-year-old Brazilian model Jesus Luz, believes that blokes are 'more adventurous, open and fun.'

According to her, men her age are 'usually married, divorced, grumpy, fat and balding,' reports The Sun.

She also reckons that her body is part of her 'job'.

'If I'm not in good shape, then how can I dance around on stage with my butt hanging out, right?' she added.

9. Hilary Duff

Remember the sweet-faced star of Cinderella Story? Well, bid her innocent looks goodbye for the singer/actress shed her good girl image with a raunchy role in her upcoming film.

The 20-year-old star plays the role of a 'slutty' pop star in the John Cusack film, War, Inc, based on war profiteers.

'She played a pop idol from central Asia. So, she was like a Hilary but not Hilary, because Hilary is so classy, but like a real, and I won't name names, but a real slutty pop star... Hilary is the opposite of that, of course,' News.com.au quoted Cusack, as telling MTV.

10. Christina Milian

Christina Milian, who was once touted as the next Britney Spears, recently bared it all for a new magazine in a bid to save her plummeting music career.

And it seems the move paid off for the once fresh-faced singer rounds off the top 10 sexiest singers.

The sexy singer appears on the front cover of King magazine revealing a rather 'wild' avatar of her, to give a boost to her career, reports The Sun.

The 'AM to PM' singer's self-titled debut album was released in 2001, following collaboration with Ja Rule.

Tricks for a sex-essful marriage

"Ladies, if you want to crush your man's soul, stop giving him oral sex. If you want to blow his mind, become skilled at it," Matt Titus advises people in Why Hasn't He Proposed, the book he co-authored with wife Tamsen Fadal. That's not all... he goes on to explain how you can become "proficient at this particular job" through videos, books and even "classes that teach you trusted techniques".

With a punch line that says 'Go from the First Date to Setting the Date,' this guide for women in dead-end relationships is entertaining, to say the least. The duo share experiences they've had with friends and clients. They take turns to present their cases -- the woman's perspective and the man's -- with little drawings of a boy and a girl so as to let the reader know which sex is talking.

Their advice is fun and even insightful at times: "folks who are willing to cohabit are often the same folks who are more divorce-prone to begin with" and "contrary to popular belief, men are not biologically wired to have sex with more than one woman".

Even more amusing than the insights/cases/research are chapter titles: 'Extinguish His Fear of Wedding Hell', 'Tricks for a Sex-cessful Marriage', 'I Take Thee to Be My Wife, Not My Warden'. The wording alone may be enough to do the trick.

The book is more fun if you read it alongside How To Create A Magical Relationship by husband-wife team Ariel and Shya Kane, who've been been married for 25 years.

Ariel and Shya offer more cases and examples of clients they've successfully helped. But they tend to over-generalise ("Many women have not discovered that they can be themselves and still include their femininity") and harp on stereotypes ("A 'relationship splitter' is a person who has a specific type of incompletion with his or her parents.") To their credit, the authors attempt to explain this through examples: Boy gets friendly with couple and eventually breaks them up because he grew up believing he was a better companion for his mother than his father had been. Huh?

The 10 hottest female sports uniforms

Over the years, women have proven to be stellar athletes and, over time, some experts expect women to be able to compete and defeat male athletes. But that doesn’t mean they don’t look downright foxy in their different uniforms.

1.) The Beach Volleyball Bikini

By far, the Gold Medal of Sports Uniforms. You could put the ugliest professional beach volleyballer out there and every dude would be staring at her backside. That’s what you get for wearing a bikini and calling it a uniform.

2.) The Tennis Skirt

An oldie and a classic. Truly stands the test of time. Although, lately women have gone with the tight shorts and or suit look (Serena Williams anyone?), the skirt is still the consensus winner for tennis.

3.) The Gymnastics Leotard

Very underrated but very much appreciated. Just make sure you’re staring at someone who is of age. In fact, stick to the college competitions to avoid looking like a pedophile.

4.) Track and Field Shorts/Tank Top

Hard to ignore the popularity explosion of girls like Allison Stokke and other pole vaulters who flaunt their backside but you can’t ignore the runners who try to wear the flimsiest shorts possible in an effort to gain that extra advantage.

5.) Indoor Volleyball Shorts

There is a human being out there (probably a man) who decided that girls needed for some odd reason to wear these uncomfortable and extremely short shorts. I pray to that unknown person every day.

6.) Cheerleading Uniform

Debatable whether its a sport but they get the nod because as my friend said “they do have competitions”. I think that was code for, “they’re in short skirts, put them on the list or I kill you”.

7.) Field Hockey skirt

Not often seen unless you’re watching the Olympics or ESPNU for a random college game. Nonetheless, an extremely strong competitor in this category.

8.) Surfing wetsuit

Another one of those sports that we just don’t get to see enough. Probably because none of us know whats going on and what constitutes a good score. But if they could just focus on the bikini bottom and wetsuit, we could probably figure out everything from there.

9.) Golf Shorts

Fair to assume that us men hate women on the golf course. They’re slow and they often don’t advance the ball beyond 50 yards. But those outfits could make Bea Arthur look attractive….(ok, maybe not her…RIP Bea)

10.) Figure skating attire

Dresses, skirts, shorts….whatever these ladies put on seem to work well. Probably because most of them could fit into a suitcase but hey, I’m not complaining.

Wife allergic to husband's sperm

The couple had been lovers for two years before they got married and decided to have unprotected sex for the first time on their wedding night.

Almost immediately the bride was in unbearable pain. She found out it was because of Mike's sperm.

Plans of conceiving a baby have had to be abandoned reluctantly as it seems Julie's own body destroys the sperm.

Mike, 27, and Julie, 26, from Ambridge, Pennsylvania, started going out while at university and became engaged two years later, finally having a dream wedding in 2005. They wanted to consummate their union on their wedding night.

"Before we were always very careful and used protection - this time we didn't,' said Julie, 26.

"We figured, "we're married, if we get pregnant, we get pregnant".

"Pretty much right after I knew something was not right because I was in a lot of pain.

"The pain that I was feeling was inside, like somebody sticking needles up inside of me like a real painful burning.

"It was really scary."

The pain, and at times blisters, would go on for weeks, she said.

"On a scale of one to ten, it's pretty much ten," she said, describing the pain.

After numerous medical tests, the couple were eventually told that Julie suffers from seminal plasma hypersensitivity, which affects thousands of women in Australia.

"It can be systemic and present anaphylaxis where individuals have not just localised discomfort. They actually can have hives, soft tissue swelling … and, in the severe situations … they can ... potentially die." said immunologist Jonathan Bernstein, of Cincinnati Medical Centre University.

In short, Julie's body attacks Mike's sperm and makes it inactive.

The couple have started adoption proceedings to start their family.

The couple are featured in a documentary, Strange Sex, on the ABC in the US.

First-time mom plans to give birth live on the internet

Lynsee, a 23-year-old teacher in Minneapolis, is expecting her first child any day now. And she's decided to share the whole experience, from the first labor pain to that final awesome push, with the internet.

Like many mommy bloggers have before, she’s been documenting every detail of her first pregnancy; unlike any of them, she’s been sharing the highs and lows with more than 900 Watch Lynsee Grow! readers at the Twin Cities’ Moms Like Me website, which will broadcast the birth from the hospital as it happens. Only Moms Like Me members will be able to leave comments during the event, though anyone with an internet connection will be able to watch the live feed.

“We wanted to document the pregnancy and create a one-of-a-kind memento for our baby to have forever,” Lynsee told the website's partner KARE-TV 11, which is also following her pregnancy (she requested that I not publish her last name, for privacy reasons). "You'll be at some of the doctor's appointments... You'll be there in the delivery room, tastefully, but you will be there.’’

Fresh off of the Balloon Boy saga, one may wonder whether Lynsee or her 24-year-old husband, Anders, is in it for fame or fortune -- or reality TV. But they're not. Though there are a few corporate sponsors on board and KARE-TV helped throw her a baby shower at the famed Mall of America, all gifts were donated to charity and Lynsee is not being compensated for her participation in the project, according to Twin Cities Moms Like Me site manager Cindy Chapman.

Moms Like Me representatives say that the goal of the project was to get more members to share and interact on the site. Many members are fans of A Baby Story on TLC, Chapman says, and she was hoping to take the concept a step further. "We have the perfect vehicle on the internet with taking the birth live -- something A Baby Story doesn’t do." She sent a private message out to the members of the Twin Cities' site, asking if there were any pregnant women who were interested in participating. Lynsee was one of about 12 who responded. “I emailed her right away and she filled me in on the project,” Lynsee told me. “I talked with my husband and we were excited about it!”

Of course, you can't log off when you're the one in labor. And you certainly can't script a birth. Viewers won’t see any graphic details -- an experienced camera crew will be at the helm, Chapman says, and a team of people will be monitoring the shoot as well as the online chat. Chapman, who will be at the hospital with Lynsee, says that there is a "massive crisis plan" in place.

In October, MomsLikeMe.com asked their members for their thoughts on the couple's decision to share their child's birth with the world. About 60 percent of moms said that they do not want anyone besides their significant other in the delivery room but, in another poll, the same percentage responded that they would be interested in watching a broadcast of a live birth. "You never know when you start projects like this, how they’re going to go,” Chapman says. "The response has been overwhelming, very supportive, very positive for Lynsee."

I’m sure that every parent reading this right now is having a mini-flashback to their first birth experience -- I know I am -- and wondering how they'd cope with having a camera crew in the room. But that’s not how Lynsee, a family and consumer science teacher, sees the project. “It’s so miraculous and special because each birth is different. If I were in a classroom, I would be teaching about childhood development, so I feel that I’m using myself as a textbook to teach others about pregnancy and delivery."

"I will also have all the support from the mom’s on the site while I’m having the baby. Just knowing they are there during labor means a lot to me," she adds.

As the big day approaches -- she’s due Nov. 19 -- Lynsee says she’s not having any second thoughts about broadcasting the labor and delivery live. “No – it’s the final part of the journey,” she says. “It’s the one big moment and the special part and it’s what I’m looking forward to sharing with everyone the most.”

SRK gets moon on birthday

Every year on his birthday, an ardent Shah Rukh Khan fan buys a piece of the moon (you heard that right!) and sends it to him.

SRK confirms, "Yes, an Australian lady buys a little land on the moon for me every year on my birthday. She has been buying it for a while now and I get these certificates from the Lunar Republic Society."

SRK adds that he has met his fan and she keeps in touch with him all year through mails, "She writes me colourful emails (in the sense one line is red, one is blue and so on). I feel blessed to have the love of so many people worldwide."

According to one online lunar real estate agency, http://www.lunarregistry.com/, the Sea of Tranquility is the most sought-after address on the moon. 1 acre (approximately 43,560 sq ft, or 4,047 sq mtrs) costs US $37.50 (Rs 1758.75) and the actor owns several acres there. An ownership package includes a beautifully engraved parchment deed, a satellite photograph of the property and an information sheet detailing the geography of your region. An interactive Full Moon Atlas on CD-ROM is available at an additional cost.

You are allowed to purchase up to 40 acres per transaction. The proceeds from the purchase of the plot on the moon, go toward the Lunar Republic Society's program for privatised human-based exploration, settlement and development of the Moon.

Now while there are many websites on the internet (based in the US, UK and Russia) that allows you to buy land on the moon, it doesn't mean you can charge NASA or other space agencies for trespassing when they land on your property.

Property ownership is permanently registered by the International Lunar Lands Registry in its annual publication, which is copyrighted and deposited in the United States Library of Congress and with international patent and trademark offices, including the United Kingdom (UK Patent Office), Japan (Japan Copyright Office), Russia (Rospatent) and with the United Nations (UN Depository Library), in compliance with the Berne Convention.
