Siberian snowboarders strip for cameras

Snowboarder /Europics

Tourism chiefs in Siberia persuaded snowboarders to brave the region’s notoriously bitter winter weather in hotpants and bikini tops.

It was for a promotional film designed to encourage skiers and snowboarders to the region’s Sheregesh resort.

Siberia is on a drive to draw more tourists away from Moscow to visit the country’s frozen east, where temperatures dip to minus 30 degrees Celsius in winter.

They also hope to entice adventurous winter sports enthusiasts away from more traditional resorts in the Alps.

“We are quite remote but we’re up and coming,” said a tourist board spokesman.

“We can’t guarantee a show like this every day but we’re pretty relaxed out here in Siberia.

“And we have the best snowboarding powder anywhere in Europe.”

Locals also plan to open a Yeti theme park this year to cash in on frequent sightings of the mythical beast in the area.

Sheregesh deputy mayor Igor Idimeshev, 48, said: “Now, if the girls can tempt out some ski-ing Yetis, then we really will be in business.”

‘Female’ romance author Jessica Blair unmasked as 89-year-old grandfather

In the past, female writers such as Charlotte Bronte had to adopt male pen names in order to get their books published. But the tables were turned for former war hero Bill Spence after he wrote a series of romance novels.

The grandfather from Ampleforth, North Yorkshire, was told his books would need to be printed under a feminine moniker if he wanted them to sell – and so his pseudonym Jessica Blair was born.

Bill, 89, has so far written 22 romance novels under the female pen name since his first was published in 1993, with his latest, Silence of the Snow, due out this week. 

Meet Jessica Blair: The author of 22 romantic novels is actually Bill Spence

 And far from feeling his masculinity had been questioned, Bill said he was delighted when a publisher suggested his books carry the name of a woman.

Why one Man Refuses to Sit: Standing up to Pee “A Matter of Honor”

pee sitting down

No matter how much you love someone, once you start living with them minor irritations are bound to come to the surface. The object of your affections – that perfect specimen of a human being whose every movement used to be cute, sexy or endearing in some way – suddenly becomes just another person with flaws of their own. Perhaps they slurp their coffee too loudly. Maybe they have a habit of leaving hair in the plug-hole or not changing the toilet roll when the old one is finished. These minor issues are the kind of thing that we only come to notice after the initial “honeymoon” dating period when we were always dressed to impress and only have to keep our bad habits in check for the duration of a single evening at a time.

In a recent story about marital relations, Japanese website News Post Seven heard from both relationships experts and a number of married women who were distinctly irked by their husbands’ bad habits. While issues such as of a general lack of help with the housework or cooking frequently cropped up as the cause of arguments and unhappiness, one of the most common complaints made was of husbands making as mess while peeing. Told to take a seat while draining his spuds, however, one Japanese man was seemingly morally offended by the mere suggestion, stating that to pee standing up is “a matter of honour”.

Call for pants on Michaelangelo’s David

Pants /PA

The residents of a Japanese town have asked for a replica of Michelangelo’s David to be fitted with underpants.

The 16ft statue was erected in a park in Okuizumo where it towered over people visiting nearby sports facilities.

But it is also close to a children’s play area, which prompted residents to object to the Renaissance statue’s nudity.

“It’s frightening the children and worrying the adults with its nakedness,” said an official in the small mountainside town.

“Several people have asked us to cover it up with underpants.”

The statue, along with a replica of the ‘topless’ Venus de Milo, was presented to the town by a local businessman.

Local officials said they hoped that residents would in time come to appreciate the value of the sculptures, reports the Yomiuri Shimbun.

Town official Yoji Morinaga said: “They are statues of unclothed humans, and such pieces of art work are very rare in our area.

“It’s the first time we have had anything like this in our town. Perhaps people were perplexed.”

Gran, 61, takes up pole dancing

Sun Fengqin /Europics

A 61-year-old grandmother has become massive hit in China – as the country’s oldest pole dancer.

Sun Fengqin took up the raunchy hobby after looking for a new type of exercise when she got bored with tai chi.

Now millions of viewers have watched the gran-of-four grind through her gyrating routines either on TV or online.

“I can never say no to an audience because I love pole dancing and I love being on a stage,” said Sun at her home in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, eastern China.

But she says some friends and family have shunned her because of pole dancing’s association with China’s sex industry.

“A friend I had known for 20 years told me I wasn’t welcome any more because I might corrupt her children,” explained Sun.

Her long suffering husband Cui added: “I can’t say I am 100 per cent happy and I’d rather she did yoga, but I will always support her.”

Pants calendar is an unlikely success

Calendar /Europics

A bizarre calendar of men posing in their underpants with classic 1970s cars is proving an unlikely success in Germany.

The pictures – featuring male models of all shapes and sizes – show some classic bodywork has aged better than others.

One bearded model poses in a pair of baggy brown Y-fronts, holding a chainsaw, as he stands beside a classic Audi quattro.

Another model in the £25 calendar is seen posing proudly in front of a Volvo Amazon while wearing skin-tight leopard-skin print trunks.

Creator Janet Schurmeyer, from Wuppertal, says she and a photographer pal dreamed up the calender as an antidote to traditional poses of semi-clad women draped over curvy sports cars.

“We only use men – most of them are our friends – and they are often not wearing the most attractive underwear, whatever it is they feel comfortable in” she explained.

“I’d say it’s about equal with men and women buying them. It is not a question of sex – it’s more about a person’s sense of humour,” she added.

The pair say it’s selling well online – and they have even sold some to garages where mechanics have hung it alongside the regular girlie pin up calenders.

She added: “There are girl mechanics now as well – so why shouldn’t they have something for the wall as well?

“There is a minimum age of 20 years for the cars. For the men it is 18,” she added.

Treat Your Loved One’s Penis to Something Special this Christmas with Hand-Delivered Tenga

c7ccb806c13da3312d738b9ca3e44d7d

Tenga is a Japanese brand of stylish male sex toys made by a company of the same name. As sleek as Tenga products look, however, most people aren’t going to line their collection up on their bookshelf. Even if it’s common sense that practically everyone masturbates, it’s still embarrassing to have other people stumble upon evidence of your alone time.

And that’s the beauty of Tenga Express, a limited-time service where you can have a cute Japanese university girl hand-deliver a Tenaga masturbation aid. What better way to show someone you care than by sending a complete stranger to their home to implicitly say, “Hey, I know what you do at home, and I support that.”

Male gay fish behaviour found to turn on female fish

German scientists say they have found a tropical male fish that becomes more attractive to females when it displays same-sex behaviour.

Their research has shown the female Atlantic molly prefer mating partners whom they saw having sex with other males.

The University of Frankfurt study concludes that male fish can therefore increase their attractiveness towards females by displaying same-sex behaviour and thereby improve their chances of future heterosexual mating.

David Bierbach, of the University of Frankfurt, and colleagues said this new mechanism might explain the occurrence and persistence of homosexuality also in other animal species.

The researchers said: “Male homosexual behaviour – although found across the animal kingdom – remains a conundrum, as same-sex mating should decrease male reproductive fitness.

“In most species, however, males that engage in same-sex sexual behaviour also mate with females, and in theory, same-sex mating could even increase male reproductive fitness if males improve their chances of future heterosexual mating.

Get Laid, Get Paid: Japanese Adult Video Company Recruiting Sex Industry Reviewers

soft on demand

Soft on Demand, the Japanese adult video producer and manufacturer of condoms, sex toys and cheeky underpants, has made the dreams of thousands of men come true this week by announcing that it is searching for men to sample “soap land”, “health” and sex parlours across the country, with the money spent during each visit refunded in full.

The catch? Visitors to these red light establishments must write a full, detailed review of their experience that will become part of Soft on Demand’s sex industry survey, which aims to stamp out shady (well, shadier) venues and provide men looking for a place to get their rocks off with a detailed database to study before heading out for some fun. A Trip Advisor of hanky panky, if you will.

After the company made the announcement via its official Twitter feed, many wondered whether Soft on Demand were merely playing a prank on us easily excitable men. A quick trip to the company’s official website, however, reveals that they’re deadly serious.

Ooh. La. La.

 The Japanese sex industry is one of the world’s largest, with pretty much any fetish that the human mind can envisage catered for. Groping women dressed as schoolgirls in a room designed to look like the inside of a train? No problem. Having your face sat on by a woman twice your size? Sure. Being bathed and massaged by a girl (literally by a girl- they clamber all over you and use their entire body) slathered with green gel? Come on; you’re not even trying to be creative!

Sunny side up

Beach CEN

It might be snowing outside but life is a beach for these models hired to promote the warm weather at Sanya Island in southern China to people living in the cold north of the country.

Tourism agents decided to try something different after finding that most people ignored posters of people sunning themselves on the beaches that represented the warm climate of the island.

So they converted a bus to give it giant glass sides and then hired models wearing swimwear to lounge around inside.

The bus then drove around Shenyang where temperatures were minus 5 inspiring people to think about joining in by travelling south to enjoy the warm weather.

Travel agent Lin Hu said: “We had double the normal number of bookings once the bus started travelling around – we are going to keep the fake beach project running all through winter and maybe take it to other cities.

“Seeing somebody enjoying summer even if it’s a fake summer in a bus remind people what they’re missing.”
