If you have been to any fair, carnival or sporting event you have probably seen the most used form of body painting – face paint. Face painting dates back centuries where it was used for either camouflage while hunting, religious reasons or marking military units and membership.
Body painting comes from ancient tribal cultures who originally painted with clay and naturally found pigments for ceremonious acts. This original ancient art form still survives today amongst the indigenous people of Australia, the Pacific Island and parts of Africa.
Mehndi is used in India and the Middle east using dyes made from henna - generally used on brides for their wedding ceremony. Annatto, wet charcoal or huito is used to decorate the faces and body on the indigenous people of South America
From these ancient tribal forms and through different cultural variations no one has done it better than the Western society. Starting in the 1960’s with the liberalization of social norms regarding nudity women have been able to wear body paint with pride. It has been made popular with countless spreads from Playboy, Maxim, Sports Illustrated and just about any other magazine publication that is still around today.
Just imagine a time when women will be able to suit up in body paint to do her local grocery shopping, attend barbecues and whatever other activity they see fit. Of course we will have to come up with some type of regulatory board that gives the “Okay” on a case-by-case basis. We don’t want just any female to be able to do this. Men will also need the introduction of designer Super Soaker’s. Hell, we still have standards and need to accessorize correctly. Right?

Female celebrities have always turned to Hugh Hefner and his Playboy Magazine to help keep, or raise, their status with the rest of the world. Many of the aspiring models, actresses, reality stars and everyone else who has yet to reach the pinnacle of stardom has had no fear in exposing all their goods for the world to see (think the Kim Kardashian type).
However the A-lister who is trying to reignite their diminishing stardom has always been less willing to reveal all their nooks and crannies. After all – most had some type of dignity they were trying to keep in tact. So what happens when you have a failing A-lister with absolutely no dignity or self-respect that decides to pose for Playboy? You get the world excited and buzzing for that muff shot.
Lindsay Lohan is the perfect example of this situation happening. The world has been on their feet just waiting for the muff shot to be delivered in HD magazine quality. And why wouldn’t the world make the assumption that she was really going to bare all? She flashes her crotch constantly while going to parties. Lohan has already done the Marilyn Monroe topless recreation thing for New York Magazine. She has no self respect or dignity left.
But as the pictures were leaked on to the internet weeks before the magazine was set to release, Lindsay Lohan would disappoint us again. It appears Playboy has paid close to 1 million dollars to recreate a less classy, plainer, generic photo shoot of her New York Magazine spread. The biggest disappointment of it all? No pink taco was on the platter.
Playboy Magazine even went out of the way to remove all of her actual characteristics that would make this photo opportunity unique. Lindsay’s body is photoshopped and shaped beyond recognition. Her natural and unique hair color was turned blond (I bet you’ve never seen a blond in Playboy before), her dirty rat tattoos that gave her the hooker-next-door sexuality were covered up and even most of her freckles were brushed out. In essence, Playboy took a very sexual individual and turned her into the common boring model we are used to seeing in everyday spreads.
From a business standpoint I am very impressed Lindsay Lohan and her team for negotiating these terms. It’s not every day you can get someone to pay you 1 million dollars for pictures you already took for free.
All that being said - I am still going to go out and purchase the Lindsay Lohan Playboy issue. I want it nearby so I can have her sign it when she's begging on the street in 5 years.
As usual the Lindsay Lohan Playboy pictures attached are NSFW - so browse safely my friends.

Female athletes spend their entire life toning, training and making sure their bodies are in perfect shape to compete. The fallout and the benefit to men everywhere, is that they are making sure their bodies are in perfect shape for our viewing pleasure. After all – they have to know that’s the only reason we watch women’s sports anyways. Right? So without further rambling allow me to introduce you to some of the world’s sexiest female athletes:
Blair O’Neal is both a professional golfer and, not surprisingly, a professional model. This Scottsdale, Arizona hottie had the privilege of attending Arizona State University (and everyone knows what kind of girls come out of ASU) where she was captain of the golf team. The 5'10" blonde is represented by FORD Models and Sports Unlimited Talent who have presented her the opportunity to model on runways, print ads, catalogs, magazine covers, websites and commercial advertisements all over the U.S. and Asia.

Students in our school system are pursued, groped, seduced and raped by some of the most trusted people in their life – teachers. There are about 3 million teachers in the public school system and according to an AP investigation 2,570 educators’ credentials were revoked, denied, surrendered or sanctioned following allegations of sexual misconduct (2001-2005).
Now what’s most interesting about the situation is the severe double standard in the sentencing in male offenders in comparison to their female counterparts. As you will read in some of the summaries I post in this article a lot of them receive probation, light fines and/or removal of their teaching licenses. While there are numerous articles posted online about these specific statistics and the mentalities of the case/laws involved I am not going to post any of them here. If you are really interested just do a quick Google search and be prepared for hours of reading.
On a personal note I think that the cases I am showcasing (generally speaking) have some really, really, hot teachers involved. And maybe the people bringing the case or enforcing the laws realize that this situation is a fantasy come true for most young men once they hit puberty. Hell – I can’t think of one guy I know that didn’t want their super-hot teacher to give them a little “special attention” after class.
