    While the United Kingdom's National Health Service spends more than £50 million per year subsidizing breast augmentation surgeries it refuses to pay for a drug that can help extend the survival time for cancer patients. A stark contrast between the cases of Josie Cunningham and Reece Hawley has raised eyebrows. The buxom Ms. Cunningham's breast enlargement was funded by the NHS back in 2009. She currently is selling pay-per-view tickets at £10,000 a pop to see her giving birth later this month. Reece Hawley is a trainee teacher. NHS spokesman Howard Titman attempted to explain the seemingly anomalous treatment of...

    Dr. Michael Niccole takes pride in his profession and the spoils of his work can be seen in his children. The Orange County plastic surgeon has operated on his adopted 25-year-old daughters multiple times over the years, according to a video by Barcroft Media. Daughter Brittani says in the video her first surgery was breast augmentation after she finished high school at 18. Then she got a nose job right before her 21st birthday and started Botox injections at the age of 22. Meanwhile, her sister Charm got her navel changed from an outie to an innie when she was...

    It's hard to single out the worst part of Titstare, a "joke" app presented Sunday at TechCrunch's Disrupt 2013 startup conference hackathon. Everything about it the name, the concept, the presentation, the context is just jaw-droppingly "no." And yet, it just happened on a stage, before an audience that, from the video, sounded at least somewhat receptive to it. Titstare, from Australians Jethro Batts and David Boulton, was the first presentation of the day. As Boulton explains in the presentation, their product, which was meant as a joke, "is an app where you take photos of yourself, staring...

    With all the talk nowadays regarding  Conservative "War on Women", I got to thinking. Is there really a war? What started it? It’s a fairly recent issue, I can’t recall it coming up prior to this election cycle.Is it just another reference for Feminist Movement? Can’t be that, they burned their bras years ago and eventually got most of what they wanted.Women can vote now, though I suspect a large portion of the female population has no idea what Women’s Suffrage is. Oops, I should include males in that group as well.We have women representation in public office throughout the...

    A waitress who works on a Baltic Sea ferry is suing her employers after they refused to give her sick pay while she was recovering from cosmetic breast surgery. The waitress, who was born in 1981, took two weeks off from work last autumn to recover from the operation, which she admits was not for medical reasons. When the ferry company, Viking Line, found out why she had taken sick leave, bosses refused to give her sick pay and docked the time from her holiday allowance. Now, union bosses are taking Viking Line to the labour court. Documents submitted to...

    Sarah Palin says, “I can’t believe we’re talking about this,” but let’s put this in perspective. With bloggers climbing into her uterus for almost two years, having the media and bloggers latching onto a couple of breasts seems almost tame by comparison.  The Right Scoop has the video of Greta Van Susteren going there with Governor Palin, who displays equal parts amusement and disgust with the meme du semaine. Once again, the national media reduces a strong woman in politics to her bust size: People Magazine picks this up, naturally, and notes that the scrutiny of her chest makes Palin...

Iren wants 82,500 from the Swiss airline - flying her from Moscow to Zurich - to replace both 9kg implants. Lawyer Sergei Zhorin added: "The space between the seats was too tight for her breasts."

    Hey Sarah Palin, I can see your cleavage from my house! Alaskas former governor sported more Northern Exposure than usual at the Belmont Stakes race this weekend, sending the blogosphere into a tizzy, wondering whether Palin is exercising a womans right to (bigger) boobs. Palin and her husband, Todd, were in New York on Sunday to bet on their pick, First Dude, named after Palins husband. But it was Palins newfound perkiness, not her politics, that bumped Heidi Montag and implants off the Most Googled list.

Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader, ignited controversy last week by linking tremors to the behavior of women. "Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Iranian media quoted Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi as saying.

Outspoken "Avatar" star Weaver said she believed Cameron -- who lost out to his ex-wife, "The Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow -- didn't win because the academy wanted to make history by naming its first ever female Best Director.

Honestly, why? I guess it has something to do with the X chromosome. "What is the function of the male nipple? Maybe we all start as androgynous creatures and then they become men?"

Auckland City Council had sought a court injunction to stop the "Boobs on Bikes" parade, scheduled for Wednesday, saying it breached a bylaw banning offensive public events. But Judge Nicola Mathers said while opponents may find the parade offensive or tasteless, the fact that 80,000 people had gathered for a similar event last year meant a significant number of people did not agree with the critics, New Zealand Press Association said.

He has categorised breast types according to fruits and says men can draw up their own horoscope-type chart that indicates what a woman's chest size says about her. The fruity chart starts naturally with the traditional melon. According to Lorenzoni, a woman with large, round breasts like a melon may appear motherly, but is far from...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - In response to numerous complaints from women, the government has ordered airport security personnel to avoid touching female passengers between their breasts when performing patdowns. Security screeners now will keep their hands to the ``chest perimeter'' of women unless detection equipment picks up the possibility that they are hiding explosives between their breasts. The new method takes into consideration passenger discomfort while remaining steadfast in mitigating risks, said Transportation Security Administration spokesman Mark Hatfield. The nation's 45,000 screeners are being told to pat down the perimeter of the chest, backsides and abdomen, effective Thursday. TSA has made...

    BEIJING Love your liposuction. Tout that tummy tuck. Flaunt the fake nose. Organizers of a new beauty pageant here believe artificial breasts and surgically sculpted butts not only shouldn't be hidden away, they're something to brag about. Welcome to the brave new China, which is making history with what it claims is the world's first Miss Plastic Surgery contest. "Naturals," with their God-given, pain-free looks, have no place here. This stage belongs to those who have suffered for their beauty and now live beyond the cutting edge. All nationalities are welcome, but contestants must show a doctor's certificate at...

    A judge ruled a 19-year-old Tuscaloosa woman who revealed her breasts in a "Girls Gone Wild" video must give her name to those she sued over the video, but does not have to disclose it publicly. Circuit Judge Steve Wilson partially sealed the case Thursday, keeping the 19-year-old's identity from being made public. The woman, along with two others, filed suit in March claiming a "Girls Gone Wild" film crew persuaded them to expose their breasts when they were 17 years old and not of legal age. The other two dropped out of the case for fear of having their...

    CANNES, France (AFP) - Alexandra Kerry, 30-year-old daughter of US Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites), walked up Cannes' celebrated red-carpet for the premiere of Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill 2" wearing an off-shoulder black number that turned transparent under the flashes. Kerry, who is showing a short film at the festival, was tailed by the press during her stay at Cannes but French newspapers reported that her staff had warned journalists off questions concerning her famous father. Her film entitled "The Last Full Measure" is being presented in the Short Film Corner section and describes the ravage...

    Doctors may have found a way to use a combination of a woman's own fat and stem cells to make a natural breast implant, say Japanese researchers. It is hoped that the method could prove an alternative to artificial implants filled with salt water or silicone. Previous attempts to increase breast size with fat have failed because some of the tissue dies, forming hard lumps. Adding stem cells could coax the growth of new blood vessels, say experts from the University of Tokyo. The patient's fat reserves are often raided by cosmetic surgeons to provide raw material to smooth out...
