    When most people think about music from the 1950s, they might recall songs like the ones heard on Happy Days or American Graffiti — “Rock Around the Clock,” “The Great Pretender,” “Yakety Yak,” and other tunes that bring to mind sock hops, soda fountains, and drive-ins. But before these more innocuous songs would grace integrated radio in the late-1950s, early-50s African-American R&B took quite a few liberties with song content, and double entendres ruled the day. As a result, there are a number of songs from the period that are surprisingly suggestive, given the state of American music in the...

    President Obama pushed back on criticism of his recent appearance with comedian Zach Galifianakis to promote the Affordable Care Act, noting that President Lincoln "loved telling the occasional bawdy joke." The president´s remarks, during an interview with ESPN Radio´s Colin Cowherd that aired Thursday, were an indirect jab at Fox News host Bill O´Reilly, who argued during a segment of his show earlier this month that the 16th president would never have agreed to such an appearance. "First of all, if you read back on Lincoln, he loved telling the occasional bawdy joke and being out among regular folks," Obama

    Vanity Fair’s attacked conservative men with its latest political satire: a soft-core pornographic, borderline homosexual and obviously photoshopped “Official 2010-2011 Republican Beefcake Calendar.” Humorous perhaps, but also an attack on those candidates and certainly not the magazine’s first jab at Republicans and conservatives.

    Remember Carrie Prejean? She was the Miss USA contestant last year who was attacked first for her views on gay marriage and then again weeks later for a series of sexy photos that were deemed so racy, they almost cost the reigning Miss California her crown. Well, times sure have changed at Miss USA under the tutelage of its owner, real estate tycoon and media personality Donald Trump. Last week, the 51 Miss USA hopefuls convened in Las Vegas and shot their official contestant photos with photographer Fadil Berisha. Miss Virginia and Miss Kansas are even braless, donning only open...

    It’s one of the iron rules of politics – you have more to fear from your friends than from you enemies. Senator Barack Obama’s supporter, Jesse Jackson, seemingly threatened him bodily harm this week. Senator John McCain’s pal and economic adviser, Phil Gramm, went all “mental” on him a day later. Then, last night in Chicago, a longtime friend and supporter of Mr. Obama, the comedian Bernie Mac, “entertained” an Obama fundraiser crowd with a humor routine touching on menopause, prostitution and black family relations. By the time he was wrapping up his remarks, some in the crowd had turned...

    Some may call it exploiting racial tensions. CBS calls it darn good television. Jeff Probst popped in on The Early Show Wednesday morning, confirming the reports that the 20 castaways for Survivor: Cook Islands will be grouped by race, with competitors divided into four tribes consisting of whites, blacks, Asians and Hispanics. Apparently, "separate but equal" holds only the warmest of connotations for Mark Burnett. Like a good host, Probst had nothing but praise for the producers' controversial brainchild, calling the exercise in segregation a valuable social experiment, rather than a stunt to dig up some controversy--and raise ratings. "The...
  • Apple iPod Ads (Czech Republic): Too Racy for the USA

    Apple iPod Ads: Too Racy for the USA Sometimes living in the United States is downright oppressive. The terrorists want our whole society to vanish, and the advertisements are dumbed down and scrubbed clean for the sake of a few highly vocal prudes. Not so in the Czech Republic, where the copy accompanying this iPod advertisement reads, "iPod, the best 'partner' for this year." Or maybe it reads, "iPod, better than sex this year." Accurate translations are invited and welcome. And now we'll probably get complaints for showing this ad here at Gizmodo. We're betting none of those whiners will...

    MIAMI (AP) - Authorities in Florida are sending convicted sex offenders to jail for violating the terms of their probation by having men's magazines such as Maxim. Andrew Calderon, 23, was jailed for six days before a judge ordered his release after officers found a racy poster and calendar and copies of Maxim in his home earlier this year. A judge will decide next month whether Calderon's probation should be revoked or extended and whether the materials were innocent. Corrections officials said Calderon, who was on probation for the sexual battery of a mentally disabled relative, committed a violation by...

    Here's the deal: For $10 -- and it's going to good causes -- you can paw over 12 pages of Stanford frosh revealed in bare flesh. Or, you can have a first-ever raffled-off personal performance by the Stanford band, known for its inclination to do just about anything while musically marching. Completely clothed, of course.

    UN threatens authors of 'racy' exposé By Charles Laurence in New York (Filed: 02/05/2004) The United Nations has threatened to fire two officials who wrote an expose of sleaze and corruption during its peacekeeping missions of the 1990s. Kofi Annan, the UN Secretary-General, is understood to have favoured an attempt to block publication of the memoir, Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures, a True Story from Hell on Earth, due to be published next month. Still reeling from the Iraqi oil-for-food scandal, officials in the upper echelons of the UN are alarmed by the promised revelations of wild sex parties,...
