Headline: I’M SO DESPERATE FOR A BABY I GRAB STRANGERS FOR SEX ON NIGHTS WHEN I AM MOST FERTILE
Key quote: “If Lara, 25, meets a man who wants to use a condom, she will offer one from her purse – which she has already pierced a hole in.”
Editor’s note: I know what you’re thinking, and I agree — The Sperm Hunter would make an AMAZING reality show. Twelve women compete for the sperm and STDs of random men in bars with weapons such as broken condoms and beer goggles…hosted by field expert Paris Hilton!

Some people may call her loose. I call her a hero. Or at least more energetic than myself…
Meet 62-year-old grandmother of seven, Carol Bone — yes, BONE — who is bragging to Closer magazine that she has slept with more than 200 men after joining 13 dating sites in the past two years.
Hey, with a namesake like that, I can’t say her, um, appetite is surprising!
Despite suffering from arthritis and back pain, Ms. Bone says she prefers sleeping with the youngin’s; her favorite men are in their 30s or 40s because “men who are over 50 don’t have the stamina to keep up with me. And I don’t like beer bellies.”
Well, beer bellies have been known to afflict more than a few men in their 30s or 40s, as well. But I hear ya, Ms. Bone. No granny should have to put up with that flabby nonsense.
Twice-married Bone began her on-line dating adventures in 2008 when the relationship with her partner ended after 21 years.
“‘I’d bake, look after the grandchildren, and I even tried knitting jumpers, but that wasn’t for me,” she revealed.
So… she made the natural leap from knitting jumpers to bed-hopping.
“My age means nothing. I have a really high sex drive.” She added, “Why shouldn’t I enjoy myself?”
Somewhere her grandchildren are reading the article and asking their parents, “What is a ‘high sex drive’?” Answer: Something your parents won’t have the energy for until you graduate from college.

That’s right, in today’s episode of I Didn’t Know I Was NOT pregnant…
An irate woman who stripped outside a Wisconsin bar claiming she was about to give birth was, in fact, not pregnant, authorities said.
Alcohol was involved, I suspect. (Can’t get anything by Detective Candy!)
Kyla Brumley, 28, was on her back on the sidewalk — naked from the waist down — when police arrived. Brumley refused to answer questions from police, instead yelling, “Get it out,” and referencing pain in her genital area. She continued to roll around on the ground as others tried to cover her.
Officers, observing no evidence Brumley was pregnant or in labor (Ed. Note: Say what?! I thought rolling around on the ground was the universal sign of labor!), handcuffed her and took her to an area hospital, where staffers confirmed she was not pregnant. At the hospital Brumley continued to yell, physically lash out at those around her and refuse attempts to cover her lower half.
I can’t help but wonder if Goldschläger was involved. That stuff will do crazy things to you. Yes, even impregnate you with an invisible baby! True story.

This is a little mind-boggling: A healthy baby boy was born in Virgina from an embryo cryopreserved for 20 years. That’s right — the embryo is older than Miley Cyrus. (And the baby boy is wishing they’d waited another 20 years so he could have bypassed the Cyrus family craze altogether.)
You see, in 1990 a couple underwent In Vitro Fertilization. They eventually had a healthy baby boy. They also, as is common, had a number of microscopic embryos that hadn’t been implanted, but were viable. They decided to anonymously donate them. Now, one of those embryos has produced a little boy, 20 years after being created. This May, a 42-year-old woman gave birth to that boy, as reported in the journal Fertility and Sterility.
However, the situation is raising questions (of course) among bioethicists concerning “leftover” life forms frozen in liquid nitrogen.
Bioethicist Arthur Caplan at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, who has written about IVF issues, wonders if embryos might be handed down generation to generation, if there could be accidental inbreeding (I could make another Cyrus family joke here, but I AM ABOVE THAT) among adopted-out embryos, and whether the two boys have rights if they want to meet one day.
Meanwhile, I had another deep thought: If things frozen for that long can come to life after all those years, there is hope for Nicole Kidman’s forehead yet!
