  • Yikes, Dead Ringers in real life: Identical twin brothers have been arrested by police in Marseille, France, investigating a series of sexual assaults in the past 15 months. But the investigators have no idea which of the two brothers may be guilty, as the victims are unable to tell them apart. Footage from closed-circuit cameras is unhelpful. Even standard DNA tests would prove inconclusive – the DNA of genuine twins is indistinguishable, except through experimental techniques which are costly and may not be accepted by a court.

  • “You’ve read Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James and now you’re keen to see a good porn movie that offers erotic BDSM. Preferably with a female submissive and a hot guy. Here’s a few films to get you started along with some instructional videos…” Also: I *so* very much want to see 50 Shades of Dylan Ryan, wow…

  • I hope that New York Daily News and TLC stay this classy forever and ever – they do love the coffee enema couple: “Mike and Trina confess to spending as many as five hours a day with their buckets of fresh-brewed joe. They each down an average of 100 enemas a month. Says Trina, ‘It gives me a sense of euphoria.’”

  • For those who are all like, “Coffee enemas, FTW!” this is practical and somewhat fascinating: “Coffee enemas are nothing new, but a recent story about how one Florida couple became hooked on these enemas has cast a spotlight on this alternative health technique. Here’s what experts and scientific research says about the risks and benefits of coffee enemas.”

  • Paul Raymond was one of Britain’s richest men, building a fortune on his early recognition of the indisputable fact that sex sells. It was 1958 when he opened Raymond’s Revue Bar in London’s Soho district, operating it as a private club to bypass rules on public displays of nudity. His life story — one of success, excess and tragedy — is the subject of “The Look of Love,” an entertaining film biography by Michael Winterbottom showing in the Berlinale Special section of the Berlin Film Festival.

  • There are 13.7 million cancer survivors living in the United States; the American Cancer Society estimates there will be 18 million by 2022. Survivors face many long-term effects of treatment, from secondary cancers to cardiovascular problems to cognitive defects. But the debilitating effects on a patient’s sexuality are often ignored, said Sharon Bober, director of the sexual health program at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Bober’s program is one of a handful of sexuality-focused survivorship programs that have popped up at cancer centers around the country.

  • The proprietor of one of the sleaziest “revenge porn” websites has gone public in a big way. The 28-year-old Colorado Springs man who created the site IsAnybodyDown, Craig Brittain, has been featured in a report airing on Denver TV station CBS4. “We don’t want anyone shamed or hurt. We just want the pictures there for entertainment purposes and business,” said Brittain, who said he makes $3,000 per month off the site.

You write “Dead Ringers in real life”, so you’re probably unaware that the movie was based on a true story.
