Two Denver TSA Agents Fired For Conspiring To Feel Up Good Looking Passengers

Two TSA agents posted at Denver International Airport have been fired after it was discovered that they had worked out a scheme allowing one of the agents to grope unsuspecting male passengers as they passed through security checkpoints. TSA authorities were first alerted to the situation earlier this year thanks to an anonymous tip. An investigation of the two agents revealed that a clever--though troubling--system where the male agent would identify male passengers he found attractive at which point his female accomplice would flag them to be pulled aside for pat-down inspections.

During its investigation of the pair, TSA officials observed the male agent patting down unwitting passengers’ groins and buttocks with his bare hands, which is strictly forbidden according to TSA regulations. Both of the agents, whose names have not been released to the public, have been fired from their jobs. According to a third TSA employee from the same airport, however, their “game” wasn’t exactly a well kept secret.

“There was more people that knew it was going on,” another employee, who asked to remain anonymous, explained to a local CBS affiliate. “They made it seem like a game, they were having fun with it…I had heard them saying it was just a game. It’s a really sick game to play.”

The female agent who confessed to her participation in the scheme admitted to having lure at least ten passengers into the ploy.

"These alleged acts are egregious and intolerable," TSA officials asserted in a public statement. "TSA has removed two officers from the agency."

While it’s been established that numerous passengers were knowingly groped by TSA employees, the Denver District Attorney’s office finds itself in an interesting position regarding what to do with them. As it stands now none of the men who were touched have come forward expressing any concerns. It’s unclear whether any of the men knew what was being done to them. The one man that the TSA investigation observed being touched hasn’t reached out to the TSA and so the organization isn’t technically able to file any type of charges.


Zac Efron And Dave Franco Get A Hefty Handful Of Each Other At The 2015 MTV Movie Awards: WATCH

Efron

The 'brotastic' stars of Neighbors Zac Efron and Dave Franco accepted the award for Best Duo at this year’s MTV Movie Awards and got into some homo-erotic antics on stage, with Franco and Efron grabbing at each others crotches reports mtv.com.

Zefron appeared on stage-dressed in character, with Franco dressed as Robert De Niro’s character from Meet The Parents and Efron dressed in De Niro's Taxi outfit. Franco quoted De Niro’s nipple joke from the former film while opening Efron’s jacket revealing his well-defined body underneath, prompting Efron to grab a rather hefty handful of Franco’s crotch. Franco returned the favor as the presenters, the new leads in new Fantastic Four film, awkwardly looked on.

A Smarter Take On Sex Could Have Saved 'Looking'

Looking1

It’s been about 10 years since the (American) Queer as Folk, The L Word, and Noah’s Arc all went off the air. Looking, for many people, promised to be a return to that world of prestige gay drama(dy) where queer characters weren’t just tertiary window dressing, they were people

Then Looking aired, and it was exactly HBO had said it would be: A show about a group of fairly regular (if upper middle-class) people living their lives in San Francisco beneath the blue haze of some fabulous color correction. The sets were gorgeous, the men were moustachioed, and everything was lit wonderfully. Looking at Looking proved to be an easy enough task. Watching Looking, on the other hand, quickly bored the hell out of a lot of people.

The thing about Looking that we tend to pick up when we describe it as “listless” or “boring” is that it’s primarily a show about being an “authentic” gay person. Though we tend laud things described as “authentic” we often forget that actual authenticity runs the risk of coming with a sizable chunk of banality. Being gay, much like being straight, or bi, or cis, or queer, is an inherently mundane experience. 

Occasionally we may have affairs with our bosses or spend a weekend at Russian River, but generally speaking being gay is a rather uneventful. Looking captured that essence perfectly, but it didn’t make for very compelling television.

When people talk about what made Queer As Folk a hit series, they almost immediately bring up sex, and rightfully so. Where Looking was a languid daydream about chicken windows and WASPS, Queer As Folk was a manic circuit party fueled by camp, coke, and dizzying crash-zooms. 

Beneath the show’s debaucherous veneer, though, was a genuine effort to normalize depictions of authentic gay sex. The club Babylon served as a social focal point around which queer sex in all of its forms could be explored and unpacked for what they were: good, bad, pleasurable, scary, and sometimes dangerous. As perilous a storytelling device as “authenticity” can be, sex scenes like Queer as Folk’s were something new and provocative for American television. They proved that authenticity, when handled appropriately, could be both familiar and provocative enough to capture an audience.

Looking was not without its fair share of scenes, but it never quite figured out how to use queer sex as the powerful storytelling tool that it can be. As is often the case with shows about gay men, Looking decided to stick with milquetoast sex scenes that acknowledged the fact that gay men lust for one another, but did little to explore the concept. 

Sure, Patrick went cruising and had sex in the woods, but to what end?  How had he heard about it? Had he been before or was it just a fluke? Stigmatized though they may be, cruising areas and the culture that’s evolved around them are a fascinating and integral part of where today’s gay community comes from. Looking explored none of that. 

There are few things that nearly every gay man has in common with his brethren other than sex. While we rightfully bristle at being reduced down to our sexual desires, it would be odd to ignore that sexual physicality--in whatever form it may take--is something that nearly all of us have experience with an can relate to. For a show that wanted to be a glimpse into the life of we, the Gays, Looking didn’t thoroughly engage with the current state of sex within the gay male population.

YouTube couples RJ and Will, and Trent and Luke along with other gay YouTube personalities sat down for a riveting read of the lewd, and often hilarious, messages men send to each other on Grindr.

The messages they read run the gamut of everything from one user telling another user that they must ask their mother for permission to have sex first, to one user describing how his time spent in jail with tough men led him to "switch sides."

Adam Lambert Teases Followers With Instagram Snippet of New Single 'Ghost Town' - LISTEN

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 11.33.30 AM

Adam Lambert debuted a snippet of his new single "Ghost Town" from his upcoming third album The Original High, due out later this year, on his Instagram today. Lambert revealed to Billboard that the house-style track will arrive on April 21 and that his new album will be his first with Warner Bros. Records. Lambert spoke about his album with Billboard in January stating that the album is a surprising new direction for him.

Said Lambert:

"I think people are going to be really surprised. The album feels like a new era for me - emotionally, lyrically, sonically. It feels fresh, it feels new. It's still me. It's still stuff that fans know and love but it's a new chapter 100 percent."

Producers Max Martin and Shellback are executive producers behind The Original High. Lambert's sophomore album Trespassing topped the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2012, but Lambert later split from RCA Records and toured the world with Queen.

Attention Cut Guys: Foreskin Regeneration Therapy Might Be On Its Way - VIDEO

Occupy foreskin

Though the vast majority of guys born in the U.S. are circumcised, there is a vocal contingent of men who strongly believe that those living without foreskins are missing out. More than mere fetishists who find uncut men more sexually appealing, many foreskin enthusiasts assert that circumcision can have detrimental impacts on the physical and psychological health.

Foregen, a non-profit organization operating out of Rome, Italy, is becoming one of the largest advocates for the future of restorative treatments designed to help men recover some of their lost sexual tissue. To be clear Foregen is not offering any particular procedures, therapies, or drugs that can instantaneously regenerate a man’s foreskin.

Rather, the company is working to shed light on the broader field of regenerative therapies, albeit with a specific focus on foreskin. At present Foregen, which also operates here in the U.S. has raised about $100,00 from private investors and has plans to crowdsource additional funding.

According to Foregen’s website “the demand for a cure for circumcision is overwhelming.”

“The body part that is in highest demand for regenerative purposes in the US is the kidney. About 100,000 people are on the waiting list for one. There are approximately 1,000 times as many men (100 million) who are in need of an intact penis in the US alone!”

Foregen also claims that by spearheading the menace of circumcision, development into the broader field of human regeneration with be spurred.

“The premise behind Foregen is that if we are regenerating entire body parts from more complex body parts, why not apply this to the only body part that hundreds of millions of boys are missing,” Eric Clopper, a Foregen rep explained to Motherboard.

Those in favor of foreskins agitating for circumcision solutions often point out valid point that the natural flesh fundamentally changes a penis’s structure just by virtue of covering the glans and being packed with thousands of nerve endings. But, as Arikia Millikan explains for Motherboard, quantitative studies into the actual experience of having a foreskin vs. not and have been dubious in the past:

“A 2015 paper by Jacobs and Arora claims that foreskin has basically no effec​t on sexuality, but it cites likely biased sources connected with Brian Morris, and, as Earp points out in a critique​ published in the American Journal of Bioethics, the research they cite relies mainly on a pair of clinical trials that were carried out—not on infants—but on adult men who were voluntarily circumcised.”

What do you think? Is Foregen’s cause worthwhile one? Sound-off in the comments.
