Sexy New ‘Survivor’ Cast Includes Gay Couple And Legendary Homophobe

Sexy New ‘Survivor’ Cast Includes Gay Couple And Legendary Homophobe

By D. David Kinney

CBS unveiled the 18 new cast members for “Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water” on Wednesday. In addition to former Atlanta Braves baseball player (and  homophobe) John Rocker and “Amazing Race” twins Nadiya and Natalie Anderson, this season’s cast will also feature gay couple Reed Kelly and Josh Canfield.

Josh Canfield is 32 and is an actor, singer and writer. During a pre-interview with CBS he was asked what 3 items he would want to have with him on the island. He responded: “1) Bible – the Scripture would help in dealing with difficult circumstances 2) Piano – so that I could write songs and sing. 3) iPod – life without music is just depressing.” Interesting. 

Reed Kelly is from the Great White Way as well and the 31-year-old is a performer, model and aerialist. Just like his boyfriend, Reed was asked about what 3 items he would want to have on the island. He told them: “1) My Bible – because man cannot live by bread (or rice) alone. 2) My pillow – because it would be a super comfy piece of home and I perform better well rested. 3) A mirror – because sometimes as a dancer you have to be able to look at yourself in the eye and say “pull up and push through! You’re not actually that hungry.” I think this would work well for me as a Survivor castaway too.”

So they’re gay entertainers with a religious side. Where have we seen that recently on CBS? Oh, right…

We’ve seen gay contestants on “Survivor” before. There was even a gay couple during the original “Blood vs. Water” season last year, but that didn’t work out so well. Colton Cumbie and Caleb Bankston were fiancés from Alabama with something to prove. It was Colton’s second appearance on the show and he wanted to improve his image after quitting in a flood of tears the first time. Well… he quit in a flood of years (again) on day 7. His fiancé proved to be decidedly tougher and went on to become the 9th jury member being voted out by his tribe on day 30.

Will this be the year that the gay couple does well? We’ll have to wait and see. Let’s hope.

Laverne Cox Dances Like There Is No Tomorrow During Beyonce’s VMAs Performance

Laverne Cox Dances Like There Is No Tomorrow During Beyonce’s VMAs Performance

By Dustin Shrader

Apparently, Laverne Cox was having a better time than anyone at the MTV VMAs on Sunday. During Beyonce’s show-stopping, 16 minute plus performance, which slayed the internet, the Orange is the New Black actress practically auditioned to be one of Queen Bey’s backup dancers.

Jumping up from her seat, Cox was waving her hands, working her hips and singing along to “Blow” while everyone sat around her quietly enjoying Bey’s mini-concert. Here’s looking at you Kim Kardashian. Who dares to stay seated when Beyonce is on stage? Obviously, Cox knows exactly how to rock out! Get it girl! We were all right there with you!

Vitamin D May Help With Your ED

Vitamin D May Help With Your ED

By Dustin Shrader

All right class, let me ask you a couple of questions: Have you been noticing you are not pitching as many tents in the morning? Or even suffering from a lackluster performance in the bedroom lately? Well, turns out a lacking of vitamin D intake may be responsible for your soft little problem. According to a new research study from Italy, issues with erectile dysfunction may be induced by low levels of this particular vitamin.

When 143 men who suffered from differing levels of erectile dysfunction were tested, nearly half of them showed signs of vitamin D deficiency, with only one in five having a more than subpar level of the nutrient. Hardening the cause, men with severe cases of ED had vitamin D levels that were around 24 percent lower than men with only mild forms of the frustrating condition.

Erections occur due to an increased amount of blood flow. Without proper levels of vitamin D, a production of free radicals called super-oxide ions may take place. Alessandra Barassi, M.D., and her research team have found that these free radicals consume nitric oxide, which is a molecule that helps blood vessels function correctly.

Larry Lipshultz, M.D., a Men’s Health urology adviser suggests, “Nitric oxide causes the blood vessels to relax, which increases the blood flow and causes an erection under normal circumstances.”

So, basically the lesson of the day is this: without the necessary amount of nitric acid required, along with the healthy intake of some good ‘ole sunshine, your little friend might not have it in him to be so social.

Don’t fret, if you think you are suffering from ED you can ask your doctor to test your vitamin D levels. If your levels are below normal then the study recommends taking Vitamin D supplements to reach the ideal level of 30ng/mL.

And if all else fails, this is the perfect excuse to sunbathe naked.
