‘Walking Dead’ actor Daniel Newman ‘disgusted’ by $9K coronavirus test bill
Even celebrities can’t get their coronavirus test results in the United States — just the bill.
After having a colleague test positive for COVID-19 and developing minor symptoms himself, “The Walking Dead” actor Daniel Newman sought to be tested in Georgia. He called around and discovered his own doctor and many urgent-care clinics didn’t even have the tests available. When he finally found a large hospital in Atlanta that did have them, it was only after Newman was recognized for his role on the AMC horror TV series that he was given one.
“Preferential treatment is disgusting,” Newman, 38, tells CNN of being among the few to receive a test for the novel coronavirus. But apparently, even fame isn’t enough to get the results of the test — only an invoice to the tune of $9,116.
What Is The Porn Block & How Will It Affect You? There Are Some Big Changes Coming
In a bid to stop under-18s accessing pornographic websites, the government has announced that from July 15 age-checks will be introduced to commercial porn websites in the UK. The move has been dubbed the "porn block" and will require all sex websites that make money and run as businesses to introduce “robust” age verification procedures or risk facing a fine of up to £250,000 and being blocked by internet service providers. However, critics of the policy have said that teens will simply access porn in other ways, the loopholes are too large, and the changes may make little differences to big pornography platforms while putting smaller sex bloggers out of business.
While the porn block has come as a bit of a surprise for some it has actually been in the works for a long time, as the BBC reports. During the 2015 election the Conservative party pledged to introduce age-verification for online pornography if it won the election. It was also included in the Digital Economy Act 2017 and while it was supposed to be implemented in 2018 it has faced numerous delays.
The company that owns YouPorn and PornHub has developed the technology AgeID that will be used by those companies to verify the ages of its users. James Clark, Director of Communications at AgeID, told i-News, “first, a user can register an AgeID account using an email address and password, both of which are protected..." He continued:
“The user verifies their email address and then chooses an age verification option from our list of 3rd party providers, using options such as Mobile SMS, Credit Card, Passport, or Driving Licence.”
Bisexuals will be the invisible victims in the imminent UK porn block
Researchers Offer Remedy for Women's 'Orgasm Gap'
(NEWSER) – Out of the many different types of people having sex out there, it seems that when it comes to reaching orgasm, straight women are at the bottom of the totem pole. Reporting in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, researchers at the Kinsey Institute, Chapman University, and Indiana University found that 95% of straight men usually-to-always orgasm when sexually intimate compared to 65% of straight women. They call it "the orgasm gap." The study is called "Differences in Orgasm Frequency Among Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Heterosexual Men and Women in a U.S. National Sample," though a reporter at the Chicago Tribune suggests it could be shortened to "Duh." The study, however, doesn't just document the gap—it offers a remedy in the form of what the researchers call a "golden trio" of moves, per the Huffington Post UK.
Study seeks answers to the "orgasm gap"
Straight Men Are Having Sex With Straight Men And Saying It’s Not Gay, Science Says
Sexuality is fluid, but for some men, they feel it is possible to identify as heterosexual and still engage in same sex intercourse.
Research on this topic comes out of the journal Sexualities, where study authors Héctor Carrillo and Amanda Hoffman conducted 100 interviews on men who largely identify as straight, but have casual sex with other men.
What they uncovered was an overwhelming pattern that while men may recognize that they identify as bi or participate in bi-sexual activity, they feel that it’s in their best personal interest to outwardly show a heterosexual lifestyle.
Furthermore, there is much distinction between being emotionally and romantically invested in a person, vs. strictly physically interested.
Once and For All, Are Bi Guys Liars?
A lot of people seem to be under the impression that men can either be gay or straight, but never bisexual. Bi guys are seen, at best, as sexually confused—and, at worst, as liars.
I mean, just take a look at the results of a 2015 survey of nearly 3,000 Americans who were asked to respond to the statements "I think bisexual men are confused about their sexuality" and "I think bisexuality is just a phase." The vast majority either agreed or said they weren't sure, which tells us that most Americans aren't yet convinced that bisexuality is a legitimate sexual orientation.
While the general public may have questions about whether male bisexuality is real, scientists don't. In fact, a growing body of research has emerged that provides unequivocal evidence for the existence of bisexuality among men. Let's take a look at the most significant research that has occurred so far.
Her Boyfriend is Obsessed with Male Anatomy and Watching gay Videos, Insists he’s Straight
A 30-year-old woman says her 32-year-old boyfriend insists he’s straight but that he also has a penis fetish, watches gay porn, and once hooked up with another dude, so she’s turning to Reddit for help.
“My boyfriend of 10 months, whom I love very much, just admitted to me that he has questioned his sexuality in the past and currently watches gay porn on occasion,” the Reddit post begins. “He says that he’s not attracted to men, isn’t turned on by men, has no interest in dating men, but does have a ‘penis fetish,’ as he calls it.”
Her boyfriend told her is all started when he went through “a cocaine phase and had thoughts of a penis arousing him–not a man.”
She writes, “He explored it and gave himself permission to hook up with a man and says it was never a real interest of his. He thinks that it’s not the man itself that’s attractive to him, but the penis.”

Bi guys in opposite-sex relationships talk about desire for men
In a new Reddit thread, a bi guy who is married to a woman asks his fellow bisexual brethren how they get cope with their homosexual urges.
“I’m a hetero-leaning bisexual man in an opposite-sex relationship,” the post begins. “Most of my sexual urges are currently for women, but I’m aware of some desires for men. They’re not strong enough for me to want an open relationship, and my main sexual priority is my love life with my wife. But my fantasies and porn consumption cover the full Kinsey scale. That’s about all I need to scratch my ‘homo itch.'”
The man continues: “I know that most bi guys are in opposite-sex relationships. But I’m curious about those who are in same-sex relationships — how do they scratch their “hetero itch?” Watch straight porn (there are a surprising number of gay-identified men who do)? Arrange for the occasional threesome? Get a Fleshlight? Just ogle women?”
Now, let’s dig into some of the responses.
For one guy, it’s all about porn consumption:
The private reason some bisexuals don't come out
Participants consistently said they believed they would face stigma for having sex with men. They also specified other reasons for not revealing their bisexuality to people close to them, including: negative emotional reactions; harm to relationships with wives or girlfriends, and previous negative reactions to disclosure.
