2007: The Year of the Threesome
The Threesome Handbook hit bookstores, the The American Pie Threesome Pack hit video stores, and three-ways popped up on shows ranging from Entourage to Flight of the Conchords.
Meanwhile, the Hollywood set were rumored to be partaking in their own three-way love fests. According to Star Magazine, Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova partook in a bedroom romp with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Scary Spice Mel B. reportedly got it on with two women. And no tawdry sex trend would be complete without a mention of, you guessed it, Paris Hilton. Word on the street is that the heiress spent the night of her 26th birthday in a single room at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas—with both Stavros Niarchos and Brandon Davis.
2008: The Year of Gay
In 2008, California briefly overturned legislation banning gay marriage, Connecticut legalized same sex marriage, and New York began recognizing gay marriages from other states.
It was one of the best years to be be gay in U.S. history, and GLBT-ers embraced it. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi got hitched. After 21 years together, George Takei (aka, Sulu from Star Trek) and Brad Altman finally tied the knot. And Wanda Sykes and her partner Alex became wife and wife.
In the non-marriage arena, Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan began their stormy relationship. Clay Aiken surprised absolutely no one when he came out of the closet. Michael Stipe announced that he was gay. And Katy Perry's ubiquitous song, "I Kissed A Girl" hit radio dials.
