From Reuters By Toshi Maeda TOKYO, July 18 (Reuters Life!) - Real love is hard to find for one Japanese man, who has transferred his affection and desires to dozens of plastic sex dolls. When the 45-year-old, who uses a pseudonym of Ta-Bo, returns home, it's not a wife or girlfriend who await him, but a row of dolls lined up neatly on his sofa. Each has a name. Ta-Bo often watches television with his toys before bathing them, powdering them so that their skin feels more human, dressing them in lingerie and then taking them to bed. "A human girl can cheat on you or betray you sometimes, but these dolls never do those thing. They belong to me 100 percent," says the engineer who has spent more than 2 million yen ($16,000) over the past decade on the dolls. "Sometimes it takes too much time before I can have sex with the person I meet. But with these dolls, it's just a matter of a click of the mouse. With one click, they are delivered to you."
From FemaleFirst.co.uk Country star Keith Urban credits rehab with saving his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman. The singer spent 90 days at the Betty Ford clinic in Palm Springs, California to treat alcoholism earlier this year (07). And the 39-year-old is pleased he sought treatment because it dramatically strengthened his marriage to his wife of one year, Kidman. He says, "My wife was away. She hadn't really been away before, and it came as a shock to me to be alone and not prepared for it; alone with this thing that I had, this big monkey on my back. "Not going in would have cost me my career at the very least, and my marriage would have been gone, anyway. That real cleansing and surrendering everything is what was really needed for me.

From ANI London, July 14 (ANI): University of Zurich researchers have created a spray that can relieve people of shyness, and help them socialise with others. The spray is very easy to use, and an individual can boost self-confidence just by squirting it up the nose. The researchers say that the spray harnesses the powers of a feel-good hormone called oxytocin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is involved in social recognition and bonding. The mammalian hormone is produced naturally by the body when a person is in love, and it also induces labour in pregnant women. The spray contains a synthetic version of it, created in the laboratory.

Click for rare images of Padma Lakshmi From New York Daily News By George Rush and Joanna Rush Molloy Billionaire Ted Forstmann has trained his gaze on another world-class beauty. The financier, whose consorts have included Elizabeth Hurley and Princess Diana, has become a fast friend of model, chef and actress Padma Lakshmi. Their mouthpieces maintain that the two are not dating. But that hasn't stopped some from noticing that Forstmann has appeared in Lakshmi's life just as her husband, author Salman Rushdie, is leaving it. Reps say the 67-year-old tycoon and the 36-year-old host of Bravo's "Top Chef" have been meeting simply because she's become a client of Forstmann's International Management Group, the sports and entertainment marketing giant.
From People By Liz Corcoran and Stephen M. Silverman Five months after their engagement, Howard Stern and fiancée Beth Ostroksy are no nearer to announcing plans for their nuptials. "Well, we don't really have wedding plans," Stern told PEOPLE Saturday at a party hosted by Hamptons magazine, which features Ostrosky on the cover. "We're enjoying being engaged. We like the whole idea of being engaged. We think we like it even more than the idea of being married." As for their future plans, "we think for another year we could be engaged," he said. The news will come as no surprise to those who recall Stern's vow never to marry again after a fake wedding announcement on his radio show last year. "I am not married," he said at the time. "It's a nice feeling that we get along great. We're very happy and I don't want to f--- it up." Tango’s Take

From Daily Mail It is undoubtedly one of the most unusual family set-ups in the country. A lesbian couple have both given birth to babies using sperm from the same father - a gay drag queen they met in a nightclub. The bizarre deal was made when Stephanie Burns, 23, asked her lesbian friend Joanne Bartle, 40, to help her find a sperm donor so she could become a mum. Using an NHS hypodermic syringe Stephanie got herself pregnant after Joanne injected her with sperm donated by outrageous female impersonator Ryan Egeley, 21. And Joanne, who has a three-year-old son from a previous straight relationship decided she would follow suit and used a separate batch of sperm donated by Mr Egeley. Tango’s Take
