Model Rayna Terror teamed up with Riot TV to go see a specialist to, uh, as she delicately puts it, "get my brown star turned into a bronzed ornament." You might be asking yourself why anyone would want a bronze mold of their anus, considering that's normally something you reserve for, say, baby shoes. "I like trying to experience new things even if they're weird things," says Terror. "I don't want to get older and regret not getting my butt bronzed." Better safe than sorry.
How can two married women be caught in such a disgusting act? To the extent of lodging in a hotel just to fulfil their devilish desires. Lord have mercy..
This ungodly incident that took place in Kenya, has left everyone in a traumatic mood. People were wandering in shock, thinking on what could actually be their problem. Is it that they are not getting enough love and care from their husbands, or they just decided to catch some crazy fun.

Scores of these communes are springing up all across the U.S. In the wilderness areas of the West, Southwest, and New England, the new settlers build their own homes–adobe huts, log cabins, geodesic domes–share their money and labor and legislate their own laws and taboos.

Australian Woman Pulled Her Own Twins From Her Sectioned Tummy During Caesarean Delivery Says - 'It's My Body, It's My Birth, It's My Baby' !!!
She's the Australian woman who delivered her own twins by Caesarean section. Three days before Christmas, Gerri Wolfe, 41, delivered her 10th and 11th children, Matilda and Violet, in a very unusual procedure at John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, New South Wales. Going against the advice of her doctors, Mrs Wolffe was determined not to repeat the 'very sterile, very impersonal' experience of Caesarean births of four of her other children. She chose an unusual process called a maternal assissted Caesarean that follows the normal surgical procedure until the point when the baby is removed, when the mother reaches down and pulls the baby from her own body. 'It's my body, it's my birth, it's my baby,' Mrs Wolffe told Daily Mail Australia.

However, he reassureds viewers that these are both used for perfectly good reasons.

Afro juju music creator and one of Nigeria’s greatest musicians, Sir Shina Peters, has ‘relocated’ temporarily to the United States of America. SSP, like he is fondly called, jetted out months back to be beside his darling wife, Sammie, who is down with cancer, cancelling some shows and forgoing many other things.
YES INTERNATIONAL! gathered that Mrs. Peters’ terminal illness didn’t just start. As a matter of fact, we were told that it was diagnosed about 3 years ago by Dr. Abayomi Finnih of Finnih Hospital, in Ikeja, Lagos. And that since then, they’ve been managing it until recently when it got out of hand, forcing the woman, a mother of one (Clinton), to go abroad in search of better medical attention.
Sir Shina Peters, no doubt, loves the woman who runs a school in the Fagba area of Lagos, so much. Beside composing a masterpiece of a song for her (Omo nbo), he’s never tired of eulogizing her, both privately and publicly. The music star who is a known womanizer with children from different women once told us that inspite of that, the woman never made the home uncomfortable for him.
