Jonathan Van Ness and Rachel Bloom discuss how the latest developments in Game of Thrones have resurrected their sexual interest in the series.
Hunter Osborn, 19, said he was only responding to a silly dare; now he's facing 69 counts of indecent exposure.
What could he have done? He dropped his pants during a high school photo of the football team.
When the Mesa Police Department, in Arizona, found out they swooped in and arrested the young man. Police also charged Osborn with furnishing harmful items to minors, because many of the pupils present while the photograph was taken were under 18. (Talk about an over reaction!)
"It is still an ongoing investigation," said a police spokesman. "The number of charges may go up or down depending upon how the investigation continues."
When the photograph was first taken last year, no one noticed. The image landed in the yearbook and made it out to 3,400 students. It was also included in the school's football program.
Mesa Public School released a statement: "The district is dismayed by the actions of the students involved in the photograph. Their behaviour does not reflect the values of Red Mountain High School or Mesa Public Schools. Upon learning of the photograph, school administration immediately contacted police and is cooperating fully with the investigation. Disciplinary action will follow ... and may be based on the outcome of the police investigation."
As for Osborn, who was 18 at the time, he said he did it on a dare and that he felt "disgusted" by it. He is now under house arrest and must wear a tracking device.
There may be a very slight silver lining: Playgirl has offered to help him out.
“We’re trying to reach this kid to get him in Playgirl. We want to support him as this was a hilarious prank, and people are too tightly wound. Playgirl.com would like to have him pose naked and pay his legal bills,” a spokesperson said.
We feel sorry for Osborn; he's in a crap load of trouble for a silly prick prank, and has to live with the fact that his penis is so small that it took several months before anyone even noticed it. Poor guy.

A new study suggests that men who ejaculate often are less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who don't do it as frequently.
The study followed 32,000 men from 1992 to 2010. Researchers found that the men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month in their 20s were 19 percent less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than men who ejaculated no more than seven times a month. And men who ejaculated more often in their 40s were 22 percent less likely to get a prostate cancer diagnosis.
“Ejaculation frequency is, to some extent, a measure of overall health status in that men at the very low end of ejaculation – 0 to 3 times per month – were more likely to have other (medical problems) and die prematurely from causes other than prostate cancer,” explained Jennifer Rider, who lead the research team at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston.
“While our findings should be confirmed in studies that evaluate the potential biological mechanisms underlying the observed associations, the results of our study suggest that ejaculation and safe sexual activity throughout adulthood could be a beneficial strategy for reducing the risk of prostate cancer,” she added.
More research is needed to determine the accuracy of the results. One potential problem with the study is that it required men to remember their ejaculation history, leaving room for misinformation. As well, the study included mostly white men, meaning men of differing backgrounds may have different results.
