Do men really want a dad bod over a fit bod?

Dad bods have been garnering lots of media attention lately. When we asked you whether you preferred a hot bod vs a fit bod earlier this month, 52% said they’d go for the fit bod.

A Tennessee pastor who was caught having sex with another man in a church van parked in an empty parking lot by police, was arrested this week for stealing an estimated $60,000 from his beloved church.

Boyd Watson Holder Jr. 44, the pastor of Victory Apostolic Church in Kingsport, Tennessee, was taken into custody after church officials reported that between $70,000 and $100,000 had gone missing from the Church’s bank account in Kingsport, reports the TimesNews.

When Holder was asked about the missing money, he told church members, “It’s none of your business.”

Patheos adds:

Actually, investigative reporter Nate Morabito found out that two of the witnesses during this money laundering case were representatives from online dating sites, one of which specifically caters to gay men. (In case you’re wondering where some of that money was going…)

Morabito even found a dating profile (on the right) that matches up perfectly with the image on Holder’s Facebook page (on the left) in which Holder is looking for a “regular nice guy to get with”:

To be clear, it’s irrelevant if the pastor is gay. But if he’s having sex with another man while preaching against homosexuality, then screw him.

And if he’s stealing the church’s money along the way, let’s hope the punishment fits the crime.

The best part of the story is how Holder denied doing anything inappropriate in the van after police ordered him off the property and not to “have relations in public” again.

“I simply took the van out,” Holder explained back in January. “A young man requested that I would meet with him, which I did to talk about the faith. Just as soon as we had parked this police officer came up behind us and acted like all of this was going on.”

We have some great news for men who love orgasms!

New research from Harvard Medical School has found that regular orgasms can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by up to 20%, but researchers did not explain why orgasms could lower prostate cancer risk.

There are two dueling theories as to why orgasms reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men. One is that regular orgasms may flush out cancer-causing chemicals in the prostate. The other is that if sperm is regularly cleaned out to allow new cells to develop, it helps stop the build-up of old cells that might be more likely to turn cancerous.

The prostate is a small satsuma-sized gland located between a man’s penis and his bladder, whose main function is to produce a thick white fluid that is mixed with the sperm produced by the testicles, to create semen.

Researchers found that men between the ages of 40-49 who ejaculated 21 or more times a month, reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 22%.

DailyMail adds:

The study followed almost 32,000 healthy men for 18 years, 3,839 of whom later were diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Men were asked about their average monthly frequency of ejaculation between the ages of 20 to 29, 40 to 49, and in 1991, the year prior to the questionnaire.

They found that the more frequently a man ejaculated throughout his life, the lower his risk of prostate cancer at all three of these points in time.

This was the case even when they adjusted their results to take factors such as diet, lifestyle and a history of prostate cancer screening into account.

Dr Jennifer Rider, of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said the results are ‘particularly encouraging’ but should be interpreted with caution.

“While these data are the most compelling to date on the potential benefit of ejaculation on prostate cancer development, they are observational data and should be interpreted somewhat cautiously. At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging,” she added.

Researchers at the University of Montreal found that men who slept with more than twenty women were a third less likely to develop the disease, 28 per cent less. They also found that celibacy doubles the risk of the disease.

So remember, “an orgasm a day keeps the prostate cancer away!”

Just when you thought you have heard it all, a Muslim televangelist is now claiming that a man would meet his masturbating hand “pregnant in the afterlife” and “asking for its rights.”

Mücahid Cihad Han caused a stir on Turkish social media this weekend when the televangelist answered viewers’ questions on private television station 2000 TV.

A viewer wrote in telling Han he “kept masturbating, although he was married, and even during the Umrah,” a pilgrimage to Mecca performed by Muslims, reports HurriyetDaily.

The man then repeated the question a few more times before Han responded by claiming Islam strictly prohibits masturbation as a “haram” (forbidden) act.

“Moreover, one hadith states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife, complaining against them to God over its rights,” he said.

HurriyetDaily adds:

“Istimna,” the Arabic term for masturbation that Han also referred to, is a controversial issue in Islam, as there have been varying opinions on its permissibility throughout history. The Quran has no clear reference to masturbation and the authenticity of many hadiths is questionable.

Despite Han’s assertive religious stance, only a limited number of Islamic interpretations categorize masturbation as “haram,” while most of others call it a “makruh” (disliked) act. Many of the mainstream Islamic interpretations even allow it in certain conditions, like if the act could be used to avoid the temptation of an extramarital affair.

Twitter had a field day with Cihad’s comments, one user asked “Are there any hand-gynaecologists in the afterlife? Is abortion allowed there?” Another asked: “So you think that being pregnant is a God-given punishment?”

On January 6, 2015, Florida became the 36th to allow gay couples to wed, ending a drawn-out battle over same-sex marriage in the sunshine state.

One couple overjoyed by the news were, Giancarlo and Bernardo, who decided to tie the knot last month in Miami.

They had the honor of being the first same sex couple to marry at the historical Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida.

The couple has been inseparable after meeting 5 years ago in Puerto Vallarta.

“Bernardo was in “Houston” for a business trip and then I received a text at 5 am (when i’m usually on my way to work) saying that I was not to go to work but to the airport,” Giancarlo told the Gaily Grind about the day Bernardo orchestrated an elaborate international proposal. “He had all my luggage prepped in the trunk of my car including the outfit I was to wear and my passport.”

“So I flew to St. Barths to meet him, little did I know he had rented this villa with my best friends to surprise me.”

Take a glimpse into their amazing day below:

Five-year-old same-sex marriage advocate Yasmeen Faruqui insisted on writing a letter to President Obama instead of doing her homework one day. And to her family’s surprise, he wrote back!

“Please stop war for our world, instead have a meeting,” reads Yasmeen’s handwritten note to POTUS, shared on Twitter by her aunt. “Please give a speech to tell everyone they can marry who they want.”

“Tell your niece I really like her letter. Couldn’t agree more!” Obama personally replied back on Friday, his sixth tweet on his new Twitter account.

ABC News adds:

Yasmeen’s words were all her own, her mother told ABC News. (After all, only a 5-year-old would note she’s “almost six” in a letter to the leader of the free world.)

“I just let her do her thing,” Tasha Faruqui said. “Those are absolutely her spontaneous ideas. … She has a mind of her own!”

Yasmeen, who’s set to participate in a family member’s same-sex wedding ceremony this fall, was bothered when her playmates insisted “boys can’t marry boys.”

“I don’t think that’s wrong,” she told her mom.

“She’s very much an independent thinker,” Yasmeen’s aunt, Fahmida Zaman, told ABC. “She attempts to respectfully color outside the lines.”

When Yasmeen heard the president had read her letter, she “went through the roof.”

“This means the war’s going to end! He got the letter,” Yasmeen yelled.

“I think it says a lot about our president, responding to a letter of a 5-year-old. That’s pretty remarkable,” Zaman said. “It lets her feel like her voice is heard.”

It is the dawn of a new era in Ireland today, just a day after a historic election in which hundreds of thousands of Irish voters said ‘Yes’ to marriage equality in support of their fellow LGBT brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors!

Voters rejected centuries of anti-gay rhetoric and saw the truth about love, that it does not have a gender, race, skin color, creed, or sexual orientation!

The vote, which marks the first time a country has legalized same-sex marriage through popular vote, has already given one teen the courage to come out of the closet.

TheJournal.ie tweeted a message they received from a 16-year-old girl who wanted to remain anonymous. TheJournal writes: “Moving email we just received from a 16-year-old girl who asked to stay anonymous on her reaction to the vote #marref.”

The teen writes: “I am a 16 year old teenager, so I had no say in this referendum. But recently I have discovered that I am bisexual. I didn’t tell anyone, for how could I expect them to treat me equally if the law didn’t? I didn’t want to acknowledge that I might never get married to someone I love. Today, however, when I woke up and heard the news, I started crying. I have already come out to a few of my close friends this morning, knowing that today I am living in a more equal Ireland than the one I went to sleep in yesterday. To everyone out there who vote yes: thank you for giving me a future where I can be happy. Thank you for changing my life forever. Not bad for just putting an X in a box, right?

Thanks to your ‘Yes’ vote, you have given teens the courage to step out of the shadows of their closets and say “I am proud of who I am!”

Early indications suggest that Irish voters backed same-sex marriage by a landslide in a historic referendum marking a dramatic social shift in the traditionally Catholic country, reports Reuters.

Final results of Friday’s referendum were not expected until later today, but government ministers and opponents of the bill predicted Ireland had become the first country to adopt same-sex marriage by a popular vote by a margin of around two-to-one, only two decades after it decriminalized homosexuality.

“This has really touched a nerve in Ireland,” Equality Minister Aodhan O’Riordain said. “It’s a very strong message to every LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) young person in Ireland and every LGBT young person in the world.”

Health Minister Leo Varadkar, who came out as gay in a radio interview earlier this year, said the referendum resembled a “social revolution.”

State broadcaster RTE reported that up to 80 percent of voters backed the ‘Yes’ campaign in some working-classing areas of Dublin. The results were much closer in many rural areas, but the overwheliming majority of voters appeared likely to back ‘Yes’, RTE noted.

Reuters adds:

The proposal was backed by all political parties, championed by big employers and endorsed by celebrities, all hoping it would mark a transformation in a country that was long regarded as one of the most socially conservative in Western Europe.

Only a third of the country backed the decriminalization of gay sex for men over 17 in 1993, according to a poll at the time. A supreme court judge in 1983 said homosexuality was “morally wrong” and contributed to depression and suicide.

“This is a big placard from the people of Ireland to the rest of the world saying this is the way forward,” said David Norris, who began a campaign for gay rights in the late 1970s.

The Catholic Church, whose dominance of Irish politics collapsed in the wake of a series of sex scandals in the early 1990s, still teaches that homosexual activity is a sin. But it limited its ‘No’ campaigning to sermons to its remaining flock, a marked contrast with active public opposition to similar moves in France and elsewhere.

Instead, lay groups led the opposition by raising concerns over parenthood and surrogacy rights for gay couples. Many believe the recognition of the legal rights of same-sex couples in 2009 is sufficient.

One of the main opponents of the bill conceded minutes after the first boxes were opened.

“Everyone seems to be predicting a ‘yes’ … and that seems to be the case at the moment. It’s disappointing,” said John Murray from Catholic think tank the Iona Institute.

And here are some of the best twitter reactions to Ireland’s landslide marriage equality vote:

This virtual human patient can talk to the learner, expresses fears and concerns about the prostate exam, and presents a realistic patient encounter,” Lok told Geekosystem.

Patrick comes equipped with force sensors which alerts students when they are being too aggressive, and provides feedback on how thorough the student was in his or her examination.

“Consider this,” Lok said, “how would a medical student know if they are doing a good prostate exam? Currently it is impossible for the educator to gauge performance. This simulation provides performance, feedback, and an opportunity to learn and lower anxiety.”

You can find Patrick happily bent over a table at Drexel University and at the University of Florida.

Josh Duggar, the oldest son of reality TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting family, has resigned from his position as executive director of the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council’s lobbying arm after apologizing for his “inexcusable” actions as a teen when he sexually abused five underage girls, including family members.

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” Josh told PEOPLE in his statement. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”

“When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked,” Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar told PEOPLE. “We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before.”

“Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles every day. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us – even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey – the good times and the difficult times – cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything.”

NCRM adds:

In Touch magazine published a 33-page police report that reveals Josh Duggar, around the age of 14, sexually assaulted five girls, including family members, and allegedly admitted to at least one of the assaults.

These were repeated sexual molestations, some forcible, and went unreported for months or a year, according to In Touch, which also states some were felonies, although Duggar was never prosecuted.

TMZ says they have learned some of the girls Josh allegedly molested were his sisters:

According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him … in one case reading a book.

There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program. The police report says Josh’s mom, Michelle, said it wasn’t really a treatment center … they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor.
