For women, she’s got the face of Cara Delevingne and the legs of Elle Macpherson, both notable models. For men, she’s got Scarlett Johansson’s hair, and surprisingly not her boobs.
The above photo represents what the perfect woman looks like to men and women, according to a recent survey conducted by Bluebella.

The #itouchmyselfproject is a new breast cancer awareness campaign inspired by the late Chrissy Amphlett who passed away last year after a battle with breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. The campaign uses Amphlett’s early 90′s international hit “I Touch Myself” as the anthem for the new movement.
Ten of Australia’s greatest female singers came together to record their version of the classic Aussie hit in the below video for the campaign:
When she found out she had breast cancer, Amphlett herself was quoted in recommending the song to help spread awareness and highlight the importance of checking for early signs of cancer.
The campaign encourages the public to upload and tag “#itouchmyselfies” to help spread the word. You can check out the message and campaign here.

According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society (ACS), there is no connection between breast cancer and wearing a bra for many hours per day. But, there are at least five research studies suggesting otherwise. This is why some scientists are calling for a boycott against these two organizations for facilitating what they say is a cover-up that is costing lives.
Medical anthropologists and co-authors of Dressed To Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras, Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer, say that wearing a bra more than 12 hours a day dramatically increases breast cancer risk. According to Singer and Grismaijer, the problem with bras is that they restrict the flow of lymphatic fluid, causing toxins to be retained in the breasts since they have no where to go.
In their research, Singer and Grismaijer found some very shocking information: “A woman who wears a bra 24/7 is 125 times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who rarely or never wears a bra,” and, “Those who sleep in their bra have a 75% chance of developing breast cancer at some point in their lives.”
Additionally, research from a 1991 Harvard study found that women who wear bras have greatly increased incidence of developing breast cancer over women who do not.
Apparently both the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society have been aware of this research for at least 20 years, but have chosen to omit it from their information about breast cancer. To-date, there are no studies to refute this. This is why Singer and Grismaijer are so frustrated and why they are “calling for a boycott of these organizations until they stop dismissing the bra-cancer link, and begin educating doctors and women about the cancer hazards of wearing tight bras.”
They feel that Komen and the ACS should use their money to research the connection further and possibly save the lives of millions of women, and they have a suggestion for the public beyond the boycott. They propose that “whenever the ACS or Komen Foundation ask for a donation, send them your bra, instead! This will give them the message, and help you prevent breast cancer at the same time.”
Do I sense a bra-burning revival coming on? Why, this is the breast news I’ve heard all day!*

*Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
The residents of Toowoomba, Australia, were outraged when the city’s first strip club, The Vault, opened last week. Now, the controversial establishment has further riled the conservative residents by opening a topless barber shop.
Bree Francis, pictured below, is one of the hairdressers/strippers offering “in-your-face” haircuts as a cheeky new attraction at the strip club.
“A fellow last week paid for three haircuts just to look at my boobs and then he gave me a $120 tip afterwards,’’ Ms Francis, 21, said.
“It’s so different from normal hairdressing. I’m more comfortable because I’m naked.’’
Some locals who fought unsuccessfully to stop The Vault from opening say the topless barber shop is “just rubbing our noses in it”.
Well, that’s one way to put it!
