The link wouldn't open, but.....

I saw the page title and I'm going to guess that it's some sort of publicity stunt (there's a sequel to Basic Instinct about to open).

Link worked for me......... here is part of story
by Glenda / March 28, 2006 1:50 AM PST

Actress SHARON STONE is adamant teenagers should be prepared to engage in oral sex, if it saves from them the dangers of unprotected penetrative sex. The BASIC INSTINCT spends much of her time away from Hollywood working as an activist raising AIDS awareness, and she always carries condoms with her to hand out in a bid to increase safe sex levels. She explains, "I was in the store the other day and I watched a young girl trying on clothes, showing her abdomen. "Her mother was trying to talk to her about not being inappropriately luring. I said, 'Gee that would look much nicer with a camisole under.' "Her mother walked away, and I said to the girl, 'I'd like to give you a two-minute conversation about sex.' "Young people talk to me about what to do if they're being pressed for sex? I tell them (what I believe): oral sex is a hundred times safer than vaginal or anal sex. "If you're in a situation where you cannot get out of sex, offer a ********. I'm not embarrassed to tell them."

Arrest her
by James Denison / March 28, 2006 8:01 PM PST

If I'd been there I'd have called the police and had her arrested for making lewd suggestions to my daughter. She should mind her own business and her own children, if she even has any children. What a meddlesome and whorish witch.

this kind of garbage does seem to flow most at a movie opening. They say there is no bad publicity, but I think there is useless, tastless and stupid publicity.

Such ignorance about the supposed safety of oral sex.

Such arrogance to offer sex advice to a teenager in the try-on room of a store.

And such a ridiculous notion that "If you're in a situation where you cannot get out of sex, offer a ********." Excuse me?????????????

Isn't a situation...
by C1ay / March 28, 2006 2:08 AM PST

Where you just can't get out of sex called rape? When it comes right down to it isn't there the choice to just say "no"? What a moron. I wonder if Ms. Stone and Tom Cruise have been jumping on couches together to avoid their desperately needed visit to the a scam artist, I mean psychiatrist.

I was just about to say the same thing
by Josh K / March 28, 2006 3:11 AM PST
In reply to: Isn't a situation...

I suggest that a woman who "can't get out of sex" blow a loud whistle rather than her attacker. And if a stranger (celebrity or not) walked up to my kid in a store and started talking about sex, I'd call security.

Sharon Stone had brain surgery a few years ago. Methinks they accidentally removed some healthy tissue along with the tumor.

The only pictures I recall of your daughter posted in SE was right after she was born, or a month or two later. She was pretty. Believe you have indicated she is now 3 years old as of last October.

"Babies"? Has anyone ever told
by John Robie / March 29, 2006 12:43 AM PST
In reply to: True ...

a parent that their non-defect baby was not beautiful?
Yes, I have seen many 'beautiful' babies that eventually are not very beautiful as adults. However, have also seen 'beautiful' older kids that are very beautiful as adults. Ever notice 'genes', how the good looks or features of the parents have an effect.

BTW, Josh is a nice looking young guy IMO.

Whether a person is honest ...
by Evie / March 29, 2006 1:33 AM PST

... in their opinion on the kidlet to the parents is another issue. Chuckling remembering the ugly baby Seinfeld episode Wink

But truly cute kids rarely become homely adults. Also, from the pics I've seen, Aimee has good genes.

And I'm not just saying that as a proud papa. She's really smart, scary smart sometimes. She's reading (she'll be 3 1/2 next week) and is playing computer games targeted at 5 year olds. We'll probably have to look into our school system's "gifted" programs.

For anyone interested, a few recent photos:

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
