Snoop Dogg tells WMMJ that he is working on a movie about his life. “You see how like Narcos went from Escobar to the Cali cartel, now it’s about to go to Mexico. I’m thinking like a Snoop Dogg biopic: late ’60s with my mother and father; pops in Vietnam; ’70s, when I was born in ’71, in the hippie era growing up; ’80s, football, selling candy—uh oh!—cocaine, selling drugs, gang-banging; ’90s—uh!—rap […] You see what I’m sayin’? To me, that’s more enticing than a two-hour Snoop Dogg movie

I hit her right dead on the point of the nose the first shot and when I did, she went down and started trying to bite me right here. I just continue pounding and pounding and pounding and she’s continuing trying to bite me. She got a hold of me and then shook me a little bit, then she let go and she took a swat at me and when she took a swat at me she knocked me about eight feet over on the concrete.”

ONE IN 10 AMERICANS ARE ADDICTED TO SEX – (11/12/2018)
A new study has found that sex addiction may be more common than we thought. Researchers from the University of Minnesota surveyed 2,325 U.S. adults aged 18 through 50 in the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior in November 2016. They found that 7% of women and 10% of men struggle to control sexual thoughts and urges. Previous estimates predicted that about twice as many men struggle to control sexual urges as women but the new study shows that the gap is closing. University of Minnesota psychiatrist Dr. Janna Dickenson said this about the compulsive sexual behavior disorder study, “Explanations justifying the hypothesis that CSBD may be much more common among men than women have been vague, although some researchers have pointed to differences in male sexuality with regard to intrinsic sexual motivation, ease of arousal, and more permissive attitudes toward casual sex.” She continued, “Such explanations tap into the sociosexual culture that underlies conceptualizations of masculine ideology, in that male sexuality as ‘irrepressible,’ and suggest that when men get more access to sexual ‘outlets,’ they may be more prone to developing compulsive sexual behavior.’
