Womanizer suffers superglued stiffie

A wannabe Don Juan was tempted to a motel in Wisconsin by the prospect of a tryst with one of his numerous lovers. But instead of a night of passion, according to court documents, he found himself confronted by four angry women – among them his wife and another girlfriend – and on the receiving end of a revenge attack grisly enough to make any philanderer think again.

Prosecutors are investigating the convoluted incident that ended with the man tied to a bed with his penis superglued to his stomach, an apparent punishment for his womanising ways. The ambush was said to have been set up by the man’s wife after she found out he had cheated on her with a number of other women.

The roots of the alleged assault were laid when 48-year-old Therese Ziemann met the man through the Craigslist website. They began an affair, and Ziemann became sufficiently smitten to pay for his use of a motel room for two months, as well as giving him about $3,000.

On Wednesday last week, Ziemann met the man’s wife and learned that not only was he married but had a series of other girlfriends from whom he had also extracted money. The following day, she tempted the man to the Lakeview Motel in the village of Stockbridge and suggested he let her tie him up and blindfold him for a massage.

As soon as he was secured, Ziemann cut off the man’s underwear with scissors and sent text messages to summon the man’s wife, another of his lovers and Ziemann’s sister to assist her.

According to the court documents, when the other women arrived Ziemann hit the man in the face and attached his penis to his stomach using superglue.

The women fled – allegedly with the man’s wallet, phone and car – after he started screaming. He managed to chew through one of the bindings and borrowed a telephone from the motel owner to call police.

The women…have been charged with false imprisonment. Ziemann is also charged with fourth-degree sexual assault.


Women’s bizarre revenge on suspected rival backfires


Three women came to believe that a 28-year-old member of their sex, who had just moved to Washington State from Mexico to be with her husband, was having an affair with one of their boyfriends. So they allegedly hatched a series of absurd schemes to get rid of her.

So cops say they staged a fight at a restaurant, and called city police to report her, hoping they’d discover she was in the U.S. illegally. It didn’t work, and after strike one, the bumbling companions are reported to have tried again.

This time they phoned state authorities to report the victim was driving drunk and was a danger to other motorists. Cops sent a cruiser by and pulled her over, but she was perfectly sober. Strike two.

But their last at bat in this game of revenge baseball was perhaps the most audacious and outrageous of all.

The trio is accused of driving up to the unsuspecting victim as she left a store, forcing her into their car, then spiriting her away to an immigration office, where they demanded border agents put her on a plane back to her native country.

It took the stunned officials a while to sort out what was going on and they refused the request to take the woman into custody. Instead, they called police and officers started their own investigation, quickly discovering what the accusers were allegedly up to. Strike three and game over.

They’ve all been charged with unlawful imprisonment, a serious felony that could see them do jail time.


How much Girl Talk is too much?

Most teenage girls love to talk to their friends. And talk. And talk…

Female friendship, in all its lovely layers and potentially dark complexities, is inexhaustible grist for film, television and literature — from “Heathers” and “Mean Girls” to “Thelma and Louise,” “Sex and the City,” “Gossip Girl” and “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.”

But recently female friendship and girl talk, particularly among adolescents, has drawn growing interest from psychologists and researchers examining the question of how much talking is too much talking. Some studies have found that excessive talking about problems can contribute to emotional difficulties, including anxiety and depression.

The term researchers use is “co-rumination” to describe frequently or obsessively discussing the same problem. The behavior is typical among teens — Why didn’t he call? Should I break up with him? And, psychologists say, it has intensified significantly with e-mail, text messaging, instant messaging and Facebook. And in certain cases it can spin into a potentially contagious and unhealthy emotional angst, experts say.

The research distinguishes between sharing or “self-disclosure,” which is associated with positive friendships and positive feelings, and dwelling on problems, concerns and frustrations. Dwelling and rehashing issues can keep girls, who are more prone to depression and anxiety than boys, stuck in negative thinking patterns, psychologists say. But they also say it is a mixed picture: friends who co-ruminate tend to be close, and those intimate relationships can build self-esteem.

Poisonally – to paraphrase Groucho Marx – I think a neurotic society produces an excess of neurotics.

But, RTFA. Some interesting investigation going on in there.
