My 1st Mammogram - a Video Walk-Thru

This video is from 4 years ago but it is very much still relevant. I had my 1st mammogram and was so nervous about it because I would hear such negative things. So I took my video camera with me and recorded before, during, and after about having my first mammogram. If you are 40 (or whatever age your doctor suggests) and are nervous about having your first mammogram done -please watch this!

Porn: Doing Its Part to Detect Lady Cancers

The latest place to find this exciting message is in Poland. Sociological Images brings attention to a porn site that has an interactive mammogram. Seriously. All one horny but well-intentioned (presumably) guy must do is roll his mouse over the porn star’s breasts while she sumptuously pouts and he will learn to do a mammogram! Isn’t that great? Making boobies bounce on a photo is totally the same as feeling for lumps in a woman’s breasts. What a fantastic campaign that will save lives!   Read more >
