My 

fellow party folks…HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I know you have been partying your last days of 2009 away in the utmost fashion. There were so many events going on, it was hard for me to keep up! As we say goodbye to 2009, I begin to think about all the fun times we had last year. We found a way to rock each and every night away! When this magazine hit the streets, it was filled with flyers describing every event taking place in the city. But it took your girl Starlet to really inform you on what was really hot and what was not! We had one hell of a summer, didn’t we? Partying through those long summer nights, all the way till the sun came up. I was constantly looking for our local after parties, and was sure to tell you all about them! Then the winter came so ferociously, and the temperatures dropped so low that we found ourselves looking for warmer ways to party. No matter the season or the temperature, I was here to let you know where to have a great time! This year’s no different! I promise to research THE sexiest, hottest, and most popular spots to party. I will highlight only those events worthy of your time. This year, I plan to go deeper into the minds of promoters & club owners. I will visit new venues & locations, and give you the full skinny on these spots! This year, your emails will be published, and I will find the answers to any and all of your questions. This year, I encourage promoters & club owners to take advantage of this column. If you notice on www.flyerpromonow.com, the Starlet section is the most visited page on the site. The people want & need to know where to party. Utilize this section to get your party noticed. Send me emails with your flyers & full details over your event. I assure you if it’s worthy of my presence, I’ll be sure to let the streets know it’s worthy of theirs. Next edition, I am going to close down the 2009 party seasons with my top favorites of the following categories: • Favorite Promoter • Favorite Event • Favorite DJ • Favorite Graphic Designers for Club Flyers • Favorite Party Moment • Favorite Club Song • Favorite Venue • Best Come Up • Worst Come Down I’d love for you to help me out with these. Email me your favorites to starletinthestreets@gmail.com. Also, send any event info or inquiries. 2010 is an even year…giving us even more reasons to CELEBRATE! www.flyerpromonow.com

FLYERPROMONOW presents I n this issue , the

will give our readers a little bit more of something to talk about. We’re giving you the word on the street

– what we really

talk about amongst ourselves in the local barbershops, nail salons, at our favorite hangout spots and yes, even on

Twitter. Once a month, the Talk of Orlando column will touch on specific topics that will get you thinking, laughing, sharing and most importantly, talking.

WHAT’S YOUR BODY COUNT? By: Petal Munroe

First up, let’s talk about sex. I’m sure some of you have heard this before, but here’s a thought-provoking question to get the conversation rolling: If you had a dollar for every person that you slept with, what would you be able to buy? Maybe you could afford a new designer-brand outfit or perhaps just a meal from off the value menu at a fast-food restaurant? Whatever the purchase may be herein lies a moment of truth and self-reflection. What does your number of sexual partners say about you? If you were a professional athlete and sex was a game of basketball, would you be a rookie on the bench, a starter racking up major points on the scoreboard, or a veteran with championship rings on

each finger? Knowing and feeling comfortable with your own status is one thing, but would you tell your significant other how many sexual partners you’ve had, and would you want to know their number in return? Your sexual history is – justifiably so – your HISTORY, but if you believe in open communication and honesty within your relationships, would you willingly disclose this personal information? With all of these questions in mind, let’s get right down to it – what’s your body count? According to a Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey, American men have an average of 13 sex partners in a lifetime and women have an average of 9. Another survey conducted by a branch of the CDC (Center of Disease Control) also finds that Black men and women were more likely to report having 15 or more sexual partners in a lifetime than any other racial or ethnic group. Now let’s take a moment to reflect on all of that. Suppose your ‘body count’ is already up in the double digits and you haven’t even lived half of a lifetime yet. What does that suggest or reveal about you? Granted, some people are just comfortable expressing their sexuality more so than others; however, this freedom of expression can come with a price. “It sucks but it’s just assumed that women should not have too many partners because it just seems socially disgraceful,” says Alex Hanse, a recent graduate from the University of Florida. Dana Hill, a UCF graduate, also adds, “That number shouldn’t mean anything, but it does. This number could perhaps tell me how experienced my lover is or their values on sexual partners.” She questions, “Do they have too much [sex partners] and have no regards for such an intimate act?” The judgments placed on men and women may be a major factor why the number of sexual partners differs between the two. It’s also quite possible that the numbers could be skewed because some men may feel the pressure to lie to enhance their sexual reputation, while women might lie to downplay their sexual experiences. Have you ever heard of the notion that suggests when a man tells you how many sex partners he’s had divide it by 2 and when a woman tells you her number multiply by 2? This reiterates the fact that it’s more socially acceptable for a man to have a higher body count than a woman. Men are seen as “players” and held to a higher regard, while women are labeled sluts/whores and disrespected. But if we didn’t live in a society with that double-standard, would women necessarily change their behavior? If we all had to wear our number of sexual partners like the Superman ‘S’ on our chests, would you feel comfortable doing so? “I wouldn't [care if people knew how many sex partners I’ve had] because I would be getting praises from one side and dogged by the other,” says Jerome Brown, a Florida resident now currently residing in Dallas, TX. “That's just the way our society sees it. I don't think that will change anytime soon.”


The stigma placed around having multiple sex partners varies across the country. An article in the NY Daily News reported that the average number of sexual partners for women in New York City alone is nearly twice the national average. No wonder the show Sex in the City is based in New York! It is very representative of the fact that New York is a heavy populated liberal state and the women there generally feel more sexually uninhibited. To no surprise, New York also tops the Forbes list of the ‘Best U.S. Cities for Singles.’ This may be a factor of why the average number of sexual partners is so much higher in New York than in any other city. On a local perspective, Orlando is 26th on that list, coming above any other Florida city. Miami is 29th, followed by Tampa-St. Petersburg at 33rd and finally closing the list of ‘Best U.S. Cities for Singles’ at the 40th spot, Jacksonville. Another interesting fact about the Sunshine State is that there are more single men in Central Florida than there are single women, according to a U.S. Census Bureau survey. With the amount of single people populating the state, one might assume there’s a lot of casual sex going on, which can account for the increase in number of sex partners throughout the years. “I don't see anything wrong with [casual sex] as long as you’re single and being as safe as you possibly can with it,” says Jerome. “I believe [men and women] should be able to have as many [sex partners], or as few as they want. Then there are different levels of sex. In my undergrad whore days, at one point I had all four [types of sex partners]. That's not uncommon.”

Now that prompts another issue: is casual sex as casual as it is common? Now ask yourself these questions: when is the last time you went out on a date with someone new, in comparison to, when was the last time you had sex? Whether you have those candid conversations about your sex life or keep that secret list with the names of all the people you slept with, openly discussing your ‘body count’ still seems to be a taboo topic for some. What you consider a high number of sex partners is absolutely relative, but nevertheless, it still gives you something to think about. You can choose to have multiple lovers or love one person in multiple ways. The decision is ultimately yours. But if you’re one to pride yourself with a high number of sexual conquests, remember this: when it comes to sex, QUALITY is better than QUANTITY. I’m just sayin’ though… www.flyerpromonow.com

il Wayne's and Young Money's tour bus was pulled over in Texas by Border Patrol for a drug search days before the album dropped. Even though drugs were found, luckily it was without incident and no one was arrested (as of yet). Actress Brittany Murphy, (Clueless and 8-Mile) passed away from a sudden heart attack at the age of 32. Her husband,British screenwriter Simon Monjack, stated that his "world was destroyed." Tragic may she R.I.P. Rapper Kid Cudi gets arrested. Details are kind of sketchy but it's reported he was involved in an assault in Los Angeles and later released. However his Twitter claims he got tasered. Hmmm gotta love LAPD. Tina Knowles, and husband Matthew are calling it quits to their 29-year marriage as legal proceedings in Houston, Texas, began on November 11 after living “separate lives” for months. I wonder if it has to do with the recent paternity suit he got slapped with. Kids outside a marriage?!? Man down!

Dear Shannon, My husband is allegedly cheating on me with other women. How do I know whether to stay or leave? Please help! -This is not Elin Woods Dear This is not Elin: Ultimately, this decision is for you and only you to make. Intuition is usually right; so find time to sit in silence and let your decision come to you. Seek happiness. If staying will keep you and your family happy, you must determine that; however do not sacrifice self in hopes to change another person. "Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than to hurt yourself putting them back together." You may want to send this to Elin Woods though, however I heard she's waiting on her check and leaving...Good luck! Be Blessed and Happy Holidays, Shannon

H

appy New Year!!! The beginning of 2010 marks the end of the NFL regular season. Im welcoming the new year with open arms because its playoff time. The Patriots, Bengals, Chargers, Vikings, and the Cardinals all clinched the playoffs. The Saints and the Colts clinched the Division and Homefield advantage. I am highly disappointed about the Patriots losing to the Ravens but when you can't stop the run you can't win games. a second string reciever stepped up and did his best, he looked like a little Wes Welker if you ask me. The Jets not only made it to the playoffs but during week 16 the Jets needed a win over the undefeated Colts and they also needed the Dolphins, the Jaguars and the Ravens to lose. Well Santa delivered a victory two days after Christmas because all the aforementioned teams lost and the Jets defeated the Colts 29-15. Then they defeated the Bengals two Sundays in a row and they have secured a definitive spot in the journey to the playoffs. The Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys again, let me find out Tony Romo is trying to not to choke again this season. He may earn some respect from me after all. Christmas day wasn’t a good one for the Orlando Magic who lost to the Boston Celtics 86-77. It was however a good game for Rajon Rondo. Rondo just missed getting his third career tripledouble, but did manage to gain his 14th double-double of the season. Rondo is BALLIN and if you don’t agree check out his stats. Rajon leads the league in steals, is second, behind Steve Nash, in assists, and in a recent game became Rajon Rondo only the 3rd Celtic to enter the 30-15 club. That’s right Rondo had 30 points and 15 assists. Who are the other two Celtics in this club? Bob Cousy and Larry Bird. So, if Rondo sits amongst legends then why is he 8th in the running for a coveted spot on the All-Star roster? No disrespect to other point guards in the running but seriously I would way

rather see Rondo with the second starting spot than Allen Iverson. I’m just saying. Manny Pacquiao and his camp have had enough of Floyd Mayweather and his camp saying anything. Pacquiao announced that he is suing Floyd Mayweather Sr., Floyd “Pretty Boy” Mayweather Jr., and Golden Boy Promotions for defamation. Mayweather Sr. believes that Manny was only able to rise through weight divisions and win titles while maintaining his speed and power by using illegal substances. Pacquiao denies such accusations and thinks it’s a ploy of the Mayweather camp. I think Manny is calling Floyd scared. Unfortunatey they won't be fighting. This would have been the biggest money fight in boxing history. I really wanted to see this fight because Pacquiao is the only one who can truly go toe-to-toe with Mayweather. 30 Second Timeout This timeout is for Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton who allegedly pulled guns on each other in the Wizards locker room. The alleged incident is supposedly over a gambling debt that Glibert owes Crittenton. Arenas denies the incident ever took place. I don’t know how much money was owed what I do know is that this incident could affect both these players’ season; which in turn affects their money. So, I hope that the dollar amount on that debt was worth more than your career. I understand it was probably in the heat of the moment but in the locker room? Get it together and make better decisions. Now Arenas is suspended indefinitley. The commissioner may try to make an example of him and never let him play another NBA game again.
