Sinéad O'Connor Seeks Sex Partner in Personal Ad Singer wants a 'very sweet sex-starved man'

Knowing what gets posted on Craigslist, it's hard to believe Sinéad O'Connor went through a dry spell in the romance department. But she did, admitting in a recent column for the Irish Independent that "yams [were] looking like the winners." Figure that out for yourself—I'll spare myself the trauma of explaining it. Anyway, in her search for a "very sweet sex-starved man," she went on to post what amounted to a lengthy personal ad outlining her terms for a male companion, some of which were kind of weird (anyone named Brian or Nigel was automatically disqualified, for example). On her website, a non-family-friendly version of the column also addressed some other pertinent questions. "Let me now take time to make VERY clear that yes I 'do anal' and in fact I would be deeply unhappy if 'doing anal' wasn't on the menu," she wrote. She later blogged that she found a man, only to discover he had a pregnant girlfriend. So, the hunt continues. This may all be an elaborate joke, but it is more dignified than a sex tape. Just not by much. Via
