Another Sexting Scandal Has Rocked The Universe, Save Yourself And Destroy Your Phones Now

sextingFor the umpteenth time, a sexting situation has turned “scandalous.” You are so shocked, aren’t you?

One of the top executives over at Hearst is “quitting” because he’s been caught in a salacious sexting scandal from which the company will probably never be able to recover. “SINGLE father” and obvious deviant Scott Sassa had been engaging in some sexy phone behavior with a stripper (read: consenting adult) whom he met last December in Los Angeles. The sexting included naked photos from the woman to Sassa, and a bevy of sexy notes that probably talk about penises and vaginas hanging out together at a pizza parlor on a Saturday. You know, the usual sexting lingo.

Everything was fine and dandy until the woman decided to blackmail Sassa for some cash. Because Sassa, the man who has now brought shame upon his company (the one that publishes Cosmo, mind you), didn’t give in to her demands, the woman sent copies of all those dirty, nasty (yet probably fun) sexts to Sassa’s bosses. Now Sassa is stepping down from his position.

According to Gawker, a source said, ”She was texting him sexy pictures, and he was responding using words you absolutely would not want your bosses to see.”

Well, obviously. I wouldn’t be jumping up and down in delight if Jennifer was forwarded all the dirty things I’ve texted to people either, but I hardly think that would warrant my dismissal. If anything it would be awkward that my bosses and co-workers know that I call my vagina, “Mandy’s Heavenly Treasure Trove;” then we’d move on with our lives. It would be more than hypocritical of them to can me over such an incident. And honestly, even if I didn’t write about sex and, say, worked at a school, if it’s consenting adults and it’s happening outside of work, shouldn’t the embarrassment of your boss knowing such details be enough?

I’m not sure how many more times we’ll have to cover this, but people are sexual beings. They enjoy sex and it’s healthier to accept that, than deny it. Punishing consenting adults for a natural urge is just wrong, oh so wrong, and even more wrong once you consider who Sassa’s bosses are, or rather, were.

I have to go sext photos of Mandy’s Heavenly Trea– bake a cake for some unfortunate French dude now.

    They publish Cosmo? They probably wanted him to leave because none of the sexts involved comments about how much he wanted her to rub a hairbrush across his penis or pour hot wax on him when he couldn’t answer what her favourite colour was.

      REALLY – that is par for the course at Cosmo!

      Or perhaps if he had mentioned Cosmos, a different view of his trash talk would have been taken. What can I say, Cosmo is a trashy rag and you need trashy people writing it to keep it trashy.

    One time my ex-boyfriend was sending me a sext and accidentally sent it to the head of his company (who was a woman, so it easily could have appeared to be meant for her). He immediately saw his mistake, freaked out, sent a follow up text that said he was sorry, it was the wrong person and luckily he never received a response or heard about it ever again. But I still think it’s absolutely hilarious!

  • Breezy

    This makes me wonder if he didn’t request something unusually scandalous, like a three-way with the dog or to dress her up like a kindergartener or something.

    • Amanda Chatel

      A three-way with the dog? Breezy, your brain goes to dark, dark places. Besides, bestiality may be frowned upon, but don’t think it would warrant firing. (This is where I’d make a joke about southerners, but I shan’t!)

    • Breezy

      Sex with the dog would be worse than pedo fantasies? Hmm. Sadly that was a reference to a real experience and not something from my dark imagination.

    • Amanda Chatel

      Did someone request to have a three-way with you and a dog, or are you talking in regards to the pedo fantasy? I’m so confused.

    • Breezy

      The pedo fantasy was actually based on a harlotry tale… Didn’t Cate talk about guys who would call the phone sex line and request her to pretend to be a little kid?

      The dog three-way request is sadly something that a friend experienced. Her ex was a ridiculous douchebag and used to try to pressure her into to fooling around with the dog all the time. Among other things. She declined.

      What in the world was she doing with this FREAK to begin with?

      I hope as a friend you helped her move on from this FREAK! Sounds like you did … congrats to you for being a true friend.

  • JennyWren

    Yeah, this seems a wee bit crazy to me. I get that Hearst has a “public profile” to keep up (although knowing they publish Cosmo makes me want to snort-laugh at that a bit) but I just don’t see how this is an “offense” that warrants dismissal. It’s always awkward when your work and private lives overlap but if he did this stuff on his own time and at his own expense…also, has anyone arrested the woman who was blackmailing him? Because she’s really the person whose actions bother me in this scenario.

    In a day where MOST people are driven by EMOTION rather then RESTRAINT, this is a deadly form of communication. Once you send something out there WITHOUT THINKING, you can NEVER get it back. It develops a life of its own. It’s even worse with kids that are IMMATURE and REACT rather then THINKING it through. Unfortunately we also have “adults” they refuse to GROW UP and react with measured responses or messages. I see MORE trouble with this as kids and adults are dumbed down more and rely more and more on EMOTIONS since they are NOT wise and have NO knowledge.

    Clearly 5 days ago by Amanda Chatel, the author of this article relates and laughs off her participation in tawdry exchanges. The only difference between her and who she writes about is that she did NOT get caught and the subject of her article DID get caught. Ah, such hypocrisy!

    businesses have been dismissingfiringletting go of people for their personal lives forever now, it’s nothing new. Companies have been so worried about “keeping rep” that if you have a job, you might as well kiss your sex, dating and personal life in general, goodbye. They really do track down everyone’s online profiles like facebook and twitter. Make a joke or share a picture (doesn’t even have to be of you) that’s in poor taste, share a controversial opinion, mention something sexual, share a photo of you and your friends hanging out at a bar, or if you were ever in anything questionable like a cam service or nude pin upmodel even years ago, or any of the like and they have grounds to fire you for “poor conduct” and not being a true representation of their company.
