ESPN Getting Olympic Sex Advice?


ESPN The Magazine recently launched a new blog and they’ve snagged some eye candy video talent to go with it. Olympic Gold medalist Amanda Beard (pictured) is reportedly hosting a video sex advice column. According to the folks at The Big Lead:

We’re hearing that ESPN the Magazine‘s new blog will debut a new feature very soon (today?) that is likely to titillate (pun intended) the masses: Olympic Gold medalist Amanda Beard giving out sex advice. In videos. Reading questions off of her blackberry. Wearing a bikini.

As a member of the prime 18-35 heterosexual male demographic for ESPN The Magazine, this editor approves.

Beard was previously the covergirl for the July 2007 issue of Playboy and is currently featured in television commercials as the “GoDaddy Girl.”
