Jenna Jameson's Nude PETA Ad Addresses the Issue of Too Much Sex!

Check out behind the scenes footage of Jenna's photo shoot.

Rumors are swirling that adult film icon Jenna Jameson might be pregnant.

Whether this is true or not, one thing is for sure:

Jenna knows the importance of birth control—animal birth control (ABC), that is.

That's why Jenna posed nude alongside the tagline "Sometimes Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing" in PETA's latest ABC ad.

Every year, nearly 7 million dogs and cats are abandoned at animal shelters in the U.S., and the shelters are forced to euthanize almost half of these animals for lack of good homes.

The good news is that you can help as Jenna has—and you don't even have to take your clothes off!

It's as easy as ABC: animal birth control.

What is animal birth control?

It means always spaying or neutering your companion animals and never buying from a breeder or pet store.

If everyone took these small steps, we could put an end to the companion animal overpopulation crisis.

"Until dogs and cats can go on the pill or wear condoms, we need to help them practice safe sex—by spaying and neutering," says Jenna.

"Millions of homeless animals are turned in to shelters every year because there simply aren’t enough good homes for them all.

The answer is as easy as ABC: Animal Birth Control, which means get your Fido or Fluffy fixed!"

No Recession for Superstar Paydays

Agents tell me they’ve never had a tougher time negotiating paydays for their top stars.

Upfront salaries are shrinking along with percentage slices on the back end.

Before working up too much empathy for the superstar fraternity, I thought it would be helpful to take one more look at Forbes’ the Celebrity 100, its annual listings of “the world’s most powerful celebrities” as ranked by power and pay.

Forbes estimates annual incomes of stars in various categories and chooses not to disclose research techniques or sources’.

Nonetheless its breakdowns yield yearly surprises as well as question marks.

Absent from the top of the money list this year are the likes of Tom Cruise ($13 million) and Brad Pitt ($20 million) – they either had a bad year or were secretive about their take-home pay.

Nonetheless, there are all sorts of surprise additions:

I knew 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) had a good year at $150 million, but did Pharrell Williams really pull in $20 million?

Miley Cyrus scored big this year ($25 million), but did Daniel Radcliffe also haul in $25 million for Pottering around and yanking off his shorts in Equus?

I thought actresses like Keira Knightley and Gwyneth Paltrow devoted too much time to art movies to become big-time earners, but Paltrow pulled in $25 million according to Forbes;

Knightley, $32 million.

In the actor category, Bruce Willis got his act together well enough to make $41 million this year, which still paled next to Will Smith’s $80 million.

Even Howie Mandel dealt himself in for $14 million.

Just to get the sordid details out of the way, the top five earners across all categories consist of J.K. Rowling at $300 million (and she just writes!),

Oprah at $275 million, Curtis Jackson at $150 million (he’s still 50 Cent?) Jerry Bruckheimer at $145 million and Ste-ven Spielberg at $130 million.

At the bottom of each category are the let’s-not-feel-sorry-for-them losers like Amy Adams ($14.5 million), Vanessa Hudgens ($3.2 million),

Marg Helgenberger ($6 million, which helps support her husband, SAG ball-breaker Alan Rosenberg), Daria Werbowy ($3.8 million Cavalli model) and Anthony Bourdain ($1.5 million chef on the Travel Channel).

I have no idea if these numbers are reasonably accurate, but I think all of these folks deserve our applause.

In a recession year, they had to hustle for their money.

Anthony Bourdain even roasted a warthog rectum for his viewers.

And then ate it.

That’s earning your pay.
