Cheeky Angland

I've mentioned before that I'm a little stupid about British things.  I stayed up all night with girlfriends to watch Bill and Cathy Cambridge get married, I watch Downton Abbey with joyful abandon, and, omigod, have you SEEN Call the Midwife?  And then there's Newcastle Brown Ale and Plymouth Naval Strength Gin...oh!  Also Henry Cavill.

Because omigod, have you SEEN Henry Cavill??

Science is True! Believes No Politician Ever, Apparently.

Back at the beginning of April, a US district court judge, in an official ruling, told Kathleen Sebelius, Director of the Department of Health and Human Services, that her 2011 decision to restrict the over-the-counter sale of emergency contraception to women over age 17 was "arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable," and that "the motivation for [her] action was obviously political."

Another point for rational thought! (artist credit)

Dave Chappelle and Q-Tip Explain STDs to America's Youth

Dave Chappelle is funny as hell.  And Q-Tip apparently does everything well (and is also beyond dreamy).  Here, they (and also Snoop Dogg/Lion) tell some youngsters (and now you!) about penis diseases!  (NSFW on account of puppet nudity!)

Kid's face at 1:32!

How great is it when entertainment can teach you something?  The only thing not true in that whole video is that you can't get crabs from toilet seats - though you CAN get them from bed sheets, towels and sofas.  And just so you know, the story about crabs going extinct because of Brazilian waxing is based on doctors' anecdotal data, not any kind of actual scientific research, so we haven't exactly dodged a bullet yet.

Look how happy that non-extinct crab is!!

So take it from Dave, kids..."Keep your genitals out of harm's way, don't chase money, and refrain from littering, you'll be a winner!

Sex Work Flow Chart

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I really do try and stay apolitical here.  It doesn't matter which side of the aisle your preferred legislators congregate, pretty much everybody has sexy times, and I don't want to make anyone feel unwelcome.

Fer serious, y'all!  Come on in!

Chlamydia: The Broken Collarbone of the STI World

I wanted to use the CDC-approved slang term for chlamydia in the title of this post, so I could strike that supafly balance between legit and kewl (and also to point out the CDC recognizes the street names of these diseases), but, seriously, the CDC-approved slang terms for chlamydia are so gross, I just couldn't bring myself to to it.

I'm not even kidding.

20 Years of Sex Positive Commerce!

There is a store that makes me so happy I can't even stand it.  I'm not much of a shopper, so this is a relatively rare thing - there are some stores that make me happy, but for the most part, I'd rather walk barefoot on gravel than shop.

Right after a pedicure, even, when your feet are all soft

Design for Lovers

I love good design.  Utilitarian is great, and it most certainly gets the job done, but when something can be clever, beautiful and useful, all at the same time, it's like a little slice of sunshine.
