Bits 'n' Pieces!

The War On Pornography is gaining momentum in Texas...and, according to the reporter who wrote the article, it's going to be in your yard soon, too.

The International Sex & So Much More Show is in Minneapolis right now -- just mere miles from me...this is what I get for not reading the newspaper! Now, to scrounge up admission money, and talk Gracie into going...although I doubt she needs much coercing!

Kids who have nosy neighbors wait longer to lose their virginity. Regardless of free condoms in school and HPV vaccines for teens, kids who think their actions have effects beyond themselves are going to act more responsible -- this goes for, violence, grades, bathing, etc. Let's give them some credit, and take some responsibility ourselves; I hate to say it, but it takes a village...yadda yadda yadda.

Sorry to quote a beer commercial, but keep that in mind when I say...Here's to you, Mr. Vintage Porn Buyer! You've got thousands of dollars to spend on photos of naked women who are either very old or very dead (it's not creepaayyyy!) If you only had four or five hidden in a closet, you might be a pervert -- but you, you are a conniseur! (that makes it classyyy!). So, in honor of your validation of leering at nudie pictures, here's to you, Mr. Vintage Porn Buyer (Mr. Vintage Porn Buyerrrrrr!)

Rural Indianans are more likely to incorrectly use condoms, compared to urban Indianians, according to a study. Wipe those images of men with condoms on their ears or inflating them as bathtoys -- but, by 'incorrect,' they mean waiting too long to put them on and taking them off too soon. It's a rather generous definition of 'incorrect', seeing the condom actually makes it onto the penis in all their cases. Still, good for them: figuring out who is screwing up when it comes to condoms will only slow the spread of disease. Why bother teaching the people who got it right, when so many got it wrong?

Scooter Libby, darling of the current Republican administration and newly resigned chief of staff for the VPOTUS, once wrote a novel involving a "bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons." Excuse me, Mr. FBI, aren't you shutting down websites for writing about these things? Oh, it's different when it's a Republican, I suppose. The book will be reprinted soon, but out-of-print ones are still available.

The Japanese are the least sexually active country in the world -- again? In an annual survey by Durex, the Japanese made love just 45 times a year, on average -- less than once a week -- a statistic that's down from 2004. So, the country with the most horribly vulgar, degrading, and paedophilic pornography (and allows it to be partaken of in public) has the least amount of sex, hmmmm? Let's keep that in mind next time we accuse the pornography industry for rampant sexualization. There's something else at work, and it's not the entertainment industry.

A group of young women are protesting Abercrombie & Fitch's line of offensive T-shirts...well, offensive to women who don't find them funny. Just as I won't ever be seen wearing a "take me drunk I'm home" t-shirt, women unaffended by the shirts simply shouldn't wear them. Bonus: Newsday's t-shirt model is medium-breasted and slouches a little...well, all except for the "Who needs brains when you have these?" shirt, which she must've been quite proud of (incidentally, the photo was taken from a vantage point coinciding with the 'talking to your breasts' conversation women hate so much). Note that you can buy copies of this photo from Newsday, if self-deprecating humor about huge breasts is your thing.
