The Daily Squeeze: Playing Dead, Pain Control, Puppies, And Pills

  • Male spiders who play dead double their chances of getting lucky, according to a study in Behavioral Ecology. The spiders studied all tried attracting partners by offering food held in their mouths, but the ones who laid flat and motionless were in a better position for sex, literally. This is the first time researchers have observed creatures “playing dead” as a way to get sexual favors. [AFP]
  • Got cramps? Acupuncture might help reduce the pain without the side effects associated with pills, according to a new German study. Hopefully reworking your qi will make you less cranky, as well. [Reuters]
  • An ad for a sports broadcaster that refers to a woman’s breasts as “puppies” has been cleared by an advertising watchdog. The ad depicts a man telling Santa Claus what he wants for Christmas, as one of “Santa’s helpers” looks on. The man looks at the woman’s breasts and says, “Couple of puppies,” then an announcer says, “…Give him what he wants this Christmas.” [Digital Spy]
  • A man who took too much Viagra (that he bought on the Internet, mind you) claims he has only been able to see the world in shades of blue, a known possible side effect, for the past two weeks. “I admit I ignored the advice on the packet. I was having too much fun,” he said. “But I’d give up all the sex in the world to be able to see a red letterbox again.” [Telegraph, U.K.]
