Lots Of People Got Knocked Up During Hurricane Sandy

So what were people doing without TV, internet and power during Hurricane Sandy? Those of us who weren’t gorging on non-perishable snacks, stalking strangers on Facebook and looking for their drag queen dopplegangers (I had power!) or confronting various existential life crisis were entertaining themselves the old-fashioned way. SEX.

According to the CityScape OB/GYN in Manhattan, there has been a significant increase in pregnancies originating at the time of Hurricane Sandy.

“We see around a 10 percent spike, so we’re anticipating a lot of business by the end of the summer,” said Dr. Luba Soskin.

Sounds like we should prepare ourselves for a Hurricane Sandy baby boom! Let’s hope these parents-to-be have the good sense not to name their children Sandy. That would just be wrong. [NBC New York]
