50 Shades Of Grey may well be one of the worst-written books ever. But being a blight on the face of literature isn’t the reason Brevard County Public Library in Florida pulled the BDSM erotica novel from shelves: they called 50 Shades ”pornography.” But Brevard County is not consistent in what they consider “pornographic” and what they consider simply “erotic”; The New York Times found other sexy books on the shelves, like The Complete Kama Sutra and Lolita. A spokesman for the county government said the latter books were acceptable because they had “become part of the societal mainstream.” Here’s hoping this is the work of overzealous local government officials, not librarians themselves. In any case, is this a plus-one in the Florida column for keeping such terrible writing away from readers? Or a minus-one for censorship? I’m not even sure. [NY Times]
You can say a lot of things about sex with a Frisky girl, but one thing you can’t say is that we’re stingy. Nope, we’re like Oprah on her “My Favorite Things” episode only with, uh, blowjobs.
However, we are not always so fortunate with the gentlemen with whom we choose to share our beds. I know this will come as a complete shock to you, but there’s some greedy, selfish lovers out there who just take-take-take and then roll over and fall asleep. There’s nothing sadder than a snoring man in your bed and you’re getting yourself off with your vibrator. Nope, not even doggies without legs.
We polled our ladyfriends on this startling phenomenon and here’s the true-life tales of selfish lovers past:

“I actually had a nightmare the other night that people were trying to deflate my boobs while I was working. They had tubes and I was trying to work, but they kept getting smaller. I was like: ‘Guys, don’t take them away!’ I’m getting issues about it, I think.”
– I would love to be a fly on the wall when Jennifer Love Hewitt discusses this nightmare in therapy. [The Sun UK]
I dunno, I think “Check out our cox” is a pretty funny slogan for a men’s crew team. (The person who directs the boat is called the coxswain or cox for short.) But a student who witnessed the Tuft’s University men’s crew team wearing their “Check out our cox” shirts to a Spring Fling dance was not amused, and filed a “bias incident” report of sexism. The team was then suspended from rowing by their own coaches, which would have kept them out of an important championship game. Fortunately the suspension was lifted by the president of Tufts — correctly assessing that people were perhaps being a wee bit too sensitive. Please, let the preppies have their penis puns!
