Turn On The Light By Blowing In This Ear

OK, this is weird. If you really, really hate The Clapper, you will probably love Turn Me On, a light switch created by designer Chris Haines. Instead of flipping a wall switch, you saunter over to this molded, wall-mounted ear, blow in it, and the lights are turned on (or off). Personally, we find this particular light switch to be totally freaky. It looks like it wants you to whisper sweet nothings in its ear. Or the wall wants to know all your secret fantasies. Or your apartment is listening in on your conversations. [NOTCOT] Keep reading »

Japanese Resort Devoted To Men With Virtual Girlfriends

Just when we thought Japanese technology couldn’t get any freakier (Love Pillows, anyone?) — now comes a new wacky perversion.

Today’s Lady News: Politician Shows His Junk To Woman After Offering A Ride Home From Work

  • A local politician in Platte City, Missouri, has been charged with sexual misconduct after he allegedly drove a woman home from her job at the grocery store, unzipped his pants, asked her, “would this satisfy you?”, if she was being pleased sexually at home and to touch her vagina. According to a county prosecutor, the woman told Charles Cook, “I would appreciate it if you would pull up your pants. I don’t want to have sex with you. I don’t want to do anything with you. I just want to get home.” Cook allegedly then pulled up his pants and took her home. Who knew “Can I have a ride home?” was a sexual come-on? [KCTV5]

Gay Couples In Texas Can’t Get Divorced

Texan conservatives need to make up their mind—first they banned gay marriage, then they accidentally banned straight marriage by writing, “This state … may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage” and leaving out the gay part. Now they’re banning gay divorce! You would think that they would be psyched at the chance to keep a homosexual couple apart, but the decision reads, “A person does not and cannot seek a divorce without simultaneously asserting the existence and validity of a lawful marriage. Texas law, as embodied in our constitution and statutes, requires that a valid marriage must be a union of one man and one woman, and only when a union comprises one man and one woman can there be a divorce under Texas law.” This is super inconvenient for the Dallas couple who got legally married in Massachusetts four years ago and want to get divorced now.
