Possibly ruining my appreciation for the noble Swedes and their fine IKEA meatballs, a recent study has found that Swedish men with STDs think their infection is an affirmation of their manliness.

The models in this Giulio Sciorio shoot are fully clothed (at least from the neck up), but the title of the spread, “Faces of Ecstasy,” makes an otherwise pretty PG editorial far more risqué.

We Frisky gals are obsessed with “True Blood.” These vamps we’d be happy to fang bang, no wooing necessary. I mean, have you seen Eric, shirtless and six-packed?
