Listen, I’m totally supportive of a DIY lifestyle. You wanna make your own makeup and cleaning products from scratch? By all means! Got 30 new uses for old timey mason jars? Tell me all about it! But for the love of god, don’t DIY your contraception, especially with root vegetables pulled from your garden. It’s a bad idea. Case in point: according to Colombia Reports, a 22-year-old woman, on the recommendation of her mother, stuck a potato in her vagina for two weeks in the hopes that it would prevent pregnancy. Instead, the potato grew roots, causing severe abdominal pain. The woman was hospitalized, the potato was surgically removed and she’s expected to be fine, but what isn’t so fine is the fact that Colombia’s youth population has been dissuaded from using real contraception.

So I kind of hate admitting it when a piece of culture cuts straight to the core of everything that hurts me because I’m afraid that admitting it publicly will allow someone to use it to hurt me worse, but I love this slam poem so much — and that’s not something I expected to write today — that I just want everyone to watch it.
Poets Kaycee Filson and Desirée Dallagiacomo (can we be friends?

We teach girls, this way, that we are empty vessels for men to fill and that is why they feel entitled to do so. Keep reading »
Chances are you’ve heard the story: an unmarked door leads to a dimly-lit massage parlor where women with strong hands and tolerant smiles await a train of libidinous male patrons. The “happy ending” tale is all too common, a mixture of truth and urban legend that captivates male imaginations even in an age of casual sex and unlimited Internet porn.
“It’s always a certain type of place,” said Brian, a 41-year-old screenwriter who admits to visiting the odd “men’s spa” or two (though never, of course, for that). “You go for a reason, and you know what you’re getting when you walk in the door.” Read more on YourTango.com…

A burger joint in Copenhagen, Denmark, isn’t chicken about arousing controversy: It’s now selling sex toys along with hamburgers. Starting Thursday, Hot Buns is adding dildos, vibrators, whips and other sex-oriented products to the menu.
It’s a natural fit, considering the restaurant puts as much emphasis on the tank top and hot pants worn by its all-female staff as it does on the burgers. Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…
We live in a society that has us believe that if we’re not getting any, then our life is a failure. OK, that might be dramatic. But if you’re not getting laid your friends often look at you with pity in their eyes, as they try to console you with promises that you’ll have sex again, someday, even if that someday is five years from now.
