Whoa. We totally just found our favorite new blog (besides The Frisky, of course!) — a San Francisco writer named Casey is rereading and recapping the entire Sweet Valley High series. On the off chance a few of you readers weren’t fans of the series, it was the book series for tweens growing up in the ’80s and provided loads of thinly veiled sexual innuendo that overwhelmed our sense of what life would be like once we got our period. The series followed identical twins (twins were a big thing in the ’80s) Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield around their totally perfect town in California. Both of the twins were blond, with green-blue eyes and size-six figures, which permanently imprinted in our brains that a six was the size to be if we were going to be popular in high school.

Malaysiaâ€™s minister of health, Chua Soi Lek, announced his resignation today after trying (and failing) to brave a sex-tape scandal. This proves that starring in a raunchy video is an unforgivable act outside of Hollywood, despite Kim Kardashianâ€™s statement that â€œEveryone has sex with their boyfriend. Everyone takes pictures.â€ Before the ministerâ€™s tape came out, he was dealing with infidelity rumors. Then, he was caught on camera, from FOUR different angles, with a â€œfriend.â€ The minister didnâ€™t deny that it’s him on screen but wants everyone to know that he didnâ€™t have any part in the making of the video, which was edited into two full-length DVDs. As the minister of health, couldn’t he have claimed they were part of a new sex education effort? [NY Times, The Lede] Keep reading »
When it comes to viral content, nothing spreads faster than sex-related “memes.” (We could make a joke about how Lindsay Lohan’s legs spread faster, but that would be mean, so we won’t.) How else would you have any clue what “Two Girls, One Cup” refers to? So, in honor of end-of-the-year list making, Violet Blue put together one with the top 10 sex memes of 2007. We don’t recommend you Google her picks at work, unless the work you do involves posing naked for Playboy. Or lifting up your shirt for Girls Gone Wild. Or something.

People holding traditional jobs with company-wide holidays aren’t the only ones who will be spending time at home with their families, sipping hot cocoa, and decorating trees with tinsel this coming week. News 24 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, reports that sex workers usually take a few days for themselves, and many spend holidays with their children. They deserve a break, too, because December is a busy month — one woman who works in the “adult entertainment industry” said she has five or six clients a day during the month. We just hope she uses one of her days off to get tested for STDs. [News 24] Keep reading »
Your roommate isn’t the only one under the impression that screaming loudly makes sex better. According to a new study, female monkeys call out before, during, and after doing it. But their screamsâ€™ purpose isnâ€™t just to annoy monkeys in neighboring trees. The study concluded that the femalesâ€™ yells make them more attractive to the guys, helping them ejaculate. When the females didn’t holler, the males ejaculated less than 2 percent of the time. Also, yelling led to more vigorous sex. How did researchers discover this? By channeling their inner voyeur: “Counting monkey pelvic thrusts is admittedly quite weird, but it’s science. You get used to it,” one researcher said. [Times of India]
