I like it on the kitchen table.
I like it on the couch.
I like it on our bed.
Seen any Facebook status updates like this yesterday? No, your friends aren’t more randy this October than usual. It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there is yet another Facebook meme circling the social networking site that purports to “get people talking” about breast cancer. Keep reading »
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and by now you should know the importance of self-exams and early detection. You may not know that there’s a real product on the market called “Boob Lube
” that makes those exams a little easier and maybe even more fun — especially if you have a partner help you out. A portion of every sale will go to support breast cancer research and awareness, which is nice and all, but you could always buy regular lotion or soap for a fraction of the price and donate the difference to a breast cancer organization of your choice, like Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Last week, we asked you to pledge to lead a healthier life and help those in need, in exchange for a plush Nautica “Sleep In For The Cure” bathrobe. And the winner of the prize is bdubs629:
“In 2008 I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease where I have to eat gluten-free. Having this diagnosis take place while I was in high school was difficult, but the extra 20 pounds I gained for my senior year was horrible. Because I was finally absorbing nutrients from my food the weight was gained in about a month and a half. My ex broke up with me because I wasn’t “pretty anymore” and his friends claimed I was too fat for their group.
Now 2 years later I am in college and a totally different person. I pledge to finally start mentally healing my emotional scars! I want to exercise, not to lose weight, but get that connection with my body again! I want to stomp out the negative feelings about my body that other people have imposed on me years ago. I will be sexy! I will be healthy!”

Nautica is sponsoring the Susan G. Komen “Sleep In For The Cure” initiative to raise funds for breast cancer research. You see, not everyone is able to lace up their sneakers for Race For The Cure. Some people are too ill, are caring for a loved one, or simply have to work on race day. Instead, Susan G. Komen For The Cure and Nautica want participants to fight breast cancer from the comfort of their beds. That sounds like a workable plan for me. How about you? [Susan G. Komen for the Cure]
“WIN THIS! We’re giving away one plush Nautica Sleep In For The Cure bath robe, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us how you pledge to lead a healthier life and offer support to those in need by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, Sept. 10. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

The Breast Cancer Foundation’s latest campaign encourages women to prioritize regular breast checks over fretting about less important worries like pimples, weight gain, and frizzy hair. Check out the beautiful (and NSFW) way in which they conveyed that message, after the jump… [OIC Singapore via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Some rumors just don’t go away: Richard Gere shoved gerbils up his butt. The Clintons had their enemies whacked. Abortion causes breast cancer.
A recent study of 300 women from the University of Columbo in Sri Lanka alleges that having an abortion triples a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. News of this study is primarily being reported (surprise, surprise) on anti-abortion web sites. But it has also made its way onto major news sites, like the U.K.’s Daily Mail. Keep reading »
