Would You Tell Your BFF If You Slept With Her Ex?

Perhaps the better question isn't whether you would tell your BFF that you slept with her ex, but whether you'd sleep with her ex in the first place. And maybe a more interesting question is: how would you react if your best friend confessed she slept with your ex? A woman writing to…

Sex In A Church Confessional

An Italian couple totally got busted making love in the confessional in a cathedral. The two were detained by police when they disturbed things during morning Mass, but they met with the local bishop to ask for forgiveness and he did, and celebrated a "Mass of reparation" to make up for the sacrilege.
