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. And so we ask, where is the craziest place you’ve ever hooked up? [Reuters]

Just like good tires, you can get a lot of smooth rides out of a good woman. Well, thatâ€™s what Goodyear’s new Italian ad is claiming. A silver fox, wearing nothing but a mink stole and a â€œcome hitherâ€ smile, poses like a pin-up next to the slogan, â€œThe only thing in your truck that never gets old.â€ We basically want to grow up to be her.

While the Italian Court of Appeals has got its defendants by the balls, they just brought their fist down on every fellow countrymens’. In a landmark case involving a mechanic being sued for what he claimed was merely jock itch, the court ruled that it is indecent to grab your junk in public. Although the judgment seems like polite common sense, superstitious Italian men grab their crotch for the same reason many Americans knock on wood. For instance, itâ€™s used to ward off misfortune when a hearse passes. Crotch-grabbing has even got its own motto in Italy — “Lo mi toccoâ€¦” which literally means, “I touch my…” but is mostly slang for “fingers crossed.” Sadly, grabbing his crotch didnâ€™t ward off bad luck for the mechanic who was fined 1200 Euros for rubbing the magic lamp in his pants.

It’s hard to believe that such an artsy and intelligent-looking illustration (above) is an Italian ad for Durex, especially when you learn that the same company has also used foul and degrading imagery to advertise its products. We like our condom ads the way we like our men: classy, not crass.
If you’re into computer games and contraception, play Durex’s “Egg Invaders,” where you “protect your egg from hordes of rampaging sperm eager to get their pointy teeth into your jelly!” Sadly, it only works on PCs. [EternallyCool.net and Durex] Keep reading »
I firmly believe the key to a successful catalog is the ability to transport the readers/shopper into another world where, with the aid of the clothing the catalog sells, they can be as freaking fabulous as they want to be. J. Crew makes me feel this way and I know I’m being a mindless consumer for saying so. Unlike the piles of catalogs that come from West Elm and Crate & Barrel (um, how yuppie am I?), I don’t even get annoyed when I get my third J. Crew catalog of the month! I see its arrival as an excuse to take a little reprieve from my day, to go on a trip to Italy, where I’m wearing a Bright Flame Gayle Ruffle Trench slurping on pasta with my man, Lady & The Tramp-style. Or maybe I’m sight-seeing on a lovely Spring day, hitting the cobble stone streets of Florence in a pair of Bistro Orange-colored Twyla Midheel Slingbacks. Luckily, time doesn’t exist in J. Crew fantasy land, so even though I should really be getting back to work in the real world, there’s still plenty of hours left in the day to walk through the Duomo in a Verushka Print Dress. Unfortunately, the one thing that does exist in both J. Crew Fantasy Land and The Real World, is the prices. J. Crew, I’m just not so sure you’re a fantasy worth going broke for. [J. Crew] Keep reading »
“Your eyes are the same color as my Porsche.” While this pick-up line may have success in Germany, according to a Times Online article on international dating styles, all men find themselves constantly fumbling for a way to impress the ladies. From handling finances to feminism, guys around the globe chimed in with their whiny tales of chasing tail. What did they have to say? Frenchmen, known for their seductive savoir faire, gripe that it’s hard to meet women because they seem so busy.

Find out, after the jump. Keep reading »
