Everyone makes fun of me at the office for being a germophobe. But read this story and tell me I’m wrong: professors in Belgium ran toxicology and bacteriology tests on library books and found that Fifty Shades Of Grey had the herpes virus. Oh, yes. The two profs checked out the 10 most borrowed books in the Antwerp library to test them for germs and drugs. Not only did the E..L. James BDSM erotica have traces of herpes, but they also found traces of cocaine on every single other book. Relax, though: you won’t get a contact high or a persistent vaginal itch from any of these books because the concentrations of both were so minimal. (Just to be safe, Belgians, you could always wear condoms on your hands while reading!) Let’s talk about the appropriate way to use library books, people. Tip #1: DON’T GIVE YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS STDS.  [TIME]

Keira Knightley and James McAvoy In The Library

Before seeing Atonement this weekend, I watched a segment on TV that went on and on about the super hot sex scene where Keira Knightley and James McAvoy get it on in the library. The show had an interview with James, who said that something like seven or eight of the barely there emerald green dresses were destroyed during the filming of the passionate sequence—they kept tearing. Well, that kind of ruined it for me. Watching the scene, all I could do was wonder how so many dresses could have been destroyed during the scene, which was less steamy than I expected it to be. And then I read an interview in which Keira said the director actually walked them through the scene, calling out instructions as they went along. Kind of makes you think less about the passion between the characters Cecilia and Robbie, and more about some old guy yelling, “Now, grab his groin!” [Monsters and Critics and The Deadbolt] Keep reading »
