Today’s Lady News: ACLU Challenges Nevada’s Attempt To Call A Fetus A “Person”

Disturbing Trend: Virgins For Sale

Sex sells, and a virgin will cost you a million bucks. While some of us waited for that sensitive teenage boy to deflower us to the Dave Matthews Band (or, rather, the first 30 seconds of “Crash”), a few more entrepreneurial ladies won’t pop their cherry for less than seven figures.

Um, last time we checked, state schools weren’t that out of reach, but we can’t blame the girl for upping her ante.
