During a talk about the AIDS epidemic at New York’s 92 Y, actor Alan Cumming slammed HBO’s “Girls” for showing far too much unprotected sex.
“We’ve got to try and stop this cavalier attitude that [the AIDS epidemic] in the past. It’s not,” said Cumming.

I’m about one more “and then he came inside me” away from blowing my brains out.
I’m a sex enthusiast, perhaps even a connoisseur on the matter. I peruse publications about sex, participate in deep conversations on the act, and occasionally even engage in the monstrous business. But for fuck’s sake, if I have to read another article about unprotected sex, I’m going to jump off a bridge.

And if you want to get into the spirit of the season, make it one that looks like a wreath. [Medical News Today] Keep reading »
