More Brits Consider Affairs During Snowstorm

Most folks tend to get cozy under blankets, or a Snuggie, and watch a good movie when they get snowed in, but not some Britons. Instead, they arrange extra-marital affairs. IllicitEncounters.com, a website that connects married people with others seeking affairs, reported yesterday that it had received a record number of new profiles over 24 hours during recent wintry weather. The site said more than 2,567 people signed up in the last six days, and most new members were from areas severely hit by the winter weather, like Hampshire, Berkshire, and the West Country. A spokesperson for the site theorizes that many of the people could have been waiting for a time to join when they weren’t under the watch of coworkers or partners. The site has had to hire temporary personnel to cope with the unexpected jump in members. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Denmark Wants You To Have Sex With Its Women!

The Danish tourism board has taken a certain non-traditional approach with attracting visitors to their fertile shores. In this video, Karen casually searches for the tourist father of her baby. She doesn’t remember his name, or really need anything from him; she simply wants to be able to identify a father for her baby. But don’t worry, potential baby-daddies, this lady is no slut. She knows you’re the father (once she finds you) because you are the only one she’s been with in two years. Keep reading »

In Vegas, Of All Places, Nipples Cause A Public Outcry

At the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas (what, your town doesn’t have one?), a public mural that features a pair of exposed breasts and their inevitable nipples has caused a city scandal. Apparently, the painted nips violate a city code that bans the public display of areola in Vegas. (I guess you gotta police that something fierce in the City of Sin, where working girls are always looking for new, more graphic ways to sell their, er, goods). As a result, the (I’m not making this up, people) Ho-Down Mural Project was forced to self-censor, and the museum’s curator, Laura Henkel, covered up the offending areola with some gold star pasties. In fact, the incident is just the latest in a series of similar complaints, as Vegas residents with traditional values butt heads with the results of an increasingly sexualized culture. Apparently, the City of Las Vegas has yet to reconcile being the home of the so-called “Academy of Awards of porn” (which takes place this weekend) and the fact that it can’t stand the sight of a painted lady’s bared breasts.

The Sleep Suit Is A Snuggie For Narcoleptics

I have to say, the first time I set eyes on the Sleep Suit, I knew I had to have it. A Snuggie-like suit that enabled me to fall asleep anywhere? Yes, please! Usually, if you go to sleep, you do it at home, at night, in your bed. Not so with the Sleep Suit! It’s made of stiff, pleated, shock-absorbent EVA foam, which means you can abruptly pass out just about anywhere — at your desk, on a hillside, in a stairwell — and, voilà, you are your own bed! It’s like a cocoon for the nap-happy. I want one stat, dammit. I’ve got some sleeping-in-public to do. [Blogitecture] Keep reading »

Beware If Your Name Begins With The Letter “D”

I know this sounds like some kind of title for a bad horror film, but scientists have discovered that the letter your name begins with can actually affect your lifespan. A study done at Wayne State University looked at the life spans of 10,000 people and concluded that those people whose names began with the letter “D” had a shorter average life span. Even weirder? People whose names started with the letter “A” (that’s me!!) tended to outlive the “D’s” by an average of 10 years. How could this be possible? Psychologists theorize that the “D” peeps feel crappier about themselves because the letter “D” is often associated with academic failure. Consequently, their poor self-esteem makes them more susceptible to illness. Whereas the “A” peeps tend to think they’re the awesomest. I wonder what the deal is with people whose names being with the letter “F”? I shudder to think. My condolences to Deborah, Daniel, Danielle, Dawn, Donald, etc. [Asylum] Keep reading »

The Other Kind Of Snowball

Jeez, it’s like the oldest prank-call trick in the book. How did this obvi oral sex reference get past an investigative journalist? Well, maybe the better question is: How many inches deep is he? [Fark] Keep reading »

Dude Spends Christmas With Fembot Girlfriend

I always say: Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like spending the holidays with your own personal robot lover. As it turns out, I am not alone. Inventor Le Trung shared Christmas gifts, holiday foods, and festive decor with his girlfriend, Aiko, who is also a robot. Trung, who lives in Ontario, designed and built his fembot galpal at a cost of $50,000. As for what was under the Christmas tree, Trung notes, “Aiko is like any woman, she enjoys getting new clothes.” After a holiday dinner shared with Trung’s parents, everyone played board games. At first, Trung reveals, his parents thought his relationship with Aiko was “a bit odd”; now, “they all love Aiko.” Aiko can speak some 13,000 sentences in English and Japanese, so her possible future in-laws were able to converse with her. Unfortunately, the scientist hasn’t figured out how to make Aiko walk yet. She does respond to touch, though: “If you grab or squeeze too hard she will try to slap you,” says Trung. Good thing she can’t walk. She might run right out the door. [Instapundit] Keep reading »

The Japanese Super Snuggie Will Turn You Into A Human Larva

The Japanese two-legged sleeping bag is amazing, not because it’s a revolutionary design, but because someone thought people would actually want it. There’s no way any infomercial spokesperson would touch this thing. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
