Want to learn something shocking? Based on a recent UNICEF global survey of household attitudes towards domestic violence, an average of half the female population polled believes it's OK for a man to beat his wife under specific circumstances. And that's the average. Read on to learn more.
I store my secret and satisfying lover in the hidden compartment of an ottoman in my bathroom. Towels are piled high over it, and inside I store all my overflow of beauty and hair products. Deep within that pile is a compartment I stash my "toys." For the past month, I've been finding my vibrator with the batteries dead and always left in the "on" position. I like to conserve energy, so I know I NEVER would have wasted a AA battery in a recession with an amateur move like that. I didn't have the guts to confront my husband, so instead I've spent the past thirty days bitching to my girlfriends about my husband's alleged jealousy over my affair with "Buzz Light My Year on Fire."
Weeks after Rihanna and Chris Brown's names became (potentially forever) linked to domestic violence, the couple has apparently rekindled their romance, according to People.com. An unnamed source told the site that the efforts to reconnect have been "mutual" and that the young pair "care for each other." Feelings aside, the world will watch in wonderment as Rihanna takes back a man who allegedly beat her on the night of February 8. Brown was arrested for making criminal threats, but charges have not been pressed.

Boy George, musical genius, evidently has some weird sexual predilections that keep on getting him in trouble with Johnny Constabulary. This time around the Karma Chameleon restrained a gigolo (male escort) and thumped him with a chain. The law smiles not on false imprisoning and battering manwhores. On top of that, Galapagos turtle George is not having an easy time reproducing. It's been a tough week for Georges.
Unexpected Facebook message the other night: an old friend from middle school delivered a thumpin' to her husband and was arrested for assault and battery. I don't know the circumstances at all -- not that that really matters. It's domestic violence and it's wrong and it's not the way for a couple to solve a conflict. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit I am fascinated.
