Amy Borkowsky, who lists her age as "somewhere between Carrie and Samantha," is looking for Mr. Right, and what better way to reach a large pool of potential mates than during the XY's must-see televised event? She's been campaigning on her website SuperBowlSingleGirl hoping to raise approximately $3 million for the ad spot. Borkowsky has so far raised a mere thousand dollars and only a few open slots during the big game remain, but the innovative singleton is hopeful an advertiser might like her cause and feature her in an ad, if she's unable to buy one herself.
If you're an internet user (hey there you!), you've probably seen ads for Adult FriendFinder—they're those banners promising that there are live women in your zip code waiting to have sex with YOU! Now, maybe you've wondered if these women really exist. Turns out they do. In his investigation for Radar, writer Teddy Wayne signed up for AFF with three distinct personalities: a straight man, bisexual woman and gay guy. Most of the his findings are what you'd expect on a casual sex site: profiles include lots of photos of erect cocks, his female profile received more far responses than his male one, and there seems to be way more men than women on the site (despite the fact that AFF says half of its members are women).
The country that brought loopy eyeliner, messy beehive hairdos and people named "Posh" and "Becks" to American culture have finally come up with something reasonable. Let's hope this one gets imported, eh, mate? Sex education will now be obligatory for public school students in Britain, specifically in order to address the teen pregnancy rate, says Schools Minister Jim Knight. You hear that, Bristol Palin? In 1999, Britain, which has the highest teen pregnancy rate in Western Europe, decided to cut the teen pregnancy rate in half by 2010. This is one step in its plan (more details from Tango's Tom Miller here) -- and a brilliant one at that. America, as we all know, is plagued by abstinence-only education, whose inefficacy is proven yet ignored.

Today on Shine a user posted an interesting problem. She has long blond hair that she loves and is proud of, however her boyfriend has told her he prefers brunettes. This stresses her out because she and her sweetie are getting serious and talking marriage, and she's concerned. "If I am going to spend the rest of my life with one man in the whole world, I want that one man to be the most attracted to the features that I have," she writes. When she brought it up with her man he said that her hair color isn't important, but she's still stuck on the issue: "Why spend my life with a guy who is more attracted to a feature that I don't have? It really makes me feel bad when I think about it."
Women in a state of undress tend to think about their "wobbly bits" as Bridget Jones called them. This probably includes one or more of the "trouble area trifecta" spots: stomach, thighs or butt. Men, on the other hand, skip the wobbles and let their gazes go almost immediately to their favorite parts, whether a woman's clothed or naked. Truth Merchants' "Ask A Guy" contributor tells us if a man's into the booty, he'll probably start checking out a woman at her feet and work his way up. If the chest's more his thing, he might look you in the eyes before focusing on the breasts.
The Wasilla Public Library in Alaska is refusing to shelve two books about homosexual relationships for children, Heather Has Two Mommies and Daddy's Roommate. But it's certainly not because the characters in the books are gay, of course. Oh, no -- the town's library director, K.J. Martin-Albright, says the books are “poorly constructed, lacked engaging illustrations and seemed to lack the ability to engage young readers...Anything on the library has to earn its real estate." Riiiight.

American and Chinese researchers working together at a neural research facility in Georgia have discovered that flooding the brain of mice with a particular protein vital to learning and memory retention can selectively erase memory. While the mice are in the process of repeating an activity or encountering a toy they've already seen, simultaneously adding a burst of the protein leaves virtually no memory of the instance orobject. All without otherwise harming brain function.
