Warning: this post kinda contains a spoiler about the movie, but chillax, you'll live! I saw the teen film Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist over the weekend. The first half of the film was everything I wanted: Kat Dennings' (Norah) amazing, amazing lips; schmoopy Michael Cera (Nick), who I just wanted to give big mama bear squeeze to; a great supporting role from a busted-ass car even worse than the '83 VW I used to drive; fun music. Then this weird sub-plot about Norah never having had an orgasm before appeared halfway through the film and I was, like, "Whaaaaaaaaat?"
When you break off an engagement, who gets the ring? The New York Times investigated this question over the weekend, interviewing people who went through broken engagements, a law professor, an etiquette expert and lawyers who have handled who-gets-the-ring cases. The answer? There isn't one; it depends on the couple and on what you think an engagement ring represents.

Those in search of a "a place for people to rediscover non-sexual touch and affection" could find it last Friday in New York City at Polyamorous NYC's Cuddle Party, one of a number of events that made up the 8th annual Poly Pride Weekend.

When we first clicked on to Eve 101 we had a moment or recognition: these ladies are like us! On their about us page they describe their site as "a place where open minds and honest opinions congregate." They want to be straightforward and real, and from what this Love Buzzer has seen, they're doing just that.
Starting sometime in the 1950s, when female contraception was virtually nonexistent, legend has it some inventive women would shake a bottle of Coca-Cola and open it into themselves after having to prevent pregnancy. While this seems as effective a contraception method as standing on one's head is to getting pregnant, a Boston ob-gyn professor put the soft drink to the test in the early '80s and found it does indeed kill some sperm.

You don't have to be former Gov. Eliot Spitzer's $1,000-a-night "friend" Ashley Dupre to be fretful of how Wall Street's plummet is effecting one sector of working girls: Slate.com wonders "What the Financial Crisis Means For High End Prostitutes?" But what author Sudhir Venkatesh (who wrote the memoir, Gang Leader For a Day, which I'm told is incredible) discovered about high-end sex workers in hard economic times may surprise you: many pink-slipped former captains of industry (also known as Big Swinging D*cks) don't want sex; they just need the proverbial shoulder to cry on. Comfort, not condoms.
Back in September posts popped up on Craig's Lists job boards in various cities soliciting a "Sarah Palin look alike for adult themed video production." Yesterday The Daily News reported that Hustler was behind the ads and this morning Radar published the actual first scene of the film, which you can read here. (In a subsequent post Radar swears that the script is "100 percent genuine and not in any way made up.")
