When Can You Get The Female Viagra?

When Can You Get The Female Viagra?

I have come to pump you up! Will older women finally be able to take a testosterone-laden sex patch, the female equivalent of Viagra? Only in Europe, as the sex patch Intrinsa may not be available in the U.S. for some time, reports the Wall Street Journal. Procter & Gamble has sought approval for the female sex patch since 1999, but regulators are concerned that the increased amount of testosterone could up an older woman's cancer risk.

Obama Inspires Sex Acts

Obama Inspires Sex Acts

Barack and Michelle Obama weren't the only ones having sex last night. Bloggers are proclaiming that nine months from now we'll see a surge in Obama Babies: children conceived through celebration sex. Across the country (or at least outside Love Buzz's apartment) strangers were hugging and kissing, cars were honking their horns and people were setting off fireworks. Lovers could moan all they wanted, content in the knowledge that their nookie noises would not be overheard.

Ellen and Portia Marriage Illegal?

Ellen and Portia Marriage Illegal?

With the passage of California's ban on gay marriage, parents around the state can rest assured that their children finally are safe. Or, so supporters of Proposition 8, which will adjust the state's definition of marriage to exclude same-sex couples, want them to think. For months before yesterday's vote, pro-ban messaging called on voters to "do it for the children." What this means on a micro level is that Ellen DeGeneres, darling of so many Ellen-watching households who might oppose gay marriage on a macro level, may no longer be legally married to the love of her life, Portia de Rossi. Ellen is, in a sense, America's gateway gay. For those who once considered homosexuality something people "chose" to do in big cities or secular environments in other parts of the world, suddenly here was a funny, lovable, witty lesbian right in their living rooms. Even children watch her show with no reported harm done!

Chivalry Is Dead –– And So Are These Teen Vampires

Chivalry Is Dead –– And So Are These Teen Vampires

What surprised me, a feminist, about vampire young adult novels? It was hot how both young men in the books I read were so chivalrous to their ladies. I don't just mean the "life or death" protection. The boys opened car doors, pulled out chairs and even defended their ladies' honor in front of schoolyard bullies. Both of these vampires were teenagers in different centuries and practice centuries-old gender roles. Real teenage boys? Chivalry is dead, my friends, and it can't decide who should pay for dinner.

Five Things Barack And Michelle Will Say Tonight

Before they make love tonight (and we're assuming they will), Barack Obama will have some choice words for his wife, and we can only imagine what they are. Actually, we have imagined them. Here are the five things Barack might say to Michelle as they get ready to do the nasty.

Are Smelly Socks Good For A Relationship?

Are Smelly Socks Good For A Relationship?

Lemondrop's Bediquette column today discusses the comfort—and horror—of familiarity. According to a new poll, romance lasts exactly two years, six months and 25 days, after which time couples stop trying and start leaving the toilet seat up (79% of men married 10+ years do this), hording the remote (75% of both sexes wouldn't relinquish control when asked nicely) and forgetting their wedding anniversary (actually, this happens by the third year of marriage to 83% of couples).

Can Racy Television Lead To Teen Pregnancy?

Can Racy Television Lead To Teen Pregnancy?

On Monday, Yahoo! News reported a strong link between teen pregnancies and sexy TV shows. The article refers to a groundbreaking study that was released in the November issue of Pediatrics and explains the connection between teenagers and the racy television shows that they watch. Can anyone take a wild guess at what super-sexy shows the study is alluding to? Here's a hint: sex is actually in the title. Obviously Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, Samantha Jones, and Charlotte York are four fictional characters, but they are all a part of a very realistic, controversial show--a show that is now on cable TV every night. Though it is censored, Sex and the City revolves around, well, sex. Therefore, when flipping through the channels, an impressionable teenager may just stop surfing when he/she stumbles upon an almost fully nude Samantha receiving oral sex.

Hey, Palin: About That Prank Call From "Sarkozy"

Hey, Palin: About That Prank Call From "Sarkozy"

I realized Sarah Palin is not-too-bright when she actually believed the prank caller, "Monsieur Sarkozy," when he said his wife was quite jealous that he was calling her. Why is this so hard to believe? The French President's new wife is Carla Bruni, one of the most beautiful women in the world.
