Facebook has gotten another couple together. The miracle of modern, online social networking has allowed a woman named Kelly Hildebrandt to find a fellow named Kelly Hildebrandt and lil Cupid took it from there. Three weeks after meeting online, the two met in person (after flight from Texas to south Florida). Things went so well that Male Kelly Hildebrandt moved to Florida and they became engaged shortly thereafter. This saves them a trip to the DMV.
There are few rules in this world that you just don't break after a certain age. In addition to not taking a french fry without asking, you do not set up fake online dating profiles for supposed friends of yours. That's identity theft, brother. Dating site hoaxes are taken very seriously, as a Scotsman named Allan Troup just learned. And now he owes his community 240 of community service for that mistake.
A quickie divorce sometimes saves lots of pain down the road. But wedding guests feel a little ripped off. Amy Dickinson of Ask Amy fame is a little bent out of shape that a couple who knew their marriage was heading for an annulment even before the wedding is being intransigent about returning the wedding gifts. The couple is totally out of line, victory to Amy Dickinson.
A Polish couple in Germany could not make it through that crucial first night (not even primae noctis) of marriage before splitting up. On their wedding night, a fight during the reception (involving a knife and an attempted forced haircut) made the couple realize that an annulment was probably a good idea. A divorce and a wedding on the same night is some strange love.
While you can probably imagine what "Air Sex" is, you're probably wrong. It has very little to do with the Mile High Club. It's more like lewd dry-humping meets "air guitar," and it's all the rage. These sexy moves come to us from Japan, so be careful with this new trend.
In weird news about strange love, a prisoner named Dawud Yaduallah is suing the state of New York for failing to treat his Priapism. This brings up an interesting question, when does an erection go from being funny to being dangerous? Also, learn what the acronyms NEB and ED mean... to guys.
A man in Egypt, in a classic Romeo And Juliet scenario, decided that he would rather undergo castration (self-castration) then go into an arranged marriage instead of marrying his sweetheart. While his resolution is almost (almost) commendable, this course of action cannot be recommended. Eunuchs have less fun, it's often been said.
First used by writer Maki Fukasawa, the term "herbivore" is now gaining cultural relevance in reference to asexual Japanese men. Libido seems to becoming a major problem for the Japanese as their reproduction rate is far below replenishing level.
Fine, suffice it to say that people (nay really cool people) are obsessed with the idea of zero gravity copulation. But since someone feels squeamish about turning the space program into a cosmic spring break, it's been agreed that space weddings are a better way to make zero g love happen. Richard Branson is all over this. As are Noah Fulmer and Erin Finnegan and Yuri Malenchenko and Ekaterina Dmitriev.
The Catholic Church has been struggling a bit lately. They seem to be dealing with scandal after scandal and losing some amount of their flock. Miami priest Alberto Cutie was a bright star on the rise. But it's surfaced that the charming Father may have broken his vow of chastity (with an adult woman). Be prepared for a new conversation about whether Catholics should allow priests to be married.
A teacher in the West Yorkshire hamlet of Mytholmroyd has been disciplined (possibly fired) for publishing a book of erotic fiction. It should be noted that Leonora Rustamova's (Ms. Rusty) writing featured some of her students as characters. Parents did not care for this. Not one bit. "Stop! Don't Read This!" has been pulled from the internet but Ms. Rusty is still in trouble.
It turns out that sometimes sperm needs a little pick-me-up to fertilize an egg. The galvanizing (steeling, really) is called capacitation. So, it looks like the guy's end of baby-making isn't just some mechanical process. Also, Doc Morris Pharmacies in Germany have a crazy condom ad that may entice you to take prophylactics a little more seriously.
A class at Vassar College entitled "The Language Of Ladies" failed to make it to it's second lecture. Word on the street is that the course was deemed offensive by some and discontinued. Student-lecturer Daniel Abramson has to be somewhat disappointed. It looks like dudes will have to find some other way to learn talking to women and the sweet art of seduction.
