It's almost impossible to comprehend that less than 100 years ago sending information about birth control through the mail was considered not only illicit and obscene, but was illegal as per the Comstock Act of 1873. It wasn't until the 1930s that doctors were allowed to distribute information and contraceptives across state lines. And when the pill first went on sale, it was illegal to practice birth control in some parts of the country. It took a Supreme Court decision in 1965 to strike that down. Read More
In cities across the world speed dating is a popular way to date people- speedily. The general idea behind it is to get to know a number of people on the surface in one place in a set amount of time that is organized thru answering/sharing questions that are telling of your basic personality/likes and dislikes. And probs the best indicator- see how your physical chemistry gels.
For example- A quick eavesdrop on an already in progress-'Speed Dating Night at Rollo’s in NYC'- titled “Get your speed date on-2 for one coors light”:Paul: ...That’s a nice name. Read More

And that time the condom broke. Or I was careless. Or maybe it was something more sinister. Whatever happened last night, help is only as far away as the nearest Internet connection. At this nifty web site, you can simply plug in your ZIP code, and out shoots a list of options where you can pick up emergency contraception. I even tested it by plugging in obscure ZIP codes from my past, and not-2-late.com dutifully replied with a list of nearby resources.
A little clicking around on the web site however, started to weird me out. First, the immediate bounce to a Princeton web site. Read More

While being whisked away by the cops for assaulting and harrassing a limo driver, raging cyclist Perzeus Forte flashed his bad-boy good looks at the camera, officially smashing the hearts of the ladies at the BUST Magazine office, much like the windshield of the limo driver that he also smashed.
Forte's passionate uprising is the result of being clipped by limo driver Darr Mohammed while delivering packages on his bike. With his brute strength alone, Forte crushed the limo's windshield, shattered the side window, and ripped the shirt off Mohammed's back. Read More

My feminist organization hands out condoms (just the regular Durex ones) all the time on campus and one time we ran out and had to send someone on a condom run to get more. Well, in the meantime some generous soul saw our predicament and whipped 12 Magnums out of his backpack and donated it to our cause. (Why did he have 12 Magnums in his backpack on Monday morning on campus at 10am? No one will ever know but it gives a new meaning to being prepared.) Anyway, the second we put those Magnums out boys started swarming us like vultures to get one. Read More

It's generally accepted that childbirth is a stressful process. That’s why a woman in labor often opts to have a doula by her side—to nurture her during intense bouts of pain and emotion. But what about when a woman decides to terminate a pregnancy? Nearly three years ago, a small group of reproductive-rights activists came up with the concept of offering doula support for the “entire spectrum of pregnancy”—including abortion—and created The Doula Project to do so.

Peggy Wilkins has a secret stash: an apartment-sized collection of Playboy magazines. Her love affair started at age 13, when she had to have an issue with teen detective Nancy Drew—wearing a trench coat and nothing else—on the cover. After her mother told her she wouldn't purchase the magazine, Peggy did what any real fan would do—she stole it.Since that day, Peggy has amassed every single issue of Playboy, including a copy of the (extremely rare) premiere issue with Marilyn Monroe on the cover, signed by Hef himself.

Standard DOUBLE-Page Spread.At first when I saw the pics of Senator Scott Brown doing his best Burt Reynolds impression in Cosmo, I was like, "whatevs, of course this won't be a big deal- he's a dude". It didn't shock me; it also didn't shock my grandmother or Scott Brown's grandmother for that matter- "My Grandmother saw it. She laughed", he informed Barbara Walters, Sunday in his interview on ABC's 'This Week.' Jane's Addiction told me in 1988- "Nothing's Shocking" and this still holds up today. Read More
Thanks for the heads up, China....But, if I could explain the calf pain, can I then use it on my calf pain? Let me know. We love Babeland vibrators regardless.Note to self: Pick up double A batteries. Can't bear the shame of using my parent's living room TV-remote batteries another day.
