Proceed with caution to the panty-dropping pantry,
No joy in bloombergville! Nanny Bloomberg shut down the free Trojan’s Vibrator giveaway.
Hundreds of people lined up for their chance to receive a vibrator, but the gathering quickly grew flaccid as city officials came in and told promoters to shut down due to the big crowds.
The hot dog carts had a sign that read, “relish the moment.”
Trojans was giving them away at BlogHer12, and were a huge success shaking up the place. The two guys manning the booth were young (very young – do their moms know they do this?) and very cute.
The rumor was that an enterprising BlogHer attendee stole a case – probably to sell on eBay.
It was the most popular booth, outdoing the free make-up, shoulder massages, manicures, and Jimmy Dean’s Mr Sun.
Trojans gave away 4,000 at BlogHer. They’ll be back in Manhattan today, from “mid-town to the meat packing district.”
Let the good times roll!
In a Communist country, with sex tourism, and where your children belong to the state, the dictator’s daughter talks about the latest plan (h/t Gates of Vienna),
Cuba embraces Dutch-style sex education
Cuba can learn a thing or two from Dutch-styled sex education. That’s the view of Mariele Castro Espín, daughter of Cuban President Raúl Castro, espoused in an interview with Radio Netherlands Worldwide.
Mariela Castro is director of the Cuban National Center for Sex Education, a government-funded body, whose aim is the development of the development of a culture of sexuality that is “full, pleasurable and responsible, as well as to promote the full exercise of sexual rights.” She will travel to the Netherlands in the near future to for discussions with institutions and government bodies related to sex education.
Cuba is a top destination for sex tourism. Maybe Mariela will have the whorehouses display their goods on shop windows as they do in Amsterdam.
Look, when the CNN guy asks you directly, “Was it [the photo] from you, or not?”, and a simple “No” would have sufficed, it’s not a good idea at all to call the guy a jackass – particularly, as it turns out, the guy is CNN’s Congressional producer.
Another important point from this press conference is that Weiner himself is the one who said his Twitter/Facebook accounts had been hacked. That he’s changed to saying it’s a prank and a distraction does not alter the fact that hacking is a crime and should be investigated. He has not requested an investigation, as CNN’s Dana Bash points out.
“Wow! Those blogs sound like, reporting!”
dodging easily answerable questions is definitely not the way to make it all go away. For example, something like, “No, that was not my penis. I know this because I didn’t take a photo of my penis,” would have been a perfectly fine response. The mainstream press, at least, would be satisfied.
Evading questions, however, is a strategy most often utilized by people with something to hide, and will only further pique the media’s interest.
Since he’s a Democrat, I speculate that he’ll have a press conference with the bravely smiling Mrs. Weiner at his side.
After reading Gerard’s post, I’m done with the subject.
Not on the wiener, but on Weiner,
Weiner is not one to talk about conflict of interest. In the 2009 spending bill Congressman Weiner sponsored $18.3 million in earmarks for 22 groups and projects, over $500,000 of those earmarks went to campaign contributors.
Now, that is the real scandal.

College Condemns Classroom Sex Show
Northwestern University reversed course on Thursday and condemned a live demonstration of sex in a classroom, after defending the act earlier in the week.
“Many members of the Northwestern community are disturbed by what took place on our campus,” Northwestern President Morton Schapiro said in a statement. “So am I.” He said the university was launching an investigation.
Maybe some of the students in attendance filmed the “lecture“, or should we call it “show and tell”?
The professor who came up with this trick is complaining,
Prof. Bailey, a tenured professor of psychology, said the live demonstration was part of a larger series of events he had arranged “at considerable investment of my time, for which I receive no compensation from Northwestern University.”
But he does it entirely in the interest of science and learning, doesn’t he?
I wonder how well-heeled are the alumni – a.k.a. those “Many members of the Northwestern community” – who complained loudly enough for Schapiro to listen.
Northwestern University defends after-class live sex demonstration. If you go to the link you’ll get the details on an after-lecture demonstration held by a guy named Ken Melvoin-Berg who was paid “between $300 to $500″ by Northwestern U to do a sex show
Melvoin-Berg said he met Prof. Bailey through a swinging couple who previously spoke to the class. Melvoin-Berg runs the “Weird Chicago Red Light District Sex Tour,” which has participants playing games like “spot the ho” as they travel the city looking for prostitutes. He also teaches “Networking for Kinky People,” a 3-hour version of the one hour lecture he gave at Northwestern
Prof. Bailey is doing this research on a purely academic basis, or so he would like you to believe.
Melvoin-Berg said, “I did mention this was going to be the best money their parents had spent on their education,” but that depends on who you ask. I guess the “well-rounded education” has a different meaning than it did when I was in college.
While the sex show was unexpected, Northwestern U charges $50,000/yr tuition per student. Prof. John Michael Bailey’s sexuality class has nearly 600 students this quarter.
With a course that popular, you can bet the farm that Northwestern U isn’t going to take the sexuality class off the roster.
They might even get auditors, too.
Political science professor and blogger James Joyner comments,
These students are adults and attendance at the “demonstration” were non-compulsory. But I can’t for the life of me figure out what the intellectual value of this exercise was supposed to be.
UPDATE, Friday 4 March,
Northwestern changes its mind about the sex show
Pigging out for better sex,
Not satisfied with plundering public coffers and getting into a constitutional crisis, Cristina Fernandez took the weekend off with her husband former president Néstor Kirchner and after a meal of pork, revealed her results to the press:
Pork better for sex than Viagra?
Argentina’s president recommended pork as an alternative to Viagra Wednesday, saying she spent a satisfying weekend with her husband after eating barbecued pork.
The botoxed, face-lifted Cristina explained,
“I’ve just been told something I didn’t know; that eating pork improves your sex life … I’d say it’s a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra,” President Cristina Fernandez said to leaders of the pig farming industry.
She said she recently ate pork and “things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true.”
Of course she didn’t go into the details why the push for pork,
Argentines are the world’s biggest per capita consumers of beef, but the government has sought to promote pork as an alternative in recent years due to rising steak prices and as a way to diversify the meat industry.
And why are beef prices rising? As I explained last February,
In 2006, Argentinean farmers turned away from beef, both in response to the rise in soybean and other commodity prices, but also because of export caps imposed as an anti-inflationary measure by then-president Nestor Kirchner – the current president’s husband. However, not all farmers switched crops. Some farmers sold their holdings in Argentina and moved to Uruguay in search of lower taxes.
Just don’t ask the Argentinian cattle ranchers what Cristina and Néstor can go do with themselves.
Yes, fresh from the Garden State. It figures.
NJ has been a hub of technology incubators for several years, which makes me wonder where this got hatched:
A New Jersey-based artificial intelligence engineer is now marketing the world’s first sex robot, which includes a laptop even when she can’t lap dance, and has multiple personalities:
The anatomically-correct robot, who can even snore, has an articulated skeleton that can move like a person but can’t walk or independently move its limbs.
There is Wild Wendy, who is outgoing and adventurous, Frigid Farrah, who is reserved and shy, a young unnamed doll with a naïve personality, “matriarchal kind of caring” Mature Martha and S & M Susan, who is geared for more adventurous types.
