So Last Week .57

This week’s so last week, isn’t just sex news you may have missed. It’s also got menstruation and the MPAA. Plus, is the birth control playing with more than fertility; Julian Assange: condom-less romp or rape, and do you know the horizontal rule?

  • Two films. Two similar sex scenes. Two different ratings. How the MPAA’s decision (once again) on ‘Blue Valentine’ “unmasks a taboo in our culture — that an honest portrayal of a relationship is more threatening than a sensationalized one.” Well said, Michelle Williams, well said. (LATimes)

  • Toilet codes for menstrual cycles. In Norway, a red bracelet means a woman is menstruating… at work. (Alternet)

  • Wikileaks and the case of the broken condom. (Suite101)
  • Carpe Datem. Half-night Stand. The vocabulary of Generation Sex. (Huffpost)
  • The divine secrets of the ta-ta sisterhood. Breast cancer, boobs and nipple tattoos. (Salon)

  • Straight Male Pornstars need love too. A fleshbot stunt. (Fleshbot)
