The sex questionnaire was sent out to 1,000 adults in France and came back with results that 76 percent of couples experience libido problems that affect their relationships. Such results contradict earlier studies, including one conducted six months ago, that contends that 40 percent of French men think they’re the best lovers in the world.
Of course, those French kissers might not want to give up all hope just yet, because the pharmaceutical company has announced plans to launch an “information campaign” aimed at improving their sex lives. Hmmm, wonder what the French word is for “Viagra?”
Meanwhile, the Washington Post ran a story yesterday debunking other myths, namely those surrounding prostitution—and the influence of Craigslist on sex trafficking. The world’s oldest profession, the article proclaims, is an ever-changing and misunderstood industry—and it’s not going to be influenced by the removal of Craigslist’s erotic services ads.
Sudhir Venkatesh, who penned the piece, found that the hand Craigslist’s adult personals had in sex trafficking is “exaggerated” and over 80 percent of men in New York who employed the online classified ad site never actually finalized the deal with the women they contacted.
Moving from a myth to a hit, this weekend’s Video Music Awards featured a full GBLT military escort, and a touching ballad toasting “the a-holes.” Comedienne and sex-taper Chelsea Handler hosted the awards show, dealing plenty of saucy quips and satirical spoofs, at one point dipping in a hot tub with the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore, then popping up preggers after the commercial break. The ever-brilliant Lady Gaga won the Video of the Year for “Bad Romance,” and showed her support for gay and lesbian troops by consorting with four service members who had been ousted thanks to the now-on-its-way-out “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
