Already shared this with colleagues, thought y’all might enjoy as well (I mean, those of ‘y’all’ who aren’t already my colleagues)…
I couldn’t help but share this. Excerpts of PerezHilton’s post ‘Carol Brady Got Crabs From A One Night Stand!‘
As a sex educator, I try to be as stigma-reducing as I can with STIs, but I also want to share what the voices of pop culture are really saying:
“Florence Henderson admitted that she got crabs after having a one night stand with the mayor of New York at the time, John Lindsay.
…She then says that when she went home later that night, she awoke to “little black things” all over her bed and body!!
EWWWWW! So gross!
After an urgent call to her doctor, she was diagnosed with “pubic lice” and was sent a bouquet of flowers and a note of apology from the mayor.
Florence says: “Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata. He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship.”
LOLz! Um, yes! And thank you for the graphic details on your sex life!
Yuck! Carol Brady would have NEVER behaved that way!”
And an important piece about vibrators and airline travel from SFGate:
“If you pack a vibrator, don’t get shaken by TSA
The Transportation Safety Administration, whose job it is to consider fully such matters, has decreed that vibrators are OK. The TSA says whips, chains, leashes, restraints and manacles are OK, too. Any law-abiding citizen has the right to carry any such device onto an airplane…. TSA spokesman Nico Melendez said passengers could save time with a little common sense. Inspectors are doing their job. They are trained professionals and they know a vibrator when they see one….. Carol Queen, the celebrated San Francisco sex expert, lecturer and proprietor of the Good Vibrations chain of sex stores, has traveled the world with her carry-on bags full of vibrators and other paraphernalia. Vibrators, she says, are not the problem. Shame about vibrators is the problem. “There’s no reason to be embarrassed,” said Queen. “If an inspector asks you about it, look [them] in the eye and tell [them] it’s your vibrator.” There isn’t a lot left to say….
“Remember, vibrators have been around longer than airplanes.”
