Sex News Round Up

Sex News Round Up

From NPR:
Polygamy Cafe Feeds the Hungry and Curious
“The Merry Wives Cafe, located in Hilldale, Utah, is owned and operated by polygamist group members with a sense of business, humor and public relations. The cafe opened last year to give locals and travelers a place to eat. The owners also opened it as a way to gently confront polygamy’s battered image. It is not immediately obvious that the cafe has any connection to polygamy, though to sharp diners, there are clues.”


“Diners looking closely at the decades-old family portraits on the café walls will notice a common theme: a single patriarch, multiple wives and multitudes of kids.

And then there’s the café’s name and logo. “The Merry Wives” is borrowed from Shakespeare, and the logo depicts three cooks, all women and, presumably, plural wives.”

The idea of multiple partner marriages doesn’t bother me. It does seem unfair that the Morman polygamists only have the one husband and many wives version. If they’re going to have that I think they should have the one wife and many husbands version as well.

From Reuters:
Icelandic museum offers long and short of male organ
“Hjartarson is founder and owner of the Icelandic Phallological Museum, which offers visitors from around the world a close-up look at the long and the short of the male reproductive organ.

His collection, which began in 1974 with a single bull’s penis that looked something like a riding crop, now boasts 261 preserved members from 90 species.”

I wonder if the museum has a gift shop. Think of the cool postcards they could sell!

From CNN:
Woman pleads guilty in Spitzer probe
” Temeka Rachelle Lewis, who worked as a booking agent for the Emperor’s Club VIP, is the first defendant to admit guilt in the case that led to the resignation of New York’s crusading Democratic governor after just 14 months in office.

She made a brief court appearance in a plea bargain that obligates her to turn over records, testify before a grand jury, if asked, and answer any questions investigators may have about her role in arranging dates between Emperor’s Club working girls and the agency’s deep-pocketed clients.”


“Prosecutors have refused to say whether they are contemplating charges against Spitzer, who was New York’s attorney general for eight years before he was elected governor.”

I doubt Spitzer will get charged.

From the New York Times:
California Supreme Court Overturns Gay Marriage Ban
“The California Supreme Court overturned a voter-approved gay marriage ban Thursday in a ruling that would make the nation’s largest state the second one to allow gay and lesbian weddings.

The justices released the 4-3 decision, saying that domestic partnerships are not a good enough substitute for marriage in an opinion written by Chief Justice Ron George. Justices Joyce Kennard, Kathryn Werdegar and Carlos Moreno joined the majority.”

This is the best news of the week!
