Entire uncensored Playboy library, old and new, coming to iPad

Facebook's Gaydar: is it accurate?

Several news sources have started reporting on a 2007 research project by a group of MIT students who found they could accurately predict Facebook users' sexual preferences based on the people they were friends with.

Sex 2.0: It's not just a conference, it's an attitude

A little more than a year after my last "regular" post here, I'm back to write a monthly/semi-monthly/whenever-inspiration-hits column about Sex 2.0-related stuff. What's Sex 2.0, you ask? Why, it's the totally awesome conference I'm organizing!
