We're all in favour of this: the Doting Husbands society in Japan has declared Beloved Wives Day in order to get Japanese men to show more appreciation of their wives. Reuters reports: "A group of Japanese men hoping to encourage the nation's legions of workaholic husbands to head home early and show their wives some appreciation have proclaimed "Beloved Wives Day".
The group, which calls itself the "Japan Doting Husbands Association", urged men to get home by 8 p.m. and say thanks to their wives for all they do.
"Many men can't put their feelings of gratitude towards their wives into words. Work is number one for them," the non-profit group says on its Web site. "This attitude is putting Japanese marriages under great pressure."" [Read the full story]. Indeed. Less working, more lovin'!
An oldie but goodie this one - from Expatica in May 2005: "Dutch people love automated machines: you can get cash, food, tooth brushes and condoms from the wall. But the southern Dutch city of Tilburg has gone one step further: a machine stocked with vibrators.
The city council's building inspectorate was initially sceptical about the desirability of the machine, news agency ANP reported, but gave it the go ahead after it was made child-proof.
It's contents can now only be purchased with "plastic money", meaning bank and credit cards usually used in an automated teller machine, or automaat in Dutch.
Hung on the outer wall of a café on the Laarstraat, the machine goes into operation on Friday. Apart from vibrators, the machine has a range of sex toys, lingerie and lubricant."
Brilliant. Get your toys without any fuss - just like with Lovehoney.
Sex can be a bit dangerous for your health, according to Scotland's Daily Record: "One in three people say they regularly suffer injuries during sex. And carpet burns have left two in five aching after a night of passion, according to a survey for sex shop chain Ann Summers. One in 10 have made an insurance claim after wrecking furniture as they canoodled with a lover. A third caused some I damage to their home -I but most are too red-faced to make a claim. The bedroom is where I most mishaps occur - with people knocking over lamps, pulling down curtains, smashing vases and breaking beds - said the poll of 2000 people." [Read the full story]. Wonder if we should do a similar poll amongst our multitude of Orgasm Army sex toy reviewers for injuries of passion sustained while using sex toys? (OA is still getting ready to be unveiled, and you can still sign up if you fancy being a sex toy reviewer...)

Australia's The Chaser finds out that Michael Jackson licensed a perfume range under the name Michael Jackson Mystery - but the scent came in distinctly dildo-shaped bottles. Apparently the perfume was only released in the Netherlands and then mysteriously disappeared. Can't think why... [Read the full story at The Chaser - it's at the page bottom]
New Scientist: "Got some public speaking to do? Here's a tip to keep stress at bay: have sex beforehand. But make sure it's penetrative sex - the magic vanishes if you pursue other forms of sexual gratification.
Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of Paisley, UK, compared the impact of different sexual activities on blood pressure when a person later experiences acute stress. For a fortnight, 24 women and 22 men kept diaries of how often they engaged in penile-vaginal intercourse (PVI), masturbation or partnered sexual activity excluding intercourse. After, the volunteers underwent a stress test involving public speaking and mental arithmetic out loud.
Volunteers who'd had PVI but none of the other kinds of sex were least stressed, and their blood pressure returned to normal faster than those who'd only masturbated or had non-coital sex. Those who abstained had the highest blood-pressure response to stress (Biological Psychology, vol 71, p 214)." [Read the full story]
