The straight-laced government of communist-run Vietnam, where pornographic Web sites are banned, plans to offer downloadable movies on an Internet site to educate married couples about healthy sex, a newspaper said on Thursday.
The official English-language Vietnam News quoted Khuat Thu Hong, Deputy Director of the Institute for Social Development, as saying "an orthodox sex Web site" would help couples learn more about "healthy sexual intercourse."
Hong cited cases of married couples who had not had sex for a year, a rising divorce rate and rampant prostitution as reasons to publicize more information about sex. [Reuters]
Pity the British government doesn't follow suit - although there's no lack of information you can get hold of about better sex if you want. Because the more you know, the better the sex with be. And if your love life's in the doldrums - a year without sex? Eek! - watching one of our ace Better Sex DVDs and reading one of our brilliant better sex books can be a revelation to put the spark back into your relationship.
"Fancy sex on a fishing boat? Then visit the Lake Balaton resort, say Hungary's authorities in a recently launched campaign aimed at attracting young people to its main lake resort.
The tourism authority is sending around an email with an internet link http://abalatoninyar.fw.hu/, leading viewers to a short cartoon film which features a young blonde woman having sex with a married man on a fishing boat on the lake.
The film, accompanied by a popular song from the 1980s, shows the tourist hiding his wedding ring while in bed with the woman. It also shows her wowing him after taking off her bra." [Reuters]
Er… Blimey. I bet they'll be getting some classy visitors…
Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"We first realised we were into ball gags when I was spanking Louise in the middle of a public wood. Obviously there's a risk of being found out (part of the appeal) but to quieten her down (and to add to the risk), I bought her this gag. We went for the black version (somehow seemed less obvious than its colourful sisters) and it hasn't let us down…"

Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"I am very sceptical about these products but saw the free sample offer and went what the hell, I'll try it! I tried this in different 2 situations, after reading the rather scarey blurb about how it might feel like burning and stuff, I decided to give it a shot anyway. The first time started as waving the little packet at my partner. Now he has a pretty low libido but when a new sex toy or product enters the house then he perks up! And so we put it to the test the day it arrived in the post…"

Orgasm Army is a new (as far as I can tell) Web site devoted to reviews of all things sexual. There are lots of reviews of sex toys and bondage gear on there, and also some message boards with deliciously explict questions and, dare I say it, problems. One for the erotic bookmarks folder…
Picture the scene: after a night of mind-blowing sex with your man, you wake up hornier than Jenna Jameson wielding a G-spot wand and ready for another rampant session. There's only one problem. You've slept late and have to be in work in 5 minutes! So what's a girl to do? Forsake a cleansing hot shower to have fast, dirty sex? Or dive out of bed, desperate in the hope you won't be thinking about oral sex and reverse cowgirl positions all day?
For those of us who need our morning orgasm without running the risk of getting fired, there's a simple but sizzling solution: the Mini Rabbit! All the fashionistas among you will adore this little cutie, made from a funky, vibrant blue jelly.
There's nothing hornier than a session of hanky spanky to punish an unruly lover! If you're fed up of your man paying more attention to the TV than you, or you're sick of watching your girlfriend get a bit too friendly with your rugby-playing mates, it's time to crack out the spanking paddle…
If any of my lovers are naughty, I usually find that a good spanking of their bottom with my paddle will have them begging for forgiveness.
Take Sasha, for example. She was a university fling I occasionally 'ate out' with during my first year in student halls. Every time we went for a meal, Sash would get incredibly naughty by the time we got to the desert course. I don't know whether it was an overwhelming craving for sweet food that tipped her over the edge, or maybe she was just one of those girls who got off on public displays of sexual intent, but Sash would get visibly horny when it came to choosing something sweet.
It didn't matter where we were, what we had eaten or who we were with, Sash would always start squirming in her chair, trying to fondle me under the table with her shoeless feet and generally declaring to the entire restaurant exactly where she wanted to drizzle her white chocolate Belgian dip.
Of course, such displays of deviant behaviour had to be punished!
It's official - sex toys are as old as the human race. The BBC has the scoop: A sculpted and polished phallus found in a German cave is among the earliest representations of male sexuality ever uncovered, researchers say.
The 20cm-long, 3cm-wide stone object, which is dated to be about 28,000 years old, was buried in the famous Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm in the Swabian Jura.
The prehistoric "tool" was reassembled from 14 fragments of siltstone.
Its life size suggests it may well have been used as a sex aid by its Ice Age makers, scientists report.
"In addition to being a symbolic representation of male genitalia, it was also at times used for knapping flints," explained Professor Nicholas Conard, from the department of Early Prehistory and Quaternary Ecology, at Tübingen University.
"There are some areas where it has some very typical scars from that," he told the BBC News website.
Note to gentlemen: Do not try to split flints with your todgers. Thank you. For everyone else, get yourselves the most modern and lovely dildos direct from Lovehoney - we don't have stone ones, but we do have glass dildos and metal dildos if you're after something a bit different. Just make sure you don't forget your dildo…

Not only can you join the mass masturbation fun in London that is Masturbate-A-Thon, you can also be on the telly! From the Meeejaa Guardian:
Channel 4 is to bring mass public masturbation to the small screen.
The broadcaster - once led by Michael Grade, dubbed "pornographer in chief" by the Daily Mail - has commissioned a documentary about the UK's first "masturbate-a-thon" as part of a series of programmes dubbed "Wank week", MediaGuardian.co.uk can reveal.
In what must surely be one of the summer's more bizarre events, hundreds of people are expected to gather in a hall in central London on August 5 to pleasure themselves in aid of charity.
The organiser of the event, the San Francisco-based Centre for Sex and Culture, has run mass masturbation events in the US for the past five years to raise money for safe sex groups and plans to replicate the formula in the UK.
Cameras from independent production company Zig Zag, which made Essex Boys for ITV1, will follow the organisers and participants for a 60-minute film, which has the working title of Wank-a-thon. It is expected to air on Channel 4 towards the end of the year.
The event will encourage Londoners - both male and female - to sign up sponsors and head to Clerkenwell in order to masturbate in front of hundreds of others.
There's an official website dedicated to the Masturbate-A-Thon in London as well, which gives complete details of how to take part - you can bring your favourite sex toys and lube and have an attempt at breaking the current record of seven and half hours of continuous masturbating. And of course, it's all in aid of charity. Fantastic.
