All Headline News: A museum in Austria has put on display a condom made from pig intestine. The Tirolean County Museum said it is the oldest surviving condom in the world.
Museum curators said the reusable condom dates back to 1640. It is complete with the original users manual that is written in Latin.
In the manual, users are advised to soak the condom in warm milk before using to avoid contracting any diseases.
Ew! (Heh - see what we did there? Milk, ewe… forget it). We'd certainly advise you avoid antique condoms and instead get hold of the latest and greatest condoms available to humankind - no warm milk required.
LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Robbie Williams has extended an open invitation to a fan known as 'blonde slag' to come along to any of his concerts and have sex with him.
The singer has been the subject of heated debate on popular website myspace.com among fans who claim they have bedded him on his current 'Close Encounters' world tour.
Robbie, who is alleged to have slept with a bevy of beauties in between shows, insists he has never met most of the girls comparing notes but insists he would like to.
He told Britain's Radio 1: "I've heard about this Swedish girl who has been rating me on Myspace. If she wants to come along any of my shows then she is welcome. I think she is calling herself 'blonde slag'. But, you know, if she's going to talk about it then we might as well do it!"
So ladies - anyone enterprising enough to set up a MySpace profile under the name "Blonde Slag" can bag Robbie. Allegedly.
Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"I've used vibes before in the past, but was never really into them until just recently when hubby bought me the Tracey Cox Supersex Rabbit Vibe, which is my first rabbit. It's a pretty looking pink rabbit vibe and this helps. Because I don't like ugly looking vibes.
It's powerful vibe and on my first time of using it, it brought me to orgasm within a minute, now that is fast! I also love the fact that it is quiet, and this is so important especially because we have kids…!"

We mentioned before that Love Island's Sophie Anderton has been pining for her vibrator. Now poor Sophie's finally snapped: "Sex starved Sophie Anderton threatened to quit ITV's Love Island if producers didn't get her a vibrator. The 29-year-old lingerie model - who said she could go without sex for six months if she had a vibrator - yesterday demanded a sex aid. The stroppy sex-kitten yelled: "I'm really frustrated. Can we be supplied with vibrators? I said if I can abstain from drink and drugs, I can abstain from sex -the problem is my energy levels are so high." The former Gossard bra girl packed a £200 sex aid, but was banned from taking her suitcase with her. She told the others: "I should've brought my vibrator. It's a silent one called The Bone and it's amazing. We need the public to vote in vibrators for the girls."
Sounds like Sophie is one of those discerning girls that only uses designer sex toys - and naturally Lovehoney has a whole selection of top quality luxury sex toys that would keep even Ms Anderton happy.

AP - Japanese carmaker Nissan said Friday it has pulled a raunchy commercial starring "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall from New Zealand television after complaints over its content.
Cattrall, who plays sex-obsessed, promiscuous Samantha Jones in the hugely successful U.S. series, appears in the ad purring with excitement about Nissan's new sedan.
"Why didn't you tell me it was so big, I just wasn't prepared for it?" she gushes. "The all-new Nissan Tiida makes you feel really, really, really good inside."
She tells a salesman: "Ah! That was amazing. Absolutely fabulous! I mean the great body and the way you moved it." [read full article]
The divine Ms Cattrall seems to have become the female equivalent to Finbarr Saunders… still, if they get Sex And The City involved in promoting their new cars, what did they expect? Thousands of women enjoy Sex And The City sex toys as well as the show's explicit discussions of female pleasure. Clearly Ms Cattrall has a bit more va-va-voom than they bargained for.
Daily Record: Sexual attitudes have changed dramatically since the Victorian era.
When couples get married today they may have had up to 10 sexual partners. Back then the majority of women were probably virgins. Even when they did get married a lot of women still didn't have a clue what to do on the first night of their honeymoon. Britain's oldest virgin Clare Smith was 95 when she recalled her wedding night.
She said: "We were so innocent my husband and I didn't even know what having sex was. We both wore thick pyjamas and he played the mouth organ in bed all the time. I married twice and I never had sex. It didn't bother me, what you don't know, you don't miss."
Holey moley. Make sure you're not missing out by getting the complete information about better sex..or any sex, for that matter.
An oldie but a goldie this one - The Dildo Song is an awesome parody of the 1950s Slinky commercials that extolls the virtue of dildos. Made by a bunch of Canadian girls, it is a perfect send-up of the 50s style of advertising - it's in black and white, natch - and their reworked lyrics to the song are hilarious. It's been getting lots of new love thanks to being on Google Video where you can watch it online, or you can download it from the original creators site. Either way, it'll brighten up your day immeasurably - just like a real dildo!
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…
