The Rio de Janeiro carnival is the best known worldwide but every big city has its own celebrations."

    It's official. Sex toys are the new rock'n'roll. Life Style Extra reports that "Sex mad Brits have blown their supposedly prudish image with two-thirds watching porn with their partners while over half own sex toys, according to a new poll.

    The sexy survey revealed that the majority of couples today indulge their fantasies and enjoy the pleasures of the adult entertainment industry.

    Researchers found that 69 per cent of adults are willing to give approval to the porn industry with 58 per cent actually owning sex toys, erotic films or magazines."

    The report goes on to say: "Monogamy is not high on the fantasy wish list of most as the survey also reports that the UK’s top three sexual fantasies are threesomes, sex with a stranger and the tricky task of getting it on while skydiving".

    There's a new computer virus going round called variously the Kama Sutra virus or the Nymex virus. As the Boston Herald explains: "It’s named after the Kama Sutra, a Hindu manual of erotic love, but it won’t be making whoopee with computers today. The latest computer virus — its various names include Kama Sutra and Nyxem — does reproduce though, and that’s how it stands to potentially wipe out information and programs from millions of computers today. Kama Sutra is a mass-mailing worm that people unknowingly welcome into their computers by clicking on malicious links or opening malicious attached files, tempted by infected e-mails with subject lines that include “School girl fantasies gone bad” or “*Hot Movie*” or the seemingly innocuous “ebook.pdf” or “My photos.” "

    Basically - don't open any email attachments unless you are absolutely sure what they are, even if they are from someone else at work. If you want the real Kama Sutra, we've got it, along with scores of other better sex books.
