NewsWales: After a report that sexual diseases are rising in Wales America's biggest maker of condoms is negotiating a scheme to give Cardiff taxi drivers condoms to give to their cients.
Drivers would hand the Trojan condoms out to passengers who request them on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays after a 10.30pm watershed. The scheme in Cardiff will be supported by local media, flyers and posters in clubs and bars.

LONDON, Ontario. - Tyler Ing doesn't believe in haircuts - at least not on his nipples. The 20-year-old University of Western Ontario engineering student has made it into the 2006 Guinness Book of Records with a curious claim: the world's longest nipple hair. The record-setting black strand dangling from Ing's right nipple measures a startling 8.89 centimetres. "There are a few contenders on me, but that's the longest one," said Ing, who has never trimmed or plucked his hirsute teats.
"A Mr Kang who went to a private hospital to have foreskin resection has lost more than he expected, the Xinmin Evening News reported Friday. Kang, a middle-aged man, read an advertisement and went to a private hospital in Jinshan District on September 8. He followed doctor’s instruction to take a course of microwave 'heliotherapy'. After one hour, Kang noticed that his penis had been burned black and was painful. He had difficulty passing water but the doctor had gone off work and he could find nobody to help him. On the following day, the doctor tried to treat the inflammation and advised Kang to try other hospitals. Urologists found that Kang's penis had been so severely ‘cooked’ that the burned parts had to be excised reducing the size of the penis. The president of the private hospital admitted an 'accident' had occurred but asserted that the 'operation' had been performed according to the instructions set out on the ‘heliotherapy’ manual and it was the first time that such an accident had occurred, Xinmin said." —Shanghai Daily (China) [via Pervscan]

The New York Press has a particularly frank and funny sex advice column, which recently included this gem:
My guy really wants to have anal sex with me, but let's face it; it's a pain in the ass. Not only is it messy, but super painful. He is putting so much pressure on me about it, saying, "Most girls love it!" I don't want to lose him, but yikes! —Carol P.
He is exaggerating. Most girls hate anal sex. If he thinks it is so great, tell him you will try it but only if he lets you ram a dildo up his chocolate starfish. (You wouldn't want him missing out on any of the so-called pleasure!) Men like anal due to the tight fit and because it's so naughty, but they don't realize how much it hurts until they try it. They think we all love it thanks to porn flicks, where the girls are getting paid to pretend they like it. Never do what you don't want to do, and if he doesn't like it, he can find himself a canal pal!
(P.S. Do not write me telling me how much your girl loves getting it up the ass. I said "most girls.")
This advice runs against the fact that everyone seems to be trying out anal sex these days to see if they like it. Who's to say? You can only decide for yourself. We've got The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women to let you make up your own mind about whether or not it's for you.
