Facebook Makes It Easier To Classroom Stalk People You Like

According to this MediaPost article, Universidade Anhembi Morumbi, a university in Brasil, is now offering enrollment in its classes in Facebook. When students register for classes, the news may be added to their newsfeed, as in “Debby Herbenick has now registered for HPER F255: Human Sexuality”.

How Airplanes Changed Love and Sex

Growing up, my father worked as an attorney for a computer technology company. Before that, he worked for other large tech-related corporations (first as an engineer) and he brought his love of technology home to his family. We were among the first of our friends to have a computer in our home and he was perpetually interested in new gadgets that came on the market, and what it was like to take them apart and put them back together – sometimes successfully, others not.

I have to admit. The inspiration for this post was not what you might expect: it was Gizmodo’s article about the iPhone 3.0 OS software which includes features I have long waited for such as copy and paste, turn-by-turn directions (like the Garmin), and – whoa there – the ability to tether your iPhone to your laptop to get internet access. This is totally going to change my airport experience. Thanks to Apple, when I think of orgasmic phone sex, I am now thinking of my iPhone. But perhaps you’re reading this because you want to learn about how people have sex over the phone, right? Continue Reading →
