==> From The Times of India: Researchers from the University of Sheffield recently discovered that getting a second wife is a sure shot way to a longer life. Keeping socio-economic differences in mind, it has been observed that men over 60 from 140 countries who practise polygamy live, on average, 12 per cent longer than men hailing from monogamous nations.

==> There’s an ongoing protest over an alleged swingers club in Amarillo, Texas, with a moralizing group called “Repent Amarillo” now confronted by “Angel Action,” which claims to “represent the rights of the businesses and groups (that) Repent Amarillo does not support.”
Texas — what a country, eh? (Link)
==> From London, I see: Sexual Revolution: The Ugliest Product of Imperialism
… written from an Islamic point of view. Interesting reading, even if I don’t agree with the fellow. Maybe he’d get on well with the “Repent Amarillo” crowd …
==> I espy another free dating site that looks reasonably legit: KissCafe. Plentyoffish.com and OKCupid are two existing ones that have a lot to offer. These don’t have sex as a focus … but they’re not eHarmony “eegods, I want my soulmate” dot com, either. I’d still jump on Kasidie.com or sex.com first … though neither is up to full speed quite yet.
==> Finally: You know those work-at-home jobs? Some of them are for the creation of fake profiles on dating sites. You, too, can contribute to dating and sexual frustration everywhere, and make less than minimum wage. I refuse to provide a link, but I will quote just one of a number of “opportunities”:
I need someone to enter profiles into a dating site. The site is brand new, so you will have to create “fake” profiles most of them with pictures and create realistic profiles. I want them from a wide variety of countries and interests. I also want you to log in and e-mail some “real” members with the accounts you created. I need about 10,000 profiles entered so I am looking for more than one person. I would estimate a profile to take about 5 minutes to create.
Please send me your quote with a per profile rate. Tell me how much you want to charge to post a profile, how many hours you are willing to work and how many profiles would you create in a week.

A very bad man wrote that ad.
That’s enough for today … the SMC and I might go sledding, which is probably not a euphemism for a sexual act. Though the way we’re going lately, it might turn into that.
