We're all HuffPost now

I'm a big fan of the new Bloomberg Businessweek, so I subscribe to their RSS feed of popular articles. Among today's entries? "When It Comes to Casual Sex, Men Aren't So Picky." And right after that? "Casual Sex Doesn't Cause Emotional Damage: Study."

News you can use, I guess.

Well, once The Atlantic put Britney Spears on the cover...

The numbers in the study don't support the headline. They lump 'close but not exclusive partner' in with 'casual partner.' Also, although the sample was overweighted with females, and the combined 'close/not exclusive' plus 'casual' partner group was more than 2 to 1 male. I suspect the real resultof the study was that most twenty year old guys are happy to get laid whenever and with whoever they can, but that would hardly merit much of a headline.

LOL... who are we kidding? The best part of HuffPo is the occasionally salacious content.

Not sure that these articles make the cut, though; there's no option to vote on and rank our favorite types of casual sex, for one.

I just did a quick survey of all the 'young adults' in the near vicinity and overwhelmingly we choose "Donkey Style." Now THAT'S HuffPo class!
