What will it be like for women on submarines?

Did you hear that the Navy will soon allow women to serve on submarines? (If you haven't read Craig Whitlock's story, read it. It's got one of the best leads The Eye has read in awhile.)

NBC "Today Show" co-host Ann Curry got a taste of what female bubbleheads can expect aboard the USS Maryland.

Thoughts? The comments section awaits you.

Lots of sex.

Also, having to go to sea level and lose their secrecy due to pregnant sailors.

I am absolutely thrilled over this. I personally would have zero (or perhaps less than zero) desire to ever serve on a sub, but I am pleased that women who do will soon have the chance.

Gay women? "Women" is not an all inclusive descriptor.
