After receiving numerous complaints from neighbors – including one who was partially deaf – an Environmental Health agency set up recording devices to discern the amount of noise reaching neighbors’ homes during the sessions that generally lasted two and a half hours. The couple had already been served with as ASBO (Anti-social behavior order) and because they continued to violate that order, have now been fined USD$290 and USD$430.
Ridiculous? Amazing? Disgusting?

UK mother Lucy Baxter has begun a campaign to find a girlfriend for her 21-year-old son Otto, who has Down’s Syndrome, because she feels bad that he’s surrounded by other people his age having sex but himself remains a virgin. If that fails, she may pay a prostitute.
“If he doesn’t get a girlfriend, I will feel really bad, because I have sold him this thing that he is like everybody else. That’s why I’m working overtime to get this sorted for him.”
Interesting conflation of “having sex” and “getting a girlfriend” – two very different things. Which is it that she’s more concerned about?
Mom would also like Otto to have a non-retarded girlfriend, since he’s “like everybody else.” I’m all for empowerment here, folks, but there are certain facts we should perhaps address. (Plus, if Otto, and by extension other individuals with Down’s Syndrome, are “just like everybody else,” why does his girlfriend need to be non-retarded?)

Diddy is currently live-tweeting 36 hours of tantric sex.
