Charlie Sheen’s Disposable Goddesses

It’s wasn’t Charlie Sheen’s possibly deranged, potentially BS and certainly attention-seeking behavior that has disturbed me over the last week or so. It’s been the way in which this behavior has been greeted largely as a joke — with phrases like “winning” and “tiger’s blood” being used as punchlines and Sheen in general being greeted with smirks and a record number of Twitter followers. One man even immortalized Sheen’s insane media blitz with a particularly ugly tattoo which he said was the talk of the bar after he got it done. Perhaps more confusing and disappointing was Jezebel blogger Jessica Coen posting an article about how she “Played Phone Tag with Charlie Sheen,” pretending she was interested in a job as a “Goddess” at Sheen’s newly-christened Sober Valley Lodge, even sending a photo …

University of Kansas Football Coach Bans Players from Seeing Women after 10 P.M.

In a bid to turn around his team’s losing ways (and boy have they been spectacular with last weekend’s blowout against middling Baylor and a loss to North Dakota State — which plays in a lower tier! — in which they managed only 3 points), first year University of Kansas football coach Turner Gill has instituted a curfew which prohibits his boys from “seeing women” after 10 P.M.

Apart from keeping his players from likely having late-night sex (apparently college kids, especially jocks, like to do that from time to time), Gill also wants to teach the team appropriate ways to interact with the fairer sex:

Is Shutting Down Craigslist’s Adult Services a Hindrance for Child Porn Investigations?

Under pressure from several attorneys general, government officials, law enforcement and advocacy groups, Craigslist shut down its Adult Services section on September 3rd of this year. In place of the link to the once-popular hookup site, it now simply reads “Censored.” Although Craigslist did shut down the Adult Services portion of the site, and their director of customer service and law enforcement relations, William Clint Powell, has assured the House Judiciary Crime subcommittee that they have no intention of restoring it, the company itself is …

Research Shows that One Night Stands Can Lead to More

Who among us hasn’t dreamed of true love, of finding that one special person to share their life with?  Sometimes, however, we get bogged down in the Disney princess mentality and miss the opportunities that exist right under our noses.  And sometimes, friends with benefits, casual dating with occasional (and non-monogamous sex), and the odd hookup are just easier.

But according to recent research out of the University of Iowa led by sociologist Anthony Paik, these informal relationships aren’t necessarily a bad thing … even in terms of finding your one true love (if you believe in such a thing, of course).

From The University of Iowa News Services:

Couples who became sexually involved as friends or acquaintances and were open to a serious relationship ended up just as happy as those who dated and waited.

“We didn’t see much evidence that relationships were lower quality because they started off as hookups,” said Paik, an assistant professor in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “The study suggests that rewarding relationships are possible for those who delay sex. But it’s also possible for true love to emerge if things start off with a more ‘Sex and the City’ approach, when people spot each other across the room, become sexually involved and then build a relationship.”

You know, part of me is really pretty excited about this even while my brain is screaming, “That’s freaking rudimentary!”

What this research is basically saying, after all, is that those willing to invest the time and energy and desire into making a relationship successful are more likely to be successful at the great long-term relationship game.  Therefore, it doesn’t matter as much if a couple start out as friends …
