The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is offering up $100,000 of initial funding for the designer of the "next generation of condoms," just one of the topics for Round 11 of its Grand Challenges Exploration initiative.
According to the official call for entries, released earlier this month:
The one major drawback to more universal use of male condoms is the lack of perceived incentive for consistent use. The primary drawback from the male perspective is that condoms decrease pleasure as compared to no condom, creating a trade-off that many men find unacceptable, particularly given that the decisions about use must be made just prior to intercourse.
Its a papal penis buffet and they even have a bear night!!!
Church leaders gathering for Tuesday’s papal conclave picked up the paper to learn the Holy See is the majority owner of an apartment block that houses Italy’s largest gay bathhouse.
Even more shocking, Ivan Cardinal Dias lives in a swank 12-room apartment one floor above Europa Multiclub, and mere yards from the phallic shrubbery at the entrance of the gay Xanadu, La Repubblica reported.
Dias is known for reviling homosexuality, calling it “unnatural” and arguing that gays can be “cured.”
That cure certainly does not require taking the waters at the Europa club, which boasts a Turkish bath, Finnish sauna, whirlpools, massages, “bear parties” and much more.
Government officials on the Indonesian island of Bali are considering putting up “no sex” signs at Hindu temples after a couple was caught in the act.
The couple claimed they really did not know that sex at temples was forbidden, so the cops ended up just releasing them to the village leaders – and the village leaders decided to hold a “cleansing ceremony,” which the couple had to pay for … at a price of $2,000. The couple admitted they had also used the temple’s outdoor shower before having sex and apologised
The village leaders are also now discussing whether to add “no sex” signs to the temples besides the usual “no eating” and “no smoking” warnings. (RawStory.com)
A filmmaker from New Zealand died on Wednesday after being pulled underwater by a great white shark while swimming off the coast of Auckland. -
Adam Strange, who produced commercials and a short film, was swimming about 650 feet off the shore of Muriwai Beach when he was attacked by a shark, The Daily Mail reports.
The 46-year old's peril brought out rescue boats and a helicopter, both of which aimed fire at a group of sharks that had rushed to the struggle. The sharks ultimately left the scene, but not before Strange had been killed. His body was found half an hour later. It was the first recorded shark attack in mainland New Zealand since the 1970s. -
