Question of the Day: Is sex with girls ok?

sleepovers

So basically what this means is young girls cannot have sex with boys but they are free to do it with fellow girls if they videotape it. I like the sound of that.

Ok. Michael Bay has gone bonkers again.

Felicia starts thriving business, sells used panties on her blog

felicia

Looks like another Singaporean girl is following the footsteps of Pamela. Remember her? The girl who sells her used panties online back in 2008. This time it's Felicia, a 19 year old Singapore student, who is doing it for what else but to get money for school fees and daily expenses.

For those interested, all her panties will be worn for a minimum of 12 hours before she sells them. Why? So that they smell, of course! Come on, you freaks wouldn't buy used panties if they smell like they just came out of the washing machine right? Oh, she's also giving a $15 discount to those who buy 2 panties! Must be some Christmas cum New Year offer.

Update: Felicia has stopped selling her used undies. Probably because she's already earned enough to be a millionaire.
