Coeds at the University of Illinois are forbidden to wear long trench coats when necking with dates.  Reason: one legendary lass was once caught necking wearing her trench coat and nothing else…Keep reading here

Newsweek  May 8, 1967

Another gem:

Illinois also has a “three foot rule”: this requires couples to keep three of their collective four feet on the floor at all times in dorm room lounges—a restriction which, says a former student editor, “does not make for better morals, only more convoluted romantic gymnastics.”

I am fully persuaded by the passion of various emailers that Sean Avery is not a legend. But he’s now a hero in my book.

The single-most popular search term users entered into PornHub, the most heavily trafficked adult site in the world, isn’t “teens” or “cheerleaders,” as some of us might predict, but—get ready—”mom.”

Of Bristol Palin…

…and, perhaps, $262,500.

Comment of the Day

This is a reader’s comment on our story about a terrifying sex trafficking ordeal:

I’m an immigration attorney in the Midwest. I met the officers and agents who worked on the Detroit case with the Ukrainians (check the link). These traffickers make millions of dollars.

I am contacted about once or twice a year by women who were trafficked and forced into prostitution here in the US, usually from Central America or Mexico. Often, they have the young women in vans in the parking lots of strip clubs, waiting for horny guys who are leaving.

Sadly, as long as there is a demand, there will be people willing to force others into prostitution.

Memo to horny guys leaving strip clubs: those girls aren’t what you think they are.
