sex roundup


Bishop Bacani of Novaliches joins Bishop Yalung of Antipolo in leaving the country after a sex scandal. The former's secretary filed a sexual harassment complaint against Bacani before Papal Nuncio Franco, while the latter's girlfriend is pregnant with their second child.

The faithful are aghast but I'm not surprised.

Sex is sex and it happens. Perhaps it is better to just remove the chastity vow and allow these priests to fuck around legally like the rest of us - but all pedos must burn.


Speaking of sex, if you're into geriatrics, look no further. Geri, "the only patient care manniken that resembles a geriatric patient" is now available from Aspen Corp, complete with venipucture training arm. Just look for the ad in today's Inquirer.

But really, it is meant for nurses in training so get your mind out of the gutter.

less porn does not a good world make

Still speaking of sex, embattled comics publisher Fantagraphics are cutting down on their offerings from Eros, their porn line.

They need help, by the way, so if you have a credit card, hie on over and over some stuff. And get some porn.

the less it becomes freakish

And finally, from the Guardian:

With a lingering kiss, and a prime-time declaration of love that brought rousing applause from the audience, a gay couple stole the show at the Tony awards on Sunday night in New York. Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, personal and professional partners for 25 years, won a Tony, the Oscar of the theatre world, for the score of "Hairspray", which features Harvey Fierstein in drag playing a woman.

In his acceptance speech, shown live on TV, Mr Shaiman turned to Mr Wittman and said: "I love this man. We're not allowed to get married in this world ... But I'd like to declare, in front of all these people, I love you and I'd like to live with you the rest of my life."

Shortly afterwards Denis O'Hare, who won the featured actor (play) prize for his role in Take Me Out, about a gay baseball player, also thanked his boyfriend sitting in the audience. At first, Mr O'Hare says, he had doubts about whether to do so, but decided to go ahead.

"I thought, 'No, no, no, this is the whole point.' The whole point is that we all have to risk something personal to make something happen. The more it's talked about the more it becomes commonplace, the less it becomes freakish. I think it's a good thing."
