An Ugly Craze
A Gamers’ Grudge Match
Microsoft, what did you do?

Big Smack and Cries
Strapping Lad in Search of a Strap-on
In a truly bizarre example of sexual frustration, a customer storms into a sex shop and goes berserk at the gimp mask vendor cowering behind a jar of Clitoris Allsorts on the counter. It shouldn’t be surprising that a sex shop patron could act so cocky, and just goes to show that any respectable porn emporium must stock a variety of vibrators to please every customer.
