“Cockinasock” Trend Sweeping the Web

Why are men posting photos on the Internet of themselves wearing nothing but socks over their genitals? And how is this trend a force for good? “Cockinasock” is blowing up social media and it’s for a great cause: raising awareness of testicular cancer.

Hawaii Cops Drop Fight to Sleep With Prostitutes

Hawaii police are giving up the fight for their right to have sex with prostitutes. Hawaii is the only state that allows undercover cops to actually sleep with sex workers in the course of an investigation. When politicians chose to ban the practice, Hawaii police lobbied to keep the loophole. This led to a media outcry and a fair amount of embarrassment for the cops, and now the police are dropping their objections to any new legislation to stop them from laying prostitutes on the job.
