To all of you out there (you know who you are) for whom "good sex" means anything that lasts over ten minutes: It's time we had a little talk. "Foreplay" is not a golf term. "Kamasutra" is not an eggplant dish. Sixty-nine is not a character on "Get Smart." You really want to get smart? Read this article. If you're like me, it'll have you slapping your own forehead exlaiming, "I could have had tantric sex!"

Seriously, this piece about tantric sex is quite an attention-grabber. Though at first glance the Eastern sexual technique -- with its talk of yoga, meditation and "chakra alignment" -- sounds suspiciously New Agey, one can't help remain open-minded to its promises of multiple orgasms and hours of non-stop stimulation. I'm sold! Plus tantric sex is free, it's all-natural, and it's low on sodium. As a bonus you can achieve spiritual enlightenment, so you don't have to read "Siddhartha" again. What else could anyone want?

If you said "jukeboxes" and "online magazines," then more power to you, because that's just what we've got. This article laments the sad fate of jukeboxes, yet finds hope in their resurrection as nostalgic fetish objects. This article lists and celebrates the best online 'zines, a terrific reading resource, even if it does sadly neglect Weekly Wire's place in the 'zine scene. Then there's these two articles, which provide tips and recipes for eating lighter, healthier meals.

Speaking of which, when is somebody going to come up with a method for tantric eating? The moment that happens, I'm there.
