    THE next time you want to bag the bonk of your life, you need a partner who knows a lot about your hardware. While computer nerds are obviously good at IT, what we didn't realise is that they're good at "it" too. An anonymous study of 2,000 British men and women concluded that out of all jobs, computer geeks make the best lovers. They were found to be the most selfless in the sack, the most adventurous and more likely to use love gadgets. Seventy-eight per cent of techies that were questioned also claimed that sex toys were part of...

    Scientists have found that the pleasure women get from making love is directly linked to the size of their partner’s bank balance. They found that the wealthier a man is, the more frequently his partner has orgasms. “Women’s orgasm frequency increases with the income of their partner,” said Dr. Thomas Pollet, the Newcastle University psychologist behind the research. He believes the phenomenon is an “evolutionary adaptation” that is hard-wired into women, driving them to select men on the basis of their perceived quality. The study is certain to prove controversial, suggesting that women are inherently programmed to be gold-diggers. However,...

    Diyarbakır excavation reveals ancient tomb of young lovers Archaeologists discovered the tomb of a young couple locked in an embrace during their work in Hakemi Use in the Bismil district of the southeastern province of Diyarbakır on Saturday.

Archaeologists assert that the couple, who presumably died some 8,000 years ago, is likely to set a record as the oldest embracing couple in the history of archaeology. Diyarbakır was witness to an extraordinary discovery when archaeologists revealed the tomb of the...

    BERLIN - Germany's national railway wasn't about to risk sending a trainload of soccer fans to a German Cup match without beer.

"In order not to endanger the good mood" of the passengers, railway officials halted the train in Wuppertal for 25 minutes and had a replacement part delivered by taxi, a police statement said. It added that there was no trouble among the fans. Their team was less...

    KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A Malaysian state plans to recruit "spies" from the public to snoop on unmarried lovers and report them to Islamic religious authorities, a newspaper said on Tuesday. The Terengganu state government plans to enlist the part-time spies to look out for un-Islamic behaviour, such as unmarried couples kissing or holding hands, the Star daily said. "Some of these 'spies' could be waitresses or even janitors at hotels acting as auxiliary undercover agents for our religious department," the head of the state government's Islamic and welfare committee, Rosol Wahid, was quoted as saying. "Accurate details are required...

    French cat lovers panic after bird flu death By Colin Randall (Filed: 02/03/2006) France's pet owners reacted with panic yesterday to the confirmation that a cat found dead in Germany was killed by bird flu. Its animal protection society, the SPA, was bombarded with calls from people worried at their pet catching the disease's lethal H5N1 strain. Some abandoned their cats. "We are getting calls from cat owners wanting to know if there are risks," said Serge Belais, the society's president. "People are panicking." He had no numbers of abandoned cats but said: "The risk is that we'll see the...

    Authorities in Belgium launched a rescue operation after a couple were spotted 'struggling' in the sea - only to find they were making love. The alert was raised after a man from De Panne spotted the couple with his binoculars and contacted the coastguard, reports Het Nieuwsblad. A Sea King rescue helicopter from a military base in Koksijde, a lifeboat and local police officers were all drafted in to help the couple. But when the two swimmers were finally 'rescued' they complained there was nothing wrong with them and they had never been in any danger. The 23-year-old girl, from...

    "I believe severe punishment is required in this case," the judge said at Allen and Pat's sentencing in November 1997. "I think they have to be separated. It's the only way to prevent them from having intercourse in the future." Allen and Pat were lovers, but a Wisconsin statute enacted in 1849 made their sexual relationship a felony. The law was sometimes used to nail predators who had molested children, but using it to prosecute consenting adults -- Allen was 45; Pat, 30 -- was virtually unheard of. That didn't deter Milwaukee County Judge David Hansher, however. Nor did the...

    For sprightly grandmother-of-three Edna Townsend, it was definitely love at first sight. And to Simon Martin, who was still in his twenties at the time, she was the woman of his dreams. After that fateful first meeting, the pair began dating and soon embarked on a full-blown romance with little thought for the small matter of their 39-year age difference. Two and a half years on, the newlyweds - now aged 70 and 31 - are off on a two-week honeymoon in Cornwall, proving that sometimes love can indeed conquer all.

The show, dubbed VB55, at one of Berlin's...

    By Brian Whitaker The Saudi Arabian security forces have arrested 110 men at a "gay wedding" party in Jeddah, according to a Saudi online newspaper. Al-Wifaq, which has connections with the interior ministry, said the authorities had raided a wedding hall on Monday night after a tip-off and found the men - all Saudis - dancing and "behaving like women". Eighty men were later released, but 30 appeared in a Jeddah court on Wednesday to face charges, the paper said. Homosexuality is illegal in Saudi Arabia and is punished by flogging, jail or death. The raid was made a day...

    Every now and then we need a belly rub break from the terrorists, politics, human horrors and demonRats of this world. When some of the threads get a bit intense and we find we're starting to take ourselves a tad too seriously, you'll see many of us drifting into comments about our funny little furry companions. It doesn't take much, just a reference to the Hildebeast or one of sKerry's daughters can set off the canine crazies amongst us.

    LONDON (Reuters) - Don't knock your friends: they could save your life. Heart attack survivors with a close friend, relative or lover to confide in are half as likely to suffer further heart attacks within a year as patients without a shoulder to cry on, a study shows. The study, published this week in the British Medical Association's journal Heart, tracked nearly 600 patients for a year after they had a heart attack. "Patients with a close confidant had only half the risk of a further cardiac event of those without a confidant," the study said, adding that the finding...

    BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The Hungarian city of Pecs is fighting a losing battle against padlocks which lovers are secretly clamping on statues and gates all over the city center as symbols of their enduring affection. The curious tradition dates back to the early 1980s when lovers began fixing single padlocks, without any markings, on a wrought iron fence in the heart of Pecs, which has a magnificent cathedral and ancient Christian tombs. With no room now left on the fence, couples, both locals and tourists, are fastening their love tokens on anything that will hold a padlock, including statues. The...
