It's time to get those vaginas in shape! In a world in which everything must be exercised and prettied up, here comes a spa just for vaginas. Says its founder, “It’s the dental floss of feminine fitness.” [Times] via [Racked]
I just saw Wall-E and highly recommend it. Here's a reviewer who hated it, but his description sums up just how smart and subversively dark the movie is: "Wall-E...supposes that the human race of the future will become a flabby mass of peabrained idiots who are literally too fat to walk.

Yes, but they will also have impressively fit vaginas!
