This is almost as funny as Restless Legs Syndrome. And of course the Japanese are the first to report on it. From Spa!
Japan is in dire straights. The population is declining, people are marrying later, having fewer children, if any at all. And Spa! (1/29) says one of the major reasons for the dilemma is that as many as 70 percent of younger men are unable to achieve vaginal ejaculation.
“They’ve got no erection problems and they can masturbate perfectly normally, but there has been a massive increase, particularly among those in their 20s and 30s, who are suffering from vaginal ejaculation disorder, or an inability to ejaculate inside the vagina,” Koichi Nagao, a urologist at the Toho University Omori Medical Center, tells Spa! “It’s the most common dysfunction I have to deal with among people who come to the clinic. It leads to problems in the home, fertility problems and, in the worst cases, divorce.”
Though there’s no data available on exactly how many Japanese men are actually suffering from vaginal ejaculation disorder, a soapland brothel worker the magazine gives as its source says over her many years of servicing male clients, it would have to be around 70 percent. “Young guys in particular. I’d say for every 10 guys, only about three come inside,” the woman says.
What’s to blame? It’s porn of course
Experts say one of the main reasons men develop vaginal ejaculation disorder is that they learn how to masturbate using methods that feel distinctly different from vaginas, such as rubbing up against pillows or lying face down and moving back and forward for stimulation until climax. “Sex is too accessible for young people nowadays, what with adult movies and Internet porn,” Harima tells Spa! “They’re too used to the virtual world, which means when they find things like a woman who doesn’t have porn star looks, is sweaty, or doesn’t moan as loud as they’re expecting, they become unable to ejaculate.
We got a kick out of this, but we’re confused… how does this not qualify as “writing?” As much as we love Stewart and Colbert, we’re confused why writers aren’t outraged that they’re back. Their shows aren’t being ad-libbed. They have scripts, which, the last time we checked, required writers.
This remix CD has been out for a few months, but given how great it is, we’re shocked that it’s gotten almost no attention. Especially since it’s free. From Ratatat’s website:

At least NPR’s great music blog has taken notice. They ranked Ratatat Remixes Volume II among their top ten hip hop records of 2007. Grab it here.
It’s a shame that most environmentalists (and Al Gore) have ignored this disturbing fact: “livestock production generates nearly a fifth of the world’s greenhouse gases — more than transportation.” In case you missed it, The New York Times published a great article yesterday on this ignored environmental problem. You can read the whole thing here.
Recent laboratory tests found so much mercury in tuna sushi from 20 Manhattan stores and restaurants that at most of them, a regular diet of six pieces a week would exceed the levels considered acceptable by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Sushi from 5 of the 20 places had mercury levels so high that the Food and Drug Administration could take legal action to remove the fish from the market. The sushi was bought by The New York Times in October.
‚”No one should eat a meal of tuna with mercury levels like those found in the restaurant samples more than about once every three weeks,” said Dr. Michael Gochfeld, professor of environmental and occupational medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, N.J.
As Democrats look ahead to the primaries in the biggest states on Feb. 5, The Times’s editorial board strongly recommends that they select Hillary Clinton as their nominee for the 2008 presidential election.
Vice takes a stroll down memory lane to remember good times at Williamsburg’s coke-tastically notorious bar, Kokie’s. For all you young-uns out there who don’t remember Larry Tee and Electroclash, Kokie’s was the bar of choice for hipsters wanting to score crappy blow and/or spend the night salsa dancing with sketchy, coked-out middle aged neighborhood locals. Check out Vice’s article here.
Whenever we’re feeling depressed about the state of media in this country, we take solace in Britian’s The Sun. Here’s a sample of their cutting edge journalism.
IT isn’t just Britain where the weather is a bit nippy at the moment. JENNIFER ANISTON was feeling the cold in Vancouver, Canada.
The ex-Friends star really is absolutely stunning — no question about it. Quite why she is single is beyond me.
A bit farther south, in more ways than one, BRITNEY SPEARS was snapped looking better than usual.
Her efforts to hide the Smarties failed too.
