Here comes the single bride. Last week, Nadine Schweigert married herself in a symbolic wedding ceremony. The 36-year-old divorced mom of three wore blue satin and clutched a bouquet of white roses as she walked down the aisle before a gathering of 45 friends and family members in Fargo, North Dakota.Presumably she registered at Fantasy's. It's somehow alarming to discover that there are sex shops in Fargo, isn't it? The sad thing is that this woman apparently doesn't have any friends or family, or anyone in her life to say "look, I'm sorry, but you do realize that this is completely insane."
She vowed to "to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self," reports Fargo's InForum newspaper . After the ring was exchanged with the bride and her inner-groom, guests were encouraged to "blow kisses at the world," and later, eat cake.
Only two more and the New York Times will call it a trend! And on that note, it is reported that women are putting their ereaders to increasingly hot and heavy use:
Downloading saucy stories is becoming increasingly popular with women as the anonymity of the transaction means they are spared the blushes of having to buy a naughty book in stores.... Publisher Caroline Ridding told The Guardian, that erotic fiction has 'enormous global online constituency' which was 'driven almost exclusively' by female readers.Of course, that faint buzzing sound one hears when they are engrossed in a particularly well-written literary passage does tend to give it away. No doubt all of those dedicated feminist anti-porn crusaders will hop right on the anti-erotic fiction campaign, right?
hhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm Wait, now, that's not crickets chirping!
