    In regard to Traister’s Year in Sex:
    What, no link to a naked Harry Potter? Yet, all the girlies mentioned have links to the relevant scandalous photos? Consider me disgruntled.

    Sudy is awesome, and I’ve seen that video before. Quite frankly, I’ve seen some pretty stupid comments on this site too, despite my love for it.
