The Australian Sex Party is now registered as a bona fide political party. It will be interesting to see whether it becomes a substantial force in Australian politics.
Some of the bigger online dating sites have been making impressive claims about the number of marriages that result from their online matchmaking services. EHarmony, for example, says that it facilitates 2% of marriages in America.
Not surprisingly, there is disagreement about the accuracy of such figures. That said, even if the true numbers are only a fraction of what the dating sites claim, they are still staggering.
The stereotype of older people being uncomfortable with the internet still persists. But it seems that as a group they are embracing it enthusiastically. In the online dating industry, for example, over-50s had become the fastest growing subscriber group by 2007.
It's quite amazing how some celebrities keep leveraging their fame for material gain. Take Warwick Capper, for instance. He was a star footballer for the Sydney Swans back in the eighties. His on field career finished in 1991, but he's been popping up in the media occasionally since then, most notoriously for starring in a porn film. Now, the middle aged Queenslander is a highly priced male escort!
The bloke is completely shameless.
