The city of New York has just launched an app for Android and iOS designed to serve as a means of tech-powered sexual education for the region's youth.

The Gates Foundation is offering $100,000 to anyone who can make condoms more enjoyable to use.
Sex might be a problem for folks hanging out in outer space, but it can also be difficult for women with female orgasmic disorder i.e. the female equivalent of erectile dysfunction. There hasn't been much in the way of a female Viagra, but tests on a possible sex-drive drug for women have begun in Australia and Canada.
They say sex is the most powerful incentive. I'm not sure who "they" are, exactly, but turns out they're wrong, at least when it comes to Internet-Age folks.

James Bond definitely qualified for having a climatic congress with Holly Goodhead in the 1979 film Moonraker. But in reality just how enjoyable, or realistic, is sex in space?
