Behind these doors...
Our friends over at Fucked in Park Slope are busily compiling answers to their second annual sex survey. Having something of an interest in such things -- intellectually speaking, of course -- we were curious about what this year's results might tell us. We talked to the two contributors who created the survey, Meredith and Vee, to get an update on the state of sex in Park Slope (FYI: "People in Park Slope care about sex, or at least they want to know how often their neighbors are getting it on") and to get a little teaser, if you will, as to what we can expect when the official results come out next week.

Okay, we had some comments after all. Lady, we hope you're having fun in that get-up, cause it's going to be hell to get out of your pillowcase. [via Crushable]

All this can be yours for $19, shipping included! What? We were a little bit hypnotized there ourselves, for a moment. Girl can act.
