On Friday Open Thread

@anachronistique Yay! Congrats! I got my (copper) IUD in 2008 and am still really happy about not having to worry about birth control until 2020, even though it sounds less like the very distant date in some post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel than it did when I was 20. I was staying at a B&B in Belgium, and the first thing I did was get a Tripel beer and the second thing I did was get a Belgian waffle and the third thing I did was go back to the B&B and get in the hot tub and eat/drink the above and celebrate my IUD-day. (It was also my first encounter with a speculum/gynecologist, so I was pretty proud of myself). I hope you're celebrating yours!

On Secondary Relationships, Tequila Fumes, and the Lesbian Internet

@Quinn A@twitter So there's this episode of Lip Service (Scottish lesbian drama/sitcom) where Tess is brokenhearted after being dumped by her girlfriend, tries internet dating for the first time, and meets this girl at a bar. They get on great and go home together, and just as stuff is getting all sexy on the couch, the internet date girl's husband walks in, plants a chair on the floor, and starts watching. Tess is horrified, and then gives them some marital advice. It's hilarious and awkward and awful and all I could think about when reading this question. I don't know if there's a YouTube clip, but it's minute 17 on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/364764
