Naked News: Love is in the air, from North Korea to Scotland
OK, so maybe love is a strong word for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s marriage. But who knows what goes on behind closed doors? In Scotland, doors might be opening for gay couples who wish to marry. Which is pretty much the last country we would have expected it from (except maybe North Korea… and Iran… OK, OK, the Scots aren’t that bad). But while it’s getting gradually easier to marry a same-sex partner across the globe (to the moon and back, even — thanks, Sally Ride), it’s not getting any easier to be a VP in the U.S. (or to get away with cheating if you’re a celebrity, for that matter).

- How same-sex marriage is boosting New York’s economy.
- Wonder if that’s why Scotland is considering gay marriage? They’d be the first UK country to so so.
- Sex, but no drugs or alcohol in the Olympic Village in London.
- Long-term study shows how men and women express intimacy and romance in marriage: Men are more likely to act with kindness and love, and women are more likely to restrain themselves with kindness and love, to keep the spark going (i.e. less negativity, less nagging, etc.).
- First person believed to be cured of AIDS gives hope to researchers.
- North Korea announced this week that its new dictator, Kim Jong Un, is now married. What to get the man who can insist on getting everything?
- Kristen Stewart drops her usual flat-affect attitude and issues a heartfelt apology for cheating on her boyfriend. (Well, the cheating part sucks, but it’s better than denying it or blaming the media, we suppose. And she is only 22.)
- Sex, drugs, pornography, abortion… It’s not easy getting vetting to be VP.
- How Sally Ride came out, posthumously — in an obituary she co-wrote with her partner.
