Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

I wonder what the ACC statistics are for sex related injuries?

VICE reports on how to avoid breaking your dick having sex.

A group of Brazilian doctors recently published a paper in the academic journal Advances in Urology identifying “woman-on-top” (aka cowgirl) as the most dangerous sex position in terms of the sheer number of dicks broken mid-fuck. Analyzing data from three accident and emergency units in the Brazilian city of Campinas over the past 13 years for clear cases of penile fractures (in which the ligament in the penis either tears or overextends, often with a loud, painful crack), the doctors determined that half of all such fractures came when women rode men, with 29 percent resulting from over-vigorous doggy-style and 21 percent resulting from missionary sex.

Those who made it trough the wince-inducing study may have tried to take comfort in the fact that sex-related injuries are rare. As it turns out, that’s not entirely true. Urologists at the University of Washington Medical School alone say they see at least one or two penile fractures a month. More generally, a British study found that up to five percent of the workforce takes time off for expressly sex-related injuries every year. And although there’s a great deal of under-reporting, self-treating, or misreporting of sex-related injuries, most estimates say that up to one-third of adults will suffer some kind of injury during or directly from the dirty deed—often without realizing the pain they’re in until the morning after, thanks to our lovely, sexed-up endorphins.

Many of these injuries could happen outside of carnal embrace: carpet burns, pulled muscles, sprains, and the like. But many more are fairly serious, associated with specific sexual scenarios, and utterly avoidable with the proper precautions.

So poverty is now defined as having no pajamas

The Herald on Sunday has announced a new campaign, giving away pajamas to the poor.

The Herald on Sunday is today launching a campaign to provide much-needed pyjamas for some of New Zealand’s most vulnerable kids.

We have teamed up with the Middlemore Foundation to support its annual Jammies in June campaign.

The initiative is in its third year and we’re calling on readers to help raise a record $40,000 and 10,000 pairs of new pyjamas.

Cash donated will be used to buy more pyjamas, as well as blankets, socks and other items to keep Kiwi kids toasty this winter.

Herald on Sunday editor Miriyana Alexander urged readers to get behind the campaign.

“The foundation does a fabulous job, and I’m delighted to lend our support to this pyjama fundraiser,” Alexander said.

“It’s confronting to think so many Kiwi kids might be going to bed cold this winter — but that’s the reality.

“Please join us to ensure thousands more can go to bed snug and warm this winter.”

Public shame a critical component of justice

The son of a New Zealand rich-lister has won a fight to keep his name secret after he allegedly punched a female police officer in the face.

The police officer suffered a black eye, serious swelling to her face and needed hospital treatment.

The man was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, assaulting a security guard and damaging a window during the March 26 incident outside the popular Dunedin student haunt Shooters Bar.

He appeared in Dunedin District Court four times, without seeking name suppression, before the case was transferred to Auckland District Court.

But after questions from the Herald on Sunday, the man’s lawyers filed an application for interim name suppression.

On Tuesday, Judge Anne Kiernan ordered that the man’s name be kept secret for the next three weeks.

Details around that hearing have also been suppressed, but it can be reported that Judge Kiernan found publishing his name could prejudice his right to a fair trial.

That argument can be said to be true for anyone then.  What it also means is that the judge presupposes that a jury would ignore the facts just to notch up a win against the privileged.   Read more »
