City Paper is not for tourists
Last week in this space, I confessed my inability to dump AOL email despite the many technical difficulties I’ve had with the service. I’ve since gotten calls from public relations and technical staffers from AOL, who say they’re on the case.
But for now, as with the last several months, I’m still unable to sign on to AOL’s homepage because of some software glitch, and, on the advice of AOL troubleshooting forums, have to go through the AOL-India Web site to check my email.
It’s a hassle, but a funny one. Because through my visits to AOL-India I’ve learned so much about Indians. All I can say is “Oh, Calcutta?”
Turns out the nation of more than 1.1 billion people is more sex-obsessed than us Yanks.
Well, in the eyes of AOL-India’s editors, anyway.
So, in the interest of sharing my anthropological awakening, here’s the featured news AOL-India put on its front page this weekend. :
Findings of a behavioral study are revealed in “Why People Have Sex: It Feels Good!“
New technology is outlined in “Move Over, Internet Age, the Spray-On Condom Era Has Begun!”
Researchers offer domestic advice in “How Not to Suck in Bed!“
Anatomical issues are mulled in “Ashkay Kumar’s Butt Looks Good in Levi’s!
And, um, “Nine Die as Orissa Gets Flooded.”
