This week, a survey shows many women are not taking precautions against STDs, Men’s Health determines the “sex-happiest” cities, and a Dutch designer designs a sex toy to hold human ashes.

This week, design students want to revamp condom packaging to appeal to women, a sex toy company released new underwear, and sex researchers predict 2014 will mark the return of “vanilla” sex for couples—but we’re not so sure we agree.

The varsity cheerleading squad in Wharton, Texas, warmed the bench last Friday night because of a homecoming gag that provided condoms to the football team. I’d call this an over-reaction and missed opportunity in a state where high school sexual activity rates are higher than the national average.
