* Porn star Joanna Angel was in a car accident with fellow starlet Jessie Lee, and Lee is injured and needs help. Find out more at Help OMG It’s Jessie Lee. (helpomgitsjessielee.com)

* Dirty! And a nice piece of writing. Sqirting and hot lesbian sex in NY Mag — distract yourself with The Writer Whose Girlfriend Has the Sex Drive of a 13-Year-Old Boy. (nymag.com)

* Waiter, there’s a vagina in my magazine. Say hello to feminist video magazine Vag. (vagmagazine.tv, via Fierce Kitty)

* Seriously: fuck you Andrew Shrivell. Firing is the nicest thing that should happen to you. Cox fires Andrew Shirvell, says he used state resources in attack on gay student. (freep.com)

* I love you Psycho Nurse! This week Psycho Nurse — a real-life nurse — looked at Maca and it’s reputation as the new female Viarga in Maca, Me, Sex And The Kitty. (lockergnome.com)

* The nurse is psycho, so call a doctor: Dr. Charlie Glickman celebrates that researchers have cracked the mystery of AIDS immunity. (charlieglickman.com)
