Over at Boing Boing I have a guest post (w00t!), The Top Ten Sex Memes of 2006, snip:
“Memes snake around and wind up on everyone’s blogs, sites, get injected into inboxes and become just generally known by most without widespread recognition from a news or mainstream media site.

Read more — there are some really interesting/creepy/hilarious things on that list. Also of interest (general), BoingBoing’s most-trafficked posts of 2006 (and all time). And some fun new posts of mine over at Fleshbot (of note), the Google-spanking Femdomart, The Wiibrator.
