Cancer charity Orchid have teamed up with creative agency Fallon to release a Christmas tree bauble in the guise of a pair of shiny red testicles. As well as raising funds for new research, it is also hoped the decoration will remind men to check themselves for possible signs of testicular cancer.

Performance of Swedish artist Makode Linde at World art day 15 april 2012 at Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
Makode presented himself as an anatomical nude female red velvet cake and invited Sweden’s Minister of Culture to give him/her a symbolic cliteridectomy by cutting the genital slice first, while moaning and screaming. Then he ate the cake.
Swedish Culture Minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth denies doing anything wrong, according to the Guardian, but admits that Mr. Linde’s artistic statement about female genital mutilation in Africa may have been confusing.

WeWasteTime presents two new products, both plastic, pink and ready to conquer the market!
Barbie Architect, Mattel’s latest addition to their Barbie I Can Be line of dolls, complete with pink blueprint holder (an architect’s ideal colour), black glasses, pink ‘architecturally inspired dress showcasing a city skyline’ and trendy ankle boots that are combined with a helmet for maximum safety both in the construction site and in any unlevelled tough terrain and her ideal pink house model!
Barbie architect can be the perfect gift if combined with another product, colour matching and equally inventive: little dicky sipping straws,‘Skin Coloured Straws with Pink Willies on the Top (Bag of 10)’ (can be ordered here) (possibly not an ideal combination for underage tender souls)
For designing both of these products ‘real’ architects were consulted!
Or sex to die for! Sadomasochism, cannibalism, hermaphrodism, polygamy and all sorts of kinky habits; everything goes in animal reproduction and it is all very natural! In this hilarious and educational series Isabella Rossellini plays the male of each species in splendidly kitschy home-made costumes, while explaining the sexual procedures!
Watch them in Sundance Channel or some favourites here (snail, earthworm, praying mantis, spider and bee) :
