If you're not in or on your way to Austin, Texas for SXSW, be consoled: those of us who are here won't be able to use our cell phones, drive across town or get brunch in a timely fashion for the next week and a half. #Firstworldproblems, amirite? Be also consoled with this, our favorite posts from our favorite ladyblogs, which will make you laugh, make you cry, and remind you that there is more important shit in the world than unlocking SXSW Foursquare badges.

I love how studies like the one on women's sex lives completely ignore cultural influences. Maybe women in the 75-85 bracket have bad sex/are less interested in sex because they are of a different generation of women, and a generation that maybe wasn't always so aware of how to make sex better or how to ask for what they wanted or whatever. I'm just saying, there might be more going on here than just ladies getting older.
