CNN Travel this morning published a piece of breathtakingly shameless link bait, in the form of a survey cataloging the nationalities that American men and women find sexiest. The poll itself comes from Misstravel.com, while the article itself is arguably a followup to CNN's 2011 reporting on a survey cataloging the world's coolest nationalities. Travel journalism ebbs and flows.
If this came out any day of the week that wasn't Friday, obviously we'd feel guilty passing it along. But it's sunny outside, and there are patios filled with tables at establishments that serve drinks. So "sexiest nationalities" it is. It's either that or a post about the new Goop City Guides app. And why end the week on an ugly note, ya know?
Don't let the title put you off, this post isn't NSFW. Cabbages & Condoms is a portfolio of restaurants in Thailand that serves up delicious Thai cuisine while nonchalantly discussing the importance of safe-sex and sexually transmitted diseases.
Okay, we agree this might not be the best dinner-party topic, but it's all for a greater cause.
We recently checked out the Bangkok outpost and were pleasantly surprised to find mannequins outfitted in fashion made from condoms and birth-control pills—kind of like Project Runway meets a local clinic-turned-restaurant. Seems like a natural progression, right?
During a recent stay at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, we mentioned to a local how we were looking to explore the local nightlife scene. He rattled off a few nearby bars, none of them too appealing, and then casually mentioned a male strip club about five miles away in North Miami Beach.
He even had a car, he said, and could give us a ride.
Four hours later, we were zipping down Biscayne Boulevard on our way to Swinging Richards.
When Jaunted's newbie traveler visited Amsterdam's infamous red-light district one of the first things he noticed is that the women were "really young and actually beautiful." Other Jaunted staff members have noted that the prostitutes behind the glass are really young and terminally bored. Either way, the "really young" part is something most people quickly notice, and stems from the fact that the legal age to become a prostitute in Amsterdam is 18.
Was 18. The legal age has now been raised to 21, according to an announcement made in the Dutch capital city. The announcement went on to explain that this was being done to "strengthen prostitutes' position," which seems straightforward enough. It's also pretty close to a "that's what she said" joke, although it's not quite there (which actually is a "that's what she said" joke).

What is the turn of a new year without a flight attendant calendar controversy? This year, the award for naughty airline calendar goes to Thai budget airline Nok Air, whose slogan is "We Fly Smiles."
They also apparently fly scantily clad, as Nok's Facebook previewed three photos from the calendar as part of a contest to win a free copy. Each of the teaser photos (shown here) are now angering the Thailand Ministry of Culture, on the grounds that the image doesn't promote the country in a proper, positive light. That doesn't mean the Ministry of Culture can stop Nok from printing their calendars, though, so the contest to give away 300 of them continues.
Gather around children, whilst we explain the difference between correlation and causation. This might sound a little bit condescending and pedantic, but that's only because we're going out of our way be condescending and pedantic. Ready?
Causation is when A causes B. Correlation is merely when A and B vary together in some way. Maybe it's because A is actually causing B. But maybe it's because B causing A, or maybe it's because they're both being caused by C, or maybe it's because A and B are actually the same thing, and so on. Easy enough, right?

Just in case you haven't walked within a few feet of the greeting card section of your local drugstore, this week is Valentine's Day. Consider this fair warning if you haven't already scrambled to buy chocolates or flowers, but if you don't have a special one just yet, Jetstar has the solution to your problem. "LoveJet"! (cue the cheesy music)
The Australian low-cost carrier has hooked up with Aussie dating site, RSVP, to bring the world some real (multi-)mile-high dating. Last year, we saw KLM try to pair passengers looking for interesting conversation and a possible love connection, but Jetstar is actually planning on making the relationship magic happen.
We understand that 2013 has pretty much just started, but when it comes to planning for something as big as the World Cup it pays to start as early as possible. We’re not surprised that the folks in Brazil have been putting in the overtime to ensure that everything is ready to go before the very first kick-off. What is a little surprising is that the prostitutes are also getting ready as well, but for them it’s all about studying.
Prostitutes want to be prepared for all the tourists heading to the country in little over a year, so they’re signing up for English language courses. After all it’s a little bit easier to negotiate the terms of a deal when you’re both sharing the same way of communication. Prostitution is legal in Brazil—that’s a fun fact—and the advocacy groups are going all in to ensure that the ladies are prepared as possible.
This. This right here. This is what we're talking about when we say we're giving up on the debate over Ryanair and its aggressive douchebaggery. The airline goes out of its way to insult its customers, and yet finds itself rewarded with consistent profits. So why shouldn't it treat its own staff in the same disrespectful way?
The question kind of answers itself, doesn't it?
Bestselling book series Fifty Shades of Grey has turned the publishing world on its head and started a national campaign to cast Hollywood stars in the lead roles for the movie version. The books are set in the Seattle area, so now hotels throughout the Pacific Northwest are trying to cash in on the phenomenon by offering themed tourist packages.
For example, Seattle's Hotel Max is offering up a chauffeured town car, a helicopter tour of the city and a private sail in Puget Sound "with a bottle of Bollinger Grande Annee Rose 1999 Champagne, a favorite of Mr. Grey himself.

You may know that the book Fifty Shades of Grey has sold over 10 million copies and continues to sit at the top of the best sellers list. You may also know that the book is actually Twilight fan fiction, thought the storyline focuses on a virgin who makes an "arrangement" with a wealthy man, an arrangement that involves kinky sex.
Now, what you probably don't know is that there's a way to read the book without having the buy it, without having to walk around carrying the obvious cover and without having to take time out of your day.
It turns out there are lots of good-looking people in Tel Aviv. Israel and Israelis long ago became a mainstay of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues, and of course Tel Aviv itself is both a home and a dining destination for none other than Bar Refaeli. But some people remained unconvinced that Israel's largest beach city was an epicenter of attractiveness. Now there are numbers on this question.
Earlier this year online travel mag Travelers Digest published its roundup of global cities with the best looking men and women. The lists circulated around the Internet for a while, and then dropped off as these things do, and then were revived last week when they got picked up by an Israeli culture blog. Tel Aviv ranked 7th for hottest women and ranked 10th for hottest men. The writeup on the women's list included the phrase "exotic and appealing," which makes a lot sense since Israeli women are both of those things, and the men's list discussed "artistic Bauhaus architecture," which made less sense.
