New York Times: The iconic bachelor pad is alive and well (thank God, we were worried) and Hugh Hefner says "we're only on the threshold" of defining what it means to be a single woman. By "we're" let's hope he means society, not Playboy. Also, induced labors are handy for mothers but drain hospital resources.

Nerve: Mary Harron talks about her 14-year-long commitment to producing a biopic about retro pinup girl Bettie Page, who, it turns out, was more than just a steamy sexpot. (You don't say!)


Washington Post: Some "missing" from Katrina are really on the run from abusive relationships. Also, Erica Jong chucks "zipless" sex for real intimacy.

San Francisco Chronicle: What does eHarmony get for refusing to hook up a married lawyer with a date? A lawsuit. Also, women seek realistic, commitment-free online gaming.
