Around the papers  
Firstly, there's a short piece in Time magazine about a study into pain which makes interesting reading. It claims that women actually feel pain more intensely than men, but then shoots itself in the foot by revealing that the study from which the conclusion was drawn may well have a cultural/ gender bias. Patients were asked to self-report their pain levels, in most cases to a female nurse. For men, apparently, that may have been cause enough for them to under-report their pain levels. *g*

The Valentine's Day advertising is ramping up too. Lead-in products in one chemist's ads are condoms and lube. See, who said romance was dead?
