News Busters sez "cheap slap at Catholics" to a feature in today's LA Times (reg. required), printing this quote from The Times' coverage of Erotica LA:

Payne, who earns $250 an hour, was about to demonstrate the fine art of spanking, which — contrary to what you might think — is not as simple as it looks. The hand should be cupped, not flat, she explained, and positioned on the lower part of the buttocks, never at the top, never on the leg and never ever near the tailbone. "If your husband went to Catholic school," the 32-year-old Payne said with a sly smile, "he's probably secretly dying for it."

We're secretly bummed we didn't go to this Erotica LA, officially.+ How To Suck At MySpace

+ Congratulations "A Socialite's Life" for getting hold of a picture from Brangelina's baby shower as it got passed around like a hot potato. Weird, since it's probably the best picture we've seen of them in quite some time.
