Mean Girls: A fairly accurate portrayal of Missouri's sexual-education policies.
Earlier this month conservative lawmakers hijacked a bill seeking to uproot Missouri's abstinence-focused sex-education laws. Now the sponsor of the proposed legislation, Democratic representative Clem Smith, says he's feeling more than a little betrayed.

"There was no warning and no legislative courtesy," Smith says, decrying the tactics that gutted his bill, House Bill 1904. Introduced in February, the bill was to overhaul state laws that mandate students learn about the "emotional trauma" of adolescent sex. Instead, legislators morphed the bill into a slightly tweaked mirror image of the existing law.

"They put a Ginsu knife to it and chopped up 90 percent of my bill," bemoans Smith.

Gents, Sammy Tramp would like to have a word with you.
Hey dudes, it's quiz time: Let's say you like a girl and want her attention. Do you:

A. Buy her flowers.
B. Read a novel so you can offer intelligent-sounding sentences during conversation.
C. Send her a dick pic and a badly misspelled text message -- "nice titssss. fwb?"

Too many guys fail this test, says St. Louis vaudeville performer Kyla Louise Webb. So she wrote a song about it. The tune, titled "Don't Send a Dick Pic," is catchy as hell and contains strongly worded advice to guys who choose Option C.

Jordan Ward Finder starred in her own episode of 16 and Pregnant.
Jordan Ward Finder admits she's no expert on birth control.

The twenty-year-old mother of two was jettisoned to fame on 16 and Pregnant, the popular MTV show about teen moms in their last weeks of pregnancy and first weeks of parenthood. One episode follows Finder, who grew up in south county and dropped out of high school with her twin sister to pursue a modeling career, as she gives birth to her son Noah.

So when the National Bureau of Economic Research published a study that showed 16 and Pregnant is responsible for a remarkable one-third reduction in the U.S. teen birth rate, Daily RFT had to ask: Is 16 and Pregnant its own form of birth control?

Daniel Stern
By his mid-twenties, Daniel Stern knew he was "horrendous" at sex.

"To say that I was proficient in premature ejaculation," he recalls, "would be a compliment."

OK, so maybe Stern is overstating things just a bit. But give the guy a break: Now a sexually empowered 38-year-old, the St. Louis-born screenwriter is kind of an unofficial spokes-stud for the swinger lifestyle by way of his first book: Swingland: Between the Sheets of the Secretive, Sometimes Messy, but Always Adventurous Swinging Lifestyle.

Lizzy Caplan as Virginia Johnson and Michael Sheen as William Masters
Masters of Sex, the Showtime series about the lives and careers of the legendary St. Louis Washington University sex researchers Masters and Johnson premieres on Sunday, two months after Virginia Johnson died at 88 in hospice in south St. Louis. (Masters died in 2001.) Johnson's biographer Thomas Maier -- upon whose book the show is based -- told Daily RFT that though he lamented the fact that she did not live to see the portrayal of herself on the small screen, he was sure she would have been pleased.

We've been anxiously awaiting the premiere since the pilot was announced two years ago and will be watching with eagle eyes -- after all, the show is set in St. Louis (though it's not been filmed here), it portrays two of our most famous citizens and we're dying to see the Gateway City portrayed in the 1950s and '60s.

Amy Nicholson, the TV critic for our sister paper LA Weekly has already gotten a sneak peek of the show and talked with series creator Michelle Ashford. Click through to find out why she says Masters of Sex is "smart, cold and cutting" -- Edit.
