Same story, this time from owner of Lethe Press, an LGBT-focused publisher, on Salon.

Bodice ripper in new hands

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/03/business/media/news-corp-to-acquire-harlequin-enterprises.html

Okay, I borrowed the headline from The Passive Voice, because I was struck by the simplicity yet elegance of it. Nothing new of note, really, although I think we need a new phrase to replace "bodice ripper". Nobody rips bodices anymore. But I can't think of anything at the moment. "Broody copulator"? Nah, doesn't have the same ring.

PornHub is giving America "serious wood" in more than one way: watch 100 videos in their "Big Dick" category and these folks would plant a tree on your behalf. Awesome.
