A pioneering virtual vagina that doubles up as a sex toy has been taken off the market due to popularity.

VirtuaDolls allows the gamer to strap on a VR helmet, sleep with computer-generated women and be pleasured by the device but so many horny men tried to pre-order it on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo that the creators were forced to "put the project on hold." In a series of tweets, the firm behind VirtuaDolls admitted demand for their virtual vagina was far more than expected, but promised to be back on track in due course. Taking to their official Twitter account, it wrote: "#VirtuaDolls had to be put on hold for a couple weeks. Rest assured we will be back! Just have to take steps to prep for a larger demand! (sic)"

A man claims he'd won PS250,000 on a scratchcard and gets a funny response from the National Lottery.

Johnny Smith wrote on his Facebook page: "Hi National Lottery! I bought this scratchcard recently and as you can clearly see I have revealed 3 PS250,000 figures in the end column meaning I should be able to start shopping at Waitrose in the near future. Unfortunately both bar codes on the reverse side have been removed by a small fire. This completely accidental inferno has also damaged the game number on the front side. I may also add that due to my clumsyness, in a completely seperate incident i have also spilt pen ink on the other identifying number in the game column. Just my bloody luck eh!? Just to conclude, if you dont mind sending me a direct message to confirm that this is a winner I would be more than happy to pass on my postal address so you can send me my winners cheque (sic)." But he certainly wasn't expecting the response he got as the firm got back to him and told him to "completely fire proof" his home and not trade ink for pencils. The lotto company then informed him he'd not won the prize because he'd clearly stuck the third PS250,000 from another card onto his.

Women yawn twice as much as men do. Tests were first conducted on apes which found the female of the species are more susceptible to reacting to sleepy signals.

But scientists have now discovered that humans are afflicted with the condition too and ladies are twice as likely to catch a yawning bout because they empathise with other people's feelings more than men. What's more, rates are higher between friends, relatives and acquaintances.
