Ridiculous Study of the Week: Depressed Vagina

Okay, this is kind of bogus.  The title of the NY Post article caught my attention:

Vaginas absolutely need sex or they’ll waste away: study

The article actually has good information for women but there actually was no study!  I even went to the UK Sun where it was lifted from and again no study.  I do find it interesting that the picture is the same pose but naked in the English version.

Does anyone even fact check these articles anymore?   How does one claim a study and never mention it?  Where is the editor?

Please tell me if I am missing something here.

    The Brits are a bit more provocative in their publications than ours. Hence more bare skin.
    You’d think they’re more “Victorian” or prudish but they aren’t. Sheesh, I’d fit in real nice over
    there as long as I had enough to retire on and didn’t have to work!

    I think they are both owned by Murdoch.
    You are right, no one checks anything.
