    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Last night we made a date with a girl named Kiki. While we've always loved the pitch-perfect lingerie and boudoir essentials at Soho's Kiki de Montparnasse, we'll admit we've often been intimidated by some of the brand's more (ahem) salacious items. That said, we couldn't resist testing the waters at the flagship's newly-launched instructional salon series—especially after we were lucky enough to receive an invite to the inaugural session, Partner Play. (Solo. Not that you asked.)

    For those who are also considering a trip to one of the remaining lessions, which include "Celebration of the Sensual Self," "The Art of Seduction," and "Bedroom Games" (priced at $45-$65 a ticket), let us give you  a glimpse of what you'e in for: The night consisted of two hours of champagne and aphrodisiac nibbles, goodie drawer product introduction, requisite nervous giggles, and technical pointers courtesy of salon hostess (and striking-yet-gracious dominatrix) Domina K.

    Out of love for Kiki, we were happy to respect the "no picture" policy. But out of love for style, we had to indulge in some show-and-tell. Check out a few beatiful, wearable items from last night's lesson below. Those brave enough to try venturing beyond Kiki de Montparnasse's exquisite selection of lingerie and bedroom wear can get more information on the classes at kikidm.com.
