College student Sandra Fluke had the guts to testify to Congress about her sex life, all in the name of defending common sense when it comes to contraception.

For that, Rush Limbaugh called her a slut. (President Obama, on the other hand, phoned her with encouragement.)

Limbaugh said of her remarks: ""It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We're the pimps."

He also said since taxpayers might be paying for contraceptives (They won't be, by the way; insurance companies will), she and all women should post videos of their sexual encounters so male taxpayers could watch.

The webs blew up with calls for people to contact Limbaugh's sponsors.

Some screengrabs of their Twitter accounts show how some of the companies are handling it.

Sleep Train Mattress loudly took their ads off the show:
