Book Review: While You’re Away, Part 1

There’s been a lot of buzz in the past year or so about the “new adult” genre. Seems like it’s still finding its legs. From what I can gather, the characters are a little older than those in young adult. There’s often some sort of college setting. Definitely more sex. Read More Book Review: While You’re Away, Part 1

I’m That Girl, So Sue Me: Cheating And The Bear Trap

Q. So I slept with a guy from work who has a girlfriend, yeah I know, I’m that girl so sue me, but I want to know what to do now. He’s obviously a jerk but all I want from him is sex. I want him because the sex is good and it’s kinky and I trust him even though he’s cheating on his GF with me. The problem is he’s so hot and cold with me. One minute he’s flirting and all is well and then next he’s a total douche. He broke our date to do it at my house and hasn’t brought up sex again. He ignores trivial texts I send. Ok… so if I wanna kept getting bonked how do I go about getting more of that and if I wanna ignore and discard him how do I go about that fashionably?

Dear Susan: “My ex-boss’s fiancee is doing him wrong. Should I spill the beans?”

Dear Susan,

So I know this person, my ex-boss, who is getting married this summer. He would constantly talk about how his wedding would be the wedding of the century, blah blah. This was before I, along with a bunch of other people quit/got laid off because his company was hemorrhaging money and said boss wasn’t dealing with the situation well. Recently, I heard that his fiancee had been stepping out on him (on a regular basis), ever since the company started losing money. Lies about hanging out with friends really meant something else. I’m not really close with said boss anymore and while it’s not my business, it still makes me feel kind of bad that I know that this is happening since he was always really kind to me and left me with a glowing recommendation when I left the company. Also, it sucks he’s marrying someone who’s kind of a golddigger and only with him because he pays for everything for her (he paid for her useless liposuction just before the company started operating in the red). Should I let it be? Should I be sociopathic and leak that info to one of his friends? I should really just ignore this, right? Not my business!

Remember the Yucatan: A Review of “Sex At Dawn”: How We Mate, Why We Stray and What It Means For Modern Relationships

“The sciences of human nature tend to validate the practices and preferences of whatever regime happens to be sponsoring them. In totalitarian regimes, dissidence is treated as mental illness. In apartheid regimes, interracial contact is treated as unnatural. In free-market regimes, self-interest is treated as hardwired.” Louis Menand Read More Remember the Yucatan: A Review of “Sex At Dawn”: How We Mate, Why We Stray and What It Means For Modern Relationships
