What Miles got right about the orgasm.
https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/study-straight-women-are-having-fewer-orgasms-because-of-their-useless-partners?utm_source=vicefbus This article ran in Broadly and references a study done by Chapman University and the Kinsey institute. If you're too busy to read it, I'll sum it up for you. Lesbians orgasm more than heteros because they know how to get a woman off. The secret? What the researchers call the golden trio: Genital stimulation, deep kissing, and oral sex. We
Yet another thing to feel anxious about.
I have many recurring nightmares: teeth falling out, swimming with sharks, being stuck in precarious high places, but yesterday I had a nightmare I've never had before and it was so bad I couldn't get back to sleep. This is what I dreamed: my oldest son didn't get into and couldn't afford any of the colleges he applied to and as a last resort was filling out an application to Stanilaus State, Turkey Tech. He wailed at me, "Why am I doing this? I don't even want to go to this

DVD Review: Robin Hood
I saw this a week ago but I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. It was what I expected — really good action and fighting scenes and lots of sweaty, dirty, smoky medieval skin and clothing. It was like going to a restaurant such as Chez Panisse where you expect a terrific meal and all the ingredients are perfect and the service is as good as it can get and your date is pleasant and yet it all doesn’t come together and you feel as if you paid too much. The plot: this is the tale o
A 500-word story by request: What doesn’t happen at the Olive Garden.
I went to a literary soiree a while back and a good and famous writing friend told me that this was one of her favorite stories of all time. Go figure. So all these other literary sorts were asking me where they could read it. (Like it had been in the New Yorker or something.) So, previously only available on my laptop, I give you: “What doesn’t happen at the Olive Garden” 495 words Nina had driven out from Stockton so her son, Jonathan, and his boyfriend, Tim, could bring he
DVD Review: An Education
The critics loved this movie. It’s about Jenny (Carey Mulligan), a smart, pretty girl in 1960s London who is working hard in school to please her father and get into Oxford and whose plans get derailed when she is seduced by an older Jewish con man, David (Peter Sarsgaard). Nowadays, we call men like him “players.” He’s got game and not only has Jenny wrapped around his little finger but her parents, as well. How can I critique this without giving away the story? It’s not The
Book review: The Help
I don’t need to sell you on this book: it’s already a bestseller and most of you have probably read it. I’d like to talk about it though. I really loved it. In fact, I devoured it in three days. It was one of those books that’s easy to read and has a driving story line with enough mysteries to make me want answers. However, the whole time I was reading it I kept asking myself if I’d like it more if it were written by a black woman? The author is white and Southern who (I foun
