Intercourse: It’s Not Just a City in Pennsylvania
This post wasn’t actually inspired by any particular city, but by the fact that the TOP5 most read posts of last year were all about sex, and every one of them came from a series I now affectionately refer to as The Sexual Intercourse. Since this topic seems to resonate so powerfully with so many, I thought I’d synopsize the entire series here for posterity. [read more]
The Five Sex Lies
If hushing up had been the cause of the trouble, ventilation would have set it right. But it has not.

Now he gives her a key.
Or maybe she gives him a key.
Or maybe they share keys.
Not the keys to their heart, mind you, although they might romanticize it like that.
