Wow, Dan, you were really easy-going on BBTB there. She thinks porn is *oppressing* women?? I suppose she thinks it's less oppressive in countries where women are forced to behave modestly or get stoned to death. What she should do, IMO (and what I was expecting you to tell her, as you've told many others) is explain to her son that porn is kabuki sex and the real thing won't be like that, and then encourage him - without pressuring him - to come to her with questions. And then go out and buy him some friggin' Playboys - Playboy is more erotica than porn anyway, it's tasteful and even artistic in its way. My husband has a trunk full of old Playboys and I like to look through them myself from time to time.

I was nervous when I found out that my husband (then boyfriend) rode a motorcycle. But after I went riding with him a few times the nervousness greatly reduced. I still worry a bit, but not much more than I worry about him driving a car. Motorcyclists are often much better and safer drivers than people in automobiles; they have to watch out for everybody on the road, because most often car-drivers are not aware of them. And there are many advantages to riding a motorcycle, such as gas mileage - even a big, heavy Harley-Davidson can get 40-50 miles to the gallon. It's also much easier to find parking. And on a motorcycle you don't get caught in traffic jams, because it's possible - and *legal* - for a motorcyclist to drive between all the stopped cars.

Ha, the ring letter reminded me of my own engagement ring story - I just wanted opals, because they're my favorite stone, pretty and colorful (and not very expensive), and I didn't want a diamond because I think they're boring. But both my husband and my Mom ganged up on me and insisted on a diamond, so in the end my husband bought three unset stones - a diamond and two black opals - and a ring with a three-stone setting, and we had a jeweler set the stones. So now I have a unique custom ring, a diamond with opal accents. (You usually won't find diamonds set with opals, apparently because diamonds are such a hard stone and opals are soft.)

The Gay Adonis letter made me think of Grandpa Simpson's rant: "Dear television producers, I am DISGUSTED with the way old people are portrayed on television these days. We are NOT all vibrant, fun-loving sex maniacs! Many of us are BITTER, RESENTFUL individuals, who remember the good old days, when entertainment was bland and inoffensive!"

Boy I'd like a closer look at the "studies" that found fetuses embedded in the uteri of women who took birth control. That ain't how the pill works, dumbass.

So, Dan, you're terrified of spiders. BEHOLD!

We had our wedding on the beach in Malibu, and brought the whole thing off for less than two grand. Big, lush, expensive weddings are ridiculous.

The only thing gun regulations do is make it harder for sane, law-abiding citizens to obtain guns. Outlaws and psychos are not going to be deterred by waiting periods and permits.

Y'know, methinks Dan doth protest too much about the Sexy Christmas pics. Maybe he's secretly turned on by them but finds it disturbing. :D

My husband has some light bondage gear, had it when I met him - it never freaked me out. Like you yourself have pointed out, Dan, BDSM is now so far out of the closet that it's almost vanilla. :D
