Dear Man Who Propositioned Me For Sex On The Subway,
Why is it that after I respectfully responded “no, thanks” to your subway sex proposition, you found it necessary to call me a “bitch”? Have you not seen the movie “Shame”? Even an exceptionally fantastic looking guy like Michael Fassbender (who, might I add, was playing a sex addict) found it difficult to come on to a girl while riding the train because he feared rejection.
But you sir, wearing that hideous shirt, those skinny jeans which were obviously washed one time too many because they revealed your ankles, a pair of busted Converse, with a chip-toothed, yellow grin, thought that your offer to leave the train with you on 23rd street “to hang out at your house” should have been received with excitement.

Here’s a fun one for you. Let me say first: People never cease to impress me with their strangeness. This week, in Slate’s Dear Prudence column, a woman ponders whether or not she should date the guy at the gym who SNIFFED HER SWEATY BICYCLE SEAT. Keep reading »
Ladies, in case you weren’t aware, while that teeny tiny egg makes its way down your fallopian tubes, your hormones are making you do all kinds of weird crap you have no awareness of. It’s like an alien inhabits your body and coerces it into behavior that you would never dream of the other 27 days of the month. Click through to find out how ovulation is subtly controlling your life.
Take note: just in case you are planning to see “The Hunger Games” this weekend — I think most people are, right? — legendary sex advice columnist Dr. Ruth (yes, she’s still alive and kicking!) took to Twitter to issue a warning! She says that the flick’s violent nature makes it a bit of a boner killer. The good doctor recommends that you and your date bone before the movie. We thank her for the advice.
Mike Stone, an 18-year-old high school student, landed his dream date for prom. The Minnesota teen launched a Twitter campaign to try to get adult film star Megan Piper to accompany him to the big dance. Megan agreed under the condition that Mike cover her travel. But the faculty did not agree. District officials claim that Megan’s presence at the prom “would violate school policies pertaining visitors.” Mike is devastated, Megan is “not thrilled” but understands and Mike’s parents are furious about being publicly “embarrassed.” Twitter followers have launched the hashtag #Porn4prom to overturn the school’s decision, but I don’t think that’s happening. The principal advised Mike to pick another date.
I think I actually agree with the principal on this one. As a former teacher, I know that you have to be very careful about what you endorse — or at least appear to endorse. Even if you’re not directly saying, “Hey kids, it’s cool for you to look at porn.” A “yes” to a porn star at prom can be construed as an endorsement. And remember, many the students are likely under the age of 18. Sorry Mike, you may want to try going to prom with someone a little bit less provocative. [NY Daily News]
