Maybe you’re planning to try something special, sexually speaking, this Valentine’s Day. Or maybe you’re a human being and you have sexual fantasies year-round and not just on February 14th. Yes, that sounds more accurate. The fact is no matter what day of the year, most of us have recurring themes in our erotic imaginations. If Sigmund Freud were your analyst, he would encourage you to find the meaning underneath those urges. Alas, Freud is dead, but luckily we’re here, and more than willing to give it our best shot.

My roommate and I joke that her cat is kind of our joint boyfriend. Like a human boyfriend, Boo is very affectionate, loves to pick food off our plates, and throws the occasional temper tantrum which can only be quelled with cooing and snuggles.
