Sinplex Weekend

There are two sexually transmitted infections that are kind of in a class by themselves:  herpes and HPV.  What makes them unique is that they are generally non-life-threatening, but also incurable.  HPV is usually cleared by a person's immune system after a few years, but herpes is around for life.

it'll keep poppin' in from time to time, just to say hi

Oh, Baby, I Want You...To Sign This, Please

The forties were a crazy time in America.  There was WAR and insane racism but also great shoes and delicious, delicious Gene Kelly.  There was also this:

Who needs moonlight and roses when there's paperwork?!

A gentleman could give this to a lady prior to having casual sex with her, in case said lady thought said gentleman might marry her or something, which he would most certainly not do.  It was also useful in case the cops barged in because they suspected a fee-for-service situation.  Or that he trafficking her, which is also what the Mann Act (officially the White Slave Traffic Act) was (and is) about.

I'm all about communication - you don't accrue the kind of debt I'm currently in the process of expanding to become a therapist if you're not.  But a pre-coital agreement is taking it a little far, I think.  I know it was a different time and all...but dang.

Andrej Pejic

I've become somewhat of a fashion junkie in the past few years.  I used to hate the fashion industry, on account of it being shallow and excessive and a major sponsor of turning "beautiful" into "looking like you're starving".  And it is those things, but mostly only if you take it seriously as, like, a lifestyle.

Case in point

Sex Laws So Dumb You Just Have To Wonder

There are plenty of laws I think are pretty stupid.  I'm not going to go into which these are, but let's just say that I believe that most adult people should pretty much be allowed to do what they want in their private time, provided it's consensual and not harmful to themselves or others.

But then there are those laws where you just have to think...what the hell happened to whose cousin's nephew to have such trivial things made into actual LAW?  For instance, here in Washington, it's illegal - actually illegal - to break someone else's full beer receptacles, like bottles, kegs or casks.  I mean, yeah, it's a dick move to wreck someone's beer, but does it really require legislative action?

If Washington were Donkey Kong,
Mario would be a barrel-breakin' OUTLAW
