Should Candace Cameron Bure’s have posted a personal photo on her Instagram account? Certainly. There was no controversy here, and no apology was necessary. I’m pleased that none was given, either. Her television father, Bob Saget, agrees with me. There is something sweet about this photo of Ms. Bure and her husband with his hand…

  I don’t want to criticize Atlanta and its suburbs,  which have given Michael Morrison such a hard time, as prudish or retrograde.  We recall that, in the recent US presidential elections, Atlanta has emerged as a bastion of liberalism, and Joe Biden carried Georgia!  So, in Georgia, they must be doing something right.  It’s…

where do the legs go

It’s hard to tell who gives more awful sex advice: the media or the experts.   Much of the media’s depiction of sex seems directed at 14-year-olds, who can’t figure out where the legs go.  The experts seem completely hung up on making people feel good about themselves, which is not really the name of…

Advice for the 1950s

Dr. Ruth Westheimer, who fled Germany in 1938 as an orphan of the Holocaust, is very much a child of the twentieth century.  But why is she answering viewers’ questions about sex in the age of the coronavirus on CNN? How is she still relevant? A Voice of the 1950s Dr. Ruth has made her…

Prison

NXIVM sex cult leader Keith Raniere has been sentenced to 120 years in prison. That doesn’t surprise me. Wealthy young women tend to have a thing for sex and violence cults.  Keith Raniere would have been just another two-bit sex-cult leader if he hadn’t enticed Claire Bronfman, heiress of the famous Bronfman family, and India…

Jeffrey Toobin and the Zoom Call

The story of the downfall of Jeffrey Toobin because he was caught maturbating during a video call interests me, because not for the reasons you might expect. What’s fascinating to me is the reaction of his colleagues to Toobin’s behavior during this infamous Zoom call, not Toobin’s own colossal lack of judgment. A Colossally Ordinary…

The photo of Rudy Giuliani with his hand in his pants is a Currier and Ives miniature of the whole Trump mob with their hand in our pants.  The irony is just stunning. Giuliani went to this hotel room anticipating an hour (more like five minutes) of bliss. Who Will Cleanse the Sins of the…

red light district

De Wallen’s Problems It is unfortunate to see Amsterdam’s red light district, De Wallen, turn into a ghost town. COVID-19 is only part of the issue. The problem with De Wallen was that it made prostitution seem as if prostitution were degrading.  There were these provocative women, displayed in shop windows, one after another, as…

Arrest of Adult film star Ron Jeremy

The only question about porn actor/filmmaker/comedian Ron Jeremy’s being charged with rape is: Why did it take so long? Only Some of the “Thousands of Women” Were Paid Professionals Jeremy boasted over the years of having had sex with “thousands” of women. He had most of this activity, of course, on camera, as the adult…
