Sexism in the Olympics

    This is one of those stories where one doesn’t know whether to poop or go blind.  The women had to struggle so hard to get ski-jumping listed as an Olympic sport.  And now they face these apparently quite arbitrary disqualifications. Canada’s Abigail Strate, the winner by default, said, “. . .  just goes to…

Is Stormy Daniels a Prostitute?

Is Stormy Daniels a prostitute?  This question has now been answered in the affirmative by the online media, and it is generally assumed that Trump gave her money for the one time (or few times) that he had sex with her. Pornography Is Lucrative Here is a fact that has not really been brought out…

Jeff Zucker Chooses Romance Over Human Resources

killing romance

Romance or Human Resources? I get it.  I know why companies insist on work colleagues making a declaration if they become involved — even if Jeff Zucker is involved.  It’s to protect the less powerful one — usually the woman — from retaliation if things go south. This is actually quite a laudable objective, but…

The Debate About Public Sex

public sex

  People are having a debate about whether this is appropriate for air travel?  I can’t believe it.  The scene — a man pulling a woman on a leash — down the aisle of an airplane is so grossly inappropriate that a debate would be moronic. Would this be appropriate on a public street?  That’s…

The Eroticizing of Handball

bikinis and handball

Should handball compete with porn? The insistence of the International Handball Federation that women compete wearing bikini bottoms is worse than just “embarrassing,” as though someone had broken wind at the awards dinner.  It is so grossly inappropriate for 2021 that one doesn’t know whether to poop or go blind. We are supposed to be…

Sex Toys and Celebrities

sex toys

  Celebrities endorse sex toys.  Why is this even a story?  Would “Celebrities endorse toothpaste” be as newsworthy? This story would be remotely interesting only if there were a big portion of the population against sex toys.  But outside of Sunday school, who’s opposed to sex toys? There are basically two kinds of sex toys:…

Myths About Massage and Prostitution

“Well, duh!” is my response to shocker stories about massage schools enabling prostitution.  The problem is, why should anyone care? State regulation of massage is based on two premises: (1) that prostitution is bad and (2) that massage requires skills so specialized that the state must protect the public by ensuring that applicants have them.…
