A Portrait of Codependency right here. We are only as good as whomever we're fucking. And I disagree with Alina's summation of this 3 AM short story, "How did smack become the classic foreplay?" Maybe it's because -- too me at least-- an attractive attribute is prioritizing love/sex/romance very low in one's creative and intellectual pursuits, whether that means retreating for several years in the Gobi desert, or killing his self on the installment plan. I was telling a friend the other day my intentions to move to somewhere Third World as soon as I get (officially) out of school. "But you'll never get laid!" she told me. Maybe, maybe not. I'd rather go on about my ways a Free Byrd (even if a celibate one) than live a disatisfying conventional life with as many second-rate partners as I can pencil in.

We Aren't Sluts

Sandy Asirvatham for the Baltimore City Paper explains new finding suggests that "women who like to fuck around ... are not evolutionary freaks after all." She cncludes her findings with this:
I knew many sluts of both sexes in my late teens and early 20s. Some were wallowing in self-loathing and a kind of mind-from-body detachment generously fueled by inhibition-dampening substances; others were openly rebelling against the sexual rules promulgated by their parents; still others, it seems, were staving off boredom until their soul mates came along [my italics].
