The Weekly: More Evidence Monogamy is Lame

Haven’t done one of these in awhile, but I found more evidence that monogamy is for the birds. The first is Monogamy unnatural for our sexy species, by psychologist and author Christopher Ryan.

Money quote:

Women’s pendulous breasts, impossible-to-ignore cries of sexual delight, or “female copulatory vocalization” to the clipboard-carrying crowd, and capacity for multiple orgasms also validate this story of prehistoric promiscuity.

Well duuh that’s like in every PUA manual out there, but nice that he pointed out that chicks are designed to be sex machines. On CNN.com. As you can imagine, there were some strongly worded comments following the post.

A Misunderstanding, Finally Cleared

So, apparently there has been a misunderstanding between Jake and I that I didn’t even know about – but that is now resolved.  Here’s the story:

When I was an undergrad in Florida, I was in love with this fellow I worked with.  Let’s call him Brent.  Brent was an MA student in Literature, and to my eyes intelligent, funny, and good-looking.  I had a raging crush on him, which didn’t seem to be reciprocated – which was fine since I was dating someone anyway.

How’d You Get That Hickey, Eh?

So the other day I noticed that I had what appeared to be a hickey.  A bruise on my neck that was both discolored and tender.

That’s strange, I thought.  Jake hasn’t given me a hickey.

Then I panicked.  What if he asks me how I got it?!  I certainly hadn’t gotten a hickey from someone else, but “I have no idea how that got there” is hardly a satisfactory answer – after what happened in July, I certainly wouldn’t accept that answer from Jake.

Then after my yoga class I was walking to my car, and thought, Ouch!  The strap from my gym bag is rubbing right against…

Oh.

Success: Trappings v. Substance

Lance’s fantastic blog post about how accomplishment makes you more attractive really got me thinking.  I feel like what he says is relevant to the negative effect of the BF’s job on his health and decision-making, which has really got the BF and I revisiting a lot of things.

See, he went to grad school for a terminal degree in his field because he knew that he could become very wealthy working in private practice in that industry.  What he didn’t bank on was: Continued

Drinking, Cheating, and Other Concerns

I am not in a very good place right now.  Every summer, the BF’s supervisor takes a month-long vacation (must be nice) leaving the BF all his normal work plus all his supervisor’s work for that month.  Even though summer is the slowest time in his office, then, he’s always stressed out and overworked.  He has yet to find a constructive way to deal with this.

Last year, it was kidney stones.  This year, it has been binge drinking.

And then Wednesday night I caught him embracing another woman.  Here’s how it went down (times are approximate): Continued

How Much Do You Care That Spitzer Nailed a Hooker and Can He Save Our Economy?

Remember Eliot Spitzer, the New York governor who got pimped out of office last year for nailing a high priced hooker? Well, he’s back in the news and I tell you, I totally love this guy. Seriously, I do. Why? Because he sits at the intersection of politics, economics, bad relationship decisions, and $1000-an-hour hookers. You can’t beat that.

Spitzer was recently interviewed on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS about everything from the AIG bailout to the screwed up economy to his marriage. The interview is interesting and well worth checking out. Total run time is about 20 minutes:
