Since every third column I've run recently has harked back to one I wrote about the movie Secretary a couple of years back, I thought I'd bring it full circle, and then let's all move on to something else. Here's the original (published in fall 2005).
My manager is leaving at the end of the month. I'm pretty sure from hints that he's dropped that he's into S-M, particularly whipping. I'm attracted to him and I believe it's mutual. Read more »
I just saw Secretary yesterday, and then read your column that mentions the same movie and similar sentiment ["Thwang," 5/30/07]. My situation is a bit different because I've known how I feel for a while but never seen or experienced it. Also, I'm a stripper and rarely have sex but am extremely sexual. I've got a serious lust affair with the eroscillator but think I've maybe given up on a love that will be feminist but dominating and aggressive, too. Read more »
I am writing to quibble with your response to Imagine ["You May Find Yourself ...," 11/8/06], the fellow in college who complained that after "a couple of rounds a day for a few months," he had difficulty reaching orgasm without either fantasizing about another woman or taking matters into his own hands.

I have always enjoyed having women walk all over me with lots of stomach stomping. Shoes, boots, or barefoot, this is something that I crave daily. Now my problem is that after doing this for most of my life, I just can't seem to find women who are cruel enough. I try to select women who are 200-plus pounds, but even they leave me needing more (though it hurts like hell). I know my body can't take much more, but I enjoy it. I just can't get stomped hard enough. Read more »
I'm married to the woman of my dreams and the love of my life. My problem is that with women in the past I've always really enjoyed doing it doggy-style. I find it a total visual-animal turn-on, and of course there's the physical pleasure of the position itself ... need I say more? My problem is that my wife and I have never been able to get into the position because of our configuration (I'm tall; she's short). And though it doesn't bother her, I definitely miss being able to do it that way. Read more »
My boyfriend and I are in our late 20s. He's unable to have sex more than once a day, nor does he want to, even when we've been separated. He can't get it up again even hours later, though we rarely try. He isn't interested as often as I am in general.
My other lovers were often rarin' to go soon after, or at least interested. My impression is that this is normal, particularly for young men. He's unconcerned, but I feel rather unsatisfied and worry that with age his desire will further decrease. Read more »
I'm seeing someone who has a bad combination of fast-growing hair and sensitive skin. He has stubble an hour after shaving, but he can't shave every day. After he spends the night, my face peels for days. When he goes down on me, the sensation is distracting and painful, which pretty much ruins it for me. Read more »
Love your column. That said, at the risk of sounding like a p.c. crap-spewing psycho, I am going to take an issue with your sentence, "Kind of the way that the single mothers at the playground cannot stop themselves from crawling all over married men who show up there with a baby" ["Quid Pro Shmo," 1/10/07]. I see your point, and obviously there are such women, and they are perhaps plentiful enough to make their own category. Read more »
Every few months some harried freelancer charged with coming up with a novel spin on something sexual or other contacts me for a pithy quote. And since I am all about the pith, I will oblige if at all possible. Most recently, the writer was a staffer at Details, which I used to read when it was sort of sceney and kinda gay back in the '80s but which sunk beneath my radar when it morphed into some sort of younger, more metro GQ. What did I think, the writer wanted to know, about the demise of the hand job? Read more »
Two years ago I met a guy who was a friend of a friend. I got to know him and realized that he was the most fascinating, intelligent person I'd ever met. Despite not being initially attracted to him, I soon got over this and fell in love with him.
We skirted discussing a romantic relationship because he had deep emotional problems precipitated by a number of traumatic things that happened to him in his childhood. He could often be unfriendly to the point of cruelty. Read more »
