The Way We Play

When I was in college, John Irving was one of my writing professors and used to tell us there were only two things worth writing about — sex and death. Well since I've been writing about death so much, I'm really going to try to write more about sex. I read a really interesting article about how much more often creative people mastrubate than your average Joe, I'm going to go dig it up.

Meanwhile, let me link you to one of my favorite Americans, John Perry Barlow and his essay on being A Ladies Man and Shameless on

BTW, if the link doesn't work (sometimes happens), the "Star Firsts" are pretty funny with celebrities describing how they lost their virginity. Everyone from Henry Miller to Eve Arden to Cher and back around to Ingmar Bergman.
