Sexless in the City

Sometimes reading romance novels doesn’t quite prepare you for a love life...

For this 30-year-old urbanite, love is always a misadventure: The Harvard Lickwit, Hippie the Groper, the 5% Man, and the Ad Weasel. These and many other men wander in and out of her life — but never her bed.

Reader poll 2

More Sexless coming soon (after my morning coffee — what else?), but meanwhile I’m curious to hear from you all about favorite break-up albums — or your use of music generally in relational recovery. I’ve always held (well, at least since the year the movie came out) that Love’s “Always See Your Face” from the High Fidelity soundtrack is one of the most amazing break-up songs ever. But listening to Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” makes me think he’s got a few in his stash too. Clearly there are different phases of recovery, and different songs are albums for those phases. So what’re yours?

Consider this your chance to sound off.

Don’t forget to vote!
And speaking of which, since the close of the month draweth night (four days left!), don’t forget to submit your entry for this month’s contest. I’ve only had two entrants so far, neither of whom have taken me up on my offer to improve their answers, so the field is wide open. A gmail address could be yours! Or a homemade cinnamon roll! Also other prizes, just for the effort.

Finally, if you have any suggestions for October’s BOTtoM, let me know. I know you’ve enjoyed hearing about the insights of Steven Rhoads, but alas, this chapter too must end. In addition to assessing Old School through Rhoads’ lens, I hope to do a final wrap-up of his overall argument. We’ll see.

Back soon! Now start thinking about your music ...

Another blog-link! How exciting. I love that this reader adds the “Adult Content” label to the link. Must the chocolate vaginas or the stripping episode ... although I have in large part reformed, no? At any rate, if you too have added a permalink to my blog, but aren’t noted among my blogpals at right, set me straight and I’ll fix the mistake in a jiffy.
