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.

Sexless to join ‘world’s first brothel blog’?

You would think I’d have to be making something like this up. You might even think I’ve aped Blogfather in pulling an April Fool’s Joke. But no. Not Anna.

I’m half convinced the “weird-sex mojo” I wrote about yesterday afternoon in a draft of the Sexless book project is responsible for this email received last night. Which I would copy unrevised except that I must, um, protect the innocent and all that. In any case, gentle readers, yours truly has now been invited to link-swap with Real Australian Brothel. Which is a real Australian brothel.
