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

This week’s post is below, but I’m keeping the poll on top as a reminder to please respond. The more of you who reply, the more helpful it is both to the blog and planning promotion for the book. Reply via email. Further incentive: all respondents through the end of June entered into a raffle for homemade cookies (domestic readers) or a CD (international readers).
  1. Sex? (as in, which are you)
  2. Age: (at least an estimate, if you’re shy)
  3. Relational status: dating? single? engaged? married? celibate?
  4. Educational status: in school? have degrees? how many?
  5. How would you describe your religious or spiritual life: Buddhist/Catholic/atheist/addicted to chocolate? Etc.
  6. Where do you live?
  7. How long have you been a reader?
  8. How often do you check in — daily/weekly/monthly/when insomnia strikes?
  9. How did you find this blog — Rolling Stone, Godspy, Village Voice, a friend, or random googling?
  10. What would you like to see more of, content-wise?
  11. What would you like to see less of?
  12. Is there a song or topic you’ve always hoped Anna would address?
Finally, several items remain from last week’s barter bin, so don’t forget to check it out if you need perfume, CDs or new shades.
