the copulaiton

I recently finished reading “the happy hooker” by Xaviera Hollander. While it would be a stretch to say that it was a good book, it was definitely interesting and got me thinking about sexuality.

The line between lobbying and outright corruption is blurry at best, as witnessed by high profile cases around the world that include corporations getting […]
