*Before Sunset in LA

On recommendation from a film buff I stream Before (not Beyond) Sunset. It’s horrible. A little.   Anyway, predicting the sex scene to come (so maybe it gets better) I hit pause and go for a whiz. I decide to hit the 1/2 spliff that I had left on the glass table outside my door. In…

Are Men Emotionally Handicapped?

  Do bears shit in the woods? Handicapped: having a condition that restricts one’s ability to function physically, mentally or emotionally. Obviously, men are emotionally handicapped. Or… if you prefer, challenged. Everything I needed to know about this issue, I learned in kindergarten. The girls played with each other, interacting mostly in pairs. They would get…

The Rollercoaster of Relationships: and How to Get Off

During the final months of my last relationship, I noticed that when I was unbelievably happy, she was almost never happy; and when she was in splendorous moods of joy, I was totally down and out.

The New Sexy: Upgraded (2017)

  Here’s The New Sexy: Upgraded. (If you’re coming from my old site please scroll down to where it says, new.) Until recently, when a woman over 40 checked out my dating profile, the first thought that automatically popped up in my head was too old–and then I quickly moved on to the next profile. I would literally think, Why is she…

My Next “Relationship”

  Someone recently asked me, “Alex, you just got OUT of a relationship–why are you already thinking about your next one?” Because at THIS moment, I am VERY CLEAR on what I DO NOT WANT in a relationship. When we leave a relationship, there are things that weren’t working–obviously. Emotionally and time-wise, we are closest to that “knowing”…
