Happy Memorial Weekend!

We’re taking the long weekend off, and we hope you are, too!  We’ll be back with our regularly scheduled regimen of sex, love, and everything in between on Tuesday, May 27th.

We hope your barbecue plans don’t get rained off, and if they do, we hope your battery-operated sex toys are fully charged. Either way, remember to raise an icy cold beverage to all the people who give their lives for this country — the straight ones, the gay ones, and all the other ones, too. Without them, you wouldn’t have the freedom to stay home and shot-gun Budweiser by the pool, or buy a battery-operated sex toy whenever you damn well felt like it.

By the way, our friend Nathaniel Frank was instrumental in getting “don’t ask, don’t tell” removed.  He is the author of the book Unfriendly Fire: How the Gay Ban Undermines the Military and Weakens America, and was an expert witness in two Constitutional challenges to “don’t ask, don’t tell,” whose success helped end the policy. You can read more about his book here, and also read an open letter he wrote to the parents of his (gay) best friend.

See you back here on Tuesday!
