“D Is for Desire,” HuffPost’s love and sex podcast. “I’ve kind of come to terms with all that I am and all that I’ve done. There’s a great Phyllis Diller quote when she comes out and says, ‘There’s no excuse for looking like this. There are reasons.’ There’s no excuse for having had sex with that many people, but there are reasons.”

Hillary Clinton says if Trump loses, he won't go 'silently into the night' Trump And His Campaign Amplify 'Birther' Conspiracy Against Kamala Harris Donald Trump just straight-up admitted he is working to meddle in the election

For this episode of “D Is for Desire,” Mark and I explored those reasons, as well as his journey from sexual neophyte coming of age in the South during the 1960s to connoisseur of all that New Orleans’ bathhouses had to offer in the ’70s to, finally, his current life as a happy husband in a monogamous relationship. We also chatted about how contracting HIV in the ’80s and watching his community be ravaged by the disease affected his sex life ― but maybe not in the way you might expect:

no A bit absurd,however is the person mentallity healthy ? Sleeping around don't make one a responsible adult,nor part of personal hygiene, or protect against STI's. No example to the younger generation to take and learn responsibility. Why did he keep count, and what kind of childish need is satisfied by telling everybody?

Self report is never accurate lol I know you’re tired boo. Slept with...? Ew.

Biden Campaign Whittles VP Shortlist Down To Either Woman Or Man With Long HairWASHINGTON—Following months of scrupulous vetting and careful political calculation, Joe Biden’s vice-presidential selection committee announced Thursday it had whittled down its shortlist to include only women, and also men who have long hair. “I believe a presidential administration should look like the country it represents, so I’ve decided my running mate will be a woman—quite possibly a woman of color—or else a man with long, flowing locks that fall at least to his shoulders,” said Biden, noting that a candidate from either category could make history, whether as the first female vice president, or as the first male vice president with long hair in modern times—perhaps since John Tyler, who was elected to the post in 1940 with a shaggy, unkempt mane. “We’ve got our list down to five highly qualified women and ruggedly styled men, any one of whom would make a fantastic addition to Team Joe. These are candidates whose unique identities have informed their experiences, whether as accomplished women who have carved out careers in fields traditionally dominated by men, or as men with curly waves cascading down their necks who know what it’s like to make their way in a world run by short-haired men. Rest assured, my White House will reflect this nation’s great diversity of awesome looks.” At press time, Biden had clarified any long-haired man selected wouldn’t be a hippie. i believe we should choose the vp based on the quality of their onlyfans 😂😄🤣 PFTCommenter’s time to shine, yes

John Lewis. “I’ve come here today because I, like so many Americans, owe a great debt to John Lewis and his forceful vision of freedom.” I miss listening to US Presidents with empathy, humility and intelligence.

A Florida Man Reportedly Used Covid-19 Small Business Loans to Buy $318,497 Lamborghini, Luxury GoodsIt is increasingly rare for the U.S. to come together over a common enemy (like, a global pandemic couldn’t even do that), but allow me to offer up David Tyler Hines. The 29-year-old Florida man applied for $13.5 million in taxpayer funds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)—which sought to help small businesses keep employees on their payroll during coronavirus closures—and was approved for nearly $4 million in three forgivable, low-interest PPP loans despite the fact that he either did not actually have any employees to retain or paid them pennies compared to what he filed for, BuzzFeed reports. Not only that, but he has been charged with bank fraud after allegedly using the money on luxury goods for himself. Gotta love a huckster who uses covid-19 as an opportunity to go shopping!\n
