I find it fascinating who moderates dating sites and how they decide what's offensive. This is a lovely story about someone who does that and explains her dilemma's both moderating and dating. Here's a personal example that made me laugh out loud

“Do you know about astronomy?” I didn’t reply. The next morning he wrote, “I’m surprised that an ugly sl*ut like you acts the way you do. Seriously bi*tch, look in the mirror. Dumb cu*nt.”

I was surprised anyone could have such a poor understanding of asterisks."

I never even knew places like this existed to go to with your husband. And somehow I don't know if taking a bath in a champagne glass shaped tub would do anything for me except make me laugh really hard. I did enjoy reading about it though

"Adulthood, it turns out, involves cleaning and cooking and money stress, dentist appointments and deadlines. Recently there has been a double dose of erotic kryptonite: middle school applications and the election. Neal and I feel so worn down that we decide the only cure is to take a bath together seven feet in the air."

Then one day, in a perfect paradox, I surrendered to my addiction and never had to use again. Addiction, I discovered, wasn’t a by-product of drug abuse. It was a false filling-up of spiritual emptiness, a set of protective repetitions designed to eliminate difficult feelings and choices.

But he was just warming up. “A lot has been said about my past exploits, but trust me, I never screwed any hooker as hard as Marty screwed Warner Bros.,” he went on. “Marty Singer might be the only person who’s fucked more people in Hollywood than I have.”
