Ask Polly: I Want to Get Laid But I’m Afraid of Oppressing Women
Heather Havrilesky

I kept thinking that endless question was a gag, a spoof of someone who majored in Women’s Studies to secretly get laid and then had The Big Plan backfire. Can anybody really overthink anything that much and still muster the energy to stay upright? In those one or two times a year the guy did manage to get laid, somehow, I would love to know what it took. A club to the head? A woman who writes 10 single spaced pages to assure him he’s not oppressing her if he strokes her fingers under the blanket…?
