An Irreverent Look at the Friendzone

By the Irrelevant Irreverent

When a person finds themselves in the friend zone, quite often the response is to snarl in contempt, gnash teeth in their general direction, and turn away, calling them worthless or somehow sneaky. I think we can approach it from another direction, and give these lads a teachable moment, so to speak.

Not So Shocking News: Younger Generation Believe Porn is Safer than Sex

Dear reader, have you ever damaged a particularly valuable part of your anatomy while viewing a video of unclothed humans rubbed against each other sensuously? Because unless you believe Satan is eating your soul if you watch porn, that’s the only real way you can get hurt by using it.…
