Some friendly advice for the pope: Don’t waste your time trying to impose a male worldview on 57,000 nuns. Any married man will tell you that he can’t even train his wife to leave up the toilet seat.

I’m a 28-year-old guy who was broken up with via text by a girl I had been dating for two months. She is dealing with the loss of a family member and some other personal issues, and she sent me this message while out of state for a week or so. Two months is a short time, I realize, and we never discussed the nature of our arrangement. But we spent a few nights a week together and agreed that we had something special. We had a chemistry that I haven’t experienced in my last few relationships. How much respect do you maintain/lose based on something like this?

This is the greenest time of year. All the trees and shrubs have expanded their leaves. The leaves have not yet fully toughened up so most of them retain the bright, spring green that’s my favorite color.

City Hall, I too dislike it — in its present state of disrepair. It depresses with neglect.

Dear Aidan R. Smith: You asked me for a response to your letter to the editor [“Student Disconnect,” 5/31], so here it is.

Could you tell my boy to calm the heck down? Can’t seem to get him to get the difference between bestiality, necrophilia, and screwin’ a bearskin rug. Emphasizing my usual sexual interests — which involve rope bondage, floggin’, and an e-stim unit — hasn’t worked. Logic isn’t helpin’ out at all. Maybe you can help?

When the DA’s office prosecutes someone for murder without producing a body — or solid proof that one ever existed — it does not have a murder case. It has a plot worthy of a Grisham novel.

I’m a straight male from Southern California and I really want to be a straight male escort. The problem is the industry is shrouded with deceptive “agencies” that take advantage of the situation. Also, it’s not like there’s a Male Escort 101 course that I can take to learn how to avoid these traps. I don’t know if you can help, but I really want to get into this industry, hopefully through a reputable agency.

I’d be celebrating, too, if my company were just handed $3 million more in profit than even we had said was required to build a spa-like enclave for wealthy students in downtown Eugene.

I’m a 17-year-old girl and, in most aspects, I’m confident with myself, my identity, and my body. Earlier this year, I met a girl. She had some serious drama at home and needed to get out of her house, so I let her stay at mine. Things went a LOT further than I was ready for. I had just had my first kiss the month before and I didn’t feel like our relationship was ready for sex, but I went along with it because she never gave me a chance to slow things down or say no.

I work in an office tower in downtown Seattle. From time to time, I go to a bathroom on a mostly deserted floor, go into a stall, and rub out a quick one. Usually, no one comes in.

As the campaigns for the two Lane County commissioner positions come to a close, we’ve been hearing far more about the violations of Oregon’s Open Meetings Law by Commissioners Handy and Sorenson.

This letter is in response to the April 19 letter from John Vawter of Capstone to Diane Chavez, the Olive Plaza administrator.

Deciding to endorse and strongly support Pete Sorenson (commissioner for South Eugene including Whiteaker and the Jefferson/Westside neighborhoods) is an easy task.

Who is Andy Stahl? It’s not clear, from reading the campaign literature and newspapers, what Stahl’s political philosophy is.

I am a 26-year-old straight guy. My straightness and guyness are recent revelations, and it feels amazing to be able to confidently state this. Here is my trouble: I’ve had gender issues for the past five years. My now ex-girlfriend of three years said she couldn’t be with me anymore due to these issues. Our breakup was a result of my apathy in the bedroom, which was tied to my gender issues, and her fears of me transitioning into a woman. I can see now that my insecurities about myself caused me to be a selfish partner in many ways, but mainly in the bedroom.

I know summer is close because the sun shines in our north windows. A sunny morning is a good time to go turtle watching in the Delta Ponds. 

It is important for our community that we re-elect Pete Sorenson as Lane County commissioner. There is no other candidate who has Pete’s experience or his knowledge or will hold to those core values that are central to the long-term health and well being of our community.

I am a straight 29-year-old guy and I’ve been into ball busting — having my balls kicked and stomped — since I was 14. The fucked-up thing is, I only enjoy getting my balls busted by other guys. I’ve been hit in the balls by girls, and it doesn’t do anything for me. I thought I might be bisexual, since I want guys to kick me in the balls, but I don’t get turned on by the idea of sucking cock or getting fucked by a guy. Only ball busting with a guy turns me on.

We each have our own perch from which we watch the political season play out. These days I’m just a rural geezer down here southeast of Cottage Grove.

Is it possible for a hookup to turn into a relationship?

Hoping One Person Enters


A hookup is a relationship, HOPE. It may be a short-term relationship, but it’s a relationship regardless.

What the bleep? Oh, a Skype from the Preacher. 

If you can’t enjoy Waldo Lake without a motor on your boat, you’ve been sitting too close to the exhaust. Besides, why even go there? The nearest mall is more than 60 miles away.

You’d think any big grocery store in a city the size of Eugene, especially a store founded by a Jew like Fred Meyer, would stock plenty of kosher-for-Passover Passover food during Passover. You’d think.
