The irony would be dee-licious if only the Urban Dictionary weren't talking about (yech!) douching:

“Douche: a word to describe an individual who has shown themself to be very brainless in one way or another, thus comparing them to the cleansing product for vaginas.”

So basically, the woman who consider “douching” a proper form of cleansing, birth control or some other cure-all, are, in fact, being a douche.

We plant trees for our grandchildren, the old saying goes. The idea here is a selfless act that prudently provides for a future we may never live to see.

From the time I first started growing hair down there (actual 7th grade picture at left) I had a lot of questions about sexuality.  Problem was, there was no one who seemed safe to ask like "What's happening to me?"  As I got older, the questions got harder ("Where's the on/off switch on this thing?") and would-be sexual savants started popping up out of the ground.  They had lots of answers reeking of certitude and that resulted in some years of confusion.  Nowadays, as a sexual futurist,  the questions are really harder.
