Let's get into it, eh? ~Gentlemen, getting a girl to date you isn't hard. Here's how it works. You see that hot girl over there? Yeah, her. Go say hey. Stop being nervous.

Imagine if national politics were a Bears game. The Democratic Senate is the elusive running back, the Republican House of Representatives is the loud and brash wide receiver and President Obama is the quarterback who makes it all come together.

My boyfriend and I are having sex. It's great sex. But lately he has wanted me to beg before he enters me. I don't know what to say. I try and try to come up with something he'd like. I beg by saying "master" but he doesn't want me to use master. He said it's a turn off. What should I say? —Clueless What do you want, a script? Erotic dialogue costs extra, my friend. The advice part, however, is free. And as you no doubt know, beggars can't be choosers. Although, maybe you don't know that since you're asking me how to beg. When it comes to dirty talk,...
