by Arnie Singer for GalTime.com I recently met with a single lady who told me a variation of the story I’ve heard, and continue to hear, hundreds of times. She dated this guy for six weeks.

1. Men and women both believe in a fantasy model of sexuality. According to Zibergeld [The New Male Sexuality], both parties have tended to agree that ‘sex’ equals intercourse and that there must be an erection followed by two orgasms – preferably simultaneously. Unfortunately, many couples who try to strictly adhere to this model and fall short, end up feeling less than adequate. Sex should not be based on performance but on pleasure, fun and intimacy.

"Bizarre, salacious and inexplicably careless" - these are just a few of the judgment-laden phrases that presently swirl around Suzy Favor Hamilton, a woman some have called the greatest athlete in University of Wisconsin history.
