Return of a bookslut

Michael Schaub is back at the Bookslut blog, as acerbic as ever. Yay, Michael!
This piece on Thomas Maier's Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Couple Who Taught America How to Love might actually be the first time the New York Times has printed the phrase "a clear Plexiglas dildo nicknamed Ulysses" since J. Edgar Hoover's obituary.


In New Zealand, a school is bribing kids to read with Coke. They're doing the same thing in Miami, only the "c" isn't capitalized.
... Is "How to Love" really quite the right verb for what Masters and Johnson taught America how to do, or do better?
