I know one of Scalia's kids. I genuinely have no idea what his religious or political beliefs are, because as soon as they surface in conversation, he flees at top speed.

Did not have an orgasm until I was twenty-one, here. Also didn't masturbate much (clearly). Not because I thought it was wrong or dirty, but just because . . . well, I'd tried fooling around down there a little, and it was just kind of nice, but ultimately boring. My first orgasm (which I did give myself, by surprise)… » 4/16/14 1:07pm 4/16/14 1:07pm
