Contrary to what the recent Newsweek piece says, I don’t really consider myself an “authority on sex” nor am I a “self-appointed poster girl for what could be called a group of brainy girls gone wild”. My friends will attest that I’ve never proclaimed my expertise on the topic. In fact, I’m more of a case study on what NOT to do in relationships and in the bedroom. Longtime readers know that this website features plenty more debacles and mistakes and embarrassing episodes than it does advice or optimistic bullshit. It’s about what I do with my life not what anyone else should do with theirs. I don’t mind living and learning, but frankly, I would never advise anyone to follow in my example.
If you asked, I wouldn’t even know how to describe what being a sexpert would entail. Writing a lot about sex? Having a lot of sex? Maybe I’m only a sexpert in the sense that I have something to say about the subject period, since there’s a fairly limited population of folks who are willing to go on the record about going down.
I had a fairly lengthy interview with the writer of the Newsweek piece. She asked a lot of questions and I gave her a lot of opinionated responses, none of which made the article. Maybe that’s why I came off as an “authority on sex”. After all, I have strong feelings about the state of love and sex at Harvard, … but then again so do a lot of my friends. That doesn’t make them sexperts and it doesn’t make me one either.
