Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

What a sexy sex week this has been! Well, I suppose that depends on your definition of “week.” And “sex.” We read The Least Sexy Sex Poem and learned to differentiate between the common slang term for an orgasm and the name of a common spice, which, sure. On the other end of the emotional arousal spectrum, we started our first Hairpin Q&A with our fears: fun!! If you haven’t added yours yet, please do, and also take the time to read through the other answers. It’s like a database of new terrors.

Links and wonderful end of week video after the jump!
