Dear Sarah,

I'm a little bit confused because I thought the trick with the strike would allow me to skip Friday's morning mail, but I failed there as well. I don't know how many different names for man's pride ( that was my name ) were sent to me, but a list can be found below.

To answer your question on why men ( and in my oppinion as well very often WOMEN ) talk about a penis as a third person has simply something to do with our education. As a child you're brought up with "not using certain words", and anything sexually related is among the list. Again it's amazing how many women simply are not able to say the word "penis" ( am I being too sexist here?? ). In my case ( and everybody's holding his/her breath ) I don't have a particular "third person" name for my penis, but I can imagine as a man it can be handy to use one ( name AND penis ): in case of failure during sex, you can always blame it on "the other guy" Dick, Roger or whatever!!!

Have a nice day
Alex

A college psychology class was studing human reaction to sexual stimulus and of special interest was the frequency of amorous relations.

''How many students here,'' said the professor, ''engage more than once a week?''
Five people raised their hands.


''And how many engage once a week?''
Ten hands went up.


''How many twice a month?''
Eight hands went up.


''Once a month?''
Four hands were raised.


''And how may once a year?''
A little guy in the back waved his hand frantically and giggled hysterically.

''If you engage only once a year,'' said the professor, ''I don't see what you're so overjoyed about.''
Flush with excitement, the little guy said, ''Yeah, but tonight's the night!''
