Risky Business

This post marks the blogging debut of my friend, college classmate and fellow Baby Boomer, the Urban Blabbermouth. A little bit Jamaica, a little bit Haiti, and a lot of New York. I am delighted to share his quirky philosophy. 

Comments are welcome. 

In the movie "Risky Business", the main character played by Tom Cruise asks his male friends about their last date.  Paraphrasing here, "How much did you spend on gas, dinner, movie, drinks and did the evening end in intimacy?  Well come by my house and I will hook you up for a little bit more money than you spent on the date." See, Tom Cruise is running a prostitution operation in his parents' house.

The movie brings up a question but does not answer: Why is it acceptable to take a woman out for dinner, movie, drinks, indirectly spend money on her, then go have intimacies but it is not acceptable to directly give her the money then go have intimacies?  Now this movie came out in 1983 and this question has been rattl…

Exciting News!

I am very pleased to announce that a long-time (36 years) friend will be sharing his wit and wisdom on this site in the days to come. Please watch this space for his debut.
