Exuberance and the Pill

A guy friend just emailed a bunch of us the text of a NY Times article entitled The Claim: The Pill Can Make You Put On Weight, found in the Health section of today's paper. The article described the results of a study on weight gain and the pill.

The final paragraph of text that my friend sent said this:

THE BOTTOM LINE The link between the pill and weight gain is exaggerated at best. Oral contraceptives and exuberant fellatio are clearly superior alternatives to condom use or abstinence for avoiding unwanted pregnancy.

I had to read it a couple times to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. And then immediately had to pull up the Times and find the article.

Which of course said nothing about fellatio, exuberant or otherwise.

I have to say, I was pretty impressed with him for sneaking that in.


  1. I'm quite a fan of your friend. Nice one.

  2. Men...They'll try anything!

    I just caught up on your NY posts! What a FAB weekend it turned out to be, complete with ritzy dates and all!! Good for you, girl!


Tell me about it.
