Forget about the tie girls, here's a birthday present you don't see everyday. The women of my acquaintence who have commented about this particularly liked "I wanted to give him something noone else would."
I will add one comment. The NYT calls one couple "steak eating Republicans." Wow! They eat steak!? They must be right-wing! I can't imagine anyone is too conservative who publishes the intimate details of their marital relations with Simon & Schuster.
Update: Prof. Althouse says this is the most emailed piece in the entire NY Times. The comments are sometimes pretty funny. Especially, "Maybe they just like contract."
