In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman
and her daughter at the same time.
(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)
They call it the "Quarter-life Crisis." It is when you stop going along
with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about
yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure
and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because
you barely know where you are now.
You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends
that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people
you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the
most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing
that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they

decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love
someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing
this because you know that you aren't a bad person.
One nightstands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and
acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You go through the same
emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the
same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision.
You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself...
and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be

I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using.
After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the
good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help
me. Without thinking, I looked at him and said,
"I think I like playing with men's balls."
