The U.S. government’s social media is in some ways insidious, but at least it’s usually well labeled (Big Brother Wants to Be Your Friend, May). If you follow @CIA, complete with its Twitter-verified seal of approval, you know you’re interacting with an intelligence agency.

“As a first-generation Japanese American, I’ve always wanted to play a samurai warrior like my Suicide Squad character, Katana. Samurai are almost always male, so growing up in America I had a hard time figuring out role models. Katana and I may not have the same personality, but coming from the same cultural upbringing, we share core values.

You don’t need to buy a grill. Those rows of gleaming stainless steel outside the big-box store represent the kindergarten version of cooking with fire: all training wheels and safety valves and the avoidance of soot. Let other men debate clayinsulated kamado versus metal kettle versus bincho charcoal versus mesquite chips.

A decade ago, the major selling points of a compact car were fuel economy and suitability for city driving. The thought being, if it’s convenient to park and costs less at the pump, what’s left to consider? These days, there’s a lot more, with a larger variety of compact cars—from economy to sporty to luxury—available than ever before.

Of the 24 cannabis-supportive states in the country, Colorado is the top destination, and Denver is ahead of the game in offering an elevated experience to cannatourists. The Mile High City’s Nativ Hotel is the best pro-pot place to stay, thanks to its draft-beer garden, champagne café and Stereo Lounge, a basement club where Snoop Dogg has made an appearance, naturally.

When I’ve had a stressful week, I like to get a massage. Recently I’ve been fantasizing about getting a “happy ending.” I realize it’s inappropriate to ask a licensed massage therapist at a day spa for a handy, but after combing the classifieds I found several venues that offer “erotic massages.”

Every four years, a new crop of conservative presidential candidates barges into American bedrooms, looking to police what you do and with whom you do it. These politicians, eager to cater to religious voters, campaign on promises to eliminate access to birth control, ban abortion, pass discriminatory laws against gays, and regulate or outright ban any lifestyle or preference that doesn’t fit into their Christian crusade to eliminate all sexual activity that doesn’t lead to procreation.

The most important—and nebulous—freedom that’s up for grabs in 2016 and beyond is this: the freedom not to be the exemplar of your race, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliation, hair color, height, gluten sensitivity, etc. In other words, the freedom to fuck up and not have it cost the rest of your peer group.

DR. SANJAY GUPTA
Right around the time I was finishing my neurosurgery residency in 2000, the consumption of prescription pain pills, known as opioid analgesics, was growing at a staggering rate. Over the next decade, sales of these medications would quadruple and the United States would earn the dubious honor of becoming the most pain-medicated country in the world.

Over the past 50 years, Western culture has seen unprecedented progress in our sense of ourselves as sexual beings.
