It's fitting that von Steinbach shot our Musings pictorial: We may have helped kick-start his career. “My first exposure to women and photography was when I was younger, via my late granddad’s 1980s and 1990s PLAYBOYS,” he says. And since he’d worked with model Sera Mann before, the creative chemistry was on point.

Based on the Advisor’s response (March/ April), I would like to offer my own definition of fuckboy: someone whose immature behavior conveys that he values sex and not much else about his relations with women. Steven Rovnyak Indianapolis, Indiana

Scott Campbell, fine artist and bicoastal tattoo purveyor, has always had a thing for skulls. He would carve them into school desks as a kid growing up outside New Orleans, where, he says, “artsy fartsy was not honored, and it was all about who could catch the biggest bass.”

You’ve got to love a country that prohibits the sale of breast-themed pillows on one hand and sanctions liquor-drenched live sex shows on the other. Here in America, our wild pioneer spirit continues to clash with our Puritan paranoia; we’ve lurched into a 21st century that offers unlimited hardcore pornography at our fingertips but by and large grants only one sex the right to go shirtless in public, and with movements such as #FreeTheNipple making their way into the national discussion, it’s a good time to get the lay of the land.

Honestly, it doesn’t matter what you think “in your opinion.” It’s her opinion that counts. If you feel you need to hide your desire for something you do when she’s not around, that’s a strong sign she won’t be cool with it. What’s considered “cheating” should always be defined by the couple, not by the individuals, so you need to discuss this with your partner.

Liz Suman
On a steamy New York City summer night in 2015, Natalie White stripped down in the middle of abustling Bowery art gallery and stepped inside a Plexiglas box, its floor carpeted with an American flag. This performance piece marked the beginning of “Natalie White for Equal Rights,” the feminist artist’s ongoing campaign aimed at renewing enthusiasm for the 94-year-old unratified Equal Rights Amendment.

I cried a lot at my wedding. Turns out it was good practice. When I was a kid I went to fat camp—or, as my parents referred to it, “We get to do it in the kitchen for three weeks fest.” Believing that male workers are more focused after they’ve pleasured themselves, a company in Norway has proposed setting aside employee “masturbation rooms”— what workers in the U.S. call “rooms.”

SEVEN MCDONALD
My first MDMA-assisted psychotherapy session took place in my apartment on a sunny winter morning.

My months-long search to find a male-female therapy team who would agree to do the illegal treatment with me had led me underground.
