A young man discovers the joy of prostate play. How cool: A new way to orgasm! But if playing with a plastic dildo is fun, what about the real thing? He’s not gay, which is a problem. He sees an ad in an alternative newspaper: “Open membership/Exclusive men's club/For the adventurous.” A few phone calls later, he’s on the way to an upscale hotel for his initiation into a very special club for men who are straight, professional, “and enjoy the Greek side of things.” His initiation will be an evening of sex and submission to six experienced men.

They were a motley crew, these sawmill workers, loggers, farmers and factory workers who frequented a nondescript saloon in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania in the 1950s. Their pursuit of love, riches and enough beer to get them over the edge led to some hilarious incidents witnessed and enjoyed by Johnny Sovich, the benevolent proprietor of The Club. There was Sammy Griney, a kewpie doll little man in pursuit of romance. There was Peg Cavanaugh, who walked tall among men and who had a couple of assets that kept them drooling. There was By God Harry Hollis, who could drink a quart of beer in less than a minute and keep doing it for three days straight. There was Rhymin’ Pete Williams, a poet laureate who never wrote anything that made any sense to anyone. There were Shake Keller and Ed Hooker, two ugly brutes with the dubious distinction of having never won a fight, ready to put their perfect records on the line. All were members of good standing in The Club.
From the comedian behind the popular parenting blog The Ugly Volvo comes a refreshing spin on the baby milestone book. Instead of a place to lovingly capture the first time baby sleeps through the night, this book shows what it's like the first time baby rolls off the bed/sofa/changing table, leaving mom or dad in a state of pure terror (it happens). These 100 rarely documented but all-too-realistic milestones—such as "First Time Baby Says a Word You Didn't Want Her to Say"—provide comfort, solidarity, and comic relief for new parents. Laugh-out-loud relatable text and distinctive illustrations of these "bad" parenting moments make this a must-have book for anyone entering the mysterious club of parenthood.

Todo cambia cuando un divorcio irrumpe en nuestras vidas: las emociones, las relaciones de familia y sociales, la estabilidad económica, la seguridad personal e incluso las cuestiones de tipo laboral son puestas a prueba. ¿Qué hacer ante esto? ¿Cómo comportarse en esta nueva etapa de la vida? Gracias a la experiencia personal y a una aguda capacidad de análisis, Rosaura Rodríguez presenta un valioso testimonio para ayudar, a quienes se encuentran ante esta situación, a comprender las reglas del juego. Desde las dudas existenciales, la reacción de amigos y familiares, la carga emocional que conlleva una separación y la carga de tensión que recae sobre los hijos, hasta la recuperación, la entrada nuevamente al mercado del amor y la expectativa de una nueva vida, hayan en este relato una explicación valerosa y, sobre todo, con humor. A fin de cuentas, la lección más importante de Bienvenida al club del divorcio es la certeza de que el dolor se va y la ilusión permanece intacta.
This thesis examines whether intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) can socialize member states by testing the effect of shared IGO memberships on dyadic arms transfers. IGO socialization is one of many proposed causal mechanisms by which IGO memberships might reduce interstate conflict. This thesis argues that the institutional socialization hypothesis (ISH), which asserts that shared IGO memberships will lead to interest convergence between member states, uses an invalid conceptualization and measurement of socialization. Instead, socialization is re-conceptualized as increased trust between member states, and re-operationalized using dyadic arms transfers as a proxy for trust. The study uses linear regression with cross-sectional panel data from the years 1960 to 1965 to test if the number of shared IGO memberships a dyad has five years prior leads to an increase in the number of arms transfers in a given dyad-year. The results are suggestive of a positive relationship between the number of shared IGO memberships and dyadic arms transfers, but are not conclusive at a 0.05 level of significance.
