PEN America Party

Last night we were at the PEN America annual bash for new members and new books, which is really just a big cocktail party mercifully without speeches.  We talked to a number of people, one of them being a guy about our age, Jeffrey Escoffier.  I of course had to ask him if he wrote cookbooks.  No.  He writes nonfiction about sexuality, so he was kind of interested in Found Objects.

I asked him what, in all his years of studying sex, he had learned to be unequivocally true.  He came right back with what he said was the only immutable rule about sex he’s ever found.

Escoffier’s Law: One lover is never enough, two is always too many.
