“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.” ~ Meryl Streep

“MEN and WOMEN want INTIMACY, they want CLOSENESS, they want UNDERSTANDING, they want FUN, and they want someone who really CAREs about them beyond just going to bed with them.” ~ Shirley Zussman
She says our hectic work lives are killing our sex lives
She was born before the invention of the stop sign, but sex therapist Shirley Zussman has some thoughts on ‘hooking up.’ “I don’t think it’s as frantic as casual sex was in the sixties,” she says, noting that modern ‘hooking up’ isn’t as exciting without the context of a sexual revolution. Besides, she adds: “In the long run, sexual pleasure is just one part of what men and women want from each other.”
At 100, Dr. Zussman is still a practicing sex therapist in New York City. In the 50-plus years since she began counseling people about all things related to sex, Dr. Zussman has witnessed everything from the legalization of the contraceptive birth control pill in 1960 (she started in sex therapy shortly afterwards) to the AIDs epidemic in the 1980s to the rise of internet porn in the new millennium.
She’s one of the oldest sex therapists in the world, but that might be the least extraordinary thing about her life and career. Born at the beginning of World War I, she graduated from Smith college in 1934, in the same class as Julia Child. Zussman was mentored through her graduate dissertation by Margaret Mead, and in the 1960s learned about sex therapy from Masters and Johnson, the inspiration for the Showtime series Masters of Sex. Her husband, a gynecologist, performed one of the first legal abortions in New York.
Here’s what she has to say about casual sex, cell phones, and how our hectic work lives are changing our attitudes toward sex.

At some point, your kids are going to outgrow the need for your help with their homework. With the kitchen sink full of dishes, bills to pay and to-do lists to conquer, chances are that’s just fine with you — especially if your kids are taking classes that weren’t even offered when you were in school.
But that doesn’t mean you don’t play a critical role in your children’s education in other ways. Here are five beyond-the-books life skills to teach your kids that they may not learn in school.
1. Money matters
It’s never too soon to give a financial lesson. If you haven’t already, open a bank account for your children. Build on the math skills they learn in school and talk to them about how a savings account can grow and what it means if they overdraw the account.
Use real-life examples to show where financial pitfalls occur. For example, those “No payments for a year” ads might make you skeptical, but to kids, it may it look like a good deal. Teach them how to read the fine-print details and to be on the hunt for those sneaky asterisks.
With college comes a deluge of credit card offers and if your child doesn’t understand the consequences of accumulating a large balance on a high interest-rate card, they could be paying down that debt well beyond their 20s.
2. Responsibility rules
With students having to report to class on time and meet deadlines with homework and other school assignments, the stage is already set for this lesson.
If they miss an assignment or get up late, they’re not going to get fired from school — and you know that doesn’t relate well to the real world. So when they make a misstep, give them the real scoop about what it means to be late for work or to miss a deadline.
Sitting in detention is one thing — but missing out on bonuses and the corner office might hit home a little harder. Bad habits in the classroom can predict bad habits in the workplace.
3. Good manners count
Little things like forgetting to hold a door open or even being too informal in a business e-mail can hinder landing a dream job.
If you’ve ever watched your kids goofing off at the mall, you probably know that good manners — and good grammar for that matter — often go by the wayside.
You don’t have to rain on their parade, but you can illustrate the differences between how they behave now with how they’ll need to behave in the future.
Take them to work with you when they have a day off from school, or attend a local school board or city council meeting so they can observe how adults communicate in a business setting.
4. Household chores aren’t optional
While you probably already assign a few, you might want to offer up a real lesson in housework. By college, your child should know how to wash clothes, cook up a quick meal — besides ramen noodles — and keep things in (relatively) good order.
You might even want to show them how to sew on a button and iron a shirt. Then let them take over for a weekend, while you sit back and enjoy the results.
5. Work on career skills
Homework leaves little time for a paying job. But kids can learn how the skills they’re learning can apply to a career.
Have your child visit job sites on the Web and read job descriptions for careers that interest them.
Encourage your kids to think about their career goals and craft a résumé that includes teams they’ve played on, clubs they’ve belonged to or volunteer jobs they’ve held. This résumé can help immensely when your child is looking for that first summer job.
Your child may not think playing soccer relates to a dream of becoming a lawyer, but competition and teamwork are skills that translate from the field to the courtroom.
