Sex and dinner Secret Tel Aviv Style

This post by Mara Andreou really got the creative juices flowing. Some of my favorites include: “Can you give it to me, Daddy”, “I’m going to put some hummus on it”, “will your sister join us tonight?”, “I hope it tastes better than it looks”, “really, all over my new dress”, “grandma is choking!”, and of course “sorry I came early”. Check the post for more great answers! Other cool posts this week include for dog lovers Rafael Kuperman’s picture ‘Fuck the System’ and Yardena Waskar Goldberg’s experiment “Type your name on the GIF search and post what comes up”.
