Misquote of the Week

Are clean-cut looking guys really, you know, clean? Tough to tell, according to this post-one-night-stand passage in Lauren Lipton’s chick-lit novel “Mating Rituals of the North American WASP”:

“Do you think I’ve caught hepatitis? Or worse?” She was makng herself breathless.

“That guy was so conservative, he looked like a 1962 Brooks Brothers ad.” Bex clenched her teeth and finished in a mock upper-class drawl, “no one like that could possibly be diseased.”

“That’s not true and you know it.”

    Not clean. I have it on very good authority from several sources that clean-cut WASP guys sometimes engage in ‘slumming’ with the lower-class, minority, or foreign help, moving on to experiment in college with various women from exotic climes, before they settle down with a conventional girl.

    For instance, I have a friend, a good-looking Hill grad and minor actor in Hollywood in the late 1990s, who as a teenager in Pennsylvania once seduced a succession of female European au pairs that his parents had imported to help around the household. He told me some of the girls were so dirty, that he lived in terror of having contracted an STD, including HIV. He was a frequent visitor to the local clinic. Eventually he married a homely-looking blonde from an old Delaware family, but not before getting the all-clear from the clinic.

    Am I that predictable and depraved?
