|Sex With The Ex||-63|

Ever wanted to hear somebody defend “love” on the grounds that it cures cancer? Hope you like fallacies, because Dick cites a study that does just that without controlling for variables such as increased access to insurance benefits and medical care for couples who are married.
Love increases oxytocin levels in your body, which makes you more trusting. In other words, a mark. It’s the same feeling animals get when licked, or thieves get when they plan a heist. Enjoy getting taken advantage of, suckers. As for me? I’m an unloved genius. And finally, Dick trades in all his remaining man points to defend Valentine’s Day.
Big thanks to Casper for sponsoring this episode. Here’s the picture of the box my King mattress came in. I’m genuinely impressed with the product, delivery and service:
