As I write this, I am very unsure of what to do. And so, naturally, I turn to WSO to solve my problems. Here's the situation. I've gone out with a girl a couple times (we are both in college, she's a senior, I'm a junior), and I happen to really like her. We both have very similar quirky interests and similar life stories, and we are just vibing on all levels. She has her cons, but overall, I think she's a good person and she's pretty smoking hot. However, after our date tonight, I found out she's into some...deviant sexual stuff. I won't get into specifics, but it's on the spectrum of BDSM. I

Hey guys, (in the style of some WSO posts these days) First a bit of a backstory: I had a date last week with an upcoming VS model, and her personality and "personality" were amazing. Since we have quite a number of mutual friends, thought of pursuing it further by keeping in touch, blah blah blah. Next day, bragged about it to a senior associate during a conversation on the fairer sex. He was like 'meh', as though it happens all the time. He sort of just waved it off, and went on to talk about some lame pickup technique he used. The other analysts didn't seem any curious either as I would've

If you've been around WSO long enough to witness all of the "How do I talk to another human being?!?!" threads, perhaps this won't surprise you, but a survey by the Harvard Crimson of graduating seniors showed that 1 in 4 Harvard students simply skip out on sex during college. The survey goes on to claim that "viewing pornography was significantly more popular among surveyed men, 45 percent of whom said they watched it multiple times a week while in college." Now, remember that this is self-reported data, meaning that it's very likely that more than 1 in 4 Harvard undergrads graduate with

Pretty funny piece from The Atlantic on the rampant pervasiveness of the hookup culture at schools (obviously old news) and how it actually empowers women. Some interesting anecdotes as well. http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/…

I recently started a banking job in NYC and don't know anyone in the city. Where do you meet single girls? Where have you had success picking up chicks? I don't want to waste time in random bars.

How did your sex life change after you started working in finance? Did it get better, worse, or stay more or less the same? More one-night-stands or more relationships? All genders and sexualities, fire away.

I once worked for a firm where the culture was borderline immoral. Between the everyday white lies to clients and an unusually heavy focus on production quotas, everything about the firm was off. Basically, I would rather be repeatedly kicked in the nuts than attempt to start my career there. But every morning, I would quell my alarm and think of the one aspect of work that kept me clocking in on time: my downright beautiful coworkers. The firm had a variety of women similar to PornHub's categories section, it was truly a fantasy arrangement of women. I soon realized my sole motivation for

Have you done it? What were the consequences? Did you feel pressured to do so when propositioned by a Senior colleague of the opposite sex? Ok, so I have slept with a Senior colleague (female) after a work function. She was probably a good 15 years older than me. Pretty gross hey. No problems until I turned down her advances at a gathering later the same year. Then, in no uncertain terms, she told me what it meant for the remainder of my time working under her. Have also slept with some Junior colleagues. Was I abusing my position of Seniority? Would I have got that girl if it were not for

So I had braces when I was a Freshman in high school until my junior year but I later lost my retainer on a vacation and my teeth have since shifted. I am now, at the ripe age of 25, considering getting them again. I am an otherwise very attractive woman (it's true). I considered Invisalign but there is an opportunity for cavities. Honestly, what are your thoughts on an analyst having those "clear" metal braces? Do you think it will really tarnish my image? Will I be a distraction to others? My teeth are okay but not perfect. Thank you.

Just curious for those readers from Shanghai, what is the going rate for an hour with an escort nowadays? I received a call on the room phone in the Hotel I am staying in (escorts basically call every room hoping to get a guy on the line) Anyways it is an escort who was surprised I answered in English, so she struggled to come up with whatever English she knew and asked "Uhh Hello, do you want special service?" So I asked how much and she replied 400rmb for 1 hour. So just wanted to know is this a pretty average price? Also does anyone know of any good escort services here in Shanghai?

This question is essential. More important and relevant than any other question I've seen on this forum. Who would you rather fuck: Erin Burnett or Amanda Drury? Yea Amanda is from Australia which is sexy in itself ... but i don't know, I find Erin Burnett way too fucking cute. Only reason I watch CNBC. Thoughts?

I've been looking into different career options in finance and think I would be best suited for sales. My question is, what are the best kinds of sales jobs to shoot for? Is it easier to get a prestigious sales position, than than an ER or IBD position? I'm also willing to work for 100% commission, because my parents live close enough to NYC for me to be a bum, until business takes off.

Its really a toss up for me. It sounds reasonable, but i'm fairly certain most women are offended by the idea. If she asked me to sign a pre-nup, it would trigger my wtf meter. Ari Gold on pre-nups: Ari: Have you ever heard of a fucking prenup? Terrence: Oh, you have one? Ari: I'd kill my wife before I got a divorce.

A few nights ago, I stumbled upon a blog where a guy claims that sleeping with ugly girls is a better option than focusing on the hottest ones. The site was http://www.animusempire.com/do-ugly-girls/. I suppose he has some great points. Getting sex from less attractive girls may be less of a hassle, you get more sex and deal with much less vanity and ego of the 10's. Plus, does your penis know the difference? He makes one think about it from a granular level where I can see where he's coming from. If you've ever spent too much energy going after the princess who turns out to be too much of a

So last month member Bankerella caused a lot of commotion with dating advice and actual rankings for MALE bankers. Her conclusions were (and we may or may not agree with it) that male TRADERS were the best out of the crowd/asset classes, as being the most self assertive and I guess empowered guys out there. I wanna turn this thing around, and, giving the penetration of WOMEN on Wall Street and in Banking in general, now let's see if we (the males) can RATE THE WOMEN according to their rank and file, or to what they do. Are Wealth Managers better dates then Investment Bankers. What about RMs (Relationship Managers). Have you ever dated any Traders ?

A piece by the Observer (fine journalism I know) suggests that our generation of 20-something technocrats has renounced sex for texts and tits for Twitter. I'm not from new york so I really hope this is hyperbole. Any from the city care to comment on their experiences? http://www.businessinsider.com/young-man-who-work…

It's Valentine's Day and love is in the air. Couples are all at their ceremonial dinners, eagerly awaiting all the wanton debauchery that will follow. Single men and women are planning their own nights out, hoping to capitalize on the sad loneliness and desperation of their brethren. Some however are not so lucky. Stuck on a desk with only a computer offering romantic solutions, the long hours of banking are no help in the love department for some of our peers. But fear not young banker crunching away on excel, you may not be getting any tonight, but I have some consolation for you: You are a

There have been many recent posts about relationships and banging one another at top MBA programmes... It's a topic that seems to highjack nearly every serious b-school thread, so I thought it would be useful for you guys to have a dedicated thread to get it out of your system so we can at least get a few serious posts on the other threads... Here's a clip of 4 MBA types (students / grads) discussing this very topic (entirely safe for work) ... http://blog.thembashow.com/2011/05/in-business-sc… I haven't read their book (nor am I going to), but a serious question, are

Wow. I'm at a loss on what to say here. In what has got to be either the saddest or most ill-advised article about twenty-somethings in New York; Nate Freeman of the Observer has highlighted the ridiculous pussification of young New Yorkers, basically saying that you've all become self-obsessed narcissists who would rather do some blow and network than get laid. [quote= The Observer]"YOUNG NEW YORKERS no longer care about having sex. It's not the endgame, nor even the animating force of social interaction. Men and women still get dressed up, but not for the purpose of taking off their clothes

Sadly, at this point this article doesn't even surprise me. Apparently, 15% of people said they would give up sex for a weekend rather than go without their iPhone. Not total abstinence or even a month, 48 hours. That to me is pretty amazing however I'm actually beginning to think that number would be even higher depending on the demographics you select for the study. [quote] - Asked which device or platform they would not be able to live without, a majority (65%) chose iPhone, while only a few (1%) report not being able to do without Facebook.

Those of you who follow our friends over at Wall Street Oasis may have recently seen a post by a 'female banker', who goes by Bankerella. She recently posted a blog about dating different finance guys, which has garnered some attention lately for 'the Wall Street women'. The verdict from our resident Skirt?: Bankerella isn't real. And judging by the replies to her post, those in the finance community have realized this. The non-finance community loves any chance to villianize or label us-men or women-as narcissists or sociopaths, but the Bankerella posts may be a bit too perfect. Here are the giant mistakes in her post, that every #WIF newbie and veteran knows and noticed almost immediately, that made it obvious Bankerella is either fake or delusional:

I was reading an article the other day about why men and women end up cheating and it made me think a bit about it. For full disclosure, I've never cheated on a significant other, mainly because it seems like the risk is rarely worth the payoff - in many cases blowing up a multi-year relationship and creating a drama shit storm for a one time hookup. I'd like to get some input from people who have successfully or unsuccessfully cheated on their significant other. If you were able to do it and get away with it, was it worth it? Do you feel bad about it even though your partner never knew? For

Thoughts? This may be old but still seems relevant. http://blog.penelopetrunk.com/2006/08/03/how-much… In brief: "All we really want is to get paid and get laid." Now it seems that people do banking for 1 of 2 reasons: 1) Want to make a ton of money and then retire/move on to something more meaningful 2) Prestige/wealth = getting laid, respect Maybe a few people do it out of genuine passion for the job. But generally, I don't think it is unreasonable to say that these are the main reasons. My challenge to 1) is that plenty of people are engaged in low paying but rewarding careers that they love to do, and do not plan to retire from (e.g. college professors, ect). Simply giving up employment altogether at 35-45 often leads to depression (85% of suicides among retirees are men). So doing a job you hate for twenty years and then retiring, rather than doing a job that you love from the get-go, doesn't really make much sense.
