I'm exaggerating, of course. The goal is to hook you in with upfront $$$
committments. The club director said the average tenure is 3-4 years,
active use 7-8 mos/year (2+ visits/wk). The roaming agreements are way
cool, though.

An overwhelming chunk of the clientele is already-buff undergrads (say,
1/3) -- disposable incomes are waay too high in OC :-) ($52k median at last

On the other hand, after years of theoretical consideration, the constant
navel attack on the byways of campus has illuminated one of the great
condundrums in Ro-theology: what made the 97%?

Yes, I can now imagine how it is possible to think about sex for four years
