USA Today on Dr. Dot

I am so excited about the USA today piece that was printed yesterday (Jan 8th, 2013). This is the 2nd time I was lucky enough to have the international newspaper write about me and my massage team. They have 30 MILLION readers online per day and 1 million readers who read their printed version per DAY. My friend/client Richard made this possible this time and I am very grateful.


The online version can be read here:ย

and they put me on the COVER of their print version:

To say I am grateful would be an understatement. I am happy my whole massage/chiro team will more work from this, all 702 of them deserve it.

The last time USA Today did a piece on me was in 2004 (Associated Press did a massive story about me and this is the USA Today blurb)

So, thank you Richard and thank you USA Today and especially the author, Craig Wilsonย who was very fun to talk to x

The guilt is going to kill me

I am so f*cking busy since I landed, massage clients of mine are kind of fighting over who gets the next massage. They have been waiting for months, so new clients sadly have to wait a bit. This one man has been asking for a massage the last couple days and I told him he could have one next week. Now I feel like a prick. Look what he wrote me today:



"We had spoken / e-mailed several months ago. I had read some of your advice in the New York Press. I had written to you and you always responded to me in a very funny and considerate way. As a normal man, your picture attached to your
work always drove me crazy. Anyway, I'm in the Army Reserves and my unit is
being activated. I am leaving the city today and will be head to Camp Shelby,
Mississippi on September 3rd to get ready for our deployment. for the past few
weeks, I've been doing some things in the city that I had thought about but
never did. For example, earlier this month I went to my first Yankees game.
I've been hitting restaurants that I've seen but never tried. Things like that.
Yesterday I got this wild idea that perhaps I would be able to meet you so I
took a chance and decided to write. I should have planned ahead but I won't get
into my organizational abilities. Unfortunately, I will have to wait many
months until I get the opportunity to meet you.

Thank you for getting back to me.


 I hope he makes it back to the US alive. 

Fuck George Bush and the Government for sending so many people to fight wars he started. I was thinking something last night that will sound like me nagging AGAIN, but it's my blog and I will vent if I want to. So there. One thing that pisses me off SO MUCH about the USA is the fucking AIR CONDITIONING. It is SO FUCKING COLD in all restaurants, shops, cafes, bars, cars, homes, hotels, omfg!!! I went into Blimpies last night (sandwich shop that originated in Hoboken, NJ) and ordered a healthy sub on whole wheat but it was BELOW zero in there (all employees wearing heavy sweat shirts, jeans, hats) that I HAD to take it to go. I ate it in my fucking car outside. I turned blue just waiting for them to put the sandwich together, couldn't wait to get the fuck out of there.  You go out to eat here and it's colder than a meat locker. THEN they serve you ICE WATER. OMFG. I don't know ANYONE in Europe who has an air condition and my friends all think I am a diva because I have a fan in my room. A tiny, plastic fan, mostly to drown out the noise of my annoying neighbors who love to recycle their glass bottles at 8 am. My friends whine about how much electricity my fan is using. ha ha. If they ONLY knew what goes on over here in yank land. 

 Jasmine told me during her school orientation she had to wear a jacket, hat and scarf as she was freezing. What the FUCK is wrong with this place? Every apartment I have been in has at LEAST two air conditioners running full power, full time. NO WONDER there is an energy crisis. Come on people. It is summer, enjoy the summer weather. You HAVE to bring so much clothing with you when you go out here. It is HOT as FUCK outside, but if you go ANYWHERE indoors, you freeze your cunt off. Most Americans are over weight, which makes them sweat and feel extra hot, so they "need" the air conditioning so they don't sweat like a pig. If everyone would eat less, use less energy, the world MIGHT start to like us. BUT NO, we were NEVER taught to think this way here in the USA. No one teaches you to turn off lights when you leave a room, turn down the heat if you don't need it, recycle, etc. They just consume, consume, CONSUME without thinking "hey, maybe I should do my part and save electricity and energy and recycle as the world is only getting more and more crowded and someday energy supplies may deplete!". You would think the massive BLACK OUTS they have would wake people up. BUT NO! The Government would never hold a press conference and say "come on people!!! recycle or fucking die!!" because we have to keep up the "land of the free" charade. 

Land of the FREE: Free to waste, free to ignore, free to consume without any concerns of the rest of the world, which, like it or not, do effect everyone. I find myself wearing MORE clothes in the summer here than I do in the winter. It's out of control. THEN there are the dryers. Everyone in the USA has a dryer to dry their clothes. I don't know ANYONE in Germany that owns a dryer. NO ONE. We hang our shit dry and it's no big deal. Clothes last MUCH longer that way anyways. I even hung Jasmine's cloth diapers dry every fucking day. Took a while, but it feels great to conserve. It's hard coming back here to the land of waste, I mean, plenty. 

Cracked me up the other day (more like a smirk of disbelief) when they were discussing on the news how Californians are the first folk in the USA to start taking care of their left over food wastes. AS IN, instead of throwing your orange peels and left over food in the normal trash, they put it all in a special container, handed out to them by the town office and it gets picked up and used as fuel/soil fertilizer. NO FUCKING SHIT Sherlock. I have been doing that, just like everyone else in Germany and most of Europe for YEARS. In the USA, they even have garbage disposals built into their sinks and they STILL throw left overs in the trash, which is why we have land fill problems. We have to wake up here and change the way we do things. It's so annoying how far "we" are behind here in the USA. Very sad. I apologize for our ignorance. Sorry. 



Having fun in NYC, but by that I mean, having fun working.  I am so swamped I feel I will never get around to doing my France and Italy blog and now I have another Foreigner (the rock group) blog to do. LOTS going on. Penthouse Forum are so on the ball compared to the last news paper I wrote for here in NYC. They pay promptly, answer my emails promptly (and politely) and even sent me a dozen copies of the May 2008 issue that I am on the cover of. I opened it and found the BEST intro ever. My column feels at home. Love it! I scanned it in:


I massaged Kim Raver ( of the shows "24" and "Lipstick Jungle") again tonight- non stop massage for three hours. Wonderful lady. She can take as much pain as I can during a massage. Extreme deep tissue the whole time. Tough woman I tell ya. Funny how the women seem to be able to take more pain/pressure during the massage than men (apart from Harry Connick Junior who seems to be made of steel). My fingers are actually aching as I type this, THAT'S how strong the pressure was. Going to sleep it off

Bring “Ask Dr. Dot” back to the NY Press (hey, it’s worth a shot)

The NY Press is apparently regretting letting my sex column "Ask Dr. Dot" go this past September. How do I know? All of the bad press they are receiving about the hiring and firing of several sex columnists since mine was dropped. Hey, we all make mistakes. 

Please write to the editor of the NY Press (David Blum) that you would like to see my column back in their paper:



Tonsil HELL – continuted

Yesterday I was in severe pain and notice on my pain killer bottle that I could take "one or two tablets every 6 hours" so I decided to take two. BIG MISTAKE.
I grew pale and got that tickling feeling in the belly and my friend Catherine caught me each time I vomited, as I faint every single time I puke. I HATE IT. I hate puking. Not that anyone likes it, but I fall all over the bathroom and end up lying on my back sometimes with puke in my mouth, which is dangerous. I get so freaked out when I have to vomit.
I faint and it takes me minutes to come to.  I wake in a sweat and it feels like I was out for hours. Puking is not good with a freshly operated throat.

After a few hours of vomiting and fainting, Catherine called the ambulance. They were too busy, so they sent the sheriff to bring us. He had his sirens on, running red lights and all, I was in too much pain to laugh, but I did find it humorous in a twisted way. Not so funny though when we arrived.
I had to wait over 30 minutes until they finally gave me medical attention. Waiting in the waiting room was no fun fyi, why? Because we don't speak SPANISH.
The TV was on a Spanish station, everyone there was speaking Spanish and it was all extremely loud.
I found the energy to turn to Catherine and whisper:
"what country are we in?" which wasn't meant to be funny, but it made Catherine laugh out loud. But seriously, Spanish is the main language in the usa now, but I don't fucking speak it (yet).
Guess I will have to learn it.
After a few hours of lying there with an IV shoved in my veins, we took a cab home and today my throat feels 10 times worse.

HOLY FUCK this pain is the worst I have ever had. I feel bad for Catherine as I am boring and miserable right now. BORING. Lying around in pain. She is a great friend indeed.
I have no appetite at all. Can't get enough ice water, but it hurts to swallow each time.
I am sorry to moan and whine, but I wish this was over with ASAP.
Steve Vai is playing in 4 days, I have to get better, I want to see the show !

 ps. Good news is Joanne Harras of the NY Press sent all of my checks, yay! And I have gotten loads of emails from confused NY PRESS readers, asking me "where is your column!???". They are shocked and sad. Like me. Oh well, there's always the blog, I will keep posting Ask Dr. Dot weekly, as soon as my throat heals (will it ever?)


The NY Press passes the buck

Getting ready to have my tonsil operation. They will be removed Tuesday morning, bright and early ( I will probably just stay up as I have to be there at 6am).

The fact that the NY Press dumped a few of it's writers, me and Ed Koch (former NYC mayor) included because of their new format isn't as annoying as the fact that they probably knew ahead of time, like end of July that they would be dumping my column as that is why they didn't bother to pay me for all 4 of my August columns or the first week of September's column. For all 5 weeks, my column was printed but yet they won't pay. They are passing the buck. The new editor David Blum changes his story all the time. First excuse was "it will just take longer, but you will get paid". Then it was "It is not my responsibility" then he told the New York Post reporter Keith Kelly that I was already paid and that he is "only in charge since 1 August" (DUH, that means he should pay me for August and Sept, no? WTF!??). The New York Press is simply passing the buck.



Jerry Portwood, the old editor, well, he is still there, but was demoted as now David Blum is the big cheese, claims it is the new editors responsibility. The paper simply disrespects it's writers; always has, always will. For the couple years I wrote for them, my column was ALWAYS punctual, yet my pay was always late. Always. They conveniently paid one month late and yet let me know one week before my column was dumped so you can imagine, I will never get paid. It's not the amount that bothers me, it is the principle that big corporations like Manhattan Media (which bought the paper recently ) can shit on the little people and get away with it.

The Libra in me is into justice and I can see it will take a while until Justice is served. I will keep you posted. Of course emails to David Blum and Jerry Portwood wouldn't hurt either. heh heh..

"Let it go" some say. Just let it go. Let the German guy who chased me (stalked me) and knocked me out in January get away with it, let the NY Press get away with having 5 weeks of my great sex column for free. Let everyone just go ahead and take advantage. Nice people get walked on, like a fucking rug. Karma is taking a break I see. Hope she gets back soon and kicks some serious ass. 

Jasmine is in Italy now, studying Italian. She loves it there. I will visit her in October.. she said where she is, is like the Kreuzberg of Italy. Hippies galore. Dread locks galore. Cross yer fingers she is safe over there, my little flower.





Britney Spears finally explains ^ her less than excellent performance at the MTV "music" awards last week

NY Press reader goes to bat for the dumped Dr. Dot column. Sweet :)

Doomed Dr. Dot
"I’m saddened to learn that  Dr. Dot’s sex column will no longer be running in your publication. While I understand that with new ownership comes change, I hope it will be taken into consideration by Manhattan Media that the loyal readers of the NY Press did not ask for change and certainly are not looking for a more conservative publication. Dr. Dot is…Dr. Dot and, frankly, that’s what your readers want. Sex cannot be removed from real life, and I think to remove Dr. Dot’s column will not only make the paper just another ordinary publication, it will lose you a lot of readers. New Editor-in-Chief David Blum, having previously been with the Village Voice, surely knows this to be true and knows what it takes to make a publication unique.
—Kathy Beall, flight attendant and loyal NY Press reader"


 If you want to express your self about my column to the NY Press (it won't help anyways) but you can write to:

I am grateful for having a page in the NY Press for so long. Hoping something else in the city comes along, some paper with enough balls to host my column. My column is still alive and kicking here online and in the ExBerliner < click it

My column will no longer be in the NY Press as of Sept. 12 2007

"Dear Ms. Stein,

As you may know, the New York Press has recently changed owners, and is making
changes to the editorial content of the paper. As a result, we will no longer
be running your column in the Press, as of the September 12 issue.

Thanks for your contributions to the Press.


David Blum"
New editor-in-chief
I heard the new owners are very conservative and don't want any sex in their new and improved paper. 
Now I am looking for a new paper who has the balls to host my column. The Village Voice would be the best
but they already have a sex column.. Syndicating it would be even better. How does one do that?
