Scientist Turns Out To Be Ex-Hooker, Awesome

This isn't her, but we like this photo better.

We here at Gunaxin have to admit that as stupid as we find the idea that the mind is the biggest erogenous zone, there’s nothing sadder than a great climb up the staircase to find there aren’t any lights on in the attic.  Not that we’ll turn her down, but we’re probably not calling her back. This is why we fall down and praise God for women like Dr. Brooke Magnanti, who just came out as the blogger Belle Du Jour.  It turns out that like most graduate students, she burned through her savings and needed money.  She had a job as a computer programmer, but needed a job that paid well and didn’t eat up all her time.  Hence, hooking.

She actually quit her computer programming job because she found sex with strangers more fun.  Also, her hooking money let her afford her PhD, where she’s now a respected scientist in cancer epidemiology and developmental neurotoxicology, meaning she’s smarter than our entire bullpen. Sadly, Dr. Magnanti retired when she got her job fighting cancer, which we guess is more important than being a hot, intelligent prostitute.  Kinda.  Sorta.  Whatever. Stupid cancer.
