About the Neil Strauss Interview

First off, here's verification (and my friend Rico's stomach).

Secondly, here are some things we can discuss:

  • Big relationship questions: a. Monogamy and consensual non-monogamy? b. Can I really be with someone forever? c. Is there such a thing as the one, and how do I know? d. How do you keep passion and love from fading? e. Why do people cheat?

  • Writing, and any questions about writing books and journalism, or my work at The New York Times or Rolling Stone.

  • Any of my books, from the first (Marilyn Manson: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell) to the most recent (The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships)

  • And of course, the one book that I wrote ten years ago and won't go away, in all the best and worst ways: The Game

  • Anything

UPDATE 3:50 PM: Hopping off now. Great questions. Will check back in later. Will also jump into a certain subreddit afterward to answer some of the questions I saw there about these subjects. Thanks to all who participated.
