LET'S BEGIN with a different kind of word association game, shall we? When I say the word "married," what is the absolute last word that pops into your mind? How about, oh ... "lust"? Those are two words you don't see linked every day, right? Yet "Married Lust" is the title of a new book that just crossed my desk, written by Pamela Lister, a contributing editor to Redbook magazine. The subtitle, by the way, is: "10 Secrets of Long-Lasting Desire." Look, I don't know how it is with you. But when you get to be my age and someone hands you a book with "lust" in one title and "desire" in the other, you tend to sit up and take notice.

After watching the scene between new real housewife Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey's assistant, Carlton “Mr. Couture” Morton, play out on the season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” I had to know more. In case you missed it, Kenya Moore was invited by Cynthia Bailey to be a judge at a casting call for JET magazine's “Beauty of the Week.” At the casting Kenya practically tore the girls apart, throwing out rude comment after rude comment. Cynthia's assistant Carlton stepped in to save the models, telling Kenya that her comment was insulting.

Sappho's Leap, by Erica Jong. W.W. Norton. 320 pages. $24.95 Whether or not you'll get anything out of Erica Jong's new book will depend almost entirely on whether or not you read for distraction or for edification. If for edification, Jong's name has probably long been on your eschew list. That, or you've always regarded her work pretty much the way you regard the planet Pluto: You know it's out there, but you know you're never going to go there. If, on the other hand, you read for distraction, then you probably devoured Jong's salacious claim to fame, Fear of Flying, when it came out in 1973, and you've probably been following her wayward scribblings with mild and, you'll pardon the expression, petering interest ever since.

Appropriately, we found an engaged couple who not only watches "The Bachelor" but can't wait to recap it for you.  Tune in to the season premiere at 8 p.m. Monday on ABC and check back on TV Lust for Sarah and Chris' first recap. We'll let them take it from here:  It was an accident. We had no intentions watching "The Bachelor" with cult-like fervor. It happened during a snowstorm in 2010 when my fridge was full, but my DVR was empty. As we flipped through the channels, we heard a clip of "On the Wings of Love" (Season 14 with hot Jake and crazy-eyed Vienna)

Not just to embody but to act the throes of passion, with every inch of flesh exposed - that's what first-time movie actress Tang Wei does to the hilt, and way beyond the hilt, in Lust, Caution, Ang Lee's otherwise ponderous tale of intrigue in Japanese-controlled Shanghai during the Second World War. Tang Wei brings a terrible and awe-inspiring purity to an impure character: the key performer in a patriotic theater cell that becomes an assassination unit...

Eighteenth-century writer Choderlos de Laclos, whose novel "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" chronicled the rampant amorality of the French aristocracy just before its cataclysmic demise in the revolution of 1789, once expressed the hope that his incendiary work would be talked about long after his death.He's gotten his wish.Hollywood employed Glenn Close, Michelle Pfeiffer and John Malkovich to turn "Dangerous Liaisons" into a riveting film in 1988. It has become an opera, and in 1985 British playwright Christopher Hampton adapted it for the stage at the behest of London's Royal Shakespeare Company.

Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's erotic espionage thriller, Lust, Caution, has been given an NC-17 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, signaling to parents that the film may be inappropriate for audiences age 17 and younger, and restricting admission to only those 18 and older. The film earned the MPAA's strict rating because of "some explicit sexuality." Focus Features, which will premiere the movie today at the Venice Film Festival, issued a statement yesterday by Chief Executive James Schamus pointing out that the company has accepted the rating without protest.

Ken Girardini woke up to an unpleasant surprise Monday morning: Someone had set fire to his John Kerry campaign signs at the end of his Sykesville driveway. It was the latest incident in a rash of political signs being vandalized and stolen in Carroll County. "It sort of makes you mad, and it's also sort of scary that people could be so intolerant of somebody else's views that they would do something like that," said Girardini, 46, a self-employed metalwork artist and registered Democrat.

Kudos to Dan Rodricks for his recent column in The Sun ("In anger and pain, little sympathy for the 'deaths of others"). I would have been stronger in my words, but he provided a good antidote to the unquestioning lust for war and violence, and so-called "patriotism" that has led America into this period of endless war and the national security and police state we now live in. The mainstream corporate media, including The Sun - I thought...

America is witnessing an epidemic of hand held phone lust! We have become a nation of techno-addicts — and there is a trillion-dollar industry feeding the hunger! Those overnight lines for the new Apple device are a clear symptom. Why are we relentlessly tethered to instant communication? Today Americans suffer from isolation and loss of physical contact from one another. It's frightening to see folks crave the iPhone 4s ("Apple fans get early dose of iPhone fever," June 25)

Happy "Top Chef" Eve everyone! I know that most of you are hungover from alcohol, chocolate, or both (I'm not judging!) but please cleanse your palate because tomorrow marks the premiere of "Top Chef: Texas" at 10 p.m. on Bravo. And I'll be handling recaps this season for TV Lust. I consider myself to be a connoisseur of "Top Chef. " As a faithful viewer since Season 1, I have seen the show serve up some amazing challenges and characters, and some that were less palatable.

Despite the title, the CW's "Vampire Diaries', now in its third season, is not all about vampires. Though it started out eerily similar to the overrated "Twilight series" - human girl falls in love with vampire boy (or really an old man stuck in a boy's body) - the show has progressively added onto its supernatural storyline.   Throughout the first two seasons we were introduced to witches and werewolves. Now, in the third season we're dealing with an idea other vampire/werewolf shows and movies have not yet tackled (or have been smart not to)

The Best Year of Their Lives: Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon in 1948 -- Learning the Secrets of Power By Lance Morrow. Basic Books. 312 pages. $26. Occasionally a nonfiction book comes along that renders the seemingly familiar in a brilliantly conceived new way. So much has been published about John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon that a downright fresh new book about any of them -- much less all three of them -- seemed unlikely, circa...

A few funereal faces in the executive ranks would not have been out of order during the recent introduction of the new Jaguar XJS at the British carmaker's American headquarters in Mahwah, N.J. After all, Jaguar sales, like those of other expensive driveway furniture, have suffered in these recessionary times.But U.S. sales figures that look like London during the Blitz were not cause enough for the stouthearted Englishmen in the Jaguar bomb shelter to lose their sense of humor.Thus it was that Michael Dale, head of the company's U.S. operations, began by congratulating his predecessor, Graham Whitehead, on the "impeccable" timing of his October 1990 retirement.
