"Sexually, I'm More Of A Switzerland" by David Rose

No, I haven't read it. From what I understand, it's a compilation of personal ads from the London Review of Books. I'm just curious to see if anybody else here has read it or not, considering the title.

Haven't read it but looks like something of a collection of people's nightmares.

You must have seen my thread about emigrating to Switzerland. Looks like I'm going to lose an entire week without pay thanks to the snow! I wonder how people at the Swiss embassy are reacting to this mess...

The Swiss embassy was open. I got my visa during those days. Now I am in Basel, just arrived yesterday.

i'm intrigued by your response... but frankly, it says little until you reveal your own gender (or orientation), does it ?
