Tom is a 30-something married man; well-spoken, articulate, and easygoing. He also gets off on constipated women.
I first heard from Tom after I initiated a conversation about constipation. He soon emailed, declaring, "There's nothing sexier than a woman who can't poop." While most of our significant others might beg to differ, Tom seemed pretty sincere — and, since Google wasn't really turning up much on the subject, I wanted to know more. So I spoke directly on the phone with Tom, who cheerfully agreed to an interview (and who was not, thankfully, a heavy breather). With what follows here, may we all gain a better understanding of the enigma that is the human condition.
