  1. Ridiculous. Anytime someone tells you to sex-it-up and it’s the opposite of the intended fix of sexual harrassment and rape, just ignore it. “Off Limits” really does mean stay in your own space. Stay home or lock yourself up in your own private space.

    • Hi BradTom;

      If it was up to me, a 1980s Van Halen denim jacket — David Lee Roth era only — would get you all sorts of freebies. Then again, this is perhaps why it’s not up to me. Saw ’em in 1982 at Riverfront Coliseum on Diver Down tour and then was in 17th row for the show at Cincy Gardens on the 1984 tour. “Unchained” is still one of the great live songs by any band, period.
