The List

It's not cheating. Well, maybe it is but, Friends made an episode about it, so it's ok. 

I mean, we're taught to seize the moment and never say no to opportunity. So don't tell me if John Stamos invited you back to his hotel room you'd deny him. I know I wouldn't. 

I'm talking about The List. You know...THE List.

The list of no more than 5 celebrity guys or girls you have the freedom to sleep with, should the opportunity present itself, whether you are married, single, divorced, or in limbo (everyone's favorite stage). 

The rules are simple. The 5 celebrities of your choosing must be alive and as they are now. As hard as I wish, no seance will make Patrick Swayze rise from the dead. And sorry, but if you want Richard Gere, you have to want him in all his 66-year-old glory. Can't go back to the 1990 Pretty Woman version. That ship has sailed. 

So, John Stamos, Rob Lowe, Javier Bardem, Bradley Cooper, and Jon Hamm...I'm available.

Because I like to torture my friends (that's the point of having them), I reverted back to good old peer pressure and forced some names out of them.

The results were underwhelming.

Channing Tatum was the top male with David Beckham a strong second. The appeal is obvious, especially with Beckham, but I had hoped my friends were a bit weirder than that. 

In total, I collected 69 different male names and 24 female. 

Bob Saget ( a friends dream DILF), Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, Morris Chestnut, and Idris Elba were some standout choices.

The key is to go for a mix of international and within the States. Like with anything, you don't want to put all your eggs in one Gucci basket. 

Rashida Jones, Ronda Rousey, Julie Bowen, Catherine Keener, and Elizabeth Banks represented a lovely age range. It doesn't get weird until someone thinks your date is your grandparent.  

The usual suspects like Beyonce and Jessica Alba were also mentioned.

Emma Watson made the lists of several guys and girls, 10 points for Gryffindor!

Admit it, fantasizing abut your list is pure unadulterated entertainment and can be a great distraction around 2PM on a Monday. But what if you actually came face to face with a human on your list. Would you go for it? If you were married and it was your spouse, would you throw a drink in their face or be non-realistically cool? 

Unlike Ross Geller, my list isn't laminated and safely stashed away in my wallet. Much more modern, mine is in my phone protected by a passcode. 

This is serious stuff. You have 1 night with each of your 5 people. Make the most of it.
