Don Draper to Discover Cruel World of Celibacy, Hints Times

episode 1 don 760 Don Draper to Discover Cruel World of Celibacy, Hints TimesAs we venture off into the weekend, we leave you with a tantalizing Sunday Times morsel. From Alessandra Stanley’s piece on the new season of Mad Men:

Don, who had women falling over themselves trying to get him into bed when he was married, finds himself alone in a dark Greenwich Village apartment, shining his own shoes and going out on blind dates. Being a bachelor back in those days before the pill and “The Sensuous Woman” did not automatically include swinging. Don tries to kiss a young woman in the back of a cab but can’t get any further. She won’t let him accompany her to the door to the Barbizon, then a women-only hotel, because, as she puts it coyly, “I know that trick.”

Blind dates.
