Here’s my conversation with Norah Vincent, who spent a year pretending she was a man — joining an all-male bowling league, going on dates with women, visiting strip clubs, working as a door-to-door salesman. We discussed how much of a disguise she needed to pull all this off, what she learned about men, how horrible it is being a man trying to pick up a woman in a bar, and how men relate to men compared to how women do. I also asked what it was like for her to use the men’s room, and how the the people she deceived felt after she revealed her real identity. It’s a fascinating experiment.
