Porn Nails and Ponytails

As a general rule, I tend not to make New Years’ Resolutions. I make resolutions all the time, but I don’t feel the need to make any extra effort at the beginning of the calendar year. The thinking behind this is that resolutions ought to

Daisy Daisy

In the Summer of 1999 Daisy joined the class for one term. I know it was 1999 because we were learning about farming, and I know it was the Summer term because no teacher in his right mind would arrange a camping trip in England

Eroticon USA Meet and Greet

In exactly – exactly! – a month, I will be in Atlanta, at Eroticon USA. To say this excites me is a huge understatement. I cannot wait to be there. Along those lines, if you haven’t got your tickets yet, you’d better move quick before the

The User Manual

The personal user manual is an idea I got from Cunning Minx on her podcast, Polyamory Weekly. It’s a great podcast, and I love Minx’s no-bullshit, straightforward approach to non-monogamy. Her own user manual is a great read, and acted as a good model when
