My feels when I reconnected with the world.

So I went to Montana for ten days. It was amazing. I had a blast. And my tablet screen broke so I couldn’t use it at all, and I had zero cell reception and only the spottiest WiFi capabilities, so I was pretty much incommunicado the entire time. I didn’t even realize taht there were places in the continental U.S. that remote at this point, but there are! And that is Not a Bad Thing! I’m glad I was able to unplug for a while–I definitely needed it.

But now I’m back, and WOW, world, did you ever wind up to punch me square in the face when I stepped off that plane at JFK. For the love of Jiminy Cricket. Holy crap.

First of all, Ferguson. What. Is. Going. On. In this country?!?! I really can’t even begin continue →

I’m off for a two-week-ish vacation in the Wild West, y’all! I wish I’d had time to prep some blog posts for while I’m gone, but alas, there is never enough time for all the things I want to do. However, while I’m on vacation, hopefully I’ll have some brilliant insights I can blog about when I return.

For now, leave me some love while I’m away and I’ll see you when I get back!

It’s crazy how the universe works sometimes. I’ve been talking a lot recently, in my personal life, about how things that have happened in the past have the power to fuck things up in the present. Experience from my past, and the feelings they bring up even years later, cause ripples in my life, both in myself and in the people around me. Sometimes a small event that triggers me becomes a huge milestone moment in my life when I don’t want it to, because the ripples can rock into the brains and feelings of other people and cause them to relive their trauma, or can bring up major issues that have not been confronted, and so on. What I mean to say is, something that happened in the past, that seems to be dead and buried, can come back and bite you, whether it was your fault or not, whether you want it to bite you (or anybody else) or not. The past is the foundation of the present, and sometimes it’s a moldy nasty awful foundation we wish we could demolish. But we can’t. Or we’d fall, too.

This is all a roundabout way of getting to the topic at hand: continue →

I think she is making that noise at this very moment.

The post I wrote last week about how I generally dislike watching people exchange spit in adult films got me thinking. There are a bunch of things I see in the pr0nz that I’m not a big fan of, personally, and I’m interested in getting feedback to see what other people have to say about them. Not that anybody ever comments on blog posts about pornography, but… it’s worth a try.

Anyway, here’s another thing I find not-so-sexy in my porn viewing: that particular noise that some performers make, in which they suck in breath through their teeth. It makes this sharp hissing noise when they inhale. And it irritates and distracts me. continue →

A new article of mine was published over the weekend at Luna Luna! This one is an advice column to a young man named James, who wonders how to get his l0w-libidoed girlfriend to be more interested in sex. I wish him the best, of course, because it’s my fondest wish for everyone to have more great sex in their lives, but I also cautioned him against trying to “convince” her, and to try listening instead.

A sample:

That's me at last year's festival!

That’s me at last year’s festival!

It’s that time of year again! What time of year? you may be asking. The time when we take off our shoes and lay around on the grass? The time when we buy food-truck morsels and have a picnic? The time when we take a free ferry to a free poetry festival and enjoy the summer on Governor’s Island?

Yes. All that. This weekend is the 4th annual New York City Poetry Festival on Governor’s Island in New York City! It’s free, it’s fun, and it’s… something else that starts with f… Fabulous! Yes. Fabulous.

This year’s festival has the added bonus of hearing me read some of my new poetry, if you’re interested! I don’t know if you know this, but I’ve been working on a book of poetry for the past nine-months-ish, and it’s almost ready to finish gestating. So I’m giving it an ultrasound with the Poetry Brothel on the White Horse Stage at 2:10 on Saturday, July 26th, and you all are welcome to come listen!

I’ll also be offering private readings for a modest fee in the Poetry Brothel’s house on the island from 3:00 – 5:00 this Saturday. Come on in! It’ll be dark, moody, and probably soaked in wine.

AND THERE’S MORE! Luna Luna Magazine will have several poets of their own reading on the Chumely’s Stage on Saturday at 1:20 p.m.! On Sunday, Patasola Press will have a reading at 1:00 on the Algonquin Stage! Hyacinth Girl Press will be on at 4:00 on the White Horse Stage! And so much more. C’mon out! Say hi!

That's me, pondering important issues on my sick day.

That’s me, pondering important issues on my sick day.

Soooo here’s an admission. I’m out sick today and I suddenly started thinking about the issue of spit being exchanged in “adult films.” And I realized I don’t really dig it when people drip spit into each other’s mouths, or spit on each other’s faces or anywhere else. I see it pretty often, and it kind of grosses me out. continue →

happy-birthday-luna-lunaIt is truly boggling my mind that Luna Luna Magazine turns one whole year old today! It seems like just a few weeks ago I penned my first article, “A Primer on Porn You Can Watch Without Feeling Like a Terrible Person Afterward,” for the benefit of our readers. But it’s true! Our indomitable editor, Lisa Marie Basile, asked a few of us to start a blog with her last July 15, and over the course of the Earth’s last revolution around the Sun, Luna Luna has transformed from 10 or so driven writers and a few readers to over a million hits to date, more than 50 regular writers and contributors, numerous articles that have gone viral, regular features and columns, and general badassitude on a scale nobody could have predicted. continue →

I recently discovered a new website that piqued my interest: FrolicMe.com. In recent months I’ve been thinking and writing about the similarities and differences of romance novels and erotica versus pornography, so when I found that FrolicMe combines short erotica stories with still shots and video of actors portraying what happens in those stories, I got excited.

Here, in one place, are all the basic mediums through which humans titillate themselves with sexual fantasy. On one website! What a cool idea! The site’s elegant, sleek aesthetic got me very interested, indeed—as if high-end erotica had morphed into films that are sensual without the standard “porny” feel. They felt very much as if someone had stepped into a romance novel and filmed the action while keeping the romantic, not-as-hardcore feel.

Needless to say, I had a few questions for the sites founder, Anna, so we did an interview!

How did the idea for FrolicMe come about, originally?

It is something that just grew from a blog I started a few years ago now. I was writing a personal diary really, continue →

The gun-safety  organization Evolve released a commercial recently that’s gone viral. You’ll see why if you watch it below.

Pretty funny, I have to admit. And I love it that commercials like this exist, cause duh lock up your guns, people. I’m glad Evolve is a thing. Awesome.

Also, I’d like to point out that the pink toy in there appears, from the glimpses I’m catching, to be a double-ended dildo. Yeeeeah, Mom! Get down witchobadself. And whomever else you’re using that monster with.

But… But. I have this sort of… grr… continue →
