You may know that I'm a relentless optimist. Particularly when it comes to writing about sex and sex work, I'm especially upbeat. Especially in times like these, when there's so much trying to divide us, I think the unity and happiness of sex are more important than ever. So, you won't be surprised by the upbeat attitude behind the articles I wrote for Glamour and MEL, and the interview I did with Sex City Radio. [...continue...]

Buy My Book(s)!

November 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

Hello, world! It is officially the conspicuous consumption...er...holiday season! I'm using that fact to shamelessly promote my books! I only feel slightly bad about it, because I believe that they make excellent gifts for sex-positive folks who like nonfiction or comics, and porn. So, hey! Buy my books! [...continue...]

#metoo Thoughts and Exhaustion

November 12, 2017 | 1 Comment

When the #metoo hashtag began after the outing of Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein as a serial, and apparently unrepentant, sexual predator, I added my voice to the growing tidal wave. I’ve been sexually assaulted numerous times, harassed, catcalled, objectified…you know, the usual. [...continue...]

My two latest articles, at Vice and Men's Health, show my passion for pulling the things we're ashamed of out of the closet they live in, giving them a hug, and presenting them to the world in better light. Demystifying them, as it were. [...continue...]

BBW Porn Awards (or lack thereof) at Glamour.com

September 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

I wrote about AVN’s recent decision to do away with the “BBW Performer of the Year” award for Glamour! It was a shock when I heard it announced earlier this month. I remember when the award was announced for the first time back in 2013, and how excited everyone was. So its sudden [...continue...]
