Kink Is Dead! Long Live Kink! at MEL Magazine

March 23, 2017 | 1 Comment

I got to wondering: was the post–Fifty Shades kink bubble popping? Had pop culture's obsession with fetish and BDSM and Ben Wa balls reached its high-water mark? Was mainstream kink in America over? I started hyperventilating and dreaming up picket-sign designs along the lines of "We'll Never Go Back!" But then I righted myself and spoke to kinky folks from lifestyle consumers to the tippy top tops at FetLife and Kink.com about what the heck is going on. And I came away with a much more nuanced understanding of the situation. (Hint: The bubble may not have burst, exactly, but it has changed.) [...continue...]

Spermin’ Berman and the Ejaculating Dildo, at MEL Magazine

February 8, 2017 | 0 Comments

I talked to Berman about the strange and rewarding trip, and to one of her biggest fans, Buck Angel, about her toy, the POP dildo, for MEL Magazine, and I came away smiling. This product is making a difference for a lot of people, and that makes me happy. Who knew a squirting dildo could be so inspiring? [...continue...]

Brothel Museums and How Women Won the West

September 19, 2016 | 0 Comments

It's interesting to think that in states that are now staunchly red, such liberal ideas once flourished. And not so very long ago, either. And it's even more interesting to realize that these brothels contributed to the early days of white settlement in America. [...continue...]

I Wrote About the First Sex Toy for Trans Men!

August 17, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Buck-off is the first and only pleasure product designed specifically for the bodies and needs of trans men, and luckily for me, the wonderful people at MEL Magazine were just as stoked as I was when I told them about it! The result is an article I wrote for them, with the help of Buck himself and his co-developers at Perfect Fit Brand pleasure products. [...continue...]

I make the majority of my living on proofreading and copyediting books for major publishers on a freelance basis. This leaves me with many #writereditorproblems. Case in point: I just finished proofreading a novel that I found utterly repugnant, and I need to relieve some pressure. [...continue...]
