Need Cash, Will Copyedit

February 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

I wrote a book review recently that was less of a review and more of an appeal to people who love books to please abide by professional book-publishing standards before publishing books. It happens so often these days: everyone has a book in them, as the saying goes, and it’s easier than ever [...continue...]

A Rant

January 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

I had a conversation last week with Anna B. Volk about America’s fascination with understanding bad guys. It started with my fears about the upcoming live-action movie about Maleficent, the villainess from Sleeping Beauty. I’ve been a fan of Maleficent since I was a child because she [...continue...]

Sex in 2012: Hooray for Sex, and Fuck You, Maxim

December 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

I REALLY want phdsandpigtails.com to be wrong about this actually coming from Maxim… but … I was thinking about doing a year-end roundup of public sex in 2012, but a few other people with much more significant means than myself have done it already, so I give you the best of the best-of [...continue...]

Men’s Health is Unhealthy for Everyone

December 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

See that diagram? That tells you how to be the perfect woman. At first I responded a little huffily to this article on Jezebel, which takes to task the (ostensibly female) writer of a Men’s Health piece called “11 Qualities of the Perfect Woman.” In it, Lindy West rants about how [...continue...]

PMS is a Real Bitch

December 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

It took me almost thirty years to admit that PMS is a thing. I’m two months and a day from the big 3-0, and I’ve only in the past two years or so become ever-so-slowly aware of what a crazy person I turn into the week before my period. I never wanted to fall into that self-perpetuating [...continue...]

Not to Toot My Own Horn, But…

November 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

Motherfuckin’ toot, y’all. I am not at liberty to say what’s afoot, but it could be massive. As such, I’m devoting my energies to trying to finish this article for xoJane and blogging about unrelated stuff instead of obsessing over my possible-maybe-really-huge-news. So, [...continue...]

5 Reasons Not to Vote for Mitt Romney

November 6, 2012 | 0 Comments

Sure, I’ve got my issues with Obama. I wish he’d done some things differently. I don’t approve of the drone wars, for instance. And I wish more progress had been made on environmental issues. But, for the love of all that you consider holy, whether it be pornography, women’s [...continue...]

5 Reasons to Vote No on Measure B Tomorrow

November 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

For those who don’t know: Measure B will appear on Los Angeles County ballots in tomorrow’s election, and if passed would require adult performers to use condoms, gloves, and/or dental dams in all porn shoots filmed in LA County. It would also require the funding and deployment of LA [...continue...]

Even More Not-Quite-News! And a tidbit.

October 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

1) I was interviewed last night for a piece on You Are Here, a slice-of-life radio program that airs on 88.9 WERS in Boston! The topic for the program was the economics of porn, and I somehow got called as a person who knows about this stuff! No word yet on when the show will air, but it should be [...continue...]

Feminism Shrank Rush Limbaugh’s Dick. Poor, Poor Rush.

September 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

I know it’s kind of silly to get annoyed by Rush Limbaugh at this point. The man has been making his living by pissing people off for years, so pretty much anything that comes out of his mouth is designed specifically and only to do just that. He’s held to no standard of decency or [...continue...]
