Sex 2.0: Atlanta unconference on XXX is really happening and gaining some cool people/participants.
Via Amy Gahran. a tremendous interview with writer Lisa See, feminist must-listen, as Amy says.
Dating is hell, but for some inexplicable reasons, people keep doing it.

Urban Gypsy has some strong words about the Perverts Salon in NYC, a group where some sex bloggers get together- and she asked a question that I wondered about after the weekend at Blogher: Does the internet give people more of a forum to express their sexuality?
Specifically, she writes:
My friend BJ says that the best way to be a successful singleton is to practice, and that once I have five or six years of being solo on my own, I’ll be a whiz at both being alone and dating (doesn’t sound that reassuring, does it?)
