The First Year of Marriage is NO Honeymoon!

We’ve all heard the conventional wisdom about marriages, that newlyweds embark upon a “honeymoon phase” during the very first year. When I was married, however, I think that phase lasted one or two months and then the serious challenges kicked in. This was something I was prepared for because before getting married, I talked to my married friends about their relationships. The vast majority of  them said that the first year was the most challenging....more

Are Bloggers Afraid To Talk About Sex?

I'm a sex writer.  Well, I'm more than simply a sex writer, but I'm very open about the fact that I  write about sex-related topics in my blog and in other media. I have no problem with being known as a "Sex Writer" mainly because I feel that women have the right to speak openly about sex from a sex-positive point of view, rather than a shaming one.

Holiday High Fashion Without the High Cost

Every year when the holidays come around, I am inclined to take a look at my closet and realize I am just not prepared. Without fail, as the temps drop my eyes wander to my limited wardrobe and I mentally calculate how I will be able to afford the outfits I’ll need for 10 days in New York, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Although it may not seem like a lot of money to many, last year I spent over $200 on a New Year’s Eve outfit. It was stunning but not very practical.
