Here's what is at stake: Recent censorship of online discussions of sex and pornography -- not the porn itself, but discussions -- isn't an issue of us versus them, morality versus indecency, conservatives versus liberals, believers versus atheists. This is a matter of freedom to speak, freedom to congregate, freedom to learn about ourselves and to share that knowledge. That's what this country stands for and it's essential that those of us who believe in these tenets take a stance against those seeking to oppress them.
Parents- Do you sometimes feel like your kids have a radar that can sense the moment you and your partner are about to have a little intimate time? I can remember when my oldest son was about still a tiny little brown sack of curls...without fail, the moment my husband and I were about to spend quality time together he would wake from his sleep and start crying at the top of his lungs.And of course, as first time parents we would run to his aid, only to find that absolutely nothing was wrong.
As he got older, I am inclined to say that his radar became stronger....more
I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but here it’s 103 and I’m staying inside where it’s cool. Since I’ve been traveling all week with almost no internet access and absolutely no cell phone service–that’s right, I was on vacation in Hell–I’ve got lots to catch up on. Thankfully I’ve got the Sexis Round-up! ;)...more
It's been a while since I've written about The Hubby. Why? Because I'm busy...and frankly, too tired. That sounds awfully familiar. Perhaps because I often use those words, "I'm too tired," as the standard response whenever The Hubby wants to do the horizontal mambo...err, toss salad...get jiggy with it...you know what I mean...have SEX. ...more
Internet Dating - Welcome to the 21st century version of Blind Dating. Yes this is how I see it. My definition of Blind Dating is being in the dark pretty much about another person.
In the past it would be a friend or someone we know recommending another person and we would go on a date to meet such a person. Not because a friend told us about that person would it necessarily mean he or she would be good for us. We went on a wish and a prayer that it would be what we desired.
I find internet dating to be the same. Instead of being introduced to someone by family or friend we are introducing ourselves to someone based on advertisement or by someone whom we know has been lucky to find their partner through that process....more
I just finished skinnydipping in the dark at a secluded villa here in Ajijic, where I will be staying for the next three weeks. I wrap myself in a giant towel, dry my hands, and begin to write. This amazing property belongs a pair of friends I met last year as they were passing through the Nahua Indian fishing village where I was living; we became acquainted, and they invited me to come house sit for them at their estate in Ajijic while they returned to the US for a month. I accepted, and within days of my arrival at their home here in Ajijic last April, I fell in love....more
There is a new game being created to promote abstinence in teenage girls. A girl wins points if she says no to a boy. First of all, we can see the utterly undeniable sexism in this idea and because it is so obvious I’ll just skip that rant. What is more annoying about this is that instead of teaching against peer pressure they should be teaching the safety and risks involved in sex. This video game is pretty much peer pressure in itself....more
