Teach me about sex.

Today's prompt is about teaching sex education. Who should be doing this? Parents? The school? Or a combination of both?...more

A symbol of sex.

I have been called many things. Fat, brat, bitchy, smug, short, mean, cute, sweet. Once I was called beautiful even. In my 50 years on the planet and the 30 or so when it would have been appropriate, I have never been called a "sex symbol". I am not sad about this.I am not even 100% sure it is a compliment. I am also not super confident I even know what it means.I know there have been moments, usually in the dark and possibly alcohol fueled moments, when a guy has groaned that I was "sexy". But am I going to bank on that proclamation? I don't think I will....more

Oh Aristotle...I disagree

Aristotle describes love as, "a single soul inhabiting two bodies".This is so, "you complete me" -esque, I cannot get behind it.

We had discussions about the wording and what we wanted to convey/express.We chose wording like, "I choose you". No dependency wording....more

She gets a divorce and remarries an accused pedophile. One by one her children abandon her and she lives the last 30 years of her life with the deviant, until he leaves her for another woman and subsequently dies. She dies alone. As broken on the outside as she was broken on the inside....more

Read it and weep..

I own literally 100's of books. Maybe even 1000. My dream is to have an entire room filled, wall to wall, with books. And I want one of those super cool library ladders so I can buzz around the room and get a book, high or low....more
