Book Review: Transitions of the Heart

Transitions of the Heart: Stories of Love, Struggle and Acceptance by Mothers of Transgender and Gender Variant Children by Rachel Pepper My rating: 3 of 5 stars I read Transitions of the Heart, a collection of essays by mothers of trans* and genderqueer children, and mostly what I liked about it was that there were [...]

Review of “The Harder She Comes” by D.L. King

The Harder She Comes: Butch Femme Erotica by D. L. King My rating: 5 of 5 stars I liked just about everything in this book. No seriously, I did. And while I don’t identify as butch or femme, I think it’s a super valuable record of “what we do in bed.” By we, I mean [...]

Say Please Rocks It Somethin’ Fierce!

Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica by Sinclair Sexsmith My rating: 5 of 5 stars BDSM is not always my thing. But good writing is, and this book is chock full of it. You might be wondering why I read it, if I’m not generally turned on by leather, or pain, or the wide-variety of things [...]

Your Surprise is Coming in a Minute

  It’s been a while, Crash Pad. For a while, my breakup turned me into a sleeps-at-8, never-dates-never-masturbates, prudish hermit-spinster. Nay, those words are too nice. Perhaps a sex-negative curmudgeon would be a better descriptor. I didn’t even touch a vibrator for months on end. And I’m a sex blogger. For shame. I did watch [...]

In Which a Straight Guy Reviews “Fuck Jelly”

You may be wondering, Babeland Affiliate Liason, why I never reviewed the Sliquid Sassy Booty lube that was so graciously sent to me in the mail in, like, August of 2011. Well, here is that review. The reason I couldn’t review it is because I didn’t read the ingrediants. I know, I know, I should [...]
