We Left Each Other

I have been trying to find a way to address this on the Internet without being a nine year old or a bully. I have decided the best way to do that is to declare my good intentions, though we all know the road to hell is paved with them, broken and no longer shiny. [...]

I’m Going to Be in a Real Paper Book with Actual Binding

Well folks.  It’s official.  The Table of Contents is posted on one Sinclair Sexsmith’s website and yours truly is officially smack dab in the middle of Best Lesbian Erotica 2012 published by Cleis Press, Edited By Kathleen Warnock, and selected by Sinclair herself.  Jae says I’ll be insufferable because the very first book one of my [...]

To Doubters of Writing

It breaks my heart when the people I love don’t take my writing seriously.  When family members say maybe my writing will take off and I can’t tell them that people actually do come to my blog and read my words, because then they would know I write about sex.  Or worse.  When people who [...]

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Orgasms

So it is taking me far longer to animate my first Babeland toy review than I thought it would.  Blame my previously mentioned drawing non-talent.  So I want to post something for you all to feast upon while I finish.  Jae stumbled upon this TED talk last night on her phone and immediately handed it [...]

I Could Paint Each Inch of You

This is Jae, through my eyes and my very limited drawing non-talent. Done in the airport as our flights kept getting cancelled and we decided to ditch the plane and drive on an adventure. She’s the most amazing when she’s being spontaneous. And it makes me want to do things like sketch her poorly. And [...]

Dyke Dating 101: The Brooklyn Bridge

We need to be less lazy.  So we made it into a date. You see, I used to be an actress.  Which means I used to move around a whole hell of a lot more than I do as a writer.  I used to have this cute four-pack abs–the bottom two that would have made [...]

Happy Easter, You Sex Blogger, You

A quick hit for today:  Jae’s Easter e-card, sent to me just moments ago.  From someecards. Independently of this, I also sent her an e-card within minutes, unaware that she had sent me one.  I chose the following. We are wildly inappropriate.  Happy Easter to you all, or Happy Sunday.

Dylan Ryan and Jiz Lee Teach Me About Gift Giving on My Anniversary

My possums, I have wronged you.  I forgot to tell you what my other special anniversary Crash Pad episode was.  One of my go-tos.  Starring two of the hottest queers this side of the Milky Way. Jiz Lee and Dylan Ryan.  I wish you could see my face right now.  Just typing those two names [...]

Why Sideshow Rocks My Socks

Sideshow:  The Queer Literary Carnival had its one year anniversary last night.  The theme was “siblings” and the performers were Anne-E. Wood with a fiction piece in the form of letters written to a younger brother, Katie Liederman with a comedic ode to her sister featuring a story about peeing on her, and Kay Ulanday [...]

Butch Lab Symposium Number Two!

  Sinclair Sexsmith is kicking ass and taking names with her Butch Lab project, an examination of gender and identity and all sorts of things.  Plus hot pictures of butches.  And plus this cool idea, Symposium, where bloggers chime into a specific topic–this quarter’s topic was: “Butch Stereotypes, Cliches, and Misconceptions: What do people think “butch” [...]
