I’m usually not one to read the latest in the never-ending series of books all best described as “I Was A Sex Worker Despite The Fact That I’m An Educated, Middle Class White Woman”, but I did pick up Audacia Ray’s Naked on the Internet, mostly because the book promised to be about a lot […]

When I posted this photo on Flickr, along with a bunch of other pictures Eliyanna took at my event at Internationalist Books in Chapel Hill back in June, it got a few comments from folks who follow my photostream, the first of which was “ok. first thought to cross my mind: dirty old men. :D” […]
