October 10: Talking About the Taboo at the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health in Providence

October 6th, 2010 at 2:27 am

This Sunday, I may be breaking my New Year’s Resolution. Pretty dramatic, eh? My resolution was to abstain… from attending conferences this year. So far, so good! But I’m ruining it all on Sunday, I think. I will refer to the thing I’m participating in as an event, or a conversation, or a workshop – […]


I Want to Tell You About India

November 15th, 2008 at 10:59 am

This morning as I was uploading pictures of last night’s Sex Blogger Calendar Launch Party to Flickr and Facebook, I realized that I never did a recap of my time in Berlin. I did indeed post pics from that week on Flickr but I did repost them here. So this post is proof of two […]
