Yesterday, I had a job interview (for a very cool but non-sexy job.) One question they asked me was: "What makes your heart sing?" What I really wanted to say was "Well I really love freaky ass sex and seeing people be themselves in safe environments whether they want to be a man-boy-girl, a dog, a pony or a unicorn wit...

So for those who don't know, I am down with non-monogamy. I was talking with my friend, who is also down, about what do you call your partners/lovers/sexy friends/boyfriends/girlfriends/whatever-you-call-them!? She used to have a primary partner who would introduce her as a "friend," which, understandably used to irk her. ...

What it is: The njoy Eleven is a sex toy of mythic proportions (by that I mean 11 inches).

I have been on some pretty bad dates. But this one takes the cake. Online, "Ford Prefect" let's call him (I hope you get the reference), seemed like a perfect gentleman.

So, after my previous post about some minor sexual harrassment I encountered, I really thought I was done with this topic. However, being an attractive young woman in certain fields is apparently more difficult than others.  I went to a meeting for the same client as my previous episode. There was the same tension there, though this ...

Dear Dixon, I know that the object of jealousy can never "fix" the way someone else feels. It's up to the person feeling jealous to deal with his or her emotion.
