As Seen In; Let’s Talk Safe Sex

Well it’s that time of year again, PRIDE, and I for one am looking forward to it big time! The people, the energy, the vibrancy, feeling, attitude, camaraderie, unconditional love and support! Need I say more? Oh yeah, the sex, lots and lots of sex, and more sex!



Celebrations like these generally warrant the abundance of love and PDA’s and not so public PDA’s. The closed door action, or in my case the open door action! Come on, I’m no angel and most of you know that from what you’ve read, seen, or taken part in with me and my gang. I love a good ol’ celebration as much as the next person and I get right down to it if given the chance! Go for it, call me the “ethical slut” I’ll gladly own that one.

Or making sure all the curtains are closed and the sound turned down while you trip on over to your favorite porn site for a little self pleasuring?

Say what? Shut the fuck up! You mean to tell me you truly think that you are the bomb and always get her hot and wet each time? You get her telling you the water is always warm so jump right in? Okaaay! (more…)

As Seen In; Sex, Sex, Sex!

Sex, sex, and more sex! Yes thatʼs whatʼs itʼs all about, that strange wonderful desire controlled by the not so elusive chemicals we call hormones. They dictate how we act, develop, desire, and for some control their every action and thoughts. Trust me, cause as some of you may know and for those that donʼt, hormones certainly have me by the short and curlyʼs! (more…)
