Punish Yourself and Turn Sex Into Work, Schedule it

As I sit here trying to come up with a compelling first post I am being fully annoyed by a text alert that won’t stop beeping, a frickin’ fly that won’t leave my greasy hair alone (that’s a lie, I’m bald) and a crappy laptop keyboard that won’t let me type an “A”.  Have you... Read more »
