What My Thighs & Career Have in Common

What My Thighs & Career Have in Common
My eyes fluttered open and I looked at the clock: 7:00 am. Jumping out of bed, I waved a quick hello to my first grader, who was reading quietly in the living room, and reached for my phone. Two Facebook business pages: check. Two Twitter feeds: check. Pinterest: Check. Three email accounts: check, check, check.... Read more »

Barbie's New Purpose: To Make Men Hot #unapologetic

Barbie, a doll that little girls (and boys) play with, is on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue, all grown up and ready to give men boners. The companies behind the campaign, Mattel and Sports Illustrated, say the theme of the campaign is “unapologetic.” I call it a bucketful of sleaze. How did this... Read more »

God I Hate My Body

God I Hate My Body
I know, I’m not supposed to say that I hate my body. I’m supposed to say that at 40 I’m learning to love my body. Or I’m so proud that my body was able to produce a new life. But the truth is, I really hate my body. Not the inside. I’m happy with how... Read more »

Women Are Having Anal Sex for All the Wrong Reasons

Anna Breslaw, a sex editor for Cosmo, interviewed what she calls two “anal sex enthusiasts” in an online article that was published November 14, 2013. Here’s what these modern, empowered backdoor enthusiasts had to say about inserting a man’s erect penis into their teeny tiny anuses. “I usually only do it when drunk and if trying to... Read more »

Techweek Chicago Pic Shows How Women LOVE Wearing Bikinis to Conferences

Techweek Chicago Pic Shows How Women LOVE Wearing Bikinis to Conferences
What a wonderful photo from this year’s exciting and groundbreaking Techweek Chicago 2013. Yet again, the technology community is showing that men and women are equals. Objectification? Phooey. Sexism? Get over yourself. In fact, ladies, let’s admit it. This is what we want. We’re asking for it! We want to be judged by how we... Read more »

Surviving Abuse is Only the Beginning: Double Victimization

“Get over it.” “It wasn’t that bad.” “It was worse for me.” “You just want pity.” “You’re a liar.” After surviving a childhood filled with abandonment, neglect and abuse at the hands of my family members and their partners, I thought I’d seen it all. I mean really, after you’re forced to live with a... Read more »

Maria Kang, Matt Walsh and The Photo That Sparked a War

Dear Matt Walsh, I was quickly disheartened as I read your letter to the “Haters of America” this morning. Apparently, you have concluded that anyone who has criticized Maria Kang this week – after a controversial photo of her posing half naked went viral online – are “thin-skinned, jealous, and spiteful” assholes who have nothing...

Where Have All the Blow Jobs Gone?

I’m lazing around Facebook this morning, avoiding all of the work I have to do, when suddenly I stumble into a serendipitous conversation with a gal pal about another type of labor, commonly referred to as the blow job. You remember giving head, right? It’s the activity you tolerated and perhaps even enjoyed early on... Read more »

I am not a Feminist (and neither is Marissa Mayer)

About seven weeks ago, I awoke to find an email from my husband. It had no subject and no greetings. All it contained was a link. I clicked on it, confused, and was redirected to a real estate website that listed a condo for sale. One condo. In that moment, everything changed: my perception of... Read more »

Sex & Marriage: Are You a Withholder Too?

Sex & Marriage: Are You a Withholder Too?
Sex and marriage. It should go together like a horse and carriage, right? Not always, apparently. In the last couple of weeks, I notice that I’m kind of avoiding sex. Well, more than kind of. I’m definitely avoiding sex. In the time it takes to say “multiple orgasms,” I’ve gone from hot to trot to ‘Sorry,... Read more »
