new musing about dessert


At long last, I’ve managed to put together something longer than a diary entry. Alas, it’s not fiction (which I really should get to) or reviews (three or four of which I really MUST get to, perhaps tomorrow) but some writing nonetheless. A new musing called deep fried ice cream, to be exact. Those of you looking for salacious and horny tidbits might as well pass on this. It’s...

why are breasts indecent?


Several years ago, there was a big hubbub here in Ontario about women’s right to go topless in public. Big debates raged. Lots of press coverage. I believe that the law was eventually passed to make it legal to do so. Not that you’d notice; I’ve yet to see a topless woman go walking about. Good thing we went to all that trouble, debate and discussion, hm? The problem, as I see...

first kisses


Ingrid Bergman once said, “A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous”. There's some truth to that. There are many times in my life when a kiss said more than words could ever say.

If sex was a colour, what colour would it be? There have been times in my life when it was white. White for love, white for purity, that wonderful music-swelling-in-the-background, proper camera lighting, young-lovers-well-met, joyous, this-is-the-love-of-my-life kind of sex. Just like in the movies. Don’t let anyone tell you it doesn’t happen. It can. I was lucky enough to find out...

josey vogels for president?


Well, okay, perhaps we shouldn’t go quite that far. Still, I’ve enjoyed her My Messy Bedroom site for the last little while, and her latest article, Feeling Fine, is hilarious. I think most women would get a hoot out of it. Guys might learn a little something they didn’t know, too. She’s talking about orgasm. Not the back-bending, ear-splitting, easy-to-get-as-a-cold kind...

on my own again


It’s been a year since I asked my husband to leave. Within a few weeks, I’ll be putting our divorce into motion. The past year has been a dazzling whirlwind of changes and experiences. And after the drought that was my marriage, many of those experiences had to do with men. I’ve dated nearly constantly for the past year, meeting and spending time with some really wonderful men...

as the world turns


Picked up a great little book last week called the Sex Lover’s Book of Lists. Just a whole bunch of trivia, really. Hundreds of lists about everything and anything sexual. I just finished the first chapter – History of Sex – and though I already knew a fair amount of it, I came to a realization. In the 19th century particularly, masturbation was bad, wrong, and believed to be...
