Carnival of the Liberals #41

Carnival of the Liberals #41 has just gone up, and they were kind enough to include my piece on the Blowfish blog about abstinence-only sex education, No Sex Please, We’re Democrats. This is actually something of an honor, as the Carnival of the Liberals is a fairly selective blog carnival — they only list the …

Homer the Vampire Slayer

If you’ve seen even one or two Buffy episodes and vaguely remember the opening credit sequence, I think you’ll be tickled by this. And if you’re a rabid fan of both Buffy and The Simpsons, I think you’ll bust a gut laughing. FYI, you do have to have your sound on for it to be …

Why I Don’t Write More Porn

I love writing porn. It’s satisfying professionally as a writer, and it’s oddly satisfying sexually as well. The act of taking a sexual fantasy and fleshing it out in words, as clearly and vividly as I can, can take a fleeting bit of whack-off imagery and solidify it, deepen it, turn it into something I …

Bless Me, Physical Universe, For I Have Sinned

A couple of other atheist blogs have been doing this (Friendly Atheist and No More Hornets), and I thought I’d get in on the fun. It’s the Atheist Confessional. I’ll get the ball rolling. Bless me, Physical Universe, for I have sinned. When I engage in one of the most central and profound secular activities …

This Week

Here’s a dirty story. (Family members and others who don’t want to read my porn: Now would be a good time to stop reading.) I wrote this story a couple of years ago, and it’s become one of my favorites. (Not that the list is that long — I don’t write fiction nearly as often …

Attack of the Giant Prehistoric Chicken!

“We have a gigantic chicken!” This is about the funnest thing I’ve seen all week. We all know that birds evolved from dinosaurs, right? But until now, the fossil record that we had showed that the creatures got smaller and smaller as they evolved away from being dinosaurs and into being birds. Not this baby. …

No Sex Please, We’re Democrats: The Blowfish Blog

So a a House subcommittee recently voted, not only to continue funding abstinence-only sex education, but to increase funding for it by $27.8 million. To see me rant about this — er, analyze it and put it in context — come visit the Blowfish Blog. Here’s a taste: Very few people — and even fewer …

“Many are finding welcome relief…”

“Many are finding welcome relief through the gentle vibration, adjustable soothing heat, and dilation provided by the Dila-Therm.” Yeah, I bet they are. I think this is hilarious. I knew about the history of vibrators, and how early/ vintage vibrators were marketed to women as health and beauty aids — in language that barely disguised …

Joined At the Brainstem: Relationships and Privacy

Several years ago, I read a piece of relationship advice that always stuck with me. (I wish I could find it now; but I can’t, so I’m going to have to paraphrase.) It was by a lesbian relationship adviser, and she said that in the first six months of her relationship with her partner, they …
