And now, a cute picture of our cat. I love it when Lydia curls up in a tight ball, with just one back leg sticking out. I love it when she curls her tail over her paw. And I’m entertained by the image of the cat falling asleep in front of the TV while channel …

If You Weren’t An Atheist, What Would You Be?

No, I haven’t disappeared

Perfect Porn and Other Myths

This piece was originally published on the Blowfish Blog. Please note: This piece discusses, not so much my personal sex life, but my tastes and preferences in porn, and it does so in some detail.
