I wanna be a star! If you are a precocious kid who likes attention, you might fantasize about living your life in the spotlight of Hollywood. I remember watching “Star Search” and thinking to myself… “I could do that!” If only I could sing, act, dance whatever. But I had the right disposition – despite …

The Open Marriage

Desire is fickle. Lust fades. Yet we exist in a paradigm of long-term monogamous relationships. Marriage and sexual fidelity are the social norm. Most people are too afraid to admit they are attracted to someone else while married. It isn’t discussed openly, and as a result, millions of marriages have ended in divorce because of …

Almost every woman who has ever been in a public space has been sexually harassed. I have yet to meet a female who doesn’t have multiple stories that range from cat calling, to violent rape.

Even though Robert Palmer made is seem super swanky to be addicted to love, with all those interchangeable women wiggling around while playing air guitar, it is probably a bit more complicated than wearing sweet shades and bopping pseudo-rhythmically to the beat. In a way I feel like we are all co-dependent love/sex addicts, but …

Deep Throating Your Foot

The first time I heard about censorship was when I was 8-years old, and my mom gave me an NWA tape so I could “learn about politics.” She explained that Tipper Gore was heading a campaign to censor rap music, and something about this being a continuation of the war on art – just how …

If you are a mother, there is going to be an underlying texture of guilt no matter what decisions you make. Unless you are a completely well adjusted woman who is impervious to the judgments of others, societal pressures will take its toll. If you work you are abandoning your child, if you stay at …
