Episode 5 of Asylum is my favourite of all three seasons. You're in for a fun ride! (Asylum is still my favourite - I hope they get back to that quality.)

We are in total agreement! Here's to happy, healthy sex lives in whatever way works for us. :)

You are wonderful for writing this, thank you. I would add "discomfort over the idea that the porn is an industry whose foundation, originally, is built on women who were desperate or coerced": it can be seen as representative of inequalities and misogyny on a larger scale. (Just the fact that the Internet insists on Read more

Long-distance fistbump. Mine is 5,000 miles so you HAVE TO get creative about ways to vicariously get pleasure from / with each other. It's healthy. And because of the time difference, if he does it while I'm not around, he often lets me know how it went. :) Read more

My vote for "easiest target" would be "tummy" because it's in front of you all the time, and you can't conceal it with bras or sculpting jeans. Like, if I gain even 3lbs, that's where it all sits, and suddenly NOTHING fits comfortably anymore - if I get a pair of jeans that fits on the waist, my thighs are Read more

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you had a glitter addiction, there's no way it's a secret. There's a reason it's known as "the herpes of the craft world." That shit gets EVERYWHERE. Read more

Supportive pedantry: I don't think you need to qualify with "emphasis mine" when you're transcribing a verbal comment, because you're not changing something that appeared elsewhere in a slightly different format originally.

I'm fighting back tears, here. That was courageous and beautiful. Well done, Solomon.
