I’ve been a busy little sex geek this past little while… and posting sporadically as a result. This is just a quickie to round up a few fun tidbits, but I’ll be back on track soon. I think. (Anyone got cloning technology available? Drop me a line, por favor.) Monday night, my esteemed colleague Jacqueline… More plugs and promises
Fresh off the bus from Toronto, I welcomed ten women into my home this afternoon to enjoy the film Desert Hearts, based on the 1964 novel by Jane Rule, Desert of the Heart. It never fails to fascinate me to see the differences between a book and a movie, most particularly when it comes to… More the word and rule, or book 1, film 0

The other day I got a couple of “free hugs” via Facebook… and then my brother called me from Ottawa to say that someone had just given him a free hug on the street and… More the politics of “free”
And the reviewing madness continues. Next up in Peggy Kleinplatz and Charles Moser’s Sadomasochism: Powerful Pleasures is a study by Peter L. Dancer and the two book editors themselves, entitled simply “24/7 SM Slavery.” The most amazing thing about this article is not that it’s well-written, lucid and un-pathologizing, but that the study was carried out… More an exploration of 24/7: please, authors, may i have some more?
Okay, okay, probably not, or at least not any more so than every single member of any other group is likely to be a pervert. But it is an awfully nice thought. Anyway, this is going to be the shortest post in months (for real this time). I just thought I’d share a link that… More are all writers perverts?
