Hey Dove, What About a “Happy” Door?  Personally, I love the idea and commitment behind the Dove body image campaigns, and this is a great effort, but in my humble opinion, I think adding a “Happy” door would have been more impactful. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.      

Fifty Shades Of Grey: Has it Changed ...

Fifty Shades of Grey has repeated its runaway US sales success in Britain.

No matter how you feel about ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ one must admit it has opened up our national conversation about sexuality. By now, you’d have to be living under a rock if you haven’t at least heard of the E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, let alone not read the trilogy. Fifty Shades is Twilight for the “Soccer Mom” set […]

LIVING ON A FAULT LINE: SEXUAL SHAME ...

I’ve never written a blog before, but recent media news about the sexual allegations against Jian Ghomeshi have prompted me to think more deeply aboutideas that this project, this film, have caused me to explore in the last few years.

Understanding what we, particularly as women, are willing to bear in our sexual relationships and encounters. I know very few, if any, […]

20 Things I Didn’t Know About Love, Sex and Dating Until I Hit 40 ~ by Elle Chase

When going to a swinger’s retreat, make certain your partner isn’t packing a tiny, leather, Borat-style “unikini“ to wear at the poolside fashion show. Being “in love” and being “in lust” are both very disparate and different things that deceptively, can seem like one and the same. Sex is messy. You’ll need a towel. When […]

(originally published on www.EvolvedWorld.com) By now, you’d have to be living under a rock if you haven’t at least heard of the E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, let alone not read the trilogy. Fifty Shades is Twilight for the “Soccer Mom” set and just as poorly written, yet women can’t get enough of […]

Seduction at Any Size, by Kitty Cava...

IMG_1263-copy

One of the most undeniable virtues of a true Sacred Seductress is the way she loves her flesh. A Seductress loves every inch of her self: smooth skin, dimpled skin, parts that stick out, parts that just don’t. It is all as beautiful as a sunrise to her. Because of the conviction in her self-love, the judgments […]
