The pleasure of baring it all for a cause

Bali, the “island of the gods”, an indulgent pleasurable place of realization and enlightenment. To me, Bali will be all that and more.

Live from the SSSS: Sexual Pleasure as a Positive Right

This week, I’m attending the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality’s annual meeting in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Aside from being a beautiful place where the balmy ocean breezes are caressing my skin even as I type (and the sounds of Mexican karaoke are assailing my ears), it is home this week to a gathering […]

The Courtly Pleasures of Safer Sex

What is your deepest, most secret sexual fantasy? Is it to have super mutant powers like the X-Men? Or is it be a quirky spy like Austin Powers who always had enough mojo for a shag? May be you’re the type to whom power is an aphrodisiac? Or the amorous kind who falls to their […]
