Amid the cheap Collegetown cocktails of attraction, scandal and drama that my peers and I indulged in whilst throwing darts at our degrees, there’s a theme I noticed that kept coming up time and time again: mostly, the women to whom I found myself attracted did this thing; it’s either a practice they followed, or, in many cases, they taught: yoga.

The male lover who lacks the warrior’s fierceness and commitment to a transpersonal cause is a Don Juan running about the streets with a bouquet of flowers in one hand and his dick in the other.

I started out as a five-year-old starlet perched on the round coffee table in my parent’s living room, the paparazzi photographer none other than my Kodak-camera infatuated father. In this kindergarten diva phase I’d ham it up with arms flung wide, gleeful smile and mischief in my eye. I loved being the center of the [...]

This might be the ultimate April Fool’s day post—I was google-image-searching for “assless jeans,” looking to write an April Fool’s post making fun of American Apparel’s neverending (and successful) search to offend the world and further-sexualize women through fashion.

Masturbation has everything to do with you. Sometimes it feels good to touch yourself; as in it sometimes feels just as good, if not better, to touch yourself, than to be touched by your lover. No one is going to touch you like you do. In fact, dare I say that if your lover knows your [...]

Romance: Fate or faux? For those of us of the romantic disposition, imagining new love objects to be Ms. or Mr. Right is a chronic condition. Such idealization is made even more irresistible when there are ‘fated‘ events, when we run into him or her coincidentally or when other synchronicities to do with them occur. [...]
