[NSFW] From Kissing to Snowballing: The Fine Line Between Fetish and Freak

A good friend of mine, whom we shall refer to henceforth as Mother Posterior, is in a fairly open relationship with his partner, with ground rules of course. He fancies himself a sexual therapist of sorts; he meets younger men, all of legal consenting age, and rather than simply pleasing each other sexually he likes […]

Reflections On 420: What Will My Friends Think Of The Facebook Photos?

Reflections On 420: What Will My Friends Think Of The Facebook Photos?

I had a little freak-out this morning. It’s something that marijuana reform advocates go through from time to time, and no, it’s not weed paranoia. It’s something much deeper, and it’s something I need to talk about. In the aftermath of a great 4/20 festival where I was one of many speakers, my facebook newsfeed […]

Diane Fornbacher’s Five Beauty Essentials

Virgin Coconut Oil The only ingredient is simply coconut oil and I am totally okay with that. Not only do I not mind smelling like a breezy beach drink, but I revel in it! I get mine in a jar from the local Asian grocery mart ($3 for 17 oz!) but you can find it […]

Hey TSA! My Nipples Are NOT Weapons of Mass Destruction!

In 2013 America, the airport should be the last place I would expect to be sexually assaulted. But I was, and it happens every day. What’s worse is the perpetrators almost always go unchecked and unpunished. How do these violations can take place in public? Easy, these heinous acts are being performed by TSA agents, […]

THE WAR ISN’T OVER: Uncounted Casualties- The Drug War’s Hidden Collateral Damage

PHOTO: Arohasilouettes, Etsy.com. Good news. A dear friend of mine, who prefers to remain anonymous, just got word from her doctor that she is cancer-free, which is a rather astonishing fact given that 18 months ago she was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer and told her survival odds were less than 10%. Even more […]

Crooked Judges Want Your Kids for Cash

Edward “Ed” Kenzakoski was a strong guy. He was an all-star wrestler going into his senior year at James M. Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre, PA and was actively scouted since 9th grade. He was expecting to take the state title and hopefully the scholarships would follow. He had a fair amount of friends, and was […]

It’s Time To Legalize All Drugs, Not Just Marijuana

PHOTO: Aftermath of an alcohol-prohibition era mob hit in Los Angeles, circa 1933. For the first time, the majority of Americans believe marijuana should be legal. In fact, it has not only just become a majority belief, it’s become trendy to talk about—marijuana legalization is probably the only topic that can really bridge the conservative-liberal […]
