Photo by Molly Algernon Note: This is a guest blog I wrote on the Clothed Female Naked Male fetish (or CFNM) for kinkandpoly.com. A few years ago I was at a munch and I was complaining that since my first Dom had moved out of state, I was having no luck recreating my ideal situation: providing service to a […]
Katie Lewis of Motif Magazine. My Bare As You Dare clothing optional workshop has been called “life changing.” I think it’s safe to say that writer Katie Lewis of Motif Magazine got more than she bargained for when she attended: “My dare this month was to prove that my clothes don’t make the woman by […]
Sexual hang-ups. We all have them. However, whenever I discuss mine, I’m always met with surprise. It’s as if, because of the work I do (as co-founder of Sex Positive St. Louis, as a traveling sex educator and freelance sexual guru) I’m expected to have absolutely no sexual hang-ups at all. I’m human. I’m not […]
So, back in November I flew to New York for the release of “The Big Book of Domination” the erotic anthology that my work is included in, from Cleis Press, edited by the awesome D.L. King. I had the pleasure of staying in the home of author Laura Antoniou and her lovely wife Karen. I knew […]
Ellie Krupnick of mic.com on the new Poly Life smartphone app. Looks pretty cool, but I’m not trading in my Google Calendar just yet. Read about it here.
So last week I presented at the IvyQ Conference at Dartmouth University. It’s a conference of LGBTQ Ivy League students. To say the least, I was intimidated.

Back in 2012, Stephanie Co, the co-founder and then coordinator of the World Naked Bike Ride St. Louis, asked me to put together a workshop on body image to help promote the ride. In retrospect, it’s a little embarrassing that the idea hadn’t occurred to me before that, but I jumped at the chance. […]
Check out Kiera Butler’s article for Mother Jones on Why BMI is a Big Fat Scam. Been saying this in my body image lectures for years, the BMI is bullshit. According to it, I’m currently overweight, borderline obese. The last time I was at the high end of normal, per the BMI, was the same […]
Nice article by Rachel Manteuffel about nudity in theater from the Washington Post. It caught my eye because the photo of the author looks like it could have come from my Bare As You Dare: Radical Body Acceptance Workshop, which I’ll be taking to Dartmouth University next week. More on that later.
The speech I gave to The Ethical Society of St. Louis on The Ethics of Polyamory is available as a podcast. Huge thanks to The Ethical Society for the opportunity and for making the recording available online. One important note: further research has shown me that the numbers I gave on infidelity are probably closer […]
