Confessions


Confession: The Never-Ending Period

This post contains frank talk of menstruation. I’m also going to talk about the mental health effects of hormonal birth control, which for me included suicidal thoughts and self harm. If that bothers or upsets you in any way, feel free to skip this post! Why not read a review […]


Confession: Family Day Disaster

This week, I want to give a bit of a snapshot into our real life. We’re parents. Life is messy. And, it seems every time we try to do something as a family, things go sideways, and last week was no different. In fact, it was one thing after another. […]


Confession: Our Nightly Routine

I don’t remember when it started, but it’s become our thing. Carrie and I have a nightly routine. Occasionally, when one of us has had a particularly hard day, the other will offer to do it without any reciprocation. Once in a while, one of us will have too much […]


Confession: It’s Been 1 Year Since My Breakdown

One year ago, I suffered a terrifying mental breakdown, requiring me to go to the ER. I was then hospitalized on a psych ward, where I was prescribed Latuda for my particular brand of bipolar 2. I’ve talked a lot about being mentally ill here on my blog, and a […]


Confession: My Last Sex Toy Party

I was more nervous than I knew I’d be. I’m always a little nervous, but I was particularly restless that Saturday. This would be my last sex toy party for the foreseeable future. I put in my notice to quit my contract with my sex toy party company several weeks […]


Confession: Woodhull #SFS16 – Finding Comfort

“It’s not a cold! It’s just allergies!” Oldest protested after I asked him to sequester himself to his room. After all, we were about to go on a week-long conference in a few days, Youngest was about to spend that week at a sitter, and it would be horrifically bad […]


Confession: Latuda Changed My Life 1

A little over 6 months ago, I suffered a terrifying mental breakdown and was rushed to the ER. I then spent a few days on the psych ward. Many readers have asked how I’ve been doing since. It’s been a little quiet around here, but that’s mostly due to burnout […]


Confession: I Am Angry – Politics, Privilege, and the Pulse Shooting in Orlando

Content Warning: Gun violence, homo- and transphobia, racism, and general insensitive Christian cishet nonsense. I think I nearly made my awesome, but incredibly empathetic therapist cry during our session on Friday. There is so much going on about this whole situation that hurts and infuriates me, but I can’t seem […]


Goodbye, Orgasmatronics 1

Orgasmatronics is no more. I received an e-mail last week announcing their closure to affiliates. Soon after, their newsletter followed. They’ve filed for bankruptcy and gone out of business. I was really excited when, the weekend before, they seemed to have a flash 50% off sale all of a sudden. […]


Confession: Untangling My Relationship with Porn

I have a strange history with porn. When I first became a feminist, I avoided porn. Carrie and I both did for a while, since there’s a nuanced question of consent that keeps coming up, and I think that still plays into my viewing of porn today. I’ve also experienced issues […]
