The Handmaiden — The Twistiest and Most Wildly Sexy Movie I’ve Ever Seen

I’m so happy I saw The Handmaiden in the theater. I almost didn’t. I couldn’t help but notice the movie when it came out. It received a lot of great press. I had already seen the director’s breakout hit import, the mind-bending Old Boy, which was a riveting complex tale. Park Chan-Wook is not afraid to tell a strange, sexually charged story, that’s for sure. So, of course, I took note of his new movie. I considered making the trek to the theater to see it. But I don’t watch a lot of movies these days. Time is precious now....

Sexolutions 2017 — Let’s Make Something Better than Boring Resolutions this Year!

New Year’s resolutions are so boring. Besides who actually keeps them beyond the first couple of weeks—or even days? Before we even flip our calendars to February, most people have long forgotten about their resolutions. We’re just not good at keeping them. According to one study, only a measly eight percent are successful at keeping their resolutions. Why? Maybe they’re just too boring. So, instead of facing another New Year’s Day making the same old pledges to lose 10 pounds, read a book a week, or learn a new language, I’ve got a new better idea for this year. Let’s...

“You Are SO Beautiful” — Remember This Truth This Year and Always!

I attended a sex conference* in the summer of 2016. And I cried. The event featured Emily Nagoski, Ph.D., author of the bestseller, Come As You Are. It was for therapists, but lay people were welcome to attend the early afternoon session. I arrived not knowing what to expect. I ended up staying for the whole thing. I couldn’t leave. The insight on women’s sexuality was riveting, eye opening, and mind expanding. I wanted to soak up as much knowledge as I could. It’s not every day you get the opportunity to hear the truth about women’s sexuality from an...

“Gimme Dat Becky” — Was Beyonce’s “Becky with the Good Hair” a Step Back for Sex Positivity?

“Who’s Becky?” That was the topmost question after Beyonce Noel released Lemonade on April 24, 2016. It launched one of the year’s top pop-culture stories. One line—“He better call Becky with the good hair”—had everyone wondering who she was. One actress was even attacked by the Beyhive because they thought she was “Becky” (and, so, was likely cheating with Jay Z, allegedly). However, “who’s Becky?” wasn’t my top question thanks to Wendy Williams. Without her, the whole Becky controversy would have went right over my head (wink, wink). Wendy boldly jumped into the whole Becky thing with this pronouncement: “Becky...
