When it's late at night, there's nothing better than cuddling up with your favorite sexy, senior ladies. Who are also known as The Golden Girls. As they fight, date, and eat cheesecake, you can imagine that you will be doing the same thing when you are their age. Hallmark has the marathons at night, and as I was deep into one, an episode struck me the wrong way.

It's an interesting time in our country's history. The partisan politics of the Obama years are slowly slipping away, with a new focus on the two parties finally coming together for the good of the country.

My writing career started off writing erotic tales. These books made me good money, and I make even better money now that I am publishing them myself. In each of these novels there was a straight man, who suddenly realized he had feelings for the gay best friend. Or at least he wanted some ass and would do anything to get it. Never would I have thought that I was hitting on an actual thing, it was always pure fantasy for my fan base. However, I was proven wrong and it is a thing. A real thing, that women should be aware of.
