It's Not Just You: Women Are Losing Interest In Men, Dating, And Marriage
Lately, I've been noticing a bunch of interesting trends in the online world. And in real life. As a geriatric Millennial, I grew up in a world where dating was just what you did. I was the type of person who genuinely needs to be married to be happy. Most people my age, especially female-presenting people, tend to have had the same vibe.
Ask A Porn Star: Vinnie O'Neill
I remember when I first heard about Vinnie. We were doing a rough draft of a podcast where it was me and three porn guys talking about the difficulties men have, and where porn can help. (You'll see it eventually.)
The Steak 48 Debacle: A Critic's Take
Hello! I'm not sure whether you know me by my reading, but I'm a food critic. As a food critic, I've gotten a lot of insight into the way the food world works. There are a lot of restaurants that tend to make people talk about them---and not in a good way.

Yesterday, I was browsing Twitter and I saw an article on a racist attack against Asian-Americans. The day before, I saw a forum post about the most misogynistic things people have heard. It's a daily occurrence for me. Well, it's a daily thing for everyone. Hate crime is everywhere.
10 Things No One Tells You About The Dangers Of Being A Sexworker
Hey there! I've been working in the adult film world as a writer, interviewer, and jack-of-all trades for years. When I was younger, I was trafficked. So, I've seen a lot of the scene.

#FreeBritney: A Lesson In Slut-Shaming
So, unless you've been sleeping under a rock, you probably have heard of the #FreeBritney movement. It's a movement that was heavily publicized under the New York Times's "Framing Britney" documentary. For a while, I wasn't interested in what they had to say about her conservatorship.
