Unknown, Yet Sex Sells Everything

Sex is unknown. Shocking, I know, but after all this time we keep redefining what is and isn’t sex. Not all that long ago, I watched John Oliver interview a real victim that Bill Clinton apparently did not have sex with. Yet now, oral sex is very much sex. Or is it? As I discussed two weeks back, some consider …

Truth’s Bluff

Truth is a comedian that often wears a cloak of fact to deceive. It likes to bluff in this game of life. The fact is that truth is about belief, bias, perception, and decision. Fact, itself, rarely influences truth. I’ve tweeted that more than once, but as you can see, it is seven years since the last time. I used …

Negotiating Consent

Bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism…this is BDSM in a nutshell. Though I don’t think it likes being in a nutshell. BDSM would get very grumpy were it in a nutshell. The concept of BDSM is as an umbrella over a wide awry of concepts. GQ, of all publications, gives a very vanilla and beginner A-Z list of some BDSM …

It’s Only Towel Day – Try Not To Panic

Douglas Adams died in 2001. Hard to say, but I am uncertain that the grief over losing him twenty years ago has yet ended. With this in mind, welcome to the twentieth anniversary of International Towel Day (May 25). The day created by Douglas Adams’ fans two weeks after his passing to remember Douglas and his works. The day when …

Dishonesty of Omission

I’ve been listening to a lot of Ray Wilson, lately. You know him, right? No? You’re not alone. Recently, I had a discussion about Ray with Lochlin Cross, host of the Locker Room on 95.7 CRUZ FM in Edmonton. Lochlin is an old high school colleague as I mention in my newest book, In One Convenient Package. Lochlin is a …

The Art of Making Up Stats

Stats really are just another form of the clock. Another way for we humans to track things in the passage of time. This era of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, has been no exception. Stats, like the economy and unlike time, are generally made up. I’ve always been one to make up my own stats about things. As an example, 125% of …

In One Convenient Package

Just a brief note to announce the release of my newest book, “In One Convenient Package – The Adventures of a Polyamorous, Introverted and Atheist Husband – Part I” Introversion, polyamory, bi-friendly, left-leaning liberal ideas, and atheism are all things that, on their own, get many eyebrows raised in judgment. Seeing as I embody all in one convenient package, it …

101 Things Not To Do While in Isolation

Let’s start with the easiest one first, shall we? Don’t write articles entitled “101 Things Not To Do While in Isolation” and actually intend to write seriously about it. Being I tend to do what I say, I am going to follow that first reason and write something else entirely. Too many people with the blues already over the isolation …
