The Story of 5-0Category: General   Oct 25th 2017  08:50PM   0

When I was in my late 30s, a psychic told me I’d be very happy in my 50s. He said I’d have a great life from that age on. I wanted to kick him—that's 12 years away, for Christ's sake. Instead I smiled and nodded, then stewed about it for a decade. (Not really…just three or four years.) I like to think I manifest my own destiny—to some degree, anyway—but I never forgot his words, his very provocative prediction.

Onward Through The FogCategory: General   Jul 20th 2017  08:58AM   0

I had a dream last night that I was lost in a strange neighborhood. I was walking in a hurry, on the pavement, past old stately houses and historical buildings, but instead of heading down the even prettier side streets full of big lawns, colorful homes, and elaborate landscaping, I stuck to the main road thinking I'd get where I needed to be in less time. I was speed-walking versus taking a leisurely stroll, as much as I would've liked to enj

Making Love After Making WarCategory: General   Mar 17th 2017  04:53PM   0

My passion for the study and practice of authentic intimacy and sexual expression is no secret. I believe erotic energy is life force energy, and that sexual connection is a blessed, celebratory experience, with power to heal and transform that should be available to all who need it. Obviously that's not the world we live in, though God knows I'm doing my part to make it happen. (Meet me halfway here, people! I'm ju

Schedule UpdateCategory: General   Jan 23rd 2017  08:56AM   0

For most of the past 6.5 years I've worked many evenings and weekends. Because my style of companionship is a true dating experience, most clients became regulars, for weekly or monthly dinner dates and weekend trips.

Once AroundCategory: General   Nov 23rd 2016  03:58PM   0

When I was 18, thirty odd years ago, I worked at one of the first Gentlemen's Clubs in Texas (Sugar's, in Austin). Our DJ's ex-wife was a retired stripper who one night stopped by the club for a visit. He put her on stage for old time's sake...to show off, I think, rightly assuming her moves would impress us.

Sex Worker Therapy GroupCategory: General   Oct 18th 2016  09:39AM   0

Using my blog to recommend someone else's business service is out of character for me, but I'm making an exception for a cause I believe in championed by a woman I trust and respect. 

Morgan Susan Taylor is an Austin sex therapist with a new Process Therapy Group for Sex Workers (open to sex educators and anyone working in the sex industry). It was described to me like this:

Time + Emotional Labor = Pay MeCategory: General   Jul 19th 2016  03:14PM   0

My rates are based on time spent, not activities undertaken. I've written about that ad nauseam and won't drone on again here. What I do feel needs to be reiterated is that time passes continuously, every minute of every day, and not just during in-person meet-ups.

Surgical SagaCategory: General   Jun 8th 2016  08:29AM   0

I was born with a decent looking nose. It was my dad's, and, though my mom's is prettier, I had no real complaints until my teens, at which time the dictates of conventional standards of beauty kicked in.

Open LetterCategory: General   Jun 5th 2016  08:07AM   0

To the wife:

Your husband loves you more than you know

or

he thought he did when he married you, but years later realized he was wrong

either because

he fell in (true, genuine) love with someone else during your marriage

or

Penis ThingsCategory: General   Mar 30th 2016  07:00AM   0

When I was 20 I met the man I consider to be the love of my life (thus far). His bedroom eyes were a rare shade of green, his quads Olympic gymnast-worthy, and his penis one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. He's hugely successful, fabulously wealthy, and married to a woman who probably hasn't sucked a cock since the 70s. (She doesn't know what she's missing.)

Polite ConversationCategory: General   Feb 15th 2016  12:13PM   0

I recently had an email exchange with a colleague that I found both disturbing and amusing. Disturbing in that she seemed to think I needed to be schooled on the realities of this type of work and amusing because the type of work she does isn't at all what I do, despite the outward resemblance.

The Price of LongingCategory: General   Jan 18th 2016  10:18AM   0

I don't have much of a personal romantic life. And by "much" I mean any. It's something I've learned to live with, although it's not something I will (or should) ever get used to. It is what it is. It's also one of the main reasons for my not-too-distant future retirement.

I lack romantic intimacy because I don't pursue it. I don't pursue it is because I can't if I'm to keep my sanity as a companion.

The Price of PrettyCategory: General   Jan 5th 2016  10:52AM   0

I started laser treatments for sun damage in 2011. I had it everywhere: face, neck, chest, arms, legs, back, feet, and hands. Only my butt, belly, and breasts were spared in my reckless, west coast, water skiing, beach going, sun worshipping youth. I've lasered most of my body twice over, and face and chest numerous times. I'm still not done, nowhere near, in fact.

Same Story; Different SettingCategory: General   Nov 7th 2015  12:20PM   0

I read recently in the Atlantic about the NY Feds sending a message to Wall Street in a closed door meeting: "Clean up your act." Seemed like a fair message. Also wholly ineffective without a plan of action to back it up.
