This stellar article from my dear friend Midori is right in line with the aesthetic I see increasingly expressed by the hundreds of thousands of people who visit this blog regularly. It’s what I call a “Whole Foods attitude” we’re all cultivating about porn, sex toys, and figuring out good ways we can live our lives as sexual citizens of the world. I love it! Here’s a snip:
