And I thought Larry Flynt running for governor of my fair native state was cool. Adult supermodel and queen of big-boobie naked jumping jacks Mary Carey is in the running, and with many, er, interesting platforms (and not just of the spike-heeled variety). Along with taxing breast implants, making lap dances tax deductible and a…

Wow, I’ve been getting oodles of mail lately — yay! I went to a wedding this weekend here in town, where one of my oldest friends married her butch girlfriend of many years. After a week of dealing with that porn industry woman angrily criticizing my upcoming book based on its being geared toward female…

Alison Tyler and Sex Ed

It’s been a while, and you’d think that I’ve been busy, and while I have, sitting at the computer writing on deadline doesn’t really feel like I’ve been doing much of anything.
