Clever clever! This laptop sleeve (yes, really) is called AirMail. Get it? Get it?

Geek lust

Technology turns me on. Which is not to say I’m a gadget geek – far from it. In fact, the most advanced piece of equipment I own is a first generation miniPod my ex-boyfriend gave me. But I do think there’s something inherently sexy about Technology with a capital T – all those big, pulsing brains working and sweating late into the night, over and over, to create objects that are not only useful, but also beautiful. And the objects themselves – sleek, smooth, and often warm and humming. Read more »

...of presenter and material, anyway. I can’t promise you the other kind, although I’m working on it.

Since I had my kids, I’m forever wishing I could write more about kid-having issues in Alt Sex Column, but of course, ASC readers want to hear about fisting and polyamory, -- not so much with the kiddie stuff. Read more »

In college, my Buffy-watching buddies and I used to play the cast-our-friends-as-Buffy-characters game. I'd usually end up as either Faith, the slayer who went to the dark side, or Glory, the evil goddess from Hell. I'm convinced this was partly due to physical resemblance (both are brunettes, and Glory has curls), and partly due to the fact that two of the guys playing the game were former lovers with itty bitty bitter streaks.
