My Inner Catholic Girl: Part 1

Posted by on May 2, 2018

I’ve finally figured out that locking my Inner Catholic Girl into some dark, confessional-like corner of my psyche doesn’t work. She eventually finds her way out, rips the plug out of my laptop and hides the charging cord. So as I move forward with the re-publication of my erotic memoir, I’ve decided that this time I’m going to bring her along for the ride. Last weekend, I took her here. An abbey of  Benedictine Catholic nuns.  Holy women. Sisters.   The spiritual seeker in me has always been intrigued whenever I drove by and saw their sign in the no man’s land between Fort...

Sexy Magazine

Posted by on Apr 30, 2018

I was at Esalen for a writer’s conference a few years ago and saw Pam Houston, one of my favorite writers, walking through the organic gardens wearing a Bad Feminist T-shirt. I loved her even more.  For years I’ve felt like a Bad Feminist because I really love this magazine:   My husband ordered it years ago to, “you know,  help us have a sexy marriage”.  I have to admit, my Try To Be A Good Feminist’s feathers got ruffled for about ten seconds before I realized he was walking my talk. I summoned Ms. Blog Me Sexy to keep step and suggested that we refrain from ripping off the privacy...

My Literary Artist and my Healing Artist are having a tug of war.  In the middle of my bed.  At 2 am. This is the antithesis of sexy insomnia.   My Literary Artist has scheduled an afternoon meeting with a website designer to brush the dust off this website and initiate the process of getting my memoir re-published. My Healing Artist, who has plans to get a massage and soak in hot springs, isn’t interested. Literary Artist: We are going! We have a super sexy book that needs to get back out in the world.  Healing Artist: We’ are canceling! It’s been so great to unplug and not have you...

Sexy Excerpts: Night School

Posted by on Mar 12, 2018

When I was growing up there was no YA genre so I was left to devour my mom’s romance novels and my dad’s spy thrillers.  The story line didn’t really matter.  I was after the sex scenes. They rarely delivered. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered the erotica genre in my late twenties. But to this day I am absolutely thrilled when I find a well- written, sexy, sex scene. Check out this one from the Jack Reacher novel, Night School: They went to her bedroom, where she climbed on top. She rode him like a cowgirl, but facing him again, hips forward, shoulders...

The G-word

Posted by on Jun 2, 2017

This post is sexy in that hook in deeply, craniosacral therapy kind of way.  I wrote it for my family for our first Father’s Day without my dad.  He’s not here anymore but he is certainly not gone~   My craniosacral teacher used the G-word today. Until now, Thomas and all my other craniosacral teachers, have used spiritually neutral terms like potency, source, life force and energy to describe the realm of healing we are accessing with this light touch form of therapy. But it’s day one of a four-day training, the third one I have taken with a group of five students learning under...
