SEATTLE EVENT: Witches, Sluts, Feminists on November 16, 2017

I'm hosting a discussion in Seattle with Kristen Sollee, the author of Witches, Sluts, Feminists: Conjuring the Sex Positive. I knew from the second I saw the cover of this book that I needed to have it (the cover is basically the seo keywords of my life these days), and then when I contacted Kristen to talk to her about it… it turned out we'd featured her fucking wedding on Offbeat Bride back in the day! Sometimes it feels like Offbeat Bride is like Kevin Bacon for weird married people — you're odd and have planned a wedding, we're probably connected somehow.

Hidden Blessings: Dispatches from the midlife trenches

This weekend I am doing one of the most cliche things I've ever done: I am going to a midlife crisis workshop.
