Sex Ed and the four-year-old

One summer evening, I piled the kids into the car for a pre-bed ice cream run. As we're waiting in an impossibly long drive thru line, my 4 year old pipes up from the backseat, "Mommy, turn this music down. I need to talk about things."

I cooperate and turn the radio off, asking what she wants to talk about.

"Let's talk about babies."

Eavesdropping: one of the many joys of city living

Our condo faces onto a courtyard, and when the windows are open there's definitely a little Melrose Place action that happens. We hear neighbors coming and going, having sex, spanking each other, etc. It's always entertaining.

We can also hear the callbox at the front gate. Monday night, this is what Dre and I heard, as we sat on the couch staring each other silently with wide eyes that said, "Don't start laughing! They'll hear you!"

When will breastfeeding stop interfering with my sex life?

I have always enjoyed a really great sex life with my husband — pretty much right up until the birth of our daughter in August. After she was born, it took a while to get back into the swing of things. The problem now is that it hurts every time we try to have sex. I talked to my midwife about it and she said that it is going to hurt more than normal because I'm breastfeeding her. I do have an IUD but she assured me that it wasn't the problem and once I stop breastfeeding, it will go back to "normal."

How I support my family as a sex worker

For all intents and purposes I have the perfect suburban mommy resume. With one enormous exception. I keep a huge secret from my family, neighbors, and friends. After a long day of story time at the library, playing with moon sand, and finger painting… I go to work. I don't have a typical mom job. Not by a long shot. I'm an escort.
