Sex, Smoke and Snow in Denver

Leaning against my car I take another drag of my cigarette. An ‘on-again, off-again’ habit I’d make a point of quitting completely after this vacation. It’s not the taste of the smoke but the actions of the routine that I’m addicted to. Sliding the slender white stick from the pack with my fingers. Holding it…

The Feminist Backlash

Feminism, like most extreme movements, is in the midst of a backlash, in this writer’s not so humble opinion. When did women equate “How are you?” as harassment? Recently I watched the Street HarassmentVideo “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman” where a woman is filmed strolling down the sidewalks of New York…

Your Girlfriend’s Best/Worst Friend

Your girlfriend has that one friend you can’t stand. The one that drinks too much, parties too hard, and is definitely too loud. She’s opinioned about your relationship, yet never has been in a stable one herself. She’s crude, rude, and always asking you to hook her up with your friends. She’s like a frat…

Smells Like Teen Spunk

The party is just starting but my pint of Jack is close to gone. I am going to have a night I won’t remember. They walk in and I know one of them is underage. The two boys look equally young but in Los Angeles age is a factor that is hard to determine. But…

Burning Bridges to Light the Way

I am who I am today because of the mistakes I made yesterday. ― The Prolific Penman When a child sticks a fork in an outlet and gets electrocuted, they learn never to do that again. But what if there is no electricity? What if there are no consequences? Or, what if the child likes the…

Act Two

I slide the key card into the door, wait for the green light to flicker on, press the knob down and forward, opening the hotel suite for my entry. I could get use to this life. IMDB had flown me to where he is filming to play acting lover for the last week of his…

Punch Drunk Sex

“How did last night happen?” I thought out loud as I laid staring up at the popcorn ceiling littered with cobwebs. Memories from the last 12 hours blurred in and out, creating a sketchy time line of events. Everything is crystal clear until we closed out the tab at the bar. From that point it…

The Dichotomy of Drinking in Cities

LUSH: one who becomes intoxicated after a few drinks and flirts with everyone. When I was 21-years-old and living in Connecticut, my boyfriend at the time called me an alcoholic due to my lush weekend warrior status. My best friend and I would shed our nine-to-five personas and catapult caution to the wind by venturing…

The Good Guy

GG and I snuggle on his bed, head on his shoulder, his arm wrapped around me tracing lines on my bare back as we talk about our favorite subject, me. “I bet I’m the only straight guy friend you have that has never tried to fuck you,” he pauses for dramatic effect. “And that weirds…

Back For More

“Let me in.” It is Rebound’s stern voice coming through the door’s intercom. It has been months, close to a year, since I’d last seen him. I press the button and wait as he climbs the stairs of my two-story walk up. Despite having a connection to him I’d stopped seeing him after our second…

Corporal Punishment

Soldier is the epitome of a military man, tall with a rough face and matching hands. He isn’t a pretty boy. He is a man with a dimpled chin, prominent nose, and has that look men have when they’ve seen combat. He has muscles for work not just for show. He is a real life…

Embarrassing Things Girls Never Talk About

My former introverted female roommate gave me a big hug and said, “Thank you for talking to me about this. I’ve never been able to talk about it before.” We were, of course, having a conversation about our vaginas. In spite of feminism, equal rights, and the boom of female sexuality there are still taboo…

The Devil’s Dealings

The Dealer and I have been on and off for the past three years making him my longest relationship to date. Not only is he a great lover but the drugs are an added bonus. He is the bad boy with the good connections. A shady fellow with a light-hearted nature and blinding smile. He’s…

Are You The Annoying Friend?

 If you’ve passed puberty you’ve heard one of your girlfriends, female acquaintances, or frenemies say one of the follow and the urge punch her in the face was so overwhelming even the possibility of jail time wouldn’t deter you. Fuck it. Orange is the New Black, right? “I just cannot put on weight, no matter…
