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…

Miss Moxie (Part 1)

I need to have her. She is perfect. Everything I want and wanted to be. Cool, short black hair in pigtails, covered in tattoos for as far as the eye could see, and big, mischievous green eyes. I float towards her like a gravitational pull. She is the sun I will revolve around. “Hey.” “Hey.”…

The Rebound

He is on a mission. He needs to forget about his girlfriend, correction, ex-girlfriend. To forget about his troubles with the distraction of whiskey and women. And he is failing miserably. “Fuck it!
