I initially learned about sex at the age of seven from reading a book called “A Boy’s Sex Life” written by a Catholic priest.
(waits for laughter to subside. NO SERIOUSLY YOU CAN STOP LAUGHING NOW)
Back in the seventies my little hometown in New Jersey made quite a stir in the Roman Catholic Church [...]
Back in the day an anti challenged me to go into a abortion prevention center crisis pregnancy center to listen to their message. I replied that I was not their audience, which is frightened and desperate young women. But in case you’re curious as to what said frightened desperate young women might hear from those [...]
When I say I don’t watch TV, it occurs to me that I should clarify my position. What I mean is that I do not watch shows on a regular basis. Sports, hell yes. It’s spring so there is baseball (and my Yankees are in first place in the American League East, woo hoo!). In [...]
I learned to read when I was three and was able to read–if not understand–adult books by the time I was four (this trait runs in my family, both my mother and brother were the same). I read voraciously as a child and teenager, but as an adult I don’t do a lot of fiction [...]
The state of California is widely perceived to be a liberal state. However, it is forgotten sometimes that the governor of the state is a Republican despite his previous occupations of pot-smoking bodybuilder and movie action hero. This has come disturbingly to light with two propositions that made it onto next week’s ballots out there—Proposition [...]
For those of you who don’t speak Internet, the title translates into “Oh no, the porn!”

While formatting new stories (because of a miscount and final tweaking on the new site design no ETA on the update, sorry) I came across this story. I won’t include it on the site, but it briefly revived my interest in creating a section of the site that deals with women who regret continuing their [...]
It’s not often that I get taken aback by a guestbook entry, but one that was entered yesterday has, for lack of a better term, flummoxed me. I haven’t deleted it, possibly because the stupidity has stunned me like a club over the head, but at the same time I wanted to immortalize it elsewhere [...]
The recent case of the 13-year-old state ward in Florida who was temporarily blocked from obtaining an abortion as well as a recent post in the guestbook brings up an issue for me that I find personally troubling–the autonomy of teenagers when it comes to choice.
Now I’m not a mother, unless you count my [...]
Every so often I’ll get an e-mail from that most easily offended creature, the Outraged Teen Mother. They follow a very predictable pattern–first they flame me for “killing babies,” then go into a recitation about how their kid (usually very trendily named) is so-and-so months old and is like OMG the best thing EVAR and [...]
