Most of us have the exact same first love. Our moms. While there are mothers who aren't loving, nurturing or present, most of us felt loved, protected, and accepted just as we were by our moms. Some are blessed enough to still enjoy that relationship with a living mother. Some aren't.

Shall We #Unslut the World?
There are women who've been slut-shamed who've had the maturity and power to ignore it. To be inspired by the slur, even, and throw it back in people's faces: Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne [Suck it, bitches. it's happening! or, another, more elegant trans...

Austrian-born actress Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler was a goddess on screen... and a techno-geek in her spare time. She first scampered into movies in Germany in 1930, with her nude scenes and simulated orgasm in 1933's Extase (Ecstacy) at age 18 raising controversy.

Is That A Spanking Bench I See Before Me?
I'd never been to a dungeon before.  Figured it would be dark (no), creepy (no), and full of somewhat frightening instruments of torture. All kinds of ways to tie a person up and have your way with him/her. The last part is somewhat true. There are instrume...
