My latest interview for +ELLE is about a woman who's finally having the best sex of her life after getting divorced at age 55! I can safely say I was inspired by her. Thanks to +Joan Price for posting my call for interviewees on her Facebook page. Speaking of which: I am looking for more women to anonymously interview about their sex lives. Is that you or someone you know? Email me at ellesexstories at gmail dot com and tell me a little about yourself. Thank you! #aging   #divorce   #orgasms   #multipleorgasms   #sex   #sexuality   #elle

I wrote about my #socialmedia   #anxiety  for +Ravishly. Whether you love or hate social media or are somewhere in between, I hope you'll check it out. Ravishly is one of my favorite sites and I'm honored to have my second piece for them up!
I used to be the kind of person whose every thought was fodder for Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. No matter how mundane, morbid, ridiculous, or inconsequential, I shared it. You might even say that sharing it was part and parcel of experiencing it.

My open marriage airplane travel erotica story "Flying Solo" is part of the book I'm most proud to have edited, Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, and I posted the whole thing on my blog. If you are interested in a sexy story, check it out! If you want to have my immense thanks, take a moment to write a review (can be a sentence or as long as you want) on Amazon to help my little book get seen by new readers.

I've been reading romance since my teens, and wrote about why I'm so excited about Culver City, California romance bookstore The Ripped Bodice. I'm cutting back on travel this year but would love to get back to Southern California so I can visit the store. More at Lady Smut. #romance   #books   #bookstore   #therippedbodice  
by Rachel Kramer Bussel I’m not sure how I first discovered romance, but I distinctly remember being a pre-teen and teenager devouring first Danielle Steel and Judith Krantz novels, then the likes …

I try to eat healthily, but it's often hard to do when things like pizza are easy and cheap. Enter Iconic Hand Rolls, where sushi lovers don't have to break the bank or wait for their meal. I was already excited about the concept of this place, since I love hand rolls (also: I have been known to eat nori plain, cause I love it). They make hand rolls using white or brown rice (same price) and each one is a good size; I'd say 2 make a perfect meal, though one plus a side is often filling, depending on what meal you're there for. All of the rolls I've had are very good; I especially like the scallops, spicy tuna and salmon, and eggplant. But to me it's the sides that take Iconic Hand Rolls from a decent to an awesome place to eat. Their kale salad is simple but delicious, and their cauliflower has made me see a vegetable I was iffy about as something I'd eat any time. I often get one roll and a side of kale salad and cauliflower. They also offer soy sauce and a soy sauce/wasabi combo on the table, for those who like their food a bit on the spicy side. They are quick, cheap, healthy and, best of all, delicious. Also, open pretty late. Definitely worth checking out if you are a fan of sushi.
