Color Me Beautiful

About three weeks ago I was musing in my weekly update about wanting to write a post on tats, but I realized very quickly that I knew next to nothing about them, other than liking them. As usual when I don’t know much about a topic I ask for volunteers. To my shock, immediately after the post uploaded I received two emails – one from Feliz Faber an author and also…

5th Ugly Covers Competition

You asked for it. You pleaded for it! You begged me for the 5th Ugly Covers Competition. So where the heck are the darned book covers? I received a paltry few and since then … nothing. If you don’t send me those ugly-ass covers there will NOT be a competition. Remember, they should be ugly, not just funky! To remind you, I am linking the covers that made the list…

“We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” ~ Immanuel Kant

Guess what I’m talking about today. 🙂 Brilliant guess. Animals, more specifically, pets as found in m/m books. (Thanks to the lovely Kris for letting me expand on her theme.) Some people love books that have animals in them (or on them), others fear that it will end badly for the pet and dislike reading about animals who are hurt or die. I don’t either. No Marley and Me for…

Condoms, Condoms, who has the condoms

Another post about condoms. Sheesh, we have a one track mind here. But I had my idea before Leslie posted, I’m just slow. No penises involved in my post. No penises in condoms you say shocked? What’s the point then? It was something Wave said in one of her “coming up this week” posts. She said “Always use a condom, even if you’re not having sex.” and I thought “Hmmm. Interesting…

The winner of the gold medal is ….

In honour of the end of the Olympics held here in Canada, I thought I’d give out medals this round to our illustrious winners. Once again we had dynamic round of voting in the Ugly Covers Competition IV. The voting was fairly consistent with three books taking the majority of the votes with only one other with a significant number of votes.

‘Tis the Season of Giving

Advisory: Except for the recipes, many of the links in this article are NSFW so be cautious when clicking. It’s that time of year. The shopping panic begins. What do you get everyone? Where do you find the perfect gift for the perfect price? It never ends. The stress can lead to the consumption of copious quantities of spiked eggnog and shortbread cookies as the mental breakdown inches ever closer. But you can…

Finding the Female G Spot

Much has been written about the female G spot which supposedly triggers multiple orgasms in women. But … do women really know where it is? I searched in vain for mine last evening after reading this post from Batboy It’s A Jungle In There: A Tribute To Straight Men which had me giggling uncontrollably. I was either looking in the wrong place or I don’t have one of those G…
