July 12, 2012


I pulled my back out on my date with the A-Hole from Bridesmaids. You know, the Jon Hamm character? A perfect storm of vanity and self-consciousness converged on a bench, when I tried to make my bare legs (100 percent humidity had me in shorts) look their best. I alternated between crossing them (bad for […]

June 7, 2012


After not only surviving–but enjoying–a family vacation last weekend, I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of  family vacation survival tips since… a) lists are good and b) since most of us will be venturing off into the wild world of 24/7 bonding time with a bunch of screaming maniacs […]

G-Spot: How To Have Orgasms At 83! (Or So They’d Like Us To Think)

April 30, 2012


With Miri’s post last week about her patchouli-wearing plumber’s advice (i.e., “Don’t share your snake with your neighbors”), my mind immediately started thinking about body parts.

Do you remember the first time a boy noticed your breasts? I was probably about 10. Playing basketball with a boy from up the street. He turned to me and stared at my shirt. “Shouldn’t you put on a bra or something?” he said. I looked down at the budding nothings and chalked it up […]

February 22, 2012


Guest Post by Jessica Sherman I want to share my recent liberation.  I did not shed 20 pounds of flab, wean my young child, start a new career or leave my husband. I gave up our car. Okay, I admit I live in a borough of NYC where a car is not a must have […]

This is the story about my friend being brought to her knees. Amy was invincible and then she wasn’t. She went to bed on a Monday night four years ago and woke the next day, at 7:30 a.m., with a migraine. She’d never had one before and she hasn’t been without one since. One long […]

Resolution Update: Can We Quit Yet?

February 1, 2012
