  • DINKs: Double Income, No Kids

    "First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes The Baby In The Baby Carriage." Many of us have sung this little song as children and come to accept this as just basic common sense of how life is supposed to be. But is it really? Isn't having children a choice? Is having children really a choice if it's expected of you? That doesn't seem like a fair description of the word choice.

  • The Giving Pirates

    A few months back, while on a road trip with a very dear friend, we started to talk about starting up a pirate performance troupe. It was an excuse to dress up, do some fun shows and...well, be entertaining pirates.

  • ISTA Conference of Sexuality & Consciousness: Exploring the Wild & Sacred

    Seminars on sex as healing, as transcendent joy, as an act of magic, as a way of communing intimately with the Earth, in film, therapy and pleasured practice highlighted the recent 11th annual Conference of Sexuality and Consciousness, presented by the International School of Temple Arts and held in the New Age colony of Sedona and in Camp Verde, AZ.

    What happens when your dream doesn’t run along side your lover’s?

  • Gink Manifesto: Green Inclined, No Kids

    There’s a persistent conviction in our culture that if your biosuit includes a uterus, you should use it.

  • Wooden Dildos: Nob Essence Pioneers Eco-Friendly Material for Sex Toys.

    Let’s face it—sex toys are easy to make fun of—the ubiquitous rabbit vibrators, the beige plastic “personal massager” shaped like a torpedo—and let’s not even talk about male masturbators. These devices don’t exactly make people think of the Four Seasons or the Russian Tea Room. So where’s the actual sexiness in the toy industry? Certainly not in the gaping maw of a “realistic” love glove.

  • The Green Project: Herbs for Sex

    Long before the days of Viagra, vibrators, and streaming porn videos, we humans pursued new and better ways to heighten our sexual pleasure through every imaginable means. From dildos made of animal hides to dildos shaped like animals—no stone, nut or rock was left unturned by our fore-mothers and –fathers.

  • The Green Project: Being a Slick Consumer

    Understanding what makes a good sexual lubricant can be a slippery business. After all, unless you’re buying one of the few all natural, organic products that are available, the list of ingredients reads more like the supply catalog for a chemistry class than a recipe for a hot night.

  • From Birth Control to Earth Control?

    What effects do our different methods of birth control have on the environment?

  • The Green Project: Glass Evolution—A Conversation with Xhale Glass

    Yes, silicone may be great—but is it really green?

  • How Green Is My Sex Life?
