SFist: How does it feel to be the representative cookie of the Castro?
Penis Macaroon: It feels great. I'm not the only penis you see walking around here, which is nice. I feel like everyone accepts me for who I am. No one is asking me to "put it back in my pants", for example. No one is covering their kids' eyes when they walk by. I feel totally supported by the community and that's really all I can ask for.

Possibly a mother and daughter -- so many anatomical similarities and --fascinatingly! - almost identical feet. Pictures speak in a silent language but I wish this one could speak and tell me the whole story of these women's lives.
Our usual madcap roundup of sex stories in the news, plus we aired a fabulous interview with LGBT and other non-traditional families advocate, Diana Adams, and talked about why the laws should change to reflect the realities of family relationships today.

My advice: if you are concerned about poor muscle tone in your vagina, speak to a physician. There are safe remedies to the problem, and you won't have to dance the flamenco to get them.

Hard to imagine the kind of terror such ads instilled in women, and how it further shored up inhibitions and fears about their vaginas. On tonight's show, I'll talk a little about how the instilled social anxiety about vaginas --and some of the products sold to them -- has actually raised women's risk of infections and diseases.
Do they still sell Modess? Anyway, ca. late 1950s-1960s, someone came up with the bright idea of boldly advertising Modess sanitary napkins without actually saying what they are. Because. You know. Because!
Even when they put an obviously symbolic V in the ad, with a fetishistic model of menstruation wearing an obviously symbolic V-neck dress that melts into the crotch of the V, which is just so weird I don't know what it means, they still won't admit it's a napkin.
Welcome back, everyone. Yes, I've been randomly blogging throughout my so-called hiatus, as the whim suited, and that's how it's going to keep looking around here until I finish volume 2 of The Truth About Sex. The new volume is all about sex and OTHER people! (The first volume was "Sex and the Self," and focused primarily on masturbation, orgasm, and the basics of sexual ethics and communication.) I've got a solid month of hard work ahead to complete it for my self-imposed August deadline. So you may see more thought-laden ramblings and blurts and news links fly up as I'm working book ideas through my mind. But, of course, there will always be lovely nudes and merry sexy people to keep things festive and chill. Kind of like an icy mojito on a hot July Day....
Hope you all had a rockin' sockin' fourth. We blew up some fireworks and feasted on a good old-fashioned All American BBW. I mean, BBQ. *drum roll*
OK, then. Starting off with some lovely people who once worked at an Old West gambling saloon, ca. 1920s. This advertising postcard showed customers far and wide what comforts they could hope to find inside this happy little hacienda. And after the whiskey and stage show (and it looks like there was a swimming spectacle too, where one could see the curvy girls in OMG wet bathing suits, one may safely surmise that, for a price, these cheery ladies were happy to help you get out of your dusty boots and into something wet in the boudoirs upstairs.
