A couple of years ago I needed brain bleach badly after being exposed to a couple of Christian sex toy stores. It wasn't the products, which were the same items you could buy at any standard sex shop. It was the creepy framing by Christian bloggers. Such as: it's a wife's duty to "bless" her husband with an orgasm, even when she doesn't feel like it, so it's very handy to have this [totally vulgar item] for those "off days" like when you're on your period. I guess it was the combination of radical conservative biblical ideas about male dominance/female submission/servitude mixed with the use of sex toys that gave me the willies.

I think a former Catholic priest turned sex counselor should be able to do a better job.

Hooray, 5.5° warmer! Beachfront property, here I come!

(Kansas used to be part of the vast inland sea, you see. I've always loved mosasaurs.)
