His first kids’ book on reproduction, called WHAT MAKES A BABY (for preschoolers through 2nd-graders), combines inclusive language, helpful descriptions, and bright, bold and beautiful illustrations by Fiona Smyth (that get us all nostalgic for “Free to Be You and Me“) […]

Hot Biblical Erotica: Song of Solomon

The Old Testament is one racy tome, full of love, lust, rape, incest, murder, and — perhaps worst of all — masturbation (known then as Onanism).  If you can make it through all the repetitive and contradictory proscriptions, unscientific explanations, and general millennia-old nonsense, you’ll be rewarded a little more than midway through with the Song […]

In 1987, when The Rocky Horror Picture Show was just a pre-teen, I was a 15-year-old virgin — both in the RHPS sense of the word (i.e. having never seen the cult classic) and literally (i.e. having never done the deed).
