How a sex-positive approach to sex education in religious communities can prevent trauma in young women.

Welcome, reader! This piece has been in progress since April 2020 and I am proud to announce its publication. Please join me in taking a rough, analytical look at how the lack of sex education in Protestant Christian churches destroys young women. And how we can stop it.

Honesty is such a bitch. Honestly.

I spent so much of my university years wondering how to be as honest as other people, especially in relationships. How was Rami so blanatly honest with her partner? Was that the key to staying together for so long? Shit, if true honesty was…

A Poem.

Dear January

Dear January
The month of my birthday
The month moves slow
As if my limbs drag through a swamp
And oh, I feel desperately cramped
My bones achingly grow
Succumbing to the grasp of progress
Fuck no, I never expected any less
Than to be left
Than to be lonely
At the turn of a quarter…


A Short Story.

The clock hands at midnight struck my mind like a gentle, sensible blow, a soft reminder to lay down for the night. Such things as time may be a man-made construct; yet, our biorhythms follow it closely, understanding the turn from day to night. In truth, night…
