lessons in sexual technique from a professional

This story is currently under review and revision to ensure use of respectful terminology and clear statement of goals: “Become a world-class lover. Own yourself. Own your power.” – Emily Marie Williams My research concerning quality sexual technique leads me interesting places, most of which I will not reveal. On this website, I’ve previously discussed […]

curvilinear optimism

Consider the following exponential growth curve: This shows how the possible consequences of a decision do not just vary over time; the magnitude of that variance itself increases with time. For example, suppose you do something reckless like join the circus, start a business, or express love. You not only do not know the short- […]

an allegory of affection from a Hindu goddess

I experienced the following dream: Walking through wilderness, I came upon a female tiger. She considered me, and I considered her—I calculated my next move through my fear, she simply calculated.
