Censorship no excuse for misogyny

Never let it be said I don’t know my place. By my sheer misfortune of being born with a vagina, I know I should just shut the hell up and not post this hysterical, bitchy rant about Jim Jefferies and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. I should just take Jefferies misogynist jokes on the chin – like a nice submissive Eve.

But fuck you, Jim Jefferies and MICF. I’m not Eve, and you just started a fight you won’t win.

In Bed With...Eden Summers

Welcome back to the boudoir. The sultry atmosphere is set for a cosy pillow chat with one of my favourite people and authors who has just released a new book and has a fab freebie on offer. Snuggle up because today we are in bed with Eden Summers, author of A Shot of Sin.
Are you comfy, Hun? I'll go easy on you, I promise. So tell us, what’s the hardest thing about writing a sexual relationship into a story?

Cycles and returns

I had the very great privilege to attend the closing Chiron Centre Conference a couple of weekends ago. Chiron Centre? What the?

Trust me. It’s special. This is why.

Among the very many things I’ve studied in my life, one of the more left field subjects is astrology. Not the ‘should I get out of bed today?’ daily stars kind, but a much deeper system based on human psychology and development. Are you smirking? ‘Course you are.

Farewell 2015

For some 2014 has been difficult - crappy even. Talking to those who have done it tough makes me feel like I dodged a bullet this year. Maybe I got time off for good behaviour. I had a few crappy years in a row, so maybe this year was my turn off the fortune-of-hell-wheel. Or maybe I just got lucky.
