University Students Studying BLT, Radical Politics, and Social Class

Students at University of Arizona are reading about BLT for class.

BLT in The Miami Herald, Librarians are Awesome

As I’ve been working on the BLT Kickstarter, I’ve been doing some deep searching in Google and Bing/Yahoo. For those just tuning in, BLT was the zine I started before Blue Blood and it is very funny, if you have ever lived in a punk rock group house, gone to goth-industrial clubs,…( Read more )

Have you read the ingredients on your lube?

Have you read the ingredients on your lube?

poison  lube domina dollOver at Pop My Cherry, writer Domina Doll has written an excellent and informative article about reading the ingredients on your lube. It is called Lubes 101 – Harmful Chemicals and Body Burden. I first came across Domina Doll’s writing at AltPorn.Net and then her site when she commented on my Amelia G blog and I have to say I like her style and I like her take on human sexuality.
