Happy New Year’s Eve! Hope everyone has awesome plans for ringing in the New Year. I’ll be at Echostage dancing to Krewella, or possibly at home on my couch. Either way it will be awesome.
To help me achieve my goal of 110 lbs, I re-joined Gold’s Gym last night because it’s closer to home than my gym at work, has better machines, and I feel more comfortable being high there. Also the people watching is excellent. Speaking of: The ‘Gym Wildlife’ Parody Trolls Everyone Who’s Ever Set Foot In A Gym. Thanks to Jaclyn Boudreau for that.

Here’s what I’ve been reading:
“With 2015 coming to a close, it’s as good a time as any to revisit some of the more useful things the scientific process has revealed about sex in the last 12 months. Researchers certainly didn’t disappoint: Among other things, published studies taught us what “squirting” really is, debunked the idea that porn is “addictive,” and showed us that kissing isn’t nearly as common as everyone thinks. Below, I’ve compiled the 10 most interesting things we learned about the science of sex this past year.”
“The challenge of 2016 and beyond is to make an honest stab at intimacy in whatever form it might come, to treat each other more gently and to prioritize what makes us feel complete rather than what makes us sound cool. Of course we’ll still mess around and bonk strangers and be reckless with our nude pics, but the scales have fallen from our eyes, and our expectations of what casual sex can and can’t yield have been adjusted accordingly. Thank god we learned our lessons last year.”
“It’s as if the media discovered this year that sex workers will respond online to inappropriate or disrespectful media portrayals of themselves.” How sex work dominated the news in 2015 by Mary Emily O’Hara.
“Please stop debating about whether or not I aged well. Unfortunately, it hurts all three of my feelings. My body hasn’t aged as well as I have. Blow us.
“Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they’re the temporary happy by-products of time and/or DNA. Don’t hold your breath for either.”
