Welcome back (or for the first time…)!

Well, I have been on quite the (unplanned) summer hiatus.  I apologize for my absence, and I look forward to being back with more posts a couple times a week from here on in.

So what’s gotten me back writing today?  That would be the quote from Huffington Post, it would.  Pretty exciting, eh?  Huff Po has an article today called “Sex Toys for Tweens” where they quote an old post of mine called Vibratos and Dildos.

And if you’re coming over from Huff Po: Welcome!  If you’re looking for some of people’s favorite posts here, try some of these:

Top Ten Things To Do Before You Have Sex: A list for teenagers

This I Believe (the theoretical basis for everything else on this site)

An open letter to my students, young and old (my sex education students, to be specific)

And you should also go take a look at my other blog, The Belly Project, a photo blog of women’s bellies, along with their age and reproductive history. The goal is to provide a platform for talking about the intersection of sex, body image, and women’s bodies.

I’ll be back next week with a whole slew of posts I started writing this summer but never got around to posting, including everything from a discussion of street art and advertisements in Germany and what steps to take as a parent when you’re worried your teenager is involved in an abusive relationship, so either sign up for my e-mail updates or RSS feed or come back again next week!  Also feel free to comment liberally on every post and e-mail me – with my kids back in school what else do I have to do?  🙂
