“My main issue is that I’m struggling terribly with trying to reconnect to my sexual side in a healthy way and generally see sex and my overwhelming desire for it in a good way and don’t know what to do about this. I have a history of sexual abuse in childhood by my cousin and rape in adulthood.”

I ran across this video via our Facebook fan page after Stephanie and Vijay sent me a wedding photo from their recent nuptials on June 21. Someone found the video and I couldn’t help smiling throughout the whole thing.

This is me, only…slightly glow-y. My eyes are brighter, my teeth whiter, my face smoother. This is a common technique professional photographers charge an arm and a leg for, but you can do the same thing with your selfies with Beauty Box, an free online app that allows you to take pictures, or upload your old ones and enhance them with a variety of filters.

EarthJeff: Swirling on Planet Earth Part 11 – The “three finger,…

Now that I am becoming SO experienced in relationship matters (quit rolling your eyes, that was said “tongue-in-cheek”)…. I want to share my rule that I call the “three fingers, three second” rule that applies for anyone involved in a relationship. Then I want everyone to chime in with their implementation of this rule.

Iyanla Vanzant: “There is no reason to continue to have children…

It looks like Iyanla Vanzant is a fan of No Wedding No Womb. There’s just so much truth in what she’s saying, and it echos so much of what we teach, preach and nag about on this space. Some folks are getting real defensive about what Miss Vanzant has to say, because hit dogs holler and black folks especially don’t like to be told that their poop stinks.

Orange is the New Black: Are You Watching the New “It”…

My news feed has been going crazy lately and I’m no dummy, how many times must I see “Orange is the New Black” before I caved in and watched. I know the independent television series providers are capable of producing quality shows so I had faith in the great reviews I’ve read so far. I didn’t read any reviews, per say, rather I planted myself on my couch and hit the Netflix. And boy, oh, boy am I happy I did……..

How Can Black Women Thrive in a Racist Society?…

I read some articles over the weekend that left me shocked, angry, and speechless. The first was about a high school principal accused of racist verbal attacks against two black teachers. She allegedly compared their looks to gorillas and scoffed at big floppy lips and nappy hair. As horrible as that seems, that’s not the worst of the accusations. Both teachers feel that their poor evaluations were racially motivated.
