Top 10 New Year's Resolutions I'm NOT Making

It's about that time.... New Year's Resolution time! I hate this time of year. There's too much pressure. If you want to do better for yourself, fine, go for it... (you don't have to wait for January 1st, but okay, fine). But don't give me the guilt trip for not jumping on the band wagon.

A few years ago I did try to make and keep some resolutions. Guess how that turned out?

#MySexPositivity Interview

I was interviewed by Condom Monologues for their #MySexPositivity interview series!  
http://condommonologues.com/mysexpositivity-abby-rose-dalto/
For this sex positive parent, kinky sexuality does not automatically make you progressive….and feminism is not mutually exclusive from the sex positive movement. Part of her sex positivity is turning the term "slut" inside out from its negative accusations into an armor of choice.

In defense of SantaCon NYC 2013

So I survived a very extra snowy SantaCon 2013 in New York City! I just wanted to comment about this event because in the weeks beforehand, I heard and read a lot of criticism and I feel like weighing in.

For those who don't know what it is, SantaCon is a "non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Santa Claus convention that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason." Translation: it's a bar crawl (they say it's not a bar crawl, but in the purest sense, it is) that raises money for charity.
