Bawdy Storytelling

Can Sex Parties empower you to heal your lifelong insecurities? Bonobo Network co-producer Misha Bonaventura is invited to an intimate acid-induced birthday experience and as she looks around at the beautiful bodies at this drug-fueled orgy, she sets an intention; Does she want to make love to her friends and compatriots tonight, or does she want to make love to time, and to the meaning of life? As she dances and rejoices in the sights and the orgasms of the luminaries around her, she suddenly finds herself singled out by the cosmos - and everyone else notices it, too. #Insecure #Excluded #YouBelong


Song: ‘Disco Tits’ (Tove Lo)

Quake is gone.

Quake was Sainted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence this past week, so if you need some extra love or luck, you’ve got a Saint on your side! I am so proud and happy that this honor has been bestowed on him; It makes his death a tiny bit easier.

If you wanna help out with Quake’s End of Life/final Veterinary expenses, the GoFundMe is at

He was the Love of my Life, and I’ll never get over this loss.

P.S. Thank you for loving Quake, too. <3
