Hold on. Don't roll your eyes. This is not a self-proclaimed title or one given because I completed a web-based certification course. I was named one of the "Ten Best Online Dating Experts" by a leading dating advice website. Here's a...

Technology To Cultivate Eroticism

(2) Comments | Posted October 14, 2014 | 1:17 PM

I'm single and looking for hot sex. Not exactly unique, and there are apps and websites catering to meet ups for that fulfillment -- if it were only that simple. Unfortunately, I want lasting, long term, monogamous, smoldering, rip off the clothes, buttons flying, can't get enough, lusty and regular...

Before I sat down to write this article I thought about sharing my knowledge on being single and knew I probably qualified. I haven't been in a committed relationship in seven years. Oh I've dated lots, a ridiculous amount actually, but this has been one long stretch of solo. I...

Former Model Down but Not Out in Debut Memoir Hot Cripple

(22) Comments | Posted June 8, 2012 | 4:37 PM

At first glance, you'd think most women probably wouldn't identify with Hogan Gorman, debut author of the memoir Hot Cripple. Gorman is tall, thin, gorgeous and (of course) a former runway and print model-turned actress. Her career was spent jetting around the world strutting her stuff, her closet...

"You should meet my daughter. You're about the same age." I told Omar on class number two of a twelve-week program on brain disorders. The course had a science-based approach but the schooling I received was much different than my expectations.

I arrived late for the initial session. Omar...

Why I Could Still Kill Him

(337) Comments | Posted January 26, 2012 | 6:30 PM

Twelve years ago, during a round of court appearances initiated by my former-spouse (post-divorce to reduce child support), my attorney told me that in all the years of practicing family law he'd never come across a worse father. With that statement he confirmed what I hoped was just my can't-sleep,...
