Why I’m Not Eating Tina Fey’s Privilege Cake

I’ve wanted to write this for a week now, but I’m lazy af and have had other shit to do, like read various comments sections under several well-meaning, but seriously blinkered, Facebook articles and scream into my pillow. Another white woman screaming into inanimate objects this past week has been...

Cultivating Pussy Pearls

Today, a little late to the party, I learned about a new sex trend, which involves sticking dissolvable capsules filled with glitter, and flavoured lubricant, into your vaginal cavity.

On the 18th of May, 2017 Chris Cornell hanged himself in his hotel room and on the 21st of July, his good friend, and fellow stellar vocalist, Chester Bennington did the same on what would have been Chris’s 53rd birthday. Fuck. The thing about suicide is that it often defies...

My Bowie Cleanse

Last year, upon learning of David Bowie’s death, I put myself on a “Bowie Cleanse” and I can’t recommend it enough. What was meant to be four weeks of reintroducing myself to his earlier music turned into nearly six months of reading, listening, watching and listening some more to Bowie...

George Michael, Faith and Feminism

George Michael was a mess. And how liberating that was for the rest of us, who were also messy, to see someone so handsome, talented and successful also unable to keep their shit together. This has always been one of the reasons I loved the man. His inability to remain...

Mean Mugging

On Wednesday evening Steve and I arrived in Bangkok to begin the holiday I’ve been waiting eight long months for. Yeah, I can hear you now, ‘but you’ve been to Bali like five months this year.’ So? That’s work. And ask Clare, I cry a lot and it is not...
