It was only a matter of time, wasn’t it?
I’ve decided to integrate lacigreen.tv with my Tumblr. Tumblr has proven to be a great platform for Sex+; in the 6 weeks since I joined Tumblr, I’ve garnered as much traffic there as I do in 6 months here! I also like the community aspect of Tumblr, it is easier to respond to readers, to share other peoples’ work, and for people to share mine. It seems like an obvious next step. I am currently trying to find a way to:
>host independently (don’t want to rely on tumblr’s shaky hosting)
>not to lose all the posts I’ve put here
>not lose all the resource pages I have here
>while also posting exclusively from my Tumblr account.
I’ve seen some cool integrations and am looking into how to do it successfully. If you’ve done this before and have some time to offer, send me a tweet to exchange contact info and I’ll love ya forever.
Just wanted to post a heads up for the blog followers so you know what’s goin awn!
Take any sort of sexuality course and you will probably learn about the Kinsey Scale. The scale, ranging from 0-6 goes from exclusively heterosexual (0) to exclusively homosexual (6). It looks something like this:
The scale, produced in the 1940s, was pretty radical for its time. Kinsey was one of the first researchers to suggest that sexual orientation is more than simply:

I have a crush on a guy that I don’t know, but am friends with on facebook. I guess he technically isn’t a complete stranger because he is an acquaintance/friend of some of my friends in real life…So my question is, in the age of facebook and friending strangers is it ok to express interest in someone you don’t actually know, and how does one go about it with out it being too awkward? I can’t really judge his accepting my friend request as anything much since he is in a band that is fairly well known and has a lot of friends. On a side note, I have noticed through random news feed posts that he definitely has an interest in meeting someone, so is that an open invitation to introduce myself? Do you think that he might get the impression that I’m weird for having searched him out or that I read what he posts? Honestly I don’t even know how I’d begin.
…but, yknow, you’re talking to one of the biggest internet nerds ever. I don’t think it’s weird to friend people and to socialize online as you would in “real” life. This is the digital age! Embrace it! Love it and cuddle it! I believe it can do a lot of good in our “real” lives. The dating game online and IRL have a lot of overlap. Here are 3 things to consider when you’re approaching a stranger on Facebook:
☹ Your partner watches so much porn that it’s impeding on your sex life
☹ Your friend got a bf and seems to have completely lost their personality
☹ Your partner says embarrassing things in the company of other people
These are just some of the emails I get from people who ask: “how do I talk to them about this?” Every single one of us, at one time or another, will be in a situation where we really need to sit down and talk with someone about something that is very hard to talk about, uncomfortable, sensitive, or otherwise challenging.
Here are 10 tips that have helped me to smooth out tough conversations.
