You know, rather than just looking at your photo and sending: Hi. Or. hello Or. Being a guy and telling me all about what sort of interests they have in kink and D/s when I’m a lesbian and it says so in my profile. You could have saved us both time by looking at the …

Naked People Make Me Fall Asleep

Why the Asexual Is Thinking About You Naked Not long ago I met a photographer who processes photography in old-timey ways—daguerrotypes, rather than Polaroids.

Sub Journal 010: Perversion and Normality
