As I have mentioned before, I have decided to conclude the SINGING SEX series as well as some of the other regular features from the RASPBERRY RIPPLES blog, because my energy levels have been dwindling due to health issues. So that left me in a panic over which songs to make sure I included in […]

While I Was Sleeping #1

Ben said something to me yesterday that helped me a lot. I have felt quite downhearted and Ben took some time out to help me talk through everything that has been on my mind, and as always he came up with some great suggestions to help me deal with this challenging time. When I told […]

Stories

I have lots of stories (around a hundred) in my drafts folder that I wrote during the course of the past year and never published. Either I was too late to join a blogger’s prompt, or I was not fully satisfied with them. But I am hoping to give them more attention. In the meantime, […]

Singing Sex #48

There was no way we could leave old Madz out – she put her name to one of the most terrifying karaoke tracks of all time. She has tried singing about sex numerous times during her marathon career, but with her iconic track “Like A Virgin” yes…she has to claim her rightful place on the […]

How Does Illness Effect Your Sex Life?

Well, perhaps that it is a little silly of me to start this post with a question like that. The truth is, I have no idea about your sex life. I actually was intending to write about my own sex life. Why am I doing this right now, in the middle of my meecrowahvey treatment? […]

Sex Sells #58

This week is our very last post in the Sex Sells series. Over the past year, I have featured over fifty commercials in the SEX SELLS series, some very clever examples of marketing teams using sex to create desire for their products, and some terrifyingly cringe-fest examples. For the most part the classic advertisers were […]
