This is how Christmas makes my body feel

December 15, 2017

  So, where to begin… Christmas! Holidays! Christmas. Holidays. Sigh. Every year, I forget how mental the holidays can be. Everyone is sick or just getting sick or just getting over being sick.

Your erotic body

June 13, 2017

  What happened to you when you read those 3 words? Your. Erotic. Body. Did you feel intrigued? Curious? Jealous? Did you roll your eyes and think, fer kerist sake’s, Sophie, enough with the freakin’ body stuff… Did you feel your body shut down? Resist? Turn off? Did you feel yearning? Sadness?

Here’s what happens in my basement…

March 1, 2016

Sometimes it’s during the day. Usually it’s at night. And I do it when I need to. Needing to feels like there’s something in my body that needs to be expressed. Allowed. Just felt.

My tools for keeping my sexy alive and happy

September 10, 2015
