electronics and water don’t mix

Though I’ve made efforts to maintain my smartphone-virginity, that may change. I killed my beloved Nokia 3600 Slide worldphone that I’ve had for years. I can’t buy a replacement anymore because they don’t make them. I will likely have to get some sort of damn touchscreen thing. I like my electronics as simple as possible. And I have fingernails. Studying Nokia models as we speak. I still require an unlocked quad-band GSM phone.

facebook vs sex workers (again)

I’m not the only one getting kicked off Facebook. Porn stars are too. Facebook is fine with violence, not with sex. Got it.

real virginity

This essay by a real-life virgin shows how unhealthy an absolute focus on virginity is for a woman. History is full of tales of women who were seduced or raped and then had to turn to prostitution because they had no societal value as an unmarried non-virgin. It would be nice if we were beyond that, but clearly not. There’s nothing wrong with saving good sex for someone you love, but putting your whole value as a woman and human being into a state you’re unlikely to maintain if you live your life is whacked. It doesn’t lead to a better sex life if you’re told how horrible and dirty sex is until that magic day when it isn’t. Human emotions and self-image don’t work that way.

If you know someone who wants to take an abstinence pledge, please show them this article and talk to them about it (if you can). And don’t encourage them to faux-marry their father. Ick.

non-pickup artist

One woman has decided to draw the men who irritate her online. I have no problem with that done a personal level to vent, but then she shares it online (with the men and the world). I think that’s a bit much for the level of offense given. It does make me wonder if an escort completely fed up with hobbyists is going to start doing this? It would not be pretty.

male escorts as therapists

A woman who hired male escorts, lost weight, and felt better about herself throughout it. Female escorts have essentially been saying this for years — how we often end up being therapists. I like that it shows professional companionship can be good for either gender. It’s also a great weight-loss plan.

escort photographers are better

After spending the last couple years purusing boudoir photographers and escort photographers, I’ve come to the conclusion that (good) escort photographers are better. I can think of one boudoir photographer I would like to have a session with. Escort photographers not only understand sexy better, they’re more creative on the whole. They’re more into showcasing the individual woman in front of their camera because of how important it is to that woman to have unique pictures. Plus, when you know the pictures you take are going to be plastered all over the Internet, you probably work a little bit harder to impress random viewers. There are a fair number of good escort photographers scattered over the country, each with a unique style, capable of producing beautiful, individualized photos for every escort in their portfolio. I can’t say the same for boudoir photographers.

  1. Ebay has been my friend when searching for items I liked but were discontinued. Most items I’ve purchased were just as I remembered the old one.

    1. Greg — I have considered ebay and probably will give it a shot if the phone isn’t too expensive (which it shouldn’t be). Bought a simple, limited, temp phone. It’s not “home.” 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday Amanda. You are beautiful on the inside, beautiful on the outside and a great writer. You don’t look a day over 29. I hope you have a wonderful day.

    Sincerely,

  3. Dear Ms. Brooks:
    I was wondering when your books will be published? Also I assume that you are extremely busy because I haven’t heard from you for a while.

    1. Lionel — I have been expending my energy elsewhere. I have blogs to write here, but just haven’t sat down to do it.

      As far as books…my latest one (thumbnail in the sidebar) will hopefully be released before the end of 2014, though it might be pushed into 2015. I never seem to come to a stopping point on it. I may have a surprise book in the interim — it depends on a few things. That’s where a lot of my energy has gone. Further books still have yet to be written!

  4. I met you once in San Francisco. We shared an interest in comfortable beds due to our back issues. I now have a Tempurpedic Choice mattress after using a McRoskey for years. I am now retired, but I
    still view your site now and then. You are an amazing lady, so keep up the great work!

    1. Packard — I remember you! Though I think you misunderstood — I don’t have a bad back, I’m just picky about the type of mattress I like. Still am. 🙂

      Nice to hear from you and thanks!
