As you’ve likely noticed over the last year, the topics now venture well beyond the political, which will always be a central theme, because it’s in my bones due to the time in which I grew up. Even my new book, though it’s not political, deals with the politics of sex. The interaction between men and women and how we navigate the modern world of equality, which includes everything from our relationships to politics, from the web to the workplace, to understanding sexual harassment, as well as the psychology of cheating. Over at Huffington Post you can check out the post that has over 9.8k Facebook shares, which gives you a glimpse of my new book (also translated into Spanish at El HuffPost). This space has always been my creative laboratory, going back to 1996 when I started providing content on the web. This latest incarnation honors the path I now find myself navigating. We’ll just have to see where we go from here.

“I was a pioneer in the online sex and dating worlds, going back to the 1990s. I’ve seen victimization and have written about it in my books, some of which was highlighted in the Showtime documentary Sexy Baby. I advised women on relationships for years, talked to men about pornography, as well as women in the adult industry. In a country that refuses to accept that religion’s role and traditional relationships have shifted dramatically, blame for young women’s choices has many roots.”Taylor Marsh on Fifty Shades of Grey
