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.

Baltimore Book Festival talk on relationships and cheating, and how to keep it from happening to you.

Baltimore Book Festival talk on relationships, sex and the psychology of cheating.

“Women are caught between feminism and the pornification of America, and men are, too. I spent my youth squatting on a pedestal. I’ve been a Relationship Consultant and one of the first editors online writing about sex and politics during the Monica Lewinsky craziness, so I know what women want, and how men think. Too many experts are giving old fashion advice that no longer applies. From dating and sex, to office romance, and sexual harassment, I know the language of relationships, including the psychology of cheating. I learned the truth in the trenches.” – Taylor Marsh
