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 inside our most intimate space, where we lie down every night. Over at Huffington Post you can check out the post that has over 9.5k Facebook shares, which gives you a glimpse of my new book (also translated into Spanish at El HuffPost). It’s what I’ll be talking about at the Baltimore Book Festival in September. This site has always been my creative laboratory and this latest incarnation honors the path I now find myself navigating. We’ll just have to see where we go from here.

“Women are caught between feminism and the pornification of America, and men are, too. I spent my youth squatting on a pedestal, the beauty queen who couldn’t get laid. I’ve been a Relationship Consultant, phone sex diva, mistress, been fought over, lived with hunks who treated me as the trophy, then couldn’t deliver. Now I’m married, because he wouldn’t take no for an answer, and I’m grateful he didn’t. I always knew what I wanted, which is where it all begins. I can help others get theirs, too.” – Taylor Marsh
