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

Occupy Wall Street Sunday Meets the World Awakening

Get ready for the Sunday show onslaught.

Conservatives are nervous. They had an Astroturf movement, which is now being upstaged by a real grass roots uprising. So what do they do? They send someone to discredit the protesters. Fox News channel will be drooling on themselves.

It’s déjà vu all over again. People are just smarter today and they won’t be fooled.

The photos from around the world are sensational.

Let the Sunday talk shows top what the Occupy Wall Street and Awakening protesters have done.

Meet the Guy Who Snitched on Occupy Wall Street to the FBI and NYPD

The Occupy Wall Street protests have been going on for a month. And it seems the FBI and NYPD have had help tracking protesters’ moves thanks to a conservative computer security expert who gained access to one of the group’s internal mailing lists, and then handed over information on the group’s plans to authorities and corporations targeted by protesters.

Since the Occupy Wall Street protest began on September 17, New York security consultant Thomas Ryan has been waging a campaign to infiltrate and discredit the movement. Ryan says he’s done contract work for the U.S. Army and he brags on his blog that he leads “a team called Black Cell, a team of the most-highly trained and capable physical, threat and cyber security professionals in the world.” But over the past few weeks, he and his computer security buddies have been spending time covertly attending Occupy Wall Street meetings, monitoring organizers’ social media accounts, and hanging out with protesters in Lower Manhattan.
