My Little Pony: a story of gender neutral marketing

My Little Pony

My youngest son (age 8) is crazy about My Little Pony. He had heard children talk about the show at school and then became aware there was a movie as well. Roughly around the same time, my husband picked up a Tesco toy catalog. The first couple of pages in the catalog were completely gender neutral, featuring a range of “popular” toys without showing kids playing with the toys. My youngest happily circled the My Little Pony toys to put on his Christmas list and announced he really wanted to see the movie too. (more…)

Successful monogamy: is that possible?

Monogamous sex blogger: contradiction in terms?


When I started my sex blog, I did not know many other sex bloggers. I initially started my blog to have a place to post my erotic short stories and to muse about sex in general.
