  1. Faking Self-Respect

    Never Look as Terrible as You Feel

    06/06/2013 | Faye With a Knee

    The members of my large family have always considered it their life’s mission to give inappropriate and unsolicited advice. Whether it was my great-great-grandma telling me that gum sticks to your heart, or my little brother reminding me that my loud sneezes are a huge character flaw, there is never a shortage of cautionary tales […]

    Let’s Play Dress Up!

    05/31/2013 | Scarlett Ryan

    I love dressing up. Most of us do, whether it’s for a party, a holiday. . . or in the bedroom. As an adult actress, I’ve played a naughty eighteenth century maid, a sexy elf (complete with wings) and even a nun (don’t ask). As well as being a giggle, it gave me a love […]

    Stuff We Love, for Summer

    05/23/2013 | Peaches

    I asked my beloved pinner to create a Peaches Pinterest board of ideas for quirky brides. While doing so she found a wonderful site called Offbeat Bride, run by a fellow Seattleite. It’s chock-a-block full of interesting, unique and personal ideas for a nontraditional wedding. This photo is from this post and taken by James […]

    Sexy is Timeless

    05/22/2013 | Peaches

    We’re inundated every day with images of female beauty. The folks that art direct those photo shoots and then later assemble those photos into catalogs and magazines are looking for what is interesting to the camera. The lens makes its own demands. . . for angles. Cheekbones. Enormous lips. Stark clavicles. Erin Heatherton in a […]

    Teach Him How to Touch You

    05/10/2013 | Scarlett Ryan

    One of the biggest complaints I hear from women is that their partner’s method of giving you a hand job leaves a lot to be desired. He’s either not pushing your buttons in the right way, or failing to find them at all. Unfortunately many of us, rather than taking steps to address it, pretend […]

    My Experience With Boudoir Photography

    05/09/2013 | Stella Harris

    “You should come to my studio sometime.” It sounded like a bad pick-up line but in this case we had mutual friends so I decided to give it a try. The photographer directed me to a page on his website with tips on preparing for a photo shoot, and I studied it at length as […]

    Blow His Mind

    05/08/2013 | Faye With a Knee

    We’ve all been out on the town with our significant others when suddenly our worst nightmare is walking by in four inch heels. . . the gorgeous bombshell. She’s totally his type and you know he’s looking. HE knows he’s looking, but is hoping that you somehow missed the girl and the glances. Most of […]

    How to Talk to Your Guy

    05/03/2013 | Scarlett Ryan

    If you want your man to treat you like a princess, you need to start acting like one. And I’m not referring to having diva strops and being scared to do any hard work in case you break a nail. That’s not a princess, that’s a brat. What I mean is: don’t take any shit. […]

    How to Have a Cocktail Party, Part 3

    04/29/2013 | Netty

    This is the last article a three-part series. If you missed them, read about setting up your party space and your bar. Now we get to talk about. . . The Food This is both fun and frustrating. If your guest list doesn’t include at least one person with some special food needs, consider yourself […]


  10. Dove Real Beauty Sketches

    Your Real Beauty

    04/25/2013 | Peaches

    You’re probably familiar with Dove’s Real Beauty campaign, but you may not yet have seen this remarkable video they released a couple weeks ago. Using a real-life forensics artist to draw ordinary women based purely on their verbal description, Dove captures a heartbreaking truth: we judge ourselves much more harshly than others judge us. We […]

    A Spot of D.I.Y.

    04/19/2013 | Scarlett Ryan

    Masturbation is good for you. And good for your partner too–he stands a small chance of pushing your buttons if you don’t know where they are yourself. I’m a big believer in getting to know your own body and your own desires. Men have no qualms about this, so neither should we. Female masturbation has […]

    Why It’s Okay To Not Be “Fun”

    04/18/2013 | Peaches

    As a writer of naughty stories I am on the very outer ring of the planetary system that is public female sexuality, with women who take their clothes off onstage being in the center, models, singers and actresses closely orbiting them, and those of us who only assist others in imagining sexual activity as the […]

    What Makes Construction Workers Sexy?

    04/16/2013 | Peaches

    We know why men fantasize about the naughty schoolgirl, dominating nurse or coy French maid. There are stories, lore and cliches associated with these roles that have been discussed for so long that even someone who doesn’t spend much time pondering sexuality could easily explain to an alien, “Oh, yeah, a girl in a short […]

    How to Have a Cocktail Party, Part 2

    04/08/2013 | Netty

    This is a three-part series. Last week we talked about setting up your party space and next week we’ll get to the most fun part–the food! The Bar You’ll need an ice bucket and a small cooler to hold LOTS of ice. Whether you make a drink on the rocks or shake something up in […]

    The Bombshell Manual of Style

    04/04/2013 | Peaches

    I’ve carried this book around with me for more than ten years, back and forth from the West Coast to the East Coast (and back. . . and back again). I’ve given it as a gift a few times. It contains a message that, as far as I’m concerned, cannot be repeated often enough to […]

    How to Masturbate (For Your Partner)

    03/29/2013 | Scarlett Ryan

    It would appear that the male population in general has a love of female masturbation. Specifically, watching female masturbation. Solo films are perennially popular with male porn viewers. My first pornographic movie starred me alone and consisted of four five-minute segments, each in a different room in a different outfit. They all featured the same […]

    Who’s Your Villain?

    03/25/2013 | Peaches

    Most of us grew up with Disney movies involving princesses, wicked witches and singing rodents. And most of us take issue with what passive little ninnies those princesses tended to be. The same goes for action movies wherein the hero proves his manliness by rescuing some chick. Whether the story is for a girl or […]

    See Yourself As Sexy

    03/22/2013 | Scarlett Ryan

    Body image issues unfortunately dog many women, even the most beautiful. In fact, it’s often the models and actresses we so admire that suffer from this the most, as a result of being under constant scrutiny and comparison with their peers. A full examination of this is beyond the scope of this article, but suffice […]

    Restoring the Lost Art of Being a Good Lover

    03/20/2013 | Peaches

    Like Wesley in Princess Bride, who spent years building up an immunity to iocaine powder, I’ve spent the past few years developing the ability to cheerfully and honestly have no-strings-attached sex and still be friends with that person later. I’m not talking about hookup sex or one night stands, which in my experience tends to […]
