Field Testing: Having Sex on Your Period

Warning: if you’re put off by very frank discussion of the female body and its functions, you should probably stop reading right now. I’m going to talk about menstrual cycles in a non-titillating manner. In Book 1 I outline several methods of dealing with your period while working. I hadn’t tried them all when I wrote that section. Since then, I have. I’ve been off birth control pills for the past year and my periods have resumed their normal, very-heavy tendencies. Besides not working on my heavy days, I’ve tried some different methods. I have to. As always, being on my period guarantees lots of appointment-requests. I still haven’t figured out why that happens. Obviously this post is for those who aren’t taking birth control that completely stops menstruation. Instead Cups I still love my Instead Cups. The offer the best options. For light days, they’re perfect on their own. On heavy days I still put something absorbent inside the cup before inserting them. A low-to-medium absorbency tampon can work, or a small, natural sea sponge. It’s very important to remember you’re using backup and make sure you remove it when you remove the cup. Leaving it inside will cause an infection. If you’re having sex with someone well-endowed, they could cause the cup to leak, with or without the absorbent materials inside. Not much you can do about that. Know your body, know your clients and try to work around your period if you and/or your clients really don’t want leakage. I discuss using the cups a bit more in Book 1. Natural Sea Sponges The have been...

Know Your Rights!

A new administration, continuing crackdowns on CraigsList and sex workers watching their incomes fall leave many vulnerable who haven’t worried before. Just in time, SWOP-Chicago has released two videos for all sex workers who face the possibility of arrest on prostitution charges. It’s an excellent resource for all. I highly encourage anyone reading this blog to view the videos and learn. Know Your Rights Part I covers arrest — what to do and what not to do. Basically, you stand a much better chance of events turning in your favor if you stay silent. Know Your Rights Part II covers what happens after an arrest and spends significant time on walking you through your Emergency Response Worksheet step-by-step. These videos are valuable resources compiled not only by the actual collective experience of SWOP-Chicago, but anchored by their legal consultations as well. No rumors or urban legend allowed. Straight up, practical lessons on handling the event in the best possible way. Repeat viewings are...

Book #2 is on the way!

Yes, finally, it is. First, thank you for your patience. I make big plans, but they aren’t always on the timetable I’d like. It is printed and should be at my fulfillment center within a week. It won’t be available to the public for another couple weeks. If you want a jump on things, you can either sign up for my newsletter or reserve a copy. You’ll get an opportunity to buy the book at a discount before it’s available to the general public (at full price). That’s my way of thanking my many loyal readers who have been waiting patiently through publishing delays. Buying information will be included in the newsletter or purchase email. I apologize for all the delays, but now there are no more delays! (Fingers crossed that the delivery truck doesn’t skid on an icy road and dump my books in the snow or...

When Will Book 2 Be Out?

I’m starting to worry about a pitchfork-bearing mob; hopefully this explanation will help. Golden Girl Press is a very tiny company funded by one person. Though the company takes care of its own day-to-day expenses, the big things – like printing Book #2 – come out of the pocket of the company’s founder/owner. Right now, that pocket is very thin and the cost of printing is not going down. Which is why the release date keeps getting moved back. Life happens. (Check the past few months of TexasGoldenGirl.com if you don’t already know.) Though the enthusiasm from my readers is welcome (it means I’m doing something right), there’s not much else to say other than it will be out when it’s out. Unless one of you would like to be an angel investor! One day Golden Girl Press will be a solid small press churning out several books a year. But it’s not there yet. We’re struggling to finish giving birth to this one (it is a big one, though). Fingers crossed – it will be able to see the light of day soon. It will be a great relief to me and I hope you enjoy the read. Thank you all for your continued...
