|The Femme Show|
Also, I can't shut up about the Fourth Annual All New Femme Show, which runs on October 7th and 8th in Cambridge. I plan to be there and I hope you will be too. If you've never heard of the Femme Show, you can find out more here.
Meanwhile, on the research front, a new study suggests that saying swear words actually stresses your brain. (Thanks to Janeen for the fabulous link). I've yet to look at the research in any detail, but I'm wondering whether this stress includes positive adrenaline spikes. Positive stress counts too, after all, and I'm sure we'd be lost without it... While we're at it, another report suggests that boys who masturbate are more likely to use condoms when they have partnered sex. (Thanks for the link, Charlie Glickman). The researchers stress that these initial findings merit further exploration. But hell, it makes sense that those of us who take care of our bodies would...well...take care of our bodies, right?
And Part 2 of my new story Three Pink Boxes is now up at the Good Vibrations Magazine. If you missed it, you can also read Part 1 here.
Now I need to go and relax. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a beer, methinks.
