Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, disability, dating, love and life! Hope you have a nice stay! I grew up in the analog age. If there is a digital divide between generations, I am definitely an immigrant to the world of technology where my children are natives.

Dick pics are everywhere, and nobody knows what to do about them. I think it's your dick, and how you fucking photograph it. A spate of recent papers seeks to engorge the discourse—and explore just why men are sending these nudes in the first place.
