Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows?

However, women who are not taking that form of contraception seem to be more likely to go for more sensitive types without traditionally masculine features.Three cheers for rubbers and diaphragms, sez I.
