Best of 2011

One crazy book launch. An abundance of kind words. A gang of interviews & collaborations.

And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Here’s a tiny recap of effervescent 2011.


The fruits of my labor (articles that went a little viral):

Round Bellies are Beautiful // An ode to full bellies, voluptuous curves, & womanly eminence. My belly dancing friends feasted lavishly on this one.

8 Simple Affirmations You Should Whisper to Yourself Daily // A compilation of love-drenched phrases we need to murmur to ourselves every so often. Sure to make your skin goosefleshy & your cheeks warm with completion.

The Lie of Masculinity // From the courageous lips of a self-possessed male who is more than his gender. A thousand bravos.

Your Body is Beautiful the Way It Is // An exercise in euphoric mindfulness of the magnificence of your body (& it’s truly magnificent).

Pubic Hair & the Hairlessness Epidemic // Wherein I answer a reader’s question about the disappearance of female body hair &, in turn, provoke awareness about our own pubic hair preferences.
