For those who haven’t heard, I have a new subscription-based blog at Patheos.com’s Pagan channel. It’s based on my book and workshops on The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power, and I publish it weekly. It’s supported by videos and by a biweekly video chat session, so it’s like getting the whole course in the comfort of your own home! I’m really excited about it because I really believe it’s the best possible format that isn’t in person, and for only $5 a month per person, it’s also really reasonable for everyone. If you’ve ever considered taking my classes, this is the best possible way I can imagine to do it! Check it out!

And this is, quite bluntly, bullshit.

It’s not always easy being the Honest Courtesan; sometimes in the process of talking about human sexuality, I run into some aspect of my own sexuality which is somewhat embarrassing to admit to. At that point I have to decide whether to walk around the subject, or say “I’d really rather not discuss that”, or just throw caution to the wind and forge ahead out of my comfort zone, trusting that Aphrodite will bless my courage. Often it’s because a reader asks a question which can be answered in part by discussing my own feelings, but in this particular occasion it’s because a reader wrote an article in Psychology Today. The reader is Dr. Robert King, and the article is subtitled “What Monster Porn Might Tell Us About Human Nature”. It’s a…
