Orgasm therapy

Today’s selection — from The Birth of the Pill by Jonathan Eig. In the 1800s, in much of the United States and in other countries, birth control and abortion were banned to discourage promiscuity.

A long walk to freedom…

I haven’t written for a long time, A bad case of psychic constipation, unsure of how to express myself, how to give the Camino its due. Something had to change, I was in a bad place before I left.
