    A lot of you have been asking if I will endorse Hillary Clinton. I am not ready to make an endorsement at this time. I’m waiting to see what shakes out in the next few months. In specific I’d like to see what Hillary’s platform is on Female Supremacy, polyandry & slavery. I’d also like to know where Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are on these issues before I offer My endorsement.

    A surprising number of people retain from childhood the idea that there is a fixed amount of wealth in the world. There is, in any normal family, a fixed amount of money at any moment. But that’s not the same thing. When wealth is talked about in this context, it is often described as a pie. “You can’t make the pie larger,” say politicians… What leads people astray here is the abstraction of money. Money is not wealth. It’s just something we use to move wealth around. So although there may be, in certain specific moments (like your family, this month) a fixed amount of money available to trade with other people for things you want, there is not a fixed amount of wealth in the world. You can make more wealth. Wealth has been getting created and destroyed (but on balance, created) for all of human history.

    What if all women were bigger and stronger than you? And thought they were smarter? What if women were the ones who started wars? What if too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos and no K-Y Jelly? What if the state trooper who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike was a woman and carried a gun? What if the ability to menstruate was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs? What if your attractiveness to women depended on the size of your penis? What if every time women saw you they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands? What if women were always making jokes about how ugly penises are and how bad sperm tastes? What if you had to explain what’s wrong with your car to big sweaty women with greasy hands who stared at your crotch in a garage where you are surrounded by posters of naked men with hard-ons? What if men’s magazines featured cover photos of 14-year-old boys with socks tucked into the front of their jeans and articles like: “How to tell if your wife is unfaithful” or “What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate” or “The truth about impotence”? What if the doctor who examined your prostate was a woman and called you “Honey”? What if you had to inhale your boss’ stale cigar breath as she insisted that sleeping with her was part of the job? What if you couldn’t get away because the company dress code required you wear shoes designed to keep you from running? And what if after all that women still wanted you to love them?

    RIGHT ON!

    Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are ‘I love you’, ‘I’m sorry’, and ‘Help me’? Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile and see how much pain they may be witholding inside.

    I wanted to share a tip that’s helped me over the last 3.5 years of sex work. I keep a journal of sorts, with quotes from clients that make me feel especially proud of what I do, quotes that remind me of why I love what I do, hilarious moments, touching moments, memories that fill me with satisfaction about my choices. Then, whenever I’m having a dry week I look through my notebook and remember that sex work is where I want to be, what I want to be doing. Even when it’s hard.
