Metamorphosis

“A change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means.” I think we can all agree we go through many overhauls in our lifetime. Through life choices or circumstance, we evolve. The real prize is being able to look back at our former […]

The Man(di) Cave Gets Intimate (Kind of)

Turn down the lights. Pull on something more comfortable. I have a treat for you today. I’ve invited some very special guests to join me in the Man(di) Cave, and we are getting a little … er … ahem … intimate. Come on in. Sit down. Take off your shoes. Let me introduce you to […]

Seven Simple Tips To Make Her Happy

Each month, the SisterWives have dedicated at least one day to getting inside the mind of a man, three men actually, when we invite our favorite male bloggers to enlighten us on some of the things we (I’m speaking for women here) question about them. We haven’t necessarily played fair though, so today, I’m opening […]

Reality Cuts In

There is something magical about living inside words. Stories sweep us off our feet and carry us into worlds we’d never otherwise get to visit.  Narratives allow us to fall in love, battle enemies, destroy evil, and share any number of emotions inside the safe and harmless imaginary landscape of fantasy.

One-Hundred Proof

Sometimes it’s as simple as a line from a familiar song, heard when you don’t expect it. That’s all it takes to trigger a memory, to send you back to where you know you shouldn’t go – but you go anyway. Please welcome Amy Noble, who writes with such rich, authentic, emotion that her story almost leaves behind a trace, […]

Is This Thing On? Next Week, on Sisterwives….

This past week, we explored sexuality and shame, exploration and oppression, and expressed our views on the purity movement. FUCK YOU, PURITY. It seems only natural to move on the next thing: Love & Lust. We have a sensory delight from Amy Noble that will stay in your head all day, and the lovely Hasty Words will bring […]

Fuck You Purity.

A group of young girls sit in a circle in a dimly lit room. They are trying not to giggle as they listen to the group leader talk. They squirm uncomfortably at the mention of certain words. Sex. Virginity. Lust. Their snickers stop and their backs stiffen at the next word uttered. Purity. The group leader then passes around […]

She Will Be Loved

Growing up can be such a confusing time. Things happen and sometimes we’re not sure what to make of them. The confusion, the secrecy, the shame. These feelings can shape a young mind. It’s not until a few decade’s worth of hindsight that we can see things from a different perspective. Carly of Growing Butterflies […]

Is This Thing On? Next Week On the SisterWives

We will be pushing boundaries and pushing buttons next week on the SisterWives. Sexual exploration and experimentation, religious guilt, the purity movement. No holding back. No holds barred. Hang on, it might get bumpy…

I’ll Change

One day, I’ll change You’ll be the first one that I call I owe you an apology Too many thanks, and that’s not all ‘Cause I been runnin’ long before I learned to crawl. ~The Indigo Girls 1989 That guy. The one who charms a woman with the grace and ease that he lights a stolen smoke off a borrowed zippo. The woman […]

Come As You Are

There have been a few moments in my life when I have found myself at a critical crossroad. I find myself asking myself the simple questions: Are you happy? Is it worth it? Unfortunately, a few of those times landed right in the middle of an alcohol and drug addiction, when I was already living […]
