Is Your Love Big Enough? The Syrian Refugee Crisis

Photo Credit – Freedom House We at the Sisterwives have had the Syrian refugees on our hearts very much this week. The opinion war waging in our country has weighed on us and has prompted a number of us to speak out. In light of this, we decided to link those posts together here. We […]

Flip it and Reverse it in the Man(di) Cave with Pumpkin Spiced Latte (PSL)

It’s that time of the month again. Shut up. I mean, it’s that time of the month for the SisterWives. No we haven’t all migrated to the same cycle. What is wrong with you people? It’s our turn to answer some questions from our guys who were so gracious and fun to answer our questions […]

Fear and Loathing in the Man(di) Cave

Happy October. Since cobwebs fill the corners of our homes and scary dolls habitat our kitchen windows, we decided it might be best to add a little bit of a fear factor to the Man(di) Cave this month. We’ve asked three men some very dark and twisted questions, and they obliged by offering some even […]

You Make Me Wanna…..

In the spirit of Straddling Jesus, and keeping with the general bawdy theme this week, I reworked this from my personal blog. In other words, I took out all of the really tacky stuff. Enjoy. ~ Renee Gentlemen: I want to talk about your lingam. Not to be confused with your lingus. Although I am […]

What Are You Afraid Of?

You’re going where? my mother asks me. To Texas. To meet some of the women I blog with. Don’t do anything daring, she warns Like what? I say. It is 1960’s New Orleans. My mother stands in front of a full length mirror in a dressing room reminiscent of Blanche DuBois. The air ripples from the merciless summer […]

A Labor Day Highlight Reel (according to Mandi)

Every article that we publish means something to us. The story grabs us and makes us think, makes us laugh, sometimes makes us cry. Writing is often the result of bleeding one’s soul onto paper, and we’ve seen a lot of blood here. Beautiful, gripping, powerful blood. Today, I’m offering you a little bit of […]

Back Off

Remember those Yosemite Sam mudflaps that said ‘Back Off’? We need to resurrect that, only we need it as a handy little sign women can flash when they feel threatened. Let me back up a little. I find the aging process a mostly enjoyable and interesting process. I’ve never been more self accepting than I […]

In Which I Decide Not to Stop Blogging

Originally posted on A Buick in the Land of Lexus:
? “Write what you know…” What DON’T I know? I know music. Not just to listen to, to live to. I’ll talk vinyl vs digital.  Rock vs Bach. I know music facts. Facts that lived inside dusty leather bound volumes of Creem and Rolling Stone;…

Is This Thing On? Next week, on Sisterwives…

Listen…  

Perspective can change our belief system wholly and completely. We can even take on a different perspective to fight jealousy. August 13

Slaying My Green-Eyed Monster

When our air conditioner broke, we had to turn the air off for a few hours. It happened to be one of the hottest, most humid days Chicago has seen in a while. As I was coming into the house from outside, I felt the cool relief of our well-insulated home. The humidity was gone […]

I’m Feisty for My Age

“The weird thing is, you get more comfortable in yourself, even as time is giving you less reason for it. When you’re young and beautiful, you’re paranoid and miserable. I think one of the great advantages of getting older is that you let go of certain things.”                                                                  ~Helen Mirren Everyone has that moment, I […]

This Is Who I Am

You may remember Sharon her for her piece, The Picture is Only Perfect in Her Head, where she wrote about being the child of a narcissistic mother. Struggling to define your sexuality is confusing enough in a world that loves to tell you who you are – to do so against the backdrop of abusive relationships can be heartbreaking. Please […]

Am I Too Angry to Get Laid?

Please welcome my friend and guest poster today, who has chosen to remain anonymous – she is one of the toughest people I know, as well as one of the kindest. She will be the biggest advocate for those she believes in, and a force to be reckoned with for those she does not. She […]

Sex, Writing and Rock & Roll

  You know when it’s good. The hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Your skin tingles with excitement. Your head is buzzing, humming with anticipation. You feel everything with increased intensity. You feel alive. Electric. You don’t want it to end. The intensity of the moment washes over you, leaving you exhilarated. […]

My Highlight Reel

Soon after I began blogging, I stumbled upon a blog, immediately falling in love. I watched from afar, too afraid to actually comment, but I liked her. A lot. She was cute. She was funny. She was … quirky. Later I found her on Instagram, and my admiration grew into a full on girl crush. […]
