I  should’ve kept my mouth shut.

But Wilmont Academy’s been living in the Dark Ages when it comes to sex ed, and someone had to take matters into her own hands. Well, I’m a kick-ass coder, so I created a totally anonymous, totally untraceable blog where teens can come to get real, honest, nothing-is-off-limits sex advice.

And holy hell, the site went viral—and we’re talking way beyond Wilmont—overnight. Who knew this town was so hard up?

Except now the school administration is trying to shut me down, and they’ve forced Dean—my coding crush, aka the hottest guy in school—to try to uncover who I am. If he discovers my secret, I’ll lose him forever. And thousands of teens who need real advice won’t have anyone to turn to.

Ask me anything…except how to make things right.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you probably know that I really love sex-positive YA books. When I heard about Ask Me Anything by Molly E. Lee, I immediately went and requested the ARC on Netgalley. I’m super excited to read it, and I was even more excited when I got an email from Heather at Entangled Publishing asking if I wanted to share an excerpt!

Honestly, everything about the excerpt just makes me want to read the book more. I have a couple library books to get through, but once those are done… I’m definitely jumping straight into this one.


excerpt

Question of the Day:
Volleyballstar6543 asks: “My boyfriend recently went to college, and while we’re making the long-distance thing work, I’m missing not only him but his…physical contact. We have phone sex, but I feel like I need more than just me to get me there. It’s slightly embarrassing, but I want to buy a vibrator, or something, but I have no clue where to start. Help!”

I’m super glad to hear that you’re making long-distance work! That is such a wonderful thing and shows you two really care about each other. And you have no need to be embarrassed. It’s completely natural to crave that intimacy even if your partner is hundreds of miles away.

And, lucky for us, we live in a digital age where almost anything can be ordered online. This saves you the hassle of finding a specialty shop and browsing the overwhelming selection of items out there—seriously, there is a ton.

My top recommendation would have to be the Smile Maker or another product from the same company. They are top-rated for their quality and execution and have over five thousand five-star reviews by customers worldwide. If none of those pique your interest, I would recommend researching what will best fit your needs and then triple check the reviews. Customer satisfaction is the number one clue on if a product is worth it or not, no matter what that product’s use may be for.

If shipping to your house is a problem, there are some major retail stores that allow you to purchase online but pick up in store. Or you could always ask your boyfriend to purchase it and then ship it to you in a personal package from him to not draw suspicion. If it’s not an issue, then more power to you!

I hope this helps keep things fresh and continues to fan the flames in your relationship!

In the meantime,

Stay Sexy. Stay Healthy.

Book review: The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang

The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang
Rating: ★★★★☆
Links: Amazon • TBD • Goodreads
Publication Date: February 13, 2018

Paris, at the dawn of the modern age:

Prince Sebastian is looking for a bride―or rather, his parents are looking for one for him. Sebastian is too busy hiding his secret life from everyone. At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia―the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion!

Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances―one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend? Jen Wang weaves an exuberantly romantic tale of identity, young love, art, and family. A fairy tale for any age, The Prince and the Dressmaker will steal your heart.

I’d seen so many positive reviews of The Prince and the Dressmaker and after not finding it at my library for months, I did what any reasonable person would do — I put it on hold and waited (semi-)patiently for my turn. And, honestly, it was worth the wait. This book was just as adorable as I’d expected.

It’s about a prince who sometimes wants to wear dresses and hires himself a talented dressmaker to make it happen. Frances never judges Sebastian and honestly, their whole friendship is so cute and wholesome and wonderful. There’s a side plot about to what extent we should put our own feelings aside in order to make our friends happy and I think I liked that just as much as the main story (of acceptance, both of yourself and those around you).

The reason I gave this four instead of five stars is that I felt it dragged a little bit toward the end, but overall, it was really, really great. I had a huge smile on my face most of the time I was reading it (though there’s one troubling scene in particular where I was definitely not smiling) and kept thinking it would make such a cute movie.

I’d highly recommend this one even if you’re on the fence about graphic novels. It’s just a super cute, super fast read.
