It’s official! The advanced copies of The Lusty Vegan book are here! Right this second, I have a fresh copy nestled into my lap, and I’m petting it like a kitten.

Even more exciting is the fantastic tour Ayinde and I are rolling out this fall. Our first stop? New York City of course.

On October 15 and 16—yep, that’s right, two nights!–we will be hosting a culinary art installation at Suite ThreeOhSix at 7:30 pm.

A new cruelty-free condom recently rolled down the red carpet, joining the ranks of other ethical contraceptive powerhouses like Glyde and Sir Richard’s. The newest member of the cruelty-free condom marketplace, called Sustain, is not only cruelty-free but made from fair trade rubber and latex. Side note: The condoms were invented by New York-based father and daughter duo Jeffrey and Meika Hollender.

Familial entrepreneurship aside, what I like about the Sustain condom campaign is the fact that it targets women! It doesn’t merely market “her pleasure” or some bullshit (ribbed condom, studded condom – please, it still feels like fucking rubber), but it promotes female empowerment by encouraging ladies to take responsibility for their own condom consumption with the slogan “get on top and start f*cking naturally.” Can’t argue with that… To sweeten the pot, ten percent of profits go towards women’s reproductive health.

In talking to my girlfriends and just existing in today’s society in general, I often notice many assume that (in a hetero situation) it’s the guy’s job to carry a condom, and that any girl who carries or supplies a condom could be considered “easy.” This is a crazy notion; Anyone who wants to be in charge of their own sexual health by way of condoms should be stocking up on rubbers, and what better way to do it than with cruelty-free ones. That way, no matter where you go or who you’re with, you’ve got it covered – literally.

There are some pretty interesting videos circling around the interwebz highlighting the much-spoken topic of vegans being better in bed.

Unfortunately this string of videos, done by the tuneless and terrifying John Sakars, are highly cringe-worthy. Sakars, an animal rights activist, has been making these for a couple of years now. As creeptastic as this fellow comes off to me, at least he is fighting the good fight? Every movement has to have a handful of creepy pale dudes making music videos in their basements, right?

Summer is the season of guacamole. Well, it certainly feels like it, with all the barbecues and al-fresco parties serving up the great green dip. I mean, what says summer louder than a big bowl o’ guac? Nothin, that’s what. But as much as I love the creamy, satisfying goodness of guac, I also like to spice it up a bit sometimes. One addition I really love is lilikoi, also known as passionfruit, which is packed with vitamin C and A. When eaten alone, lilikoi is a bit too tart for most, but when added to drinks, dips and dressings, it’s fan-fucking-tastic. For those of you who don’t live in a place where passionfruit is literally growing on the side of the road, you can usually find it at an asian grocer or specialty market.

Behold, this kick-ass recipe for a tropical guacamole that will have you licking the bowl.

Everyday I work harder at being mindful: enjoying the moment I am in instead of rushing ahead trying to get to what’s next. It’s not easy, but focusing on the task you’re doing, even if that task is simply walking the dog or sitting with your partner, helps to increase pleasure, enhance focus and productivity and make you happier overall. I mean, have you ever seen a miserable buddha? Probably not. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get hyper new-agey on you. Below are a handful of ways to be more mindful across several different aspects of life.

I’ve written about high-tech sex before, but since then, the world has come a long way in terms of sexing up our smartphones.

Generally I have a “no-phones-in-bed” rule but maybe I might reconsider for a few of these…

Glassy Sex.

This Google Glass wearable tech let’s you see yourself having sex “through your partner’s eyes.” This is 99 percent always a bad idea, even if you and your partner look like this:

 These guys should totally be on BoyfriendTwin (whose name should probably be DoppelGangBangers) 

3nder.

I don’t know how to pronounce this, but the purpose for this app (brought to you by the Tinder and Grinder folks) is to allow you to find people to have a threesome with without having to poach experimental-looking singles at a bar with your boyfriend in tow. Not that I’ve done that ever.

Dickorate.

This app has actually recently been removed but I still want to talk about it anyway because it’s redickulous. This dick-dressing app let men take pics of their junk, make them bigger (obvi) and then add weird accessories, like sunglasses and little dick sweaters. They can then send the pics to their lover, who will undoubtably use them as blackmail later on. Here’s a true story: Nobody wants your dick pic. Ever. Also it reminds me of this hilarious video which will get suck in your head for days.

Sock-it.

Okay as someone who once had twelve room-mates, I actually kind of like this one. If playing “Big Papa” on repeat for 43 minutes didn’t make things clear enough, this app lets you alert people when you’re having sex so they leave you the f*ck alone.

Do you use any helpful sex apps? Would you use 3nder? Are you a little bummed Dickorate is no longer a thing?

Ah, summer is finally here. The season of barbecues, beach days, and humidity-related skin issues. My skin always gets a bit wonky in the more humid months; sweat makes me more acne-prone, and although I try to hide my face from the sun like a vampire, the rays sometimes do find my face, which dries me out.
