Santa Claus Gave Me The Sex Talk

WesandSanta

Wrote this article about the time I learned the truth about sex AND Santa in the same night back in 2011 (how time flies!) and had it touched up & republished on Huffington Post today… just in time for the holidays! (*Events contained within are all true and unembellished. Sadly for me.)

Confessions of an “Old” Virgin

n-WES-large570

Once upon a time, I was a 23-year-old virgin. Now, I know that’s not insanely old, I don’t have anything on that 40-year-old virgin they made the movie about, but it *is* older than most people. According to a sex survey conducted by ABC, only 3% of Americans over the age of 22 are still chaste, and everyone knows that when you’re suffering through extra years of virginity you multiply those years by seven (as in dog-years), so actually I was, like, a 52-year-old virgin, so that movie should have really been made about me.

I shed some light and make some confessions about what life was like as an ‘Old Virgin’ in my latest article for Huffington Post Gay Voices. And of course you can check out more confessions from me in my e-book, “I Swear I’ll Be Good At It!,” here. And if you’re not much for reading, you can now download the audiobook version on Audible for your listening pleasure! Check out the sample below: 

“I Swear I’ll Be Good At It!” (Audiobook Edition) Is Out Today!

audibleinstaAudible bought the rights to my first e-book & I’m very excited to share that the audiobook edition of “I Swear I’ll Be Good At It!” is out today! So, if you ever wanted to hear *someone else* tell you funny stories about my formerly non-existent sex life, NOW YOU CAN! (Blood relatives & current boyfriend, please disregard this post, there’s nothing you need to listen to here.)

Huge thanks to my narrator Jed Drummond and the entire Audible team! You’re all incredible!

You know how when really embarrassing things happen, people have been known to shrug and sigh, “Oh well, another story for my memoir.” I used to say that a lot, and today I’m very excited to announce the publication of my e-book, “I SWEAR I’LL BE GOOD AT IT!” It’s available for download now on Amazon, you can read it on your Kindle, or using the Kindle App for Mac, PC, iPhone & iPad: http://amzn.to/1cr5o3P

 

What My First Kiss Taught Me About Love

I’m very happy to share my first article for Huffington Post was published today. It’s a rewritten version of an article I wrote for Thought Catalog, formerly titled “Kissing Girls And (Kinda) Liking It.” It’s one of my favorite articles because it reminds me of a happy time in my life, and I share the memory with a very good friend. My first kiss may not have been with a member of the sex I’m attracted to, but it taught me an awful lot about love and romance, and that’s what the story is about. I hope you enjoy reading it!

(And as an added bonus, here I am as one-half of the most impossibly sexy 13-year-old couple you’ve ever seen. I’m so, so lucky that we’re still best friends a decade later — we’re like family.)
