As promised we’re returning to the bookish content.
Also, this little series looks like it will grow beyond the three posts, but we’ll see. If you want to see the other posts click on the tag.
The third book is this little series, is one that filled the gaps between some of the sex education I received, and helped me understand sexuaulity on a whole new level.
