Wow, it's that day again! Seems like just a little while ago that I wrote my gratitude post for last year. I would like to think I've stayed in gratitude for that whole time, but I know that's not true. I do try, though, and I think I do pretty well; better all the time. I am in gratitude more often than not, and it's a beautiful place to be.

When someone cuts me off in traffic, I try to be grateful they didn't hit me. Not only along with my pissed off attitude, but instead of it. Everywhere around me, I have so much to be grateful for.

Here are my 2018 gratitude highlights. (I'll leave out all the people who cut me off in traffic.)

I'm grateful for all of you who find value in what I put out there in the world. I mean, what a bizarre niche of sex education I find myself in! But I am indeed in it, solidly, happily, and passionately. I would never have guessed that this strap-on adventure would take me so far, and help so many people along the way. Thank you for joining me on this journey. You read what I write, listen to what I record, and learn from what I teach.  And you share your stories with me! You trust me to offer them up to my pegging world. Without all of you, this journey wouldn't exist.

I'm immensely grateful to my Patrons and Donors. You have made my life so much easier. Thanks to you, I now have the time and space to do a truly weekly podcast instead of an every once in a while podcast. I have been able to cut way back on my day job, massage, and my hands say thank you. When the end of the month comes I no longer find myself scrambling to cover rent. When the dentist says, "That will be $500", I can cover it. You have made a big difference. I am so grateful!

I'm grateful that I finally found the wherewithal to get my ass in gear and start exercising consistently. I feel 10 years younger, I've dropped 25 lbs (so far), and my cholesterol has gone down from 264 to 199. Now that I am in my 60s, it seems exercise is no longer optional. But it's totally worth it. Pulling on a pair of jeans I have not been able to wear for a few years feels amazing.

I'm grateful for my lovers...and for the plurality of that statement. That's new for me, and I am relishing every moment of it. Finally feeling like I deserve it, too. Non-monogamy has become a reality in my life! Love you guys, and cherish my time with you; every touch, every smile and every moan.

I'm grateful for all you toy makers, harness makers and lube makers. Your brazen courage in the world of sexually-oriented manufacturing is awesome, and a huge part of my journey. Couldn't do it without you!

Last but definitely far from least, thanks to all my sex educator friend and associates. We are all in this together and it's not easy sometimes. Thanks for your support and for being an inspiration to me, more often than you know.

I leave you with some thoughts and a short clip from Bill Maher (my occasional guilty pleasure). This holiday season, let's just try to enjoy each other. Watch the clip!

Lots of Love,

    1. Bill is a guilty pleasure for me. I don’t always agree with the WAY he says things, but I often agree with the point he’s making. He says things I think, but would never say!
