Healthy Truth #11 – Accountability

Truth #11 – Accountability cannot force me; it can only reinforce me. In Paul’s letter to the church in Galatia, he followed up on his instructions to carry each [...]

Presidents Strip

It’s barely past Valentine’s Day and already we’re facing another celebration in America. But this one is even a legal holiday for much of the nation: [...]

One Date Changed Everything – Upper Thighs

The lower half of her legs glistened with lavender-scented oil as she regarded me. “Are you sure?” she asked, her eyes narrowing slightly but not in any sort of [...]


road head

Road Head

Road head (or "road h" for short, for some reason) is when a man is driving while a woman performs oral sex on him. Not very safe, but... [...]

To the Window

Unfortunately, glass has a two-way quality. With two-story houses that can see over our privacy fence behind us, this poses a quandary. You see, generally, we're pretty "clothing optional" about things [...]

Repurposed Beaters

In honor of Earth Day this year, I thought I’d share a little story of how the Osgood family recycled [white] trash into turn-on. It’s not really another of my [...]

man with a headache

No More Headaches

I was reading in an old magazine and stumbled across an interesting tidbit. A survey and found something that gives me some hope. A majority of migraine sufferers reported [...]

One Date Changed Everything – Thighs

  Breathing a thickening haze of lavender, I swore this woman might just have more muscle in her thighs than I had in my whole twiggy-yet-flabby body. And from what I [...]

Exposed Repose – Can Parents Sleep Naked?

The tangle of limbs, the heat of skin on skin, it's great. And so it remained until my wife peed on a stick one day. Now, my most comfortable state was in question. I knew what newlyweds did. We were good at that. But I didn't know what parents did. So, I dug deeper. [...]


peanut M&Ms

Push-up Price Tag

“Dad, can I buy some of these?” he asks, rattling the familiar yellow wrapper of peanut M&Ms. “Sure, son. But there’s a price. Look on the [...]


The Bath, Summer Evening, by Félix Vallotton 1892

The Novelty of Nudity

When I became a parent, I determined I would not raise children who would be ashamed of their bodies. Modesty, privacy, and self-respect were qualities I wanted to pass on to [...]


Patriot Day

Patriot Day – Reflections on September 11th

When Phil first asked if I’d consider writing a post about September 11th, I admit I was at a bit of a loss. What would I write about? It’s at best an emotional [...]



Bare Bottom Dash

I’ve mentioned the great fun of co-showering with my wife, and how it serves as something much richer than a sexual experience (though it’s challenging to work in [...]


Tuke, Henry Scott (1858–1929), "August Blue," 1893

Can Christians Skinny Dip

In a previous post, I mentioned I saw no need for a universal injunction on Christians in bikinis. My wife and I can use discretion in the when and where, but in the right [...]

ITLAPD – Irreverent Edition

I love this time of year. The summer heat here in Texas begins to dissipate, rain storms roll across the skies, and school takes all the brats — I mean, kids — back out [...]

Checking Out Grandma

I’m not proud of it, but I’ve checked out my wife’s grandmothers more times than I can count. Now, let me clarify. I’m not saying I’ve lusted [...]


breasts in all shapes and sizes

Breasts in All Shapes and Sizes

For all the substantiation of the cliché “penis envy”, I feel women suffer from it more than men, though with their breasts. Women with small breasts long for [...]
