A Trilogy of Red: Part 1 – Crimson

Deep in a copse, under a thicket of brambles his member strokes your inner thigh. Cotton sodden from dampened earth, and a mystical murmur hangs beneath the treeline.  It trickles down your leg to mingle with mud and leaves, like a wet dream; a Rorschach test – all confused and […]

A Cause for Concern: The Surge in Human Trafficking & Slavery

American Mary (2012): Review

Rape culture and the double standard

If you’ve been anywhere around the Internet this past summer, you probably heard about the controversy surrounding Daniel Tosh’s rape joke at a comedy club.

When Did You Last Beat Your Wife?

As I grew up, I learned how much domestic violence there was around me. The earliest incidence I recall was from our next door neighbours. There were constant arguments. She drank.
