Recent happenings

Whew! It’s been a busy few weeks and I apologize for not blogging more often. There has been quite a lot going on! I have had tons of flowers blooming, which has been a very good thing for me. I love warm weather and flowers and I really think spring is ready to burst onto the scene full time.

I’ve also had quite a lot going on in terms of work. We recently completed a study related to lubricants and are getting ready to embark on another study related to sexual enhancement. On Monday, I guest lectured in a Women’s Health class and taped another ten Kinsey Confidential podcasts. By the way, it turns out that we have had tens of thousands of downloads of our Kinsey Confidential podcasts so please do keep spreading the word and letting your friends and family know that they can use these to learn about sex. I’ve also been working on a feature story (yes, related to sex) for a popular magazine and will be excited when that comes out (I think this summer).

Tomorrow I am off to Vegas to join some friends and colleagues and talk about sex toys, then it is off to Chicago for a truly fabulous evening at Victory Gardens where I will be taking part in the Literally Sexy event, and finally on to Rome where I will be giving a talk about sexual problems following cancer treatment at the European Federation of Sexology conference. And yes, I will be wired and working and even blogging throughout this time.

There have been other things going on too and I can’t wait to share them with you another day. In the mean time, I hope you’ll enjoy this picture of my crocuses as they started to bloom a couple of weeks ago. (I know, I’m such a dork). Please keep reading and writing and thinking about sex – and let me know if there are any topics you’d like me to cover. I’m all ears!
