This was a total Susanne Vega moment.
Tonight I went to a live recording of the Sex Nerd Sandra podcast, which I’ve been a fan of for about two years now. Her guest was the brilliant Erika Moen, author of Dar and her current project, Oh Joy Sex Toy.
Depending on how they edit the episode, you may get to hear my voice as I ask my questions about being sex positive within my work. If they do, you’ll get to hear Erika’s rather surprising answer.
Even if they don’t use my question, I’m sure you’ll hear me laugh. Loudly. A lot. Because that’s what I do.
Before I had a job in Chicago, I would often walk the streets until two or three in the morning, listening to music or podcasts and thinking about what was coming next. My greatest memories of that city all involve moments of clarity spent under street lights with no one but a few nervous late night commuters to encroach on my solitude.
This was the first comic that I made with the idea that would become “Life and How to Live It” in mind. The first time I consciously decided to use comics to capture something very real about my life without filtering it.
I think this also marks the first time (but not the last) that you’ll see my part on the wrong side of my head.
