Tonight! The Erotic Literary Salon-Live – Adult Sex-Ed, Censorship

Guest host Heather Shayne Blakeslee will be leading the Salon this evening – not to be missed.

At the Salon we usually keep politics at bay, but on this site I occasionally have the desire to rant, especially when censorship is involved.

  • vulnerable
  • entitlement
  • diversity
  • transgender
  • fetus
  • evidence-based
  • science-based

These are words the Trump Administration has banned the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) from using.
