The Walking Dead or Darol is the Worst Mash-up Name Ever

  Okay, I promise I won't post this every week, but I did want to let you know that I'm going to be doing a regular recap of The Walking Dead with Clay Morgan and Knox McCoy after every new episode. I love this, because unfortunately, there just aren't enough people in my real life who love the show and I need to share my love of The Walking Dead and my hatred of Lori Grimes with as many folks as possible. So if you're a fan of the show even though Lori is terrible, and Shane is gone, and Carl has a stupid face, and Carol and Daryl are probably going to hook up and make everyone sad because they have rhyme-y names and that is THE WORST, be sure to subscribe to the Xtra Bacon podcast. You can also follow along on Twitter and on Facebook. Check this brief clip: For the … [Read more...]

The Walking Dead or Why I Hate Lori Grimes

Xtra Bacon Podcast

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to sit down with(ish) Knox McCoy and Clay Morgan to talk about The Walking Dead. Really, the whole thing turned into me ranting about how much I hate Lori Grimes. And then something about a sex scene between Hershel and Lori. I don't really know how that happened. I was in a bit of a blind rage just thinking about how we're going to have to put up with her for another whole season in just a couple of days. Also, I'm used to podcasting about sex, so maybe they were trying to make me feel more comfortable? But in the least comfortable way possible? But Knox and Clay had some insightful things to say about the show, so you should definitely check it out. Watch the video clip below and then head over here to listen to the full podcast. While you're … [Read more...]

It’s Hump Day, Baby

I have been a long-time fan of sex. I am not a fan of the ways that sex gets messed up. By the culture. By the Church. By individuals. So when Támara contacted me about doing a sex podcast with her and Sharideth, I was screaming yes, yes, yes almost immediately. Hence The Wednesday Nooner was conceived. And today, after much labor, it is born. (It wasn't a totally natural birth - we all had some liquid pain meds to help it along.) Every Wednesday at noon (Eastern time), we will be bringing you a podcast about sex. Ideas on spicing up your sex life, thoughts on surviving when you and your partner are apart, sex in pop culture, even sexual vocabulary words. We aren't professionals. No degrees, no training. We're just three women who like talking, like sex, and like talking … [Read more...]

The Nooner Gals

This clock seems to be very happy that it's noon. If you know what I mean.

A long time ago, sex came to be. And it was very, very, very good. And then the same people who enjoyed it so much, jacked it all up. It was still very, very, very good a lot of the time, but it often wasn't as good as it could or should be. Which is really unfortunate because of just how freaking amazing it's supposed to be. Then one day, Tamara sent an email to Sharideth and me, asking if we'd like to do a podcast. About sex. Because all three of us think that sex should be good all the time, we agreed that we would make this happen. And we agreed that it would happen on Wednesdays, because that's hump day and that made us snicker. And we agreed that it would happen at noon, because nooners are fun and that's easy to remember. And we agreed that we would pour a … [Read more...]
