“I’m a Scorpio, this is kind of what we… do.”
We got in bed! You asked me questions! I answered them! Sam was there! IT WAS GREAT!
“This is only tangentially related to your question, but I think about the same girl nearly every time I put on mascara.”
“guys do you think i’ll ever have sex in a penthouse with floor to ceiling windows and a view
like while i’m still young enough to be bendy”
I got married to Jenny Owen Youngs four years ago, nearly to the day, so that I could demand that she get in our marital bed to livestream for you about all that we learned about weddings (and ourselves) in the process. We talked attire, budgets, pushy parents, feminism (of course), and oh-so-much-more.
“I think that’s a distinct problem that two women face. It’s that, first you’re friends with somebody. And you know you’re compatible. But you don’t know if you’re compatible just as friends or if you’re compatible as a couple because you care about each other.”
We had some thoughts.
Cameron Esposito got in bed with me and did my hair, SO THERE. We talked about religion, dog teeth, comedy, coming out, and her new podcast, Queery!
“i want to have a lesbian vibe! maybe i should just cut off all my hair and start wearing man clothes! haha. ok, probably not. maybe a rainbow or two. but that’s so cliche. maybe an “I AM A LESBIAN” teeshirt?”
“god forbid I delete that flirty note I drafted in 2014 to the hot babe from Alaska with the sexy tattoos inviting them to come visit me on my queer commune in rural Southern Oregon if they so pleased, you know?”
This week I got in bed with my kitten, Sam, proving to everyone that I can, in fact, get even more gay (how?!). We talk allergies and food and depression and losing a pet and we also watch Sam play and eat her treats. It is peak internet.
“You are so so soft and just achingly warm and good and I’m just dying with the urge to pin and grind and tease and make you even wetter for me, taste you in your bed.”
“Her dreams are just real nights at lesbian bars
And then she wakes up covered in a man
Wish I didn’t relate so much”
Queen of Bisexuality Kate Leth joined me in bed this week and talked about coming out as bisexual at age 11 via Sailor Moon (!!), feeling like you “aren’t gay enough,” bringing straight, cis partners to pride celebrations, and soooo much more. Plus, kittens.
“I am so glad I joined A+ (even though it led to me drinking literal vodka water)”
The editors are talking about the things that drive us bananas on television! Lucky for you, two of us are television experts and the other three of us have a bunch of feelings anyway. Also one of us has never seen The Hunger Games?? Come on in!
This week we all looked each other in the eyes and screamed, HOW DO WE EVEN DO THIS AND WHO ARE WE, EVEN? We talked about life-goals and the patriarchy, and then a baby kitten named Sam helped us all take a deep breath.
“I think I took on a lot more of that than I should have because I was already so prone to believe that I was crazy. That’s only half your fault.”
Design Director Sarah joins the Senior Eds around Riese’s coffee table in this Very Special Episode of A+ Inbox LIVE!
I went all the way to New York to get in bed with Gabby Rivera last week, and we talked all about body image, summertime feelings, and America Chavez. It RULED.
