The Comment Awards Goes to a Newtist Colony

Hello, Cupids!

Until five minutes ago I thought that my wife and I were going hang gliding for Valentine’s Day because we have a Groupon. BUT! Change of plans. I finally convinced her that plummeting to our deaths wasn’t very romantic. What IS romantic is walking through the redwoods, right!? So now we’re gonna take a nature walk guided by a naturalist that culminates in a visit to a newtist colony – a colony of newts. Those people at the East Bay Park District are a hoot!

What are ya’ll doing for V-Day? Maree found some pretty gay poems you could recite to your person. Or you could have period sex, if the timings right. Or you could just treat yourself.

Erin made up a bunch of lesbian bars that we’ve all been to and Rory drew them.

Last week Sinclair Sexsmith talked about the view from the top. THIS week Alaina premiered Bottoms Up! And it ain’t about drinking, if ya know what I mean.

There’s still time to get an A+ membership with the super special Gal Pal and scissoring stickers!

Also Beyoncé! And Comments!
