Hello there doe-eyed friend, this post isn't safe for work, unless you work from home at your dining room table listening to NPR and eating veggie quesadillas that you call Riese-adillas because they're just the ones Riese made for you last summer, like some of us. Moving on, do you have sex? What kind of sex do you have? What kind of sex are you talking about today? Today we're talking about this kind of sex. This is our story.
We spoke about toeing for the first A+ podcast, but that audio file got fucked up — too fucked for your earholes, but just audible enough to be transcribed. What follows is the transcript from that night in Big Bear, California last July, right after we'd taken Fireball shots and promised Grace we'd speak directly into the microphones cross our hearts amen.
Rachel: Grace, do you want to define "toeing" for our listeners?
Grace: Why don’t you define it?

You Have Reached A+ Content!
98% of the content on this website is available to everybody for free, but this is one of the 1-2 posts we publish each month just for Silver and Gold A+ members. We also publish an additional 2-3 posts a month available to all A+ members (Bronze, Silver and Gold). WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? Well, because...
We Need Your Help.
This might be an awkward way to ask for it, but here goes: we know you like Autostraddle, and we like you a whole lot too. Advertisers and investors, on the other hand? Well, independently-owned politically progressive LGBTQ women's media isn't exactly their thing. It's do or die for us now: either we shore up enough reader support to compensate for the slowdown in ad sales and increasing competition from corporate-owned LGBTQ media, or we shut down altogether.
That's why we've created Autostraddle Plus. It's a way for loyal readers like you to support the site for as little as $5 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one, A+ swag, podcasts, Insider "newsletters," and essays/interviews from the previously-very-hidden parts of our hearts, souls and pants. Best of all, you're helping us keep Autostraddle.com free for everybody — free of cost, and also free from the inevitable compromises made by sites that cater to marketers, not readers.
A+ is a sustainable way for queer people and allies to opt into a system that financially supports other queer people. With the support of readers like you, we can pay our writers, diversify our team and continue to coordinate the worldwide meet-ups that have changed so many lives.
