Going into my vasectomy, I was much more concerned with the pain afterwards, and the length of the recovery. But the worst part about the whole experience ended up being the vasectomy procedure itself.Read More
It’s an extremely personal question and at the same time - one we all need to be openly discussing way more than we are now…..that stupid dilemma about pregnancy and fertility that most sexually active adults face.Read More
I wrote my own motherfucking ideas about what love is because this is what I know to be true. That is what I want other's to know is possible for them. That love is cuddles and rainbows and that if you're regularly giving each other the silent treatment and hurting each other's feelings and accepting this as the norm simply because you're in a long term relationship....it doesn't have to be like that.

Reality Rehab is, in a nutshell, the manual for life we all wish we would have been given a long time ago. The basic fundamental life skills surrounding communication, sex, friendships, relationships, food, health and money we wish they would've taught us in school. All the things that, when you learn them, make you exclaim: Why didn't anyone tell me this?

I used to be 100% mainstream. Blindly fumbling through life just trying to do what the system prescribed for me. You know, go to college, get married, get a good job, buy a house, a car, work your ass off every day, take a few long weekends off here and there, and hopefully have enough saved up so that I can retire someday. Maybe if I get lucky I’ll be able to travel to Europe for a couple weeks while I’m still young enough to enjoy it.Read More
I still can’t believe it’s 2016 and we don’t have better birth control options. It’s either take some crazy fake hormones, or have some foreign body inserted in your uterus, or chart your cycles and risk having an abortion. Ultimately I ended up getting an IUD because it wasn’t fake hormones (I got the copper one) and it didn’t mess with your cycle - you still bled and ovulated and all that as per usual.Read More
Now I was in a strangers house, googling divorce, making an appointment for an abortion, trying to find a place to live, and figuring out how long the money I had was going to last me (I had quit my job in prep to move to D.C.)Read More
How a man shows up during labor and birth (and postpartum - don’t even get me started) sets the foundation for his family and for his role as a father.Read More
Kris said later that there was a period there where I didn’t speak for some hours. And that was a weird feeling. It was like when surgery patients describe being numbed and put under but they’re not actually and so the surgeon starts cutting and they can feel everything but they can’t open their mouth to say anything because they’re stuck between worlds.Read More
Over the past couple of months I have encountered multiple situations that have caused me to stop and think about my sexuality and what it means to me. And by sexuality, I don’t mean sexual orientation, but rather who I am sexually attracted to and why. I have noticed that the types of people that I identify on paper as an ideal sexual partner are different than the types of people that I have recently found myself sexually attracted to in real life.Read More
Over the past few years I have encountered lots of people who claim to be polyamorous only to hear them explain a few minutes later that their definition of poly means they live at home with a spouse and children, and occasionally they go on dates and/or have sex with another person on the side who never meets the spouse and never knows the family. This is not the same thing as polyamory, this is simply an open relationship, and I feel like the two often get lumped together in a very confusing and frustrating way.Read More
Here is a quick list of things you can do as a man to be a good relationship partner. From polarity to affection to basic respect - these are all things I wish someone would have hammered into my thick skull when I was 23 but instead it took me until I was about 35 to figure it out on my own. So here's an opportunity to learn from someone else's mistakes!Read More
