Ivan of the Puba Network(@IamIvanxxx) introduced me to Arika Lane (@AkiraLane) who introduced me to Migliori personal lubricant. All this took place while enjoying the XRCO awards on the patio at Ohm nightclub in Hollywood, California. It is like living a domino effect in real-time. Every adult industry gathering provides for great networking opportunities.
Migliori products make me excited(pun intended).
Finally, a lube that addresses the fact women need to moisturize from the inside. I have searched for a lube with additional health benefits besides making bedroom fun more pleasurable. Over the years, I have found coconut oil to be the best lube and great for moisturizing with many other health/beauty benefits. However, the downside is coconut oil can cause holes in condoms or for them to completely break. This is a huge drawback to using coconut oil as lube and internal moisturizer, because no one wants to use a condom just to have it break and/or get a hole.
My lube research adventure begins. Wish me luck and please reach out to tell me how you decide what lube to use? What is your favorite brand? Why? What do you expect out of your lube?
Here I sit in my bed at home in Las Vegas writing on my new laptop. My birthday was last Friday and over the weekend was Exxxotica Denver, so it has been busy to say the least. Plus, I recently got a new rescue dog so leaving home for a work trip was extremely more difficult than normal.
In my daily life, I am ordinary and work from home mostly alone and love it. After years in dark bars surrounded by drunken people who are unpredictable, I enjoy being in a controlled environment. Conventions are the part of my career I push myself to go out of my comfort zone and be surrounded by people again. My nerves are apparent, but I doubt people know why I am nervous. It took me till this past weekend to realize going out of my ordinary controlled environment I have created here in Las Vegas causes me social anxiety. I love to travel and go places for fun, but mix in work and having to talk to people and I turn into a bit of a wreck.
After this realization I felt a bit of relief, but I cannot say I have found a solution. Today has been a day of self-care and loving myself for conquering my comfort zone. Starbucks, laser hair removal, chiropractor, quality time with the dogs, and a trip to the medical marijuana dispensary have all been apart of my day of getting back into my ordinary groove. I love my life at home and have finally created a life I do not feel like I need a vacation from.
This book is dear to my heart. My magazine columns, journals, and tips on how to survive the adult industry are all included. I hope this book makes a great ripple effect in some peoples lives and careers.
Special thank you to Robert Bryant for being an amazingly patient book editor.
Mitchell Murphy and Heath Stillwell thank you for years of being amazing magazine editors and putting up with my kind of crazy!
