  • Why Inappropriate Isn't Appropriate

    When you don't want to talk about a subject, you call that topic or question: "inappropriate." When you want to shut down what someone is thinking, feeling, or worrying about, you call it: "inappropriate." I hear the effects of this in classrooms daily.

  • Romantic or Realist?

    I won't make you read until the end to figure out my answer. I believe that the answer is actually an important starting point. So, drum roll please, I am a realist. I am not a romantic. I get that this may come as a surprise considering my professional field is human sexuality and relationships.

  • Thoughts for My 50-Year-Old Self

    I have a big birthday coming up in March. No, not 50-big, but I am on my way there. And while there are lots of lessons that I would like to impart to my children, I believe that it is ok to be a bit selfish -- in this case, to worry about myself.

  • What I Learned About Myself When I Ran Into My Ex After 18 Years

    What type of person do we want to be when we run into someone from our emotional past? It's easy to say that we want the superficial things: money, beauty, success. But that's not what I mean. Who do we really want to be?

  • A Penn Grad's Response to the NYT's 'Sex on Campus'

    I am upset that yet another article about campus hookups suggests that women's empowerment is being achieved through merely "acting like stereotypical men."

  • Anne Frank, Puberty and... Pornography?

    I was 10 when I read The Diary of Anne Frank. As a Jewish girl, I grew up with the story of Anne. She could have been me; she could have been any of us. The idea that this work could be deemed pornographic is beyond insulting.
