I am a sex ＆ relationship advice columnist and most recently, the author of a book of essays titled Well, This Is Exhausting. AMA!
Probably because I grew up as one of 8 kids who needed a lot of attention--certainly not due to any moral shortcomings of my own--I am a writer. Mostly, I write about sex and relationships, but I also write humor pieces and screenplays that no one reads. I've written about butt play and bad dates for GQ for many, many years and I'm about to start writing a sex advice column for Bustle. (Send me your questions at [email protected]). I recently wrote a book of hopefully humorous essays about Brendan Fraser, growing up overweight, and why I love Shrek so much titled Well, This Is Exhausting.
In order to sound important I will also share that I have written for The Guardian, Allure, The Cut, Reductress, Refinery29 and more. Because one advice column isn't enough, I also have my own newsletter called Here's The Thing where I mostly just try to get everyone to ask their crush out or leave a bad partner. Because somehow all those outlets aren't enough for me, I actually do about 90% of my writing on Twitter, where everyone is begging me to log off. But all of this is pretty much irrelevant because the only thing I like talking about is those Progressive commercials about not becoming your parents.
