Another amazing shot from Tasmania

This is the Gordon River Dam. It’s in Tasmania, which is an island about 150 miles south of the Australian mainland. It holds a crapload of water, making it the largest lake in Australia. This incredible image was taken by Micnical, a Tasmanian dad and surfer.

FREE Chapter: Intersex Conditions

Intersex is when a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t fit the typical definitions of female or male. Many people with intersex conditions look typically male or female on the outside, but inside there may be some blending of the parts we call male...

Welcome to the Coast of Oregon!

This is the coast of Oregon near our home, taken by my wife (Toni Johnson) with her iPhone being held in one hand, while one of our 100-lb livestock guard dogs was pulling her along the beach, wanting to chase the waves.

Bull Elk Having a Snack

This bull is a Roosevelt elk having a bite to eat in our pasture. There’s one bull per herd of cows, but the bulls usually don’t stay with the cows. They will generally be on higher ground, keeping an eye out for trouble. Bulls have a very distinct bugle...

Anemones—Sex Maniacs of the Sea

This anemone lives at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, which is about 20 minutes from where we live. (My wife, Toni, snapped this with her iPhone.) I couldn’t help but wonder if anemones are all one sex, or if there are males and females. That’s when I learned there are not...

Sea Lions napping on the pier in Newport

These are some of the sea lion males having a snooze on the docks up at Newport, the next town up from where we live. The local sea lions are all males. They swim down to Northern California at the end of summer for a chance to fight off...

When Sex Always Hurts

Few men understand how painful sex can be for some women. This isn’t pain from sex that’s rushed or rough. It’s more like when a Q-tip is pressed against a woman’s genitals and it causes her to flinch in pain. Or when intercourse with a gentle lover creates...

The bay at the end of our road

We live on a gravel road on a remote bay on the coast of Oregon. Here’s the bay at sunset. The bridge in the distance is part of US 101. My wife took this shot with her iPhone. There’s zero Photoshopping. This is how it actually looks in...

Yaquina Bay Bridge

This is the bridge we take to go to Newport, which is where we get groceries, supplies, gas and see movies. It’s about 20 minutes away. It was completed in 1936, and has a great Art Deco/Goth look. It’s a little more than 3,000 feet long and sits...

FREE Chapter: Your Vagina—Population In the Trillions

The health of every woman’s vagina depends on a complex world of bacteria and other organisms that’s called a microbiome. But few women or men have ever heard of this. Here’s a fascinating and easy to read explanation about the population of trillions of organisms that live in...

Tasmanian Surf Thru the Eyes of Stu Gibson

You’ll be hard pressed to find surf photography that’s more amazing than the work of Stu Gibson from Tasmania. According to Mr. Gibson, “My main passions are surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding. But my photos are more than 90% surfing. I was practically born surfing so it’s hard to...

FREE Chapter: Birth Control–Sperm v. Egg

In the United States, 49% of pregnancies in women under the age of 34 are neither planned nor intended. The number rises to 75% for women over 40, and a whopping 80% of teen pregnancies are not wanted. Two-out-of-three unplanned teenage pregnancies happen to girls between the ages...

The dreaded liver shot

Mark Munoz took this kick from Eric Simpson, and he still won the match. MMA photographer Esther Linn did a great job of capturing the impact that a well placed kick can have, but the camera does not always tell the truth. This has all the markings of...
