New post on my non-profit startup blog: Enthusiastic Consent and the Board of Directors.
Thinking theoretically about who to invite to the Effing Foundation inaugural Board of Directors and drafting an informative invitation was one thing. Actually being Out On The Hunt has turned out to be more complicated than I had expected. (Although by now, you’d think I’d have learned that I should expect nothing to go like I expect.) …
My friend Dr. X. Treme of Orgasmatronics, Inc., sent me a Master Beta Kit to review in advance of their crowdfunding campaign. The TLDR: I’m extremely excited about this kit! Finally, I have something sex-positive I can recommend for absolute beginners who want to start working with electronics and the Arduino platform.

Nerds engaging in slut shaming:

Behold: my sex-positive nonprofit’s Strategic Plan!
At Arisia 2015, Jimmie P. Rodgers (@jprodgers) and I hosted a teasecraft meetup and gave a presentation entitled “Fun with Silicone!” We covered some basics of casting and moldmaking specific to working with body-safe silicone, and we also touched on body casting and some advanced casting techniques.
Here are the notes from our talk (presented as a slide deck):
Video to come, pending any technical difficulties.
As I try to put together a budget and financial projections for my new nonprofit, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the data that I’ve pulled together on non-mainstream crowdfunding sites. Go check it out on the Passionate Produce blog!
TLDR: I have a new preferred name and preferred pronouns. As of January 1, 2015, I’m asking people to call me “Kit,” and to refer to me using the pronouns they/their (and other gender-neutral terms).
