10 Foods to Fight Breast Cancer

October was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But just because leaves are largely fallen and pumpkins are patching up doesn’t mean that breast cancer awareness should wait another year. The Center for Disease Control shares that breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in all women and the […]

7 Misconceptions About Conception

Infertility is a major bitch. It can seem like an almost endless font of emotions, misconceptions, fears, and at times complete and utter despair for the women and men who suffer through it. For women of a certain age who are not yet even trying for babies, it can swing […]

5 Best Books for Green Beauty

Life is good for green beauty. We have boutiques for easy shopping and sites for learning more about eco products. But sometimes, it is nice to settle in with a good book to educate ourselves. (Especially with ones printed on recycled paper!) Luckily, there are a lot of fantastic books […]

How to Buy Organic and Natural Makeup Before Your Head Explodes

When I first started learning about organic makeup, I pictured butterflies alighting on biodynamic fields of lavender and organic rose petals magically ground into lipsticks. And yes, maybe it is like that – somewhere, in someone’s pretty organic fantasyland. In reality, the world of organic cosmetics is much more like […]

Sex by Numbers: Groundhog Day

Column Facts are facts. It’s Groundhog Day, which, if nothing else, means you have a legitimate excuse to watch what is inarguably the last great film Harold Ramis ever directed. It also provides a thin and tired narrative frame for us to hang an assortment of sex facts from, and […]

Yep, It’s Really All About the Breasts

Breasts are big in America. And I’m not just talking physically, though in my town of Hollywood, you’re more likely to see more silicone than they used to make the space shuttle – on one woman, no less. Breasts have achieved a place in our mental oeuvre than seem to […]

5 Favorite Lipsticks for Fall

We’re on the cusp of fall turning to winter. For this year, we’re hunkering down in sweaters and knee-high boots while nursing a fervent desire to see Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. (Congratulations, you crazy kids!). And since this is also a time of cooler temperatures, it means we’re […]

Sex and Intimacy: What’s Love Got To Do With It? Sexual Healing

Intimacy is a word that we bandy about, but we rarely grapple with its more challenging implications. Intimacy is also the issue that lady mags tend to frame as the key to healthy relationships, and however true this is, not all of us are currently in a relationship. (And many […]

The Importance of Weight-Bearing Activity for Bone Health

Osteoporosis is a big deal for women. But there’s more involved in keeping your bones strong and healthy than just eating plenty of calcium. Weight-bearing activity (exercise on your feet that works your bones and muscles against gravity) is crucial to building and maintaining optimal bone mass. Here’s why: Bone […]

Ecosalon Recipes: DIY Nutty Cranberry Maple Granola

I’ve been making my own granola for years now. It’s much cheaper and fresher than store-bought and it’s easy to change it up in innumerable ways to fit your mood or your tastes. In fact, I’ve become completely spoiled by my granola. Whenever my cupboard is bare and I don’t […]

The Love Letters Project #5: Voltaire and Catherine Olympe Dunoyer

A love letter from Voltaire to Catherine Olympe Dunoyer. Who better to write the world’s most memorable love letters than the world’s most famous writers? Picture a teenage François-Marie Arouet, imprisoned (as he would be many times) for his convictions. And the cause this time? His love of French refugee Catherine […]

Respect the Breast

I hope you’re not one of those people who squirms when a mother breastfeeds her baby in public, because I’m one of those publicly breastfeeding mothers. If that makes you uncomfortable, well, talk to the breast! There is no better food for babies than breast milk, of course, so it’s […]

Redefining Cougar Women: Sexual Healing

 If you learned everything you know about “cougar women” from “The Graduate” or even “Sex and the City,” you’re still woefully ignorant about a very common dating scenario. There’s nothing predatory about older women dating younger men. The Mrs. Robinson myth is alive and well, despite major cultural shifts in […]

Feminists Walk Among Us

Why won’t feminists call themselves feminists? I am a feminist. This is because I think women are the superior gender. Men are nothing but boorish flanks of meat, flogging about our planet trashing everything. War, pollution, hunger, disease, and nail polish can all be blamed on men. Now someone get […]

GINK Is the New DINK: Going Childfree for Mother Nature

If green parenting web sites, organic applesauce, and reusable diapers are any indication, eco mommies are on the rise. But so are women who say that even baby feet leave a major carbon footprint. And they’re opting not to have children as a result. Last year, Oregon State University released […]

Step Right Up for a Natural Summertime Glow

The sun is our friend. Except when it gives us wrinkles. And sun spots. And skin cancer. But of course we love the sun and every wrinkle and blemish it gave us while we kayaked/hiked/skied/biked under its rays. But anyone who has peeled their skin off in black, burnt chunks […]

Women Dating Younger Men: Why It’s Hot

Women face a lot of double standards. Dating younger men is one of them.  Age ain’t nothing but a number. Somebody famous said that. It’s true. We’re really only as young or old as we feel. And anyone can drop dead at any second, so it’s not like being a […]
