Sexually Empowered Cookout

Here we are enjoying a summer cookout with friends and a deck of cards suddenly appeared. The sweet round of Sexversations went so well with the guacamole... you should give it a try!
Here's what you'll need.
1. Peeps. It can be a small yet incredibly enthusiastic group of 2 up to how ever many you have room for at your par-tay.
2. Deck of Sexversations.
3. Guacamole dip (2 avocados, 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes, 1/4 cup finely chopped onions, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, juice of 1 lime, couple dashes of salt, a few shakes of your favorite hot sauce. Mix together and mmm...enjoy!)
4. Chips and veggies for dipping.
5. Your favorite beverage, we recommend an ice cold cerveza.

I wonder how many other summer cookouts include a group of friends gathered 'round the patio engaged in a colorful discussion about everything from sex education and the legitimacy of born again virginity to an interesting difference of opinion about what happens in Cabo, should/should not stay in Cabo? It's very liberating!

Whatever this 4th of July weekend was for you I hope it turned out even better than you expected. With all the flags, fireworks and freedom filled stories I'm feeling most thankful. While driving home last night with the fireworks bursting in the sky and the American flag displayed on cars, raised in front of buildings and neighborhood front porches I could not help but smile and feel proud. I don't need a flag or a cookout to remind me of our Independence, though it is quite nice and I do enjoy seeing the red, the white and the blue everywhere. But put all the frills of the 4th aside and I am still proud. Not just today but everyday.
I can still remember (most of) the Declaration of Independence, thanks to my 4th grade teacher, Ms. Flament. So here's to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Let freedom ring!
