Playwright Shirlene Holmes calls theater “a place to do divine things.” In that same vein, Holmes, who has authored the work A Lady and A Woman, strongly believes in the theater’s capacity to produce social change.

First up is the total babe and…
Welcome to NSFW Sunday!
+ Rough sex can be just so much fun:
“Madison Young, sexpert, feminist, pornographer, and author of ‘Daddy: A Memoir’ notes that that there’s little point in subscribing to ‘societal expectations of how someone else thinks I should be having sex.’ Which is a good point. Certainly the realm of the erotic would be far more limited and boring if we all adhered to a prescribed set of sexual guidelines.
