Ann Mayburn
Special Guest Ann Mayburn With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD. Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she's weird and that sarcasm doesn't translate well via text. You can find her on Website, Facebook, Pintrest and Twitter.

Breaking Taboo- Valentines Special

My guest is Eva Morales, who grew up selling wilted flowers to unsuspecting tourists in Guatemala.

Today... she’s a writer who lives in an expansive villa in the Republic of Texas with her private militia and a gaggle of renegade chickens.

We discuss anti-valentines, 50 shades of middle aged kink, online dating: the pros and cons as well as how to make it work for you, and the upside and downside of being sexually active as we age.

OMG - My WHAT Got Sweaty?

I work out like a total beast at the gym. I figure if i'm going to take time out of my already busy schedule to run 6 miles and work the weights every morning then i'm going to make every last minute count, dammit! Which means i've had to come to terms with the fact that i sweat. A lot. I even have acrobatic flying sweat. Which has caused a no man's land perimeter to be set up around me by the other (non-sweaty) patrons. Smug bastards. Whatevah. Like a little sweat splatter ever killed anyone.

I've learned to not be self conscious about it. Or the fact that my face gets as red as my hair. There's a price to be paid, amiright? So what if I look like a flailing six year old when I run. And who cares if my nipples stand at attention through my sports bra. Pffft. Those two bitches get perky at any old excuse.

I'm used to this level of sweat... with bigger boobs of course...
and bigger ass... and my abs haven't looked like that in ever... but i digress.
But today... today it went too far. I wore a new shirt to the gym because my old black tee has gotten a tad baggy. While I ran I noticed the dark ring of sweat blossoming between my large and bouncy breasts. Noooo prob. I felt sweat run down my back and into the crack of my ass. Iz alright. It's fat crying, right? Or in my case, bawling like a hysterical infant. I can handle ALL of that.

What I can't handle is looking in the dressing room mirror and noticing that I have two perfectly symmetrical rings of nipple sweat standing out like carnival barkers, yelling for everyone to check out the slutty nipples with their come-hither hardness. Those bitches! How could they sweat on me? Who the hell ever heard of nipples sweating anyway? Breasts, yes. Asses, yes. Nipples, no! Just no.

Tomorrow I'm wearing my baggy black tshirt which at least has the decency to disguise the flagrant display.

      Yay for winning the technology battle!

      One of my favorite pics of Rick with his pal Robin
      Finally got the RSS feed software working and therefore could complete setting up new itunes for the shows. Seriously. It's taken months and several sessions with IT to get it straight.
      I have a reputation for having an adverse impact on anything electronic or computer related. So this is huge. lol!

      I'll be posting links as soon as itunes uploads the last show recorded (which you can access at and gives me a thumbs up on the setup.

      In the interim stay tuned next week for Breaking Taboo with comedian and actor Rick Overton. We'll be discussing Monsanto, activism and the power of da people. If you have any questions for Rick (or me) email me at lakotaphillips (at) gmail and we'll share any good ones on the show.

      In addition to being an amazing comedian and actor, Rick is a powerful advocate for people's rights.

      Pitfalls of Honesty

      Red Witch Silenced by Lakota
      I attended the morning session of a TEDx event and one of the speakers asked who liked their jobs and saw themselves doing it for the next two decades. Like an idiot i raised my hand and noted the vast sea of unraised hands around me. (To be fair, there were a handful pun intended... who also raised their hands. Out of 500 people.)

      She also asked who thought they'd make a good talk show host. Well. Given what i do, I of course raised my hand. In a room full of people sitting on their hands. It struck me then that i was being too honest.  Again. I looked like a dork in a room full of well behaved professionals, who knew better than to raise their hands.

      It's this problem i have. If asked a direct question I will automatically answer honestly. Even if the answer is uncomfortable to either myself, the asker, or both. I don't stop and think about that part. Will my answer benefit or harm the person asking? Do they have a right to the answer?

      Fed up with the fallout of my over abundant honesty, my family has tried to coach me on evasive answers. My son will even practice with me. It not that he's trying to teach me to lie, so much as he's trying to teach me to keep my mouth shut, and not automatically spill information.... especially when there are circumstances that make truth inappropriate or unwanted.

      I've said very inappropriate things in highly sensitive situations. Shocking I know. I have very few boundaries. My brain doesn't work quite like other people's and i don't have a high bar set for what is improper.  Okay  i don't have an improper bar at all. To be honest.

      Add to that the fact that I'm a terrible liar. One of those people who trips over their tongue and looks aghast if i try to lie. I ain't fooling no one. So why bother.

      But I am trying to learn discretion and the value of keeping my lips zipped, as well as accepting that lies of omission aren't really bad. Not REALLY. Especially when it's no one's goddamn business.

      But a lifetime of being bluntly honest is a hard habit to break.

      Functioning Under the Crush of Sorrow

      I've been crying sporadically this week for no apparent reason.
      Well, there is a reason. I've just been in denial over it. For two years now.

      A couple is murdered and i sit at my desk and sob.
      A fictional character dies and i have to take a break from reading so i can compose myself. That sort of thing. I'm usually much better at controlling myself.

      I have the process of locking things up in tiny boxes inside and hiding those boxes in deep, dark corners down to a freakin' science. It's how i learned to cope with things in life that are impossible to handle.

      It's not working this week. Possibly because it's the two year anniversary of my mother's passing. And i never really let myself cry. Just locked it all up and put it away so i could keep functioning.

      Last weekend at a party a woman was bitching about her mother, complaining about how fussy she is and what a bother. I had to walk away to keep myself from grabbing her and shaking her to make her understand that someday, she won't have a mother. It's inevitable. It's coming.

      I was told that the buried sorrow would eventually claw it's way to the surface and have to be dealt with. Yup. That was a truth. Now i have to function despite feeling like my heart and soul have been forcefully cracked open to free a river of tears that flows without regard to convenience. I was told it gets easier with time. That isn't true. Not this time. It gets worse.

      I miss her. So much.
      I wrap myself in her shawl and carry pieces of her jewelry with me to comfort myself, but there isn't any comfort to be found. I just have to wait i suppose, for the flood to ease so i can close the box lid again. Except maybe this time i won't push it into a dark corner and i won't lock it. This time i'll place it in a window sill where the sun can shine on the bright memories.

      In the interim i'll function the best i can, trying to hide the sorrow.
