Thirty Thousand Days
- Susannah Indigo
"Personally, I'd like to think that somewhere around day 30,001 we all get evaluated on just the basic things -- how many days did we really listen?

Somewhere I Have Never Travelled - by Susannah Indigo
"The high is continued, and the sex is other-worldly, and
there is a soulful, ecstatic, pleasure zone that I have
entered that is not on anybody's list of things to do before
they die, but should be the first, middle and last item in
every single life as we travel through our days, welcoming
the erotic, the exotic, the ordinary, and the incredible
realm of the unknown."

allow them to relocate next to a sewage treatment plant in outer Queens."

The Simple Road To Ignorance - by Jaie Helier (12/06/00)
- "I live in Australia --
land of sun-bronzed bodies, golden beaches, helping your mates and
a fair go for all. So why write about censorship? Surely, in a healthy

completely neurotic and desperately seeking Mr. Right, while
fucking their brains out and constantly wondering if they can
'have it all.'"

instant and I had to choose, which would I prefer, my better than sex
moment, or mad lust with one of them?"

by Debra Hyde (5/3/00)
- "Teens are hungry for sexual information and, in
educating my own kids, I know they encounter a lot of
misinformation and guesswork about sex before they get
to the truth. Today, that's downright dangerous. So I'm
glad there's site like Scarleteen out there."
