New Sex and Relationship Book Release: No-Bone Zone

I'm excited to announce the release of my latest book, No-Bone Zone: The Ins and Outs of Curing Long-Term Relationship Boredom. This book has been in conceptual development since my days as an undergraduate psychology student studying to be a human sexuality researcher, but became a realized dream about six months ago. Like The Barefoot Running Book, Never Wipe Your Ass with a Squirrel, Must Have Been Another Earthquake, Kids (a book about full-time RV living with children), and The Ultimate Guide to Trail Running and Ultramarathons (which was released about a month ago,) No-Bone Zone takes the idea of creative self-experimentation with unorthodox ideas and utilizes it to make our sex and relationship adventures more interesting, exciting, and fulfilling. 
Here's the official description:
So you and your significant other used to go at it like rabbits, but now your sex life has cooled off and you have entered the dreaded No-Bone Zone. How do you fix your mismatched sex drives …

Don't Like the World? Change It.

I've been involved in a few Facebook discussions over the last few weeks, which isn't necessarily news-worthy. After all, it's kind of my social media MO. However, I have noticed a particularly annoying trend: 
Lots of people seem to be passionate (or fixated) on or about one particular issue, yet really do nothing to improve the issue or situation.
Back when I was a teacher, one of my goals was to teach the idea that any one of us has the power to make a dent in the universe. I've continued to operate under that belief since traveling the country and eventually settling down in San Diego. It always seemed like a fairly straight-forward concept, but far too many people, for a wide variety of reasons, choose to merely complain about the status quo.
That's bullshit.
Here are a few of the more common excuses I hear:

"I don't have time.""I don't have a degree.""I have children.""The 'man' is holding me down.""…

Six Month Plan: Vegas, New Books, MMA, and That Elusive Video Podcast

Since finishing Grindstone in 2012, I've kept a fairly low profile. Shelly and I needed to back away from the running scene and get some much-needed R&R after years of heavy immersion in the barefoot and ultrarunning world. I haven't been a total slacker, but I haven't been doing much to change the world. That's about to change. Here are my plans for the next six months or so: The first of my two new books will be released soon. The Ultimate Guide to Trail Running and Ultramarathons (Skyhorse, 2014) will be released in November. This book is essentially an expanded, refined, and tamed-down version of Never Wipe Your Ass with a Squirrel. The second book, the self-published sex and relationship book tentatively titled No-Bone Zone: The Ins and Outs of Curing Sexual Boredom, will be released sometime in early November. I'm really excited about this title because it will help a lot of people that are seemingly stuck in a relationship where the flames of passion hav…
