Best of P-Mag: Yellow Fever: Dating As An Asian Woman

Lauren sMash is another amazingly talented writer, whose work has consistently knocked my socks off. I thought this was one of the best pieces that thoroughly debunks the whole “exotic-fetishization-of-your-race-as-a-compliment” and what it’s like to navigate the dating world as a person who’s desired as a stereotype, not as a whole person. – Coco Papy Read More Best of P-Mag: Yellow Fever: Dating As An Asian Woman

Best of P-Mag: Porn ““ To X or Not to X

I love this piece because it asks questions about something that most of us have conflicted feelings on. I love pron! I hate money shots! Buck Angel is awesome! Buck Angel is a dick! Oooh, sex! OOOOOh, thats not sex! Nothing inspires a good, hearty conversation like the place of porn in our culture and Rosa does an amazing job at touching all the points. – Coco Papy Read More Best of P-Mag: Porn ““ To X or Not to X

Best of P-Mag: The Power of Being a Promiscuous Woman

Miz J, Miz J, Miz J: I will never not forgive this woman for raising the bar on being real. As a woman who’s had her sex life used to define her all her life, Miz J’s piece came at a particular time when I said, “Fuck it. I am promiscuous. I identify as a slut-whore-ho. What are you gonna do about it?” Look at the way she just mauls the double-standard apart! The way she talks about how we learn to navigate sex and sexual expectation through a culture that’s already against us. Miz J deserves a star in heaven for helping me understand better the nature of my sexual classification, how to take it back, and how to whoop ass with it. – Coco Papy Read More Best of P-Mag: The Power of Being a Promiscuous Woman

Best of P-Mag: Awkwardette’s Ill-Advised Guide to Getting it On: Crazy in Love

I first read this piece when I was coming to terms with my own, actual “crazy” (note to readers: I’m a fan of reclaiming my own cray, but I refrain from putting that on anyone else). Not only is the piece humorous, but it looks at one of the greatest tortures of all: dating in New York City.  It still remains one of my favorites because of it’s nothing short of brutal honesty, take no prisoners approach. – Coco Papy Read More Best of P-Mag: Awkwardette’s Ill-Advised Guide to Getting it On: Crazy in Love
