About this author

I was born in Boston and overprotected in the nearby suburb of Newton. I thought I would be an artist when I grew up.

“I know this sounds incredibly lame,
but I don't want losing my virginity
to feel like I'm losing something.
I want it to feel like I'm finding something.
I want sex to be amazing.
I want it to be life-alteringly wonderful.

I give him one back”
