About this author

Valerie is a former TV personality and calendar model turned sexuality writer and cultural critic. Her life has been a most unconventional combination of gritty realism and surreal glamour, with a heavy sprinkling of sex, a dose of white collar crime, and an occasional appearance from a higher power that may either be God or the effects from the martinis she often finds herself in the company of.

She has a passion for exploring social behavior, addressing faulted cultural perceptions and advocating healthy, intelligent sexuality through creative storytelling.

Nomadic since her upbringing as a military child, she is never in one place for too long, but she can often be found (not far from her laptop) in New York, Los Angeles, and occasionall

Although he is undoubtedly and experienced and educated man, does he deserve opportunity while those that suffered through his mistakes and don’t have the same deep pockets remain in financial distress and social exile?

“I was in the winter of my life- and the men I met along the road were my only summer. At night I fell sleep with visions of myself dancing and laughing and crying with them. Three years down the line of being on an endless world tour and memories of them were the only things that sustained me, and my only real happy times. I was a singer, not a very popular one, who once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet- but upon an unfortunate series of events saw those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky that I wished on over and over again- sparkling and broken. But I really didn’t mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is.

When the people I used to know found out what I had been doing, how I had been living- they asked me why. But there’s no use in talking to people who have a home, they have no idea what its like to seek safety in other people, for home to be wherever you lay your head.

“How is it that we can punish women who are paid by politicians yet allow freedom and forgiveness to the politicians who pay them? The irony of the situation is that if we allow Sptizer’s deep pockets to buy his way back into our homes and hearts, then it’s not young women he hired who are whores, it’s the people of New York.”

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
Helen Keller, The Open Door

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

“Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don't have to live forever, you just have to live.”
Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

“On top of the abuse and neglect, denial heaps more hurt upon the child by requiring the child to alienate herself from reality and her own experience. In troubled families, abuse and neglect are permitted; it's the talking about them that is forbidden.”
Marcia Sirota

“I have no objection to anyone’s sex life as long as they don’t practice it in the street and frighten the horses.”
