They bring us full circle  back to sex as a meaning-making meeting of two souls for the purposes of personal growth and development. Sex Therapy Los Angeles

CA State Assemblyman Resigns

The Los Angeles Times reports that State Assemblyman Mike Duvall resigned on Wednesday, Sepbember 9 after his lewd comments about women he had been sexually involved with were inadvertently broadcast over an open microphone during a lull in a Sacramento hearing in July.
