Thirty, dirty and striving

Revisiting my teenage dreams upon hitting three decades

By Alex Zaragoza
I'm 30 years old. It's official. That milestone birthday's been lurking, and when it finally arrived I welcomed it as I'd welcome a never-ending nacho platter—drunkenly and without fear.

Surviving womanhood

How Krav Maga empowered me to fight violence and misogyny

By Alex Zaragoza
I often find myself in situations where I don't feel safe, not because I have a penchant for hanging out in sketchy neighborhoods, but because that's the world women live in. That's not paranoia.

How Gozie got her groove back

Catching the clap at a dance contest was the best thing ever

By Alex Zaragoza
The thing about most slumps is that they can be conquered, and the moment mine ended came in true Gozer fashion —shaking dat ass hard on a dance floor.

Gooping like Gwyneth

Consciously uncoupling and self-improving, Paltrow-style

Breakups blow, especially when there are hurt feelings and disappointment involved and that bitch Gwyneth Paltrow steals your breakup thunder.

Floating in heartbreak

Looking for answers in a sensory-deprivation tank

By Alex Zaragoza
Fans of floatation therapy do it for a number of reasons. Some go for stress relief and to achieve total relaxation, others do it to help with pain. I was there for the third reason floatation therapy has become popular: to allow your brain to be completely clear and focus on something with zero distractions.

A hot date with my vagina

Treat yourself—and your lady business—to some good lovin’

By Alex Zaragoza
I'll admit that my masturbation sessions usually involve lying in bed in a slovenly fashion with Parks & Recreation paused on the TV. It's not the sexiest thing in the world.

Women aren’t funny? Bitch, please!

Standing up to tired gender inequality with dick jokes

By Alex Zaragoza
"Women aren't funny." How many times have we heard that? When I hear it now, it's like seeing a laserdisc player. I think, This still exists?

Confronting fear by consulting the stars

An astrologist told me to trust my wine-soaked gut

By Alex Zaragoza
Fear is very hard to overcome when you feel vulnerable. Should I even trust my gut? That thing's probably pickled in wine and high-fructose corn syrup.

Barefoot and stoned in Hippieville

Boulder and my college roommate are delightfully kooky

By Alex Zaragoza
"That one looks like an elephant doing ballet. Or wait, no. It's playing a guitar. Hold up. I was wrong. It's a T-Rex smoking a joint. Dude, I'm super-fucking-high." This is a direct quote from an incredibly stoned version of me.

Hunting g-g-g-ghosts with a juggalo paranormal investigator

My mom and Jay Willard keep me curled up at night

By Alex Zaragoza
The spirit world is an integral part of Mexican culture. I grew up listening to creepy ghost stories, terrified but unable to keep from asking, "And then what happened?"
