Ladies, protect your orchids

The future of cosmetic surgery is here

By Aaryn Belfer
The vagina is awesome, literally; it's gorgeous, mysterious, multipurpose-functional and unique as all get out. I examined more Internet V the other day than Michelle Duggar's gynecologist, and I'll say right now that no two are alike.

2013 was out of this world

A look back at news that haunts

By Aaryn Belfer
The realities presented on Earth 1.0 haven't made me particularly hopeful; 2013 had its share of disappointments.

Life is dangerous

Drive fast and take chances (but be discriminating)

By Aaryn Belfer
Immediately after the deaths in a car crash of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker and his friend last month, the media wasted no time in turning the dialogue toward deeper introspection.

A common calendar for San Diego Unified?

It could happen soon

By Aaryn Belfer
If you're a parent of a child in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD), it's possible you've heard rumblings about the push for a new common calendar, a supposed modification of traditional and year-round calendars.

Thankfulness: a cynic’s attempt to be sunshinier

My temporary attempt to be more positive

By Aaryn Belfer
My husband is the optimist in our relationship. He's the yin to my yang. He's the glass-is-half-full to my fuck-that-glass-I-hate-that-glass-so-I-smashed-that-glass-on-the-floor-and-now-it's-empty-forever-and-you-can't-argue-it's-not.

Fundraising adoption fees: Fair or foul?

Crowd-sourced purchase of an African child raises moral questions

By Aaryn Belfer
How is it that we Americans go all the way around the world to "save" children but can't manage to do the same for those that are living in our cities?

A scary holiday story

Thumb-sucking intervention, a nightmare at Michael’s and the Christmas Creep

By Aaryn Belfer
There I was, standing amid rows and rows of Christmas decorations at Michael's. In early September. In the middle of a heat wave that buoyed my hot flashes and delivered to me a few weeks later a $445 electric bill (fuck you very much, SDG&E).

In child tug-o-war, everybody loses

Looking back at ‘Adoptive Couple vs. Baby Girl’

By Aaryn Belfer

Still aging (not in the least bit) gracefully

How I’m like my car’s tires

By Aaryn Belfer
In today's pain-free state, it doesn't begin to seem reasonable that I took a $2,200 ride in an ambulance to the hospital. But it was that bad. I'd diagnosed myself with something imminently terminal, and I wasn't going to wait around for the mister to show up and find me dead.

Going commando

When Decker’s away, the righteous chicks will play

By Aaryn Belfer
Poor Edwin Decker. I don't know which is worse. First, his column space gets co-opted by his better half, the wicked-smart Mizz W. (I've met her and can attest that Decker is playing up.) And now La Belfer has sneaked in to rearrange the furniture. Oh, the joy!
