Cover story, Feb. 14, "Sex Lake City"
What an enlightening article, while I think I am an open-minded and accepting person, not sure how to react!
Exactly what are the safe ways to use fire?
Fire-cupping is one kind of fire-play, popularized by swimmers in the Olympics with rings on their backs. Wax and fire-play involve bursts of heat, but without actually burning the skin.
I love bringing sex positivity into the light! If you want to take a first step in exploring some consent education and connection for yourself in a platonic setting, Salt Lake also hosts regular cuddle parties.
Lost me at "Utah culture teaches sex is only for procreation."
Utah is better at kink than Las Vegas.
I didn't really need to see that swing.

News, Feb. 14, "Bikes, Scooters and Cars, Oh My!"
[E-bikes were] created for people whose parents cleaned up for them as kids. Users leave them everywhere—in the middle of sidewalks blocking access for those with disabilities, on other people's lawns and other places where they don't belong and aren't wanted. And don't get me started in safety issues. As a pedestrian, I've been nearly run down twice by irresponsible users. I want fewer cars and less pollution, too, but this business model sucks.
These damn things are everywhere, lol.
Just stay the hell off sidewalks!
Yasss! What are those dumb bike lanes for anyway?
Urban Living, Feb. 14, "Practice What You Preach"
Utah's state government motto: Do it our way. We know what's best for you. Shut up, be happy! Here's what's next: Anyone caught outside after curfew will be shot. The police will be by your home to collect blood samples in the morning. If you interfere with this process you will be shot. Shut up, be happy!
Opinion, Feb. 7, "Utah's Legislators: Gone Rogue"
But you know none of them will be voted out. They know that, and this is how they know they can get away with it. The people in this state tend to vote against their own best interests.

We need a better education system surrounding voting and the people who are running for office. We need people out there volunteering and educating the population of who is running, their past achievements, etc. And most importantly, we need people to run for office that don't bow down to the LDS church's every wish just to earn a quick $$$.
The majority of them are trying to amass as much money as they can while in office ... we the voters, will be ignored. They have no respect for democracy or the real reason for their jobs ... honoring their constituents.

Feb. 12, Protestors gather ahead of Vicente Fox's speech
No one ever has said they don't support border security. Just the pointless wall. Waste of time and the environment.
Thay took our jerbs!
Translation: "I support racism!"
Again, how is a wall racist? I'm really not arguing with you, just trying to see what you see.
How? Wasting $5.7 billion to only say "Look, I'm keeping the brown people out." Yeah, racist. This is not going to stop any illegal immigration. If they want to do something, hire more border agents.
All old white crusty dudes.
Online News Post, Feb. 16, What's next for old Sears location?
They should make it into a proper functioning halfway house with job skill training and all.
That's a no-brainer:. An eight-story apartment complex.
So many possibilities. Sadly, we'll probably see more mediocrity in terms of architecture and design.
I hope someone salvages those pink stone outer walls!
