Culture Shock

By Erin Adair-Hodges

Get Out

Though it’s still winter break for some, there are plenty of artists who can’t sit still. ADD? Nah (well, not diagnosed, anyway). Think of it as creative urges that refuse to be contained.

What resource do we speak of? None other than the groundbreaking book The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy.
