Now taking suggestions

Out goal is to build a list of Houston-based (as well as state, national, international, and web-based) sexual resources. These can be related to health, identity, pleasure, reproduction, infection, function, improvement, or whatever else your dirty minds imagine.

We are looking for places to get tested for HIV or pregnancy, places to purchase condoms or adult novelties, the best lubes in town, where to learn about healthy sex and good sex, where to meet other singles, and where the older folks mingle. Our organization is for adults. We especially want to be inclusive of older adults, although the young folk will not be neglected.

We want to provide accurate and accessible information and references. Please submit suggestions for inclusion to info@cootchie.org.

Also, anyone with knowledge of web-design who wants to help us build a real live site on the cheap (tax write-off if we can raise the $350 for non-profit status) can also contact us there. We sold our text books to buy the site only to realize we didn't know the first thing to do with it so instead started building a blog instead. Please, help us.

P.S. Sally Struthers' mascara says that for only $70 you can buy 1000 condoms for little old ladies. You know you want to.

Cootchie is born!
