Best of 2013

by Jason Stotts As we go into Erosophia’s 9th year, let’s take a step back and see what we did in 2013. Last year was a very busy year for me and Erosophia.  Although Erosophia didn’t place in the top 100 Sex Blogs last year, there were still some really great things that happened and […]
