The Pirates Lair Sacred Archives

We get a lot of requests for specific articles and/or reviews I've written in the past. Rather than fry my aging aging brain trying to remember where they are on our multi-hundred page website, I have decided to list the "worthy" ones here. Most of the links are to past newsletters.. Some are to full web articles. Remember.. I'm no expert on anything except perhaps cunnilingus and/or rolling doobies so the opinions within are only my own. So it is written.. so let it be done..

Feel free to share any of the reviews or articles I have posted here. All I ask is to at least give us (or Pirates Lair) credit for it and or post a link to our site. No need to ask our permission. Enjoy.
