After eleven years living, dancing, teaching tango, and writing in Buenos Aires, I came home to L.A. in 2014, where I'm reconstructing my life.

Practical Fashion

One of my favorite blogs, Random Good Stuff, highlighted a fashion show at the Reproductive Health and Technologies expo in China this year which showed the latest dresses made entirely out of condoms.

Now I delight in over-the-top fancies of this sort, because I so firmly believe in the importance of women taking charge of their own sexual health. (In fact to that end, some years ago I started a women's sexual health company in Los Angeles called, vive la difference! But that's a whole other blog!)

The thing is down here in Buenos Aires, I see a lot. I've been going to the milongas for more than ten years, and when I don't dance, I watch. I also listen to my women friends. And I see various problems making their rounds in the milongas.

For foreign women coming here to dance (and often leaving all reason at home), wearing one of these dresses might be a good reminder to all of us to take care with our bodies.
