bonjour-clarice:

One of my ex-colleague and friend just launched his own company, Carrot & Peanut’s Wonderwear. I thought I would tell you about them since they’re innovative, creative and offer quality products.
Carrot & Peanuts produce comfortable and light male underwear - I haven’t tried them since I’m a woman, but the “guinea-pigs” who did approved!!
Through the company, Carrot & Peanuts also supports The Nitya Seva, and orphanage in India - country where their products are tailored.
Carrot & Peanuts founders are Belgian but are based in Berlin, Germany. They started the company barely a month ago and already had a lot of orders - good sign!
So if you don’t know what to offer to your boyfriend / brother / dad /male friend for Christmas, think of Carrot & Peanut’s Wonderwear! ;)
If you want to have a look at their products and learn more about the company, check their website out :

Being Fruitful Without Multiplying adds an important voice to the ongoing discussions regarding women’s reproductive choices. The authors have impressively gathered stories from women around the world of all age groups who each share their own intimate reasons for choosing not to procreate. The collection celebrates the opportunities its contributors have gained from their decisions and illustrates the many affirming roles that children can nevertheless play in their lives. This is a terrific resource for expanding our perspectives on parenting, reproduction and the shifting economic and social realities in women’s lives. I recommend it to academic and nonacademic audiences alike.

"Being Fruitful Without Multiplying" book release!
I’m glad to annunce that the book I contributed to, “Being Fruitful Without Multiplying“, is being released in October through Coffeetown Press.
Here is the official press release :
 Coffeetown Press Announces the October Release of Being Fruitful without Multiplying
Seattle, WA.—On October 1, 2012, Coffeetown Press will release Being Fruitful without Multiplying: Stories and Essays from around the World ($14.95, 254 pages, ISBN: 978-1-60381-155-2), an anthology of true stories by many women and a few men revolving around the elements of nature and nurture that led to their decisions not to procreate.
The project began as a memoir by three authors with family ties and ended as a conversation that included women and men ranging in age from twenty to sixty-one. Seventeen states and thirteen countries outside the U.S. are represented.
Childfree, childless … these are the labels society gives to women who do not bear children, due to choice or genetics.
Being Fruitful without Multiplying started as one woman’s quest to come to terms with her decision not to bear children. In conversation with Renee and Janice—two close relatives from different generations—Patricia found that they shared another, unexpected bond: each belonged to childless or childfree social networks. All three were weary of questions from well-meaning people who wondered why they had not born children. As they began to reach out to others in earnest, they found that many who belonged to their diverse online communities were eager to share their stories. Some had chosen to be childfree and some were childless because of biological factors but grew to appreciate the advantages. Some of those who chose not to reproduce still decided to become stepparents or adopt.
Over sixty women and a few men added their voices to those of the three main authors. The result is this rich and varied anthology, which includes stories from many different countries, cultures and income groups.
Say Yvette: “What began as a family conversation comparing notes about the choice not to bear children soon grew into a worldwide discussion through social networking childfree communities. Who knew virtual communities such as these existed and would be so large, diverse and vocal?”
Being Fruitful without Multiplying is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com. After Oct. 1st, it will be also available in eBook and paperback editions at select Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores as well as Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, and Amazon Japan.
