She never leaves my side at parties. People come up to talk to me or her or both of us and she has impeccable control over the conversation, a complex harmony of our varied voices with a beautiful baseline that she keeps with her heartbeat. She knows when and how to release us from a topic or person. She does most of the talking. I listen. I like it that way. She leans in to give me a peck on the cheek near my ear and whispers, "I'm watching the clock. We're leaving in thirty minutes so you can take me home and fuck me."Read More
I have never - and probably would never - describe myself as "insecure." I consider myself to have pretty healthy self-confidence and self-awareness, I'm pretty strong in my beliefs and who I am. At least, that's what I've always thought.Read More
I’ve heard great things about this film and I’m looking forward to seeing it. Here’s the trailer:
Have you seen it? Was it any good?
Itty Bitty Titty Committee is on sale at Wolfe Video (which is a badass LGBT film site).
This is my new favorite crop or slappy toy. It is not something I probably ever would have picked up on my own, but it appeared in my inbox one day and I thought, huh, why not, I need a new crop of sorts, I don't have anything like that, let's give it a try. So very glad I did.Read More
The New York City Sexbloggers Calendar release party is over. Now, five days later, the Twitter-loving on each other is fading, the blog posts are just about exhausted.
There were so many folks in from out of town and it was such a pleasure to meet everyone! I especially want to shout out to Greg & Jason from Njoy – such a pleasure, gentlemen – and the Gay Friday ladies whose company I very much enjoyed. And thanks so much to my friends (A, C, W, J, B).
Here’s a couple write-ups and reflections from the party:
- Jack caught me taking a … ahem … private moment with a smokin’ hot girl.
- Bad bad girl tells about bringing me a perfect silver pen, and how I reward her for it.
- Jack also has a roundup of posts about the party at NYC Sexblogs, with some great links to other people’s stories and photos.
If you haven’t already seen it, my pinup photo from the calendar is featured in Time Out New York online.
What’s that? You haven’t seen it? Is that because you weren’t at the party, and haven’t purchased a calendar? Well you’re in luck – they are not entirely gone. $20 – twenty bucks – and twelve sexbloggers will stare back at you all throughout 2009.
- NYC Sex Bloggers Calender – $20 (US Shipping)
- NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar – $20 (Canada Shipping)
- NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar – $20 (Overseas Shipping)
Actually, a word about the calendar: it’s more than pretty pinup photos (though it is that), it’s more than donation to a good cause (though it is that too) – it’s also a community resource. Nearly 2/3 of the days have blog URLs, sex toy company bargains, or cultural events listed.
Did you get a copy of the Sugarbutch Star Chapbook from me at the party? No? Well, you’re in luck there too, I still have some. They’re $10 each. Email me for more details, or donate $10 via the paypal link over on the sidebar and make a note that it’s for the Chapbook.

This has been played & overplayed on the blogs I read this week, but if you haven’t seen it yet, you must. I love the conviction in his voice, the passion, the drive. Bottle just a thumbnail of that and keep it wrapped in your chest when you need respite.
We can do this, we can get through this, we can fix this, we can change this.
I didn’t mention this in yesterday’s post about the New York City Sex Blogger Calendar and should have – the sex toy company Njoy was single-handedly responsible for the printing of the calendar, and we owe them big big BIG thanks.
They have been so courteous and giving through this project, and really a pleasure to work with. They clearly support Sex Worker Awareness – which is where ALL the money from the calendar is going, didn’t I mention that? – and they have also given us some wonderful raffle prizes to give away.
I’m sorry, but have you ever actually used one of the Njoy products? SOLID STAINLESS STEEL. Can you imagine how goddamn hot they are? I know the price tag is really high – really high – but they are freakin’ amazing. Smooth and sooo heavy.
I haven’t tried the Eleven yet – that’s it in the diagram above. Did you catch the part about how it’s 11″ long, and 2″ at one end? That fucker is HUGE. I mean 11″ is almost a foot, almost the size of a standard ruler or your forearm. And it weighs almost three pounds. THREE POUNDS.
And I believe we’re giving one of them away in the raffle on Friday night. You better believe I’m going to be buying up those raffle tickets.
Thank you, Njoy, for sponsoring the calendar, and for making such high-quality toys.
This Friday at the White Rabbit for the release of the NYC Sexblogger 2009 Calendar. I’m one of the pin-ups (ahem, Mr. August), and I also was the senior graphic designer on the project, and I spent a lot of time on the layout & design, so it kind of feels like my baby in some ways!
ALL the pin-ups will be at the party, plus some fancy burlesque dancers.
NYC Sex Blogger 2009 Limited Edition Calendar
Friday, November 14, 2008
from 6:30 pm – 9:30pm
at The White Rabbit
145 E. Houston Street, between Forsyth and Eldridge, New York City
ALSO: we had SO many sex toy sponsors that I don’t even know how we’re going to give it all away. The first 100 people in the door get Babeland gift bags; the first 100 people to buy a calendar get a bottle of Sliquid Silk (really great lube). Plus there are crazy raffle prizes, burlesque dancers, and special guests … it’s gonna be a big night in Sexblogger history, don’t you want to be there? Yeah, I thought so.
