Upon Return & Porn Party

I’ve returned from the New Mexico desert! It’s a bit surreal to be back, I’m still longing for the hot springs and the sound of the hummingbirds and the hammock. But I’ve got a pile of work waiting for me here in my various inboxes, so I better get to it. I’m heavily involved in the Butch Voices NYC Regional Conference that is happening September 25th, and between that and a special semi-secret relaunch of a project, this September is going to be very full. That means I might be posting less here, though I’ll try to keep it up.

A few of you asked about the erotic energy workshop that I’ll be coordinating in November in New York State. If you’re interested in attending, or want more information, email me and I’ll send you the exact dates and cost. It’s residential, meaning you stay at a retreat center for three days, and all meals are included.

Meanwhile! Garnet Joyce and I are organizing another Porn Party on Twitter. This one is next week, Wednesday September 8th, at 6pm PST / 9pm EST. We’ll be watching Tight Places: A Drop Of Color and tweeting our reactions with the hashtag #pornparty.

The last one, where we watched Fluid: Men Redefining Sexuality, was really fun. Come join in on the conversation!
