Other ways to help $pread

December 22nd, 2006 at 7:00 pm

I’ve gotten a lot of comments and emails from people who don’t have money to spare for $pread, but would like to help in some other way. Though we’re always looking for volunteers (volunteer publicist anyone?), at the moment there’s just no way of getting around the fact that we need cold hard cash to […]

Well, the bulk of it anyway, though I have yet to write the conclusion and the note on methodology. Holy fuckballs kids, I wrote a book. Granted, I still have a week and a half of hardcore editing ahead of me, but dudes, the horrendous part is over. Not so horrendous even – unless I’m […]

The ever-lovely and gracious Violet Blue named me to her Top Ten Sexiest Geeks of 2006 list. And that’s a lift I needed so badly this week: I’m really feeling like so much of the work I’m doing is teetering on the edge between totally awesome and total disaster. If things go according to plan […]

The new Waking Vixen. I have been totally weird and top secret about this, but I thought I’d give a little bit of a heads up before it hits ya – the redesign of is going to be live good and soon. Once the site is re-launched I’ll write a bit more about the […]

“Deep inside booty juice”

December 15th, 2006 at 8:51 pm

That is an actual phrase I uttered in Kirby Ferguson’s “Sex Advice from New York Pornographers” on Nerve Video. Also, I talk about my affection for she-male porn. When he was in NYC for CineKink back in October, Kirby interviewed me, Joe Gallant and Candida Royalle after my State of Smut:NYC panel. The night before […]
