Postcards from Amsterdam

May 30th, 2007 at 3:12 pm

My luggage got lost on the way to Amsterdam and it took a day and a half for it to reach me, which was both crappy and funny at the same time. We’ve been wandering the city a lot, and discovering things like my name on a poster wheat pasted all over the place. Sweet. […]

An American pornographer in Amsterdam

May 26th, 2007 at 1:08 am

In 48 hours, I’ll be on a plane over the big pond. Destination: Amsterdam. Two years ago, when I went to Amsterdam for the Summer Institute on Sexuality and Culture, I was in an entirely different, much more fucked up place. I had just finished what would turn out to be the final six months […]

My half sleeve

May 23rd, 2007 at 12:06 am

8 sessions, story 16 hours. Done by the ever-lovely Joy Rumore. The light/color looks a little weird and goddamn is it hard to take pictures of my own arm, check but you get the general idea.

A slightly panicky countdown

May 21st, 2007 at 12:57 am

Somehow in my fantasy of this time before the book is officially out, I thought I’d relax, but I didn’t really take into account the anxiety of wondering what will happen, what people will think. I plan to do a fair amount of fucking off before the insanity begins in June – I did a […]

Party hopping: Needled and Cooch

May 17th, 2007 at 4:51 pm

Bella Vendetta has been in town this week, making my apartment look like a bomb hit it. But that’s ok, I don’t hold that against her. We’ve been playing it fairly low key, dinners out with friends and the like, but last night we lived it up with two parties in one night. First we […]

Big day!

May 16th, 2007 at 5:20 pm

Yesterday I graduated from the Columbia University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences with an MA in American Studies. Also, my book shipped from the printers and is, as we speak, on its way to a bookstore near you. I’m feeling slightly dazed and headachy, but… here we go! The countdown to the insanity of […]

A Bad Solution: licensing dancers in NYC for their “protection”

May 10th, 2007 at 10:00 pm

I heard rumblings of this yesterday and confirmation today: Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, a democrat from the 51st Assembly District in Brooklyn, has just introduced a bill that would require strippers to become Licensed Exotic Dancers (LEDs) with the state of New York. He believes that by requiring dancers to get (by which I mean, purchase) […]

Indie sex shops (heart) The Bi Apple

May 9th, 2007 at 10:18 pm

It’s true! Check it out: From Good For Her in Toronto: What happens when innocent college student, Simone Valentino, is sent to do a research study about the sexual behaviour of queer NYC couples? Well, apparently one of the best bisexual movies to come out in years. This flick has it all: straight sex, pegging, […]

Vintage Dacia: fooling around in bed with a camera, September 2004. Story continuity on the Internet is a fascinating thing. When I first started blogging almost three years ago, my blog was very much a personal expression of my experiences: working for a porn company, being a (somewhat blundering) sex worker, navigating my way through […]

Sex blogs on Daily Tang

May 3rd, 2007 at 11:47 pm

Apparently I am Tang-worthy. I blogged about this new vlog on Fleshbot a while ago, and it looks like they’ve returned the favor, saying some very nice things about me.
