I Am a Sex Worker: Video and Audio PSA

There were a lot of things I loved about doing the Speak Up! training, but I am really excited about this public service announcement. I had the idea for this video last year but hadn’t had the opportunity to see it through until the media training. It’s just a minute long – check it out, […]

Naked City Nostalgia (My Fave Videos)

April 10th, 2009 at 10:12 am

Last night when I dug up the Naked City TV episode about Sex 2.0 I sat and watched a bunch of episodes of the show, and it made me feel all nostalgic about making the show and writing the Naked City blog for the Village Voice. It was a year ago this week that Naked […]

I finally got my hands on the clip of me on CNN Prime News from March 13th. In case you don’t recall, I got a call to do a segment on CNN Prime News. This was the day after “Eliot Spitzer’s call girl” – quotes because, what, he owns her? – got outed. The interview […]

Both sides of the camera: story subject, story maker

May 14th, 2008 at 12:46 pm

As you might be able to tell from the radio silence here on Waking Vixen for the past bunch of weeks, I’ve been busy pursuing other stuff. That other stuff is primarily in the form of writing posts and shooting video for Naked City, though there’s other stuff in the works too (teaching my first […]

Notes for my Sex 2.0 Keynote

April 14th, 2008 at 10:50 am

Since I wrote my book “Naked on the Internet,” one of the questions I get asked in just about every interview is: how did you get interested in this topic? And sometimes I draw a total blank when I try to respond, or I just want to say, “duh – cuz it’s awesome.” But the […]
