Two Best Sex Writing of the Year Events in NYC—This Week!

I am heading down to New York City for two Best Sex Writing of the Year events this week! On Wednesday and Thursday, please join Stoya, David Henry Sterry, Lux Alptraum and myself in launching, reading from and discussing the book and pretty much all kinds of sex talk.

NYC Launch of Best Sex Writing of the Year

Wednesday, April 29 at 7:00pm
Bureau of General Services-Queer Division
208 West 13th St Room 210, New York, New York

Join Cleis Press in launching Best Sex Writing of the Year—a thought-provoking collection that traverses the spectrum of the contemporary sexual landscape.

Editor Jon Pressick and contributors David Henry Sterry, Stoya, and Lux Alptraum will read from their contributions as well as conduct an informal question and answer session exploring the intersections between sex and writing and how those can then be informed and affected by society and our personal selves.

Always thought provoking, these passionate yet incisive essays boldly confront the controversies surrounding our most deeply held assumptions about sexuality.


Best Sex Writing of the Year Salon

Wednesday, April 29 at 7:00pm
Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center
172 Allen St, New York, New York

Jon Pressick and tri-state area contributors Stoya, David Henry Sterry, and Lux Alptram will read from their essays in Best Sex Writing of the Year and there will be an informal question and answer session.

Best Sex Writing of the Year skillfully traverses the spectrum of the contemporary sexual landscape. Always thought provoking, these passionate yet incisive essays boldly confront the controversies surrounding our most deeply held assumptions about sexuality.

From an argument for celibacy to documentation of the most outlandish sexual fetishes, Best Sex Writing of the Year presents the true face of contemporary sexuality, one that is edgy, honest, and always changing.

Discussing CONSENT—A Special Sex City

It was an honour to host last night’s Sex City show all about Consent. Many thanks to my special guest co-host Lisa Bucher for putting this show together with me and doing a great job. Many thanks to all of the guests, each of whom we could have easily dedicated an entire hour to. Raymond Motee gave us just a glimpse, but very key information on the status of consent in the legal realm. Matt Scott and shadow-girl introduced us to Ontario Kink and how Jian Ghomeshi’s calculated inclusion of BDSM in his initial, defensive statement affected the kink community and how they and others are working to educate on matters of consent. And Heather Elizabeth and JP Robichaud provided the building blocks for us to bring consent into our lives, in clear, compassionate ways.
