Attention, New Yorkers,
On Thursday evening, September 16 — one week from today — I will be appearing at the famed “In the Flesh” erotic reading series, hosted by the inimitable Rachel Kramer Bussel.
The theme is “Virgin Night,” but I’ve been assured that Frank N. Furter lookalikes will not be pelting toast at newbies in attendance, nor will anyone be sacrificed to the dark gods.
Here are a few reasons to show up:
1. The reading series, a mainstay on the Lower East Side, is winding down. Because all good things must come. To an end. Must come to an end. There are only four of these left. So if you ever plan to indulge your deepest desires, now is the time.
2. Past TNB readers at this event include Gina Frangello and Jillian Lauren. This makes me the first unsexy TNBer to appear.
3. Joining me on the docket will be Marcy Dermansky, author of the fantastic Bad Marie (I read it. It really is fantastic. I’m not saying that just because Gina liked it).
4. I will be reading a post that will never grace the pages of TNB. Not something I want on the Internet. Nor will there be a recording. So if you want to hear my sort-of-sexy, sort-of-funny, sort-of-true tale, you have to show up at Happy Ending Lounge on Thursday.
5. Free admission.
6. Free cupcakes.
Here are the deets:
