Sex (I’m a…)By Greg Olear
September 09, 2010
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:

I saw that you were on the line-up, too. Very excited to properly meet you!
Likewise. I’m bring your book so you can sign it.
Nice Berlin reference! I wish I could be there. xoxo.
Thanks Tawni. You know how you can get there? Take the Met-ro-oh-oh. ; )
I love the Berlin reference too! I used to think that song was so racy. Like that one from The The….
Wish I could be there too.
In fact, just read Tawni’s comment above and apply it to me!
My wife also found the song racy. Heck, it’s racy. But the Weird Al version kicks ass.
Once again, if I were rich and mobile…
And man, how I’d like to hear that story. I’ll bet it’s a doozy. 🙂
Break a leg!
It’s proving a difficult one to distill to seven minutes of reading time…
Good luck, man. Make sure you do it in a breathy, “Happy Birthday Mr. President” kind of voice, and for God’s sake, get us the audio as soon as humanly possible.
Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.
