The Sexuality Post

Wesleyan alum David Jay, founder and practitioner of the Asexual Visibility and Education Network, is featured as a sexpert, or rather lack-of-sexpert, in this week’s edition of Dan Savage’s Village Voice sex column, Savage Love. Jay is quoted saying, “Show me anyone, sexual or asexual, who isn't in some way fucked up, and I'll gag.” Gurl, you don’t know what it means to gag! As a refresher, some of you may recognize Jay as that guy who used to rollerblade around campus with a bike helmet and fanny pack, before it was ironic.

Rumor has it that another, not-asexual Wes alum /
reality star will be featured on the next cover of Go NYC, a weekly magazine and cultural guide for the urban lesbian. Copies go onsale today in a million area shops, bars, and cultural centers.

I am currently reading Woman: An Intimate Geography by Natalie Angier. It is beautifully written, and fascinating – not the sappy gender-politics-oriented “Hooray vaginas!” rant that I feared it might be. It is a whimsical, eloquent anatomical survey of the human female. Go get it and read it. It’s marked at $15, but you can get it for

On Wednesday night,
Bang! at China 1 was full of pretty young things, the staff from Genre Magazine, and even your odd celesbian.
