I believe in Art.

I believe in the gifted and talented.

When I caught word that Rick Legal had his camera equipment stolen, it struck a nerve. As a photographer, this is one my worst nightmares with my own equipment. That and dropping my camera off a cliff or in the ocean. I’ve had some close calls.

Rick Legal is the one responsible for the photos you see on my blog posts for the past, I don’t know how long. I keep the PG ones on here so that I can share these posts on Facebook without getting a lifetime ban. He is one of my favorite erotic photographers and his work is spectacular. I hope you feel so too. If you read this blog, you have a level of taste and can appreciate good art when you see, read, hear, smell or even feel it.

Please keep Rick Legal shooting. I ask that you donate what you can. Every dollar helps towards replacing his equipment. I personally donated because I believe in him and want to see more of what he can do. Wouldn’t you?

With all that said. If Rick can get to his goal, I will make a point to keep writing. I know it feels I have abandoned this blog but life does get in the way. I appreciate your patience with me. Writing and creativity ebbs and flows.

Thank you for your support.

Thank you for supporting the ones I believe in.

Please click here to make any kind of donation. Every dollar is appreciated.

Today I was reviewing the stats for the past month for my blog and was pretty amazed by how many countries and cities visit this blog. I thought I would share some of this information with you all since I am fascinated with statistics. Hey, numbers can be sexy and don’t you forget that. I realize not everyone follows me on Twitter so I thought I should formally express my appreciation for your dedication to my filth sharing.

But before I share with you numbers and lists, I wanted to give you some updates since I realized the last time I wrote a post was the beginning of last month. I’ve been going through another phase of wanting to quit this all. This is not a plea what so ever for attention. If anything, it’s me wanting to leave the attention behind. I enjoy sharing my mind; desires and experiences with you all but what I’m not sharing are the darker and more serious aspects to my life. As you know, I’m private and I don’t share every bit of my life. You won’t see a full-face shot of me and you won’t see me attending sex related conventions. It’s mostly for my safety due to the graphic nature of some of the posts I write. It’s not because I’m an asshole and don’t want to meet any of you, all though probably for some, it’s because I’m an asshole. Anyways, I’ve gone through lulls and they have lasted a year and then I bounce back. I will see how I feel after this weekend to make a final decision. I do know that I would like to share some interviews with you because I feel, I know some very talented and artistic people. I am so fortunate to know so many remarkable individuals in my life. They are the barrier to me. I feel the one way to make yourself smarter or more creative is be around people smarter and more creative than you and that’s what I do.

Thank you for reading me.

Thank you for accepting me.

Thank you for your support.

Welcome to another feature on my blog, it’s news for my fellow artist friends. I am a huge supporter of all art mediums and I’d like to share some events/news with you for the months of November and December. If you have some news you would like to share for January and/or February, please feel free to contact me for consideration.

First off, the founders of Darling House have put together a sexy fundraising event called “The Other American Dream”, “A night of burlesque, acclaimed nude photography, music, magic, and more in celebration of figures on the frontier of new American sexuality” on December 3, 2012 in NYC at the Galapagos Art Space, 16 Main Street, Brooklyn. Bastard Keith will emcee the event and it features live performances by Stoya, Buck Angel, Madame Rosebud, Sovereign Syre, Stormy Leather, The Reformed Whores, Eric Walton, Brandon B and J.M. Darling.

 

 

The Other American Dream has three major components, The Revue, The Salon, and The Gallery.

• The Revue: A stage show headlined by an aerial performance by Stoya and featuring burlesque by Madame Rosebud and Stormy Leather; music by the Reformed Whores; magic by Eric Walton; standup by Brandon B; and an Exposé on Real-Life Pirates & Pornography by J. M. Darling.

• The Salon: A live interview hosted by Sovereign Syre with the most fascinating figures in Frontier Sexuality: Buck Angel, Lux Alptraum and Stoya. Includes a complimentary drink.

• The Gallery: A one-night art show highlighting the work of the country’s leading erotic photographers, including Nathan Appel, Richard Avery, Bob Coulter, J.M. Darling, Dastardly Dave, Otto von Erotica, Natasha Gornik, Haus of Se7en, Kencredible, Dave Naz, George Pitts, Corwin Prescott, Steve Prue, Collin J. Rae, Holly Randall, Nate “Igor” Smith, Tony Stamolis, Viva Van Story and others. Prints of their celebrated works will be available at an amazingly affordable one-night price.

• Plus: Sexy surprise raffle, photo booth, and a kissing booth

Advanced tickets are $20, this includes a special late-night drink and the doors open at 8pm. If you are in NYC you shouldn’t miss this event.

 

 

My very good friend and “brother”, T.M. Camp is having a sale on the books he has written. Have I mentioned that he is a very talented writer and I have read several of his books? Every book purchase includes a free version in ePub/Kindle format. Please check out his Black Friday prices. Please note: Special pricing applies to softcover only, available while supplies last. Autograph and inscription available on request at no extra charge. Shipping & Handling not included. International Shipping may include additional charges. Multiple item orders will receive discounted/combined shipping (refunded after order is submitted).

 

 

 

On November 13, 2012, Deftones released their new album, Koi No Yokan and I have been listening to it on loop ever since. If you are a Deftones fan you will not be disappointed and you can listen to the first 4 songs here.

 

 

 

 

Finally, thank you all for making me number 8 on Rori’s Top 100 Sex Blogger of 2012 list. It really feels great to have you all as readers and I hope I can keep 2013 just as interesting as the past seven years of writing for you all. Remember to keep it filthy and keep it deviant.
