THE SEX FILES: Interview With A Size Queen

Everywhere I seem to turn these days, there is some amazingly sexy cam girl, Clips4Sale cutie, adult star finding a niche and […]

Todd Warner Moore: Path Overgrown

The title track here starts off this dozen. It’s a lilting, acoustic guitar-led ode, sweet single note electric guitar lines from Roberto Diana and backing vocals from Leah Hart and Nicole Stella filling it out. The acoustic guitar leading weaves through the Latin-like shuffle of “Little Cobra,” while Moore manages his sweetest picking of the first half of Path Overgrown on the wonderful ballad “Buildings.” I like this one especially, again Moore mixing his expression-filled voice with his backing vocalists and weaving some strings into the sadness

Magical Beasts: Yes, My Love, I Am Reaching

Magical Beasts: Yes, My Love, I Am Reaching

Chicago’s Magical Beasts band (the core of the band is Nathan Paulus, John Herbst and Josh Miller) has just released this 6-song, Yes, My Love, I Am Reaching. Claiming what we get here are “the dynamics between Love, Sex, deep Yearning, and various forms of Union…” what certainly comes clear is that this trio, with some solid musicians backing them, have the laconic modern-folk thing down.

THE SEX FILES: Photographer Ellen Stagg on the Art of Nude Modeling and More

THE SEX FILES: Photographer Ellen Stagg on the Art of Nude Modeling and More

I mentioned two new Goliath Books in my last SEX FILES. One, More Dirty Girls Having Fun, by Brooklyn-based photographer Ellen Stagg, is as much a female-empowering collection a feast for the eyes (at least in my hetero male viewpoint). I got lucky enough to catch up with Stagg and ask her a few questions…

New Books: More Dirty Girls Having Fun & A Visual History of Lovemaking Toys

New Books: More Dirty Girls Having Fun & A Visual History of Lovemaking Toys

The first comes to us from erotic photographer Ellen Stagg. This Brooklyn-based artist was raised in Connecticut, took up photography in high school, and graduated with a BFA in Photography from New York City’s School of Visual Arts. Gaining her reputation and skills shooting actors, musicians and sports stars for publications such as Life, Interview, Maxim, and Teen Vogue, Stagg would come into shooting sexually-explicit content for adult star Justine Joli in 2005.

Eva Schubert: Hot Damn Romance

Eva Schubert: Hot Damn Romance

The pulsating “Brawler” is next, once again featuring Alexander Brown’s horn, on this certainly sly and sexy groover, while the title track is even slower and low down. Here we get lots of Michael Kavalerchi’s jazzy guitar interplay, again Brown blowing his lines, Mark Hundervad popping along on drums and Schubert vocally strutting across the cool backing.

Rob Alexander: Being Myself

Rob Alexander: Being Myself

Rob Alexander might be a physician anesthesiologist, but the last thing he’ll do is put you to sleep on his new full-length album, Being Myself. Here’s a 15-song bunch of tightly woven adult contemporary pop/rock, with the main man in fine voice, being backed by some wonderful players.

Eric George: Where I Start

Eric George: Where I Start

A single electric guitar line with a “clip-clopping” rimshot-sounding backing beat, plus some sweet harmonies from Addie Herbert, start us on our way into Eric George’s Where I Start. This Vermont-based songwriter, performer, and sound engineer presents a sly folky rock collection of 11 here.

Scott Chasolen: Living In Limbo

Scott Chasolen: Living In Limbo

A well-established NYC-based musician, Chasolen is highly sought after for session work and also plays in the well-known Pink Floyd tribute band, The Machine. On Living In Limbo, we get an intimate peek into the solo work of this talented player/singer/songwriter.

THE SEX FILES: Interview With Irene Chen of Hustler Hollywood

THE SEX FILES: Interview With Irene Chen of Hustler Hollywood

I was lucky enough to talk to Irene Chen of Hustler Hollywood. H.H. maintains a spanking-cool URL where you can boy all the adult toys you’ll ever need (see here) as welcomes thousands to their infamous store location (soon, I’ll be telling you about the new NYC location they are opening). Along with the site, there is a sex toy guide resource page they want visitors to know about (go here) where adults can learn more, share tips and generally get good information on all that Hustler sells. Irene gave me some insight of what Hustler has learned through this page and in selling all the wonderful toys they do.
