I want to start the New Year off with a bang. As we all know there is always so much going on around this great city of ours, monthly parties and events at clubs catering to the kinky in all of us, readings, workshops, art classes, you name it. I have taken the liberty of naming just a few here, just a smattering of whatâ€™s happening around us for this first month of the New Year.
So get up and out.
1.)Â Â Â Ongoing-Our good friends at the Museum of Sex (the MOS for those of us in the know) have a new exhibit. Their â€œComics-Strippedâ€ is a fusion of text and images (and lots of images at that) showcasing comic characters in slightly compromising situations. Want to see that Marge Simpson cover from Playboy a few years back, or some iconic image posing all naughty? How about learning about specific naughty comics? All manner of images and text from the cute to the hardcore are at the MOS right now: http://www.museumofsex.com/exhibit/comics-stripped
