The Ballyhoo Review! June 21, 2014

Excitingly, my page is up on Amazon! I chose to go the independent route and not use a traditional publisher, which means that my Amazon page is the best piece of marketing I’ll have. The folks who recieved the eBook as a kickstarter reward can now post their (5 star) reviews! Leaving a review is suuuper helpful. Please don’t mention that you know me, or that you helped fund the book–reviews like that might get deleted by Amazon. Extra thank yous to those who’ve already posted. It takes a village to ignite a revolution!

An Excerpt from the Book

“I named my business The Moral Minority. Not content to simply make clothes, I wanted to promote a lifestyle of fun, playful sexuality. I filled my publicity materials with absurdist manifestos about the sexual revolution. My shows included a speech about reclaiming the word pervert as an act of activism, and ended with me being carried off the stage naked and screaming. I mocked everything in sight with irreverent glee. The sexual revolution was, for me at the time, an abstract concept, a gimmick. I didn’t know much about the work that had gone on before me, paving the way for increasingly liberal sexual freedom in Western culture. I wasn’t aware of the people who had dedicated their lives in far more culturally oppressive times to bring us to this moment.”

Say What?

Call for Participation

We’re creating a video to help promote the global Kinky Salons. You can participate from your home with your webcam. We’ll ask you to read something to the camera. Then we have a bunch of silly things we want you to do. Make a heart shape with your hands, show us your underwear. Stuff like that. Then we’ll edit them all together into a super inspiring sex culture manifesto which communicates the ethos of Kinky Salon, and our ridiculous sense of humor.


On the interwebs

Here’s a useful guide that cropped up in my inbox this week, displaying the varying nipple policies of social networks. Obviously, this is for female nipples only (damn the patriarchy!)

Until next time,
