Trick or Treat?

It's October, my favorite month. I love foliage, crisp autumn air, apple cider and — of course — HALLOWEEN! I love any occasion where we can let our alter egos out to play, and I plan to have a particularly randy Halloween this year. I would tell you about my costume, but I must remain anonymous. Suffice it to say — it's hot.

Haunted Perhaps the only people planning to have a hotter Halloween than me are the performers in this year's Haunted XXX in Houston, Texas — a haunted house where the ghosts and goblins are actually scantily-clad ladies in little more than glow-in-the-dark body paint. Haunted XXX has some Houston residents and city officials up in arms, claiming that the promoters are using the haunted house moniker as a way to skirt adult-oriented business laws for the month of October.

Haunted XXX promoter John Finlay told KHOU-TV, "There's sexy scenes and then a scare, sexy scenes and then a scare." Further, promoters for Haunted XXX claim that adult entertainment laws should not apply to them because their performers are covered in paint. (Yeah, I mean, wearing body paint is JUST like wearing a shirt.) But with their list of sponsors consisting of only adult-oriented cabarets, lawyers for the city of Houston told KHOU-TV that they'd be checking out Haunted XXX. Tough job, but someone's gotta do it. . .

Ghoulishly yours,
