Wanna Get Lucky?

Seven Days ended up with two copies of Best Sex Writing 2010 (edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, so you know it's good), and I've decided to give one away to a lucky reader.

Bestsex If you're a sex nerd (or an aspiring sex nerd), this book is a must-have on your shelf. Best Sex Writing 2010 covers some of the most timely and provocative sex questions of the day. From Christine Seifert's look at the erotic bite behind Twilight to John DeVore's essay on what really turns men on (hint: It's not only Megan Fox), this collection goes from erotic to thought-provoking with every turn of the page. Plus, you'll also find Seven Days' own Judith Levine between the covers of this killer collection. Her reexamination of teen sexting leaves us wondering whether the criminalization of teen sexual expression is really in the best interest of our children.

If you'd like to get your hands all over a copy of Best Sex Writing 2010, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post describing the best sex or relationship advice you've ever received and why it was so valuable to you. Be sure to use a valid email address so I can contact you if you are the winner (you'll then be able to pick up the book at the Seven Days office, or I'll mail it to you). I'll be accepting comments through Monday, January 18.

I'm a giveaway virgin, so be gentle.

Seven Days Sex Survey

Seven Days is gearing up for my favorite issue of the year — The Sex Issue. (Duh!)

Unknown To make matters more juicy, it's time for a new sex survey. Every two years, Seven Days probes its readers with scintillating questions about their proclivities. You can take the survey online here. Now, I'm counting on you, my readers, to really spice up this year's results. Take your time answering the essay questions — I'll likely be helping to tabulate the results, and I want you to keep me entertained.

The Sex Issue and the results of the survey will be appear in the February 25 edition of Seven Days.

Tricks and Treats

With Halloween on a pre-election Friday this year, I think we're in for a wild night. I love Halloween because people use it as a free hall pass to be the person they wish they were the rest of the year — and that can make for an unforgettable evening.

Talking with friends the other day, we discussed our most memorable Halloween hookups. One friend recalled getting it on with the Tin Man, and I relayed my story about fooling around with a member of Blue Man Group — and we both vowed never to hook up with people wearing face paint ever again. Two of my gay male friends recalled having sex as Martina Navratilova and Mary Katherine Gallagher — not with each other, but that would have been hilarious.

What's the hottest and/or most bizarre Halloween costume you've ever had sex with? Or, perhaps you were the one wearing something memorable? Leave me a comment (you can be anonymous — just make up a name and skip the rest).

As for this year, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a three-way with Obama and Palin — or Tina Fey. I'm not picky.

Happy Halloween,

Talk is cheap (when it's good)

What's the hottest thing anyone has ever said to you?

My winner, hands down, happened when I studied abroad during college. I had been hanging around with a group of cool perverts, learning everything I could about the bdsm and kink scenes in this foreign city. One night, I went for some hands-on learning with one of them — a hot Leather Daddy with a thick Scottish accent.

Our tryst started in a dark alleyway. After the making out turned hot and heavy, he stopped, pushed me up against the cold brick wall of the building and said in that delicious Scottish accent: Have you been a naughty little girl?

Uh. Yes. Yes, I have.

And you? Tell me about the hottest thing you've ever had the pleasure of hearing. You can comment anonymously, just make up a name and skip the other fields.

I don't know if it was the 4th of July fireworks, goofing off at the lake or drinking way too much gin in the middle of the afternoon — but this holiday weekend got me nostalgic for summers past. So, what did I do? I had sex in a car.

Ahhh, the good ol' days.

Well, actually, I had sex in a car up until a set of bright headlights illuminated behind us and splayed our rated-R silhouette on the side of the building we hastily parked in front of.

Needless to say, we finished up elsewhere.

What about you? Have you had sex in a car lately? Ever? Give me the make, model and circumstance.

My Kind of Math

According to this formula by Jessa Crispin, I am not a slut:

# of Total Men > Your Age x 1.5

I'm more like a half-slut. But, if it was number of total men and women, I'd be a lot closer to slutdom.

How about you?

(Thanks to Lumpesse for posting this Jessa Crispin quote via Reverse Cowgirl. Whew.)
