While this site is dedicated to my erotic reading series, In The Flesh, you may be interested in last year's Lusty Lady column for The Village Voice entitled "Spanking Jessica Cutler,"
about the Steinbuch v. Cutler lawsuit. I stand by that column but will have more to say about the latest updates soon and have posted subsequently
at my blog, Lusty Lady, about the case. I would also highly recommend Julie Hilden's Findlaw column from June 21, 2005, "Are Accounts of Consensual Sex a Violation of Privacy Rights? The Lawsuit Against the Blogger "Washingtonienne"
Update: Of particular relevance: see my post at Lusty Lady, "Reasonable person, my ass"
Additionally, here are recaps
from the April 19th True Confessions Night where Jessica Cutler read her tampon story.
