Philadelphia City Paper plug and International Orgasm Day!

It's media day in RKB land, apparently, and since I'm somewhat of a complete and total media whore, I love it. Some cupcakes, some smut, some randomness, more info on that coming soon I hope. In Philadelphia City Paper, Ashlea Halpern gives a rundown of sexy events she thinks Philadelphia should steal from other cities and In The Flesh is one of them! I also learned that August 8th is International Orgasm Day (who knew?).

Also in NYC: "Lusty Lady" Rachel Kramer Bussel's monthly In the Flesh Erotic Reading Series, which lures its audience with the promise of free cupcakes and tantalizing wordage. Comedians, sex columnists, lesbian erotica editors, adult stars and more confess their raunchiest, raciest, most rocking-est bedroom escapades — sometimes in iambic pentameter, sometimes freestyle.
