Almost all the In The Flesh readers

Last night's In The Flesh was outstanding! THANK YOU to everyone who read and everyone who came out. It was a crazy day weather-wise, with a rainstorm in the morning and the Grand Central explosion later in the day, but we packed the room and it was one of the most diverse, sexy, funny nights we've had. Everything from spanking to truck stop sex to dental porn (!!) to succubi, beach cruising, and shoe sex. Hotness!
