True Sex Confessions was amazing!

Last night's True Sex Confessions reading was AMAZING! Thank you to everyone who read - video coming soon. I think my favorite line of the night was Giulia Rozzi's "I wanted to suck his dick so hard all his issues came in my face."

We covered everything from airplane sex to pregnant sex to rape fantasies come to life to bad sex and donuts and more.

Here's a group photo by Stacie Joy. More coming soon.
