Thanks, Jezebel and how to get In The Flesh updates

I just wanted to give a big shoutout to Jezebel for highlighting In The Flesh and protesting the insanity of The Erotic Review editor Kate Copstick's ridiculous "women can't write about sex" idea.

I'm looking forward to welcoming Jezebel's Megan Carpentier for True Sex Confessions Night July 16th, and have had Jezebel blogger Tracie Egan read here from her rape fantasy article.

Want to get updates about In The Flesh? Join my monthly newsletter at (this month's just went out, but they are sent out prior to In The Flesh) and/or join the In The Flesh Reading Series Facebook group.

Or just check the calendar at right. (I know it now includes past dates, but I couldn't figure out how to do it to show all the dates I wanted, the options at RSS Calendar are limited.)
