Sex, Horror, and TV. Or: I’ve Been Real Busy.

25 Apr

Generally, I only post if I have, you know, a post. But I’ve had so much going on in other venues lately, that I think an update is in order.

First is my essay on The Cabin in the Woods is up on horror icon Peaches Christ’s website. Peaches Christ, in case you don’t know, is an internationally famous drag queen, horor event host, and artist. She’s currently working on a giant horror-related event with Elvira. Whoa!

Second: I’m now Logo TV’s Sex Expert, via their NewNowNext site. You send questions about sex, I answer them in a video with my standard good-natured/goofy/slutty manner. So far, I’ve answered questions about a lack of hard-ons and the right attitude for being in pornography.

Third: my first essay as a contributing writer to Salon.com, Rest Area Confidential” “came out about a month ago, and it’s on having sex at rest areas. It caused a bit of a shit storm, including a defense on Out Magazine’s site and an appearance on the Mike Bullard Show. This kind of stuff always makes a writer happy.

More? Well, yes, more. I’ve got an essay coming out in a book from Evolver Editions. It’s an essay on pornography, love, touch, and rebellion.
My essay on Occupy Wall Street is being anthologized in a free education PDF on Occupy.
Finally, my essay on Lynn Margulis will be in a collection from Chelsea Green this Fall.
More on all those as they get closer to publication.

Oh, and of course, there’s the pornography!
Thanks for coming here and check back for a proper blog entry soon!

    I posted this today….maybe sometime in the future you can discuss the fluid sexuality of the ancients.

    Somewhere in my past research of sex, homosexuality in history, or Roman history [you must remember my Art History background was in Roman Art, who else do you know who has taken a semester (yes this was before the UC changed to quarters) class on ‘Roman Lampshades’?] I noted that April 25th is the Ancient Roman Holiday for Male Prostitutes.

    A true believer in sexual freedom, I loved that fact that most of the non-Christian world felt that sex was good. And the partner didn’t matter.

    I know nothing of the actual fest ivies. Usually the ancient Romans used festival days for drinking, general partying, sex and a traditional visit to the shrine of the god who was best suited [my best guess Bacchus, Liber, Cybele, Venus (can paid sex be love?)].

    Somewhere I came upon some (I’ve edited and changed) of the following: The Greek God of Homosexuality was Ganimidis (Ganymede). He was at first a prince, son of the Troy king and a river goddess. He was so beautiful that Zeus fell in love with him, transformed into an eagle and grabbed him and brought him to Olympus, where he gave him immortality and made him a god (cup bearer) due to that kind of attraction of Zeus, he was thereafter the God of homosexuality! But, I don’t believe there is a roman equivalent.

    I should ask what Steven Saylor knows? What I really want to know about the festival did this mean they took the day off or just fucked for fun? Where’s my time machine?

    Mr. Conner Habib, you seem to be everywhere right now and I am so glad to hear your writing is getting recognition. I have certainly enjoyed the intelligence, thoughtfulness, compassion and angst in which you write.

    I hope you do not mind but I included you in one of my posts entitled Gay Adult Stars – The Human Side at http://www.ShadowSterling.com

    Take care and keep stirring the pot!

      Thanks for the kind words and the shout-out, Shadow :)

        You deserve the kind words and you are welcome.

        Now that I work in this industry I clearly identify with your proclamations from your article in the Advocate http://www.advocate.com/Politics/Commentary/Oped_Investigating_Porn/
        that we need to be more visible and transparent.

        However I sadly still am not. Hopefully one day I will be able to be as brave as you.

        With kind regards for all you do and accomplish,
        Shadow Sterling
