I’ve got two great and totally different events coming up, both in Southern California.  Come to them and say hello and give me a hug and tell me everything about yourself.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 7:30 PM (doors) at The Body Well in West Hollywood

flyer promo

Sex is everyone’s favorite taboo.  We do it, pursue it, and think about it, and it’s an essential aspect of our physical, mental, and emotional health.  But we have a hard time talking about it, even with our doctor.  To make matters worse, our doctors are usually only qualified to tell us about the basic biology and mechanics of sex.  But our sex lives extend beyond the bedroom and the actual act of sex.  What does it mean to be sexually healthy outside the bedroom?  How can we think and talk about sex in a healthy way? How can we contend with our sexual feelings when we’re not having sex, and what’s the best way to interact with everyone else’s sexualities?

Join me, Loveline co-host and Sex with Emily sex advice podcaster Emily Morse; and the host of Logo TV’s Bad Sex, author of Sex Outside the Lines, sex therapist Chris Donaghue, for our lively discussion about how to have a sexually healthy life.  The discussion will be led by Dr. Mike Carragher at The Body Well, followed by YOUR questions for the panelists after.

Suggested donation: $10.00-$20.00  No one turned away for lack of funds.

Parking: There is a parking lot behind The Body Well accessible via the alley. There is also metered parking available on Santa Monica Boulevard.

Here are bios for my two co-panelists!

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8

Sex, Pop Culture, and Comic Books: A conversation with Conner Habib and Phil Jimenez at Bent-Con

Phil

at the Los Angeles Burbank Marriot Convention Center/2500 N. Hollywood Way, Burbank, CA

Bent-Con is the big queer sci-fi/comics convention here in Southern California.  Last year, I wrote an article on the convention for Vice magazine.  This year, I’m immersed in the queer geekdom.  I’ll be having an hour-long conversation with legendary – and I mean legendary – comics artist Phil Jimenez.  Phil is an is primarily known for his work as writer/artist on Wonder Woman from 2000 to 2003, as one of the five pencilers of the 2005-2006 miniseries Infinite Crisis, and his collaborations with writer Grant Morrison on New X-Men and The Invisibles. Also, he’s awesome.

We’re going to go all over the place: Comics, fucking (well, um, talking about fucking, anyway), queer identity in comics culture, sci fi and geekdom, and more.

Gayternity

Me and a presumably queer Eternity.

 

Here’s the description of the event from the Bent-Con site: A salon style conversation between Conner Habib (Author, The Sex Book; Adult Film Actor) and Phil Jimenez (Comic Book Writer, DC & Marvel). Join us for an un-moderated, free-for-all conversation between these two pop culture stalwarts. Pull up a chair, grab a bean bag, listen in, ask questions, and let the fun begin!

 

It’s all true.  It’ll be a free-for-all.  I’m not sure what that means exactly, but yes! It will be that.

You can register for the conference for one day or two or three.  Phil and I would love to see you there.

    The panel you and Phil led was very entertaining. Thanks for presenting.

    Just wanted to say ‘Hey’, and to thank and congratulate you, for your truly engaged, believably committed and rousingly enthusiastic work, especially in Joe Gage’s ‘Armed Forces Physical’. Rarely has a performer succeeded in making me so thoroughly jealous of him, as you repeatedly do. Thanks again (and what a treat to discover that you’re smart, too! I should have known…) Sincerely, Walter Zimmerman (aka ‘Bill Carpenter’ — I used to write uplifting erotic material for Torso, Honcho, Inches and other gay mags in the 90’s)
