1. Topless A Go Go Returns!
Daily, 6pm–2am, Condor Club, 560 Broadway, 415-781-8222
You’ve never been, not once? Well, it’s time: Check out the topless entertainment, risqué burlesque dancers and VIP Champagne lounges. And it’s returning so it must be worthwhile. Plus it’s at the legendary Condor Club. Text “CONDOR” to 35350 for your free admission.
As we head into the end of May and the beginning of summer, keep these (mostly) local events on your radar should you feel the need to turn up the heat.
Sunday, May 25, at the Center for Sex & Culture downtown
Just think: Sex with someone you love, and for a great cause.
2. Ask the Doctors: Masturbation
“It’s a holiday for women, and Hallmark … On the 13th and 15th of February if you’re not happy, then the 14th isn’t going to be an exception …”
Likely because my mom in Michigan says this when I tell her about certain happenings in my life.
However, a truly “only in San Francisco” event occurred this year when Kink.com moved into the historic Mission Armory.
Peter Acworth, the CEO, decided to expand his adult entertainment empire and purchased the Armory for $14.5 million. Read more about Peter in 7x7's "The New Pornographers."
I wanted to share my visit to The Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre, where I played a little dress-up, learned a couple of sexy dance moves and hung out with two hot strippers named Lindsay and Cherry.
Lindsay told me, “There’s nothing sexier than a woman who’s in tune with her sexuality.”
I couldn’t agree with her more.

I had a chance to meet with “America’s Relationship Expert” Maryanne Comaroto (she’s a relationship advocate, workshop facilitator and licensed therapist). To give you an idea about the subject matter she takes on, one of her latest workshops is titled “Find the Man, Get the Man, Keep the Man; What You Need to Know Before You Drop Your Drawers.” That said, in our discussion, we talk about—you name it—everything from relationship dynamics, going for guys whom you know are bad for you, having sex instead of making love and finding true happiness from within.
Eventually, however, there was a turning point, and the word started rolling off tongues.
“Thank god for Eve Ensler (creator of The Vagina Monologues),” VL exclaimed.
Maybe you’ve seen the Vagina Lady at events around town, from Gay Pride to Bay to Breakers, though not at the Folsom Street Festival (way too many penises in play, I've surmised).
I get a ton of emails from people asking me questions about topics that happen to comprise the stuff of popular spams these days (things like Viagra, penis size, sex-related surgery, enhancement drugs, etc.).
But in the last seven days, I also got emails with the following subject lines:
1. No medicine can satisfy your penis needs as ours can.
2. Change your life! Increase your phallus!
3. Ashamed of your size? Manster will help!
4. We are here for you and your penis!
5. Don't be an average man!
Even if it doesn’t seem up your alley, just have a listen for yourself. It could be the best five minutes you’ve wasted all day.
I interviewed Gil on my show awhile back and wanted to pass along some Jewish humor in honor of the holidays. Sure, I’ll be atoning for my sins during Yom Kippur this weekend, but who says atoning can’t be funny or sexy?
Check out “I’m into Jewish mother stereotypes” if you need to laugh, hard right about now.
Once they understand that I have a talk show not about my sex life per se, but about those of other people, they want to know who’s my favorite guest.
For the record, I don’t have a favorite (nor I do play favorites with ice cream flavors, colors or vacation spots), but I do love the shows that I have with women just sitting around and talking about sex.
