Love seems awful treacly at this time of year, given all of the Hallmark-card and Kay Jewelers insistence upon it. But Valentine's Day began as a strange Roman holiday-Lupercalia-in which thonged young men used bloody goat entrails to whip naked women who wanted to get pregnant.
Now that's a holiday Baltimore could get behind!
So, forget love. You hold in your hands City Paper's Sex Issue, where you'll find a guide to the G spot with sex educator Jacq Jones; a profile of Kurt Lockwood, a male porn star from Dundalk; a story about two different historic First Amendment smut battles fought from a warehouse at 3300 Clipper Mill Road; and a piece on FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture, which hacked Victoria's Secret's website last fall and is planning V-Day action on the National Mall.
But here at Baltimore's randiest alt-weekly, we know that sex is not only fun-it can also be horribly embarrassing. So we asked you, Baltimore, to share your own embarrassing sex stories. Most of these are anonymous, but we got a great one from Brokeass Gourmet's Gabi Moskowitz about the Great Pussy Waxing of 1999.
