(the West coast version of In The Flesh founded by Rachel Kramer Bussel) is a monthly reading series held the second Wednesday of every month at Hustler Hollywood, and features the city's best journalists, authors, scriptwriters and more offering their torrid tales for your entertainment and titillation.

Readers have included Willam Belli, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Maxim Jakubowski, Stan Kent, Shana Ting Lipton, Jenny Block, Regina Lynn, Rob Roberge, Eugene S. Robinson, Marty Barrett, Seth Greenland, Nina Hartley, Jeff Miller, Colleen Wainwright, Adam Grayson, Joanna Angel, Ernest Greene, Maggie Marr and BatSheva Vaknin. We've also been written up in Metroblogging L.A., LAist, Thrillist, Fishbowl L.A., Blue Blood and others.

Themed include Survival, Confessions, Madonna, Fears, Embarrassments and many more. Complimentary snacks and desserts from the Hustler Hollywood cafe will be offered. The event is free.

June's "Confessions" Were Awesome!

June's "In The Flesh" was fabulous, thanks for asking! Great crowd, great readers... everything about the evening was wonderful. Some pictures from the event (an apologies in advance - I don't yet have a pro photog to cover ITF: L.A., so these are all courtesy of my digital camera, which doesn't always shoot well in night settings.)

Here's the stage and seating set-up. You wouldn't think this would be in the back of a cute sex shop, and yet...

Vino and cupcakes, as sponsored by Schmerty's. This time out we had double chocolate, chocolate and vanilla, and red velvet. (I have an announcement coming up about a wine sponsor, so stay tuned for that!)

Here's Jenny Block, reading from her memoirs, "Open."

It was a pretty good-sized crowd. (And it didn't hurt that she was reading about her first threesome.)

Next up was Regina Lynn, who graciously brought free copies of her book "The Sexual Revolution 2.0" for everyone.

She read a steamy-as-hell passage confessing her lust for - and the eventual blow-jobbing of - her co-worker.

Next up was Rob Roberge. He read two pieces, the crowd favorite being his tale of why and how he got a cock ring. (Not for the faint of heart, but hilarious all the same.)

And last but not least, Eugene S. Robinson reading from his new book, "Fight."

And then, to finish off the night, there was the dildo-wall photo (thanks for starting the trend, Marty!) From left to right, Jenny Block, Eugene S. Robinson, Regina Lynn, me and Rob Roberge.

Thanks again to everyone who attended, everyone who read, and - of course - Freddy and Eddy's for hosting the event. July's theme is "Surprises," and it's going to be a wild one. Won't you join us?
