Hot Summer Sex at In The Flesh

Summer was in the air - and so was hot sex - at the last In The Flesh at Hustler Hollywood on June 10. The traditional LA overcast June glooms may have been clouding the skies and chilling the temperatures but at Hustler Hollywood it was Hot, Hot, and Hotter as Eden Bradley, Jolene Hui, Patrick Julian and Alison Tyler (giving darn good phone sex) gathered at the supermarket of sex on Sunset Boulevard where many celebs go to get their caffeine and sex fixes. In The LA Times Penn Jilette of the Penn & Teller weirdo magician show revealed that when in town he stays at the Four Seasons and likes to hang out late in the flesh at the Hustler cafe drinking decaf espresso. Now that's a good trick, and one you should do too, only do it when In The Flesh is in session - every second Wednesday of every month at 8pm! And could it be a coincidence that the next Showtime episode of the Penn & Teller is devoted to the orgasm.

And for my next trick I (Stan Kent) opened the evening with some hot summer sex-inspired spinning as the crowd gathered, of which there was a lively bunch thanks to our great authors getting the word out that they'd be getting their words out - In The Flesh.
I opened the readings with the Erotica Revealed review of the month - Boy Crazy - Coming Out Erotica and we had a great discussion about whether heterosexual people could/do get turned on by gay porn. It was thought-provoking in terms of what makes for good smut regardless of gender or sexual preferences and lead perfectly into the fist author reading from Eden Bradley, who'd shared that she likes to watch gay porn because you see so many more hard cocks than in regular hetero porn. She had quite a crew of supporters with her who along with the rest of us enjoyed the tasty nibbles and drinks courtesy of the Hustler Hollywood cafe. The Hustler cafe staff, lead by Alex, do a great job of hosting In The Flesh. It was cool to see the scrolling lighted announcement of our In The Flesh reading series flash across the wall above the register area. All the books were in place thanks to Hollie and Alex and the stage was set for some hot summer sex.
Eden treated her fans to a delightful story called Soul Strangers from the aptly titled Harlequin Spice Naughty Bits about sex with a tattooed stranger on a beach. Eden's delivery was captivating, all the more remarkable because she'd mysteriously thrown her back out of whack just a few days before. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm????

She apologized for not wearing stilettos as she is usually want to do - and we are usually wanting her to do - but the wedges she had on were still definitely sexy, especially when she revealed under pressure that she'd thrown her back out cooking an omelet. Yeah, right the crowd said, and Eden, who had already admitted that the story she'd read was inspired by true events (but just how much of it was real is left as an exercise for the audience) went on to clarify that her back was already acting up because of an amazing session with an industrial strength vibrator that her boyfriend had acquired to help with a stiff neck. The stiff part we bought but the neck bit a stretch right down to the cock more like... This was thrilling real life stuff that dovetailed perfectly from Eden's fictional story, and her frank honesty about how this plug-in vibrator had taken her from just plain horny to screaming, neck thrashing, leg melting, brain mushing, pussy soaking orgasm in about 60 seconds had us all wanting to join her. And Eden was ever so kind, accommodating and thoughtful and provides the link to where you can get one of these amazing machines and all that we at In The Flesh ask is that you tell us at an upcoming night how you made out with the masturbating monster of not just good but GREAT vibrations. And we provide this info with all disclaimers of liability if you too throw out your back, or your lover's back or lovers' backs as you launch yourself and them into permanent residency in happy land. No wonder Eden (and her boyfriend) had such smiles on their faces.

The beast beater is a Brookstone Theraspa Turbo-(it costs $50 and is also available on Amazon and the crafty horndogs at Brookstone/Amazon give you free shipping if you spend $100 so buy two and give one to someone you love and lust after). Eden says, and we believe her, boy, how we really believe her, that her trick is to use the side with the textured roller ball.

Next up was our own Jolene Hui, the always provocative and prolific co-host of In The Flesh-LA at Hustler Hollywood, and she continued the sex on the beach theme reading The Salsa Bar from the new Alison Tyler collection, Playing With Fire. And she also continued the true confessions theme revealing that her story was inspired by true events. The key word here is "inspired." Jolene was very inspired on a beach in Nice, but like Eden, she didn't reveal just how much of it was her very horny imagination at work and play. As with all of Jolene's writings (and readings) the imagery she uses is powerful erection or pussy wet producing. You should go out and get Playing With Fire just to read this story - all the others are amazing too - but The Salsa Bar is truly a delight featuring Jolene's hot mom - dare I say hot MILF - encouraging her to have sex on the beach during their Mom and Daughter buddy bonding summer sojourn on the French Riviera. Now that's what I calla great Mom. That Jolene, or rather Jolene's character had sex with not just one, but two guys on the tour is just plain poetic. And yeah, Mom did make sure that her daughter had a condom - or two...After those two stories it was hard to be the host, and it got even harder in our next segment where we had the pleasure of phone sex from the delightful "Erotica's Own Superwoman", the "Trollop with a Laptop", Ms. Alison Tyler who told us all what little she was wearing - "diaphanous" floated from the phone and around our ears - and our imaginations provide the images of her very high spiked heels digging into the floor as she gave us very good phone from so many miles away, but she could have been right in the room, sitting on our laps, grinding as way as she read from her Exposed collection.
Our last reader was Patrick Julian and he proved that dishing out hot summer sex isn't just the prerogative of hot sexy female authors. Patrick built upon the foreplay of Eden, Jolene and Alison with his yummy tale "32 Flavors" about how buying ice cream and a chance encounter at the Hollywood Ralph's grocery store lead to some hot melting sex later with taste treats galore. And yes, Patrick's reading was likewise inspired by true events, and judging by the smile on his face and the way he was on the edge of his seat as he read (and look closely at the picture for the strategically placed Hustler Cafe menu sign and the scrolling In The Flesh announcement ) this was more true events than imaginative flights of fucking fancy.

Thanks to Hustler Hollywood we gave away some great bags of Hustler merchandise including copies of the DVD of "The People versus Larry Flynt," condoms and Hustler coffee mugs, so the crowd could go home, watch the movie, have safe sex and have a great cup of coffee afterwards (or before).

The authors gathered in the magazine racks for a final shot of what was a night for of hot, true, sex stories and surprising revelations, but I gotta stop writing right now because I hear a buzzing and a screaming coming from the bedroom... Join us in July (July 8 - 8pm) for In The Flesh's night of Freedom Sex - fireworks guaranteed.
