Sizzling Summer Sex at IN THE FLESH

What do I think of when I hear the word "summer?" The sun, of course! And what goes along with the sun? Sweaty bodies. Sweaty sex bodies jaunting around in very little clothing with rays of light reflecting off their glistening skin. Nearly naked bodies rubbing together in the heat of the night...

 It's June and it's time for Hot Summer Sex at Hustler! We have some spicy authors reading words hot enough to melt the icing off of the delicious dessert goodies supplied by the Hustler cafe. We've got three readers in the flesh, one phoning in for our "phone sex" segments and our monthly review by Kathleen Bradean from Erotica Revealed. Join us on Wednesday, June 10th at 8PM.

Eden loves shoes, tattoos, art, younger men, reading smutty books, chocolate and sex, of course, not necessarily in that order.

You can read more about her on her website:, on her MySpace page or her group blog,

She will be reading from her story SOUL STRANGERS, which is part of the first Harlequin Spice anthology in print, NAUGHTY BITS. 

Jolene Hui ( is a writer of literary and erotic fiction and about anything else her fingers feel like typing. She's been known to write a horror column for The Flesh Farm and a hockey column for Inside Hockey. One of Tonto Books' first authors, her literary fiction has been published in their Tonto Short Stories, Tonto Christmas Stories, and More Tonto Short Stories anthologies. She's also been published by a variety of newspapers, magazines, websites, Cleis Press, Pretty Things Press, Logical-Lust and Alyson Books. Her short play Addendum was produced as part of the Northpark Playwright Festival in 2003 and her short play Feather and Magazines premiered as part of the San Diego Actors Alliance Festival in 2004. Two of her erotic short stories were chosen for a juried Literary Showcase as part of the 2009 Seattle Erotic Art Festival. She still holds onto her dream that she will one day be the mother of a Standard Poodle and frequently daydreams about cheesecake. She is based in Los Angeles.

She will be reading from her story The Salsa Bar that is included in the book Playing With Fire, edited by Alison Tyler (please see below). 

Patrick Julian was born and raised in rural Concord, Michigan, the son of a factory worker father and librarian mother.  Ted Nugent lived one mile away, and his amplifiers could occasionally be heard ringing across the fields late at night.  On a Wednesday in the summer following his graduation from high school, Patrick simultaneously received first prize in the Michigan Republican Party essay contest (in absentia), and engaged in semi-public indecency (in person) backstage during a performance of the nation's last traveling tent show.

In the intervening years, Patrick has received a BA in Performance from Northern Michigan University, and an MA and Ph.D in Theater History from Bowling Green.  He taught briefly at a university near the Texas panhandle before having a mid-20s mid-life crisis and waking up to find himself living in Los Angeles.  As a writer, Patrick has published in both academic and pop media (and would like to thank Instinct magazine for that first shot in "Let the Breeder Speak").  His screenplays have won contest and festival awards, and a Bloods and Crips docudrama "The King of Watts" was produced in 2007.  Patrick also writes for the stage; his children's play "Shadow gets a Black Eye" was an American College Theater Festival award winner, and a one-woman show that he co-wrote, "Inconclusive Woman", is scheduled to appear off-Broadway in the Summer of 2009.  In addition to the script for "Inconclusive Woman", Patrick wrote the lyrics for two songs in the show- "Them Elmer and Geraldine Blues" and "The Vagina Song", and currently has a song on the 2009 release from electronica artist Bad Boy Bill.

When he's not locked in his head writing or blogging for the Independent Television Network Tomorrowpictures.TV, Patrick can be found listening to country music in ratty little bars around Los Angeles or camping and backpacking across the west.  His summer selection tonight is a story about ice cream and sex and all the infinite possibilities therein... 

He will be reading a piece called "32 Flavors."

Alison Tyler has been called "Erotica's Own Superwoman," a "Trollop with a Laptop," and a "literary siren." She is the editor of 50 racy anthologies including the upcoming Alison's Wonderland (Harlequin), the author of 25 naughty novels including Tiffany Twisted (Virgin), and the author of more than 1,000 short stories (for publishers ranging from HarperCollins to Plume). She can be found at Trollop With a Laptop and Bastard Life, often drinking shots in the dark. She’s currently working on a novel about ugly shirts. Or wife swapping. She’s not sure which. But she’d better figure out soon. At least, before people start going home with the wrong shirt. Or wife.

She will be reading from her book Playing With Fire which has one of the sexiest book covers I have ever seen...

All of these hot readers will be accompanied by Stan Kent who will be DJing and hosting for the evening. There will be giveaways of Hustler Merchandise and some goodie samples. Remember, there is free parking behind the store at 8920 W. Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069 (310)-860-9009 - See you there!
