Where's the love? That's the question I found myself asking my editorial staff once we'd come up with our final list of story ideas for this year's Sex Issue. I looked at the list and realized that, for this issue that marks the coming of Valentine's Day, there wasn't much about wholesome love. Hey, what did I expect? CityBeat's an alternative weekly, and alt-weekly writers just don't think that way. You want soul-nourishing tales of romance, you've come to the wrong place. Take your business elsewhere.
If, on the other hand, you want a quirky look at sex and sexiness, read on. In the next few pages, we'll introduce you to some strange and scary objects for the bedroom, survey some friends who took sex-enhancement pills, talk to the local author of an intergalactic-sex-romp book, show you how to find tantalizing fun in the kitchen cupboard, tour strip clubs for the best eats and meet up with two local bands with sex-y names.
Happy bizarro Valentine's Day!
