New woman-centric sex toy store She Bop opens its naughty and nice arms to the community

Co-owners Jeneen Doumitt and Evy Cowan

Even in a bad economy people usually continue to drink and to have sex. Just as bars as full as they ever were, so too can a burgeoning sex toy shop thrive in the downturn.

At least that is the hope of Evy Cowan and Jeneen Doumitt, two long time friends, who just opened, She Bop, an adult boutique specializing in non-toxic body […]

Stuff you don’t want to miss this week

Unfortunately, I am out of town and will be missing most of these fabulous events. It also means that because of their sheer number I cannot preview all that I would like, but each are in the calendar and I want to give you a quick heads up on the ones you absolutely should not miss.

Tonight

If you don’t already have plans be sure to check out Poison Waters […]

‘Original Plumbing’ inaugural issue showcases FTM sexuality and culture

Editors Amos Mac (L) and Rocco Kayiatos pose with the first issue or 'Original Plumbing'

‘Pornography’ and ‘Greek Pete’ at PLGFF, a comparison review

'Pornography'

This weekend saw yours truly at two of the most boytastic movies of the weekend. Both Pornography and Greek Pete held graphic gay male sex as integral to the plot, though the message and approach was vastly different.

PLGFF opening weekend previews

'Patrik, Age 1.5'

Today starts the big weekend for Portland’s 13th Annual Lesbian and Gay Film Festival with a whopping 8 films. How that fits into a weekend I’m just not sure.

Tonight begins with Patrick, Age 1.5 at 7:30. A picturesque gay couple attempt to adopt a baby boy, only to have their white picket fence world upturned when a brooding teenager shows up. A perfect opening night […]

Sneak peek of Beau Breedlove’s Unzipped cover

Beau Breedlove on the cover of Unzipped magazine

Though the print issue (as if anyone cared…you can print out the picture to put above your bed right?) will not be on newsstands until April 7th, Unzipped has released the cover photo of Portland’s infamous mayor canoodler Beau Breedlove. (Breedlove had an affair with Mayor Sam Adams quite near his 18th birthday, just in case you missed that…) And I […]
