I just published this interview with the great fetish artist Jay E. Moyes at my SEX FILES column at the shortandsweetnyc site (as well as on their L.A. site). And as much as I like bragging about all Chris and I get up to, the reason I am alerting you to the above is that we are going to talk to Jay this very week, record the episode, and get the show up and running as soon as we can.
In what Chris revealed to me last week when we were going through the guests we hope to get on for upcoming episodes, he mentioned a trip and visit he had way back when with Jay. Now certainly, Chris has been writing erotica and was active in the San Francisco scene a good decade before I was (although it’s not that Chris is that much older than me, it’s just that he was one of those guys who was more adventurous from an early age, unlike me who took a little longer to come around) and knows lots of folks. But as I have found with my fellow erotic artists, film producers, adult performers, kink organizers, dominas, and writers, our world is a small one indeed.
But then I realize this is probably true for all of us, right? No matter what your profession might be, the hobby you take to, an interest you might share with a few others, haven’t you found time, and again, that you often come to slap your forehead when meeting somebody as you realize that you both know some guy or gal or that you have heard of one another through a third party? And with social media, the world has been made even smaller, albeit we might not ever meet the people we are acquainted with.
I like this idea. I like meeting new people, hearing about somebody or they me, and finally hooking up with them either across an email or bumping into them in person (something I am so looking forward to doing again, whenever the fear lifts). I certainly loved getting to know Jay, and I know you will too.
Just remember it’s a small world, but I wouldn’t want to paint it, as Steven Wright says.
