Luka was sort plenty of to interview me for his Medium web site and newsletter.
How/why did you make your mind up to develop into a sexual intercourse journalist?
I do not know that I chose this path, for every se. It form of happened. In the late Nineties, there weren’t a large amount of ladies creating about sex.

I observed them more as columnists and myself more as a reporter. Much less Carrie Bradshaw, much more Gay Talese. The yr just after I moved to LA, I obtained employed by Playboy Tv to be an on-digital camera reporter on “Sexcetera,” which showcased 50 % a dozen sex reporters, of which I was 1, covering intercourse information stories about the globe. “Sexcetera” was like “60 Minutes,” but on Viagra.
