    Robin Byrd's New Show Was a Pisser!

    "Get out your boxes because she's ready to bang them!

    I argue the point in today's New York Times. (Yes, I've been quoted in the Times two days in a row now! Could anyone be more relevant?)

    Worst Parties Of All Time: LaToya And The Snakes

    One of the worst bashes in my very vivid memory bank was the 1991 party for model Kim Charlton Hunter at a downtown indoor/outdoor space called Amazon Village.

    Male Escorts Get Extra Kinky In A Money Crunch

    My newest column is a dizzying look at the world of hustlers and the way they're trying to stay afloat as disposable income stays under as tight a watch as my privates.
