This month there will be seventeen new paper racks out on the streets of Portland and Seattle carrying Exotic. And we have plenty more on the way. Distribution manager, Rex Breathes, tells me we will not rest until there's an Exotic paper rack on every downtown corner of every city on the west coast.

It's a big time of year for our kind of movies. Pin-Up Queen, thousand-time Playboy/Penthouse covergirl, and Baywatch star Pamela Anderson's Barb Wire opens in early May, and 33-year-old Demi Moore's Striptease, opens on June 7. Moore received 12.5 million-- the highest fee ever paid an actress-- for stripping on celluloid. Burt Reynolds co-stars as a sleazy South Florida politician. Moore's 7-year-old daughter Rumer (who also has a part in the flick) when asked by mommy which part she liked best said, "When your bra came off!" Says hubby Bruce Willis, "Wait till you see her." Says Moore,"I grind and bump enough to make the $12 million worth it."

Meanwhile, up north in Seattle, Erotic City informer John Hoffman of the Community for Creative Chaos sent us this community service information:

Through the wonderful workings of the Washington State Public Disclosure Law (RCW 42.17), citizens can now order erotic video tapes directly from government officials.

Here's all you need to do, kids. Send a letter to Ms. Londi Lindell, City Attorney, City of Federal Way, 33530 1st Way South, Federal Way, WA 980003-6210. Say this in your letter...

"Under the Washington State Public Disclosure Law, I would like to obtain a copy of a document in your possession, specifically the one video tape of a dancer at the Deja Vu establishment in Federal Way, allegedly fondling the clothed genital area of an undercover police officer. This is the same tape presented to the Law and Justice Committee of the Washington State Senate on January 23, 1996 and viewed by the Federal Way City Council on August 15, 1995.

Thanks and have an erotic day!"

Enclose a check or money order for a mere $5, made out to City of Federal Way. Be sure to write upon the money order that this is for an erotic dancer tape! In a short while -- by government standards -- you will get a brief video depicting, in graphic detail, how the King County Police Department and the City of Federal Way use your tax dollars to persecute acts between consenting adults.

Amaze friends and family with your mastery of public disclosure law. Great fun at your next party. Be the first in your neighborhood to order smut from the pillars of purity in the great city of Federal Way.

In addition to strip clubs, adult bookstores and peep shows, there are a couple of Adult Malls on Highway 99. These places don't refer to themselves as such, but that's what they are. Maybe adult strip malls would be better. Both malls are located south of the airport around 290th Street.

They are like any other strip mall; a bunch of shops in a straight row right off the highway with plenty of parking. Yet nearly all the stores appeal to a male clientele.

The first Adult Mall includes Video Blue, a store we don't like because they won't distribute our magazine. Love Pantry has an outlet, one of several around the area. This store appeals to women as well as men. Lots of sexy clothing and soft core porn videos. The Holiday Spa and Kay's Massage are right next door to each other. We've never been inside, instead letting our imaginations wander when we see these two doorways. For drinks you can stop off at friendly Clyde's pub after a friendly session at one of the spas. An International Longshoremen's and Warehouse Union office is in the complex for working men in need of relaxation. For guys who need training in street fighting, check out the Progressive Fighting Arts club for lessons in the martial arts. One store that seems out of place here is Born Again. No, not a fundie Christian place; it's a store for tot's clothing.

The other Adult Mall, a few blocks south, is home to three of our favorite sports: X-otic Tan, T&A Video and Bookstore, and Young's Pipe and Tobacco. All three outlets carry Exotic Magazine. Two spas are in the complex: Atarasi's and the Crystal's. Four other stores catering to men fill in the complex: a military surplus store, a barber shop, a tattoo parlor and a fishing gear store.

Happy shopping.
