Letters 4.05

Your mag is great. It hits the spot. I think about it all day and sometimes I embarrass myself with hot daydreams.

The photo of Finesse was gorgeous in color on the cover of the (March) magazine and it’s also gorgeous in duotone (or whatever) online. My compliments to your first-class publication and the obvious effort that goes into the editing and design. Keep up the good work!

Dear Gary,
What a great article [ Gambling's Not Just For Gangsters Anymore, part 1, October 1996 ]. I am a recovered compulsive gambler that has to be watching over his shoulders at every turn because there is so much advertising in my area (NYC Metro) that says that gambling is OK. Just scratch here, pick 4, pick 5, pick 10. But when I was down at Atlantic City about to go over on the deep end, there was nothing there other than the experience of having dealt with other addictions to let me know that you (sic) have a problem.
The fact of the matter is that we need some of the wisdom of your article to be available to more people. One of the greatest aides that I had in overcoming my gambling problem and (getting) back into the mainstream was a book that I read entitled When Your Luck Runs Out, by Dr. Custer. Talk about Custer and luck running out (joke).
Great article. Keep up the good work.

Dear Editors,
So here’s what happened. I was walking down the street, NW 23rd Ave., to be exact, when out of the corner of my eye I spotted one of the sexiest women I have ever seen. I stopped dead in my tracks and almost swallowed my tongue. This dark-haired beauty was staring out at me from a window in a blue vending machine. It was the October issue of Exotic Magazine and the covergoddess, I would later find out, was Kat. Nervously I checked the street to make sure I was alone and thrust my hands deep into the pockets of my jeans and fumbled wildly. It didn’t take long for me to pull from my jeans the two quarters I needed to take this beautiful woman home with me. After the initial “private quality time” I spent with Kat, I felt free to casually browse the rest of your magazine and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the production and the other models. Two prime examples are Mairage from the “Sugar Daddys” ad on page 14 and Azia that “pretty young thing” from the “Palace of Pleasure” ad on page 41. My God, I don’t think I’ll ever stop moaning. Besides being stunning, these two women stand way out above the rest, literally. May I be so bold as to suggest that in the future, should you choose to feature those two mouth watering queens of nipple erections, please supply your readers with 3-D glasses to catch the fleshy nuggets as they leap off the page. But enough about my own personal fetishes, (by the way, if any of you know of a woman in the Portland area with nipples the length of AA batteries, please let me know). I’d like to address the real reason I’m writing this. In my worthless opinion, the weak link in your publication is the articles. They seem to lack direction, a point of view, honesty, attitude and, most importantly, they don’t seem to cover much in terms of adult entertainment. Correct me if I’m wrong, but someone buying your magazine is looking to get his or her rocks off, not read a meandering essay on Halloween or an expose on gambling. Even the video reviews were as limp as RuPaul at a topless bar. And that’s where I come in. I’d like to help. I’d like to contribute to your effort, something more in tune with the subjects at hand.
– Jeffrey M. Smith, Portland
