Obligatory Ramblings From The Editor
you're reading this, it's probably because you're bored; what
with all the other scintillating editorial this month--from
the Olympics to little Moby on down to the North by Northwest
Music Fest--Exotic magazine is there for you, baby. Not
to mention our new, local music column "Just Kick My Ass," and
"Sex Around The World" has a layover long enough for a quickie
in Amsterdam(ned). Wow. So, on with the party!
Now, a turd from our sponsor: "Hello, I am John Wayne Bobbitt's
manager. I was wondering if your company would be interested
in DOING AN ARTICLE AND PHOTO SPREAD ON (caps their's) John's
new film." No fucking way Jose. "This film answers some of the
most frequently asked questions about John's Penis." Thankyou
very much, but, I really don't want to know anything about John's
penis today. "Just the looks of John's penis alone (gee, I hate
the thought of John's penis being alone) is a reason to buy
the movie. It is double the size it was in John's first film."
Inflation; it's everywhere these days. "As of right now, John's
penis is the width of a beer can, it has the length of a beer
can and a half, from the base it goes straight, curves out to
the left, then straight again, then curves to the right." Jesus,
a person would need a fucking road map just to navigate from
John's balls all the way to John's urethra... which must be
in a different zip code. "If interested in distributing this
film contact me... Thanks. Robert R.Yates; CEO Risky Business"
So, cheer up. Things could be worse. You could have a penis
that's scarier than the Terwilliger curves. Or you could be
in the business of promoting John's penis. Shit, I have a hard
enough time just trying to promote my own.
October the 22nd, as the sun enters Scorpio, you will want to
enter the steamy, dark hipster bowels of Dante's red hot and
rollin' Inferno for a very special Sunday night Sinferno. The
always fabulous Marne Lucas, who gets more ink in this mag than
a rubber stamp, and Teresa Dulce (AKA, Velour and Danzine productions,
respectfully) host a benefit for Street Reach Needle Exchange
Program. Yes, needle exchange is legal in Oregon. If you were
to actually read up on this subject, you would find that needle
exchange is not enabling, but the first and most important step
in harm reduction, leading the addict to treatment. It works.
And this benefit will work you over with all the fiery entertainment
famous on Sinferno nights, plus the sexy, rowdy band, Moxy Love
Crux and much more. Furthermore, what better place for it, with
dime bags available within a good spit of the nightclub, located
at SW 3rd and Burnside. For those of you who can't get a good
needle for your old Technics turntable, this is not an opportunity
for you to finally hear your Blind Faith album with a new needle.
The turntable audiophile needle exchange benefit is still in
the works (get it).
we're on the subject of Marne Lucas and Teresa Dulce (and when
are we not), don't forget, since we covered it an entire month
ago, the coming-at-you-fast as-a-come-shot-from-Johnny-Wadd's-penis
Sex By Sexworkers Film and Video Festival, October 4th
and 5th at Cinema 21. Speaking of Wadd, the movie, Wadd:
The Life and Times of John Holmes screens October 4th, at
midnight. And on October 5th, don't miss the closing night extravahgonzo
at, you guessed it, Dante's, featuring, porn icon and STD testing
advocate, Sharon Mitchell. Exotic's own Viva Las Vegas
will perform along with other arts addicts. $10 at the door
will benefit Danzine, a non-profit magazine created by
sexworkers for sexworkers. And all that jazz.
Adult Store News
you haven't made it by Castle Superstores yet....what
in the hell are you waiting for!!! After strolling through their
vast store, we were utterly amazed at the massive selection
they offer. We're talking Walmartesque adult mega-store proportions!
Where else can you go to find an entire row of every inflatable
sex doll currently on the market! As an added treat this month,
Castle Superstores will be displaying their many wares at the
Exotic 7th anniversary party on Sunday, October 8th and during
the Ink-n-Pink Cabaret at Cocktails and Dreams on Friday, October
20th and at Dante's on Halloween. They'll be giving away door
Prizes, adult party favors and more.
is featuring 30% off all Halloween costumes--as displayed
by Sin and Sage in their red hot ads. Sorry, Sin and Sage
will be keeping theirs. Stop by to see them at any Ink-n-Pink
venue and you'll get a chance to see them peel down to the
Lingerie Shop News
back to X-otic Tan from the gang here at Exotic.
Drop by to see this month's hotty Mindy at their PDX location;
don't forget, when you're feeling adventurous away from home,
Xotic Tan has two locations in Seattle and one in Salem as
has settled into their new location two floors up from
their former shop. Sounds like a good way to enjoy an uplifting
experience... such as their special $20.00 ten minute shows
designed for when you're in a hurry.
and Honeysuckles lingerie have a wicked special
coming at you this Halloween. Thirty (count 'em) vixens are
ready to drop their best Tricks and Treats in your goody bag
for a measly $20.00 for twenty minutes (that's a dollar a
minute for all you accountants out there). Also, coming at
you this month: a complete remodel of both shops and big reopening
party. Stay tuned for more details.
Gentlemen's Club Events and News
we almost decided to change the name of the mag to Sin
this month. Perhaps you've noticed our very popular covergirl
in a majority of the ads this month; nooooo.....we're not
just lazy (though it would make life much easier at deadline
if we only had to photograph one model every month, wouldn't
it?). It's just that Sin is so damn popular in the month of
October that we were turning advertisers away at the door
for the opportunity to up their image with our sinfully sexy
You'll be able to see Sin along with 19 other vamped out tattooed
vixens appearing at five major events this month like Portland
has never seen... and may never see again. It's the Exotic
Ink-n-Pink Cabaret and Revue. This festival of tattooed
flesh will be slinging it's way through Union Jacks,
Cocktails & Dreams, The Cobalt Lounge, Jody's
and Dante's beginning on Friday the 13th and climaxing
on Halloween. With over $3000 in prizes, cash and tattoos
being given away, exotic fire and fetish acts, fortune tellers
and Halloween hijinx, why the hell would you want to miss
this? See the Ink-n-Pink section for details and specific
& Dreams keeps getting better every time we pop in.
Two new stages have been completed and the gradual transformation
into an upscale gentlemens club is well under way. And, in
case we haven't mentioned it enough already, be sure not to
miss the Ink-n-Pink Cabaret at Cocktails on Friday Oct. 20th.
Maybe you'll be able to get an upclose and personal look at
the vampiric vixens displayed in their ad on page 4. (Special
thanx to Chris, from Dante's, for donning the cape for our
Ink-n-Pink bloodletting.) Don't forget the garlic and the
crucifix; they will, however, be checking the wooden stakes
at the door.
Just like Exotic, the Riverside Corral is celebrating
their 7th Anniversary Saturday, Oct. 28th with the Corral's
top notch entertainers in blowout feature numbers. While you're
there, check out Mike's new toy. Ever had a table dance in
a barber chair? We're talking reclining, rotating, strapped
in action here. Ask your doctor first.
The Boom Boom Room is celebrating their 3rd Anniversary
on Halloween night. The Main Event is having a Halloween
Party on Friday & Saturday the 27th and 28th.
On the alternative side, check out the all new Club 5800
for parties on Friday and Saturday nights. These dances are
for those in "The Lifestyle," if you know what we mean. Sounds
like a pretty swingin' place!
