Behind the Scenes Video!

October 20, 2008

I bet you were wondering what it was like to be on set with twelve sex bloggers and their suitcases full of outfits, weren’t you? Well, thankfully Audacia Ray brought her video camera. This behind the scenes video has almost eight minutes of footage, showing you what went into the prep for the 2009 Sex Bloggers Calendar. And if this isn’t enough, there’s one more video coming up – the second one will be released the week before the NYC launch party.

NYC Sex Blogger Calendar gets International Attention

October 6, 2008

Yes, that’s correct folks, we have garnered some overseas attention from the German site, Lust & Mehr. That would be Lust and More to us English speaking types.

You can go to the post, Bloggerinnen make Sexblogger Calendars and read it in German or have more fun with the translation I got through Yahoo’s Babel Fish:

Nothing is than the looking business – and correctly dumb to work, as it is sometimes demanded in the Bourlesque, is still more difficult – as one in the video to see more difficult can.

The film show I you today for a certain reason. There will be white a calendar the New York Sex blogger to give – among other things with as well-known names as Audacia Ray (Waking Vixen) and Rachel Kramer Bussel (Lusty lady) – like erotic, naked or otherwise as publicly accessible made a blueprint it, I not yet – Audacia knows itself however at least well out, how the business with the desire functions.

Now it is missing actually only to put together itself that all CW-Bloggerinnen, in order to arrange a calendar (on-line one hands completely, friends) – perhaps: “My dearest Christmas present and I” – and for shrinking from among you I would have there also still another solution: Bloggerinnen naked under the winter coat. Now, I know, I white, one cannot have everything – above all no good Bloggerinnen as Bourlesquetänzerinnen.

Not sure if this is a good or bad thing. But it sure makes for fun reading.

If you’ve got some real German to fall back on and want to provide us with a less comical translation, please feel free to use the comments or to email.

In the meantime, I think we’ll just say thanks to Lust & Mehr in the hope that they’re trumpeting our cause or at the very least aren’t making too much fun of us!

We have goodies and we want to give them to you

October 5, 2008

We have a lot of fabulous sponsors and you can (and should) check them each out in the sidebar and on our sponsors and friends page.

This week, courtesy of Candida Royalle and Natural Contours, we have the PETITE PINK RIBBON to give away. All you have to do to win it is buy a calendar this week and thanks to the magic of random numbers generated by atmospheric noise (I just love that concept even if I have no clue what the hell it means) you could win this pretty-in-pink ergonomically curved vibe.

Here at NYC Sex Blogger Calendar we are grateful to have sponsors that also want to give back to their community and Natural Contours ® is donating 10% of the sales proceeds from the PETITE PINK RIBBON™ to Breast Cancer Action (BCAction.org). So if you don’t win it, purchasing it on your own is a way to make a contribution towards this dreadful disease that afflicts so many.

I recently twittered about losing one of my oldest friends. Janet had breast cancer in her 20’s. She managed to fight long and hard and with an unfailingly cheerful upbeat attitude that made me admire her even more. Finally, after nearly thirty years of on and off again remissions, cancer attacked her brain. So today when I return from Florida, it will be to my dear friend’s memorial service. I will miss you, Janet. When I think of you, it will be your will to survive, the way you always smiled through the pain and refused to concede that comes to mind. And all our silly teenage adventures.

Congratulations, Minx. I hope you love your prize.
