I believe this is perhaps the oddest thing that has ever been asked of me.Posted: December 18, 2006
I recieved this in my Myspace inbox this afternoon.
I’m currently working on a piece for the award-winning sexuality and culture magazine Nerve.com, and was hoping to interview you for my article. I saw in your profile that you work in a comic store.
My piece is a column entitled “Sex Advice from Comic Book Store Clerks.”
“SAF…” is a regular, weekly Nerve feature that asks real people for “sex advice” in response to common problems.
I’d need to ask you for answers to a bunch of general sex questions. I would need to include your first name and a photo of you, but I wouldn’t use your last name (unless you want me to!).
Can you let me know if you would be interested in participating? If so, I will send you a list of questions via email and you can send your answers back to me.
Thanks much! Looking forward to hearing from you.
I am used to getting crazy shit from Myspace but really this takes the cake.
Seriously though, sex advice from me? I get uncomfortable selling people the porn comics we keep behind the counter.
