Joel Stein gets naughty again

Los Angeles Magazine coverRemember last year when Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein was billed as a guest instructor on oral sex at Babeland, then dropped out after we and others wrote about it? Well, now he writes one of the main pieces in the October Sex Issue of Los Angeles magazine. "My Life as a Very Naughty Boy" isn't online yet, but the ToC blurb says Stein "explores the seamy side and receives a stern talking-to from his dominatrix." The sex story that is online has J.R. Moehringer exploring how actor David Spade, his high school classmate, became "the world’s greatest ladies’ man." Also in the issue: Steve Erickson provides a cultural history of the celebrity sex tape. Also online but not about sex: RJ Smith on Arianna Huffington and the Huff Post and our own Mark Lacter writing about Mattel. Not online and not about sex: a review saying the kinks (sorry) have been worked out at Anisette, and Anne Taylor Fleming on gay marriage.
