Live Girl Review [VIDEO]

About this original series

Live Girl Review offers up reviews of sexual culture and media: books, art, and yes - porno and sex toys. Not always well-behaved and tasteful, but always smart and critical, while never losing sight of that whole “fun” thing.The show is hosted by Audacia Ray and features special guests like sex educator Jamye Waxman. In addition to being available on and via RSS, the video show is also available on iTunes. Live Girl Review was launched in November 2007 as a short format show; one product was featured in each two to three minute episode. After seventy episodes, the show transitioned into a longer format in August 2008. Each Marathon Episode features a book, movie, and sex toy review, as well as features like sex tips, products to avoid, and a fan girl moment, as well as giveaways for commenters.Marathon Episodes are posted on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, with the occasional Quickie in between.ABOUT THE HOSTAudacia Ray edits the Village Voice sexuality blog Naked City and produces the video show Naked City TV.

      Yay, its the third episode! Unfortunately, Live Girl Review had a bit of a set back last week - the show has been deleted from iTunes. I think it's probably because of “strong prevalence of sexual content,” which is listed in their terms of service as a reason shows may not be included. I haven't gotten a response back from iTunes Abuse - if anyone has suggestions for me, please let me know. It would be a real bummer if the show wasn't on iTunes. In less crappy news: the winner of the goodies ...

      Ah! It's been too long! But I haven't abandoned ship, I've just been insanely busy and had to let Live Girl Review fall quiet for a while. As I say in the video, I'm coming off of my first semester of teaching at the college level - human sexuality, of course. I've also been very busy with my new job as the editor of the Village Voice sexuality blog Naked City, for which I also produce a weekly video show, which goes live on Mondays. But, no more excuses! More episodes of Live Girl Review are ...
