What do we do when we're alone with ourselves?
Solo time was a running theme through this past year. Not enough. Too much. Endless masturbation or endless searches for the opportunity. I had just the right amount of Steve Ronin, my roommate and collaborator here, and suspect he also had plenty of me.
We focused on availability this year. Who could shoot themselves? Sloan Cox. Who was quarantined with someone who could operate a camera? Jessa Jordan with Reid Castle. What could we do with archival footage and a new spin? The Eye: Elaboration.
Rain DeGrey takes us on a short discussion of how to remove a bra, in case we're able to partner again one day.
As far as galleries go, we've got a self-shot portfolio from photographer Jessica Yupele and a portfolio from illustrator and pin maker Amliv Sotomayor. Sloan is back, this time with glass toys. And GoAskAlex returns in a nude pin-up set outdoors. Closing out our still images are Scott Goodman with his Anthropornmorphic cartoons, and a set of me by Steve Ronin in delicately embroidered red lingerie.
Articles span Vex Ashley's ICON tribute to Cosey Fanny Tutti, Jessa Jordan on the Whorearchy, and interviews with Amliv and Jessica. Fancy Feast writes directly about masturbation, and Bella Vendetta takes us on stage at a strip club. Nahum Garcia writes about porn giant MindGeek in both English and Spanish.
We hope you enjoy this issue.
