Sex Workers Literati Night " Love and Pain
On February 4th the Happy Ending Lounge in NYC was home for the monthly gathering of the Sex Workers Literati with its theme being "Love and Pain hosted by Audacia Ray and David Henry Sterry. The 1st Thursday of the month the Happy Ending Lounge fills to standing room only. This month Sex Workers Literati welcomed three very talented members of the adult industry. Director, writer and actress Nica Noelle, Writer ,Blogger and Porn Star Tyler Knight and AVN 's 2010 Best Newcomer Dane Cross. Each took turns that night reading some of their private writings.
Nica has been very busy as a Writer and Director for Sweetheart Video and Sweet Sinner , she flew out to New York sharing her writings with other avid readers along with Tyler and Dane. Also reading that night was Mistress Astrid a pro Domme and lifestyler, ReverendJen ,playwrite ,columnist and the list goes on and on. Last but not least Alex Kinney who had everyone in the audience enjoying his story and cheering him on!
Dane Cross read a few of his own poems which left one thinking and wondering if he is all up their..lol At first glance Dane doesn't look or act like the "typical " porn star, look though are very deceiving. In person he is very reserved and soft spoken and somewhat shy. Not what you would except from AVN's 2010 Best New Comer.
Tyler Knight on the other hand was recognized by a few fans before the reading started. I myself enjoyed talking to him especially since Tyler was one of my first men that I enjoyed watching as a reviewer and one of my favorites! Tyler's work has been published in several print and online literary magazines including Thieves Jargon, Thirst for Fire, Sex and Murder, and Ronin Press. He also writes a monthly column for a woman's magazine, For The Girls. In November of 2009, he joined the Subtle Dig network of bloggers. He recently completed his first novel.
Ladies, the Tyler Knight who you see on screen is nothing compared to the man in person. Tyler is very much the gentlemen and very humble. You can see why he was chosen as a spokesperson for PlayGirl and the fact that he as that sensual personality and that look that makes the ladies want to see still more of him!
During the two hours I spent listening to the readers, I did have the pleasure of meeting many people that are regulars at these events. I think I shall be making more trips to the Happy Ending Lounge from now on!
