I am not going to say that last weekend’s AVN show was overlong, poorly produced, and patently unsexy; I’ll let everyone who was there say that instead. Tonight, on the other hand, vivacious hotel brawler Jamye Waxman hosts her monthly “Sexy Tales & Other Intimate Acts” here in fantastic L.A. at El Cid.
It is a funny, fast-moving, and sexy evening’s entertainment.
Waxman debuted the show last month. Tonight’s event makes use of the date—1/11/11—to explore the theme of “The One.”
“I’m just so happy that it rocks,” Waxman says. “I think it’s because there are performances that play on both the senses of sight and sound, and broaden the idea of what is sexy.”
Among tonight’s performers at the Spanish-style nightclub on Sunset Blvd. in Silverlake are Nina Hartley, Brian Mazo, Fogelfoot (NB: This is a band I am intimately connected with), and Hula Hoop dancer Suzy Lee Loew, whose performance last month was riveting.
“The sexiness comes from the confidence,” I think, says Loew, who sounded surprised that what she was doing was sexy. “Hula Hooping is a dance that’s integrated with my body, so I love my tool and my tool loves me.”
Loew was certified by a body known as Hoopnotica and performs with a collective called Machina Candeo. Tonight she will be performing to The Raconteurs’ “Hands.”
Tickets are five bucks, and the first 69 audience members (Get It??) receive a sexy prize.
