Netball Floozy

In Sex Drive by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

No wanking this Saturday morning because I had a date playing netball on a car park by the beach in Santa Monica. The last time I played netball I was 15 years old at my school Tremough Convent in Cornwall. Now I am nearly 50 and it turns out I am a much better player than I was. I’m convinced …

Stealth Masturb

In Sex Drive by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

Someone just asked me why I haven’t been writing about wanking during my trip to America. Good question, Sex Drive, is after, all about masturbation. But the thing is, solo sex on the road isn’t as easy as you might think. Being a house guest, for instance, is a full time job in itself. Right now, I’m staying in the …

I’m trying to track down the real life version of this poster: Maybe I’ll find it at the Academy Awards party this weekend. There is talk of a triple decker naked Oscar penthouse pool party with the lesbian mafia somewhere in LA on Sunday (guests including the Who’s Afraid of Vagina Woolf chick and the Go Fish legends including Guinevere Turner who …

ARE YOU HOMELESS?

In Sex Drive, Uncategorized by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

“Are you homeless?” comes this voice from across the parking lot at the Silverlake 7/11 store. Here I am, minding my own business.   I guess I do look a bit like a homeless person. Or at least a heroin addict, tucking into Cherry Garcia ice cream and a packet of Hershey chocolate on a rubbish bin at 4pm on …

Stepford Wife Pills

In Sex Drive by Stephanie Theobald6 Comments

I’m debating whether to do a story the Sunday Times want me to write about the new female Viagra. It’s called Addyi (Fibanserin). It was legalised in the US in October, although it sounds like a load of old rubbish to me. The way male Viagra works is by sending blood to the dick. Addyi works like an anti-depressant. So …

How To Pervert A Hairbrush

In Sex Drive by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

So it turned out that Madison Young’s “anal fisting play” was about way more than ha, ha anal fisting. Number one, this woman, née Tina Butcher, can seriously act. Number two, her one-woman show, Reveal All, Fear Nothing is a play that anyone who considers themselves “Sex Positive” or indeed, interested in sex, desire, money and spirituality on any level, needs to …

More Mystery Body Parts

In Sex Drive by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

Here I am at THAT play last night in San Francisco. Guess which body part I have my head through? Madison Young’s play, Reveal All, Fear Nothing was indeed a very revealing experience but more than that, it was the best piece of theatre I’ve seen in a long time. The after-party at the Armory porn star bar was intense. I …

Stuffed Toys

So, I can hardly wait for my most unusual Valentine’s Day date ever, a trip to see Madison Young’s play whose title I keep forgetting and which I think of as “The Fisting Play.” It’s actually called “Reveal All, Fear Nothing” which is a bit like the premise of Sex Drive. Here are a couple of the instructions on the …

HOWL!

In Sex Drive by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

  Today, I went to check out the famous Beatnik bookstore City Lights.   Check out on the upper windows, it says, “Open Mind,” “Open Books,” “Open Heart.”If only. City Lights used to be the radical beating heart of San Francisco back in the late 1950s when subversive fag poet Allen Ginsberg, read Howl! to an elated audience. I decided …

Throwback Thursday

In thowback Thursday by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

Here I am with 50 Cent, circa 2006 at a Giorgio Armani party in London when I was the party editor for Harper’s Bazaar UK. Those were the good old days of HB, before it got turned into the in-house magazine for Camilla Parker Bowles. Back in the day, I’d sit in the office with editor, Lucy Yeomans, and she’d go, …
