After Liverpool, London and Los Angeles, the Sex Drive Road Show touches down in New York, next Wednesday, January 16. This will be an extra special launch party as New York was where I came up with the idea of writing Sex Drive. Specifically, sitting naked in a circle of 13 women, watching an bespectacled woman called Betty Dodson prepare to do a “vulva ballet” by barking out: “Watch carefully now – when’s the last time you saw an 85-year-old snatch?”
The soirée will be hosted by the amazing sex pioneer Polly Rodriguez who hails from a much younger generation and who I came across much later on my trip. Her company (which bills itself as “an online shop for rebellious women”)is weirdly and significantly, I like to think, called Unbound which is the same name as my publisher.
Let me know if you’re in New York or if you know anyone with a rebellious streak who might like to come down to mingle and quaff and listen to a reading from a book that takes over from where Thelma and Louise left off
The address is: Unbound, 6 West 14th Street, Unit 3B, New York, NY 10011
