Orgasmic Chemistry in Baltimore


Jess Beaton

Jess Beaton writes "Orgasmic Chemistry," a sex column for the Johns Hopkins University Newsletter. News story in the Baltimore Sun.

From the Sun article:

After Jess Beaton's boss recovered from his initial embarrassment, "Orgasmic Chemistry" became kind of "an office joke" - which got old fast.

"It was funny the first couple of times," she said. "And then it was like, shut up. After a while it was like, let's talk about human rights in Africa. But they always wanted to talk about the sex column."

In her superiors' eyes, she said, the column ultimately seemed to eclipse her professional insights, and almost her whole presence.

Another writer who was a little down on her column experience has been at it the longest. A graduate student at New York University, 29-year-old Yvonne Fulbright has churned out "Sexpert Tells All" for the past four years.

True, the publicity facilitated the promotion of her first book, The Hot Guide to Safer Sex, and helped secure her an agent for a second (at the moment called Twenty Minute Tantric)...

...Or we can just let her give herself a hand.

I'm marking that down as the best comment ever on the Smudge.

Keoki, surely this is good enough to make up for my Star Wars comment? You know it is.
