The Lust Issue 2012

Nekkid models, toys, and we'll share our favorite responses to our fifth Live and Lust Poll



Valentine's Day is around the corner, which means it's time for MT's seventh annual Lust Issue and our fifth annual Live & Lust Poll. Through the years, dear readers, you've shared a lot. You've charted the rise and fall of libidos against the ups and downs of the economy, inventoried your toy boxes, your favorite soundtracks for getting it on, your fantasies, your past paramours, your fondest memories and regrets. And in response to a set of new questions, along with some old faves, nearly 100 of you again bared the kind of revelations you normally share only with lovers, closest friends, therapists and exhibitionist websites. What we usually forget is what we forgot. To that end, your suggestions for the Live and Lust Poll 2013 are always welcome at [email protected] (Congratulations to Billyonair and ex-oh. They ae the winners of the drawing for the gift certificates to Lover's Lane and Noir Leather).

Meanwhile, freelance writer Nicole Rupersburg shares her experience as a Dirty Show nude model, Lee Gardner reviews Nicholson Baker’s House of Holes, and former Detroiter Molly Mounds surveys the, er, ins and outs of scary sex toys.
