Sex and the 405 is what your newspaper would look like if it had a sex section.
Here you’ll find news about the latest research being conducted to figure out what drives desire, passion, and other sex habits; reviews of sex toys, porn and other sexy things; coverage of the latest sex-related news that have our mainstream media’s panties up in a bunch; human interest pieces about sex and desire; interviews with people who love sex, or hate sex, or work in sex, or work to enable you to have better sex; opinion pieces that relate to sex and society; a raunchier kind of celebrity gossip.
Why the name?
It’s a nod to Candace Bushnell’s 90s column “Sex and the City” for The New York Observer. This is Los Angeles, though, and you can’t say we have much of a city. We’re more like a country made up of small cities, all of which are connected by these crazy freeways and boulevards that are almost always filled with the cars of people trying to get from one city to another, all of them furious about the traffic like its something new and behaving like maniacs.
Of all the roads you could drive in this town, the most notorious has to be I-405, also known as The (yes, you must give it an article) Four-Oh-Five. This interstate (which is part of the larger San Diego Freeway) runs north-south across the Greater Los Angeles area from all the way down in Orange County to near San Fernando. It is the most congested freeway in the entire United States.
L.A. is a place of many different people, and every little city within it is very different, too. But there are three things most every single one of us we have in common: sex, the 405, and a general frustration in regard to both.
So, is this blog about Los Angeles?
Think about it like you would a newspaper. It covers things happening all around the world, but has a local section, too. Our more local sections are Diaries (for real life confessions of people living in Los Angeles) and Places (information about sexy places around town). But we would never turn away a good thing when we saw it, so if you live elsewhere, speak English and want to contribute, don’t hesitate to let us know.
