"Sex Scenes" made an appearance at Abiola Abram's fabulous Kiss & Tell erotica series the other night, upstairs at the legendary downtown burlesque venue Madame X.
Jake Thomas -- who has been appearing in "Sex Scenes" for so long that he might well qualify as "Mr. Sex Scenes" by this point -- played the immortal pornographer-wannabe Nathan Moffitt; the talented and inventive Jillaine Gill gave her lovely all to the role of incarcerated high-school teacher Deborah Kibble. The audience laughed ... The temperature in the room rose a few degrees ... In other words, Jake and Jillaine put the story ("Detention") over just the way it deserves to be.
Abiola -- who made her own appearance in a "Sex Scenes" evening a few years ago -- is a force of nature. A hilarious, glamorous and lovable dynamo onstage, she's also a writer, an exceptional video host, and with Kiss & Tell she's now sponsoring and emceeing one of downtown's funnest -- and most diverse -- evenings. Drop by a Kiss & Tell evening and you'll be able to savor a very wide range of body types, sexual preferences, skin colors and performance styles. It's guaranteed to be a fun time, as well as a majorly dis-inhibiting experience.
Here's the lineup from the evening when we made our appearance:
That's Abiola with the pink ruffle. Look closely and you'll also spot a couple of other "Sex Scenes" veterans: Mo Beasley (suave and kneeling) and Shannon Lower (red hair, low-cut black shirt, great big smile), who were there to contribute a hot and beautiful poetry-and-movement duet.
You can't say that "Sex Scenes" hasn't spun off a lot of creative partnerships!
