New Poll: Dramatic Action

Monday, October 31st, 2011

We quite enjoyed Courtney Trouble’s new DVD, Live Sex Show, which was shot at a live Masturbate-a-Thon in San Francisco.

More than just masturbating, these couples (including two straight couples, just so you know; all the rest are lesbian couples) have fabulous, wild sex right on stage before an audience of 200 people!

Thinking about that, this month we ask: Would you ever masturbate or have sex on a stage for an audience?

Vote now! The poll is on Fatale’s home page. We’ll give you the results next month.

As for last month’s poll about teachers and students…it seems there were a lot of crushes happening! View the October 2011 poll results.

Until next time, we wish you deliciously hot sex,

Christi and Nan




Takin’ It To the Streets

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

We were in Minneapolis a couple weeks ago, when the Minneapolis SlutWalk took place, on October 1st, 2011.

The Minneapolis SlutWalk video, courtesy of Mill City Times, shows a typical cross-section of relatively young, relatively white Minneapolis, a city that with its sister city of St. Paul has a population of approximately three-quarters of a million people. That’s where Nan went to college, too, at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.

SlutWalk Minneapolis was bound to be tamer than SlutWalk London, which was held in June, or SlutWalk New York, which was also held on October 1, 2011.

More men, it seemed, were in attendance at the Minneapolis protest, than at other protests. One was shirtless. The state was breaking autumn heat wave records, and it has turned out to be the hottest stretch in 132 years. In the 80s every day, ugh.

SlutWalks originated last spring 2011 in Toronto, when, according to a CBC report, a Toronto police constable in January told a York University personal security class that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.”

The antiviolence SlutWalk protests are sex-positive, unlike the mostly anti-porn Take Back the Night marches of the 1970s and 1980s, before women reclaimed their right to be sexual beings.

In response, and an historic turning point, On Our Backs was born, the brainchild of Deborah Sundahl, Nan Kinney, Myrna Elena and Susie Bright.

Women and lesbians began celebrating sex and sexuality in a way they hadn’t before. Women’s desires were shown in all their glory in On Our Backs magazine and those first Fatale videos.

For a perfect example of a now-classic lesbian video, don’t miss Fatale Media’s Clips. Nan and Deb star, and there is one scene in there from Deborah that is still our favorite.

Yours in good love and sex,

Nan & Christi


In Memoriam: Steve Jobs

Friday, October 14th, 2011

We were saddened when Steve Jobs died. We knew that Deborah Sundahl was an early proponent of Apple, Steve Jobs and all subsequent products.

On Our Backs lesbian magazine

Susie Bright wrote a very funny tribute to those early days at On Our Backs, when Deborah would ponder dilemmas with “What would Steve Jobs do?”

“Steve Jobs and the Lesbian Erotic Revolution” is a worthwhile read. Get ready for some laughs. We urge you to subscribe to Susie’s blog too.

Celebrate! National Coming Out Day

Keith Haring's Logo for National Coming Out day

It’s National Coming Out Day, and we’re celebrating all those brave individuals who took a stand and still take a stand to come out. And while it’s easier today in some parts of the world to come out, it’s still a dangerous proposition in many parts of the world, including some right in the U.S.

We welcome all those who have the courage to come out!

Susie Bright’s Tribute

Imagine our surprise to learn that Honey Lee Cottrell was being evicted from the apartment she’s had since the early days of On Our Backs.

On Our Backs was the seminal lesbian porn magazine first published by Deborah Sundahl and Myrna Elena. Nan Kinney became publisher not long after that first issue came out, and Susie Bright became editor.

Susie and Honey Lee shared that apartment back in the early days of OOB. Many of the magazine’s sexy shoots took place in it or nearby.

Susie’s piece is an amazing chronicle of the OOB shoots and that apartment on Bessie Street in San Francisco.

There are fabulous pictures in this piece. One in particular, The Voyeur shoot at the York Theater, with Susie, Honey Lee and Nan, brought a big smile to our faces. Nan’s hair!

Annals of Bessie Street: From Revolution to Eviction
