Polly Superstar in Bonoboville
It’s Polly Superstar’s virgin voyage into the new Womb Room of Bonoboville, but it feels like a reunion. This is partly because we’ve led somewhat parallel lives over the past decade or so in our respective realms, mixing separate but similar sex-cultural cocktails: one part polyamorous exploration, two parts monogamish love, three parts artistic bonoboësque vision and 12 parts wild and crazy fun.
It’s also because Polly’s passionate new memoir Polly: Sex Culture Revolutionary is a masterwork of self-disclosure—revealing the most intimate details of her heart, soul and sex life while providing no-nonsense guidance for anyone who wants to throw a kinky sex party. Having ingested my Polly primer—twice!—I open the show feeling like I know this perfect stranger better than some of my best friends. Then I get to know and like her even better.
The first half of the broadcast focuses on Polly’s fabulous book, her colorful life and the “Kinky Salons” she started in San Francisco and which have since spread to Europe New York, Portland and now our own City of Kinky Angels. Then we open things up to our in-studio audience who loves Polly, partly because most of them are poly, and partly because Polly is just so loveable. Several jump into the broadcast bed with us—including beautiful-entrepreneurial Onyx Muse, slinky-sweet Shadow Cumbie, BDSM Master D, chic sheik chauffeur Tammie Parrott, always-up-for-adventure Dark Phoenix and orally inclined Chelsea Demoiselle—for a rollicking (with emphasis on licking) Bonoboville Communion, wiggling into striptease and just tease in general, climaxing with a wild Sybian ride during a blowjob flanked by giggling half-naked voyeurs. Yes, indeed, we got your sex culture revolution right here.
Weapons of Mass Discussion: Sex Culture; Revolution; Community; Polly’s errant youth as the bright and restless child of a sex therapist mom & hot-air balloon-flying dad; sex parties vs. Kinky Salons; police raids & police brutality; The Bonobo Way in action; wonderful perverts; the taboo temptations of incest (Caller Taylor asks us what we think of “kissing cousins”); Bill Cosby’s Sleep Fetish; Consensuality; England’s odd ban on homemade kinky porn; Capt’n Max on getting busted for sex publishing in the 70s and how the real revolution comes when you look in the mirror and decide to make a change.
Shameless Name-Dropping: Christopher Ryan Ph.D. (we credit his landmark book Sex at Dawn for opening our eyes to how human civilization more or less f*cked up human sexuality); Margaret Cho the Mother Teresa of Comedy; Suicide Club Bridge-Climber, Cacophony Society, Burning Man & Snake Eve’s Pooping Victim John Law; Carol Queen & “The Fine Art of Fisting”; Ashley Manta, Annie Sprinkle, Tuppy Owens & Nina Hartley—now writing her own memoir!
Commedia Erotica: Polly’s poly-colored mini-skirt, British accent (especially when she enunciates the word “fetish”), sex-affirming ideas and luscious cleavage; Onyx’ gorgeous petite body in nothing but skimpy, strappy panties and a confident, dominant attitude (plus she buys a signed copy of Polly and The Bonobo Way!); Shadow’s black lacy lingerie, adorable A-cups and sweet-as-a-colt exhibitionism; Tammie’s virgin boobage reveal; Snake Eve slithering around naked flesh and high heels, girls going bananas with actual bananas, the “Kinky Salon Pledge of Allegiance” (right hand on boob, left hand on neighbor’s butt cheek), “Bonoboville Communion” with dangerously delicious Dirty Tequila & extra salt, Dark Phoenix’s swashbuckling Sybian ride with Chelsea’s able oral assistance.
Now that our parallel lives have intersected, I think we’ll see more of Polly in LA and on the show. In the meantime, this international sex cultural dynamo is off to host Kinky Salons and Polly-signings in London, Copenhagen and Berlin. So, quick, get her book, check out a Kinky Salon, release your inner bonobo and join the sex culture revolution!
