Hi, it’s Karley! I hosted this new documentary for VICE about the history of Sunset Boulevard. Slightly random…. but interesting! This is part of a new series called “Streets by VICE” which looks at a city through the history of one iconic street. For this doc I got to meet and interview one of the most iconic sex workers ever, Norma Jean Almodovar, who left her job at the LAPD to become a prostitute, and is now a legendary sex…
As people who read this blog remember, the second season of Be Here Nowish (the web series I play a supporting role in and helped write) came out last month. The show is about two sexually progressive women who move to LA in search of a spiritual awakening. It’s super lol, and sweet, and queer, and if you’re into new age culture (or if you like to laugh at new age culture) then I suggest you watch it :) The…

This music video is so lol, I had to share it with you. It’s the new video for RAC’s single, “Back of the Car” (ft. Nate Henricks). Directed by Alex Karpovsky and Teddy Blanks, starring Saturday Night Live‘s Sasheer Zamata and me, Karley, as extremely desperate, pizza-loving lesbians :)
Want to add some light, consensual violence into your sex life? Look no further. This cute and informative video, by Lessa Millet and Kaye Blegvad, is the perfect intro guide to the world of BDSM. Also, it’s pretty safe for work, because it’s all animation :)
There’s an app for everything these days, so if you’re a picky dater, you’re in luck. I went on the Huffington Post LIVE yesterday and talked on a panel about the new boom in niche dating apps—from apps specifically for stoners, to apps designed to hide sexts with your side-bitch—and how they’re affecting sex and relationships. The video is about 20 minutes and you can see it above :)
