Let’s talk about sex. No really, let’s. You’ve grown tired of the same noontime routine, so today you’ll head to the Public Library for a rather lecherous lecture. As you work through that Chipotle taco salad, former High Times publisher and Hustler correspondent (don’t ask what his beat was) Mike Edison will give an address on the past 60 years of girlie magazines. With Lilo soon making her Playboy debut, you’ve been wishing you were better versed in the history of full-frontal spreads. You’ll sit with rapt attention as Mr. Edison unravels that salacious pop-culture phenomenon, the centerfold. Best of all? The lecture is heavily advertised as being “illustrated.” Nothing like free porn on a Tuesday afternoon courtesy of the New York Public Library!
Mike Edison presents Sixty Years of Sex on the Newsstand, Steven A. Schwarzman Building, Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street, 1:15-3 p.m. First come, first served (ahem!).
