About the Authors:
Adam Cuclich is the guy with the libido that would put you into a support group, only he keeps it in check. He fits all eight sexualities: Straight, Gay, Bi, Curious, Asexual, Over-sexual, Hurricane and Politician. He mounts up, savors the climb, peaks and takes his time coming back down, in the great outdoors and in the bedroom. Born and raised in Littleton, Colo., but really "grew up" in the Florida Keys, and now feeling truly at home in the West Coast/L.A. lifestyle.

Educated and emphatic with extensive experience in the journalism and adult entertainment industries, Davenporte has seen it all - and done some of it. Not the relationship type, she does everything (and everyone) she can to keep her skills and outlook fresh.
Brennan Foley was a journalist, but journalism is a dead, so he now occupies himself primarily with drugs, booze and women. He loves Los Angeles, his mother, whiskey and Green Bay Packers football, even if they don't always love him. His heroes are Hunter S. Thompson, Hank Williams Jr., John Jameson, Max McGee and Donald Draper.
Foley writes this column as a way to keep himself out of trouble. It rarely works.
Freddy and Eddy, aka Ian and Alicia Denchasy, are an L.A. couple, together since 1988, who review adult products from the perspective of their long-term, monogamous relationship/marriage. They founded Freddy and Eddy, a couples-oriented adult website, in 2001 as a vehicle to explore sexual boundaries and learn new ways to enhance their intimacy. Since then, their website has grown to occupy the preeminent position in sexuality information geared toward couples. They've written a best-selling book on oral sex, and have appeared frequently in virtually every type of media as authorities on maintaining a strong sexual presence with a loving partner. http://www.freddyandeddy.com

Ross Joey Paleodo is an L.A. writer, occasional comedian and all-around Italian stallion. OK...maybe an Italian mini pony. But Italian nonetheless - with no spray tan. His first sexual experience came at a very young age (he won't share that story until the third date) but his second came at age 26, and involved the same number of orgasms.
Ross subsequently spent the next three years catching up on the rest of society through sexual binging, an exhaustive process that, at times, proved enlightening. To date, it's quite possible that Ross has had more sex than you, but hey -- who keeps track of that stuff anyway? Ross's views on sex have evolved from three important influences: his overwhelming immersion and repetition of the act, his intensively analytical mental processes, and his close relationship with his mother.
DISCLAIMER: Ross has the tendency to exaggerate to sound studly.
Tatiana (do not call her Tatty) is a performer, writer, entertainer and above all else, a sexy creative force. She has traveled the world, partied with Hollywood royalty, and kissed plenty who pretended to be, but has also spent plenty of nights with ice cream and P.J.'s - and by P.J.'s, she means a vibrator. She has lived in Italy, Russia, and NYC, but prefers the six-packed men of Los Angeles. She speaks three languages...four if you include the language of love, in which she is also fluent. Naturally.
In an ongoing internal battle between desiring the freedom of single life and the comfort and support of a relationship, she has been tied up and tied down several times. The battle rages on.
Friends for three years, but foes for 12, Tatiana and Ross found they have more chemistry on the debate floor than on the cold cement they used to fuck on. (Long story, ask them later. They're on deadline.)
Tatiana likes to talk about sex, but she actually does it with TJ. They're dating and do it a lot, and sometimes they write about it.
