When I used to sneak into my father’s room to go through his stash of Playboy Magazines, it was strictly to read the fascinating articles laid out chicly between the covers of the glossy mag. Pages upon pages of information relating to art, music, entertainment, industry and design kept me busy for hours…until Mama D’arde caught me and sent back to my villa to “think about my actions”. She just didn’t understand.
Now, in a stroke of genius born from the mind of Playboy’s Chief Content Officer, Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy has made every single issue of the magazine ever published available on iPlayboy. That’s over 160,000 pages of academia and erotica on the web and optimized for use on your iPad. (If you don’t have an iPad, you can still browse the photos only but not the articles.)
It’s no secret that I love ADIDAS, and although the name actually is an abbreviation for its creator Adi Dasler, it’s urban fiction that it stands for All Day I Dream About Sex. Well, coming this Monday, you don’t have to dream about it because we’re bringing it to you live, on the third floor of The Standard, New York!
WAIT WAIT WAIT! We’re not bringing you sex live! We’re presenting the second installment of our Standard Talks series in conjunction with Sunny Bates, Cool Hunting and Russian Standard. This time around the topic of discussion will focus on sexuality, gender identity and all those taboo topics you were never able to discuss with Mommy Dearest.
Sunny has curated a stellar panel consisting of former Kinsey Institute head, Dr. June Reinisch, Transgender Filmmaker, Kimberley Reed (she used to be a quarterback!) and Make Love Not Porn’s Cindy Gallop. There’s one more FABULOUS element of surprise. Well, it’s not a surprise, because I’m about to tell you. Alterna-Drag Superstar Jomama Jones née Daniel Alexander will be doing a little show of sorts…..but you have to come to see it.
The Exploration takes place this Monday June 13th from 6:30pm - 8:30pm in the High Line Room on the third floor of The Standard, New York. RSVP is essential or you won’t be let in. Just sayin’….
Sharing of ideas and communication has been at the core of human existence since the beginning of time. Without this exchange, the progression of humanity would never have come this far. Bridges would not have been built. Automobiles would not have existed. The internet would be nothing but a dream in one man’s mind.
Always at the heart of the creative communities, The Standard Hotels, in partnership with Cool Hunting, have created Standard Talks, a monthly forum where leaders of industry gather to discuss current topics spanning the fields of Art, Fashion, Design, Culture, Sex, Entertainment, Science, Architecture and more.
The talks will be curated by Sunny Bates, a member of the Brain Trust of TED, and a slew of very special guests who will explore, monthly, various topics including Game Theory, Sleep & Dreams, Lies & Secrets, the Anatomy of Desire and the Body as a Mobile Landscape.
As has proven the case for centuries, this exchange of information will only better the future, and of course, it’s happening at a Standard near you.
