It's about that time, cats and kittens. Time to start fantasizing -- Halloween is just around the corner. And though everyone and their mother is going to be Stephen Colbert's Muslim vampire  this year, many will seize the autumnal juncture as an opportunity to whore it up and out – in a good way!
After all, who doesn't love the sexy nurses, kitties, police officers, and Snookies that stalk the city bars each year on the 31st? Look, the point is that on this day of days society indulges those that follow their dreams. May as well make it a wet dream, no? Sexy Muslim vampire it is! Oh, and here are some sexy events that'll wet your whistle this week, with an emphasis on finding that alluring inner equilibrium.
Two events this week to get you hooked into what's happening in Dixie De La Tour's recurring sexcapade storytelling series: one, a best-of edition featuring writers and comedians from around town (Wed/6) and two, a back alley Lit Crawl  edition of Bawdy that'll have Clarion Alley echoing with the retelling of disastrous dates and tales of unconventional canoodling.

And of course, a chance to write some hot, dirty smut.
