FAQ
BY CHIP “FREQUENTLY ASKED” ZDARSKY
Because this event is being held in a “sexual club” aka a “sex club” (aka a “fuckstablishment”) there may be a few questions potential attendees have. I am here to answer them.
1. So, this is a sex club?Correct.
2. Does that mean I have to have sex?No.
3. Are you trying to trick me?No! This is a private event on a night that the club isn’t normally open on. It will be filled with authors and editors and comics folk who, while HIGHLY SEXUAL BEINGS I’M SURE, probably will not start poking each other’s bums with rolled-up comics. Also, even if it was a standard sex club night, no one has to have sex. Ever. Always remember that (NBC’s ‘The More You Know’ star flashes across the screen).
4. I still don’t believe you.My parents will be there!
5. Well I heard they’re perverts.Fair enough.
6. OK, but still, it’s a sex club. What if sex happens?The club space that we have rented is two floors. On the lower floor is a standard club with a bar and seats and presentations and, yes, a hot tub. The upper floor is the traditional sex floor, like everyone has in their house. That would be where people would have sex if so inclined. So, if a Doug Wright Award Winner™ wishes to enter a new realm of passion with a Shuster Award Winner™, that’s where it would happen. If that were to occur then just be respectful of their comic consummation and don’t join in unless invited to, OK, Harvey Award Nominee™?
7. Fine, fine, I get it. You’re having an ultimately sexless sexy sex event. Very edgy and ironic, Chip.Thank you. We stole the idea from TIFF™.
8. But some serious questions here: will the space be trans inclusive/positive?What? Of course! I’m hurt you’d have to ask that about an event I’m hosting, frankly.
9. Sorry. Also, is the space wheelchair/mobility device accessible?Sadly, no. There are 20+ stairs leading up to the event space.
10. Wow, what a bummer way to end this FAQ.Well, then ask me another question!
11. Do you love me?No.
