Interested in our post about her Purim celebration this weekend, Sex and the 405 did an interview with Dr. Susan Block about how she arrived at her interpretation of the Book of Esther. Here's a peek:
Running a little late on making plans? Hey, we know how it is. It's easy to forget those holidays which have no real significance to us. We're guessing that despite the Catholic connotations of Saint Patrick's Day, mass is really the last thing on your mind, so here's another suggestion: Lust Affair at the Stone Rose.
Of all the things in the world to steal, why would you go for used sex toys? This is the sort of thing you might expect of a rejected lover, or a crazed stalker, but Mitchell Tice was apparently neither of these. No, the 40-year-old was an employee of the restaurant owned by the couple from whom he stole the goods.
Tice, the breakfast cook, took the items along with two laptops and a wig from their storage locker in January. The Florida police were tipped off when his girlfriend told detectives that he had stashed a bag of dildos under the bed and flat-out admitted he had stolen these from his employers.

In Jewish tradition, Purim commemorates a time when the Jewish in Persia were saved from extermination. This story is told in the Book of Esther. Over in downtown Los Angeles, however, Dr. Susan Block has a different take on the Biblical tale: salvation via Esther's "weapons of mass seduction."
To celebrate the holiday, the Sunday school teacher-turned-sexologist is hosting an erotic rendition of the story of Esther featuring porn stars, actors, artists, martial artists, belly dancers, and comedians:
Besides massive quantities of alcohol, the Story of Esther features sex, seduction, masquerade, exhibitionism, erotic teasing, sexual harassment, debauchery, feasting, dominance and submission, wild parties, political intrigue, gambling, the mysteries of the harem and the power of one hot woman's Weapons of Mass Seduction to stop an impending genocide. These elements make it a splendid holiday for the Block Institute. Traditional Jews beware: this is not your Bubbe's Purim.

It's not the sort of thing that first comes to mind when someone mentions a soiree. In fact, it's the furthest thing from the rather demure notion. The Girls Next Door Show is composed of top-notch 27 pole dancers, many of whom have been featured in movies, shows, and music videos.
It's an all-star cast of women from all industries who also like to let loose around a pole. And their April show -- or soiree -- starts at $20. What's not to love?
The internets run on bacon. This we know. What we also know is that the obsession has engendered a variety of products, from bacon-flavored lip balm to bacon-flavored vodka. In view of this and the apparent fascination with mixing food with sex, we weren't surprised to encounter the following item: bacon-flavored lubricant.
