triple j Magazine’s Sex issue meant some fun/weird features to write. Here’s one where I, er, took on the challenge of writing about places to go if you’re in search of… let’s say ‘the world’s sexiest destinations’ for decorum’s sake. Y’know.

It ran in the April/May issue of triple j magazine. And it’s pretty damn good.
