Always the Bridesmaid...

Well, I went up to the Night of the Senses Ball on Friday night to hopefully pick up an Erotic Award for Publication of the Year (for Erotic Comics 1 & 2),but sadly, yet not surprisingly—was pipped to the post by Susan Quilliam's updating of the bearded classic, The New Joy of Sex. However Susan did give the other nominees a lovely nod in her acceptance speech:




The night had some extremely interesting acts including both blind and dwarf striptease acts and Matt the very funny thalidomide compare/comedian. Everyone I met there was absolutely lovely from Dr Antony Lempert (winner of the Academic of the Year) and his wife, Anna, Professor Stephen Guest and his wife. Other award winners included Anna Arrowsmith, the LibDem candidate, for Politician of the Year and Act Art for Club of the Year.


Big thank you to founder Dr Tuppy Owens for being a lovely host and all the volunteers who obviously worked so very hard to put the event together.


The full list of winners is on the website and there's an article appear in tomorrow's Independent Arts' Section (Tuesday 4th May). In the meantime here's a few pics of what you missed at the fashion show element:

arrgh. Still, good to be nominated mate! I'd love to meet Anna Arrowsmith, especially "off mic". I bet she's got some great views.
