Live Nude Elf: The Sexperiments of Reverend Jen
Live Nude Elf: The Sexperiments of Reverend Jen chronicles Reverend Jen Miller’s two-year series of adventures in love and sex in New York City The Reverend is a sort of elvish-speaking, Lower East Side version of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. The “sexperiments” range from harrowing (working as a live nude girl at Wiggles) to embarrassing (attending fellatio school) to transcendent (reaching a mystical state through tantric sex). Along the way there is transvestitism, female ejaculation, opium smoking, and heartbreak.
In the Rev’s “art star” world, where a twenty-one-year-old bisexual boy named Orion has sex with a jar of Mayonnaise, the more “mundane” acts of courtship, romance, and sex—kissing only, buying dinner for a lover, or just making eye contact in the sack—become themselves rare and subversive.
After a year, Jen confesses to having “grown a little tired of having sex.” The experimentation, the many “lab partners,” the late nights and cans of Budweiser, “meant romance was hard to come by.” After a decade of New York City flings, affairs, and a few failed relationships, Jen unexpectedly falls in love, and finally must decide between him and her art: can she continue a sex column and have a functional monogamous relationship? Or does the life implicit of a sex columnist preclude her from monogamous romantic love?
