Wanna get between the sheets and poke into snazzy, sassy
whatchims for hilarity about American arts (forget a serious
study) and some of the bedtime players?

A socio-sexual bio, covering dance, music, photography, of
always horny George Platt Lynes, Lincoln Kirstein, Paul
Cadmus and how they interacted w Glenway Westcott, Monroe
Wheeler, Katherine Anne Porter, Virgil Thomson, heiress
Barbara Harrison, thespian Ruth Ford and her brud's lover,
Pavel Tchelitchev, fashion model Laurie Douglas, Isherwood
& childe Bachardy -- they're all doing their performance
art, plus others you've only wondered about.

Author Leddick, who has posted sex tips on YT, strokes
several decades of artistic evolution and sexual dithers
w unzipped humor and (unintentional) campy asides.
