Lickety Split is in the November issue of Nightlife Magazine!
Lickety Split has 2 items in the current issue of Nightlife. We're included in the "stuff you should buy" sort-of section near the back and there's a wee interview with yours truly in the feature/theme of the issue "Freak Therapy". Thanks to Mic Shu and Clifford Brown for hooking this up!

For those who can't click or don't have access to the free monthly, here's the interview by Clifford Brown:
FREAK #4_Amber Goodwyn
/ Porn culture jammer
You’re definitely not publishing smut for profit – what’s your mission?_Lickety Split is all about the people doing it, and each other, for themselves! We’re making sex-positive, pansexual smut. There’s a quote from Susie Bright we always drop: “If you don’t like what you see out your window, the most subversive thing you can do is make your own vision. If criticizing sex is so important, then where are our role models? Who do you think is going to make erotic expression meaningful to you if not yourself?”
Ever been contacted by outraged readers?__Never.
What’s the freakiest thing you’ve ever done?_Hmmm. I brought a blow-up doll to my high school prom as my date. But I’ve never eaten spiders or bitten the heads off of chickens or anything like that.
Is it hard to be taken seriously with artsy porn?_No. But seriously artsy porn, now that’s hard to take.
Women are slowly taking over the porn world - thoughts?_Is that a promise? Truthfully, I don’t think Lickety Split fits in with the regular porn world. We’re not even on the radar for those folks, we’re making our own
culture on a different planet away from them and we’re coming from a place of multiplicity and inclusiveness. And slutty-ness.
