I am that fellow. Lucas is my name, and I am a…no, THE…self-appointed Professional Intellectual Homosexual™. (I’m also a Leo. That may have been obvious.)
What does that mean? Well…I wear many hats.
As a writer, I’ve been keeping this blog (formerly titled “Top to Bottom”) for the last six years. I mostly write about sex. Sometimes pop culture. Sometimes gay culture. But mostly sex. My sex toy reviews are some of my most popular content. That’s probably what brought you here in the first place.

My primary passion is performing. I originally spawned this blog to build a following for my first one-man show “VGL 5’4″ Top”. It didn’t become a thing right away, but the blog did. In the last two years, though, I’ve toured with said show across the continent, making stops in San Francisco, Toronto, Orlando, Champaign, IL, and Grand Rapids, MI. I am now getting ready to tour with my third solo show, “Cootie Catcher” in 2015. (Don’t worry, your math is fine. The second show, “Fame Whore”, was a one-off. But there may be a comeback in the near future.)
Then, somewhere in the midst of this madness, I became a certified sex educator. I just thought it would be fun to sell sex toys for work, but then I started blogging about them. And then people starting sending me more sex toys to blog about. And then I started teaching workshops. And then people starting asking me to travel to other places to teach workshops (Dark Odyssey, Catalyst Con). And I said ‘sure’. And that’s where my life is now. If you want me to travel to a place to teach a workshop, you can contact me here, and I’ll probably say ‘sure’.
In the meantime, I am here for your blog-viewing pleasures. Read my things. Comment on my things. Ask me things. Buy me things (SUPPORT THE ARTS). Buy things from me (SUPPORT THE ARTS). Let’s just have a good time, shall we?
