Although it unfortunately conflicts in both timing and subject matter with the Planned Parenthood bad-dating themed storytelling event Sarah and I are doing tonight, I'm nonetheless intrigued by The Sex Diaries Project, presented at Powell's tonight by New York magazine's Arianne Cohen. Spawned from that magazine's Sex Diaries column, Cohen presents and analyzes the sex diaries of 40 writers from varied backgrounds, and explores the themes that emerge. (She was on Think Out Loud this morning, if you want a preview.)

She's reading at Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside, at 7:30 pm tonight.
