CrashPad Advice Column Syndicated by East Bay Express

SAN FRANCISCO —, the 2014 XBIZ Award-winner for Specialty Site of the Year, on Wednesday announced the syndication of its porn star advice column "Slumber Party with Lyric Seal" with the East Bay Express, an online and weekly Bay Area publication.

"Slumber Party with Lyric Seal" is a bi-weekly advice column by CrashPad porn performer, artist and Oakland resident, Lyric Seal. The syndication finds its home in Culture Spy: Arts Coverage for the Bay Area and Beyond, within the East Bay Express.

Lyric Seal's advice is "honest, unique, and representative of the Bay Area's diverse cultural communities," according to Seal's perspective as a writer spans queer and trans people of color, disability justice, sex workers, and artists. The column marks a milestone for the writer, who has recently signed a 2016 book deal through alt sex publisher ThreeL Media.

Slumber Party kicks off with the question, "How Do I Rebuild My Sexuality as a Disabled Transgender Person?" At its release, it appeared on the site as one of the top three shared and viewed posts.
