Written and performed by Miranda Huba, CANDY TASTES NICE follows the story of a young girl determined to auction off her virginity. What starts off as a simple bid to re-pay student loans turns into a mass media frenzy, and soon countries are bidding against each other in order to obtain the girl's elusive innocence.
Directed by Shannon Sindelar, CANDY TASTES NICE is an investigation of our society's ease with women's exploitation in our pop-culture world and our acceptance of a skewed view of sexuality as it is portrayed in the media. Produced by Lauren Rayner Productions.

"But how," it has been asked, "can boys star in Naked Girls Reading?" Because in June, Naked Girls Reading NYC bends genders to become Naked GUYS Reading, as Pinchbottom puts a new twist on the international hit nude literary salon. Top male stars in New York burlesque and alternative performance take the NGR stage for a special celebration of the works of Great Women Writers - scheduled to include Dorothy Parker, Penny Arcade, Anaïs Nin, Virginia Woolf, Mary Shelly, Sylvia Plath, and more.
"Rest assured, this will be exactly the same sultry literary experience audiences enjoy at NGR NYC each and every month," says co-producer Nasty Canasta, "but for one month only, the 'G' stands for 'Guys.'" Albert Cadabra, Mancandy, Tigger! and Machine Dazzle join host Jonny Porkpie in a salute to literary ladies at Naked Guys Reading Great Women Writers, a very special edition of Naked Girls Reading NYC at Madame X for one night only, Friday June 11 at 8pm.
