Part-time LIVE-IN EDITORIAL ASSISTANT wanted for internationally renowned media sexologist and institute director, featured on HBO, Nightline, Playboy, OWN and other media channels. We need a careful editorial word smith with a good working grasp of English grammar, punctuation and syntax who is also a fun writer. Comfort with using Twitter, Facebook and other social media is a plus.
You will be helping to edit and prepare a book for publication. So knowledge of Kindle and publishing is a big plus. The book is The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure, and it is already getting great pre-publication reviews as you can see on http://....com (in development). Time is of the essence! Publication party is set for November 8th.
Our work deals with all aspects of sexuality, so if you are religious, anti-sex, homophobic or otherwise sex-challenged, please don't bother to apply. Obviously, you need to be comfortable with sexual themes, but you don't have to be a "sexpert" by any means--though you'll probably become one if you work here!
If you take this live-in, part-time position, you'll be doing fun, hard work, writing, documenting and editing our work (including that soon-to-be-published book!) and tweeting during our amazing, audience-participation show every Saturday night, adding to your resume as well as your bucket list. You'll love it, but beware, our guests sometimes have sex for our cameras... And no, you don't have to! You'll also be answering phones and doing some basic office work.
This is a barter position. You give us 4 hours a day, six days a week, including Saturday nights...In return you'll get a great private room, all you can eat, free internet, maid service for the common areas, secure parking and a very cool bohemian atmosphere in our new West LA Institute with an erotic art gallery, studio, bar and there's a lot more (at least, there will be soon; we're renovating!) within an exciting, vibrant, socialist-style, capitalist-oriented community of artists, technologists and sexologists. You'll also meet some of the most interesting people in Los Angeles and from around the world.
If you get this position, you can also make money with us driving, webcamming or counseling our sex therapy clients by phone. The barter is for the editorial assistant/phone answering, as explained above. And no, we're sorry but we will NOT consider you if you don't want to do the live-in barter exchange, no matter how great you are.

Of course, at some point, you'll get a real job making hundreds of thousands in Hollywood, or your novel will become a best-seller. In the meantime, this might be fun and very rewarding for you.
If you're interested, send your resume, writing sample(s) and photo with a well-written email about why you think you'd be right for this position to [email protected]
If you have questions call 310-568-... and ask for David.
