This is fun: Susie Bright interviews Chelsea Girl and publishes part of the transcript on 10 Zen Monkeys. (Alas, the complete interview has apparently not been transcribed, and is available only in that brutally slow and notoriously linear 20th century format, audio.)
SB: I would be remiss if I didn’t ask you to talk about your oral sex discussion.
CG: The “deep throat” post.
SB: I learned so much from that. There are all these people writing “deep throat this” and “deep throat that.” And there’s even porn how-to films. But it never gets beyond the sort of Linda Lovelace fanfare of deep throat. Until you, no one talked about how you really get things…
SB: How the nature of your saliva changes once you get in the right… You call it the viscous stuff.
CG: Yeah, the viscous, porn star-y spit.
SB: How did you learn how to give spectacular deep throat sex? Who taught you?
CG: My pediatrician.
SB: Oh, come on! No, stop!
CG: I had strep throat a lot as a kid. And I hated tongue depressors. And every winter I would have my throat swabbed over and over again. And so I learned how to control my gag reflex so that I didn’t have to have a tongue depressor in my mouth when they swabbed my throat. That’s essentially the same technique I use when I deep throat. I had no idea it would come in handy. But seriously, the first time I gave head, it just went down.
SB: Well, did you realize that the nature of one’s saliva and mucus would change and that you’d get more lubrication?
CG: Oh, that came from Jenna Jameson — I was reading Jenna Jameson’s book, which was ghostwritten by Neil Strauss, of course. Anyway, Jenna sort of articulated how, once you start, your gag reflex is your friend. And once you start to have the gagging happen, that’s when you get that nice thick viscous spit.
