On Saturday night, the downtown set gathered in a photo studio in Chelsea to celebrate the introduction of a new “literary and erotic magazine” called Adult. Stepping off of the quiet street and into the large, vaulted space — barely decorated but stocked with an abundance of beer and bubbly, a few bowls filled with nostalgic Halloween candy like Dubble Bubble and standard issue lollipops, a couple of penis-shaped piñatas hanging next to a stage (where Kelela and Lauren Devine performed later in the night), and old-school pornography, projected onto a large white wall for the party’s duration — was like discovering a clandestine and slightly naughty affair, which is the same experience the founding editor Sarah Nicole Prickett wants you to have when opening her inaugural issue. “I wanted Adult to feel like a secret,” she said about the quarterly magazine, which will hit select newsstands, including Marc Jacobs’s bookstore, BookMarc, and the Museum of Modern Art, in mid-November. Despite the “Not for sale to minors” disclaimer on its cover, Prickett isn’t shy about hoping the young and curious find it, even if they have to steal it. “I want to go on the record as being very pro-minors,” she said. “I love teen girls. I wish I could have been one — I was awful at it. The best I can hope for is the feeling I had as a teen, which is that I couldn’t wait to get older. I want people to feel like that until they’re 70.”

$20; artbook.com, select newsstands and indie bookstores mid-November.

Two Canadian Gals, One Erotic Literary Magazine

By Richard Horgan on October 29, 2013 1:45 PM

Founding editor Sarah Nicole Prickett, who bills herself as a “reactionary socialite who writes a lot,” moved to New York from Canada in 2012. Her partner in Adult crime and fellow Canuck, creative director Berkeley Poole, is by-day a designer forVisionaire and V magazine.

The pair recently held an official launch party for the first issue of Adult, due at select newsstands in mid-November, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine‘s Alainna Lexie Beddiewas there. Thinking of Adult as “magazine” is perhaps a bit of an insult; it’s put together like an art book, with a retail price tag to match ($20):

Despite the “Not for sale to minors” disclaimer on its cover, Prickett isn’t shy about hoping the young and curious find it, even if they have to steal it. “I want to go on the record as being very pro-minors,” she said. “I love teen girls.”

“I wish I could have been one — I was awful at it. The best I can hope for is the feeling I had as a teen, which is that I couldn’t wait to get older. I want people to feel like that until they’re 70.”

Fall issue contents include an oyster omelet recipe, a profile of David Cronenberg and a photo spread of two female models frolicking towards nudity in LA. There’s also a long read by Joe Coscarelli about the Sunshine State.
