My nickname among friends and lovers is Beastly. My actual name is Alexander Cheves.
I’m a freelance writer covering sex, relationships, and queer culture for awesome magazines. My work has appeared in Out Magazine, VICE, Them, Plus, The Body, Hornet Stories, Into, and many other publications. In 2016, I launched the sex column “Sexy Beast” in The Advocate, the longest-running LGBTQ magazine in the United States. In August of 2020, I signed a two-book deal with Unbound Edition Press. My first, a collection of essays, is scheduled for release in the fall of 2021.
I’m also a copywriter and have written content for many brands including Nasty Pig, Fort Troff, LELO, Breedwell, and BMW. If you’d like to see some of my work, please visit my website.
And I’m an escort. There are many different kinds of escorts, and what I offer is a bit different from what you might expect. I’m not much of a porn star, and I’m not really into one-night stands. I’m an elite companion, and my work is more focused on connection, intimacy, and healing than rigorous sex. I’ve been in this business for a decade and approach it very professionally.
I’m 5’9″, brown and brown, half-Deaf, and my pronouns are he/him/his. I call myself “sexually fluid,” “pansexual,” or simply “queer” depending on the day. In most cases, I will avoid labeling myself altogether. I’m attracted to people I find sexy and stimulating, regardless of gender.
The purpose of this blog is to answer sex questions, share my own personal stories, and be a safe space for discussions on sex, including and especially topics that might elsewhere be considered “taboo.” I believe in a progressive, harm-reduction approach — nothing is gained by shaming each other’s kinks, desires, and fantasies.
My other passions revolve around tattoos, gyms, books, art, philosophy, history, sociology, biology, film, theater, electronic music (hardstyle, aggrotech, and anything dark and downbeat), queer history, nightlife, literary criticism, and HIV/AIDS activism.
