[Edits 5:45 p.m.] In Print: It’s mildly alarming that Sex from Madonna was released almost 20 years ago. I had only been living in Hollywood a few months when the photobook was released in October 1992. I made my way to the B. Dalton’s near the corner of Hollywood and Highland to maybe pick up a copy, but it was too rich for my blood. And the only two copies they had left were on reserve. Anyway, we’ve been talking about Joey Stefano popping up in the zeitgeist lately; he was one of the celebrity cameos in Sex, hand-picked by Madonna for a slap-and-tickle photo shoot at the Gaiety in New York. Here are some very nice scans of his work; he appears in the background two or three more times. (Not only is Mr. Stefano gone now, of course, but so is that B. Dalton’s; it’s now a Starbucks. I probably shouldn’t be contemplating the rush of time this early on a Monday). That’s actor Udo Kier in the photo at left. See the links below for our recent Stefano stories. I’ve got an interview with the filmmaker working on a doc about him coming up.

    Seems like Udo Kier is still in demand. He has a new film just out ‘House of Boys’ also starring Stephen Fry.
