I cannot overstate the quality of Nerve. Launched in 1997 as a web-only sex magazine aimed at both men and women who appreciate "Literate Smut," Nerve is still going strong. There is a huge amount of variety in the content: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, book reviews, recaps of sex scenes in the media, humorous pieces, musings on morality, dating advice, lists of links, illustrations... Nerve has everything you never knew you wanted. The first article I read was "Tokyo Stripshow Tryout" by Phil Goldman, originally published in 2009. It was easy to tell why Nerve's editors had brought this piece back to the front page all of these years later. Phil describes his experience of having moved to Tokyo as an English teacher, running out of money, and seeing an ad in the English language newspaper looking for foreign male strippers. As an overweight, hairy, balding white guy, he knows he doesn't have a shot at the job, but he decides to try out anyway. This article had me laughing out loud. Other pieces almost made me cry. I will most definitely be returning to this website on my own time. In its own words, this site "surpasses the busy fluff [and] strikes a nerve." -LMM
