Village Voice Calls It Off with Little Known Sex Blog

Did you know the Village Voice had a sex blog called NakedCity New York?

Well, it did. Though not any more, apparently. The New York Observer reports that Village Voice Media gave sex blogger Jamie Peck news that the blog, which she edited for eight months, was finished. Peck tweeted on Wednesday:

Wow, just found out NakedCity is dead. If anyone’s been thinking of trying to hire me to write/edit for them, now would be a good time.

The blog was in something of a test-run, which might explain the lack of publicity. Still, Peck posted 519 posts during this time, and garnered “sparse but respectable” traffic. Too bad it didn’t work it.
