AboutI'm Laura Leu, a writer living in New York City. I enjoy telling strangers on the Internet my name, occupation and city of residence.
I've written for Women's Health, Maxim, Cosmo, Details, Health, Time Out New York, New York Post, McSweeney's and Salon, among others. In January 2010, my husband Adam and I launched Navigeaters, a blog that documents our quest to eat a meal from every nation in the world without leaving NYC. I also created Self-Petting Zoo, your one-stop shop for masturbating animal videos.
If you're an editor who wants to give me work, you can read some clips below or take a look at my resume. If you're a horny old German man, you can watch this video of me playing my accordion while my friend pole-dances.
