Virtual Lovers and Hybrid Positions in the London Journal’s Latest Spread |

Dutch photographers Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm depict the best of both sexes in today’s exclusive series taken from the third issue of Baron magazine. Founded by Jonathan Baron and Matthew Holroyd, the self-published title lies at the intersection of art and pornography, and for its latest edition, “The Future of Sex,” the journal gets under the skin of relationships in the digital age. Eighty-eight-year-old Polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman provides the unlikely reference point with a rumination on the allure of “virtual relationships,” while the list of guest editors includes the co-founder of the New York Club Kids movement, Michael Alig, and Night editor Henry Rubin (issue two saw Tyrone Lebon take the reins). Here, the magazine’s quick-witted “spoof” editor The Baron talks tapping into online desires, and logging off.

The Irriplacable ‘Quentin Crisp’

Denis Charles Pratt was born in Sutton, Surrey, the fourth child of solicitor Spencer Charles Pratt (1871–1931) and former governess Frances Marion Pratt (née Phillips) (1873–1960); he changed his name to Quentin Crisp in his third decade after leaving home and cultivating his outlandishly effeminate appearance to a standard that both shocked contemporary Londoners and provoked homophobic attacks. By his own account, Crisp was effeminate in behaviour from an early age and found himself the object of teasing at Kingswood Preparatory School in Epsom, from where he won a scholarship to Denstone College, Uttoxeter, in 1922.
