I’m Beastly. Some people call me Alexander Cheves, but those people are strange.
I am a writer, editor, and copywriter in New York City. My work has appeared in Out, VICE, Them, Plus, TheBody, Hornet Stories, and many others. I write a sex column in The Advocate and create copy and content for awesome brands. Check out my work!
I’m from a farm in Georgia. It’s the most beautiful place on earth. I was conceived, seemingly by magic, in the muddy roots of an oak tree. You can imagine the fear on my mother’s face when she heard a guttural cooing sound while walking through the woods after a spring rain. She found the creature, cleaned and declawed it, and made it hers.
None of that is true, but I am adopted. Like Christ, I came into the world unencumbered by lineage and with nothing but big ideas. I later lived in Zambia, Africa, and have skirted through many interesting places before landing in the Big Apple.
I’m passionate about queer nightlife, history, erotic media, and sexual health. I work to provide accurate, sex-positive answers to questions you might be embarassed to ask elsehwere. My answers come from my own experience and, when necessary, professional guidance from doctors, therapists, and other health workers. I regularly update posts with more accurate information as it becomes available.
