Sexy south. (Outtakes).

So you've got your HBO "Sex in the City" evening planned around Carrie and Miranda and Aidan and a few martini variations?

Well, click off the clicker and curl up with something else because a Little Rock writer Friday had a hunch party in West Hollywood, Calif., for a new book.

"Sex in the South: Unbuckling the Bible Belt" author Suzi Parker plows into the fertile but cautionary sexual mores of the South where plain brown wrappers hide more than girlie mags.

Published by independent publisher Justin Charles & Co. of Boston, the book is described on the company's Web site as an erotically guided adventure through venerable Dixie, where sweaty fingers unbuckle the Bible belt."

Oh my goodness, someone get me a cocktail. "Banana Republic" indeed.

The collection of stories about den mothers and their toys, swinging school principals and porno fiend preachers will hit Arkansas' chain and independent bookstores around November - just in time for Christmas shopping.

Parker, who earned a master's in journalism from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, is also a noted free-lance journalist. She's been published in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and in US. News and World Report, The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, The Economist, The New York Times Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In the online world, she's been published on Nerve.com an erotica Web site, and at Salon.com, a national news and politics Web site. In 1999 Parker won a Society of Professional Journalists online depth reporting award for a Salon piece she did. It traced thousands of cases of Hepatitis C and HIV in Canada to tainted blood from a prison donation program in Arkansas during Bill Clinton's time as governor.
