Jessica Pilot sits down with the Porcelain Twinz, the (New Age–y and straight-edge, it turns out!) erotic performers who plan to sue the Box for treating them not-so-nice. They don’t reveal much beyond what they already blabbed about on their MySpace page — either they’re saving more of the juicy stuff for their updated book (the Wayans brothers asked them for coke!) or they’re just plain out of ammo. (Actually, there’s this: “The Twinz claim that Box employees have been known to service patrons in the bathroom downstairs” — so that’s why there’s handcuffs over the toilets!) Speaking of cuffs, an officer at the NYPD’s Fifth Precinct does have something interesting to add. He tells Pilot, “We are on the case. And we know there are drugs going around there, it’s ongoing.” Uh-oh. Between this and the community-board problems, you gotta imagine the owners of this joint are feeling a little boxed in right now.
