Boob! Why Don't You Buck Like Thunder?

If I were President, I would not be making a speech about jobs.

This is Superman time: Lights, Camera, Shut-up, ACTION.

I'd do something or die trying.

"At the risk of making a dozen devoted enemies for life, I can only say the the whiffs I get from the ink of [women writers] are fey, old-hat, Quaintsy Goysy, tiny, too dykily psychotic, crippled, creepish, fashionable, frigid, outer-Baroque, maquillé in mannequin's whimsy, or else bright and stillborn."

Hells' Bells! A new app for the iPhone allows sinners to make an instant confession. The *official* Catholic Church asks the hard questions; you spill the beans.

Using the church's traditional "examination of conscience" criteria, here's my confession, the first one I've made in...

Just before the people who tried to kill me picked up their weapon-- (the gun, the knife, the pipe wrench, the suitcase bomb, the broken scissors)-- here's what they yelled at me, their battle cry of elimination:

Ni**er- loving communist c*nt

After Twilight, Gothic Sex Takes a Bigger Bite

(3) Comments | Posted September 3, 2009 | 12:33 PM

What is it about a vampire and a werewolf that make everyone's pants fly off? Between the pandemonium over Twilight and True Blood, there's been renewed interest in why horror and sex have made a comeback in each other's arms.

I've been publishing erotic literary fiction since...

The Shovel or the Sickle

The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things: of shoes and ships and sealing wax and... NATIONALIZATION.

That word makes a lot of Joseph McCarthy's children see red -- but it's time to step out of the looking glass and put a little blush in...

What's Better Than A Texas Whuppin'?

Sure, I chuckle along with Tom DeLay's homegrown description of last night's election results... but it gives me pause.

How Safe is Your Daughter?

To my mind, it began with the milk cartons-- not the Washington pages.

One day, my breakfast bowl of cereal was no longer accompanied by a back-of-the-box advertisement for secret decoder rings or action-toy figurines.

Instead, the graphic that held my attention was the back of the...

I'm Not Feeling Foley

I am having an unexpected reaction to Congressman Foley's sex scandal.

--Not surprised that a gay-bashing, flag-waving, "save-the-children" Republican turns out to be a closeted chicken hawk who harasses cute boy pages in the House of Representatives.

My friend Kate Bornstein has just written a book called Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives...

Behold the Bible-Strict marriage manual. These earnest Xtian bestsellers instruct newlyweds on how to have hot sex while avoiding all fantasies, masturbation-- and of course, the dreaded sodomy. Oral sex is good-to-go because no one can seem to find a gospel-line against it!
