Tied Up In Thought: Archaeology of Personalities, by Georg Barkas

Archaeology of Personalities: A Linguistic Approach to Erotic Rope Bondage; 2017; self-published.I happened across this brief, fascinating book via a buy link the author posted on Facebook, proof that such methods can sell at least a few copies. Being interested in both linguistics and Kinbaku, or Japanese rope bondage (but a practitioner of neither), this…

Today I guest!

The perceptive and intelligent—not to mention organized—Emmanuelle de Maupassant has wrangled my voluminous babblings about myself into this wonderfully coherent article about my influences and my own writing. To say that I am happy with it is a radical understatement. For those not familiar with Emmanuelle’s studies on the field of erotica based on wide and…

Blue now available in print.

Sublime Scenes: Saturno Buttò and Jeanne de Berg

I. I’m not exactly sure when I discovered the art of Saturno Buttò, but I do remember how. After a discussion with an artist friend about an erotic art idea, I googled “erotic art Renaissance style” (which was not the idea), and up popped dozens of thumbnail images in red, gold, orange, black.

Blue has been garnering wonderful reviews on websites, Amazon and Goodreads. Here is a nice gathering of blog reviews, because I know you want to keep reading them over and over, just as I do. “This is an accomplished and unflinching first novel, showing great understanding of both the psychology and practicality of dominance and…
