So, we proceed through the first dialogue, which contains a hint of incest, some men engaging in violent anal play (a girth of six inches rammed in without lubrication), and perhaps the finest description of a girl ever written in any language. The audience? Those of whom have a classical education under their belts: DearContinue reading “Sade: Philosophy in the Boudoir: “First Dialogue””
Can we just all agree that everything about this word is amazing? LUBRICIOUS
From my experience, erotica by left-leaning authors tends to be pretty lovey-dovey; erotica by right-leaning authors tends to be FILL AND FLOOD EVERY ORIFICE. Take your pick! “Whereas the state institutions provided by Rousseau’s Social Contract allow us to recapture some of the goodness and innocence we enjoyed in our original “Nature,” Sade sees allContinue reading “Obama vs Romney as explained by Marquis de Sade”
Yeah, you know you want to see Bunuel’s eyeball-slice…so here you go, you hero, you.
I’m getting pretty great at picking out foreshadowing. Regarding the final two lines of the last chapter, which I attempted to explicate before giving up and going to bed, the beginning of the next chapter goes in further depth (without coming to any more satisfying a conclusion than I did). Tough shit. In short: urine =Continue reading “Bataille: Story of the Eye: “A Trickle of Blood””
So, I was reading Cosmo the other day. That’s true. So, there was an article about how to make your dreams work for you. The gist of it was that your dreams are the time of day during which your brain can creatively solve problems that afflict your waking hours. It seeks creative answers, whichContinue reading “Bataille: Story of the Eye, “A Sunspot””
What it’s come down to is that I’ve lost all interest in the World of Sex, except from a purely critical perspective. If you can’t reach me by phone, find me in the backyard digging my own grave. So, yeah, the “Sex Books” designation is gone, because let’s just say I’ve given up on tryingContinue reading “Bataille, Story of the Eye, “Marcelle’s Smell,” or farewell, totemism!”
Indeed, I use an asterisk for assholes, and a coffeebean for vaginas. The first thing one realizes is that this is a very difficult section of the body to draw. The geography is simply confounding.
Tonight we continue with two more books, Nin’s Delta of Venus, and Sachar-Masoch’s Venus in Furs. Prepare for a miserable and old-fashioned discussion of the sexes. Apologies in advance. Venus in Furs Venus in Furs leads us immediately to a comparison between it and The Story of O, the main difference initially being that ofContinue reading “Sex Books, Day 2: Venus in Furs, and Delta of Venus.”
And so we begin by speaking of love. The tamest, most secret longings our hearts felt in grade school. We stray at some point, a million stories left untold. But, we reach today, when our fresh stories are more interesting to us than our stale ones. And then what? You get involved in stories of loveContinue reading “Sex Books, Day 1: The Story of the Eye & The Story of O”
