So, the early reviews for Jacob Louder’s “First” are in, and, to be honest, Jake should be peeing himself. In fact, I’m pretty sure he is:

“FIRST would be an erotic teen Utopia, if it wasn’t for the bullies that do their best to spoil it. Louder’s novella is a literary page-turner that’s hotter than a porn mag. Get ready to redefine consent, receive blow jobs from your straight friends, and fall in love with a trans 10-year-old who deserves to wear lipstick her whole damn life. A tour de force!” —Lana Fox, author of Confessions of a Kinky Divorcee

“In a story that’s as sweet as it is sticky, Jacob Louder conjures a world that’s long on sexual possibility and short on shame. I wouldn’t mind living there.” —Natty Soltesz, author of Backwoods

“A stunning debut by the fearless Jacob Louder, FIRST hits the erotica scene with a startlingly original voice that displays an unusual freedom in expressing sexual beginnings. The tale of teenage Nico’s introduction to the sexual side of both boys and girls has all the trappings of a good read: plausible and realistic characters; a defined and specific place and time; deliciously descriptive sex; and a bold and unapologetic voice. Not to mention that it starts with my two favorite words in the English language: ‘My cock….’” —Dario Dalla Lasta, Huddle

Peeping with Jack Vettriano

About nine or ten years ago, when I was still living in Britain, Jack Vettriano‘s prints were everywhere.  The classic of his is the Singing Butler.  It’s beautiful, but his sexier pieces draw me in more powerfully.  There are few who communicate desire like Vettriano, or reveal such eloquence in terms of a kinky aesthetic.  And with his sexier work, the viewer is usually peeping — a spy in the bedroom.  Pretty kinky in itself.

Do you think he’d give Go Deeper Press some cover art?  Oh come on, there’s no harm in dreaming, right?

A friend once reminded me that Vettriano was considered a “popular” artist.  I asked him why this was important.  “He’s scoffed at by ‘real’ artists,” said my friend, “but he’s laughing all the way to the bank.”  I reminded him that I didn’t care about whether a piece was “popular” or “high art.”  I’m a sex activist who not only loves erotica, but is pro-porn when everyone is consenting.  In other words, I try to give classism the finger, focusing instead on craft and effect.  Some say that erotica is higher class than porn, but of course there is some beautifully shot porn around and some pretty soulless erotica.  Everything varies.  Simple really.

As I said to my erotic writing class the other night, “Sometimes, I feel that ‘erotica’ is just a fancy way of saying ‘I’m a sex artist.'”  But that doesn’t mean that someone who crafts porn isn’t just as committed a creator.  When we hear that someone makes “porn” or “erotica,” we can respond: “The term that you choose doesn’t bother me.  Just let me see your aesthetic.”  Only after we’ve seen the work for ourselves do we have the right to rate it.

For folks who are using the terms “porn” and “erotica” in exciting and original ways, take a look at Blue Artichoke Films (their movie, Headshot, shows a man being given oral sex…yet we only see his body from the waist up).  Also, I’ve recently heard of Natty Soltesz — I’ve yet to read his work, but when I researched him, I heard him refer to his work as porn.  And according to a reader who I trust with my whole being, Soltesz crafts powerfully hot stories with great skill.  I look forward to reading his work.

In the meantime, here’s some more Vettriano.  Enjoy…
