I saw “Reality Bites” at a seminal point in my life. I had recently graduated from college and simultaneously just realized that nothing in the world was the way I thought it was. The world was not, in fact, eagerly anticipating my arrival and waiting to hand me an array of opportunities. It was instead somewhat willing to offer me a chance to be an editorial assistant at a magazine I didn’t read for a rate just above the poverty level. Dashing men weren’t lining up to wine and dine me and teach me the ways of the ever-glamorous world I was joining. Instead, overgrown frat guys, who seemed roughly 2000 percent less fascinating now that I was no longer attending fraternity parties, were mildly interested in hanging out. Keep reading »

Mining my life for sexual material wasn’t entirely new. I’d written, after all, about my sex life in various publications and even penned an extremely graphic novel chapter about a guy masturbating to a picture of a girl he liked and read it at Rachel Kramer Bussel’s now-defunct reading series, “In The Flesh.”

But that scene was funny more than it was dirty. Besides, it wasn’t about me. Plus I’d abandoned that novel halfway through so it never saw the light of day.

In the books I’d published, I’d somehow avoided sex. My mother even commented at one point that the sex scenes in my books were more coitus interruptus than actual coitus. Keep reading »

When I decided to revamp my life according to the principles of Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl in order to write my memoir Falling For Me, I not only committed to learning to cook, decorate, put myself together and tackle a whole bunch of new activities (ceramics, anyone?) but I also agreed to embrace at least a few of her ideas for meeting men.

A Woman Walks Into A Spanking Party And …

Somehow the best description and the worst characterization of a spanking fetish occurred in the same article on Salon.com in a piece by Frisky contributer Anna David called “The Joy of Spanking.”

First, the best description of a spanking fetish, as described by a man who has one. While at a spanking party in New York City’s West Village, she talks to Gary, who explains how spanking is a need, not a want, and vanilla sex just isn’t an option: “I really like vanilla ice cream, but I like it as part of a banana split; without the nuts and the chocolate sauce and the whipped cream and the banana, I’m bored.”

And now, for the worst. Well, read the article. Keep reading »

Crave: “Bought” By Anna David (Win A Copy!)

Summer has (almost) arrived! You know what that means? It’s time to put down the Dostoyevsky and put that dogeared copy of “Siddhartha” back on the shelf — those books are for the damp, frigid winter — and pick up some trashy, sexy, and deeply enjoyable beach reading. Our first recommendation for your summer of pleasurable page turning? “Bought” by Anna David. The novel is a followup to “Party Girl,” and continues to follow the oh-so-exciting life of L.A. magazine writer, Emma Swanson. This time around, she’s writing a story about a high-class call girl and discovers some tricks of the trade in the process. But it’s not all fun and games, as Emma must contend with a moral quandry of her own. Hooked yet? [$14.99, Amazon]

We’re giving away five copies of “Bought” by Anna David, but you have to work if you want it in your beach bag. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, May 22 through Thursday, May 28—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!
