Man in Pants
Lady Porn Day got off to a rocky start with flyers primarily depicting half-naked women, a move smartly and swiftly criticised by Maymay and Remittance Girl for lacking diversity and for failing to show us the dudes. LPD creator, Rabbit White, has to be applauded for taking these criticisms on board. Her site now has some great images of sexy men and her project is shaping up to be a wonderful space for sharing info, experiences and links. I love this post where comments from women expressing their thoughts on porn are posted on retro porn pics. ‘I HATE STORYLINES’ someone yells. Me too! I don’t need a narrative with my visual porn. I read books and watch films for narrative. I want my porn to cut to the chase, thanks.
Anyway, the man in pants. Oh my! If you’ve read my stuff, you may know I adore men with shaved heads and stubble, wearing big, bad boots. I’m also rather partial to unwaxed bodies, hairy arms and hefty wristwatches. Crikey, and look at those thighs! Truly, he is one of the most beautiful men I’ve seen for some time. He’s advertising posh pants here and he has a dog and reads books and is sensitive and rugged and everything! Eternal gratitude to Elizabeth Coldwell for bringing him to my attention.
In other news, the Valentine’s reading in Hoxton went wonderfully well. KD Grace has posted a fab write up complete with pics on her blog. Last night in Brighton, one of my stories was read (not by me) at Are You Sitting Comfortably?, an event created by White Rabbit (this is nothing to do with Rachel/Rabbit White/Write of LPD – pay attention!). These are delightfully bonkers, themed evenings (last night was ‘Sex’) held regularly in Brighton and London, and are well worth checking out.
More good stuff – our anal erotica ebooks, BadAss and Kiss My Ass, are still selling ridiculously well. Sales over Christmas were great – and that made sense because we’d made Violet Blue’s annual hot list and over the holidays everyone’s drunk and they want it up the arse. Uh, I mean they have more time for reading. But sales have been even higher since then. I am so thrilled by this, and I love that people are reading my anal sex with an astronaut story because it’s a piece that, for all its melancholy, makes me happy.
Well, that’s my round up of happenings in Kristina World. I only have one more thing to say: WET.
