Kink in exile

Notes from a kinky nomad

How do you shop for porn?

You’re in a bookstore. You brows the erotica section for a while, pick up a couple of things you like, and move to a nearby display. Then you remember another author you meant to check out, so you turn back to the erotica section and find that a gentleman who had been kind of in your filed of vision while you browsed is now actively picking out books.

Do you excuse yourself and reach for the book you wanted?

Wait until he’s gone then come back?

Look over his shoulder to see what he is reading (if he’s cute)?

I find the social constructs around buying and consuming pornography to be fascinating. The whole process is an open secret. Everyone does it. Everyone knows everyone else is doing it. And yet we like to pretend like it’s not happening.

Well sorry to let the cat out of the bag, but Yes, Ma’am: Erotic Stories of Male Submission edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel is quite excellent, and I just had to spread the good word.

  1. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it (I buy most of my books online, but sometimes in actual bookstores too.)
