And now for something completely different: the erotic story through narrative nonfiction! And we have a spectacular group of authors to lead the way on November 4th. We’ll examine everything from octogenarian sex to training a BDSM slave to the sex drive in overdrive – despite impending menopause! It’s a Ravenous Nights that promises to excite and elucidate. Join us!
Karen Abbott is the author of two narrative nonfiction books, the New York Times bestseller Sin in the Second City, which tells the true story of two sisters who ran the world’s most famous brothel and the nationwide battle to shut them down, and American Rose: A Nation Laid Bare, a portrait of Gypsy Rose Lee and her times. She contributed to Erica Jong’s recent collection, Sugar in My Bowl, which she’ll share with us at Ravenous Nights.
Laura Antoniou is the author of the best selling Marketplace series of BDSM novels, about a realistic, modern day slave training world. In addition to writing a ton of other erotic material, she has edited over a dozen anthologies and is collecting stories for even more right now. For over 20 years she’s been teaching and ranting at the kinky and alt-sex communities, and her contribution to Tristan Taormino’s The Ultimate Guide to Kink: BDSM, Role Play and the Erotic Edge is a rare example of her non-fiction work. Naturally, it’s all about how to train a slave. She can be found at lantoniou.com and on Fetlife and Facebook.
When Michelle Churchill approached her fiftieth birthday, she found herself careening into menopause. Suddenly, she could think of nothing but men—about their legs, the hair on their bodies, how their hands would feel holding hers—with an ever-present desire to have male contact in any way she could. She signed up for every on-line dating serviced she could find and attempted to date the entire Eastern Seaboard and out of that experience came I Thought I Grew Up, a story of coming of age – again.
