I used to read the Playboy/Penthouse reader-submitted stories for laughs.  They were so vulgar and stupid that I derived amusement from them.

You wouldn't be the first one, my friend.

Now here's a little personal story from my early years:

I remember being at Jamesway in the mid 70's one time, and finding quite a nasty sex novel in plain view in the novel rack. So, in the spirit of pre-pubescent derring-do and the need to feel myself a god among my peers, I picked up the book and started to read.

And like most kids, I felt that giddiness, and that nervous high you get from doing something you know you shouldn't.  And I got caught, however my uncle Frank was (and still is) a live-and-let-live kinda' guy who let it slide.

I shudder to think what would have happened if it was my MOM who caught me.  Buggedout

Absolutely true story here: Many years ago I applied for an editorial-assistant job at a magazine publisher. When I arrived for an interview I found out that though this particular company published magazines on virtually any topic you could think of (sports, music, cars, etc.) I would've been working on the adult magazines (which included Swank, Erotic X-Film Guide, and several others)... part of my duties would've been to edit the so-called "letters pages" in those mags, in which "readers" supposedly sent in true tales of their wild exploits. The guy interviewing me told me "Those are all fake, by the way, we have ghost writers who do them for us" and I guess I must've chuckled to myself, cuz he looked at me like "What?" and I sez "Well, I always wondered, now I know."

P.S. I didn't get the job, which was probably for the best anyway.  BounceGiggle

Yeah you didn't get the job, but think of the possibilities, working for an adult magazine.. as some firing company benefits, you could have met some porn starlets and if the situation was right, maybe you could have had some REAL epolits of your own while you were editing the other fakes stuff...

Haha, yeah, it probably would've been fun for a while at least. But at the time I had just entered into a relationship with the woman who eventually became my wife and I have a feeling that eventually it would've screwed us up. I could just imagine coming home dog tired from a long day at work, my lovely wife would've been "in the mood" and I'd say "Oh please, not tonight, honey, I was looking at that stuff all day at work..."  BounceGiggle

Not to mention, if word got out about my occupation it might've made it tough for us to get a church wedding. "And do you take this evil, perverted pornographer who's destined to burn in the fires of Hell forever to be your lawfully wedded husband?"  TeddyR

Ah.  I always suspected as much  BounceGiggle  When I worked at a bookstore I used to read the Penthouse letters every once in a while for a laugh.  The Forum was still a fairly good seller back then, maybe it still is.  (It was always amusing to watch the guys buying porn.  The young ones, my age or younger, would always look a little sheepish when they handed me the mags to ring up.  But the middle-aged guys totally didn't care.)

I've been reading dirty romance books since I was 12, but I wouldn't say I have any go-to author.  Susan Squires is ok if you like vampires; unlike a certain other vampire writer she went to the trouble of actually building up a detailed mythos/backstory that halfway makes sense, and y'know, they have sex.  I kind of like the trashy mystery writers from the 80s too, like Laurence Sanders & Andrew Greely.  I don't think I've read any Gabrielle Prevot, but she sounds interesting.

Yeah I'd say that the risks definitely outweighed the rewards on this one...although it would have been one hell of an interesting job on all accounts!

Does "slash" fanfiction count?

An interesting phenomena. Because of the subject matter, you'd think most of it would be written and read by homosexual males, and while that is true in some small part, alot of it is written and read by heterosexual females. For--apparently--just as heterosexual males like to read about some hot lesbian action, heterosexual females like to read about some hot homosexual action, involving their favorite actors, characters, singers, etc. Even if these actors, characters, singers etc. are stolidly straight.

And if one thinks of girls being bed swappers and hoppers and jumpers, the boys have them beat hands down. And here are a couple of examples of what I mean.

From "Romeo and Juliet" Tybalt is sleeping with Mercutio, who is sleeping with Benvolio who is sleeping with Romeo who is sleeping with his servant Balthasar, and who is servantboy sleeping with . . . ? Tybalt?

And if anyone remembers the TV show "The Tribe," which ran on TV from 1999 to 2003, if one can believe the writers of "slash" fanfiction for that show, there is hardly an young male character on that show who is not sleeping with every other young male character from that show.

What is the male equivalent of the female slut?

That's not so surprising; guy-on-guy fantasies remove some of the danger (for lack of a better word).  Plus, sometimes we like to imagine two favorite characters/actors/whatever together because, well, then there's two of them  Twirling
