Flesh, Fetishes, Sex Clubs

I've been busy writing my November ERWA columns, but I wanted to pop in to let you know about an interview I did for Rachel Kramer Bussel's latest anthology, Peep Show: Tales of Voyeurs and Exhibitionists. You'll learn secrets about my inspiration for my story "Clean and Pretty," excerpted in some length at Fleshbot, and some insider tips about Tokyo's forbidden-to-foreigners sex clubs. Plus you'll get to see a nudie picture of me that's even more explicit than this one (hey, isn't it best to start a good meal with an appetizer?)

I'll be writing a more detailed review of this excellent book soon, but I will confess right now Peep Show is one of my favorite set of pages to nestle in (and I've nestled in quite a few). I'm not sure what this says about me. Actually I am sure what this says about me, but I'll bet you'll find these stories of desirous watching and intimate exposure just as seductive and sexy as I do. Which might be why I'm taking my sweet time reading it cover to cover.

Rachel's also made a fantastic book trailer, which features a few lines from my story and a very wet and juicy shower scene.

Go ahead and take a long look at all of these goodies--I won't tell!

A delightful and insightful interview Donna (by which I did not feel surprised)! Peep Show arrived at my door today, and I look forward to delving into it soon.

Congratulations also on the mention at Fleshbot!

Wonderful Donna! Steamy : )

You know, I've been feeling kind of down that I still haven't gotten my peep. **

But that interview was such a lovely view into your story and process, right now I don't mind so much.

I relate to writers being both voyeurs and exhibitionists. Especially in erotica.

I also love the thoughts on unsatisfied yearnings, and I can feel this when you write stories about Japan.

Thanks for the wonderful interview and delicious glimpses!

** My contributor's copies of Peep Show, that is...

ha..i m off to read that interview..i cant wait to..see that pic!!! woohoo donna:-)

Donna said...

Thank you, Emerald--I hope you enjoy the book. I never seem to tire of babbling on about sex and writing (or food).

And thank you my European friends, Isabel and Danielle--isn't borderless blogland a wonderful country?

You didn't get your contributors' copies yet, Craig? Of course, I get mine hand delivered when Felice goes home (not really) but I guess the Pony Express got slowed down in Kansas or something. Btw, I will coo and compliment at greater length, but Craig's story "Ownership" is FANTASTIC!!!

Jeremy Edwards said...

I love "Clean and Pretty"! Donna, you have such a brilliant, erotically powerful way of turning a situation inside out and on its head. Kudos on the well-deserved attention. And, yeah, nice portraits. ; )

I think "Ownership" is terrific, too—intense and tender, sensitive and hot! It's an awesome anthology.

[Ha! My dingling is my spamword.]

Great interview! I will have to wander over to Fleshbot later.

Craig Sorensen said...

Thank you for the kind words about "Ownership," Donna and Jeremy.

Speaking of Ownership, I'm still waiting (anxiously) for my contributor's copies.

"Mr Postman, look and see,
if there some smut in your bag for me..."

Jeremy Edwards said...

Thank you for singing that, Craig. It got "My Dingaling" out of my head!

Great interview, Donna. particularly loved the voyeur/exhibitionist relation to readers/writers. And you looked gorgeous in that photo!
