It's my great great privilege to have a piece included in a wonderful new project, put together by the inspirational Elly, aka Quiet Riot Girl.
My piece, Meat, is here. It is a double privilege for it to be illustrated by the amazing Penny Goring
This is what Elly has to say:
Games Perverts Play : stories and essays from the sidelines of pornography...
Games Perverts Play is a new and unique collaborative writing project, edited by Quiet Riot Girl http://www.quietgirlriot.wordpress.com/
Games Perverts Play uses pornography and essays to explore the less examined sides of our libidos, and to dissect our sexualities. Gender, power, pain and violence are all present in the background when we play. This project brings them to the fore, and enables us to look afresh at what it is we are doing when we write about sex, when we play sex games, and when sex gets serious.
First edition September 2010: OBJECTIFIED
We are told every day that women in particular are objectified in our culture, particularly by pornography. The word is supposed to have negative connotations.
But what happens when a bunch of writers take that word, and roll it round their tongues. What emerges from their pens? Their cunts and their dicks?
Here, writers Dan holloway, Marc Nash, Penny Goring, Mark Simpson, M de Winter, Arjun Basu and the editor, Quiet Riot Girl have objectified ourselves for your pleasure, and maybe your discomfort too.
We hope you enjoy the experience.
