In 2010 I had an idea to put together an anthology that would, in effect, deconstruct sex in literature–leaving only the scene itself and very little context around it–creating a work that would, ideally, showcase how we all perceive such intimate things. The result was Sex Scene: An Anthology, a collection of stories I am so, so proud of.
And, in the interest of getting it out there, checked out by all y’all who have not already checked it out, it is, as it always has been, free. Very free. (Get yourself a free eBook here.)
I highly recommend that if you haven’t, check it out now. Again, I wouldn’t classify this as erotica, per se, more like an experimentation of sex in literary fiction. Here’s the nitty-gritty:
Sex Scene: An Anthology aims to decontextualize sex, asking the reader to look at the act itself as not only a form of art, but also as the very basest of human urges. The result is a cacophony of unique perspectives, cultures, styles and scenes–from soft and romantic to deranged and hardcore–that invites you to leave any hang-ups behind and actively engage in conversations about the all-too-often taboo topic, showing that, perhaps, we are not so different after all. Featuring stories by: Sabina England, Penny Goring, Dan Holloway, Sara Lippmann, Kirsty Logan, Sarah E. Melville, Gary Percesepe, Leah Petersen, Jeff Pfaller, Remittance Girl, Scott C. Rogers, Robert James Russell, and Cherise Wolas.
