Bitch in Rubber

In Sitges Time by realandfictionLeave a Comment

When you’ve written a book on orgasm, it’s hard to read what passes for sex scenes in novels. I’m finding I have a new sex-ray vision with my  holiday reading pile. Take The Crime Writer by Jill Dawson that I’ve just finished and which comes out this Thursday. I found myself thinking, Where’s the masturbation scene then? In fact, you …

Beach Book Report

In Sitges Time, Uncategorized by realandfictionLeave a Comment

Worrying about if you are high enough up in the tanning hierarchy can be alleviated by having a good holiday book on the go. As you can see, I’m reading On The Road by Jack Kerouac, the original road trip novel. (The baseball cap is my beach hat, by the way, a genuine guard’s hat from Riker’s Island prison in New York. …

Summer Breasts Question

In Sitges Time by realandfictionLeave a Comment

Being on a beach in the Mediterranean, ones thoughts naturally turn to breasts. It has always really bugged me that men can take their tops off because nobody has eroticised their breasts but we get hassle for it. Apart from this statue here in Sitges, done in the big thighs/small tits Catalan style, I’m rather fond of her. Everyone knows …

Sofa Saturday

In on the road by realandfictionLeave a Comment

As the Cannes Film Festival 2016 hots up, here is a picture I took of Harvey Weinstein at last year’s festival. I’d just asked him what he thought of the comment in Rupert Everett’s recently released memoir, Vanished Years, that Weinstein, the producer behind Pulp Fiction and Billy Elliot, looked like, “An old couch someone left out on the street.” Weinstein …

Real Rock chicks

In London Life by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

Fancy a lollipop? Or some ultimate “rock” chicks? They might  inspire you if you’re having my sort of bank holiday: slumped around your flat stoned, alternating between eating neat condensed milk out of a can and doing your angel cards. Stop what you’re doing immediately and (re)visit Peaches’ Rub video which originally came out this January, for a view of …

Gay Men Draw Vaginas

In London Life by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

I spent Saturday night in London with VS who was over from LA to visit her French friend Florent who has just moved to Brixton with his New York boyfriend, Alex. Wouldn’t you just know it, we ended up talking about female genitals. One of the boys mentioned the “V” word and you know how the mis-used “vagina” word drives …

Thank You

In Sex Drive by Stephanie Theobald1 Comment

I would not have been able to make this three month trans-American trip or last year’s without the help of a core of what I call my “Masturbation Fund Friends.” These are the people who put me up for free in their often space-sensitive apartments in various parts of the USA meaning that I could write and research Sex Drive …

“I’d Kill For His Clit.”

In Sex Drive, Uncategorized by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

Here’s me on my final day in America with The Wizard: I couldn’t leave New York without paying a visit to Betty Dodson who inspired me to write Sex Drive in the first place. When I arrived, she’d just finished being filmed with Dr Juliana Morris who also did the Betty Dodson Masturbation Workshop as well as the teaching one. She …

Big Apple Pony Patrol

In Sex Drive, Uncategorized by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

My final stop-off in New York started off well when my journo friend, Jo, took me to a night in the penthouse of a hotel by the Empire State Building. That sounds quite risqué but it wasn’t that sort of night in a penthouse. It was an evening organised by the Alaskan tourist board. Here is me and Jo when, miraculously, we …

Spicy Maddow

In Sex Drive by Stephanie TheobaldLeave a Comment

After the Emily Dickinson house in Massachusetts, Meg and Jenn and I headed up into what you call the ‘sticks’ in search of a Rachel Maddow sighting. Rachel Maddow, the newscaster is huge with American lesbians, but there’s always a bit of a Rachel Maddow/Ellen Degeneres divide. Ellen is like the shallow rock star on the west coast: While Maddow is …
