So this time last year, on Super bowl weekend, I’d been pretty much swinging from the chandeliers at a dominatrix dungeon. This year, the dominatrix was out of town so I thought I’d go to an event that billed itself as a “Sex Book Festival.” It turned out to be quite an earnest San Francisco experience in a bookshop ( …

This was the moment of euphoria and excitement at around 8.30 Pm before we went out of the house ready to knock them dead at the sex party in town: Even the Uber ride down was fun. Me and Shawn were the Dirty Dolls. I was speaking French to the taxi driver, telling him I was from Fresno but I’d …

Hanging up the tits…

That’s what Annie Sprinkle claimed she was doing last night at her – she claims- final tit print party at her house in San Francisco. Annie has been doing her tit prints for years but enough’s enough. Last night I hung out with her and some friends who all helped with the process. We were being a collective, apparently. In any case, …

Do you remember Alistair Cook’s 1970s BBC Radio 4 show, Letter From America? He’d talk in his very English voice about The Kennedy assassination and Fall in New England and the funny old man at the corner store with his views US gun laws. I liked to listen to Alistair Cook when I was a kid because America was my …

I read this Volvo garage sign as something completely different as I rode past it this morning. Maybe it’s due to  last night at “Spank” at the San Francisco Citadel. The famous song goes, “If you’re going to San Francisco/be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.” But maybe that should be, “be sure to take your collection of bull …

Does Your Mother Know

Here is me being mysterious in the woods in Texas in Adam Jones’ “spiritual cashmere.” Check out yarnlightcollective.com. You charge it up and say something like, “I chose to stay calm and balanced.” I analysed a cracking hand of tarot afterwards. And here is me in San Francisco a few nights later.

Arizona is an interesting place. You don’t get gum and power balls from the kiddie machines in the supermarkets. you get this: Even confetti comes in a gun: And then you get up in the morning and look out of the window and see this: It’s called a Saguaro cactus.

So here I am, back on the road in the USA. This time last year I was here to meet my sex heroes and do the experimentation bits for Sex Drive (read: masturbation workshops, read dungeon visits, read “energy orgasms” on the hillside of San Francisco). Then there was the sitting in a bedroom in Spain for 3-months to write it …
