When I was researching porn for my new porn by women book while on sabbatical in Oslo, Norway, a journalist that interviewed me about my work described the kind of porn I write about as "gourmet." In another newspaper, it was defined as "humanistic." These labels are somewhat fitting, because I don't like trashy fast food porn or discriminating and violent porn....more

All my work activity was suspended for an hour whilst my computer tried to 'recover' itself following a dodgy Microsoft update. [Note to Bill Gates; why don't you spend some of your gazillion dollar fortune fixing bugs in your operating system? And while you are at it, you could invest in a trendy pair of glasses, fake tan, and a spikey hairdo. Yeh, that'd be good.] ...more
