BOMB Magazine’s Monica de la Torre writes of the erotic novella, How to Train Your Virgin, written by Wednesday Black (IRL Leia Menlove):
… the first title, Wednesday Black’s How To Train Your Virgin, a fabulist novella about the shape-shifting king and queen of an otherworldly realm. They swing both ways and can interact with humans through their dreams. They have intercourse with creatures, including centaurs and mermaids, yet what propels the plot is an age-old cliché—the king’s lust for a couple of virgins, a girl and a boy, and the queen’s shattering sense of self-worth: “I choke my bitterness down. Why has my husband tired of me?” The account of the queen’s mission to deflower the virgins before her roving husband gets to them is interspersed with clever addresses to the reader that include ruminations on reverse psychology, the proper décor for seduction, and hipsters’ detachment.

Thank you, Krystal Ball for having me and Paul Chan on your show to talk about the New Lovers erotica series. We had a blast, even if my face was twitching uncontrollably.
oh. And there’s also this trailer for How To Train Y.our Virgin. LOL
It’s true. The hallowed New York Times blog has mentioned the proliferation of erotic literature (literotica as some call it), and mentioned Badlands Unlimited New Lovers series in particular. How to Train your Virgin is mentioned as “Smutty Books for Smart People.” Read it here, then for goodness sake, or for badness, like my mean and powerful main character, The Queen, go buy it here!
Vogue interviewed game-changing artist, Paul Chan, in the March issue of Vogue. You can read the article here at Scribd or pick up Vogue’s latest issue! Who does’t like vogue? Just like: who doesn’t like virgins? It’s a no brainer.
Is this shameless self-promotion?
Yup. But this will be a space for erotic writing soon enough…
Wednesday Black might have something to say in future. Not today, though.
