I can help with that. My girlfriend showed me how.

Who has been drawing my book covers without my permission?
Obviously the most useful form of flirting is “liking” random old pictures from someone’s tumblr.
A friend recently reminded me of one of the first things I ever read in public. It was at the Bowery Poetry Club, though it certainly wasn’t poetry. There were a few readings and some burlesque that night.
Little did I know that while waiting backstage to go on, all of the burlesque performers would get completely nude and casually chat with me, which was very distracting for novice Jack!
My reading went somewhat horribly, though I’m amused at the fabulously bombastic title of what I read. It’s also interesting how different my style was four years ago. I was more lyrical, but far more clumsy, which can have a charm of its own. Also, I am pretty sure I didn’t pronounce callipygian correctly.
The Callipygian Sublimation
She is a candy stranger. Perfect in the way someone you don’t know at all can be perfect. Her small breasts and her large hips and soft swell of an ass that seems nearly impossible on her tiny frame. Her thin waist and her wild hair. That exoticness that is so difficult for people to get right.
She is new to this, but she’ll do just fine. In fact, it’s hard to find regulars with an attitude so perfect for these games. Right for me, that is. Everyone wants something different from places like this. The Venn Diagrams of our emotional, physical and sexual wants. Cross-indexed by our needs.
She is smart, very smart, enthusiastic, very aware of her own desires. She isn’t in this to see, she is in this to get what she has needed for a while but didn’t have a name for. She wants to play, but not for keeps. Those words would be what a doctor would write on my prescription, if there were doctors for such things.
Good morning Dirty Boys,
I have so been enjoying the prizes I won at the last Dirty Boys Reading - I devoured Guy New York’s Island on the Edge of Normal and am eagerly awaiting my copy of Jack Stratton’s That Sort of Thing. As you can see, I’m also very happy with my Dirty Boys t-shirt. Though it’s not quite my size, it is perfect to slip into on a lazy Sunday morning after a particularly dirty Saturday evening… Thank you all very much, and I look forward to hearing more of your dirty tales.From the lovely Piper, winner of our Dirty Boys giveaway last Sunday.
I’m excited to announce my new novella That Sort of Thing, the story of a woman named Valentine who meets a charming writer of risqué stories. As she is seduced by his words she is also confronted by the guilt of playing his taboo games. Will reality live up to the dirty fantasies?
This novella can be purchased as an ebook or an audiobook (recorded by me!) exclusively at writingdirty.com, though it will eventually be up on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Photos from the last Dirty Boys reading at The Magician. Catch the next reading 7 pm this Sunday (the 9th), again at The Magician.
Great pictures by an amazing photographer.
Mm. Organization porn.

Thus this photo shoot comes to an end. I’m looking for new models in the NYC area. It has been an interesting journey both learning and remembering the technical side of photography, as well as finding my eye again. I enjoy it and it certainly informs and inspires my writing.

Another pretty site I will not be using.
Some books are old friends. Opening them up is like sitting down to coffee with someone you know inside and out.
"Five hours’ New York jet lag and Cayce Pollard wakes in CamdenTown to the dire and ever-circling wolves of disrupted circadian rhythm.
It is that flat and spectral non-hour, awash in limbic tides, brainstem stirring fitfully, flashing inappropriate reptilian demands for sex, food, sedation, all of the above, and none really an option now.”
