Tangled Sheets

Hot And Bothered From Michael Thomas Ford, the critically acclaimed author of Last Summer and Alec Baldwin Doesn’t Love Me, comes this sizzling collection of fantasies culled from more than a decade of his best erotic work. These stories of heat, lust, desire, need, and transformation–an Olympian bacchanal, a chance meeting in the men’s room, an S&M-fueled “coaching” session, a police officer who’ll do what it takes to get a confession–are as incredibly hot as they are exquisitely crafted. There’s “Becoming Al,” an “X-rated Flannery O’Connor story” that takes place on the stage at a male peep show. The mosh pit of an underground club brings two punks to the edge and over in the adrenaline-charged “Diving the Pit.” A gorgeous window washer gives a worker drone some high-rise sex in “Washing Up.” And the power of a young man’s first sexual awakening–and the reunion it inspires twenty years later–lies at the heart of the achingly sensual “The Boys of Summer.” Along the way, Ford turns up the heat by confessing the naughty personal thoughts that inspired his steamiest erotica. A visit to his incredibly sexy dentist led to Ford’s delicious story of one explosive oral exam in “The Check Up.” The summer sounds drifting up from the New York City streets on a hot summer night influenced Ford’s sinfully sexy voyeuristic fantasy, “Wednesday, 2 A.M.” A hunky conductor on a commuter train gave Ford lustful thoughts and a whole new meaning for the term “Riding the Rails.” And the discovery of anonymous nude Polaroids gave birth to the no-holds-barred “Dirty Pictures.” Hard-core, tender, imaginative, candid, and just plain hot, these stories prove that when it comes to erotica that’s down-and-dirty AND intelligent, nobody does it better than Michael Thomas Ford.

Erotic Love in Sociology, Philosophy and Literature

Why is ‘love’ taken for granted as a part of human experience? And why is sexual or romantic love in particular so important to us? This book aims to find out, tracing the intellectual history of sexual love, from the ancient Greeks to the modern day. Erotic Love shows how discourses of love have intersected with social and cultural trends, as well as with personal events and experiences. Beginning with the queering of love in Greek antiquity, it looks at how sexual love has been sung about, fictionalized and theorized as a cornerstone of the formation of Western culture. From the courtly love of twelfth-century troubadours and the rise of affective individualism in the eighteenth century, to the way the novel helped catalyze and crystallize the hopes and contradictions of love and marriage, these are decisive episodes in the history of romantic love. Lastly, the book deals with how sociologists and feminist theorists have made sense of the liberalization of sexuality over the last fifty years, especially given the post-romantic pragmatism of commercialized dating practices. Arguing against the over-rationalism of intimate life, Erotic Lov e recognizes the need to liberate love from patriarchal, racist and homophobic prejudices, and highlights the value of literary and sociological traditions to emphasize how they dignify the rhapsodies and the sufferings of love.

Confessions of the Fox

A New York Times Editors’ Choice: “A mind-bending romp through a gender-fluid, eighteenth-century London . . . a joyous mash-up of literary genres shot through with queer theory and awash in sex, crime, and revolution.”

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New Yorker • HuffPost • Kirkus Reviews • Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award • Shortlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize • “A dazzling tale of queer romance and resistance.”—Time

Jack Sheppard and Edgeworth Bess were the most notorious thieves, jailbreakers, and lovers of eighteenth-century London. Yet no one knows the true story; their confessions have never been found.

Until now. Reeling from heartbreak, a scholar named Dr. Voth discovers a long-lost manuscript—a gender-defying exposé of Jack and Bess’s adventures. Is Confessions of the Fox an authentic autobiography or a hoax? As Dr. Voth is drawn deeper into Jack and Bess’s tale of underworld resistance and gender transformation, it becomes clear that their fates are intertwined—and only a miracle will save them all.

Writing with the narrative mastery of Sarah Waters and the playful imagination of Nabokov, Jordy Rosenberg is an audacious storyteller of extraordinary talent.

Praise for Confessions of the Fox

“A cunning metafiction of vulpine versatility . . . an action-adventure tale with postmodern flourishes; an academic comedy spliced with period erotica; an intimate meditation on belonging.”—Katy Waldman, The New Yorker

“Confessions of the Fox is so goddamned good. Reading it was like an out-of-body experience. I want to run through the streets screaming about it. It should be in the personal canon of every queer and non-cis person. Read it.”—Carmen Maria Machado, National Book Award finalist for Her Body and Other Parties

“A hat tip to Moby-Dick . . . a running footnote hall of mirrors to rival Borges . . . one of the most trenchant calls for progressive action that I have read in a very long time.”—The New York Times Book Review

“An ambitious work of metafiction, a sexy queer love story . . . a bold first novel.”—Entertainment Weekly

Feet-Ishism

How is it that the foot and the toes are credited with such strong sexual connotations? Do they represent something out of the ordinary to the human subconscious? How otherwise could these unremarkable parts of the body seem erotic? And what has their appeal to do with the Eternal Mystery that is Woman? Often left uncovered, in former times when total nudity was forbidden or considered unseemly, the foot and its shape allowed the imaginations of observers to roam wild. The only part of the body of a woman occasionally visible (unlike those visible normally or those never visible normally), it inevitably became a symbol for the whole body, as fantasized. These are the questions to which Hans-Jurgen Dopp here applies himself, supporting his conclusions with a remarkable collection of rare illustrations.
