We ladies invite men into the parlour for some stimulating conversation. Brandy & cigars, optional.

Bookish Types Discuss Books, What Else? Part Two

The authors talk about what they read ~ And dish on who they think are the sexiest authors.

Authors on The Act of Writing

Are they 'compelled' to write, or must they chain themseleves to their desks...

Author Inspiration

Oddly enough, no one mettions the muses specifically, but I'm under the belief that they are describing what the muse shows them...

Josh Speaks

Paxton Vs Pullman playwright Josh Carson dishes on his life as a bachelor, actor, and funny man. (No, ladies, he doesn't have performance anxieties!)

The Next Carrie Bradshaw?

"I'm not a writer -- I'm a sexual anthropologist." -- Carrie Bradshaw

There's probably not a person in the US that's not familiar with Sex and the City -- the wildly popular series about a female foursome living and loving in the Big Apple. And while each of the characters struck a chord for the show's thousands of fans, no one stoked the creative fires inside like Carrie Bradshaw.

Authors Discuss Politics, Religion & Sex

Which would they rather write about? Which would they rather read about?

What Is Erotica?

Authors discuss the bastard child of written works: Erotica.

Letter From The EditorAuthor, Author

According to our poll, everyone at Sex-Kitten.net is a serious book addict. (Or, we have little laundry to do, being naked most of the time ~ entirely possible...)

And don't even get us started about writing ~ it's like talking, which is like breathing for God's sake!

...Oh, wait a minute... this issue is all about writing, books, reading & authors!

Well, that explains the HUGE size of this issue! *giggle*

Come meet the folks doing all the talking! (Hey, there are famous people in here!)

She hopes to one day use these powers to command the crazies to help her fight crime. If this does not happen she will continue to write. She runs a “successful” website that a lot of people read.

Le Petit Mort: An explanation of what’s sexual in literature

For three days I went back and forth, bickering with myself on exactly which short story I considered “ultra sexual”. At first, I figured I should go with something that would personify the arched back, glowing skin, lip biting fantasy that most people expect. Which would have been fun, expected, but it wouldn’t have been me.

While she's been called many things by her clients ("The way she riffs on matters sexual and otherwise, she is my white Billie Holiday" & "A 21st century Anais Nin with just a touch of Machiavelli."), mostly she just likes to be called Angela. Make sure you visit her award winning website.

Quick-Change Artist: PhoneSex Operator to Sex Kitten in the Blink of an Eye or Twitch of an Ear

The Cranky Uterus

Each day the decision gets easier but it is still a hurdle. Do I wear the bra or the binder? Bra… binder…. bra… binder… It’s enough to make me crazy sometimes. If I put the bra on, it is the only piece of “drag” that I’m wearing (yeah, let that one twist your brain). If I put on the binder, then I have to worry if my co-workers (who don’t know about my trans identity yet) will notice that my breasts have suddenly gone into hiding.

ReadingNile River Woman

A collection of poems by Kola Boof. Kola herself says "'Nile River Woman' was my earliest, angriest book, and it will be interesting to see whether or not a White woman can really review it." Does Gracie get it? Yes. No. Maybe so.

Kola Boof: The Message & The Messenger

Perhaps I am too Utopian *wink* but I do believe that when we gain insight & understanding, we can put our hearts & ethics into action. I respect the hell out of Kola Boof. Admire her greatly. Even when her words sting. For behind them, truth rings. I'd like to think there are others out there who can be taught daily, and not just from some 'word a day' calendar.

Gracie talks with Kola about the messages in her book of poems, Nile River Woman.

An Interview with Bee Lavender

DeeDee speaks with Bee regarding her life and her autobiography, Lessons in Taxidermy.
