Preparation for reading smut aloud at Dirty Sexy Words

I’m standing in my kitchen reading sexy chapters aloud. Testing them for tonight. I’ll be reading at the erotica reading slam Dirty Sexy Words at Sh! in London.

I think I’m going to read the funny condom buying scene, Chapter 2, Hearts Apart.

But perhaps the last chapter of Hearts Apart seems appropriate because we’ll be in a women’s sex shop surrounded by sex toys and… if you’ve read that chapter you’ll know.

But there are 62,000 words of story before we get to the last chapter, so what are the key things the audience need to know when I introduce my book.

  1. It’s a story of first love between two young men, Aaron & Joe.
  2. Aaron’s a plumber. They discover long lost sex toys in people’s homes – look down the back of the radiator – is that a sock?
  3. Aaron is shy. Not comfortable voicing his thoughts about feelings and desires. As the reader we know what he’s thinking but he doesn’t talk with Joe.
  4. Joe is hung like a porn star. It’s relevant in this particular chapter.  It’s relevant in book 3 too, but you’ll have to wait a while for that.
  5. Aaron is averagely equipped in the penis department. I’ll tell the audience because I think there is some comic mileage in this fact, and making people laugh is my goal.

Back to my rehearsal.
