At the beginning of the sexual revolution, while Mustn’t is rapidly changing to Must, a young man tries to make sense of it all: The romance, confusion, gross-out, and terror. The joys of male sexuality. The good-natured male/female xenophobia. The stages of intimacy. How to consent. Aphrodite’s curse. What women want. Why guys fear intimacy. What “NO” means. The Goddess.And much, much more — all in the quest for deeply meaningful casual sex. Love… Like… Whatever combines story-telling and satire, romantic poetry and male wisdom.
Preview audiences have said:
“Full of the unexpected.”
“I like how you point out those things we all feel but rarely admit.”
“Very honest – not usually put out there. Men especially will appreciate it being said.”
“Very witty, but some people may be offended.”
“All your stuff is about sex.”
“Loved your emotion and the subtle rhymes.”
