Show A Little Passion Baby, Show A Little Style

I often wonder if there are any taboos left in the world. With every thing you could think of fetishized and championed with its own following on the Internet, it is hard to believe there is anything out there that can shock most people.

Filament Magazine stumbled upon one of the last remaining taboos out there. The sight of a hard cock in a magazine that isn't aimed at gay men. Women wouldn't want to see that, would they? I mean, us meek and mild women don't even get off visually, right? We'd rather read the flowery language and sweeping scenes of the romance novel and let the long haired and non-threatening man on the cover fill our minds with thoughts of marriage and babies. Give me a big, fucking break. That might be one way to do it, but its certainly not the only way.

I don't know about all women, I can only speak for me. But, I like looking at hot guys. Naked, not naked, hard, not hard, I have a pretty open policy about the hotness I like to peep. God forbid, there is a magazine out there that wants to cater to the women of the world who aren't content to sneak gay porn to look at hot men, who want a women's magazine that doesn't feature an anorexic model on the cover and isn't filled with details about how to look and dress better.

Filament took a lot of heat for proposing such ideas, setting off a media frenzy and sparking much debate about erect vs. non-erect penises in print. In the end, with the help of reasonable and probably horny people, they met their sales goals and will now feature some hot, hard men in their second issue. I'm pleased to also be a part of that issue. My story, One Night Only, is gracing the same pages as some very happy, hard men. And, the story is on page 69. How great is that?

So, if you are in the UK, get out there and get a copy come September 1, or get online (every where else) and grab yours. Help Filament stick there finger in the eye of the establishment and help get rid of antiquated attitudes and ideas about what women want. Plus, it is just a really cool fucking magazine. I also want to thank the ladies of Erotica Cover Watch, not just for some of the images used in this blog, but for their amazing support of Filament and the fight to get the second issue published the right way. You ladies rock.

Stay tuned for Filament related give-aways and more updates as the magazine rolls out.

I really like the song in which that post title is, by the way. : )
