We moved from the Mid-West to Lost Wages and I remember reading in the paper about wackos wanting to burn books in the libraries and schools. There was some woman who forced her daughter to check out and read a book about Cerberus the three-headed dog, who guards the gates of hell.
Then she went before the school board and claimed that the book scared her daughter and demanded it be removed from the library. Now keeping in mind that mom forced the daughter to check out the book, what is she willing to do to get this book banned?
It turned out that some radical preacher had emailed her about the book and the teachings of Satan and hell it espoused. I always thought that parents should protect their children and not force them to do things to support an agenda they supported.
Likewise, we writers of smut must endure the taunts of the right wing nut jobs, sort of like the taunts hurled by the Frenchmen in The Search for the Holy Grail. Personally horror films scare me and I refuse to watch them but I don’t rail to ban those movies. From Dusk till Dawn with George Clooney and Salma Hayek is just about all I can take and if it wasn’t for the strippers, I’d have never made it.
P.S. I realize that Jennifer Tilley doesn’t write books but shows off her melons in Bride of Chucky and in the hottest girl-on-girl scene in the non-porn movie “Bound” with Gina Gershon. I love Jennifer’s voice and would love to hear, “I want you to cum on my face!” LOL
