The next Godless Perverts Story Hour is happening Saturday, September 6!

It’s time again for the Godless Perverts Story Hour, the performance and entertainment branch of the Godless Perverts empire! Join us at the Center for Sex and Culture for an evening about how to have good sex without having any gods, goddesses, spirits, or their earthly representatives hanging over your shoulder and telling you that you’re doing it wrong. We’ll be bringing you depictions, explorations, and celebrations of godless sexualities, as well as critical, mocking, and blasphemous views of sex and religion. The evening’s entertainment will have a range of voices — sexy and serious, passionate and funny, and all of the above — talking about how our sexualities can not only exist, but even thrive, without the supernatural.

Annabeth Leong on “Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories About Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns, & More”

Long before I read Greta Christina‘s book Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories About Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns, & More, I was lucky enough to encounter its title story. This was early in my career as a reader of erotica, and it pushed buttons I didn’t even know I had. Though I got off a great deal, I also found myself moved by the story of shifting desires, love as insufficient, and exploration as paramount. Reading “Bending” was one of the first times I realized that erotica isn’t the low form it’s made out to be.

Fast-forward many years, and “Bending” has become one of a handful of stories I return to again and again. It’s not just for the filthy, lovingly fetishized, obsessive ass play, though I do still love that. It’s also that few pieces of writing have been wiser about the issues I’ve faced in BDSM as I’ve come to practice it, not just read about it. When I’m distressed about having changed in a way I swore I never would, it’s to “Bending” that I turn.

When I read Christina’s entire collection, I recognized the fearless gaze I first met in that story I have loved so well. In her introduction, Christina explains that she hopes each story conveys the respect she has for sex itself. And Christina respects sex enough to visit hot and uncomfortable places, to trust that adults understand what it means “to imagine things we wouldn’t actually want to do—even things we think are immoral.” She respects her audience enough to believe that we will sort out the difference between fantasy and endorsement. “If we have any freedom at all,” she writes, “it’s between our ears: the freedom to think about whatever we like.”

Thus begins a really nice, really thoughtful review of my erotic fiction collection, Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories About Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns, & More. To read more, read the rest of the review. Many thanks to Annabeth Leong at the Circlet Press blog!

Godless Perverts Story Hour This Saturday June 14 — And a Godless Perverts Social Club Thursday June 19!

Godless Perverts Banner

We have a couple of awesome Godless Perverts events coming up soon! We’re having one of our infamous performance events, the Godless Perverts Story Hour, on Saturday June 14. And this month, we’re expanding the Godless Perverts Social Club, the social/ community arm of the Godless Perverts empire, to twice a month — third Thursdays, as well as first Tuesdays — and our third Thursday Social Club will be Thursday June 19!

Saturday June 14: We’re having a Godless Perverts Story Hour on Saturday June 14! The Godless Perverts Story Hour is the performance/ entertainment branch of the Godless Perverts empire. It’s an evening about how to have good sex without having any gods, goddesses, spirits, or their earthly representatives hanging over your shoulder and telling you that you’re doing it wrong. We’ll be bringing you depictions, explorations, and celebrations of godless sexualities, as well as critical, mocking, and blasphemous views of sex and religion.

SImon Sheppard Chris Hall Greta Christina

Our June 14 event is part of LGBT Pride Month, and for the occasion, we’ll be emphasizing queer readers and sexualities. Our readers and performers include: renowned Skepchick contributor Heina; Jon Ginoli, co-founder of queercore band Pansy Division; local tech geek and editor-in-chief of io9, Annalee Newitz; poet and co-founder of homohop group Deep Dickollective, Juba Kalamka; and erotica writer and activist Simon Sheppard. Not to mention co-hosts and co-organizers Chris Hall and me me me! Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St. in San Francisco (near Civic Center BART). Festivities start at 7:00 pm. $10-20 sliding scale donation; no-one turned away for lack of funds; benefit for the Center for Sex and Culture.

Thursday June 19: Starting in June, the Godless Perverts Social Club will now be meeting twice a month — first Tuesday, and third Thursday! This is the socializing/ hanging out branch of Godless Perverts. Community is one of the reasons we started Godless Perverts. There are few enough places to land when you decide that you’re an atheist; far fewer if you’re also LGBT, queer, kinky, poly, trans, or are just interested in sexuality. And the sex-positive/ alt-sex/ whatever- you- want- to- call- it community isn’t always the most welcoming place for non-believers. So please join us — on Thursday June 19, and on Tuesday July 1.

We’re going to do slightly different formats for the two clubs. Our Third Thursday Social Clubs will be a little more structured — we’ll pick a topic, let people know what it is ahead of time, have a moderator/ host who leads the discussion, maybe even get in special guests to guide discussions on particular topics. In June, that’ll be Thursday June 19.

Our topic for June 19: Sex-Positivity and Secularism in Schools: The New Frontier of Tolerance Education. We’ll be talking about promoting sex-positive sex education, supporting non-religious youth, ending peer-to-peer and institutionalized slut-shaming in schools, and anything else related to secularity, sexuality and education.

The first Tuesday Social Clubs will continue to be more loosely-structured, casual affairs: we typically start with a check-in question and do a little moderating to make sure everyone gets to talk who wants to, but mostly we just nosh and sit around schmoozing about whatever topics happen to come up. On First Tuesdays, we’ll keep doing that. In July, Tuesday July 1.

All Social Clubs are at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s renowned BDSM-themed coffee house — 289 8th St in San Francisco, near Civic Center BART — for an evening of conversation and socializing. All orientations, genders, and kinks (or lack thereof) welcome. 7:00 – 9:00 pm. There’s no admission, but we ask that you buy food and drink at the counter, and/or make a donation to the venue. (Their food is quite yummy, with both full dinners and lighter snacks/ beverages, and they have the best milkshakes in town.)

If you want to be notified about all our Godless Perverts events, sign up for our email mailing list, or follow us on Twitter at @GodlessPerverts. You can also sign up for the Bay Area Atheists/ Agnostics/ Humanists/ Freethinkers/ Skeptics Meetup page, and be notified of all sorts of godless Bay Area events — including the Godless Perverts. And of course, you can always visit our Website to find out what we’re up to, godlessperverts.com. Hope to see you soon!

Greta’s Interview With The Humanist Hour!

The Humanist logoPodcast fans — I have a really fun interview up with Todd Stiefel and Kim Ellington at The Humanist Hour, the podcasting arm of The Humanist magazine! Of course we talk about my new book, Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, And Why — what surprised me when I was researching the book; how coming out can cultivate other atheists; how we can encourage other atheists to come out without guilt-tripping or pressure; when to put off coming out; how staying in the closet has its own risks; Atheist Mythbusting 101 and doing our homework before we come out; differences between coming out atheist and coming out LGBT; why we should care about diversity in atheist and humanist communities; and more.

But we also talk about erotic fiction; unicorn sex; tattoos; how authors can sign Kindles; and other silly topics. It was a fun interview, with much laughing, along with serious conversation about deep topics. And the podcast also gets into geocentrism (no really — it’s a thing again!); the Stephen Fry videos on humanism; fun with drugs; electric cars; Toastmasters; and more. Enjoy!

We also had Q&A after the performances, and that’s on the video as well.

The video quality isn’t super-mega-awesome, what with it being a recording of a livestream and all. But it’s not bad, and you get a good sense of the flavor and energy of the show.

We hope to be posting all the individual performances as their own short YouTube videos soon, in case there’s one particular one you want to link to (or want to watch over and over and over again…) In the meantime — enjoy!

Godless Perverts Story Hour at Skepticon 6 – VIDEO!

If you weren’t lucky enough to go to Skepticon 6 — or if you were at Skepticon 6, but for some inexplicable reason you missed the Godless Perverts Story Hour that we held there — we have a treat for you. Thanks to Rob Lehr, videographer extraordinaire of Hambone Productions, the event was captured on video, and you can watch the whole thing right now! Well, if you’re at work, maybe not right now…

Organized by David Fitzgerald, Chris Hall (sadly in absentia at Skepticon), and me, the Godless Perverts Story Hour at Skepticon featured David Fitzgerald’s naughty naughty porn about an atheist’s seduction of two Mormon missionaries; Heina Dadabhoy’s sexy, thoughtful, funny piece about trying to reconcile her horniness with her now-vanished Muslim faith — and about Western men simultaneously fetishizing her and trying to rescue her; my own bad self reading my porn about a religiously guilty gay man hooking up anonymously in rest stops; Rebecca Watson’s uproarious memoir about her hookup with an ex-Mormom with some unusual ideas about sex; and the always-hilarious Keith Lowell Jensen’s weirdly sweet, weirdly unsettling stand-up comedy piece about (among other things) being a horny teenager at Christian camp. Enjoy!

Hope to see you at the next thing!

“Bending” Pre-Nominated for Audie, the Audiobook of the Year Award!

bending cover audibleOoo, this is so exciting! Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories About Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns & More, has been nominated for an Audie — Audible.com’s awards for the best audiobooks of the year! Pre-nominated would be more accurate, I guess: Audible editor Susie Bright has submitted her picks for the awards to the Audible judges, and Bending is one of them. In the Erotica category, naturally.

Here’s what nominating editor Susie Bright had to say about it:

People may not know it now, but this will be the most influential erotica book of the decade… not for its commercial effect on romance, like 50 Shades, but rather its political and aesthetic effect on how we are going to talk about the truth of sex and desire.

Yes, it’s avant-garde, but only in its daring. Its narrative and Greta’s performance are spellbinding, like any good story. It’s scary. It’s sexy. It’s enraging. It makes you want to shut the door and be all by yourself. That’s. really. good.

Awwww. Now I’m blushing. Plus Carrie’s Story by Molly Weatherfield has been nominated as well, which means I’m in really good company — Carrie’s Story is, IMO, one of the best pieces of erotic fiction around.

If Susie is right, and Bending really does become the most influential erotica book of the decade… then you want to be one of the trendsetters who read it before it was cool, right?

The audiobook of Bending is available on Audible and Amazon. $19.95 for Audible non-members; less for Audible members. Discounted (as usual) on Amazon. And yes, I did the audiobook recording myself!

You can also get ebook editions on Kindle edition is available on Kindle, Nook, and at Smashwords in multiple formats, including Apple iPad/iBooks, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and most e-reading apps including Stanza, Aldiko, Adobe Digital Editions, and others. The print edition is coming soon.

After the jump is the description of the book, and some wonderfully flattering blurbs. [Read more…]
