The Erotic Mind of Ashley Lister — Podcast #136 — 07/06/09

Hey sex fans,

I have an outstanding show in store for you today. We return to our roots in this series of podcasts called The Erotic Mind. After mining a very rich vein of visual artists over the past several arlbandwswingersfullcolourweeks, we come back to the realm of the written word and how this series got started.

Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to an extremely talented and prolific author from the UK, Ashley Lister. He has a wicked sense of humor and a big fat uncut…erotic mind worthy of our serious investigation, don’t cha know.

Devoted fans of written erotica will, no doubt, be familiar with my guest; his work is freakin’ everywhere. He writes fiction, nonfiction and poetry. He’s a teacher, columnist, reviewer and contributor at The Erotic Readers & Writers Association. In fact, Ashley has an unparalleled pedigree for this series; and we’re so grateful that he’s decided to “slum it” with us.

For more of Ashley, be sure to visit his site HERE!

Ashley and I discuss:

  • His prolific output.
  • Writing under his own name.
  • Building sexual tension in his fiction.
  • What sparks the images in his erotica.
  • Skillfully writing in different voices.
  • The differences between romance literature and erotica.

As a special treat, Ashley shares with us two mouth-watering pieces of the fruit of his Erotic Mind. The first is humorous erotic verse. The second will be of particular interest to the many swingers in my audience. Don’t miss this people!

The Erotic Mind of René Capone — Podcast #132 — 06/22/09

Hey sex fans,

Judging from the comments pouring in from all over, I guess ya’ll are really enjoying these rene_facespecial pride month podcasts, huh?  The last two weeks I featured the brilliant work of Mike. from MikeMen.  Today and next week we have as our guest a gay visual artist of a completely different stripe.  As you know, these podcasts are part of The Erotic Mind
series.  We converse with noted erotic artists from all over the world in an effort to try to uncover something of the creative process involved in this specialized art form.

Today I have the honor of introducing you to a friend, someone I’ve known for several years.  He is charming, funny and oh so talented.  He is René Capone.

René is both an artist and a storyteller.  In fact, I think he’s best described as an artist-storyteller.  He imbues his creations, both lifelike and fantasy, with something of his own nature and life experience.  He says it’s the job as an artist to explore the fundamental emotions of life; love, hate, jealousy, fear, anger and passion.  And he does his job with a childlike simplicity, which is absolutely remarkable.

René’s work is a refreshing departure from the more explicit work of some of the other artists I’ve featured in this series.  But as we’ll find out from René himself, eroticism has many dimensions.  If art is truthful, he says, it will also be erotic.

René and I discuss:

  • The therapeutic nature of his art.
  • His graphic novel, Hedgehog Boy.
  • How he got his start as an artist, as an erotic artist.
  • The distinction, if any, between an artist and an illustrator.
  • The distinction, if any, between erotica and pornography.

Discover René and his memorable artwork on his site HERE.

Today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to the first of my special Pride guests.  He is the spectacular artist, who goes by the name Mike.  Perhaps you’ve already seen some of his distinctive work; it’s hard to miss, don’t cha know.  His images are all over the internet as well as in magazines and in books.

Mike and I discuss:

  • How he got his start as an artist; as an erotic artist.
  • Where he finds his models.
  • What erotic art means to him.
  • The difference, if any, between an artist and an illustrator.
  • What makes some of his work erotic and other stuff pornographic.
