The BedPost

Why should you write into the BedPost? Well, because frankly folks, I am nothing without you. (That’s right, I’m head over heels with my readers. Deal with it.) Without you guys I am merely a directionless rambler, let loose once a week in black and white print. The questions you (are not, but will) send inspire me to challenge myself to find answers.

Because here’s the down and dirty truth, ya’ll: I am a prude.

Yeah, yeah, I see the hypocrisy here.

I don’t know about Athens play parties until some great person sends me an email. And besides the walks-of-shames I see parading down the streets Sunday morning, I don’t know who is sleeping with so-and-so or how often. Unless you tell me what you want or what you are getting, I’ll remain totally and utterly clueless.

But here’s the beauty of it all: I am extremely open-minded. I’ll try it, I’ll dig and most importantly, I will listen.

So just tell me what you people want. Send an email. Tell me who to interview, who to annoy, what to care about, what to learn. I belong to my readers and they belong to me … in a very BDSM kind of way.

If you wanna see less relationship mush in favor of more tush in my columns than do something about it, you lazy, daisy, crazy people.

Your questions are totally anonymous and I am a vault. No one will know you sent a question. Unless they get a couple drinks in me. Kidding – your name is going to the grave with me. I. AM. SPARTICUS.

Love and other drugs,
The BedPost

P.S. I know it still says people in the email address and I am really only one person (with multiple personalities) but now I think it’s more like: The BedPost, people …. Like, in a get with the program kind of way. Guuuuurrrrlfrand.


Like the BDSM-ful column that ran earlier this year? Well, ever since the popularity boom of Fifty Shades of Grey, steamy page-turners are becoming more and more commonplace. These days readers are bypassing creepy interstate Adultmarts to get their kinks at Barnes and Nobles – thus increasing literacy too.

Bookworm or not, join in the fun by picking up one of these novels I found here. These eight sensuous reads will make you hot with every page turn. One of my favorites, Bad Behavior by Mary Gaitskill, is a collection of sexy short stories. Many of them focus on the same S&M type relationships as found in Shades.

In fact, if you Google “steamy reads” there are results on results of steamy reading lists for summer, or for mommy, or for any woman. Not much said about steamy reads for men, but I think Playboy can help you fellows out with that one. (You are, of course, more into visuals anyways.)

Books do more than just open up our brains; they give us fantasies too. When you read a line on a page and think “holy cow, that’s me,” well now you can think “shoot I really want someone to do that to me.” Let these tantric sex books take you to another world while also letting you bring a few tricks back home with you.

Also, if you are feeling super adventurous I have included this for you. It’s a link to kama sutra books on Amazon. Congrats, enjoy and please don’t injure yourselves. I need your readership.
