Hate Is Hate

Word Count: 2603 I spend the majority of my time here on the blog writing about the colossal failures of the government, and I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that Romania hasn’t really been a democracy since June 1990. But there is one really big issue that has nothing to do with corrupt politicians…

Romanians on Trial in UK for Prostitution

A court in Britain heard disgusting details of a Romanian-run prostitution ring in a squalid neighborhood in Ribbleton: Websites were set up to market the young women as prostitutes and they were forced to work long hours with little sleep, handing over all their earnings to the men. Each day the women were allowed a…

A Brief Guide to What the Morality Police Will and Will Not Let You Write

Word Count: 3789 After the exciting release of my 2 new books for adults late Friday night, I’ve fielded a number of questions. I’ve also been corresponding with fellow “erotica” authors for a while now as I developed my stories, and I’ve spent untold number of hours researching the current situation in (English-language) adult literature….

Read my TWO new books for free!

WORD COUNT: 1700 Oh sweet, I wrote two awesome new books! Oh wait, did I mention these two books are very explicit adult books with very vivid descriptions of intimate acts? Yikes! I know, I know. For some of you, it’s kind of a shock that I’m now branching out into writing “porno” books. But…

Women and War

I’m currently restricted to prepay internet, which means that I pay for every byte, so I’ve spent a lot of time offline, plumbing the archives of my computer. As such, I’ve had the time and fortitude to re-read Herodotus, and it reminded me of the first time I went to Moldova. — As a brief…

Piki, Nebunul Oficial de Floresti

SCENE: Standing on a street corner in downtown Cluj-Napoca at around 8 o’clock at night. BUDDY #1: Oh my god, look over there. It’s Piki. BUDDY #2: Yeah, Piki the officially crazy guy of Floresti. Me: Why is he the officially crazy guy of Floresti? BUDDY #1: Because everyone in that village knows that his…

Lonely In Purple

Now hang on just a dang minute. The unsleeping eye picked up that Roberta Anastase, who has been the source of a lot of trouble on this blog, was celebrating her birthday today. Well that’s no big deal as we all have birthdays. But then I read this: Preşedintele Camerei Deputaţilor, Roberta Anastase, a declarat…

Absolutely Fabulous!

Wow! I must confess I did something quite different this past weekend, and I not only had an absolutely fabulous time but it was also some of the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Again, no names, but a few weeks ago I met a few guys here in Cluj-Napoca who were the…

Sunday Morning Philosophizin’

Dear readers who don’t like reading: be aware that this isn’t the post for you :) I want to thank the person who pointed me to this article (in Romanian) from Andrei Plesu. It’s a rather stupid piece, written in very dense and semi-academic, semi-religious language so I won’t translate it but it is an…

Gay Baby Panic in Timisoara

In 2007 on a very hot summer afternoon I was in Timisoara with a friend of mine. We were walking in the beautiful pedestrian area near the National Opera when a young man in a black t-shirt handed me a sheet of paper. I took it, not knowing what it was, and then stopped short…

Romanian Senate Kills Sex Worker Bill

Well, it looks like this was the week to repeal legislation. Besides rejecting the “witch tax” bill, the Romanian senate also voted against a bill which would’ve legalized “prostitution” or sex work. The text of the bill (in Romanian) is here (PDF) and it looks fairly reasonable to me. A lot of people (including Americans)…
