WHY THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER READ HARRY POTTER EROTICA THAN WATCH PORN

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

John Donne, “Valediction: Forbidding Mourning”

The Valediction seems quite fitting this morning. A poem about love, and loved ones leaving, about being connected despite distance and lack of a physical presence.  I’m not normally one to think of destiny or signs, but it is interesting that this would be the first post on my dash for the day, the same day my closest friend moved away. It was greatly comforting.
Here’s a link with a quick summation of it that cheered me up on this morning, August 17th, 7:00 a.m.

To you Emily. Have a safe trip, I will see you soon, though not quite soon enough.
