hot, sexy, cancer-free porn story

Look, a porn story.

I wrote this story in about an afternoon after an earlier story I wrote for Nerve (which I am much more fond of but which they thought had not enough sex and too much cancer; they had asked me to contribute and I foolishly neglected to read any of the recent fiction they'd published first) was rejected.

In the second story, I made sure to use more phrases like "exquisite parting" and "minimal lubrication." I'm pleased with the results. You could definitely have a prurient interest in this story.

The original, and nearly perfect, title for this story was "Fuck Right Now," but because of their advertisers, they can't put "Fuck" on the main page. So then I wanted it to be "Many Things are Displeasing," but they didn't like that and changed it to "New Year's Eve," but I didn't like that and at the last minute (like, last night) sent them a list of other titles to pick from:
  • "Come at Midnight"
  • "Revelry and Forgetting"
  • "Midnight on New Year's Eve"
  • "Thinly Disguised Nonfiction"
  • "Looking Down Naked on Terrifying Multitudes"

*******

Here's a picture Jami Attenberg took the other weekend on her roof & posted. W/ "the Chicago boys."

Actually, I think "Come at Midnight" is the cleverest of the bunch.

I have a slight preference for "Looking Down Naked on Terrifying Multitudes."

("Looking Down Naked on Terrifying Multitudes and Throwing Grapes at Them" would be even better but I knew that wouldn't fly.)

"Come at Midnight" is my second favorite. Regardless, they sent the email saying the story was retitled "New Year's Eve" roughly six hours before it was supposed to be published and I made that list in about ten minutes.
